I read your article "Why Bother" and I have to ask....
why bother? What
is your goal in pointing out loop holes in the faith? "Any
their views makes them angry" guess what, criticism of
any kind will
make someone angry. When you go up to a girl and crticise
do you expect a logical answer like: "yeah you're right,
I should get
into shape more". Do you ever go into Buddha channels
channels or anything else? Why the fascination with Christianity?
Fair enough. Why bother with Christianity? Easy,
for the most part, you do not see
any other religion going about getting their religion made
the norm for EVERYONE.
Christians lobby to get their belief taught in schools, they
cry about anything non-christian,
go on campaigns to get things like heavy metal music banned,
Harry Potter banned, they
teach people that certain things and people are just plain
"wrong" and are doomed to hell.
Freedom of speech and freedom of thought is anathema to the
religion, intelligence is not
viewed in high regard in this religion. Anything that makes
a person think, or doubt the belief
is bad, and a thing of Satan used to get them to back slide.
The morals taught in their bible is
nothing special at all, and was taught many centuries before
the bible. The only new thing jesus
added to anything was the eternal hell punishment.
As far as Buddhist rooms, and the Judaism rooms go; I have
been in there, and when I do go on there,
I always see a christian in there telling them about how wrong
they are, and how jesus is the only god there is. After a
bit. they start the slander of others, and threaten people
with their version of hellfire. All the conversations I have
had with the Buddhists, have always been calm, rational, and
nice. I have not really talked to the jews, just listened
As for criticism, I can take it, regardless of what the subject
is. I know this is not the norm for all people, but it is
how I am. For the most part, people can take criticism of
almost any form. Save that of their religion. Especially christians,
since any form of criticism is viewed as a personal attack,
and an attack against their "truth". They almost
always revert to some silly phrase when they meet criticism
that they cannot answer. If one sticks in the christian chat
rooms for any length of time, you will hear at least 20 in
