Religious people bother me greatly. How did they become so blinkered? Were they abused as children? Adults? What's missing in their lives etc etc etc...
I really don't get it.
This is the reason most theist try to teach what we are on about.
As a JW I would be happy if a person after studying what the bible really teaches told me , you know what I have studied what the bible really teaches and I could not be bothered .
I would leave that person alone but I cannot let the misinterpertations go and I will keep correcting those.
A book, written by men, not 'God', long after the events (if they ever happened), adjusted through the ages, but yet taken as the word of God??
Please tell me. Words of the bible aside. Don't you ever wonder where the words came from? Do you really think they were written or dictated by God? Is this not wishful thinking? Do you not question the books and passages added by the RC church?
Help me out here mate, ffs. You all seem so gullible I want to sell you the Eiffel Tower for a once off never to be repeated price. Honest guv'nor.
Christianity can lead people to bomb abortion clinics. Sounds like that can also qualify as harmful depending on your perspective.
If we were to hold your view that dearly held beliefs shouldn't be mocked then we can't say anything nasty about this abortionists beliefs because they are his dearly held beliefs. This doesn't make sense buddy. Not in the slightest.
If I see a belief or practice as destructive or potentially destructive then fsck the sensibilities of those that believe it is something awesome I am going to say something. Just as you say something about Scientology.
Sorry mate but you are going to battle to emerge from this discussion without looking like a hypocrite aeguing that you can make fun of other people's dearly held beliefs but people can't make fun of yours.

The box said "requires Windows7 or better" so I installed Linux.
