"And finally we were also the first to point the people on any large scale to a danger which insinuated itself into our midst - a danger which millions failed to realize and which will nonetheless lead us all into ruin - the Jewish danger. And today people are saying yet again that we were 'agitators.' "I would like here to appeal to a greater than I, Count Lerchenfeld. He said in the last session of the Landtag that his feeling 'as a man and a Christian' prevented him from being an anti-Semite. I SAY: MY FEELING AS A CHRISTIAN POINTS ME TO MY LORD AND SAVIOUR AS A FIGHTER. IT POINTS ME TO THE MAN WHO ONCE IN LONELINESS, SURROUNDED ONLY BY A FEW FOLLOWERS, RECOGNIZED THESE JEWS FOR WHAT THEY WERE AND SUMMONED MEN TO THE FIGHT AGAINST THEM AND WHO, GOD'S TRUTH! WAS GREATEST NOT AS SUFFERER BUT AS FIGHTER. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and of adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before - the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice. And as a man I have the duty to see to it that human society does not suffer the same catastrophic collapse as did the civilization of the ancient world some two thousand years ago - a civilization which was driven to its ruin through this same Jewish people.

The true EVIL is religion.
It may not move mountains but it sure can move skycrapers.
http://www.vaticancrimes.us/2010/04/catholic-...
“One must state it plainly. Religion comes from the period of human prehistory where nobody—not even the mighty Democritus who concluded that all matter was made from atoms—had the smallest idea what was going on.
It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge (as well as for comfort, reassurance and other infantile needs).
Today the least educated of my children knows much more about the natural order than any of the founders of religion, and one would like to think—though the connection is not a fully demonstrable one—that this is why they seem so uninterested in sending fellow humans to hell.

Does a logical thought ever cross that brain of yours?

With over 1200 Christian organizations, the USA has a greater number of Jesus fan clubs than any other country in the world. The proliferation of variegated brands of Christianity in America is so extreme that it acquires a comic dimension. One might discern only a subtle difference in name between, say, the "Evangelical Congregational Church" and the "Evangelical Covenant Church", or the "Church of God in Christ" and "Church of Christ" but miss a gulf of doctrinal distinction.

But then, who is bothered about doctrine anyway? Denominations, a source of so much anguish and bloodshed in the past, have diminishing importance in the era of evangelical psychosis, mega-churches and apocalyptic blockbusters. The important thing is to "have religion". "With religion" you are a patriot, defending the American way of life; without religion you are a subversive radical, an enemy.

Christianity USA is all show business and emotional razzmatazz. Organised as international corporations, with a globalised "mission" of subsidiary offices, its product is propaganda, pouring in prodigious quantity from a network of TV and radio stations and publishing houses. The intent is to draw further millions into the mass of devotees.

In choreographed extravaganzas Pastor whips up mindless love of Jesus and serious fund raising, and then retreats to his opulent sanctuary, content in knowing that he is a tireless servant of the Lord.

Collecting Cash for God!

"So what did God do? He GAVE the very thing He needed – His only begotten Son, the best gift heaven could give! What did God receive? Yes, we know – billions of sons and daughters! God lives by His own law – you GIVE if you expect to RECEIVE!"

You are not my problem, I have no problem with what you do, that is up to you. I am not telling you what to do, so why are "preaching to me lol". I am worried about passing the 16 trillion dollars debt to my kids and future grandkids, and everything the last four years of the housing market, unemployment, failed green agenda, jobs not so shovel ready stimulus, repealing obamacare, etc. than what religion someone is or is not. The mormon question is here for one purpose, can see where you are heading with this one, you are a obama drone correct? Who cares what you believe or not... take a hike pal.

Here is a party that I cannot vote for, look at what the last four years record of Obama, just a name a few... Unemployment 23 million, over 50 percent of college grads can't find work with their degrees, the new welfare work requirements consists of personal journaling and the like, over a trillion dollars spent on a not so shovel ready jobs package, our homes values down 38 percent, cash for clunkers, bailouts, foreclosure overload with more on the way as they are now granting loans to those who can't afford them again, mortgages underwater everywhere, homes not selling, a failed green agenda where they took taxpayers dollars and pretended it is monopoly money, gas prices still over 4 dollars in Chicago, obamacare forced on us all with mandates, new taxes in obamacare, groceries up 30 percent, retail and shipping costs escalated, because of higher gas prices, the fake war on women and I am a woman who cares about unemployment, and they put down stay at home moms and the twitter response broke all records!, they want the woman vote, they will get the women who are married to the government for their support, and of course put y'all back in chains, and You didn't build that. Have you seen the video Nancy Pelosi's daughter made on welfare, check it out, it has obama bucks, four baby mommas, he gives me stuff.. Vote Obama out in November with this record it would be absurd to vote for him!

Why are so hateful and closeminded? Anything I was taught about Jesus, tells me He would very much disapprove of your development. Speak His name, but don't follow his teachings. Beyond ignorance you are. Look within and fix yourself for the sake of humanity.

The bible is an intricate book and the most misunderstood writing of all time.
For one to label this mysterious masterpiece, a book of atrocities and absurdities shows a true lack of intelligence on the part of the reader.
What you are looking at is a book rich in history,scientific fact, prophecy,poetry,song and common sense.God is real, do not mock his wisdom, from whatever vantage point you choose for worship.

This statement is totally laughable.

The Bible contains numerous historical errors, most important Bible events are scientifically impossible, there isn't a single supernatural prophecy to be found, the "poetry" is highly overrated (most of the writing is very bland), and its "common sense" is nonsensical.

But at least you've got some songs. Congrats.

The bible does indeed contain facts.Take for instance the mention of a dog returning to it's own vomit, does that ring a bell?

Although I cannot adopt a belief in imaginary dieties, I do respect those that do- provided they do not impose their religious dogma on me.

Here is an interesting site if you are curious about alleged 'holy books'

http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/

And... I feel like ANY religion is unecessary... WHY?

What needs imporlvement over these ancient texts?

"What is hateful to you, do not to our fellow man. That is entire Law, all the rest is commentary." -- Talmud, Shabbat 31a, from the Judaic tradition, circa 1300 BCE

"That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself." -- Avesta, Dadistan-i-dinik 94:5, from the Zoroastrian tradition, circa 600 BCE

"Hurt not others in ways that you find hurtful." -- Tripitaka, Udanga-varga 5,18 , from the Buddhist tradition, circa 525 BCE

"Surely it is the maxim of loving kindness, do not unto others that which you would not have done unto you." -- Analects, Lun-yu XV,23, from the Confucian tradition, circa 500 BCE

"One should treat all beings as he himself would be treated." -- Agamas, Sutrakrtanga 1.10, 1-3, from the Jain tradition, circa 500 BCE

"Regard your neighbor's gain as your gain and your neighbor's loss as your loss." -- Tai-shang Kang-ying P'ien, from the Taoist tradition, circa 500 BCE

Many religions now come before us with ingratiating smirks and outspread hands, like an unctuous merchant in a bazaar.

They offer consolation and solidarity and uplift, competing as they do in a marketplace.

But I/WE have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse.

The history of the desert religions(Organized Superstition)is abominable. So much hatred and genocide, all in the 'name of' some imaginary diet.

NO THANKS - I prefer reality
