(The Raw Story)   Alabama newspaper posts on Facebook asking for opinions on a privately-funded atheist display. A woman representing the Atheist group says her piece, and she is immediately pounced upon by Christians, who threaten to kill her   (rawstory.com ) divider line

'Become Muslims Christians by noon today... or we kill all of you' signed the good Christians of Alabama. Freedom of religion including not having one does not have a caveat. How are the FB posters a different type of Fundamentalists than the nutjobs the US is bombing in Iraq now.

how very christ-like of them.

Not to excuse the mouth-breathers heres, but she must have known that was coming.

The irony here is that central to the Christian tradition is overcoming persecution, and yet here we are.

So, no knocks on doors of the Christians from Federal officials? Or is there some loophole that you can make death threats against atheists with impunity?
 
2014-08-10 06:32:17 PM  
It really is amazing & quite sad how you can interchange the names of religious fundamentalist groups & the god they worship & their actions & threats sound remarkably similar.  Being complete hypocrites though they'd never admit such a thing as apparently their god told them to go be flaming assholes (probably not in so many words but their actions certainly lean that way).

Amanda Scott who represented the Mobile Atheist Community.

Good thing they're mobile. With threats like that I wouldn't want to stay in the same place very long.

Does the display show a symbol of core atheism, an idol maybe?

Christ, what a bunch of assholes.

They understand on some level that religion is losing it's once considerable power as a social force and it burns them at their little control freak cores.

Sick, sad, small minded people who embody the antithesis of Christ's teachings.
 
2014-08-10 08:13:27 PM  
Sorry guys but a few internet creeps is not grounds for condemning Christians.

And the horrors of ISIS are not grounds for condemning Islam.

Didn't the Pope recently call for prayers on behalf of the Christians in peril in Iraq?  Everyone else, fark em, I guess.

Why are they so upset?  If what they believe in is true then she'll be getting hers the moment this life ends, right?
 
2014-08-10 08:17:22 PM  
What's an atheist display? A white wall? Air?
 
2014-08-10 08:17:40 PM  
Before someone says "where are the moderate mainline Christians to condemn these guys," let me say as a moderate, mainline Christian that I condemn these guys.

Used to be the case that being a Christian was related to having a social conscience and wanting to improve people's lives, regardless of belief. See the social gospel movement and liberation theology etc etc.

These assholes make it difficult to love them.
 
2014-08-10 08:18:36 PM  
There appears to be this misconception that Christians are not violent killers. Particularly this brand of Southern Baptist Christianity. These people are vile scum.

But that's still not enough motivation to not be an abrasive prick to anyone you think believes differently.

Shocking. I've found Christians to usually be idiots.

Cpl.D: Funny how whenever God apparently talks to someone, it's always to encourage them to do something awful they wanted to do anyway.  It's never, "God told me to live simply, sell off my expensive belongings, and feed the poor and downtrodden."It's almost as if badly behaved people were using god as a mechanism to permit them to behave badly in a way that would get other people to excuse that behavior.


This actually happened to an old high school friend, but I know what you mean. Funny how God's wishes often coincide with the person clamming to know them.
 
2014-08-10 08:21:34 PM  
Yeah, Christers have more in common with your typical sharia loving dude in the desert than they do with civilized people. Stop prostrating yourselves to some stone aged sky god and his magical kid.

Seriously, he gave away all his stuff and devoted his life to God.

Knowing him as he was, it still surprises me.

Seriously, eat a bowl of taco flavored donkey dicks "Christians". How very "Christian" and forgiving of you. Toast jesus would be proud of your antics.

They certainly sound like violent mean assholes, and proudly unrepentent at that, using their real name facebook accounts and all. I wonder if their God created them in his own image or if they created him in theirs.

Well duh,  if you were a god would you choose someone that didn't want to do what you wanted them to do,  and have them fight you on it,  or would you choose someone who would like the idea and do as you say? =)

As an atheist, I can say I love them. Anyone that full of hatred is crying out for a hug, so I have no problem being the first to offer one.

After all, its the Christian thing to do.

I kinda miss Bevets, mostly because a misreading of his name early on resulted in reading of all his posts in Beavis's voice.

gfid: Not to defend the hateful comments, but this atheist knew he was trolling and he got what he asked for.


Yup.  Mission Accomplished.
The threats were still asinine, even though that was the desired response.

Still, I have to wonder what an Atheist display would look like.
I did see a Nihilist billboard the other day...

By your logic the Christo-fascists who originally demanded a privately funded Christian display be put up on public land knew they were trolling with that shiat and totally deserved the atheist to come along and tell them it was a dumb move and suggest an atheist display to get her point across.

If America ever gets to a point where the "In God We Trust" BS gets taken off the coinage you'll know the religious madness has abated and the good guys have won.

/funny, i don't see any other religious group out there blowing up innocent people, cutting their heads off, or executing them and posting videos about it. Not to mention the kidnappings for money, extortion, bribery, and general criminal behavior. So yes, i can blame islam for the terrorism in the world, for...they are the ones doing it. Not Christians, jews, etc....True, its not ALL of islam, but, you can't deny that they are islamic. Don't see anyone else doing that shiat.
