I received this message from Lumber-Jax12, and I had to share it with you all.
"Millions of people have been killed by atheism, the entire 20th century was fought because of atheism, Stalin and Mao respectively have directly killed more than 90 million people, and where not even counting the nazis.
Hitler was an active member of paganism. An ancient religion that has died out, due to violent beliefs, yet Hitler was a fan of it and at some point even started to convince his SS officers to leave the church, stop baptisms, and he never was married by a minister, it was all civil. The OSS themselves have claimed his next step was the eradication of the Christian churches. He refused to even teach religion in his Hitler Youth program.
Hitler even killed thousands and publicly damned atheists, too. He had no loyalty to anything or anyone but himself. So essentially you have the second greatest genocide committed by an agnostic.
Real bad for religion right? The man was more pagan than anything, and you can't argue that Paganism still counts, its dead and has been years.
It was violent then, and it is violent now, that is why no one preaches it, Sure you can say it has killed thousands and you be right. But to try and target specific, existing religions( E.G. The Abrahamic Religions) and state they have caused only harm is ridiculous.
The last pope was extremely influential in bringing down one of the most repressive and brutal regimes. The head of the state, aka the "Stalin" of the time even stated he helped to do so. One of the most peaceful and helpful cultural revolutions ever designed were lead by holy men, Civil Rights? Hmm lets see that would be none other than REVEREND Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas Gandhi or were they brain-dead and brainwashed too?
JFK? A catholic responsible for standing against the USSR's attempt to bring Nuclear Weapons to a radically unstable government, a brain-washed moron who follows the masses? Hardly.
So is religion still some horrible and disgusting ideal used to brainwash the masses, No if anything they have been responsible for the death of a few millions, and the liberation and freedom of some half a billion people in this world.
Why don't you stop making atheists look bad, come up with arguments as to why its your CHOICE, and stop evangelizing this religion based on something you read in a book, by british prick. and let people think what they want too, oh and ps.I always get last word."
