A good Christian friend Dan sent me this:
"Being an atheist is ok.
Being an atheist and shaming religion and spirituality as silly is not ok.
Being a Christian is ok
Being homophobic, misogynistic, racist, or otherwise hateful in the name of Christianity is not ok.
Being a reindeer is ok.
Bullying or excluding another reindeer because he has a shiny red nose is not ok"
Merry Christmas !:)
I disagree. Just because religious people hold their beliefs in great personal esteem does not mean that religion should be free from criticism. There is a difference between someone offering actual criticism and someone simply "making fun" of religion, however. I would argue that the former is totally and completely justifiable, and that it is ridiculous to claim that religious belief is in some sort of "criticism free" category of it's own, but I suppose I would agree that the latter is pretty much unnecessary.

I think you were trying to be nice and I am not trying to be rude; however, you went parachuting off the New River Gorge Bridge and white water rafting and you didn't even know what town you were in?? It was Beckley, WV or the outskirts anyway my friend; the heart of coal country. Buddy Ebsen was not from WV. He was from Florida and the TV show the Beverly Hillbillies was about oil wealth no coal… so I don't know what that analogy was about??? The Clampetts were not hillbillies from WV; they usually referred to their home region simply as "the Hills." But it was generally understood to be the Ozarks Southwestern Missouri and Northwestern Arkansas nowhere near WV.

Criticism is not a bad thing, but trying to shame just for the sake of shaming is wrong.

Hello Susie,
I agree that hatred is a plague of man in general and certainly didn't mean to imply that Christianity CAUSED the behavior. I've known some absolutely wonderful people who were Christian. I meant merely that I found it appalling and that it wasn't making their religion look very good.
(Although it could be argued that a religion's merits are reflected in what kind of people are "produced" by said religion... but wasn't intending to make that argument.)
Peace and nice meetin' you!
You already know me Darwin... Think... Susie... WV?? I have been gone for a couple of years to say the least..lol

<quoted text> You have no objective standard for justice in th first place. You have a duty to declare what is unjust? LOL! Your evaluation of injustice carries no more weight than your opinion. You have to leech off objective standards while at the same time deny they really exist. That is schizophrenic. In the real world, might does make right. If you want to test that hypothesis just get in your car and run some red lights and speed down the road. Do it all the time until they catch you. Run some red lights. A man with a gun strapped to his side will pull you over and demand to see your Drivers License. If you smart off to him then you may get arrested which means you will be put in handcuffs and taken to jail. Might makes right!
So you see your god as a cosmic policeman with an attitude problem? Is that right?

Also, was hitler a moral character? After all, might makes right, right?

<quoted text>What is truly unjust in all this is the “man” God created; not God.. man is unwilling to give the adoration and respect God deserves and starts crying like little 3 years old when LIFE happens. God does not promise a perfect life and we have FREEWILL. The silliest thing atheist and agonists presume about us God loving people is we are God’s puppets. You make your path; God can guide you but you ultimately are in charge of your own road. When that road is bumpy, God isn’t to blame for the pot holes; that part of life. I love Jesus and that is the path I choose and I don’t understand why it bothers atheist at all. Go down your road and live as you please. You want tolerance yet you don’t freely give the one thing you desire. If you are a parent, then you know punishing a child for what they do wrong is natural and if you keep repeating the offense then don't blame God for the punishent; you have been prewarned :)
So, do you torture your kids if they come home late one time too many?

And it actually seems like it's god the one who starts crying "when life happens." He creates us, gives us free will, and then reacts like an all powerful two year old when we don't "give him the adoration and respect he deserves." Would not an all powerful, all knowing, all loving being be a bit more... patient than that? Nope, the ones that upset him go straight to hell!

Her attempt at "antagonist?" We are the bad guys in her book of life.

I am a rational skeptic
christianity is a failed moral system
christianity preaches xenophobia and paranoia, and breeds hate
christianity is a death cult, that fosters hate.
Individuals who advance this vile philosophy need be shamed, discredited, and held responsible for the damage done to culture.
That made me laugh really hard.. You are the least rational person on here...

Let's talk about 1 Corinthians 14
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Is that troubling?
It was the culture.. accepted then, troubling now.. Live and learn

Are you posting from West Virginia?

Did you assume that I was assuming to know where you were born or raised? Is that what you just did?
