Get real. Deep down inside they're not really happy. They'll never be genuinely happy with or without their fake marriage.
You are omniscient now? i bet your just full of bullshit, really.

one has to like themself before they can truly love another or be truly happy, so i can see where you would know nothing about this.

You have made your point thank you. Christians are just as savage as any other group. Let's see.
Deaths Caused by Christians:
1562-1598 – French Wars of Religion – France – 4 million
1095-1291 – Crusades to the Holy Land, Middle East, Spain, Africa – 1.5 million.
1184-c. 1860 – Various Christian Inquisitions – Europe – 17,500
Do you mind if I just say 6 million give or take a few. That's a huge number in just those conflicts. Especially only representing 7% of all wars.
I wonder how many natives of the Americas died.
Thank you once again.
Crusades was Christianity answer to Islamic imperialism just like WWII was the US answer to Pearl Harbor.
Ghenghis and Kublai Khan racked up about 31 million deaths between the two of them.
Secularists and atheists killed about 170,000 Catholic Vendeans during the French Revolution. In the city of Nantes, the Revolutionary commander Jean-Baptiste Carrier disposed of Vendean prisoners-of-war in a horrifically efficient form of mass execution. In the so-called "noyades" [mass drownings] naked men, women, and children were tied together in specially constructed boats, towed out to the middle of the river Loire and then sunk.
Vende, a coastal department in western France, is calling for the incident to be remembered as the first genocide in modern history.

<quoted text>Yes, good point. the Basis of the Manifest Destiny Doctrine was that god gave a big thumbs up to christians slaughtering their way across the continent in his name.
Don't forget the recent Balkan conflict, that was a three way religious war with christians doing wholesale slaughtering of villages. What a grand moral religion...
Perhaps but governments promoting militant state atheism killed more men,women and children in less than one hundred years than Christianity, Judaism and Islam did in 2000 years.State atheism is a toxic worldview that has never ever been beneficial to mankind and which has left only broken and dead bodies in its wake.

"Just who has imposed on the suffering human race poison gas, barbed wire, high explosives, experiments in eugenics, the formula for Zyklon B, heavy artillery, pseudo-scientific justifications for mass murder, cluster bombs, attack submarines, napalm, intercontinental ballistic missiles, military space platforms, and nuclear weapons? If memory serves me, it was not the Vatican."

<quoted text>yet those were people of faith doing the killing for those atheist states...just because the state says there is no god does in no way mean that people gave up their faith. this faulthy argument has been pointed out to you before yet you again post this lie. Seems the faithful have a little problem with honesty and morals...


You have been posting that silly argument for ever. It was transparent the first time you posted it and it remains so today. In the first place the Red Army executed those that didn't follow orders so the options weren't really too pleasant even for those that didn't like the policies.. Secondly most of the Red Army troops were educated in the atheistic school system and they were the ones doing the raping and the butchering.

IIvan's Terrible World War II Experiences: The Red Army G.I. in the Great Patrtiotic War, April 9, 2007
By C. M Mills "Michael Mills"



...The Russians died in droves. They were trained from birth to worship the ATHEISTIC state. They were guilty of rape, looting, torture, Anti-Semitism and cruelty in all its hydra headed manifestations. Those Soviets who were captured by the enemy as POW's were suspected by their own government as being spies. Many of these troops were sent to the infamous GULAG's following the end of the war in 1945..........

Dimitri Nosarev was born in Communist Russia, a product of the Soviet Union. It was a country where God was forbidden. Everything was penetrated with the spirit of ungodliness. Educated by an ATHEISTIC system, he eventually served in the Red Army.

Oh yes Islamic imperialism versus Christian imperialism. Both are cancerous religions where the all mighty male ego goes head to head to establish one goal... To rule the other.

I hate to say this because I know that there are many good Christians just like many good people exist in all religions, but.... Like all other religious and non religious beliefs, Christianity has to this very day a dark history that fosters violence that is ruthlessly waged against those who don't bow down, accept and fear the Christian God. It basically parallels all other savage theologies and barbaric idealogical premises used to wage war and/or commit individual atrocities against another person.

Once Christianity gained favor in the Roman empire, the lust for dominance argued to no end the authoritarian nature of their God. Since then many faithful have gone on by emulating their God and have taken the attitude of being exceptionally authoritarian themselves. They have one goal... To politically control society and vanquish anything that doesn't follow the belief system that they wish to established as the law of the land.

You're trying to do damage control by posting numbers but in in my opinion, the blood of one is equal to the blood of billions. So don't think of yourself as better. Your faith is just a cheap construct based on the historical savage nature of MANkind.

Did I mention that miltant state atheism is the #1 killer of men, women, and children in recorded history and pagan societies come in second. Matter of fact Iraq under Saddam Hussein was considered a secular so secular nations have their own crosses to bear, no pun intended.

Do you always apologize for history's greatest mass murderers by trying to drag other worldviews down to their level?

"The highest principles for our aspirations and judgments are given to us in the Jewish-Christian religious tradition. It is a very high goal which, with our weak powers, we can reach only very inadequately, but which gives a sure foundation to our aspirations and valuations. If one were to take that goal out of its religious form and look merely at its purely human side, one might state it perhaps thus: free and responsible development of the individual, so that he may place his powers freely and gladly in the service of all mankind. "
