Wow - can they get any more ridiculous! Where is the lawsuit in Michigan protesting allowing the Muslim Call to Prayer to be played over a loudspeaker which will be heard for at least several blocks? Apparently, their atheist sensibilities are only offended if it's something Christians or Jews are doing.

The reason they attack Christians is we rarely decapitate those who attack us, lol

Secular ethics and morality forced your religion to stop torturing and killing heretics centuries ago. Your religion was once every bit as bad as Muslim fundamentalists are now.

We are all human. Only Jesus was perfect. Many have done evil in God's name and many have and still do quote His word without understanding.

Factually many times the amount killed by Christians were and still are killed my Muslims. Many times that have been killed by Athiests.

So when comparing levels of good/bad, I think the ones done by athiests 'win'.

Using a better scale, how many hospitals, schools, soup kitchens, shelters, charities (of all sorts) have been created by Muslims? Athiests? Gee, want to keep comparing?

You know, McCargar, you don't know scrap about Christianity. You do make a few valid points about it's abuse over the centuries, but you judge God and Jesus Christ by the abuses of Christianity, not as a result of any knowledge you actually have on the subject of Christianity in it's pristine form. You are like a child ranting about the evils of marriage because your mommy and daddy got a divorce. The problem in such a case is mommy, or daddy, or both. It is NOT marriage. Nor do the evils done in the name of Christ have anything at all to do with Christ. "False Christians" don't make Christ or God evil or false. Your "philosophical" point of view is based on thinking about half as deep as a bottle cap.

By percentage of extant population, Christians are the worst mass murderers.

"Moral" means having good reasons for you you do. Christianity is based on faith, defined as belief without reason.

Ergo, by definition, Christianity is immoral.

Open and Shut.

"Deal with it"

"Moral" means having good reasons for what you think or do.

As Christianity is a faith, by definition a belief without reason, is it automatically immoral.

Case. Closed.

"Deal with it" Have the courage of your baseless convictions, and admit they are baseless, or show the brains to stop trying to defend the indefensible. The "another arrogant jerk for Jesus" schtick just makes you sound stupid.

Actually, some psychologists think the evils of marriage are due to the nature of marriage.

Try a less clumsy metaphor next time.

Why are you afraid Tommy...you afraid that your nonbelief will lead to everlasting damnation and you are seeking comfort in numbers to justify your pitiful existence? Thought so.

The atheists I grew up with in Texas were a tad bit pluckier than today’s lardy hagfish atheists who file lawsuits every winter when they see a child wrapped in swaddling clothes.

Yep, the anti-theists I used to hang out with in the Lone Star state were rugged individualists who were so busy milking this existence that they didn’t have time to bleat like a stuck sheep because a plastic baby Jesus statue endangered their delicate beliefs.

My other non-believing buddies who weren’t the robust Hemingway types were usually heady stoners who were into physics, Pink Floyd and Frisbee and were...
