Thank you for all of your responses. I would admit in the ranks of Christianity there are some dishonest people. But not everyone is dishonest as you have alleged.<quoted text>
Based upon the quote I provided by Lincoln he felt every preacher was a lair making claims with no knowledge that the claims were true. All politicians reference god, especially in the 19th century. They do this for support from all the ignorant simple minded biased peasants who believe in god. However the original draft of the Gettysburg Address does not mention god. Dishonest christian historians added it later. Typical.
Such stereotyping a entire group is nothing more than extreme bigotry. The type of bigotry that the Nazis displayed openly and privately against the Jewish people. Such hatred lead to the genocide of millions of people.
The way you see people of faith thankfully is not the way most people surmise. Your views are outside the norm for a free society. Since we are a free society your welcome to your isolated extreme bigoted views.
I however do not share you view about Atheist the same way you view believers. There are many honest and upstanding Atheist. Then of course there are the extreme militant Atheist. Nasty, rude, bigoted Atheist with spewing hate. Thankfully they do not represent the entire Atheist population.
