Yawn. More roboblogger bullshit, and no way to flag the bullshit for removal. That means it's time to post more stories about christard criminals in the chrsitard group, stories which roboblogger fails to post there.

The "article" on examiner is the usual extremist and dishonest christard propaganda, conflating all atheists with communists, and claiming that all mass murders are driven by communism and atheism, none by religitards.

Communism is an extremist ideology.
Fascism is an extremist ideology.
Nazism is an extremist ideology.
Religion is an extremist ideology.

Atheism is an ABSENCE of ideology.

Those with extremist ideologies are the same people. They are the ones guilty of all mass murders throughout history. Religious and political ideologies are all after the same things: money, power, and sex - and they usually prefer it with unwilling people.

No one ever killed anyone in the name of nothing. No one ever killed anyone in the name of acceptance and education.

Well, yes, religion can be an extremist ideology. It isn't always, and it is rarely so as practiced by the larger majority of most populations. I don't think most churchgoers are even all that religious--church is more about fellowship that worship. Go to a service and listen to the chatter afterwards. Almost none will be about God or religion. It will be about golf and fishing with the men, shopping and children with the women, and where to eat with all of them. Next stop, home, for a few, a restaurant for more, the golf coarse or the lake for many of the men.

I used to get rid of some of this stuff when I was a Topix editor for this forum. Now that the editors are no more, it all slips through. Maybe it's better that way.

Hey, who's up for some barbecue?
