I think in generel christianity is the best religion. I do agree that it is being attacked alot nowadays, but i also feel that those pagans are trying to resurface aren't they. The pagans have never actually left the world seen, but just left the face of society.

Well, I hate Christianity because its just stupid and the religion has been changed so many times that its not even close to the original religion. Another reason I am not friendly towards them is because they used to kill people for not believing in their god. The last reason is because of all the scientific repression they have caused.

I've said it many times before, I find the whole Christian persecution complex hilarious, they just love to flaunt how they have a huge 80-90% majority and then in the very same breath whine and moan about how terribly oppressed they are by the 4 or 5% of the population who disagrees with them.
This is, after all a conspiracy theory website and at the "Church" level (i.e. the establishment rather than the believers) there do seem to be a lot of traits in "Christianity" that would point to conspiracy. Consequently there will be people who will discuss them here.
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck there's a small possibility that we are dealing with a small waterfowl in the Anitidae family (possibly misquoted from Douglas Adams). You have to admit, there are a lot of things that the Church are or have been involved in that are very comfortably fit into this website.
I think where I have been unwillingly drawn into threads such as this is where people will label themselves first as a christian, and then as a person. I have nothing against personal faith. I think it's great. But let's keep it that way. Personal. If you present yourself primarily as a christian, you are automatically tarring yourself with the same brush as all the negative types who have claimed the same.
I'm not sure which comedian said it first (eventually they all tell each others' jokes) about the football star being interviewed about the amazing touchdown. His words are, "I want to thank my Lord Jesus Christ for making that happen." Now, if he'd dropped it, would he say the same thing? "I want to thank my Lord Jesus Christ for making me drop that ball!"
Nope, glory goes to Jesus Christ (who obviously isn't involved in the incompletions).
Because we know you people just can't be happy unless you feel persecuted. That whole martyrdom complex, where you only feel your life has meaning if you're Daniel in the lion pit, Jesus on the cross, or Jim Bakker in the whorehouse.
Actually it's because most Atheists on the internet live in countries that are ruled by the Christian version of the angry smiteful penis-mutilator god and his zombie avatar. Since these ludicrous yutzes are the ones who are making all the idiotic policies, making the outrageous demands, and setting bibles on fire for not being translated "right"... these are hte penis-mutilators who get the heat.
Atheists in Muslim countries such as Turkey or Lebanon speak out against Islam. Israeli atheists talk about Judaism and Islam. Indian atheists speak out about the wackiness of Hinduism. And so on.
It's all about which crazy cult is imposing their particular brand of superstitious nonsense, bigotry, and inanity on a given atheists' country.

By this warped logic... is no one allowed to start a thread regarding an injustice for fear of being accused of baiting the perpetrators of the injustice???
Would a woman not allowed to start a thread asking why some men are sexist???
Would this not be a legitimate topic of conversation, especially if she had suffered at the hand of sexist men???
Why do so many Atheists hate Christianity?!?!
Now, this is just a guess.. But I think most people who don't like Christians don't like you guys because there was alot of torturing/burning/enslavement/conquest/looting/rape/etc. done by Christians back in the day. Especially to non-Christians, who were fair game for whatever came to mind. I'm not saying its the fault or responsibility of the Christians out there today..
