Wrong. Many of us have. Some of you prefer the psycho-babble of self-importance on a mission of doom posting their degenerated thoughts on the redesigned religion of their choice on topix. See how many souls you'll rake in for the dark powers in high places here. That is your intent, is it not?

Certainly does show who you and your ilk are and what you choose to offer to mankind. A word comes to mind. Do NOT compare your actions, mentality, and lack of compassion to others, as you by no means represent the "norm" of anything.

I wasn't posting of faith but of responsibility or the lack or it found among people in power. My point being that Augustine is not qualified to be advising people on responsibility for the action of others since he helped to cause the deaths of thousands.
If anything, The Crusades and the Inquisition are excellent examples of why religion just not be included in government. But what am i seeing on all over the news ?
Religious politicians trying their best to deny women birth control of ALL fcking things. Arguing that it shouldn't be included in heath insurance coverage, trying to ban abortion, etc. A panel of men and no women discussing women's reproductive issues ? WTF ?
When the faith stops trying to insert it's self into everyone's life via the government then I will stop pointing out the atrocities of the leaders of the faith. Because history is the best example of why the faith needs to keep to the churches and stay out of the courtrooms and people's bedrooms.

I agree.

Innocent people,who were not even satanists were jailed, lost their jobs, homes and even their kids over that nonsense.
Still, in the south , exp NC,SC and Alabama, there are plenty of cases of pagans not satanists, having to battle the courts to keep their kids. All because some teacher or neighbor found out the child's parents were pagans.
I am from the south, southeast AL.
I married 40+ years ago, and moved away.
I returned a few years ago to take care of my mother.
It was like stepping back in time.....
lol
some changes, yet, so much the same as the 50-60s.

You have no idea who belongs to whom, and its not for you to say.

I don't believe in your bible or your god, therefore, I have no reason to be careful as you suggest.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen.
"Change the things I can". If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is, then have the courage.
Na, your confused, thats what christianity and the bible does. The prayer you mention was written by a christian monk and that is a small part of it.

The worst part is Christians are Pagans, they don't know what the word means. They have god, Jesus, the holy ghost (whatever that is supposed to be), Michael, Gabriel, Satan, Mephistopheles, Asmodeus, Raphael, plus a host of other angels and demons...sorry people, that is PAGAN!

Do come as my guest and indulge in the fruits of our endeavors at our Monastery Brewery. I have something particularly unique you may find to your liking.

In Cognac — the region of France, not the drink — delicate little flowers bloom on the vines of Ugni Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and other grape varietals for just a few days every June. In order to savor these tiny blossoms throughout the year, the makers of L'Esprit de June pick and gather them by hand, add them to pure grape spirit and then blend them together to make a refreshingly fragrant and floral liqueur. L'Esprit de June makes for a delicious drink on its own, whether chilled or on ice, but also adds a certain je ne sais quoi to any cocktail.

Come and bask on the fruits and flowers of the vine.

What you fail to understand is that when you continue to put down a person's beliefs like you and others likes to do then sooner or later its going t come back to bite you on the butt.
How many of your Satanists back in those days went out and snatched women and children in the middle of the night,drank their blood and sacrificed them unto Satan?
Quite a great many of them.
So before you start casting down your own judgment on Christians and what they believe look to the history of what Satanism truly is and what they did and you will find that it has nothing to do with Atheism whatsoever.
Name a LaVeyan Satanist that snatched women and children, drank their blood and sacrificed them.

Please.

Oh dear. Well sport, you don't know what "Pagan" means either, so maybe we need all receive a short briefing and education:

Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic"[1]) is a blanket term, typically used to refer to non-Abrahamic, indigenous polytheistic religious traditions.
Isis holding a sistrum and an oinochoe.(Roman artwork from the Hadrian period (117–138 CE).)

It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe and North Africa before Christianization. In a wider sense, extended to contemporary religions, it includes most of the Eastern religions and the indigenous traditions of the Americas, Central Asia, Australia and Africa; as well as non-Abrahamic folk religion in general. More narrow definitions will not include any of the world religions and restrict the term to local or rural currents not organized as civil religions. Characteristic of Pagan traditions is the absence of proselytism and the presence of a living mythology, which explains religious practice.

In the Christian perspective the term has been used historically to encompass all non–Abrahamic religions.[2][3] The term pagan is a Christian adaptation of the "gentile" of Judaism, and as such has an inherent Abrahamic bias, and pejorative connotations among monotheists,[4] comparable to heathen and infidel.

Sorry, dude. You'll have to take your quiz again later, you flunked.

Copy and paste only goes so far my friend. All words can have different meanings. In general Pagan is the belief in multi-deities and is the opposite of monotheism. The other references are valid but incomplete. You didn't flunk, you got a 90%.

No friend, go read any of my posts, I never said I was an atheist. You seem to be the first to get it even though I described my beliefs many times. Thank you! Few scientists believe in any religion...any, including Christianity, but very few are atheists either.
