I'm an atheist. I know many atheists. I regularly check out the reddit atheist page.

I've seen hundreds, if not thousands, of pictures/stories about people with bumper stickers/icons on their cars being vandalized by Christians.

For some reason, Christians feel that attacking someone's property is justified if that person expresses views that Christians don't like.

I've _NEVER_ met an Atheist who's EVER considered vandalizing some Christian's car for having a Jesus Fish or a bumper sticker that says something either mean ("Jesus hates fags!") or normal ("My other boss is a Jewish Carpenter").

So, what's the deal?

Why are you literally kicking holes in the bumpers of peoples cars for having a sticker that expresses their views? Why are you ripping FSM and Darwin Fish figures off people's cars?

..... It is best not to be different. Some people think of someone who is different as being an enemy, and treat them as such.
..... I am reminded of the requirement to be "nice" to one's neighbors.

Xtians believe they have a right to attack anything they deem ungodly...no matter if its a person, or an artifact. Its their god-given right.

Actually, I'm not criticizing Christians, I'm asking why they feel the need to vandalize the property of non-Christians for expressing beliefs with which the Christians disagree.

If I were criticizing them, I'd be commenting on their technique.

..... The problem is that most Christians are Christians in name only because they do NOT follow Jesus' lifestyle, nor do they ignore all teachings other than those of Jesus.

Are they true Christians? Are they following the actions of Jesus? or are they individuals responsible for their own actions? There are alot of people who label themselves Christians but will rejected.

"Xtian" vandalism to Darwin fish on cars is so common that the company now sells replacement feet in packages of SIX.

You f---head xtians need to go. Obviously, you think free speech and Constituional rights only apply to YOU - which of course is about as unAmerican as it gets. F off, you slime.

I've never personally known any Christians who believed that. But I think only a stupid person WOULD believe that. And surely a Christian would have to be wickedly stupid to think themselves righteous to do what is unGodly.
This is the first I've heard about Christians vandalizing peoples' cars. If the problem actually is of the magnitude here described, it almost sounds organized - like a widely circulating plan of action is being promoted. I have no affilliations with churches or Christian groups, so I'm not privy to what's going on in them.
But if Christians ARE doing what's been accused, they'll have Hell to pay for it.
Meantime, I hope they get their sneaky Christian butts beat when messing with Athiests' bumper stickers from now on.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't that be considered a hate crime?

People are people. There are atheists that commit crimes, and so called "christians" that commit crimes.

Did you know that Madeline Murray O'hare was murdered by an atheist?

..... I sometimes discuss religions with a biblethumper; if it's not in the bible then it's "foolishness" according to her. She is very unlikely to do any vandalism because it doesn't say in the bible that Jesus ever required his followers to be vandals.
