Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Here is another example of how deeply the religious termites have burrowed, and how poisonous religion can be.
Kentucky.....figures, a high school cross country runner with a chance to win her first state championship withdrew from the race because....are you ready for this shit?.........because she drew the number 666. She was quoted as saying she didn't want to risk her relationship with God by wearing a number associated with the devil.
So God is that childish that he would reject this devoutly religious young girl just because of a number? Really?
"Religion poisons everything." Christopher Hitchens.
But just to jar your memory about numbers.

NASA’s Apollo 13 mission launched on April 11,1970 at 13:13 military time.

NASA sort of stuck their thumb into the eye of bad luck myths.

The mission failed but NASA was able to return the crew back safely.

I don’t believe in bad luck myths but the story of Apollo 13 makes one ponder.

I do hate the number 666.

Atheism is poison to freedom of thought and expression.

Not my conclusion, the vaticans conclusion and the conclusion of anyone who has studied the facts.
Emotional tantrums have nothing to do with the fact that Hitler was christian
As I said in my previous post to you, you can say what the hell you like.
Could you cite the Vatican's conclusion, as you hereby attest to, that Hitler was a Christian?

A link to an official Vatican document, or a public statement by a Vatican official would suffice.

I hope you didn't make it up.

Meanwhile, I have some official Vatican statements for you:

1930- L'Osservatore Romano, which speaks the mind of the Holy Father and Church, runs a series of articles from the office of Cardinal Secretary of State severely criticizing Nazism. The October 11, 1930 article declares: "Belonging to the National Socialist Party of Hitler is irreconcilable with the Catholic Conscience."

1934- "The harassment, arrest, and imprisonment of priests and active Catholics increases. The Nazis close some 200 Catholic publications in Germany, take over Church schools, and coerce the young into joining "Hitler Youth."

1935- Lourdes, France, at a Eucharistic Triduum Cardinal Pacelli tells an estimated 325,000 pilgrims, including many Germans, that "the Church will never come to terms with Nazis as long as they persist in their racial philosophy." He scorns Nazis theories of "race and blood" as superstitious and "contrary to the Christian faith." With such a philosophy, he declares, "the Church does not consent to form a pact at any price."

1937- Cardinal Pacelli drafts the encyclical Mit brennender Sorge, issued in March by Pope Pius XI. It condemns Nazi racism and worship of the state in the Church's most authoritative form of teaching. It infuriates the Nazis, who respond with more persecution of Catholics.

1938- In a formal state visit to Italy, Hitler comes to Rome. Pius XI expresses sorrow and outrage at Mussolini's invitation. "To honor a cross [the swastika] which is not Christ's in the Eternal City" the Pope says, is an unhappy sign of Mussolini's "old anticlericalism." He refuses to meet Hitler.

1938-Pius XII orders publication of a large volume (565 pages). The Persecution of the Catholic Church in the Third Reich, in London (by Burns and Oates). It is a translation from the German of eye-witness accounts of the merciless Nazi program to crush the Church

1941 (March)- Vatican radio begins special broadcasts to France and Spain, speaking of "the wickedness of Hitler"

And yet, Pius II should be considered an aider and abettor.

Then Hitler's persecution, murder, imprisonment, and closing the schools of Christians speak louder than speeches where he donned the mantle of Christianity...

Right?

I’m so thankful there’re atheist who are not angry all the time. Some of these people have their boiler stuck on high fire. They’re on the edge of exploding at any given moment. Why live like that? I mean have some fun and enjoy life for goodness sakes.

I can’t even joke around with some of these folks. They have steam blowing out their nose, ears, and @sshole all the time. Peace unto my friend, always peace.

Yeah, me too.

I try to pass the time, since I'm on house arrest and 2 protective orders, by making pleasant, peaceful conversation.

And these assplugs jump ugly on me.
