I'm sorry the bloke went through that. It's a verbal cage fight @ times on here. I put up with it because there are some people I do like to have a yarn with. Others...need a good kangaroo kick in the guts.
Sometimes I think that if there was a God, the first thing he would say if he came down here to Earth is: "Hey kids! Stop fighting!"
"Nor will I go with one again"

you went out with a lesbian muslim woman?!?! this i would have to see to beleive:-)

No but they are pretty typical in somewhat one sided examples of the atrocities that are instigated by religious intolerance. Rather like the intolerance of the IRA, NLFT and those good christians the KKK and anti abortionists in the US are guilty of. Funny how you never want to bring up those atrocities.
Nope I am not outraged, as you can tell by my whimsical comment and honey, contrary to your lying mumbo jumbo I take the pIss out of Islam just as much as I do with christianity. However, I consider I do it fairly and am unbiased in that humour, I base my comments of fact, unlike some gopdbots I could name on topix who base there hatred on hearsay and sensationalist press.
You made the statement and I provided a counter and highlighted the fact that you were lying in your ignorance and it also seems using clairvoyance in you hatred. As for why you need to search for muslim outrage, perhaps because the usual sensationalist hate sheets you usually read are too journalistically sh|te to publish it. There is considerable muslim response, quite possible far more than good old american response but, hey, if you want to be blind to facts them feel free to wallow in your own ignorance.
I lie? So tell me who has been fighting in Afganistan for the last 25 or so years? First christian Russians followed by christian westerners? Have you asked if they want help or are you simply imposing that help because you are christian?
Ahh you mean like the only war the mighty US has won on it’s own since the Mexican-American War was against a group of Caribbean island hill farmers in Grenada? You want to big up then get your facts straight. FYI the mujahideen kept the might of russia on the hop and did exactly the same for the NATO forces more recently, you may not like their methods (neither do I) but unless you can claim victory in Afganistan then tough
The sickest religion is all a tough one and the accolade goes jointly to all 3 of the abrahamic religions but on a personal note Muslims have never hurt me or mine, Jews have never hurt me or mine, christians have.
You don’t know anything but you can guess which is why your consider I sold out, because you are guessing at the facts and inserting your own prejudices into my life but hey, you are a godbot and so it’s understandable
Lol, talk about taking blonde 'rational atheist' oxymoron to a new level!!!

Honey, I wasn't talking about ancient history, we are looking at today!

IRA was a political fight 20 years ago

NLFT last exercised violence 13 years ago

KKK was over 50 years ago

anti abortionists have killed less than ten people to protect unborn children over 30 years

You can add all the casualties of these Christian rejects and still not equal ONE act TODAY of Islamic violence IN ONE LOCATION OF MANY!

Oh, here is some interesting info for you, please note the point about atheists...;

http://www.wikiislam.net/wiki/Muslim_Statisti...

As to my source of info, you are right, I did use a 'hate sheet'; Al Jazeera

However, are you denying those situations do not exist? Really?

No one agrees with your defining of 'Christian' wars.

Nor would any rational person agree that the US needed help to kick Allah's ass again and again. Or save one twisted Islamic country after another from Muslim despots.

Oh, I'm a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian.

Atheism requires no faith whatsoever. That is one of the biggest misconceptions about atheism. Atheism isn't a belief; it is an absense of belief in a god. What an atheist is saying is, "Well there is no evidence for a god being real, therefore, I have no good reason to believe God is real". They are not asserting that there definitely is no god. They are saying they don't believe in one. And they have good reasons for not believing in one. Atheism requires no faith for this reason; they have evidence, reason, rationality, and logic on their side. All these things point to the fact that there probably isn't a god, so the atheist therefore doesn't believe there is a god.
On the other hand, most believers are saying that God definitely exists, but have not a shred of proof to back it up.
Bob, as far as I know Atheism is definite about the non-existence of any deity. However, the Agnostics are uncertain about the existence of such. Agnostics seek information/ evidence of such existence.

From Wikipedia:
Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is the absence of belief that any deities exist.

Your Wikipedia citation confirms my contribution Thinking. I was just trying to highlight the difference between atheists and agnostics.

Do you have any evidence that the late jc did any such thing. Remember that the babble compiled by committee 350 years after events, edited and bastardised to the extent that it had to be re-compiled in the early 1600s, not from the original but from babbles available at the time is not evidence.

However there is actual contemporary evidence that the guy you call christ was a terrorist and murderer who was crucified for his crimes. Using this (multiply sourced) evidence those people are MORE christian than you.

And since when was it your decision who is christian or who is not? Jeezoos fooking christ on a crutch, you arrogant T\/\/AT

So funny how a good, charitable, christian minded godbots ALWAYS deny the faith of another christian if their actions discredit what they believe christianity is all about.

So tell me, should you, the guy who lusts after and covets another mans wife be considered christian? Funny really there is no commandment aginst terrorism yet there is one about what you consider to be normal christian behaviour

I don’t really give a sh|t what you were talking about, just turning the switch does not make it all go away.

The IRA still exist and is STILL committing murder

The KKK still exists and update there website regularly

Ahhh so killing less than 10 makers it all OK?

Yes 7 out of what,about 200 countries, that’s less than 10 so it must be OK in your book. But you want to use wikipedia as a source then try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_terror...

Thank you for admitting it. but it seem your source is wikipedia, and that link you offered has been anonymously edited more than 30 times since October 2012.

Nope I am not denying any such thing, I am commenting on your bias, ignorance and hatred to the extent of racial hatred.

Most people agree with me on the point of christian wars, there are just a few deliberately ignorant christians who, despite the documented facts still deny it.

Rational, you use that word a lot, must be a pet of yours. Yet the US would not go to war with any muslim country without the backing/blessing/military/help of the majority of NATO aligned countries. Since before the American revolution, except once, whenever the US has tried they have got you a$$ spanked. And that once was against a group of poorly armed and badly organised hill farmers on a Caribbean island.

And again I ask, did anyone ever ask if they wanted saving? Nope they did not, the only reason for US (and NATO) intervention in the Arab world is political greed of oil revenue

So you choose war, fair enough – my clan motto is Aut Pax Aut Bellum, so this should be fun.

<quoted text>
A Florida woman is accused of drowning one child after trying to poison another, in what she described as accordance with a local pastor’s sermon, WPEC-TV reported on Wednesday.

Kimberly Dawn Lucas is currently being held in Palm Beach County Jail in connection with the death of her former partner’s 2-year-old daughter and the attempted killing of the child’s 10-year-old brother at their home in Jupiter on Monday.

Investigators said Lucas attended a sermon by Metropolitan Community Church pastor Lea Brown this past Sunday that covered the Biblical story of Abraham readying himself to sacrifice his son on orders from God, only to be stopped by God at the last minute.

Lucas is accused of trying the same thing — trying to kill the two young children she was helping to raise, but she wrote in a suicide note that God didn’t step in and stop her, at least in the case of the 2-year-old girl. Lucas’ own suicide attempt failed. Police reportedly found Lucas’ message (PDF) typed on a computer in the home.

Say what?

Actually Galileo , Queen Elizabeth (I assume 1st but 2nd too) and Churchill were/are christian. Don’t know about the rest and not really bothered.

However that makes not the slightest difference to the FACTS

Just because they upset your sensibilities does not give you the right to dictate who is and who is not Christian, or perhaps you have been made pope and no one bathered telling the church?
