We Christians and you atheists can play the "how much damage have our respective belief-systems done" game if you want. With all the atrocities committed by secular Commie regimes I think you might fall a little behind though :)

Atheism is a lack of religion, right? If this is true, then hatred of religion also counts as atheism. The Soviets persecuted religious people just for being religious, and thus it is proven that some crazy people have in fact killed in the name of atheism.

To be fair, this comic strip does a very poor job of understanding what Christianity actually is.

Anti Theism or Militant Atheism is hatred for theism. Not simple atheism. I've met atheists that have no problem with religion.

Soviets persecuted religious people because their politics didn't match. Not because of their religion. Stalin wanted to be the main focus of Russia. Stalin has never once killed in the name of atheism. There was a man who killed a church going man in the name of atheism, but that is one instance compared to thousands. Women killed their own baby children because they believed God told them to. Religion can be used as an excuse, atheism does not since atheism is no excuse. It's a null position, not religion.

Btw, here's one of these atheists that have no problems with religious people.

I answered mine to help me with life and that it inspires me to help people, even though my parents will say "You need to help poor people who need help and not just be lazy." So I keep it to myself, but whenever I speak about it, I will only address it when it's NEEDED. If somebody is going through a tough time, I will not bring it up unless they ask me.

Christianity is only an illusion that will end when this age ends, which is very soon now. Didn't you know that God had His prophet Daniel write about this false religion that would be destroyed without human hands?

No, atheism is lack of belief in a god. Lack of religion is just that. There are theists who hate religion.

I didn't say that all atheists are anti-theists. Most religious people don't desire to burn witches at stakes, and most atheists don't want to kill religious people.
But, the point I was trying to make is that some more radical atheists did fact go around killing people in the name of irreligion.
By the way, please clarify how the Soviets killed Christians because "their politics didn't match."

Millions of God's people were killed because they didn't accept the false deities ( imaginary gods ) of Christianity. In fact, Christians are still going abroad to kill anyone who doesn't accept their business models and false gods ( churches built with human hands ).

Stalin was a communist. Atheism was one small part of it. Communism was like anarchism. It stated everything belonged to everybody. This would mean anything the churches or mosques had would have to be shared by even the government. I doubt a church would do that. So Lenin did say that religion would be an obstacle for the communist government. So Stalin became a fascist and destroyed the churches not for the purpose of communism, but for the fact that he was an ego maniac who made himself a God. He even had a statue of himself made. You can look at communists or others who will argue that the communist leaders like Stalin and Pol Pot did not form a true communist nation.

Christians killing non-Christians is quite rare today. Perhaps the Anti-Balaka militias in Africa and a few Christian Identity members in America, but overall it's very rare.

I have my doubts that they killed the Christians just because they wouldn't share their church buildings. Take note that even House Churches were targeted.

Social media keeps them secretly killing others for their domain. If you believe our government and the way they operate throughout the world, then you're greatly deceived of the Truth.

Atheism is a lack of religion, right? If this is true, then hatred of religion also counts as atheism. The Soviets persecuted religious people just for being religious, and thus it is proven that some crazy people have in fact killed in the name of atheism.

Anti Theism or Militant Atheism is hatred for theism. Not simple atheism. I've met atheists that have no problem with religion.

Soviets persecuted religious people because their politics didn't match. Not because of their religion. Stalin wanted to be the main focus of Russia. Stalin has never once killed in the name of atheism. There was a man who killed a church going man in the name of atheism, but that is one instance compared to thousands. Women killed their own baby children because they believed God told them to. Religion can be used as an excuse, atheism does not since atheism is no excuse. It's a null position, not religion.

Btw, here's one of these atheists that have no problems with religious people.



I didn't say that all atheists are anti-theists. Most religious people don't desire to burn witches at stakes, and most atheists don't want to kill religious people.
But, the point I was trying to make is that some more radical atheists did fact go around killing people in the name of irreligion.
By the way, please clarify how the Soviets killed Christians because "their politics didn't match."

Millions of God's people were killed because they didn't accept the false deities ( imaginary gods ) of Christianity. In fact, Christians are still going abroad to kill anyone who doesn't accept their business models and false gods ( churches built with human hands ).

Christians killing non-Christians is quite rare today. Perhaps the Anti-Balaka militias in Africa and a few Christian Identity members in America, but overall it's very rare.

Social media keeps them secretly killing others for their domain. If you believe our government and the way they operate throughout the world, then you're greatly deceived of the Truth.

So you are saying that Christians are secretly killing people without anyone's knowledge?

It's difficult for Christians to freely kill in the name of their Jesus today but they use the government's help to get their business ventures and churches built wherever they want. Christianity is NOT what us saints started 2,000 years ago. It's a pagan religion that was formed by antichrists and false prophets who were stealing the words from the true saints and mixing them with their pagan religious ideas they got from God's plan called the beast.

Right, because this https://en.wikipedia.org...(1928%E2%80%9341) wasn't done in the name of atheism.

What supposed atheist principle were they following, exactly? There are direct commands in the big three religious texts that call for the spreading of their beliefs and, in some circumstances, the punishing of the unfaithful. What's the atheist analog? What founding document of atheism was Stalin pointing to and declaring as his authority for his actions?

Well there's such a thing as militant atheism, you know https://en.wikipedia.org....

Possibly none, who knows.

I don't like playing the head-count game though, because it's a red herring. Just because a philosophy causes bad things to happen doesn't, obviously, invalidate that belief system.

Well, considering that Christians comprise of more than 70% of the United States population, I wouldn't say that there's a disproportionate number of churches.
As for churches being built "wherever they want", it's called buying property and building a church. I don't think that the Government directly pays for the construction of churches, though I could be wrong.

It's obvious you're going to defend Christianity instead of our Creator who created the beast to teach His people how to build things ( false gods ) to use as analogies to teach me the invisible creation of His.

Yes, but these people do not represent atheists, just as the bloodpriests of Kali don't represent hinduism.
It would be nice not to have to put down people just because they're different.

Stalin was a communist. Atheism was one small part of it. Communism was like anarchism. It stated everything belonged to everybody. This would mean anything the churches or mosques had would have to be shared by even the government. I doubt a church would do that. So Lenin did say that religion would be an obstacle for the communist government. So Stalin became a fascist and destroyed the churches not for the purpose of communism, but for the fact that he was an ego maniac who made himself a God. He even had a statue of himself made. You can look at communists or others who will argue that the communist leaders like Stalin and Pol Pot did not form a true communist nation.

My opinion on Communism: The SYSTEM is perfect. It's PEOPLE who f*ck it up.
It would be nice not to have to put down people just because they're different.
