Oh not all of them are despicable, just the ones that use it as an excuse for hatred and bigotry, who follow some parts but ignore other parts, and those that wish to force it upon others and their children without their consent.
Not everyone
Just the ones posting on this forum :)
A tiny percentage of them
I am sure there are some good Christians out there, just none here so far.
I like to consider myself a good Christian. I believe in Christ. I REALLY like a lot of what He had to say about helping the poor and disenfranchised. It's very hard for me not to judge others; especially those who are just nasty and obstinately ignorant.

Christ was reported to have said, "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own?" Sometimes I'd rather just pluck the other person's eye out (glances at Kimare).

I try to give to people as much as I can--whatever they ask for anything in return. That tends to make me a poor capitalist.

Interestingly, back when I was trying to come to terms with my orientation, I thought, "I'm not sure how I can be a Christian and gay at the same time." But God showed me a way.

My point is that I know so many "good Christians" who are not like these bozos (see, there I go again) on this forum.

It's still around. It's enjoyed particularly by that lovely Christian founded group known as the Ku Klux Klan.
People are free to believe their group is Christian based or not. Jim Jones also claimed to be a Christian group. We already know many use the name falsely, did you just find that out? Dumb you! Do you enjoy Pol Pot or North Korea because they run or ran an atheist country?

Since you seem to think you know so much about us Atheists, you should already know that on the whole we tend to know your book very well. It's how we are able to dismiss it so easily.
Seems like every post that the atheist post can easily be explained. Maybe before posting your silly verses here and there and between, research it and find the meaning so you won't look so foolish.

Jizzy rushed into a bar and breathlessly asked the bartender to pour him three straight scotches. The bartender complied, and watched as he downed them one after another.

"Why three scotches?" the bartender asked as he paused for breath.

"Well, to be honest, I'm celebrating my first blow-job."

"Hell, congratulations, the next one's on me."

"No, thanks," Jizzy replied, "if the first three didn't get the taste out of my mouth, I don't think another one will."

YUK!YUK!YUK! Whoop!~Whoop! Ah good times!

We have one!( so far )

I agree, I donít have a problem with believers that DONT try and force their interpretation of it on everyone else. That donít try to get into our childrenís lives without our consent.

Honestly I defend your rights to your religion, just as I defend the right of other religions to their religions. Or folks with no religion to their choice not to.

You and I donít have a problem.

You seem to be missing the point. A "good Christian" are like the so called religious people that Jesus despised. The better then others that don't look in their own eye. the world has always had plenty of "good" people. You become a member of God's family by being born into it. The Lord Jesus said, "Unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).

What's funny is as much as big d and johah1 hates Christians, I bet he won't say any thing bad towards you for stating your belief.

Just imagine a painting of Jesus on black felt kneeling at the rock with the glow around his head like so many like to paint him with a bubble caption over his head.

Don't think there would be such an uproar if the infected would just remain among themselves and their counterparts that also choose to be infected. If a guy chooses to bend over and play in sht or chooses to lean over and suck some guy's dk; that should be between them. The problem is that they seem to want everybody else to choose to be infected too. Even worse, they seem to want everyone to pretend that playing in sht n males sucking dk is "normal" when we know that its not. It could be a good thing if they would all gather among themselves and establish their own. Then the rest of the world, and children, could be relatively safe from infection sht and this particular deviancy. My understanding is that they simply cannot help themselves; that they face a mandatory compulsion to play in sht, suck dk and molest children. And ok, if that's their thing that's their thing. But at least be honest about it. If you on dk then be on dk. If some woman chooses to suck psy and the partner is willing then eat it up. People should only "really" object when their mandatory compulsion and sht-based deviancy is directed to children; and that seems to be what they want, freedom to infect children in some mad hope that the more they infect the more "normal" they themselves will feel.

Yes Mr Atheist Judge. LOL But I bet if I had more positive views on the gay lifestyle or if I was gay, then I would be a good Christian in your atheist world?

So you take back every bad thing you said about Christians if they're gay. Priceless.

Marriage isn't defined SOLELY as a bond between man and woman. In 13 states and in 16 countries around the globe, marriage is also defined as a LEGAL bond between same-gender couples.
I know it kills you each time somebody points that out to you.
Oh... By the way... I never did get an answer as to why you were forced to change your name.
Would you care to elaborate?
I am referring to the realistic definition of marriage, you are referring to the legal definition of marriage. It doesn't kill me to note the difference.
I was banned because I made an honest observation about the Trayvon Martin case, and the state of the nation, in general. I made a "Politically Incorrect" statement. This means that the statement that I made was not couched in "negro friendly and sympathetic" terms, but in realistic terms. It is a sad fact that in America today, even our freedom of speech is no longer guaranteed. In spite of the Constitution. Even the use of the word "Negro" is now considered to be a racist term. We are expected to use hyphenated words that qualify the "American-ness" of citizens this nation, words that pay homage to the injustice of their very presence in this country, and seem to set them above the rest of us. Is that elaborate enough?

I know who you are.
I don't know if it will allow me to post it, but I will try.
I posted that if it were an "African-American" (not the term that I used) on "Caucasian-American" (Also, not the term that I used) crime, we'd not have heard about it. I also pointed out that the media now covers up the race of "African-American" criminals, when reporting on crimes, in order to reduce racial tension. This got me banned.
