Yes they were a Christian sect,,,,, there was no difference between the Peoples Temple and a 1000 other Christian Churches scattered around the US... Some play with snakes, some roll around in the floor and speak jibberish.... Some wear funny hats and some don't use electricity... All claim belief in Jesus Christ as the son of God....
You have no more right to say they were not Christian than the Methodist saying your sect is not Christian... Of the JW's or the LDS or ect...
Christians will nearly always label those in Christian sects different to theirs as not being "true Christians".

Southern Baptists hate the fact that Mormons and Catholics are Christians.

Conversely, you'll never hear an atheist saying that another atheist wasn't a true atheist.

Sorry....

Hey , those people were paid for what they did They want credit , have em call ,visa ,Am ex or master charge.
We have documented your type of reasoning , You judged both your parents to both be delusional , you dishonored your uncle's request for a Catholic funeral by casting aspersions on the priest who conducted these services .
You attempted to create an issue where none was warranted.
None of those present raised an objection to the proceedings , only you , in your misguided and distorted mind could find fault with the events that took place ,assuming such was the case.
Moreover , your mental dysfunction goes beyond the limits of irrationality.
You pass judgement on A God that you do not believe exists,
You judge the actions of Moses ,whom you also do not believe existed, and the events written in the OT,which you claim did not occur and judge them to be wrong based on American Law.
It is no wonder you have not succeeded in deconverting any of the unsuspecting victims you prey on.
Stak Rosch is right.
Many of those who deconvert wind up being afflicted by suicidial tendencies and serious mental problems........Yikeeessssssss ss
Whattamessyougotyouselfinto Kingfish
About half of what you just said are lies, and I grow tired of repeating myself.

That is because you evidently don't really know the theme of the Bible... God's Kingdom and it does not carry with it any scare tactics but shows what it will be like to live under his ridership See Revelation 21:3,4
So you claim to know what I know? How arrogant. You have failed to show what I said is incorrect through logic and reason. So you resorted to claiming, I just do not know. Sounds like what a ten year old would say. Grow up.

Perfect analogy. Some cannot handle the withdrawal of having a false promise of an afterlife, and things of this sort. Their religious teaching did not prepare them for the realities of the world as they actually are.
Now Curious has resorted to calling us, mentally unstable, in order to support his claims.
And surely Sista will not call him a bigot.

I guess in your immoral world, if payment is made, thanks is unneeded. I bet your waiter spits in your food.
Is your mother paid for cooking your food?
The food story was just an example. I see examples of this all the time.

BIBLE
The Holy Scriptures, the inspired Word of Jehovah, acknowledged as the greatest book of all times because of its antiquity, its total circulation, the number of languages into which it has been translated, its surpassing greatness as a literary masterpiece, and its overwhelming importance to all mankind. Independent of all other books, it imitates no other. It stands on its own merits, giving credit to its unique Author. The Bible is also distinguished as having survived more violent controversy than any other book, hated as it is by many enemies.
So if the majority approves, it must be true?
I guess when Zeus was the most popular, he was real?
And did you factor in all he holy wars and inquisitions that made for the popularity? The bible was forced upon people for pretty much, the entire history of its existence.

Then your little story tells of a future holy war that will cleanse the world of all other religions. The ultimate solution, if you will.

Your holy book would not be so popular without force and scare tactics. But I see your criteria is, whatever works for popularity.

Now the Koran is popular, and not all that far behind the bible. It did so in about half the time. So if the Koran surpasses popularity, will you convert?

I would guess it all depends.... Some B'Lever's require playing with beads and constantly repeating little sayings, some require you beat your self with a tree branch while some it doesn't much matter if you haven't had your head dunked in water first...

You are becoming more and more irrational. Do you know that?
Have you always been this confused or did you receive a blow to the head recently?
Or....more likely.... are you just a troll posing as a fool?
(These are rhetorical questions. Please don't feel that you need to respond. You won't make any sense anyway.)
Witchetty , let us put things in their proper perspective. The main ingredient needed to qualify as a fool is to be an Atheist,which I am not.
According to one of your Atheist leaders , it is those who deconvert who become afflicted by irrationality and mental confusion , among other maladies.
I do believe that in YOUR mental state of confusion ,you may well be confusing me with many of your fellow Atheists.
Your state of confusion emanates from your allowing your mind to deceive you by believing that an unguided mindless process controlled by a nonintelligent ,nonliving and nonconscious imaginary power is responsible for creating the universe and everything therein.
You claim monkeys as your ancestors and equate humans with cockroaches and other vermin.... I pity the fool , is an appropriate proverb for your condition and those who have been deceived into believing as you do.
Yikes , now that Christmas is over and your talents as a Christmas tree decorator won't be needed for the next 11 months , whatareyagonnado to earn a living.
You may wanna contact one of the many faith based organizations created by believers in order to help the needy. Cest la vie
Don't bother contacting Krak or Q They too busy dropping acid and have no chump change to spare.....

And there in is where you fail the logic part... I don't want you to Believe anything.. I don't give a rats a$$..... You have mistaken me for someone that cares what you believe... I don't... I only reply to you and others as I see fit and ignore when I wish without concern of your or others personal belief systems ....
Those that engage with rational, logical discourse on whatever subject is fun to interact with as I enjoy a good debate or discussion on subjects that interest Me and I learn new things in the process... Those that engage in irrational, illogical brain farts tend to just give me comedic relief.....
Naaah, Much to your chagrin and dismay ,you have mistaken me for one that would not hold you accountable for all the contradictory and irrelevant nonsense you bombard this thread with.
It is impossible to have been raised in Kentucky while at the same time living in Detroit ,as you have claimed.
It is impossible to attend high school in kentucky at age 15 , while claiming to have moved to Detroit at age 12 and living there till age 22.
You claim all this in an effort to impress us with your so called accomplishments.
I do believe those are the behavioural patterns of those suffering from low self esteem and in dire need to draw attention to themselves.
I am thrilled and overjoyed that you don't give a rat's (*) as to whether I believe you or not.
You'd best keep your rat's (*) as I don't believe you.
I leave that chore to gulluble fools like Lodi and Krak ,fools will believe anything that is irrational and incoherent....

Unable to deal with the issues I posted , you choose to make an issue at my intentional mispelling of your name and the word cunsecuenses. The last refuge of a fool.
Anyhow , Stak Rosch is the coordinator for several Atheist organizations in Philadelphia ,as you well know by now. Obviously ,He is a leader in the Atheist community.
That you and the other Atheists deny his leadership ,due to the fact that he called you out
for not wanting to deal with the problem s of suicide and mental depression afflicting your community,does not invalidate his leadership.
One can well understand your selfish reasons and those of other Atheists for feeling that way.
Once the unsuspecting public is made aware of these maladies , who in their right mind would accept your unfounded opinions that there is no God , that they will not be held accountable for their misdeeds in this life and that they can establish their own moral code based on their selfish interest and desires,where they can then claim they need not be ashamed of anything they have ever done.

...just as valid, allow the introduction of: Eric, The God-Eating Magic Penguin. God can't exist because of Eric, he's The God Eating Magic Penguin! Since Eric is God Eating by definition, he has no choice but to eat God. So, if God exists, he automatically ceases to exist as a result of being eaten. Unless you can prove that Eric doesn't exist, God doesn't exist. Even if you can prove that Eric doesn't exist, that same proof will also be applicable to God. There are only two possibilities = either you can prove that Eric doesn't exist or you can't...in both cases it logically follows that God doesn't exist.

You are still in a state of denial,as one of your Atheist leaders has stated.
You refuse to admit that Suicide and depression afflicts many of those who deconvert and that Atheists refuse to address that issue,much as you have done.
You dismiss the charges made against you by one of your leaders by claiming it is not a problem that these maladies affect the members of your faith.
How calloused the members of your faith are?

Not as calloused as a faith that favours slavery, genocide and killing homosexuals.

Your unscrupulous and deceitful attempt to mislead the unsuspecting victims you prey on will not go unchallenged.
Obviously , when you attempt to deconvert one of your victims , you do so by voicing your unfounded opinions and beliefs as if your opinions and beliefs were based on some truth that you have personally experienced or that you are aware of.
Moreover ,what these poor souls are told is that their deconversion will lead them to some sort of freedom and a happier life.
What you neglect to inform them is that their decision may well lead to suicide , suicidial tendencies , deep depression and other unwanted maladies that will impact their wellbeing and that of their families.
Not only are these poor souls intentionally misinformed ,but, when they have to confront these terrible maladies , Atheists are unable to provide them with any assistance and they are left hung out to dry.
If they want help , they have to turn to those whom they abandoned , their friends and families.
On the other hand,when someone converts , they are filled with joy,not suicidial tendencies and depression.
They also are provided support for further growth in their new found faith by caring believers.....
