Couldn't take supposed christian postings on facebook anymore.

My response to all the hate spewed by Christian's in my contact list....

Scholars prove what we have all observed:
Studies suggest that religious dogma can override our natural tendency toward empathy. That's right people who are the most religious have the least empathy to their fellow man. My assumption is that they are literally gleeful because they are equating bad fortune with god's punishment. Says something about exactly how much religion has failed.

1. I left fb after only a few months...I signed onto an Atheist group and started getting..

Christian advertising and then some guy I didn't know wanted to post to me
and when I looked him up he was on a fundied fb page.

Then I started getting Christian dating advertisements. Why would a place like fb
have the exact opposite of who you are seeking you out!?



Tikki..who by-the-way totally agrees with your statement above.

6. Makes Me Wonder About the "Atheist Group" You Signed Up For

Was it set up by Atheists or by Christians looking for Atheists to convert.

7. No, it was a real Atheist group...I heard from others there that a few on fb were trolling the site.

I know fb advertises based on your posts and so I can kind of see how an Atheist site might
bring out a few Christian advertiser, but, this dude was certainly aware of me on the Atheist site
and he was creepy and scary; two things I don't want in my life.

I found other Atheist sites online that don't forward wingnut requests to me.

4. Fundamentalism/dogmatism is, by definition, irrational and not open to other points of view....

5. Don't feel bad. I'm a Christian and some of MY folk on FB are over the top for me too.

I didn't leave though, I take a lot of breaks from it.

Because I can point out how that "dogma" you pointed out is against what Jesus taught and that they are not following God's path any time they are "hating, hurting, abusing anyone in God's name".

I've been asking them "How can Robme be 'God's' candidate if he has to lie, cheat and steal the election to win?" I ask them to point out any place in history where GOD supported a candidate like that for leadership. There HAVE been leaders and religious leaders as well that were real scum, but doesn't mean God was happy about it either.

I know this makes little to no sense to a non-believer, but it's giving my relatives a hard ethical dilemma. I point out the flaws in politicizing their faith which gets more insane as this specific election goes on.

8. Was Moses a liar? Did Jesus have to trick the twelve disciples?

Interesting questions which never occurred to me until now.

10. Like Jacob Schmirnov says, "You will now"

&feature=related



"America: What a country!"

American life and custom through the eyes of a new immigrant. For instance:

"I go to New York and I saw a big sign saying 'America Loves Smirnoff' and I said to myself, what a country!"
Reading employment announcements of "Part-Time Woman Wanted": "What a country! Even transvestites can get work."

Upon being offered work as a barman on a "graveyard shift", he remarks, 'A bar in a cemetery! What a country! Last call? During Happy Hour the place must be dead.'[2]
At the grocery store: "Powdered milk, powdered eggs, baby powder ... what a country!"
At the grocery store after finding "New Freedom" Maxi Pads: "Freedom in a box! What a country!"
"The first time I went to a restaurant, they asked me 'How many in your party?' and I said 'Six hundred million'."
"In every country, they make fun of city. In U.S. you make fun of Cleveland. In Russia, we make fun of Cleveland"

Bizarre comparisons between the U.S. and Russia:
"We have no gay people in Russia there are homosexuals but they are not allowed to be gay about it. The punishment is seven years locked in prison with other men and there is a three-year waiting list for that."[3]
"I like parades without missiles in them. I'll take Bullwinkle to a tank anyday'"

He once told Johnny Carson, "I enjoy being in America: it's fun, you know, because you have, you have so many things we never had in Russia like warning shots."
When Carson asked if comedians in the Soviet Union can crack jokes about their leaders, Smirnoff replied, "Of course -- once."

9. On fb, the Christian Left 'group' (page? wall?) offers me what I want

Their posts remind me that Jesus focused on helping the poor, healing the sick, welcoming the stranger/immigrant, being on the side of the marginalized...never on the side of the rich & powerful.
