4th August 2011

“Not only have the 'followers of Christ' made it their rule to hack to bits all those who do not accept their beliefs, they have also ferociously massacred each other, in the name of their common 'religion of love,' under banners proclaiming their faith in Him who had expressly commanded them to love one another.”

Georges Clemenceau1841 – 1929

    this stuff just gets better and better !!!!!

    the religionistas ARE HILARIOUS !!!

    Christ’s ‘followers’ largely ignore his teachings especially as regards forgiveness, acceptance, love and compassion. They blow it all off. And for transparently selfish reasons they say all that’s required is belief, not works. Well, I’ve never in my life met a person that actually BEHAVED as though they truly BELIEVED. They say they do, sure. But wouldn’t your behavior be much different if you did?

    Well you don’t have to be religious to be an intolerant, ignorant, misogynistic, racist homophobe, but if you are, it helps.

    The quote.
    Ahhhh….
    Just accusations

  5. Atheist MC Says:

    Accusations with quite a lot of bloody history behind them

    Not accusations, History! Anyone who hasn’t heard of witch trials, the crusades, the inquisitions or the colonial christianization of natives is woefully ignorant. Sure, the Church doesn’t like to talk about it anymore, now that their only weapons are finger wagging, shunning and buggering young boys, but it’s all there, in the history books. In fact, the Roman Catholic Church has the records of the Inquisition. You know, because monsters always keep a record of their atrocities.

    Denying history again Sol?

    Well, at least nowadays Christianity is less like the quote says. Islam however still proudly has a multitude of followers who think it their duty to massacre both non-Muslims and Muslims of another sect. A violent lot they tend to be.

    The bible.
    ahhhh….
    Just myths, superstitions, and absurdities.

  9. Rambler Says:

    St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre is a perfect example of Christians murdering the crap out of other Christians just because they belonged to different sects. Of course this was over 4 centuries ago but it illustrates what can happen when a nation is through and through religious. It also puts to bed that tired old canard that religion makes you a moral person. During much of Europe’s history every person and every nation was explicitly religious. The much vaunted divine morality without which you supposedly cannot be a good person, did not stop all these christians from consistently butchering each other over slight perceived differences.

    And yet theists continue to assert that their bronze age belief is the only true source of morality, proving yet again that theism and willful ignorance are inseparable.

    There’s no denying history on this one. It’s a fact. Christians act very unchristlike.

    Have you heard what Warren Jeffs has been up to? Taping himself having sex with a 12-year-old and making it sound like a holy sacrament. His mind is poisoned with power and theology. The abuse is astounding. You only hear about things like that from psychopaths and their brethren – modern day “prophets”.

  11. solomon Says:

    All accusations blown out of proportion to tarnish or sabotage religion. Those happenings in history are part of life events orchestrated in such a way to accuse the religious lots. Most of the accusations are just lies and could be challenged.

  12. Dan Says:

    No Solly, the “faithful”, both Christianity and Islam have a long history of holding intolerance to be a virtue.

  13. CaptainZero Says:

    Silly – Please give an example of an accusation made against religion that was blown out of proportion in order to tarnish religion.

    I’de rather say….A twisted version of truth.

    The bible, a twisted version of the truth. To put it mildly…
