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].

the recent stories about the Orthodoz church there pushing the anti-gay laws and the same church influencing the rulings on the Pussy Riot case should have tipped you off, if you had any desire to be accurate or not look foolish...
WTH is your post above? Orthodoz, there?

An example of when idiots have no clue of what they're talking about, let alone what anynes lese is referencing, they grasp at straws of anything, to try and make believe they do.

AKA another Flakey FLUNK out failure.

if russia is atheist how can there be regions in it that embrace islamic jihadism?

perhaps you should re-read your own posts before hitting the post button.

and how can Russia be atheist at all when the church plays such an active and powerful role in its political and social national decisions?

do you really want to talk about brain cells now?

The Soviet government, certain that religion is the opium of the people, has always tried hard to help its citizens kick the habit. Last week Pravda announced that the Communist Party had undertaken a grand new program to excise God from the minds and the hearts of all Russians.

The plan, drawn up by the party's Ideological Commission, is perhaps the most thorough in Soviet history. The commission will set up a new Institute of Scientific Atheism, offer courses in the subject at Russian universities starting this fall. Atheism will be taught more intensively at....

yet the real world examples i just gave you show that the church has serious power in Russia right now.

how can Russia be atheist if the church has such open power within the russian gov't? or really if it is open;y functioning in any way, shape or form?

yes, deaths at the hands of people of religious faith. guess that religion didn't give them the moral guidance to rebel against dictators over killing to save their own hides...

but considering the horrid moral guidebooks the cults use, that is not surprising...

All you-- have I posted horrid things about you **PERSONALLY**?

No?
Hmmmm.... the hate is all you, bub.
Consider that you are calling my all your beliefs and thoughts are true, but only for yourself theory. As I clearly post here. You are calling that hate. What does that say about your beliefs and thoughts, and now go back to the question of why do you spread them.

<quoted text>Some time ago, I saw a post by bob stating he was a lawn-care specialist. With 77,000+ posts indicating he is (as I pointed out earlier) a mediocre lawn care specialist, else he would be busier. As to the bully part, I doubt it. Guys like him only huff and puff in the virtual world, being rather timid and weenie in the real world. That's what makes his posts so amusing- he sits up north and thinks (he believes) deep thoughts about religon, all the while failing to realize it's a big world ut there and very few are like the maiden aunt who drug him off to Sunday School every Sabbath, she must have sensed the devil in him that he parades around with every hateful post.
Someone here told me he is not a 400+ pound guy that just post online everyday. However that is what I think the average Atheist blogger like he is, is. I tell him he is his beliefs. He has no soul, no afterlife. Dead from existence after death. He calls me a hater. But isn't that what he tells everyone else. It is actually part of my religious beliefs that people without souls with and do exist. But by Bob's own standards, Bob is a hater.

You remain a coward because you cannot prove your god. Spreading the flithly liar cult of creationism makes no sense to anybody.
Creationism will be criminalised in the future. Society needs humans with their brains fully working.
You are a coward by your very own standards because you can't prove your theory either. I didn't want to bring it up, but Christians punk atheist in public all the time saying "You'll burn in hell." followed by no response from Atheist. It is by your very own standards you and your ilk are cowards.

Enjoy the power you have now. For you are the seed of the serpent. And the sad part is you don't recognize it. If you are libertarian, then throw the yoke of progressive politics away. Do it now.
yet again, it was not the dictators that did all that killing. mostly it was people of religious faith doing the killing for them....

So.

Why do you continue to display HATE to me every chance you get?

Hmmmm?

Your continued use of insults, name-calling, patronizing tone, slurs, personal slurs?

Those behaviors sum up your hate of me.

And since you **claim** to be a follower of this Jesus Cult?

It's pretty safe to presume it's just another cult of HATE.

All based on YOU, naturally.

What I call hate? Is every time you lambaste me (and others), every time you call me names, every time you denigrate me as a PERSON?

Every time you attack ME, PERSONALLY?

I call that hate.

You cannot refute my statements at all-- you do not even try.

Nor can you refute my criticism of YOUR statements-- you do not even try.

You, instead, stoop to posts of hate.

See?

You post NOTHING that refutes my cricism of your claims. Nothing.

The entire SUM of your statements is of hate and personal attack.

Classic comedy. Jesus is a great symbol of love. You take that as an attack. You have no clue how funny you are.
