jesus culting christ you're dense.
You said it was wrong to keep children away from religion.
If so, does it have to be your religion?
I appreciate if you provide the link to where I ever said that ("wrong to keep children away from religion")?

I notice "tweaking" words has become a pattern in this thread.

I assume that people can understand sentences in its context, unless of course they never read the post.

What I said was in argument to Quantum Bob's accusation of christian's "indoctrination" of children by pointing out that it wouldn't be right for parents to live out their faith (or lack of) and expect their children not to follow their leader.

That would be your post #10720

My idea is that you mix your progeny around several religions instead of one. That way we can avoid religious ghettoisation.

Or do you have a problem with other religions?

Ok, lets bring that post in here:

Are you then sure imposition of atheistic worldview to your kids is not a form of "abusive" indoctrination?
No, denying your children from what one know positively affects oneself is a form of child abuse. Parents naturally go with what they believe is best for their childre, and no one would call you an abuser for denying your children a theistic worldview that has proven to help kids in positive ways. It would be child abuse for parents to go to their churches while leaving the kids behind. It would be child-abuse for parents to live one way while trying to hide it from the children. On simply have to live honorably and honestly, and nothing is preventing the kids from thinking for themselves when they grow up.
that was in response to your post:

Religious indoctrination is child abuse.
Don't inflict religion on a child before they're legally allowed to drink.
You post (which I responded to) did not indicate which religion, so I did not assume the context of christianity only, although I used the example of "parents to go to their churches while leaving the kids behind", the argument would be just as valid for parents going to the mosques - irrespective of whether I agree with the religion or not.

Ok, I want to make my position clear once and for all (it appears that a few atheists in this thread are too keen to jump to some "selected" conclusion about me).

"Do I have problem with other religions?"

Yes, the same way that atheists have problem with any religions (I thought you knew that?)

It is interesting that you would only ask me this while your friends Quantum and Skeptic constantly express their hatred towards believers (and... what about yourself?) Did you have a problem with Quantum Bob in his response to my questioning him on why he responded in such a response to my initial post, this was his response:

"Because I've been on Topix since 2005 ... I've learned how to spot a godbot a mile away"

www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam/T6RM5RH6A7...

But then you and madem Skeptic gave him full support while trying everything from tweaking my words or creating strawmen to paint me a "hate-cult"?

While I have my position against other belief systems, I do not attack the person based on their belief although I may voice disagreement to their belief, unless the person first make personal attacks or caught lying - even then I do not use words that your friends used.

I don't have to defend myself, my posts speak about me, some of them are worse than others, but nothing come close to what your friends have displayed.

I do not disrespect believers of other religions. I was on record giving support to muslims who are against violence (Zuhdi Jasser, Irshaq Manji, etc), I voiced my respect for Buddhism, I even once argued for the case of Atheist's reasoning against one muslims accusation of it. I have atheists and muslim friends in this forum, although we don't necessarily agree.

All you need to do is prove your god instead of continue to lie about it in this forum. For some reason you find this insulting.

You prove my earlier point: you cannot muster up an actual ARGUMENT.

So you resort to childish insults, as in the above.

Sad.

Ok, the story goes like this:

...

Rusty: fyi, this thread can also be entered from other forums...

Quantum: Christians are cowards... hate-cult....

Rusty: What have I done, why respond in this manner?

Quantum: Because I can spot a godbot from a mile away

Rusty:(crying) But I'm innocent... see here's how...

You: All you need to do is prove god exist.

Not sure who's the "7th grader"... but it was amusing to me that someone would grab any opportunity (even my attempt to inform him of alternate thread-entry point) to label me hate-cult as if he's the peaceful one.
One must think twice before greeting certain "peaceful" atheists, my mistake.
I was dead-on correct: your hateful and personal attacks to me have proved beyond a doubt, you **are** a hateful cultist.

You continue to prove my assessment with each of your hateful replies... the above is yet another example.

And you continue to show that my original assessment of you was spot-on correct--

-- any chance you get, you stoop to insult, ridicule and belittling commentary.

Instead of actual arguments.

Even your wall-of-words post above? Has insult, et-al in it.

Thanks!

My initial knee-jerk assessment of you-- that you are as intolerant and hateful as any other Genuine Christhole™-- was the correct conclusion.

Describing the situation does not advance it.

You havent proven the god you're here to lie about or made any arguments backed by any evidence.

Go and play in a different topix forum where you will be surrounded by sufficiently ignorant and susceptive people.

How does it feel?

Exactly.

Now correct your bible and remove the part about atheists being fools.

Do this before you start telling us your bullsh*t fairy story.
