You misunderstand me. My friend wasn't fighting in Iraq, he was a Christian NGO. Moreover, I have several Christian NGO friends who worked in Afghanistan helping widows establish businesses, working to develop alternative crops for farmers and setting up schools for girls. And that is just a tiny part of the countries and Christian NGO organizations the Church I pastored was involved in supporting and sending out.<quoted text>
Yes I am sure we all have friends...
So because you had a friend who fought in Iraq this is cause to excuse the use of US tax dollars to pay for Israel to kill women and children in Gaza, to bomb hospitals and schools in Gaza? How very christian of you
Honey I had a friend who was killed defending Kurdish women and children from Sadams hit squads. Guess what, he was atheist.... get over the sanctimonious lying ignorance of your p|ss poor excuse for religion that needs to lie to excuse itself with justification for lying
I also had 2 friends (1 atheist, 1 Muslim) who have been crippled in Afghanistan defending villagers against the Taliban.
My grandfather (confirmed atheist) was killed (shot by US troops) for defending a French (christian, catholic) woman from being raped by those good christian US troops just after the D day landing.
I have a friend who lives India, she too is atheist, she continues to spend her holidays in Afghanistan helping out where she can, as she did during the worst of the fighting.
I have several friends (all atheist) who work for charities working around the world, including countries like Afghanistan and Iraq
Yes I have and had friends too.
Finally I personally have no doubt that I donate more to various charities in cash and time each year than you earn and guess what, I am atheist
As to donations and service, I'd bank you are wrong.
