I do not hate the people who follow religion or the people who use it to further their lives in a positive manner. I do, however, despise the idiots who use it to justify their negative actions and preach to me like I am some sort of moron. I despise the fact religion is hypocritical and immoral when you get down to the nitty gritty facts but when it is pointed out you are branded a heretic, blasphemer or devil worshiper or some other non sensical, generic term.
1. The Bible condoning violence but slamming Islam for being a 'violent religion'
I am going to quote a book from the bible so you guys can check it out for yourself.
2 c "You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, d on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3 "And e you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their 1 wooden images with fire; you shall cut down the carved images of their gods and destroy their names from that place."
So, now we have conclusive proof that the Bible condones the destruction of nations which oppose an 'all loving, all merciful God'. Some God, huh? This doesn't take into account the fact that the Bible also condones the stoning and killing of women and homosexual men.
There are numerous quotes which I won't post here. Just search them yourself.
2. The Bible also says to sell your material possessions and give to the poor and needy.
Well funnily enough the Church makes $420 billion a year back in 2000 and has a reserve fund of some $1 Trillion. This doesn't take into account the Churches/land it owns.
3. The widespread corruption and cover ups of pedophilia by the Clergy.
Don't believe me? I have two words for you. Murphy Report.
4. Bringing death to millions during the 'Counter Reformation' and hiding knowledge that would have disproved their 'God exists' theory (e.g. Witch hunts).
