Intriguing no. I find the state of the whole world to be disgusting. Missionaries don't try to force anyone, they try to help and yes they talk about Jesus, which is now good reason to kill them? Is that what you're getting at? Or maybe they deserve to be killed because evil men killed in the name of Christ for hundreds of years past. Who knows? No one in the past 5 years has ever told me to kill for Christ and I'm a much nicer person because of my new faith. I've known missionaries who got hurt and killed just for being Christian and I've also known evil people who were Christians in my childhood. There are also millions of evil people all over the world who have nothing to do with Christianity. It's all about human power to me. I just don't think generalisations can accurately be made and that people need to stop living in the past and making up crap. Religion doesn't seem to be any different to Politics, imh.

Yeah, I posted a link to the page that article was on. WW2 was the last of it. I wasn't even born then and the Romans before them were worse. My whole point was about the now.

And in the "now", accused witches are still being burned to death by Christians.

Talk about jesus? Are you kidding me?

"You need jesus, because if you don't have jesus you're going to burn in hell FOREVER!!!"

or...

"Won't you please, please, pleeeeeeeze accept jesus? Because if you don't, you're going to burn in hell forever. You don't want to burn in hell forever, do you? Jesus loves you, and if you don't love him back, well, you'll just have to burn."

If that isn't forcing/ browbeating/ intimidating/ coercing/ threatening/ strongarming/ menacing/ terrorizing someone...

What Christians? There is no evidence of that, none whatsoever. You can continue this by yourself. Happy to have amused you.

I have never heard anything about Romans burning christians at the stake. But I do know how christians like to pretend that they're alway being persecuted. Daniel in the lion's den? I'm betting it's christian propaganda and bullshit. Romans burning christians? Same bet.

Christians have been running the show and spewing their propaganda for more than 1,700 years--that's a lot of momentum to overcome.

I know some of the missionaries that go to Africa, PNG and India and they don't say things like that, neither do any of the Christians I've met here and neither do I. A lot of those missionaries also use their own funds and are Teachers or Medical Professionals who do a lot of good for unfortunate, very ill people, regardless of whether they want to hear about Christ or not. America is not the world.

The christians who burned that poor woman. Neither the author nor the editor of the article probably wanted to offend the world's christian community by pointing out that a band of christians burned a "witch" alive...just like they used to do in the good ole days.

Yes they do; they have to. Threats of hell and damnation are part of the package, and you know it. Otherwise, what's the need for "salvation?"

Your book of lies isn't a history book, it's a book of lies. It proves it all on its own, with no help needed from me.

What, they need to go to undereducated, Third World countries to seek converts because they can't sell their religion in their own homeland?
