Do Atheists have the same grudge against Pagans and Buddhists as they do against Christians?
Every time I log on here anymore, there is a question about why Christians can't except beliefs of others, and it seems these questions are coming from Atheists. Sometimes the word "religionist" is used, but it is obvious they're referring to Christians. Is there there the same resentment towards other religions? Remember, there are thousands of religions.
There is a cultural world war described by Dennis Prager as having three sides: liberal secular, Judeo-Christian American and Islamic fascism. Other religions aren't more than regional and local players in this world war.
The liberal secularists range from the atheist Communist of Soviet Russia to the groups that want to ban all religion in public in democracies. They readily ally with Muslims to attack Christianity while saying they aren't against all religion, look, the Muslim agrees with me.
The problem is that the liberal secular has been fighting the majority Christian society so long that they don't realize how moderate their society is, and they live in fear of Christians becoming ISIS or the Taliban - all while ignoring the beheadings, bombings, killings of teachers and vaccination workers by Muslim groups around the world. The liberal secularists are afraid the Christians will create a theocracy oppressing women and non-Christians, while ignoring Saudi Arabia requiring women to have male guardians, Pakistan letting atheist bloggers get murdered, ISIS' having sex slave markets with Yazidi girls.
In short - the liberal secularist is afraid the Christians will become the Muslim theocracy, while ignoring the Muslim groups' oppression of women, non-Muslims and ethnic minorities.
But with their reflexive hatred of Christianity, they idealize non-Christian faiths.
As an outspoken atheist and anti-theist it really bothers me that certain elements of the left will shield Islam from criticism and ally themselves with it. Please understand that this is NOT something all liberals or atheists condone.
I know. Bill Maher's been consistent on this point. Ayan Hirsi Ali, Wafa Sultan, and the late great Christopher Hitchens as well. Too many, though, fear the Christians becoming ISIS/Al Queda/Boko Haram and minimize what those Muslim groups do.
Those Muslim groups do not hold sway in America. It is not Muslim fundamentalism vying to be presidemt. It is people who say abortion is murder and gays cannot marry. Call OUR prez lawless and faithless! (Cruz) All of them using women to see who best
One must realize, that there are people on this planet whose sole purpose is to complain & verbally attack others.
Yes, some of them are Atheists, but they are not the only ones that do this...
those that will complain & attack others without provocation, just because of their religion or faith, in my opinion, have an I.N.A. deficit(I need attention).
I do not know why they do this, but they do...so
SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO CLOSE YOUR EYES,
COUNT TO TEN, TAKE A DEEP BREATH,
REMIND YOURSELF THAT YOU WOULD NOT LOOK
GOOD IN PRISON STRIPES,
AND JUST SMILE AT THE PERSON
AND WALK AWAY.

But more Buddhists?
by Kitty Fields 17 months ago
Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other people have different lives and different experiences, and let them believe how they...

Why do religious people often insist that religion is what creates moral behavior?As an agnostic/atheist who works hard to do the right thing every day I find this insulting and ridiculous. After all, if prayer and religious beliefs equaled morals there would be no controversy with priests...

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...
