Why do so many Atheists hate Christianity?!?!
You are taking individual story’s and quotes from the bible and using them as ammo for your argument.
The Bible is a message as a whole... not the individual story’s and quotes within. You have to view the book as a whole
or you simply leave it wide open to abuse and misuse.
You are also displaying a perverse modern day westernised attitude toward the word Virgin... A Virgin was merely an unmarried woman... not the perverse rapping of children you seem to be suggesting.
not the perverse rapping of children you seem to be suggesting.
The new "Hate-Crimes" that were enacted does criminalize the word of God in alot of ways.
I DON'T HATE CHRISTIANS, I HATE WHAT THEY DO
I think it all needs to be thrown out, think and learn on your own, we can survive without myth.
hey there, how are you today?
a little thought experiment, communist china used atheism as an excuse to oppress the people of tibet through destruction of it's religiously based system of governance. in reality, the atheism and the religious beliefs weren't the issue, the communists wanted something and found justification after the fact.
i agree, there is a disturbing and distasteful thread in the old testament. i believe that it is based more in tribal justification for behavior after the fact than it is in religious thought. jesus was against this behavior and condemned it publicly.
this is why it has as much to do with christianity as the oppression of tibet has to do with atheism.
I would be apt to carry a sign that says,"Repent,for the end is near",but I wouldn't think that is dangerous to anyone!
- I am a woman and the bible relegates women to property of their husbands and that we are worth less. I have a problem with that.
- I am a mom and the bible speaks of dashing babies against the rocks and killing the first born. I have a problem with that and so should most people.
- I value intelligence and critical thinking. The bible has a problem with that, you know, with all that stuff about women not able to teach, and if they must, it whould only be women. That is not how knowledge should be shared.
- I don't think that I am dirty after childbirth or after a monthly cycle. The bibe does and I have a problem with that.
-my husband is of a different race and the bible is also pretty clear in its disdain for that as well.
