Gee where in my post did I say religion was the major instigator for WWI & WWII.<quoted text> Exactly.
<quoted text> BS. The Civil War, WW1 and WW2 were not religious wars. There may have been a religious component but they were fought for other reasons. Most wars were fought for reasons other than religion exclusively..
what I said was that Hitler thought he was doing the work of the Christian god in his efforts to exterminate Jews.
here's a whole website about that
Whether you like it or not, Christianity was used to justify both slavery and the Holocaust. I never said the doctrine of Christianity supports that, only that people use Christianity to support their evil
Most wars in Medieval times were religious wars...check your history
Fact is the Israelites used their beliefs to justify rape, pillage and burn other kingdoms by stating that their god commanded them to do it, so its okay<quoted text>I answered that! You ignore a boatload! The fact they were given 400 years to turn things around falls on deaf ears! The list of offenses. The fact they were time specific..
No, the pope started the Crusades<quoted text> Muslem aggression..
"The Crusades started in 1095 when Pope Claremont preached the First Crusade at the Council of Claremont. The Pope's preaching led to thousands immediately affixing the cross to their garments - the name Crusade given to the Holy Wars came from old French word 'crois' meaning 'cross'. The Crusades were great military expeditions undertaken by the Christian nations of Europe for the purpose of rescuing the holy places of Palestine from the hands of the Mohammedans. They were eight in number, the first four being sometimes called the Principal Crusades, and the remaining four the Minor Crusades. In addition there was a Children's Crusade. There were several other expeditions "
and yet you blame all atheists for the actions of other atheists like Stalin and Mao...who's artocies had more to do with politics and staying in power than to advance the cause of atheism<quoted text> Do you define Christianity by atrocities committed in defiance of the teachings of its Founder? The mis use of a thing do not invalidate the legitimate use of a thing..
do you know the meaning of the word HYPOCRITE??/
For a definition, look in the mirror
<quoted text>Slavery was universal in the ancient world. With or without the Bible. Slavery did not derive from the Bible. If so prove it!.
Never said slavery was derived from the bible, but that the bible was used to support slavery in modern times
I also suggest you reread your bible, particularly the old testament. The bible condoned slavery,even to the point of a man selling his daughter into slavery
When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
damn right, I define christianity by how those who profess to be christians act....<quoted text>
Your definition has nothing to do with the teachings of Jesus. You define Christianity by atrocities committed but that has never .
