Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 Full story: Religion Dispatched 3,766

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

<quoted text>Don't care about that, either. Of course, bob aka sheldon will tell you I do, but then he's convinced that all Christians MUST believe the same thing- he apparently believes that Christians aren't allowed to think for themselves on the myriad of issues that crop up every day. I'm suprised he hasn't brought up that we as a group must buy the same brands of groceries based not on taste or variety but based on whether or not the manufacturer supports the Church. Me personally, I'll minimize my purchases of foreign-made items and foreign-grown produce as much as possible, but poor ol' sheldon is like a dog with a bone. Keep watching and thanks for the question.
He is simply pointing out that your religious book, the Bible, has a host of atrocities that are validated and even commanded by the deity. Fortunately, many Christians have gone well beyond the 'morality' that is contained in the Bible and have adopted humanist values in many cases. Bob likes to point out the contradiction between claiming to be a Christian, which is partly defined by belief in the moral guidance of the Bible, and what the Bible actually says.

You, sir, are point on. The way bob comes across reminds me of the old "Tasmanian Devil" in the Bugs Bunny cartoons- going full-throttle wack-job just to make a small point. Inre the Bible and the many atrocities contained therein, many are found in the Old Testament and are therefore why I (explained earlier that I pay) little heed to the Phrophets' writings. You have my ear- please continue.

do you mean space-time? you should at least try to get the very basics correct when talking about things you cannot comprehend...

Former President Bush says immigration-reform bill can pass
Full story: Venice Gondolier
The immigration-reform plan working its way through Congress "has a chance to pass," former President George W. Bush said.

Bush sees positives for U.S. in Egypt, Arab Spring
Full story: CNN
When the dust settles from the protests in Egypt and other Arab nations, the resulting political balance will be favorable to the United States, former President George W. Bush predicts.

++++++++++
----------

The following refers to the above:
==========

(1)
Lots of many street walkers in Chicago, and millions in many cities say more about the same thing, better than him Bush== SAYING immigration-reform bill can pass. If that is passed, millions would not take credit because Bush says it too, and he would get it? But just who needs his view anyway if he is already gone, for is it likeable if he does this and that by saying as former president?

(2)

Bush is just like any OTHER man in the streets, who would say the same ON ARAB SPRINGS, and what makes Bush think his views of any, are new and creative? AND why would he say so? It may show he still wants a part of OR TAINT the current policies by not knowing he is the past-gone, for definitely this proves Obama is also confused by being elected with no own show and standpoint, AS IF to be run by former president's policies; but no one elected the former one to run anything.

---------

(3)
THOSE WHO SAY BUSH HAS A GOOD HEART ARE WRONG. THE WAY BUSH COMMITS AS AN OUTLAW IS HUGE, with wrongdoings too much bigger than the average ordinary man in the streets. When the ordinary man would steal a million dollars, Bush would steal 10 billions because Bush had the opportunities and was close to where lots of money WERE, as president.

When the average man would rob, AS he works by oneself or with just few associates, could only rob and kill a few. But Bush was at the presidency, he could corrupt so many and use force of so many soldiers to kill hundreds of thousands and millions, like Iraq war. In other words, the degree of Bush's breaking the law and rules is very huge than the ordinary person, and has no limit. Bush is no good man WITH GOOD HEART, as his intention has been to violate anything and rules, by ignoring the law AND INTERNATIONAL RULING AND UNIVERSAL LAW.

But the case in point at this time is that the US people are being enslaved into molding and programmed thoughts of doing all the wrong, WHEN the ignition of Bush way of conducts transfers their behavior of doing such BUSH STYLE, AS OBAMA WOULD DO THE SAME.
In the examples of doing drones lacking real evidences, facts and clues, going after cases as such , by breaking International regulations, to do whatever evil , wrong and bad in order to make others not to accept Snowden for asylum, this is very bad.

US since then from Bush period onward is no free world communities leader, but an International outlaw and violator by dismantling and ripping down its liberty value and freedom privacy rights for its people.

US is known today as the global obstruction violator in most everything, as its people have been burnt by not knowing what rules and laws are by carrying the wrongdoer Bush radicalism thoughts to breach anything.

Bush is not the model of activities based on reasons and stability of occurrence but tells any laws and regulations can be breached.

HOW CAN THE WORLD GO ON With NO UNIVERSAL RULING OF LAW AND REGULATIONS AND INTERNATIONAL LAWS?

While people coming from US are still not aware of what all these are as rules, unlawfulness, wrongdoing, where they have lots of laws schools, how can the world people make existence with no rules?

US IS NO LONGER AS IT USED TO BE, AND IS A WRONGDOER AND VIOLATOR IN THIS CENTURY AND NOT A MODEL AND LEADER AT ALL.

Points which you never manage to refute, either.

Interesting.

Of course-- going "full throttle" is about the **only** way to get past the concrete-for-brains you Genuine Christholes™ have erected...

It makes you think-- much later, when you're not so mad, of course.

You Christians have the old testament as a part of your holy book, yet you get upset when we atheists point out the cruelty that exist in it. The truth is taht you are fake religious people. You pick an d choose what you want to follow based on convenience, not faith.
But that is okay. The New Testament is horrible in it's own right.

Ow- that hurts soooo bad...lol. Athiests pick and choose as well, friend. It isn't based on convenience- more like we (as do you) make a choice based on our beliefs and our values. DO recall that the Bible as it was originally written has been edited by (most notably) King James among others? Each branch adds or subtracts Books as appeals to and supports their core values. I have no doubt that the author of every word in both Books wrote their contributions based on their interpretation of their own Devine inspiration, but I will promise you I'll never pick up a rattlesnake just to prove my faith, simply because someone thought that a good idea.

If you could prove the god you're lying to us about, you would not need to lie at all.

As usual creationists have lots to say about atheists but no proof that their cult has any merit whatsoever.

When you are smart enough to look up and grasp the meaning of the word "brave", please tell me how it applies in this particular case. I have already determined you aren't smart enough to do so on your own, so find a child to help you.

It looks like you at least admit that the bible is just a book written by man and in mans thoughts.
