Just to be accurate here, more people have been killed in the name of atheism (Stalin, Mao, et al) than by all religions combined throughout history. I would go so far as to say that more people died under atheism in one year than all religions combined throughout history. Atheism will kill hundreds of thousands this year, far more than Christians, Muslims, etc will kill for religious versus political reasons.<quoted text>
I think what he's saying is they AREN'T following Christ's teachings.
And from the posts for the right-wing "Christians" on here I tend to agree.
Not that I agree with Wiggley's perceptions of [a] God but more people have been killed, abused, imprisoned, harassed, demeaned and diminished in the name of God than by any other reasoning.
It might be interesting to SEE those preaching the most Christianity practicing the most Christianity...without using the 'we are all sinners' and 'we all are imperfect' as an excuse not to.
Also, using religion as an excuse to do something doesn't mean the religion actually condones or encourages it. Lots of folks use the "God told me to" in order to justify affairs. Doesn't mean that religion encourages affairs.
