Why Do Atheists Ridicule Christianity?

Easy answer to this one

It's blatantly hilarious after all where else can you find unicorns Angels Devils talking reptiles talking livestock miracles and magic all wrapped up into one good book that's more confused than longtailed cat in a room for rocking chairs

God really loves beetles considering the number varieties of them he created

God also has an inordinate fondness for foreskins go figure

Is this sort of pabulum food for comedy
You're darn tootin!

Antisocial Personality Disorder (Psychopaths and sociopaths):

JESUS

He wanted to create a new world order.

Disparity between behaviour and the prevailing social norms.

Relative unconcern for the feelings of most Pharisees and priests or scribes of Israel.

Persistent disregard for social norms, rules and obligations, but speaking with two mouths in so doing.

Having difficulty in establishing social relations.- For what it is worth, take into account such as: the authorities had Jesus killed, his relatives wanted to drive him out of a cliff, and almost all of his disciples ("the seventy") left him because of his hard words, and the remaining twelve disciples just let him be arrested.

Low tolerance to frustration, as witnessed by his cursing a fig tree.

A low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence, in the same episode.
Incapacity to profit from his punishment, insisting to be God throughout.

Marked proneness to blame others for what brought him into conflict with society.

Quite irritable as an associated feature.

BUT BUT BUT HE LOVES YOU!

Romney lost for the simple reason he got caught with that 47% remark

There were however contributing factors that led to his Inglorious defeat.

2012 CONSERATIVE/REPUBLICAN PLATFORM

1. The inerrant bible trumps the constitution
2. Evolution and Global warming are a hoax
3. College students and those seeking education are snobs
4. Gay Americans are an abomination
5. Poor people deserve to be poor
6. Union workers are socialists
7. The unemployed are lazy parasites unwilling to work
8. 50% of Latinos are illegal until proven otherwise
9. Women using birth control are sluts
10. Corporations are people

- President Obama -
An Army chaplain who saved the lives of fellow US soldiers before perishing in a North Korean prison camp has been awarded a posthumous US Medal of Honor.
On Thursday, President Obama presented the highest US military decoration to the nephew of Emil Kapaun, a Catholic priest who died in the Korean War.
Kapaun, an Army captain, was renowned for his bravery and caring.
The Kansas-born priest has also been named Servant of God by the Vatican, a step toward sainthood.
"This is the valour we honour today," President Barack Obama said at a White House ceremony attended by elderly former prisoners of war and several members of Kapaun's family, "an American soldier who didn't fire a gun, but who wielded the mightiest weapon of all, a love for his brothers so pure that he was willing to die so that they might live."
Kapaun's actions, Mr Obama said, "remind us of the good we can do each and every day, regardless of the most difficult of circumstances".

Losers always quote those motivational mantras to themselves.

It avoids them having to face the facts that they were undereducated at cult universities, remain unmarried and still have the childhood belief that jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs.

But you chose this way of life troll, how sad.

You might begin with a class in history of the Second World War and then move on to modern history?
The issue of God's existence troubled the ancient philosophers with no resolution.
Atheism offers no scientific proof.
Many religious persons ignore atheism while raising their children, conducting their lives and voting.
President Obama is a practicing Christian as is VP Biden.

Not at all, but I bet it bothers the heck out of you when theists are more successful than you. Keep trying.

Wow you must be having a good day this is the first post you've made I agree with

Yes this is one Catholic priests that lived up to the tenets of his faith...

There are many more worldwide that continue to assault children

The Vatican offers no solution other than covering up

It's a sick religion populated by Severely delusional old men indoctrinated their entire life

Mother Teresa should've taken lessons from father Kapaun

You offer up no commentary. Why did you post this in this thread?

I hope it wasn't to use Emil Kapaun's actions and recognition to further your own ends. You wouldn't be that sleazy, would you?

"Atheist" posters who who use "Christholes" and the "F-bomb" often seem the most frequent posters.
In the real world, talking to real people, note when you scratch an "atheist"
out pops an "agnostic."

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.
William Shakespeare, "Measure for Measure", Act 1 scene 4
