I've never in my life seen a Christian spew such hateful, venomous bile in my life; that seems to be the exclusive domain of Atheists such as
yourself. This Camping character is a nutjob sure, but you are painting ALL Christians, and people of other faiths, with a VERY wide and inaccurate
brush. I'll take your assertions apart one at a time:
Well, I said it before and I'll say it again, ask the gays if Christians spew hatred. Also ask the abortion doctors, you know, the dead ones. Also,
check throughout history because religion has killed the majority of people, through wars and trying to prove their god is right over others, as that
is what every holy book states...
1. There is a thing called "Separation of Church and State" in the US. A simple prayer is not allowed in schools anymore as they were when I
grew up. Schools these days are taking special pains to expunge religion from not only the schools, but the textbooks as well. Your claim that ANY
school board is "Creationist" in any way is patently absurd.
I'm not sure where you live but church and state are no longer seperating anywhere in western culture. People will not elect a president if they
thought he was an atheist, why his religious beliefs matter is beyond me. Again, there is a huge battle right now because religious people want
evolution taken out of text books, because it goes against their almighty...
1.1. I won't speak for other religions, but Christianity is the largest provider of food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and medical
care for those who would otherwise die. Just by way of example, Christian charities around the world provided twice as much aid to the Muslim victims
of the Boxing Day tsunami than did the world's governments; and TEN times as much as other Muslim countries around the world. Iran donated a whole
$67,000 to tsunami relief; Christian charities provided BILLIONS.
I had to laugh here, because I have this arguement with Catholics all the time, the Vatican makes 100 billion or so a year and that alone could solve
the hunger issue throughout the world, but yet hunger and famine still persists. Please don't use that argument as EVERYONE knows the church could and
should do much, much more.
2. Anyone with a brain realizes that Jesus was a Jew; olive-skinned and dark-haired. Depictions of a "old white guy in the sky" went out of
vogue in the Middle Ages.
Yeah Jesus was a Jew, and when the commandments were written they were about respecting your fellow Jew, not man, but Jew.
3. I think you're just insane. No Christian I know supports the rape of women or child molestations. If you're talking about the Catholic
Church in re. child molestations, I can guarantee that while it has happened, it is not supported or encouraged - it is punished. When it has
happened, and covered up, it is such a horrible betrayal of a priest's position of trust that it gets a lot more attention than the rapes and
molestations committed by those influenced by Satan; but I guarantee you that the incidences are statistically insignificant when compared to similar
crimes committed by those with no religious affiliation.
If you go to church, give money or support the church you are supporting rape and molestation. If pepsi was raping people and I was still buying pepsi
I would be supporting them. The pope has had accusations of molestation brought about him before, and that is not counting how many time he has
covered up what he has been informed of. None of the priests were punished, they were moved, to another congregation to molest different little boys.
Satan does not exist, so that argument means nothing, and yes rapes and molestations occur outside the church, of course, but, they are not by men who
claim they are holier than thou, people who were in a respected position and trusted with little kids.
If a school teacher were doing it, their punishments would be leaps and bounds above the priests.
4. First, I'd like to know where you got this "2 million" number. Did you count them all? Did you read the Bible and attribute every single
death to The Almighty? And the Devil is a coward; he NEVER does his own dirty work. Al he does is lead people away from God, and when humans are
separated from The Lord they lose whatever spirituality they have and revert to what they are - animals. If you were to HONESTLY count up those the
Devil has led astray and subsequently damned - you'll arrive at a figure in the BILLIONS. God on the other hand is "not willing that ANY should
4.1) God isn't against people having knowledge, He is against people having knowledge they aren't ready for. No responsible Father, which I believe
God to be, is going to put His children in a position where they are in over their head. Adam and Eve were spiritual children who were not ready to
"become like The Most High." It's the same thing as not giving a 3-year-old a loaded gun.
The Devil is a liar. He rebelled against The Almighty and LOST. He's also a petulant child who wants to hurt God in the only way he can, which is to
lead His children into damnation; and he uses people like you to do his dirty work. How does it feel to be used like that? I don't think that you will
like the reward that your "good guy" Satan will give you for all of your faithful service.
You need to get on your knees my friend, and reflect on why it is that you have such hatred towards people who have never done a thing to you.
I will bow to no one, ever. There is no god, he is in the same category as Santa Claus for me. It is a way for people to feel better about themselves.
God gets all the good and none of the bad, people made up "Satan" for this. Another cop out.
An if you look up the percentage of wars fought over religion you would find a lot are exactly in that context. Deny it or not, religious people are a
detriment to society, and on a forum where the motto is deny ignorance we a flowing with it in a religious thread.
Oh, just for clarification, I do no mean anyone that believes in a higher spiritual plain or whatever, I'm talking about god believers, the ones that
go to church. God is a religious word, about a jealous person who hates if you don't bow down to him. I have read the holy books, and they are all the
same BS, those books are what made me an atheist.
Religious people do not equal spiritual people....
If any spelling mistakes it because I am on an iPad and it's hard as hell to break it into sections like this.
