Since the death threats always seem to come from your shallow end of the argument pool, I'd say you're projecting.

Calm down dear, it's only the internet.

I'm sickened by all religions. Religion has divided people. I don't think there's any difference between the pope wearing a large hat and parading around with a smoking purse and an African painting his face white and praying to a rock.

Judging from the comments of the individual you referred to... this person couldn't get their fingers into their ass using both hands(lubricated)!

From the very beginning organized religion has thrown itself violently against every effort to liberate the body and mind of man.

It has been, at all times and everywhere, the habitual and incorrigible defender of bad governments, bad laws, bad social theories, bad institutions.

Is religion necessary in the 21st-century? For each little tidbit of "good news" the majority of news about religion is negative.

At what point in time will they reach enough consciousness to understand this is all there is... there isn't anything else other than wishful thinking and dreams of imagined immortality.

In YOUR community, right now, daily, there are numerous Churches and religious organizations engaged in benevolent acts and services, and encouraging people to live wholesome lives.

Not only is your claim incredible libel, it is stupendously ignorant. Typical for a 'rational atheist' oxymoron.

Meanwhile, murder, theft, rape and abuse are the identifying behaviors of 'rational atheist' oxymorons.

You were saying?

That smirk looks good on your ass why don't you wear it?

Stupendous ignorance is buying into imaginary entities.

Your anger at nonbelievers is the common substitute for logic among those who have no evidence for what they desperately want to believe.

“The world would be astonished if it knew how great a proportion of its brightest ornaments, of those most distinguished even in popular estimation for wisdom and virtue, are complete skeptics in religion.”~John Stuart

It's getting late you belong in your church. Be a good little Christian and pray for those immoral, wrong God worshiping, muslims. If you feel particularly kind today you might include the Buddhist, Hindus and a few other thousand organize religions.

Certainly thy God hasn't forgotten these devoted people or has she?

You accuse everyone of being an atheist. Yet you have scant if any knowledge of any competing religions some larger than yours including Islam!

I find it curious that the vast percentage of prisoners incarcerated suddenly find Jesus. Apparently his/her worshipers represent the lowest rung of intelligence and decency In modern society. Prison is a fertile ground for creating new Christians.

I'll leave a interesting thought for you which I doubt you have the ability to fathom!

"Whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire." ~Jesus Christ

Welcome to hellfire !

Remember Jesus keeps a careful watch on people like you!

Organized religion is still burning witches and stoning rape victims, for Bog's sake.

(With regard to the latter, whence this primitive fascination with virginity? Fear of critical comparisons?)

Islam admits it's men have no self control... thus covering the women with portable eye slit tents to wear. It appears that women are to blame for men's lack of self-control and need to be covered up less they tempt!

Allah Akbar!

Religion is the refuge of the incompetent, the uneducated, the miserable. They find not only sanctuary in religion but also a kind of superiority, easing to their tender egos.

It's a puzzlement to me why anyone would follow a religion that told them they were such losers.

Oh, wait, that's most of 'em, innit?

Because they own women -
they are expensive property.

In the Islam extremist sects they are unworthy of even education.

1.5 billion followers, there are in fact more Muslims than Christians.

The Catholics consider Christianity their creation they claim exclusive authorship of the Bible. 1.2 million strong. The RCC is perhaps the world's largest private landowner.

Now we have to consider the other part of Christianity - non-Catholics!

Now if Jesus had only one teaching there would be only one true church.

All of them claim to be true.

If the poster relies on faith as the bases of his/her argument, then you can gain little from further discussion.

Faith, by definition, relies on a belief that does not rest on logic or evidence.

Faith depends on irrational thought and produces intransigence.

In other words, you made a stupid lie, and now you are throwing a raging troll limp wristed hissy fit to divert attention.

If you were wise, you'd go to Church, confess and repent.
