I'm 47 years old, a nominal Catholic, you're not going to change my mind and I have no desire to change yours. Get it?
That's just life... that's why Mommy told us not to talk about politics and religion at the dinner table. If this were a real dinner table you'd be able to see the glazed over eyes!
My problem with this (IMO, worst conceived thread on OCMB in a long time) has solely been:
1. Dancing on a man's grave (who may be respected and even loved by many on this message board), and...
2. criticizing and slamming politics or religion that have little or nothing to do with the consumer fraud that is Scientology. This can only
divide critics and give ammunition to opponents of the critical/activist community. The minute you start dissecting mainstream or even marginally mainstream religions you've just offended and made opponents out of about 1/2 the people on the MB. Rude and stupid, IMNHO.
And this thread perfectly illustrates my last point: it's gotten so bad that one of your ilk has been threatening violence and you just blithely ignore it while droning on with your pedantic "religious views."
TheDarksideOfScientology’s Fundamentalist Atheism, the Talibanistic, bigoted and hate-filled barrages from him have been the most insulting and inappropriate things I’ve seen on this board for quite some time.
Maybe thickheaded Christians, such as yourself, should stop trying to convert Atheists. You ask why Atheists get angry? Because Christians don't get a fucking clue and live and let live. If you're an Atheist and refuse "God", most of you Christians tell us we're going to hell. We get tired of hearing your same old bullshit lines, that's why we get angry.
I have fucking Christians knocking on my door atleast twice a month, recruiting for the 30 churches in my neighborhood. I tell them I'm an Atheist any NORMAL person would say thank you and leave? But do the Christians...no. Instead they choose to try and convert me, since I'm a heathen and all.
You can't even debate with most Christians, being they aren't all there... mentally. Their only proof of anything, is the Bible, which is proof of nothing. You get offended when compared to Scientology, but come on, there's no difference. Christianity is probably worse, in most non-religious people's opinion.
Atheists wouldn't give a flying fuck if you worshipped a pink unicorn, if you didn't bother them with your nonsense. Instead, Christians are constantly saying how unethical and immoral Atheists are. I have something to tell you Christians, look in the fucking mirror, you're the ones overcrowding the U.S. prisons.
So go on believing in a "God" you can't prove exists, while you're at it, you might as well worship Santa Clause, Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy while you're at it. Since their existence is a believable. And for all you Christians that put up a Christmas tree, don't you know that's a Pagan ritual and is strictly forbidden by your Bible, so stop being fucking hypocrites.
Jeremiah 10:3-6 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.
Stupid fucking twits.
