too often i see non-believers pointing out the stupidity of religion, especially christianity, what with its biblically tall stories of talking donkeys, global floods, humanity descending from only two people, dudes walking on water, raising the dead etc etc etc....
i find this disappointing, because so fucking what if christianity is full of improbable tales? What difference does it make if christianity is an utter joke? Telling christians their religion is stupid is no different to telling someone that "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is stupid. So what if it is? As long as the person gets good things out of it, then so what?
the point of the bible is not in the particulars of its stupid stories anyway, those details describing the stupidity of christianity are irrelevant; the point of the bible and indeed, the point of *christianity* and the point of being a frikking christian in the first place is that everyone is to love one another, without exception.
The whole thing was summed up in the two commandments of Jesus, not the fucking TEN commandments. I know TEN sounds far more frikking impressive than TWO but the two commandments cover the TEN because the second commandment can be regarded as a generic guiding sort of commandment.
That is to say if you apply the "Love thy neighbour as you would have them love you." commandment to the TEN commandments you get things like, "don't steal... if you don't want people to steal from you", "don't lie... if you don't want to be lied to" and so on, "don't covet someone's stuff... if you don't want them to covet your stuff" etc etc etc...
So instead of berating christians for believing in something that has stupid stories as part of its overall "philosophy", berate them for *not* actually following the point of what those fucking stories in this bible of theirs were allegedly supposed to teach them!
Show me one person who actually does love everyone.
Go on. Here is a list of things to help you decide what excludes you from loving *everyone*.
** If you own a gun with the intention of defending yourself, then you do not love everyone because you are willing to *shoot* and possibly *kill* a person in order to defend yourself. That's not loving everyone therefore you are not a christian.
** If you support war; the death penalty; assassinations; torture; They aren't examples of loving everyone therefore you are not christian.
** If you are racist, bigoted, misogynistic, rude, mean, bullish, cruel, then you can hardly claim to love everyone and therefore you are not christian.
** If someone rapes your child and you hit that person, then you do not love that rapist. You do not love *everyone* and therefore you are NOT christian.
** If someone slaughters your whole family, would you hate them or love them for it?
See what I mean? How can anybody love every single person in this world without exception?
And *yes*, this is what Jesus taught. The prime example of this was when he was being tortured and was then crucified. He was supposedly the son of god and if we allow for the story told as told by the narrative of the bible to be true, he gave proof of this by performing all those charitable miracles like healing the sick, feeding the poor etc; In other words: Jesus could have stopped his torment at any time but he chose to NOT fight back because to fight back would involve hurting someone and hurting someone, anyone at all, is NOT loving everyone.
That is the point of christianity. Do no harm and love everyone, no matter what the fuck they do to you or the people you love, even if they try to kill you or the people you love.
"Forgive them father, for they know not what they do" ... that is what somebody purporting to be christian should say whenever they are being persecuted or hurt or killed.
Them's the rules. What's that? You don't like them? Then stop fucking pretending to be a christian.
It's that fucking simple.
The first three hundred years of christianity is littered with stories of martyrs who were actually following Jesus' teachings. There are stories of people with gouged out eyes, deliberately amputated hands, stonings, burnings at the stake, crucifixions etc etc etc. Look up the "Age Of Martyrs" if you want more details, I won't bore you with historical fact.
But no-one follows the rules as set down by Jesus these days because he set the bar so fucking high that the vast majority of present day christians don't even realise that they are nowhere near to adhering to the point of JC's alleged teachings ...
The point here is that christians don't care about the fucking bullshit stories in their bible because they don't even care to follow the fucking "love everyone" point/commandment of their precious christianity either - and I don't have a problem with that, everyone has the right to defend themselves, but christians are openly contradicting their Messiah and that is a fucking lie and if you walk around telling lies, then you are a piece of shit lying cunt.
Sorry, but that's what you are, don't want to be regarded as a liar? then either throw away this christianity that you aren't actually following anyway or shut that flap-trap of yours that keeps bragging that you are christian or - heaven forbid! - you actually start following Jesus' teachings to the letter.
It's that fucking simple.
They are the *only* three options christians and yes, I don't give a flying fuck if you call yourself christian and don't brag or even mention anything about it, that's fine by me.
So my message to atheists is to tell christians to stop being such liars by telling them to stop this bullshit farce of pretending to be christian because the vast majority of christians are not anywhere near the ballpark of actually following their precious Messiah, not by a long shot and if atheists can't do this, then these religious and anti-religious "crusades" they find themselves in will drag on for centuries.
Mark my words, the only reason christianity isn't dead already is because atheists are being too tolerant of christians and their inherent inability to follow their own precious religion.
