It's sad that such attitudes exist, but we can only keep fighting against them.

Religion, unfortunately, is often the seed from which they grow. Thank goodness the majority of religious people aren't that daft.

And there was I thinking Jesus was some kind of peace loving hippie!

Ah well, the muslims are just as bad, if not far worse! But then I think that has far more to do with the USA's foreign policy, than religion.

I think these are examples of where people use religion to try to back up their pre existing prejudice.

Jesus was about love, and accepting everyone for who they are. I think he'd have some pretty harsh words for some so called "churches", just as he did for the Pharisees.

So you are saying there is good and bad in all religions? Funny how atheists don't burn down places of worship but Christians and Muslims do. Indonesia for example.

No, in the Soviet Union they blew them up instead.

(Cue chorus of "they weren't real atheists, soviet communism was a pseudo-religion, they weren't blown up 'in the name of' atheism", etc.   )

Was St Basil's cathedral blown up? Can you give any examples or is this just your usual tripe?

No. Did I say that they blew up every church in the Soviet Union?

No tripe:

In Moscow over 400 churches and monasteries were dynamited, including the famous Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.

Communists are not necessarily atheists.
