Aye, evil lurks everywhere and can be justified by using just about anything.

What point are you making here, TV? Did you just see a way of having a pop at theism?

Abodslutely not. The point I was making was that  the OP was having a pop (I would surmise) at all those evil people who believe in eugenics which he usually ascribes to atheists.

As you will notice from my post I didn't accuse people of religion or people without religion. I said if you read it, that evil can be justified by using just about anything.

For example, Hitler used religion as a justification for his deeds.

Now I don't think Hitler was anymore motivated to commit his evil acts by his supposed Christianty, than Stalin was by his supposed Atheism - but others will try to paint a different picture.

trent,
Are you explaining why the atheist government of China persecutes the underground Christians? Are you trying to explain why if you don't belong to the atheist government approved churches, but are meeting in homes, you will be hunted down and put in prison? Are you trying to explain why the atheist government of N Korea will throw you in prison for owning a Bible? Their version of atheism may not be yours but to suggest it doesn't in any way influence their hate and persecution of Christians and our scriptures is very naive.

Away with incense and Holy Water,
The Church can go hang for all we care,

TV's mileage may well differ (and probably does) but any excuse to that end will do for me. Any reason to have a pop at theism is a good reason, by definition as far as I'm concerned.

But then he isn't (AFAIK) an antitheist whereas I am, which probably explains it. TV's post is the kind of post I would have made for explicitly antitheistic ends, which I have absolutely no reason to believe his was, since he said "Absolutely not" whereas I would have said "Absolutely."

Relevance - the understanding of which is a skill worth learning.

You look like an arse otherwise.

You're not reading my posts. You  are answering posts in your own head.

If you think that the Chinese Government are acting the way they do because of their "atheism" then you have to accept good ole Adolf acted the way he did because of his Christianity.

As I have already pointed out - he did go out of his way to tell us.

So you must be very naïve to not believe that Christianity did not affect the Nazis desire to kill Jews. Adolf told us - it must be true.

Quote:
My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before in the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.... And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.... When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom to-day this poor people is plundered and exploited.
-Adolf Hitler, in his speech in Munich on 12 April 1922



So what you say Powsers - good old fascist or good old Communists - the choice is yours. Come on Down.

Goodness me Trent, you seem to have hit upon something I brought to mind a long, long time ago. Let's see how long it takes powsers to get it ... if he ever does
