"Good News" clubs teach children in public schools the Biblical importance of killing all non believers

This headline is full of fail. 1) For the Secular Fundamentalist: these clubs are not held during school hours. They are held after hours when the general public has access to public schools. 2) Christians have been around for nearly two thousand years and have not engaged in genocide.

Bevets: Christians have been around for nearly two thousand years and have not engaged in genocide.


t6ak.roblox.com

You've never heard of Oliver Cromwell, have ya? Or the wars and genocidal acts of the protestant reformation? Or the Trail of Tears? Or how the Crusaders took Jerusalem and slaughtered everyone inside, after offering amnesty. And I bet the Spanish reconquest didn't come off without slaughtering a few whole cities. And then there's some Charlie Chaplin look alike who racked up an outrageous gas bill after having written a book that included something alone the lines of "My Christian duty".

To be fair, Religion isn't the reason for goading people to genocide. It's about power. And you'll seldom find genocides conducted without the blessing of those in power.

Oh, and one last note... Rwanda is about 90% Christian.

So? What ancient religion (that hasn't been destroyed by other religions and then "resurrected" by those who weren't privy to the original beliefs) hasn't preached that it's okay to kill non believers? It seems that Judaism, Christianity (at least through inheritance) and Islam all suffer from this affliction.

Sure, Hinduism and Buddhism offer some salvation from this "Kill them all, let god sort them out" belief -however: aren't they a little less believable without this fundamental tenant?

s2s2s2: When I was in my late teens, there was a new movement of gay outreach to public high schools in my town.
I was lead to believe, by the church, that this was a recruitment tool. I was skeptical. Then, I met a gay guy that worked in the program. He came to the table of the cafe I was having lunch at, and tried to convince me I was gay for about half an hour. Suddenly I had reason to believe this program was, in fact, recruitment. Then I decided judging the whole program based on what I was able to perceive of it was probably fncking stupid.


I hear that every time they convert a straight, God-fearing republican man, they get a free toaster.

WHERE THERE ARE FUNDIES, FUN DIES.

And what a surprise it will be to them when they decide to launch their little "cleansing" program on the nonbelievers, only to find out that when you declare war on the rest of Humanity, the rest of Humanity is going to fight back.

What? Did they think that everyone was just going to meekly say "Okay" and line up to head into the gas chambers?

BronyMedic: Why do you think that there were pseudo-religious runes and symbols in almost everything the Nazis minted, printed, and fought with?


Pseudo-religious? As opposed to what?

Did Hitler fight against the churches? Certainly. They were a competing power base.
But there is no logical reason to hate the Jews, other than a reason that is based in Christianity (or Islam). The same "reason" that Martin Luther was afflicted with. Or are you going to say that that vile anti-Semite Martin Luther was not a Christian?

FirstNationalBastard: It should be considered child abuse to force religion on children.

If someone is so bugfark nuts to want to believe in fairy tales once they reach adulthood, that's their business. But to poison the minds of impressionable children with this crap and turn them into hatemongers and terrorists based on a millennium old book of fairy tales is despicable, and should be seen as a reason to have the children removed from the care of the irresponsible individuals brainwashing them.

/religion is a mental illness.

Isn't it bad enough that they have their little clubs at colleges (like Campus Crusade and others)? Now they want to brainwash little kids?

Religion is like a penis: It's fine to have one. It's fine to be proud of it. But keep it to yourself and don't expose children to it.

I think it is a good thing that these christians are being so open about what they believe. In the long run it will lose them the children they seek to indoctrinate. There is a christian group that meets after school at the school I work at called Squire The Fire. A real nutty right wing fundamentalist group. Several of the kids go to it because they are expected to by their parents. Those kids have told me in confidence one of the reasons they allow themselves to be forced to go is so they can go to conferences in large cities a couple of times a year, the school I work at is in a town of 500. The reason they want to go to these conferences? Hook up with girls and smoke weed.

sharpiegreed: I am a Good News Club volunteer.
If followed correctly, it is simply church for children. They have a meal, sing bible songs, have a basic bible lesson (like the Good Samaritan), play games for small prizes, memorize a bible verse, and have a story about a missionary.

In no way, shape, or form should there be anything else going on. It is no different than traditonal Vacation Bible School or Sunday School.

I see that the article is talking about a lesson in next year's plan, which I have not seen and can't comment on it's accuracy.

Just because some Christians are crazy and fanatical doesn't mean every Christian is crazy and fanatical.

I did not convert to Christianity until I was 30 years old. I have been on both sides of the fence and both sides have ridiculous assumptions about the other.

The most amazing part of the Good News Club for me is that I know for alot of kids, the meal we serve them is the only decent food they will get for the rest of the day and sometimes the praise and attention we give is all they will get outside of the classroom. Sometimes including the classroom.

These children are not forced to go to club. It is a completely voluntary club. Parents sign permission slips. If you have any earnest questions about my experience with the Good News Club , EIP.

I'm not trying to change any one person's opinion. I just wanted to share my experience
.
you're all dead! dead! 'cuz the Bible tells me so! This is my body! It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven. Do this in memory of me! Drink my blood, too! Don't look at it Marion! It's beautiful! Face Melting! Aaarrgghhh!
