A laughing matter

It’s completely ridiculous when a christian criticizes islam, of course. That cracks me up every time.

They keep pointing at islam as the worst belief system in the world, but that just isn’t so. That honor goes to christianity itself and its more or less insane proponents.

I dislike all religion. I am convinced it is inherently bad, that it is a pox on mankind, but christianity takes the prize. There is no competition, really. No matter how many times christians make the claim that islam has the worst zealots it doesn’t ring true. It’s just more of the same of the general deceit they are so good at.

A few examples of beyond insane christian zealots:

We have the Lord’s Resistance Army in Central Africa. They work from Uganda and several other countries, raping and killing children wholesale and making the rest into soldiers. We have the people blowing up United States’ abortion clinics, killing and terrorizing people working there. There is the general treatment of everybody they don’t see as part of «God’s plan», among them homosexuals and atheists. We have the countless past and present genocide of various primitive tribes by missionaries and their henchmen.

Then we have perhaps the very worst: What goes on in daily, regular life, how they set out to destroy children, all children, including their own, by doing their best to hammer into them christian narrow perception of «morality». It’s pretty much a pervasive, organized insanity beating any other in human history. Identifying oneself as a christian is pretty much on par by admitting to be a part of any of the worst cults in existence.

In other words: Yes, every single christian is responsible for all its atrocities. Its crimes are so pervasive and prevailing and so well known that guilt by association is valid in this case.

Christianity does nothing good to anybody, and it would serve mankind great if all shreds of it vanished from the face of the Earth.

So if all Christians are responsible for every atrocity committed by a different Christian, no matter his/her personal views on the matter or how completely not involved he/she is, does that mean that all atheists are responsible for every atrocity committed by a different atheist?

No, since atheism isn't a singular belief, but a wide variety of it.

And, as stated the crimes and horrors of christianity are so pervasive and widespread that there is no hiding behind the "we didn't know" pretext.

There may be (and are( a few atheists participating in similar horrors, but that isn't atheism, but individuals.

A truth EASILY discerned.

I agree that its ridiculous when Christians criticize Islam, and you could extend that to Jews and Hindus who criticize Islam. But I disagree that religion is the cause of most of the violence. Its greed for natural resources and power that cause most of our problems. And greed exits in atheists and the religious. The Congo is the country with the most killings and rapes. The violence is fueled by USA, Israel and Europe exploitation of natural resources and their sale of weapons.

But you are ignoring the obvious: that religion is just as bad domestically, in all countries, the direct cause of oppression and violence.

I stand by my words.

You wrote that ;
"I am convinced it is inherently bad, that it is a pox on mankind, but christianity takes the prize. There is no competition, really."

Can you be serious ?
Islam certainly does give Christianity competition for being the worse religion . . .
Any sort of moral transgression you would like to list for Christianity I could cite equally violent of offensive acts listed in the texts, to actions carried out in the name of Islam -
Including Slavery - while the Europeans & Americans were justifying slavery in the name of christianity, the Arabs were involved in there very own massive slave trade of Africans, shipping them off to different parts of the caliphate - as human cargo.
Even Europeans and the first Americans were captured and enslaved by the Muslim countries ( located in modern day Tripoli and the Algiers ).
When Thomas Jefferson went to the Ottoman embassy in London to inquire as to what right the Barbary pirates (being backed by their government ) had to enslave these U.S Merchants, the Ottoman diplomat - speaking officially for the Caliphate Empire , only had to quote directly from the Qur'an in order to justify that Muslims had authority from Mohammed to enslave infidels.

Go on to the modern age and in the 21st century - We have BOTH Christian and Muslim interest groups trying to have their religious Authoritative laws being recognized by the Federal and/or State Justice systems.
Both Christianity and Islam call for an Authoritative Theocracy and will not rest until the serious adherents get their religious laws to trump anything reasonable, just and Secular.

Child rape ?
Yes, the Vatican should be liquidated for the epidemic of child sexual abuse - The leaders in this sect suppress the information of their sexual offenders and then transferring these sexual predators to other locations where they have contact and authority over children.
But in Pakistan and Afghanistan, we have the Muslim clerics doing the same thing to small children as what Catholic priests are doing.
There is even a sex-slave trade of small to pubescent boys in Afghanistan, where most people do not know of , because no U.S media circuits will report on such a thing, except for "FrontLine" on PBS.

Womens Rights ?
Both Christianity and Islam are very active in suppressing the voice an role of women in society.
The difference is, that Muslims, waving their Qur'an will throw battery acid into the face of young Afghani girls for wanting to to school.
Women are stoned to death for being raped, in the name of Islam
Women are kept from holding jobs, in the name of Islam
Women cannot legally drive in Saudi Arabia . . .

There is plenty of competition for the title of "worlds worst religion", with perhaps Christianity in the lead - but it is certainly a "photo-finish".

And what about people who disagree with said actions? How can we blame an innocent person for someone else's crime? How is this critical thinking? o_O

Shauny-boy: You're missing the point by making it into a competition. I agree that Islam and virtually any other religion give Christianity a run for its money in cruelty and oppression. But pointing to the obvious: that Christianity is a tad worse, both historically and currently and the irony" of Christians pointing to other religions.

Anonymous: That is seeing beyond propaganda. There are individual Christians disagreeing with PARTS of Christianity, yes, but not with its entirety, its collective, which is the true horror, showing that Christianity is a beyond wicked view on life. Anyone identifying themselves as part of that, as a member of one of the very worst movements in human history is obviously guilty, not only by association, but as an active participant.

I understand that part - the whole community protecting one person thing. I simply cannot blame people such as Martin Luther King Jr. for things Fred Phelps has said and done.

I understand that some people will protect members of their "group", and I do agree with that. However, someone did mention that Stalin (and others like him) did have atheists supporting his agenda. Meanwhile, I hardly believe Martin Luther King Jr. would agree with bombing an abortion clinic. Therefore, I must ask this: Would you blame Martin Luther King Jr. for the hate crimes that white supremacist Christians did against African American Christians?

It's a long established rule of law, actually, at Nurnberg and other places that individuals can be judged as part of a group. Everybody knows or should know that.

MLK is one of the few (they do exist, as stated) with such great qualities that they may not be "judged".

Phelps is a typical Christian in my eyes. Not all are physically abusive, like he is, but they perform mental abuse of everybody, including small children every single day and night and have done so for almost 2000 years. Enough!

Many atheists are way too kind with Christians. I'm not. There just isn't any reason to.

Could you mark your quotes of my words better, please? It might get confusing for the random visitor.
