I guess you were just pointing out that I was using irony. (?)

If so, nevermind.

Pathetic. You find one video of an arrogant atheist for what? There are people like that in every religion. I could find one for Christianity if I wanted to. Not that hard. Grow the **** up already.

A. Not Richard Dawkins

B. A minority of atheists behave like that.

C. Atheists don't believe in going out to set people free from religion. They just don't believe in a God.

How about this guy, who tells everyone who isn't a Christian to "get out" of America?

Typical Christian again?

Which of these two Christian are typical?

If you are able to see the nuance between the two in this video, then you should wake up to the reality that there are no "typical" anything except for in your own mind.

Those strawmen may burn well, but they offer you no insight, and they lessen your grasp on reality.

Yes, we have the occasional nutbag that agrees with us (on the question of gawd), as well. With how many Westboro Baptist church videos do you think I can answer this one lunatic off his meds?

Would you like to see some Hitler videos?
How about a pope that swept church pedophilia under the rug and protected molesters?
This was cute, gentoo. However, there is absolutely nothing "average" about him, and you know it. You, however, are a typically disingenuous and dishonest biblebabblewoowoo propaganda artist... Let me see what I can go dig up, as far as embarrassing religitard videos...

If this were anything close to typical, no one would have bothered to upload it, or comment on it. It gets attention because it's so totally atypical. You don't see random videos of Christians knocking on doors and passing out pamphlets, because it's too typical to be considered worthy of note.

I was attempting to use irony. But it failed.

No big deal.

We all know that most "religions", including many so-called "Christian" sects, are scams. Christians know it better than atheists. I defy anyone to take a NT in hand and find any hint of a financial scam or business venture. It's just not there.

It is a matter of fact in this county that if an orphan child is placed in an orphanage at all, he is placed in one owned an operated (and largely funded) by the churches of Christ of this county. It is a matter of record that if someone is at the end of his/her rope and obtains food from a "public food dispensing service" or "food pantry", he will get it from ... where? .... the four or five food pantries operated by various churches. Ditto for clothes. Who is it that provides fans and a/c's during the summer? Who is it that helps folks with their electric bills?

Do you want us to judge atheism in general (or Muslims or Buddhists or anything) by elevating the shysters among them to the position of "the norm"? If so, we'll compare Roosevelt and Churchill to .... Stalin and Hitler.

Oh, look... Another post from the all-wise "true" christian. ONLY NT christians know how we are all supposed to believe, behave, and understand. Yes, anna... We've heard it all, before. Only NT christians are qualified to distinguish "real" christians from "fake" christians, and "real" christians are not subject to the identification with the remainder of christianity. We get it. We reject it. Same response as before: christianity is christianity, and the differences in doctrine are unimportant, when weighed against the commonalities.
To prove the point you're making, here, the jeebus actually overturned the tables of the merchants selling sacrificial animals in the temple, right? So what? The temple, itself, was still a fraudulent religion...

It is a matter of fact in this county that if an orphan child is placed in an orphanage at all, he is placed in one owned an operated (and largely funded) by the churches of Christ of this county. It is a matter of record that if someone is at the end of his/her rope and obtains food from a "public food dispensing service" or "food pantry", he will get it from ... where? .... the four or five food pantries operated by various churches. Ditto for clothes. Who is it that provides fans and a/c's during the summer? Who is it that helps folks with their electric bills?

Where an orphan is placed does zero to validate an ignorant belief system. The christian beliefs are still ridiculous. That our politicians are stupid enough to trust a church, because it's a church, does nothing to validate the truth of that church's beliefs.
Goodwill - a christian organization - still profits from free donations and reduced labor. A LOT of charitable organizations provide for those less fortunate. Further, there would likely be MORE charity and philanthropy from others, if they were to begin enjoying the same tax-free luxury that churches enjoy, wouldn't you think? The long and the short of it is that all religions/churches are scams, in one form or another. Period.

I wanted to reply to your last part, individually... I can see why you would try to bring in Stalin, but why Hitler? Hitler was a catholic (christian). His birthday was celebrated by papal mandate, at the vatican. He had formal pacts and agreements with the catholic church. And "christians" on BOTH sides of the war "blessed" both troops and weapons. At this point, I will remind you that you forgot to include Pol Pott... Still, your idiotic attempt to blame atheism for the behavior of these people fails, because atheism is not a philosophy. Religion is. Stalin imposing his will on people was his tyranny, not the result of atheism. Catholics actually used religion and faith in their support of hitler. Religion is a personal motivator. Atheism is not. Atheism is one, singular rejection of a belief. Religion is a way of life. It was a sad, tired, over-used and ever refuted point of stupidity that religitards have used for decades: Put hitler in the atheist camp (straw dummy) and rail against atheism because of it. By your own attempted standard, you have actually succeeded only in condemning religion. Well done.

I think it is important to point out that Totalitarianism was the driving force behind Stalin, not atheism.

Also, as stated before, Hitler was catholic-christian. No sense in denying it.
