There are 3765 comments on the Religion Dispatched story from Apr 9, 2013, titled Atheist Islamophobia... Again. In it, Religion Dispatched reports that:

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

teaching kids to reject sense and reason is child abuse.
telling them that they must whoreship a baby-hacking god or they'll be tormented for eternity is child abuse.
Failing to equip children with the necessary intelligence to parse fact and fiction is child abuse.
Scaring a child into believeing fairy tales is child abuse.
Telling a children things you know to be lies is child abuse.
Religion, in particular christianity, does all of those.
any more questions?
Yeah, when did I do any of this? If you're going to assume I do these things, then you're only half-right (the first half of "assume"). I don't preach to children and I don't tell 'em scary stories to give them nightmares. I don'teven endorse the "Now I lay me down to sleep..." prayer. i'll answer their questions...carefully and if they try to back me into a corner, I turn it over to their parents.

As soon as you pick up your book and hand it to kids - you've done every single one of those things. In their eyes, you've just given them a book of facts.

So yes, you do. it's child abuse.

God endorses slavery. He even set up laws as to how slavery was to be carried out, and goes as far as Okaying beating them. Exodus 21:2-6

God sanctioned the selling of ones daughter. How can any being tell another to literally sell their child into slavery? Disgusting! Exodus 21:7

Exodus 22:18 God orders the death of witches, sorceresses and anyone who practices magic. Sadly enough, this verse was justification for the Inquisition.

Exodus 32:27 God ordered to be killed, 3,000 Israelites for no greater crime than worshipping a golden calf. I don’t know about you but death is a pretty harsh fucking punishment.

Leviticus 20:9-10 God commands death for cursing out ones parents and death for adultery. Gee, with these types of laws the population should be almost nil by now.

Once again god is a homophobe, or at the very least, a bigot. Leviticus 20:13

Handicapped people must not approach the altar. Leviticus 21:16-23

False. I have the world's worth of FACTS to back it up.
1) teaching an innocent child he is born "with sin" (or in other words-- he's lower than dirt, just because he's born) IS ABUSE
2) trying to scare the crap out of little kids, by threats of hell and worse, is ABUSE
3) promising little kids, the beloved relative "X is in heaven" when you know full well that is a lie, is ABUSE. How do I know you know it's not true? YOU WAIL, YOU CRY, YOU GET DEPRESSED WHEN THEY DIE. Just like everyone else. If you REALLY BELIEVED they were in "a better place"? YOU WOULD BE HAPPY FOR THEM.
Shall I go on, you abusive hate-cultist?
God created us, allows us to inherit this "original sin," then he insist that we need to beg before him for forgiveness. It sound like God is a mad doctor to me.I remember watching this case of a nurse who would purposely poison people so that her boyfriend(who worked on the security detail) could watch her at work helping the people she was poisoning.

"God" didn't do these things, Man did. As I said ealier, I don't pay much attention to the Old Testament. Depending on which sect you attend, there are Books included and excluded in the OT that just adds to the secularism of Christianity. I attended a church one Easter Sunday that amazed me- the preacher mentioned Christ only once- he is one who dwells almost exclusively in the OT, needless to say I did not go back. I believe in the Spirit of Christianity as much as the Word. That's something poor bob and you bobclones cannot get through your head. If the Bible were a path, you would insist on trodding on e-v-e-r-y letter as if they were individual paving stones instead of simply following the path- narrow that it is.

Nope.

Look up "master" and then look up "slave".

These two require each other to exist.

You are just a slave to your hate-cult--

-- you ADMITTED so yourself.

Yes. There was one of those TV drama-shows a couple of days back, where an EMT/ambulance driver would deliberately injure people, so he could swoop in and "save" their lives, becoming a "hero".*

The bible's ugly god is **exactly** like that.

__________

* the TV show was about a few he couldn't save-- and some very smart people figured out it was homicide, not accident, which was the episode I saw. When they finally caught the guy? His comment? Collateral damage-- insignificant to the "greater good"... WTF?

No-- you already admitted you thought parts of the ugly bible were just myth.

This means you have ZERO reason to base your faith on-- yet you cling to your baseless faith ANYHOW.

... making you just another hypocrite.

Read it again-- the LAWS were DIRECTLY FROM GOD-- according to the ugly bible.

And even in the new testament? Jesus commands slaves to "obey your masters-- god made you a slave for a reason".

WTF?

Even your JESUS was pro-slavery!

My French wife went to a catholic school and even the priests told her the bible was only allegorical, not literal.

Absolutely. The NT is not slave friendly.
As evidenced by Ephesians 6:5, 1 Timothy 6:1-2, Luke 12:47-48.
