2nd July 2013

“Most self-designated Christians seem to have found ways to spin the doctrine that allows them to be as belligerent, violent, intolerant, and murderous as Herod himself. In my personal experience (and I was raised Christian) it's easier to find an atheist practicing the teachings of Jesus than a Christian.”

    There’s a big disconnect between the actual alleged teachings of the alleged jesus and what christians tend to think of as those teachings. As an atheist I would hate to be associated with the actual alleged teachings which were quite nasty as well as insane.

    Amen to that.

    I have found that any discussion regarding religion and the alleged religious christian friends I have ends up in my disappointment at the lack of intellect applied to the thought process surrounding this subject. Then they will pray for me to become as ignorant and “joyful” as they are.

    The only thing that I find more annoying than a “Christian” trying to tell me the teachings of Christ, is a “Christian” lawyer trying to tell me the meaning of “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”, while reading it as “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of ‘A’ religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” which is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

    So far, SCOTUS can’t tell the difference either.

    Unfortunately the vast majority of Christians are beyond ignorant concerning Jesus as well as the Bible itself… Heck, the mainstream gospels differ enough among themselves to make any open-minded person have second thoughts about Jesus. I came to my beliefs from years of thinking and reading… that includes reading things I don’t agree with. To me it comes down to many believers are really just lazy and take the easy answers they already agree with.
