That is so true, fortunately they are in the decline.
Hate just does not sell as well as it used to.
You sell it pretty good against those despicable people who believe in God. And polygamists who "use polygamy to commit their crimes of child rape and welfare fraud."

You even insist your brand of hate against poly sells well with your "no one supports polygamy it has a bad image which is well deserved" schtick.

Of course you cover your ass by always adding the disclaimer and lie "But I'd vote for it" as if you get to vote on who marries who.

Is this the same Bible that was written by slave owners? You know the one, don't you, that they used to support the buying and selling of human beings for centuries.
What happened to that Bible?
It's still around. It's enjoyed particularly by that lovely Christian founded group known as the Ku Klux Klan.

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.

<quoted text>Hey don't give me the atheist sermon. I was taught to see things as they are. How dare I stand up for my beliefs...LOL I'm sure you could do the same thing as all the atheists do and take a verse here and then one there. When you read a book, do you read a sentence there and and one here? Stop throwing your atheist religion at me.
No, that's how fundamentalists read it. a verse here, a verse there. That's why the only Leviticus code they can site is about men lying with men, while at the same time completely ignoring that the same codes state that cutting one's hair, eating shellfish, sending menstruating women out of the home, and touching pig skin (you know, like a football) are all equally abominable to your Sky Santa.

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.

You got it!:)

They don’t follow the bible, they pick and choose what phrase they will follow ( and try to force others to follow against their will ) and which parts they will just ignore as nonsense.

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.

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?

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 don’t have a problem with believers that DONT try and force their interpretation of it on everyone else. That don’t try to get into our children’s 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 don’t 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.
