Your as smart as a sack of hammers. The catholic church wrote the bible a thousand years before othe xtian cults, including yours, were ever founded. Just read history. Plus you are a bald faced liar to say that a catholic claimed not to be xtian. Nothing you say from now on will be believed. BYE!

Lets see Islam is oppressive, intolerant, violent, misogynistic, homophobic and hates those that are different.

Christianity on the other hand is oppressive, intolerant, violent, misogynistic, homophobic and hates those that are different.

Hmmm so why would atheist feel any differnt about either?

Catholics do not follow the bible and Christ but their traditions of man. Some individual catholics may be saved but catholicism is infused with all sorts of paganism and does not represent TRUE BIBLICAL Christianity.
Come, come now.

That's hardly an unbiased and impartial source, is it?

Mormons claim the title of Christianity.
So do Jehovah's Witnesses.
Even those cults are not regarded Christian by even atheist standards.
Catholicism is not much different.
The Roman Catholic church requires works for salvation, worships Mary, added to the bible, etc.

They have VERY unbiblical doctrine.

So how do you view Islam, atheists? I want your honest feelings.
Mental slavery to superstition, same as christianity. Both are patriarchal and seem based on a fear of female sexuality. Both are control freak doctrines that cannot tolerate independent thought. Both preach love and propagate their doctrines with violence. Humanity would be better off without either.

Well PRD?

As the originator of this thread, I'd say that your presumption isn't standing up that well.

Wouldn't you agree?

Which presumption? The one that all atheists are closet muslims, or the one about there being an invisible sky fairy. Neither seems to be faring particularly well.

The only TRUTH to religion is that it is FALSE.

Scriptures: the sacred books of our holy religion, as distinguished from the false and profane writings on which all other faiths are based.~Ambrose Bierce

“We live in a world where religious governments execute adulterers and homosexuals, deny women and minority groups basic freedoms, circulate fraudulent claims about contraception and scientific research and create laws that protect them from criticism.”~ Chlo๋ Clifford-Frith, AHS spokesperson (The National Federation of Atheist, Humanist and Secular Student Societies)

“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”~ Stephen Roberts

“We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.”~ H. L. Mencken

“The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also.”~ Mark Twain

Nice batch of quotes!

"It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand." ~Mark Twain

"No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says; he is always convinced that it says what he means." ~George Bernard Shaw

"Thus I came...to a deep religiosity, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached a conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true.... Suspicion against every kind of authority grew out of this experience...an attitude which has never left me." ~Albert Einstein

"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence." ~Bertrand Russell

"I don't think we're here for anything, we're just products of evolution. You can say 'Gee, your life must be pretty bleak if you don't think there's a purpose' but I'm anticipating a good lunch." ~James Watson (Discoverer of DNA)

"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration--courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and, above all, love of the truth." ~H.L. Mencken

I fart in the general direction of all desert religions, then I strike a match to symbolize their eradication from the human collective unconscious.

I don't believe in either, obviously, but I'd certainly rather live in a society that is predominantly Christian that Islamic. For example, one of today's posts had me thinking that I knew less about how apostasy is viewed by various people than I'd like to. Philosophers work to define it and Christians abhor it, but in the modern age, only for Islamic governments does it carry a sentence of death:

Countries

See also: Use of capital punishment by nation
This section requires expansion.

In many countries apostasy from the religion supported by the state is explicitly forbidden. This is largely the case in some states where Islam is the state religion; conversion to Islam is encouraged, conversion from Islam penalised.

Iran – illegal (death penalty)[7][8][9]
Egypt – illegal (death penalty)[9]
Pakistan – illegal (death penalty[9] since 2007)
United Arab Emirates – illegal (death penalty)[10]
Somalia – illegal (death penalty)[11]
Afghanistan – illegal (death penalty, although the U.S. and other coalition members have put pressure that has prevented recent executions[12][13])
Saudi Arabia – illegal (death penalty, although there have been no recently reported executions)[9][14]
Sudan – illegal (death penalty, although there have only been recent reports of torture, and not of execution[15])
Qatar – illegal (death penalty)[16]
Yemen – illegal (death penalty)[16]
Malaysia – illegal in five of 13 states (fine, imprisonment, and flogging)[17][18]
Mauritania – illegal (death penalty)[citation needed]
Nigeria – illegal in twelve of 37 states (death penalty)[citation needed]
Syria – possibly illegal (death penalty) although there is evidence to the contrary[19]
Morocco – illegal to proselytise conversion (15 years jail, flogging)[20]
Jordan – possibly illegal (fine, jail, child custody loss, marriage annulment) although officials claim otherwise, convictions are recorded for apostasy.[21][22][23]

Chick tracts? You have *got* to be kidding me! LMAO!

Chick tracts are some of the least truthful, most distorted, uneducated, lying wastes of trees that I have ever seen.

Christianity was *defined* by the Catholics when they adopted the Nicene creed. If you believe in a supernatural Jesus, it is because of the debates that the Catholics *won*.

As for Islam, the modern version is at least as bad as the Medieval version of Christianity. The main difference is that they have aspects of modern technology to enforce their superstition and ignorance. Modern Christianity has at least moved away from the dogmatic phase and has started to accept that it isn't the only judge of truth in the universe. Islam has yet to realize that.
