No dice. Christians are about 85% of the country. That persecution nonsense carries no weight with me. You are in control of this country. To put that to the test, imagine two candidates for the Presidency. One is openly atheist and the other is openly Christian. All other things being equal, which candidate do you think will get the nod?<quoted text>
There was no point in doing it in that manner though.
Obviously I was trying to be comical with my analogy, but my point still stands. It is only insulting to the believers when you try to make their beliefs sound silly, it doesn't prove any validity or lack of. It only proves to insult. Calling God a sky fairy, invisible daddy, in a suit, etc etc, and calling believers sheep, ignorant, illogical, etc. is only meant to ridicule. It reminds me of a middle school bully.
If you don't want believers getting in your face, don't throw rocks by treating them this way. The ones that come at you telling you that you are going to hell deserve everything you got. But don't lump all believers in this bucket and attack us all. It's prejudice at its finest and insulting to the ones that are respectful and want to carry on a real conversation.
That's a rhetorical question. We all know the answer.
Anyway, facts are facts. You believe in a magic man who sent his son to die so he could pay a debt we owed his father (who is also him). Now we can all live forever. And there was a talking snake too.
I'm sorry that it sounds silly when you say it out loud. But that's the way it is. I can't help what the Bible says. If it quacks like a duck...
