Anon E. Mouse

The religious right trys to coopt Jesus and claim Him for their own, but they tend to ignore most of what he actually said in doing so.

It's out of MAD magazine. Check your newstand.

They take what they want from the Bible and ignore the rest. The book of James describes how worthless their religion is.

Power Mad Christers . . . . 11.Sep.2004 07:31

Actually, their religion is quite useful . . . . .to power hungry despots who wield Christ like a truncheon.
Like all other religions, Christianity is all about bending minds, instilling fear, stifling creativity and inquiry,
and using the resulting cesspool of ignorance as a breeding place. . . . . for their power base.

They will wish that he does not return! 11.Sep.2004 12:36

When they find out the consequences for their actions!

They will only learn from their own blood.

History has proven this fact.

Sad as it is.

Wow 11.Sep.2004 17:07

I'm surprised

It took three whole comments before one of the crazy "all religion is bad" hard-core athiests posted. Not up to your usual par, people!
Seriously, I think most people put you guys in the same category as the people who stand on the street corner, handing out pamphlets explaining that Christianity is the ONLY religion. Saying that ALL religion is bad sounds just as nuts to me. There is a difference between religion and institutionalized religion, people! A shaman in the mountains of Laos, entering a trance to heal a sick child, is not "all about bending minds, instilling fear, stifling creativity and inquiry,
and using the resulting cesspool of ignorance as a breeding place. . . . . for their power base.". Nor is a Hatian Vodoum ritual of possesion.
You reactonary athiests are just as silly as the fundamentalist christians or fundamentalist mormons or fundamentalist muslims.

democracy is a joke, your opinion is the punch line 12.Sep.2004 02:12

god is dead because we killed him

"I'm suprised", thanks for posting that comment, it was hilarious!! wooooooaah what out for those crazy fundementalist atheists!!! they're always starting wars and trying to preach to you on the street and begging for money on Tv and taking advantage of niave people and having uberpatriotic bumperstickers that say "nothing bless the US" or telling you that you aren't going to hell because it doesn't exist or telling gay people that nothing hates them or distorting old myths to achieve political control or taking sacred herbs for no reason or........some people believe in other ideas than you do"im suprised", if they aren't hurting anyone out side of their internet postings, you should just get over it.

Not a christian or atheist

It may come as a surprise to you, but there are other religions out there that are not christianity (every one of your examples obviously is referring to christians). In fact, there are even religions that are not institutionalized. I know it may damage your american ego, but it's the truth. There are literally thousands of religions in the world, many of them vastly different than the islam/judeo/christian one.

My poor bruised ego where is my, religious, mental anesthetic? 13.Sep.2004 11:05

god is dead because we killed him

Religions exist outside of christianity????? OMG!!! WTF?? ouch my bruised american ego!! Why are you so concerned with the reputation of religion? Am I supposed to think exactly like you? Is my stereo typing of many religious behaviors as nothing more than mind control hurting anyone???? NOPE. Thanks for the enlightenment, lighten up a little, stop preaching to those who do not care. Intolerence works both ways, is yours worse than mine??????






P.S. My examples only pointed out the fallacy of your arguement "You reactonary athiests are just as silly as the fundamentalist christians or fundamentalist mormons or fundamentalist muslims." Atheist see no reason to kill, over what they say is true, don't try and say the contrary.
There was no attempt to say all religion is the same, although it is true. Ooops you're not open minded enough to see this!!!! ouch your bruised ego.
