Comment Re:Another example (Score 1) 728

So, you're saying that because some atheists have done bad things, one shouldn't condemn people who murder in the name of religion? Or we shouldn't point out religious fanaticism is a bad idea?

I am a religious fanatic who teaches my children that killing in the name of religion or even trying to straighten people out in the name of religion is wrong. I teach them about Nagasaki and Hiroshima and other horrific killings of the twentieth century and other centuries. I teach them this is unequivocally wrong. I teach them that Christ wants us to abstain from all violence and anger, and that he wants us to be fanatical about it.

I wish people were actually fanatical about what God actually said. Like Thou shalt not kill.

This is just another thinly veiled attack on Christianity and other religions. As a Christian I find this offensive, but I expect no one cares since I'm also a white male.

I went and looked at your posting history and saw you calling people fools and calling for people to be killed with nuclear attacks. As a Christian, this is distressing and offensive to me. Our Lord said "whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. ".

As a corollary of this while anyone can consider something to be offensive, NO ONE should have the right to demand that other people do not offend them. As a christian you ought be particulary willing to defend this freedom; particularly given the persecution those of your religion face in some parts of the world.

For the record, I am a fundamentalist Christian, and I agree.
