Poll after poll shows that a majority of Christians state emphatically that they hate atheists.

Why?

Setting aside for the moment that Christians are supposed to love everyone, atheism is merely the non-acceptance of your belief system.

I don't hear Christians saying that they hate Hindus or Buddhists or Seiks.

These people don't just reject your religion but actually follow religions with competing gods.

That's an ACTUAL violation of one of the Commandments. There are passages in the Bible which demand that you murder these people.

Yet, not a peep from the Christians about how all Hindus should be killed.

Meanwhile, a regularly rallying cry is to round up all the atheists.

So, what gives?

I mean, it's gotten to the point where Christians are literally engaging in an organized campaign of disinformation. Look at the recent Time article that claimed Atheists didn't help in the aftermath of the Tornado despite the fact that, on a per capita basis, they provided the MOST help of any "religious group" in the nation.

Why do you feel you need to lie about a group who's only "sin" is that they no longer believe what you tell them?

Don't lie and get your panties in a wad.

We've NEVER believed what YOU tell us.
And THAT'S no sin.

May I offer you a light and a map?

I read the Hobbit when I was in 2nd grade. There was a map on the inside of the cover. It also was make believe.

May I offer you some medicine? Machines? Crops? Transportation? The space program? Electricity?

Oh, and the internet you are using to read this? Also brought to you by science.

Not, put away your high horse and answer the question.

Why is it that your religion which you claim is about love produces only hate for anyone who doesn't do exactly what you say?

I read the Hobbit books on the beach a Wakiki. Are you trying to tell me Middle Earth does not exist? That's ridiculous. There's a map, for Christ's sake.

Check out any youtube video by a Christian talking about atheists. Look up polls of Christians. See the fact that Time magazine was spreading lies about Atheists.

Christians are to love our enemy...but we war with the sword of god against ideas and philosophies raised up against the knowledge of God

for example we fight against the idea of evolution..but we are not to hate the person who believes it...

we are to keep our children from their ideas however...how many Christian parents are watching what their children are being taught.

second we fight against the idea of homosexual marriage , because the idea is wrong..but we don't bash people up...or use violence to get our own way..

same with abortion..we should be very gentle with the mothers who are being misled to kill their own off spring ..but we should explain it is taking a life.etc etc etc

And our message is that Jesus forgives us our sins..and gives us the armor of the breast plate of righteousness.

Tolkien is a good author, have you ever read Silmarillion?
Couple that with The Book of Enoch the Prophet and you can conjure an interesting theory.

You however, need a compass may I lend you mine?

What makes you think you are hated?
Are you suffering delusional paranoia?
You didn't do anything I asked and I still love you.

"The study, conducted among 350 Americans adults and 420 Canadian college students, asked participants to decide if a fictional driver damaged a parked car and left the scene, then found a wallet and took the money, was the driver more likely to be a teacher, an atheist teacher, or a rapist teacher?

The participants, who were from religious and nonreligious backgrounds, most often chose the atheist teacher."

It seems people would trust a rapist before they would trust an atheist.

Cisco, I'm gonna go ahead and tell you, son...your posts to Nuggin don't really sound loving so far.

In fact, you sound snotty.

That aside, yes, I agree with Nuggin.
Atheists are hated or, at the very least, given that 'raised eyebrow' thing and by who?

I know I can honestly say that, as soon as a new poster is found to be atheist on the CF, the whole attitude of any who were posting to him/her immediately changes. Suddenly, that atheist poster doesn't know anything about the Bible, has no morals, is going to hell, etc.

I'll take that cookie, dear, and it better have some chocolate in it.

That is interesting?

i suppose the logic behind that is a rapist has only one objective ..his desire is leading him, to break one Law ,,fornication, and may not necessarily be a thief.

whereas an atheist has no inner law at all, so his conscience answers to no one if he can get away from being caught by the law of the land...he will..for his only allegiance is to himself.

Wrong. Rape is about power over another individual.

Wrong. All humans have a law placed within them that God placed there. We call it Moral Conscience, which, if you listen you hear God's Voice.

I know that as soon as you discover that a new poster is a human on the CF, your whole attitude is that they are better than you and so you resent them. You resent that God made them human and has overlooked you all these years.
A cookie won't help. I don't blame you for being resentful, since you failed to receive the human card and so you are playing without a full deck.

"Tolkien wrote many times that Middle-earth is located on our Earth.[1] He described it as an imaginary period in Earth's past, not only in The Lord of the Rings,[2] but also in several letters.[3] He put the end of the Third Age at about 6,000 years before his own time,[4] and the environs of the Shire in what is now northwestern Europe (Hobbiton for example was set at the same latitude as Oxford),[5] though in replies to letters he would also describe elements of the stories as a "... secondary or sub-creational reality" or "Secondary belief".[6] During an interview in January 1971, when asked whether the stories take place in a different era, he stated, "No ... at a different stage of imagination, yes."[1][7] However, he did nod to the stories' setting on Earth; speaking of Midgard and Middle-earth, he said: "Oh yes, they're the same word. Most people have made this mistake of thinking Middle-earth is a particular kind of earth or is another planet of the science fiction sort but it's just an old fashioned word for this world we live in, as imagined surrounded by the Ocean."[1] He continued to make references to its being "... a brief episode of History" of Earth as late 1971.[8]"

The answer to this is simple, rather like you. I would not like anything of mine to be taken without my consent. I assume same other people feel the same way about their stuff. So I don't steal.

Has to be the Law doesn't it?..because self interest could get them jailed or fined..Penalties of the law are big incentives to keep the unlawful little guy in line.

However a hardened criminal weighs up the risks and decides the risk is worth the decision, doesn't he, because if the crime pays well he can afford a good lawyer..

And we all know that justice in the west doesn't depend on your guilt or innocence but on your lawyer.

So you would be off raping, pillaging, etc if you did not believe in the deity of the bible?

One thing that bothers me about Topix is that someone will judge a religion, or a group of people by what a few people say on here. The people who post here usually use it as a soapbox.

People on soapboxes are opinionated and usually don't represent the views of the group that they purport to be speaking to. I'm a christian, and none of the other christians I know in real life would ever believe the shit that some of the people post here. I apologize for the behavior of a few of those here who share the same religion as I do.... We are called to do good in the world, not stir up hate and dischord.
