What agenda?

You've been talking about some elusive Christian homophobic message and haven't explained yourself, now you're calling it an agenda.

What agenda?

What thefuck are you talking about?!?

More good reading - KILLING FOR ATHEISM:

"The League of Militant Atheists was an atheistic and antireligious organization of workers and intelligentsia that developed in Soviet Russia under the influence of the ideological and cultural views and policies of the Soviet Communist Party from 1925 to 1947"

"In 1930 the Second Plenum of the LMG Central Council adopted an antireligious five-year plan with the intention of annihilating religion in the USSR.
The League purged its rightist members in 1932–1934. In addition, the League of Militant Atheists sometimes took a violent approach to those who would not accept the League's message. For example, "bishops, priests, and lay believers" were "arrested, shot, and sent to labour camps"

"The League of Militant Atheists aided the Soviet government in killing clergy and committed believers"

"It is our duty to destroy every religious world-concept... If the destruction of ten million human beings, as happened in the last war, should be necessary for the triumph of one definite class, then that must be done and it will be done"

This tenet of Stalin's KILLING FOR ATHEISM bears repeating for emphasis:

"If the destruction of ten million human beings, as happened in the last war, should be necessary for the triumph of one definite class, then that must be done and it will be done"

<quoted text>I already knew that, and it contradicts nothing I have said.

Stalin was an atheist who killed for atheism.

Hitler was baptized a Catholic, but killed Christians and Jews out of anti-christian and anti-Jewish hate.

Atheism is the belief that did the killing work. Idiot.

Here is some reading for you, from Wiki:

"Raised in the Georgian Orthodox faith, Stalin became an atheist. He followed the position that religion was an opiate that needed to be removed in order to construct the ideal communist society. His government promoted atheism through special atheistic education in schools, anti-religious propaganda, the antireligious work of public institutions (Society of the Godless), discriminatory laws, and a terror campaign against religious believers. By the late 1930s it had become dangerous to be publicly associated with religion"

Reading is fun, huh?

Some casual reading for atheists:

KILLING FOR ATHEISM

"The state was committed to the destruction of religion, and destroyed churches, mosques and temples, ridiculed, harassed and executed religious leaders, flooded the schools and media with atheistic teachings, and generally promoted atheism as the truth that society should accept. The total number of Christian victims of Soviet state atheist policies, has been estimated to range between 12-20 millions"

More good atheist reading:

"It was legally possible to deprive parents of their children if they failed to raise them as atheists, but these legal restrictions were only enforced selectively when the authorities chose to do so."

"Religious youth at colleges could sometimes be sent to psychiatric hospitals on grounds that only a person with a psychological disorder would still be religious after going through the whole anti-religious education"

Let me ask you this: Who has bullied who into the closet? Why do you suppose that it that it is gays in the closet and not Christians?
In my honest opinion, because homosexuality isn't 'normal' and some people that are gay find it embarrassing.

Do me this, answer that same question. I want to hear your take.

I thought atheism was not a belief, but only a rejection of evidence for god?

Yet here, you state definitively that god is imaginary.

Which is it?

Your conclusion proves a belief - that belief being god is non-existent.

No such definitive knowledge exists, so your conclusion is an extension beyond knowledge.

You are, therefore, expressing a belief.

But atheism is not a belief, right?

Sure. Right.

Are you a member of "The Society of the Godless"?

Do you believe you should kill people who believe in God?

Just trying to figure out how strong your "non-belief" is.

Stalin's mass murders reflected a really strong non-belief. Really strong.

I bet the survivors are really glad Stalin didn't have a "belief", huh?

I came to say...

Despite that we might not care for each other...we don't agree...

I wish you the best during this time of year...wish you a Merry Christmas.

This year my search is for peace...a little of that goodwill toward men...I struggle to find that when words are spoken with such little lack of concern for others...that seems to be the norm for the most part of these threads...hard to find peace.

I have decided...if words hurt...I can't expect someone else to understand that...so if I want peace in my life...then I need to put myself in a place where I do not have to hear them.

There is much that I would like to say to but my words would only fall on deaf ears...if I want peace then sometimes I just need to leave words unsaid.

Again...

I truly from my heart hope that you and your wife have a very Merry Christmas and that your days are filled with what this season should be about..."love".

Strange how you can only sight less than a half dozen atheist leaders committing atrocities while any knowledgeable person can cite hundreds to thousands of religious person doing so.

The Bible is chock full of theists murdering people for their deity. 3000 years of Abrahamic religions committing genocide and other atrocities in the name of their deities and it continues around the world to this day.

Theists have murdered and continue to murder more people than atheists. Say otherwise you are a liar or moron.

Is that all you hear? If that's all you got out of this discussion, it probably leaves you where you started.
Aren't you getting anything at all out of your time here?
Actually, I'm getting plenty out of this.

I'm learning tolerance that I didn't have before, primarily directed at gays. The conversations I've had with several people here have opened my eyes and made me realize that I've been wrong and intolerant all these years. I'm doing what I can to change that. I've learned to tap into my "inner Jesus".

I've also learned that some atheists are good people that really care about freedom and justice and choice while others are militant ass holes that want nothing more than to slander Christianity and do what they can to help diminish the church and make Christians look like the worst people on the planet.

I've also learned what fallacies are and how they operate in discussion and argument.

I've also learned about control issues and how they are nothing but a detriment to relationships.

You? Are you getting anything out of this? Be honest.
