Ignorant is you continuing to claim the Pope proclaimed something that he, in fact, did not.
You said you preferred to do your own research.
Yet, you haven't.
You're still ignorant.
And obviously proud of it.
I've read the statements he made. On several different sites. I haven't repeated them on here verbatim. If you also have read them, is there any need? I didn't continue to claim anything. I made one statement, then said I wasn't going to rely on your Topix BS to have you try and faux-educate me on your interpretation.

Here you go lazy boy:

Labeling the disciples as “a little intolerant,” closed off by the idea that “those who do not have the truth, cannot do good,” Francis remarked the importance of the “doing good” commandment. The principle, he said, unites all humanity, beyond religions and ideologies, creating a “culture of encounter” which is at the basis of peace.

Narrow and self centered attitudes should be banned, as everyone doing good, including atheists, can be redeemed by Jesus, Francis said.

“Just do good and we’ll find a meeting point,” the pope said.

And here's the jist of it: I don't care what the pope believes or doesn't believe of atheists. What I care about is how many believers such as yourself try your best to be the antithesis of a loving Christian.

Am I proud of being an atheist. Why wouldn't I be? It's not any different than anyone being proud of anything that is a significant part of who they are (of course I know you're trying to say I'm proud of being ignorant, but I'm just ignoring your own ignorance).

I never once equated atheism with ignorance.
So interesting that you do....

Very interesting that you do.

No, you equated ignorance with my apparently not knowing what the pope said. Atheism is the absolute opposite of ignorance.

Wrong.

Your ignorance was demonstrated by your continuing to incorrectly repeat what you believed the Pope to have said...AFTER having been informed otherwise.

In fact, that's called willful ignorance.
A trait of leftists everywhere.

I didn't incorrectly repeat anyone. I once said the pope said atheists can go to heave. I made that comment once.

I had already read the articles regarding this conversation, just because I refused to click on your topix BS doesn't mean I remained ignorant, it means I choose my sources wisely and anything you deem as a reliable source probably isn't something I'm interested in.

Speaking of traits of leftists, looks like we're a pretty healthy bunch, further proving conservatives own the corner market on ignorance. A list of the most obese states in America was recently published. Go figure, most of the states are red states. Maybe they should spend a little more time focusing on educating themselves on healthy food choices and maybe try tearing themselves away from the TV and go for a walk once in a while.

You made your incorrect claim again...in the below post:

http://www.topix.com/forum/columbus/TRT96DAA4...

...refusing to admit that if atheists come to know Christ, it necessarily follows that they are no longer atheists.

Please don't speak of logic.

Most of the obese in those states are black.

Who don't vote red.

The CDC must be employing someone with a racial eye there.

As if you note, the whitest areas on the first link map, are the reddest areas on the second map.

I don't click on your links. I've already posted part of what the pope said. If you can't understand it, then that's your problem. My responsibility is for what I say, not for what you understand. Some atheists can come to know god. They are not atheists. Other atheists will maintain their atheism, but will live a good and decent life and apparently the pope thinks that "god" will redeem everyone, even atheists. The best part of all of this is that it doesn't matter a hoot. Atheists don't care if the pope thinks they're going to heaven or not. We don't believe in it.

No, the Pope does not "think that 'god' will redeem every, even atheists," fool. Even a cursory reading of his remarks and a basic understanding of Christianity will reveal this fact.

Your research skills suck.

Sure, sure. Whatever you say. I can tell you one thing, that meeting place the pope spoke of? It's imaginary and doesn't matter. The biggest problem you believers have is thinking that atheists care what you or your pope thinks. The only people his words matter to is, you and any other Catholics. If there were a heaven, I'd venture to say more atheists would go there than believers.

I have plenty of hope and love and excitement and motivation. I just don't need an imaginary deity to have it. You're one of the sad people who think the only way someone can derive any purpose from life is to believe in something greater being. It's a crutch. I am as full of life as can be and I love every moment I'm alive. Atheists are a whole are generally very happy people. Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

The Pope was referencing a meeting of the minds.
And, for once, you're right -- in your case, it's imaginary.

Further, as I've stated many times, I am not Catholic.
But you...you are ignorant.

The historical record says you are wrong. Our personal views of you tend towards the phrase "bitter".

Not the least since that the Duggars have 19 kids, and you have none.

If being an atheist makes me ignorant in your eyes, I embrace it wholeheartedly.

You're not exactly Buddha on the mountain top speaking truth. Just your own version of it.
