<quoted text>I already told you that I wasn't threatened with it as a kid. I didn't need to be. It's terrifying enough as it is. Do you disagree? As a young kid, is it not scary to hear that if you don't believe in god, you will burn forever? Is it not scary to be a kid who feels a passing pang out doubt, and then worries if that moment of disbelief will send him to hell? Are you really defending hell as a concept and as an OK thing to teach our children?
You obviously haven't looked too hard on these forums. I've been told more times than I can count that I'm going to hell unless I believe, and I've seen it happen many times to other people.
No, it's not my "reason" for not being christian. The reason I am not a christian is the same reason you are not a buddhist. I don't give your religion a special status in my lack of belief.
I don't know, man. I can honestly say that I haven't given the whole burning in hell thing too much thought. I wasn't scared into being a Christian. I chose to be one. I choose to enjoy and follow the teachings of Jesus.

You keep bringing up being threatened by hell. A lot. Where you threatened a lot as a kid or something?
I have never heard a Christian say outloud, believe in God or else.... I've never seen it written, I've never heard i preached that way.
This is your "reason" for not being Christian.
I was by the nuns in the grade school (1st thru 8) I attended.
In fact we were told we were put on Earth to suffer so that we could earn our way into heaven. we weren't suppose to enjoy life....that go meant for us to live our lives in misery. and if we dared to something fun and enjoyable (most of which was a "sin") we would go to hell.

in fact in 1st grade, I remember the nun telling us that:
sex was a sin
it should only be used between married people
and that even then we weren't suppose to enjoy it, that would be a sin

you should go find Yellowdog, she's always spouting that only those who believe in her god can get into heaven all others are doomed to an eternity in hell.

that's the case with almost all evangelical fanatics and the Catholic church. all those who don't believe exactly like them are doomed to hell. in fact you could be the most kind, helpful, philanthropist but if you're a atheists its off to hell for you. Meanwhile you could be the world's worst serial killer, as long as you say you're sorry on your death bed and announce your belief in Jesus, you're saved and off to heaven

<quoted text>If you read my original post in which I responded to your vampire nonsense, I acknowledged that you said you would only consider. That doesn't change my point.
So, you would consider it reasonable to believe in vampires if 2 billion other people did? No evidence, no nothing, just a large number of people who believe it is all you need to believe in something so stupid. That's why I said you're fickle.
No. Damn it, tim. Again, I never said I'd believe, I said us consider.

Got that?

You're not getting reamed for anything, RR- dial down your persecution complex meter, why don't you?

You said you have never heard a Christian threaten people with hell who don't believe in your god and that you have never seen that written.

So...AGAIN- you are either lying- considering just how many so-called Christians here HAVE written that of which JR is just one of MANY- or else you don't read much of what is posted here by your fellow Christians.

You got reamed for NOTHING- unless being told that you are WRONG and that MANY here have said and written what you claim you have never heard or read- is your idea of being reamed.

The REALITY is that MANY "Christians"- both on this thread AND in "real" life do indeed tell those who don't believe in their god that they will burn for all eternity in hell- and to add insult to injury, many of your fellow Christians who state just that do so GLEEFULLY.

Not that it really matters to those who don't believe in your hell any more than they believe in your god- the POINT is that saying such things to people is NOT at ALL Christian- not by a long shot.

What it is is mean, petty, vindictive and nasty, so considering how many Christians do indeed tell those who believe differently that they will burn in hell forever- and to tell them gleefully no less!- well, maybe that IS what it means to be a Christian- that of being mean, petty, vindictive and just plain nasty.

I do wonder how Christians who say what you claim you have never heard or read reconcile such ill feelings toward those who believe differently than they do to their supposed respect, adoration, reverence and love of their Jesus.

Makes them all sound like a bunch of mental cases- I am NOT saying that applies to YOU, RR, but I am quite puzzled as to why you would say you have never heard that or even read that when it can be found in SO many posts here by SO many who claim to be Christian.

BTW, is it how it works for YOU that yesterday I posted to you in response to your post about American schools in which I asked you if Asian Americans (born HERE) are any less American because many of them believe in a different god than Christians do and to which you did not reply?

I am assuming you saw that post of mine; if so, and because you didn't respond, I can now ONLY assume that you DO think Asian Americans are not as American as YOU are.

Do NOT ask me to find the post- it's here- it's from yesterday morning- either YOU find it or if you care to step up, you can answer the question now.

If you believe your god should be taught in American schools, why would that not include the gods of OTHER religions- including those who are Asian American and believe in Buddha?

Maybe you haven't. Think about it some more, and it should scare you. Then think about the fact that you told your kids, in no uncertain terms, that if they don't believe the same thing as you, they will go there forever. You might have said it nicely, you might have tried to lessen the blow - but if you tell something like that to a kid and that kid actually thinks about it, he or she will be scared.

And you chose to be on insofar as anyone has a choice about what they believe when they are born into a religious family. If you had grown up in a muslim family, you would be telling me that you "chose" to believe in the teachings of allah.

hey if they're gonna teach Buddha, then they also need to discuss the Flying Spaghetti Monster and his teachings

When you use the word, "understand", I dunno if I'd call it scary, but it is a bit humorous. I've gotten to the point where when you say you *understand*, it usually means that you don't.

I don't believe you'll ever get it.

You are frustrating. There is a difference between believing there is not a god and not believing in a god. It's an obvious distinction that should not be too hard to understand.

I know it's a forum, dipshit. But if you're gonna jump in and answer a question not asked to you, at least take the time to understand the context of the question.

You didn't understand?

ugh

I don't tweet, meaning I've never been on Twitter.
I haven't been on Facebook either.

Pretty simple, dude.

Honestly I didn't see that post yesterday.

But, no. If Asians or Asian Americans want to live in America, they should learn American traditions and values. They have every right to believe in Buddha but they have no right to infringe on us.

If you moved to china, do you think you could get your drivers license in 100 languages? Nope. That's the stupid shit that some Americans want & somehow pass the laws. I'd guess, people like you.

Ya I hear. It's a lack of belief... It's also a belief system based on the belief that there is no god.

That's what they believe, not what they know
