“The folkish-minded man, in particular, has the sacred duty, each in his own denomination, of making people stop just talking superficially of God's will, and actually fulfil God's will, and not let God's word be desecrated. For God's will gave men their form, their essence and their abilities. Anyone who destroys His work is declaring war on the Lord's creation, the divine will.”

    a nicely insane statement from one of

    the great lunatics in recent history.

    claim him with pride, religionistas.

    Good people, I give you Adopf Hitler, model Catholic in good standing.

    I have already declared war on the Lord’s divine will. I’m armed with books and a “desire” to learn. I regularly speak superficially of God’s will.

    I’m not a fan of this type of rhetoric. I find it silly to demonize a worldview simply because a lunatic held it. While I do find Christianity (especially Catholicism) disgusting in every way, using this type of argument is, in a way, sinking to their level. The institution’s policies and doctrines are evidence enough of how evil and destructive it is. To base these claims on the whims of a madman, however, builds a very shaky argument; an argument we atheists have all had to blow down before (Soviet Union, China, North Korea).

    Mikel,

    Ah he isn’t the only religious madman, just one of the more popular.

    Religious madmen fill every nook and crannie of history. Maybe you find it tiresome to see Adolph being the example all the time but the worldview demonizes itself daily with one nutbag after another.

    Talking about “one of these/a particular” religious madmen isn’t demonizing a worldview. The madmen did that and people aren’t going to forget that. Religious madmen will be talked about.

    As for sinking to their level I don’t think, given the treatment of atheists throughout history by religious madmen, that athiests will ever possess that capacity.
