BELIEFS = OBJECTIVE FACTS.
Belief in god = belief
Religious Extremists using God as a means to kill people = fact.
How is that objective?
I know plenty of atheist psychologists who'd agree with you to a point. I know one or two who'd assert that your allegations are off the wall
and straight out of your own beliefs and biases.
What allegations? Religious extremism, like any other extremism, is dangerous in most cases.
That's not an allegation, is a fact supported by pretty much the entire history of man.
Moderates don't go out and kill people for no reason...
Christians have as much and more objective foundation for defining hate almost opposite, in some cases on some issues.
I never stated that ALL religious people are fundamentalists, nor did I say that religion was inherently wrong or dangerous. I simply stated that
Are the founding and ruling RELIGIONS ON ATS.
Oh lay off of the generalizations. I'm neither an Atheist, nor a subscriber of the religion of science.
I think for myself and make up my own mind, regardless of other people's opinions.
is but a hint of the tyranny and horror looming at the hand of the oligarchy eager and diligent to remove Christians and particularly
Pentecostal, evangelical Christians off the planet tot
I have no desire to see that happen what so ever. I would just like those who, again for the millionth time, use religion as a means to harm people
or otherwise cause chaos in the world, to quietly go away and be replaced by their moderate counterparts, who out number them.
Your "lofty" notions of "sanity" excluding Christians will NOT help you any then.
Right, it's a lofty notion, to suggest that people who use religion to kill other people are insane.
Are you serious? You would consider those people sane? You talk as if I describe all religious people as being bad and insane. That's the complete
opposite of anything I've ever stated on ATS>
I've always stated that I know plenty of good Christians and Muslims and other kind of religious folk.
They aren't the problem. People who enjoy using religion, again, as a vehicle for power and hate and violence are the problem.
The fact that you don't wish anybody to investigate, or call that out, is very telling.
