the point hasn't changed so why as a pagan do you feel it's your place to talk to 'christians' about how they're supposed to live?
shouldn't pagans be concerned with cleaning up their own self-righteous & hedonistic backyards?

so when communist/socialist/atheist dictators kill millions of people to promote unity through a mutual godless belief system; that's okay with you people???
it turns out that people wind up just as dead, regardless who kills them.

He was not a Christian , and the article never says he was a Christian. His actions prove he was an atheist working in a system that is usually Christian affiliated and directed. Slime-ball atheists can sneak their way into almost all organizations that have good intentions and ruin it.
You should be ashamed of yourself for lying , you hateful brainless bigot.
Well, here's my opinion:

Christianity, as you express it, is just the expectation that an invisible, immortal benefactor will descend upon you one day, take you away and make you happy forever. It's childish, self-centered escapism and very little more.

That you represent your fantasies as established and incontrovertible facts puzzles me a little; functioning adults should be above this sort of thing, it seems to me.

What's more disturbing is your conviction that those of us who do not share your fantasies are somehow responsible for all manner of mayhem and upheaval. This delusion has a darker, more ominous tone. It's the kind of fanaticism that impels people to burn heretics, go on Crusades and fly airliners into buildings.

If you have thought it through and you are genuinely convinced that you cannot conceivably be mistaken about these invisible friends of yours, then I submit that you are just the latest in a centuries-long parade of righteous lunatics.

I note with relief that this kind of thinking seems to be on the wane. When I was a boy my family was full of people who expressed themselves precisely the way you do. I earnestly hope that your brand of religious fervor goes the way Neanderthal Man did: quietly and without a trace.

Then you disagree with the Christians assisting those who were left with troubles due to hurricane Sandy?

<quoted text>We will not stop until the last christian draws his last breath! I swear to Dawkins!
Are you serious??? Who is we???

I have no desire to take away anyone's right to believe as they choose. The very same right that allows them to believe as they choose also affords me the same right to my beliefs.

We talk about how "ugly" some Christians are and fail to look at ourselves. Your post is just as hate filled as the one that you responded to. We complain when they don't call out their fellow believers for the things that they say and then we turn a blind eye to the other side of the fence simply because that is where we are standing.

I will stand for their right to believe as they choose even though I do not agree with some of their beliefs. It would be nice if some of them were a little kinder but that goes for both sides.

I used to think that I didn't care how someone else believed...that it didn't affect me. However in recent years I have come to believe that it does. Hatred...violence...negativity ...lack of compassion no matter what side of the fence it comes from affects us all.

I don't know who "we" is...but please...don't include me in that group.

On a side note...I am well aware that the poster (most Christians) that you responded to would not stand up for my right to believe as I choose. Obviously you wouldn't either unless I believed the same as you.

When I read your post...I couldn't help but think...if you took the words Christian and Dawkins and changed them to non-believers/agnostic/atheist and God...it would sound like the posts that many of the "Christians" that have been posting here recently.

Hatred is hatred no matter where is originates.

Functioning adults know the difference between hostile opinion and truth claims. Christian claims could be childish, self centered?(Don't know where you claim that since to offer is extended to everybody, obviously you reject based on your own choice) and escapist in your opinion and be objectively true at the same time. Your opinion does not alter truth one bit. If you are correct in your assessement then the claims of Christ are false. To vilify Christians does not make the truth claims of Christ automatically false. Functioning adults know that also.

<quoted text>I know you know how to laugh so....I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest you maybe were bored and came in here looking to dance. Whaddyathink? That's cool and all,'cos that's what this Hokey-Pokey's all about, but if it's the least bit true, is it really copacetic to be smug with all these other folks who stepped up to sign your dance card? You caught me off-guard, for one - I wasn't sure what you were after with your initial post.
I would be more than a little ironic from those who doth protest too much about simply disagreeing and how that shouldn't elicit insults (even when they did way more than disagree and were obnoxious and insulting)if my simply posting quotes of the founding fathers should have made it reasonable to anticipate the responses I got.

And while I am never shy to put on my dancing shoes, I really didn't think quotes by the founding fathers should have been perceived as an invitations t all. Unless all the claims of oppression and how far we have strayed from what the founding fathers would have been ok with is nothing more that total b.s. and simply people loving to play the oppression card just as some Christians can play the persecution card. Or just another example of how society has deteriored down to who is a better citizen by claiming it is their set of beliefs that is much more in tune with the founding fathers.

Like I said, I went to the site to how they felt about democracy. I was pretty surprised they felt how they did. But it didn't bother me because you won't see me using the founding fathers to argue a point. I really don't give a rat;s ass what they wanted. They were simply men. Men who were ok with slavery,men who thought women shouldn't vote, men who were against democracy, and soon.

But like I also said I have seen this debate a hundred times on Topix. It is why I also posted it on "Prove there is a God' and WSJLM simply because I thought people would be interested to know regardless of what side they had been arguing. You know the only room that had anybody respond negatively was this room? Given the posters I am not surprised who it was. If knowing the truth is not only not preferred but considered a challenge to fight then I pity people that insecure. However I will keep it in mind if I ever get the urge to share something again that I think people would be interested in that when i do it in here, some people will take actual quotes as a personal attack by the very people many hold up as the model to follow. I didn't give it any more thought than I found it interesting and figured others might as well.

Then again I haven't been in here in a long time regardless of what some people are claiming as I post under one name. It didn't take long for me to remember why I left. It was different back when it was you, Micah, X, and a few others. Now there is very little meaningful discourse and the ones that are the most condescending ironically normally are the least-informed. I have never understand why so many of these rooms turn into some sort of self-help group where all posters do is kiss each other's ass all day while attempting ganging up on anybody on the other "side" because not only they want approval from their fellow poster they want to make sure the same people they defend will do the same for them. Why even come to Topix if someone's only objective is to be closed-minded and attack anyone who feels differently?

I posted some quotes by the founding founding to illustrate they were very religious men

None of this is directed at you of course
