Say what?
Actually Galileo , Queen Elizabeth (I assume 1st but 2nd too) and Churchill were/are christian. Don’t know about the rest and not really bothered.
However that makes not the slightest difference to the FACTS
Just because they upset your sensibilities does not give you the right to dictate who is and who is not Christian, or perhaps you have been made pope and no one bathered telling the church?
seriously .."ChristineM" ..seriously ..?!

I'm verboten from dictating who is who isn't a Christian , but you can ..??...Who died , and left you Queen ..?

The sickest religion is all a tough one and the accolade goes jointly to all 3 of the abrahamic religions but on a personal note Muslims have never hurt me or mine, Jews have never hurt me or mine, christians have.
Why must you equivocated , to hide your prejudices ...you horrid woman ..

The IRA , is more about the abuses of a majority inflicting on the minority .

the IRA , never bombed Scandinavia , Germany or any Protestant nation you wish to name ..

The English persecuted the Irish ...and , you know it ...You and yours created the monster , and now you blame it for biting you ...

Stalin was born into a christian family, educated in christian way, was training to become a priest before the revolution
He never renounced his christianity and never said he was atheist, as a religious student he made two comments that cast doubt (in the eyes of certain people with there own agenda) on his faith, but hey, he was s student and what student does not question the status quo?
Following the consolidation of his power he began rebuilding the christian church, appointing priests and reopened the christian seminary among other religious works, is this the work of an atheist?
In his library were several christian books and he was known to discuss religion, god and christ in a favourable light with his daughter and some officials.
He was a secular minded religious opportunist. He didn’t use atheism to gain control, but his sick minded religious principles to overthrow the corruption of the christian church.
All this is documented by contemporary sources (not 1960/70s American authors, also with there own agenda) and available on the Internet
you're entitled to your opinions , but not your facts ..

Under the communist religion was forbidden ...and persecuted .

Stalin did enter a seminary ..but , quit ...I suspect he realized they were going to rejected him , and so to save face he dropped out .

Everybody born before the 1960's was born into a religious household ...everybody..

<quoted text>..( sigh )..I loathe to answer a question with a question ..but , regarding the history of the Crusades and the Inquisitions , where does the bias of these historians lie ' pro-Christian' or 'anti-Christian'?
The sad reality is there are always ( 3 ) sides to every dispute ..My side , Your side , and then there's the truth .
What I know of the Inquisitions , is that they were never sanctioned by Rome , the royalty of the said nations used their influence in the Church to rob their enemies of their land , be assured the landless peasants were never subject to these trials ..
Mayhaps , the Church should have bared down more forcefully , on this abuse of power ; but hindsight is 'always' 20/20 .
Historians uncovered ' this ' hidden truth ..don't be absurd , it was never hidden ..From whence all the documentation and plethora of photographs ...?
Although , I doubt anybody here actually knew that that Nazi bastard Churchill attacked an unsuspecting French Navy .....although , the fact that France succumbed in 6 weeks . Proves that that limey fatso was balls on ..

None of the scriptures you quote mention an eternal life in hell.

So yes, Christians who teach of an eternal punishment in some burning hell are all mistaken.
The reference to the Lake of Fire is about throwing the unrepentant wicked to be burned up at the resurrection, not to keep on burning forever.
Only the Muslim Koran speaks of an eternal hell in fire after death.
There is no such teaching in the Bible.
.."Depart from me ,you cursed ,into the eternal fire !" ..Jesus ..32 A.D.

Hell is eternal ...or ...You claim Jesus is a liar .

The god book, written to big him up in your eyes says that he was accused of blasphemy and sedition against the Romans, contemporary historians and personalities tell it differently.
See the books of
Sara Reinke - Pantera
Robert Eisenman – James, the brother of Christ,
Hyam Maccobys – The Mythmaker,
Danial Underbank – Judas the Galilean: the flesh and blood Jesus
Paul Cresswell – Jesus the Terrorist
Read up on the “Talmud”,“Sanhedrin”,“Fourth Philosophy”,“Sicarri” and ”Emperor Titus”
Also try “Emperor Theodosius” who attempted and mostly succeeded in destroying the facts. Despite his book burning rampage there is still more than one clam that the guy you know is the son of god was the illegitimate spawn of a roman soldier who joined the FP and then became leader of the Sicarri.
Try also the works of Josephus for background info info the period.
There is info is there online if only you could be bothered to take you god blinkers off and actually bother educating yourself
Look if Christianity was fake ..at least one of the Apostles would have recanted ...and, show the authorities were Jesus's body was hidden ..none ever did .

..( also , I admire you honesty ..but, do you have a photo of yourself where you are just a wee bit younger ...the one in your image profile makes you look kinda old .)...

In fact they all mention the exact opposite...death.
"The wages of sin is death."
Not eternal life in some hell.
.
It was a mistake. The original author meant "The wages of life is death."

One country? Just one, fair enough, and I believe you know it will, the USA, you will notice that pro-rata more atheist have been executed than christians and for essentially the exact same crime.
Also can you explain why the USA incarcerates more of it population than any other country in the world and why the USA is the only country in the world to have used nuclear weapons in anger? Why is the mortality rate at birth higher in the US than any other industrialised nation? Why is inequality in the US worse than any other industrialised nation?
a).We only execute murders ..and, how do you know most are atheist ..you don't .
b) We have allowed the penal system to become a lucrative business , and our streets are awash in guns .

c) yes , we destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki ...but...It was 'you' Brits who used starvation as a weapon ..

d) mortality rate and inequality ..I think we spend too much money defending Western Europe ( but , that being said I would rather have our nations problems than yours .)
