That was quite the meltdown!
And why would you post me a link about a priest covering it up when I not only said it happens, that I want anybody involved in coverups to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law (and have said many times I want them to be charged as accessories after the fact as it would mean a harsh penalty compared to say obstruction which can only be criminal if it involves hindering an actual ongoing police investigation), and said I want to see ALL abuse in the church exposed?
What was your point?
You really are retarded
I'm not retarded - and it doesn't make you any smarter for saying so.

You always have have trouble figuring out what is going on from what post to the next too. Other than RT, the women atheists (I will just go by whatever group you claim to be in at the moment) are really dragging down the curve for your side. And I know plenty of very intelligent women so that's not an indictment on females. It is just random chance I guess that some of the dumbest ones are in the same place
And 'chook'
Who are you trying to copy now? Rosa goes all 'drungo' and whatever other supposed saying are where she is probably pretending to be from and now the Topix sheep has to copy of course! Have you ever used that word before right now?

<quoted text> No matter how much Hearsay or Opinions given, Communism And Atheism Are Hand In Hand Christian and Only an Atheist would be Blind to it...
This was not the argument – however communism is a political concept of nationalism. Atheist is 'not theist', a rejection of belief in gods, the two are not synonymous.

However many christians (and other gobots) chose to deceive themselves solely on the basis that some forms of communism reject the church completely while others promote the state above the church thus diminishing their belief for the power of their myth. In this is the way of all modern political systems with the exception of Islam.

“A common complaint made by theists, typically those of the fundamentalist variety, is that atheism and/or humanism are essentially socialist or communist in nature. Thus, atheism and humanism should be rejected since socialism and communism are evil. Evidence indicates that bigotry and prejudice towards atheists in America is due in no small part to anti-communist activism by conservatives Christians in America, so this claimed connection has had serious consequences for American atheists.”
Read the rest at http://atheism.about.com/od/atheismmyths/a/Co...

You need to take this in perspective and consider that in China, a communist country comprising of over 50% believers of some religion or other less then 50% atheist or agnostic there are far more believers in a deity than the entire population of the united states.

And Russia, another communist country the difference is closer still to the US with over 80% of the population religious in some way compared to 13% atheist (and a few sitting on the fence)

Some of the Latin American countries have communist style governments and yet are predominantly catholic. Go figure.

Only a godbot would ignore the glaring facts

You're an idiot. As historians know, Stalin was making temporary use of the church. Same as Hitler did.
You have no argument. Stalin was an atheist, and everyone knows it.
You are a fool, Stalin was making temporary use of atheism to destroy the corruption of the pre revolutionary church. Once Stalin was in office he revived the Russian Orthodox Church, he was on the council convened to elect a new church Patriarch. He oversaw the re-opening of theological schools right across Russia, and thousands of churches began to function. The Theological Academy Seminary was re-opened, after being closed since 1918.

As for Hitler, good christian, documented and proven by no less then the catholic church,(I know, I know it bares no comparison to your foot stomping). However just because he does not reach your staunch ideals of how christians behave (Oh sorry, I I did not mean to hint at your violent and spiteful nature) has little to do with his faith.

The fact that you claim I have no argument while replying and quoting my argument is rather pathetic don’t you think?

S.Alliluyeva (Stalin’s Daughter):“It is interesting, that from all Kremlin' residents, maybe, just father believed in God.”

S.Alliluyeva: Father told me that Christ existed in the past.

S.Alliluyeva: In father's library, between other books, were few tomes of "Christ". I said to my father: "But Christ didn't exist!" and he answered "Oh no, Christ, surely existed."

<quoted text>What are you talking about? Are you just intentionally changing your story post to post so you can continue to lie and manufacture excuses for your actions?
I never made the excuse it doesn't happen much. What I said, and what we already discussed, is that 1.8% is lower than the national average throughout society. And other jobs have higher rates like teachers and child physiatrists because pedophiles look to infiltrate places that give them access to children. So my point for the 4th time is that due to Barrie focus of the press people are under the misconception that it is more prevalent in the church and as a result people probably are not looking in other places as well and we need to root it out and expose it everywhere
Some people really show their lack of ethics when their pride is involved
Bollocks, I have had enough of your winging because you want the church to be squeaky clean. It isn’t so live with it.

They are fooking priests you moron, so it should be lower than the national average, those bum fookers are supposed to be trusted. It should not exist at all in the church, but it does so there is something else you’ll have to live with.

Yes those people are called priests. Or have you not been following the conversation?

The different 'perspective' you claimed the British media has was a deeper concern about exposing child abuse than the United States and how people in the UK would never allow the things we have allowed in the States
Shall I pull your original post for you?
Actually I did say that the British media has was a deeper concern about exposing child abuse than the United States, which appears by the very nature and output of the British and US press machine to be true.

I also said the that US press were more interesting in protecting there national security with is also true.

Different perspective, so where am I lying?

Oh I get it, you have nothing else to offer. Fair enough

You said repeatedly that it’s only 1.8% so should not be as prominent in the press as it is.

You are sh|t scared that the bad press brought on by perverted paedophile priest is going to upset your Sunday bowing down to your bronze age myth.

<quoted text>And btw, THAT is your view? That they should not molest children if they can't deal with the penalty.
You realize that logic implies that if they can handle the penalty then they should molest kids
Brilliant 'logic'
That saying is meant to be directed at an offender as a deterrent. It's not supposed to be an attitude taking by others as far as whether it not someone should commit a crime!
So you are saying that they should molest children and then cry religion when they are caught?

And you also seem to be saying that priest who rape children are not offenders.

Not out of the blue, he knows he is a lying T\/\/AT, yes I have no tolerance for lies

As for cutting some slack, he blew that when he insulted my sexuality after I had agreed (with proviso) not to make his self admitted sexual problems public

And now you are following the same fooking pig ignorant christian line by lying for your god, as RR said, you are a slow learner.

So tell me is your deliberate ignorance and frigging pathetic hate lies something to do with the intense trained along with the priests while you were butt fooking the children of the congregation or does it come naturally?

<quoted text>
Let's discuss her "facts".
1. "Stalin was in office he revived the Russian Orthodox Church"
-in the 20s and 30s, nearly all of its clergy, and many of its believers, were shot or sent to labor camps. Theological schools were closed, and church publications were prohibited.
-Between 1917 and 1935, 130,000 Orthodox priests were arrested, 95,000 were put to death.
-Between etween 1927 and 1940, the number of Orthodox Churches in the Russian Republic fell from 29,584 to less than 500.
-After Stalin's death, the Russian churches expanded, back up to almost 25,000. But then Khrushchev began his own Stalin-esque anti-Christian tirade and by 1985, they churches were back down to 7,000.
How dare I use facts!
Why limit it to a specific time, how’s about after your self imposed dates?

Ahh you won’t do that because it proves the fact that you deny – right limp dick?

http://hollowverse.com/joseph-stalin/
During World War II, Stalin eased up considerably on religion. He allowed for tens of thousands of Russian Orthodox churches to reopen, adopted an official policy of tolerance toward Muslims, and re-established the hierarchy of leadership in the Russian Orthodox Church.

Also read Stalin’s Russia 1924-53
By the time of Stalin’s death in 1953, 25000 churches had reopened along with a number of monasteries and seminaries

They go something like this:
RR: "What are you talking about? I never said that. What I said was Robert Downey, Jr used to do coke."
C=MC2: "See? I already told you that he hasn't done drugs in a while, you stupid godbot."
RR: "Can you read? I didn't say that."
C=MC2: "I know you can't get a hard on, you've already admitted it."
RR: "o.O"
C=MC2: "That's a nice rebuttal, thanks for admitting you have ED."
RR: "I never said that, you did."
C=MC2: "Yes you did, everyone here knows it."
RR: "fuckit"
Mocking disability again, jeez you must be a good christian

Please provide a link to claimed conversation or admit you are a chicken sh|t liar for your god who can’t get it up for a woman

Here is one, more or less as spoken and in the correct order.

RR “You can’t have sex with a woman”

CM “ Brave of you to admit that you can’t have sex with a woman”

RR “I never said that”

CM “here is a link to the page”

RR “It says nothing about that on that page”

CM “Here is a link to the actual post”
