Why are those you believe in a god so aggressive?


It seems to be fairly common for one who believes in the existence of a supernatural deity to verbally attack, threaten with damnation and even demean anyone who does not subscribe to such a belief. Are such beliefs built on such intimidation and is this its true foundation?

    I see the problem is that in any group of people, regardless if we are discussing religion, race, politics, etc., all seem to be painted with the same brush. And it is quite a shame, as there are many great people out there.

    That is a whole different ballgame. Now we are talking about extremists.

    Laura--My question was a question and not a statement of truth. As to your asserted innuendo that the police officer was racist--I know who have evidence to back that up--right?

    For over 1000+ yrs Christianity was very savage.

    Who exactly are you calling an atheist? The question certainly did not speak of Christianity but religions in general. I spoke of Christianity, but also of Muslims. I also spoke of our First Amendment rights.
