Thank God for watered down religion. September 8, 2009Posted by thegodless in Uncategorized.
While us Atheists shout from the rooftops about the absurdities of religious belief and the very real dangers that come with it, we should at least be thankful that there are so many watered down religionists. Take for instance the Muslim hadith, which states that “Paradise is in the shadow of swords” and that “A day and a night fighting on the frontier is better than a month of fasting and prayer.” The Holy Koran is also very clear in it’s messages of violence. (2:176) “Slay them wherever you find them.” (2:15) “A fire, “whose fuel is men and stones” awaits them.” Many Christians like to pretend that they are peaceful religionists, like there really is such a thing, but we all know that this can only come from ignoring their doctrine and Matthew 10:34 where Jesus states “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Need I say anything about the stoning, the fire and brimstone, and the rules for beating slaves. No matter what excuse the religionist uses to ignore the more violent aspects of their doctrine, it remains that they are indeed ignoring them and thank God for that.
