Atheist Islamophobia... Again

There are 20 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)

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

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 wife has lived in the UK for 20 years. She can't believe the abuse cases in Ireland and Scotland. She says French catholicism was/is very liberal.

Until recently, the French were the only ones to be "realistic" until recent years. However, middle class Italians have been "practical" about such issues for years.

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--

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.
I diday that, bob. I said I didn't pay much attention to it. Why do you keep making things up?

More accurately, bob, it's according to the men who wrote those books and the sects who selected them. The Bible as a whole was inspired by God but that doesn't mean it was all written by Him. Isn't there another tv show for you to watch and understand something besides hate?

Not paying attention is the same as dismissal as myth.

Are you seriously this stupid, or did you take special lessons?

So you freely admit the bible was written by men.

I can show that NO GOD is behind it.

You want to see the proof? It'll shake your faith...

<quoted text>"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.
you ignore half your bible?
why?

given that this is the place where your god's true colours are shown in all their horrific glory, I find it pretty amusing.

so - you have no idea how evil your god is? why not? why not read it?

You've negligently conflated the noun and adjective forms of the word. Learn your grammar:

To be a slave, you have to have a master
If someone is your master, you are their slave.

I understand you need to be wilfully ignorant, so the following is more to show others what an ass you are, rather than being an attempt to educate you.

mas·ter
/&#712;mast&#601;r/
Noun
A man who has people working for him, esp. servants or slaves.
Adjective
Having or showing very great skill or proficiency

slave
/sl&#257;v/
Noun
A person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them.
Verb
Work excessively hard: "slaving away for all those years".

okay? you done being a semiliterate asstard?

The oxymoronic title of this thread appears too be concocted by a muslim. Atheism negates all faith religions. Is it not evident to the one who complains about stupidly concocted word called "Islamophobia"?

We never had "marxophobia" ! I do not mean Marx Bros here!!!

Just look at the muslim majority countries and ask yourself whether or not you and your family would want to live under those conditions.

Islam would take the world back 1400 years; if not the stone age.

My, you have such a sweet demeanor, another bobclone in the making. I am NOT "forced" to work for or obey Him, I choose to.

Intersting- if I concentrate my faith on the New Testament, I'm one kind of Christian and if I follow the whole Bible then I'm another. Clearly the only thing acceptable by bob and the bobclones is following bob...how dreary.
