Any "Christian" who engages in bullying is clearly an atheist who is just pretending to be a Christian (including to themselves).

I was under the impression that atheists did not exist.

Okay that's it.
I'm devoting my life to developing vaccines against fallacies. If only, some day, we can inject these people to immunize them against basic, readily refuted informal fallacies by injecting a No True Scotsman serum right into their damn bloodstream.
Or, perhaps more realistically, we can diagnose these people as having "cognitive malfunctions", and operate on their brains?
Oh, and for the record, if this person seeks to humiliate, denigrate, and otherwise put down atheists in such a way that it constitutes a form of bullying, would it be a tacit admission that they themselves are an atheist?

Ok... so any Christian who you think of as bad isn't really a Christian, but an atheist. But then there is no such thing as a true atheist because we secretly all know there's a god but deny it because we like butt sex. ...
I wish you guys could just decide. You can't have it both ways, you know. I think such indecision and confusion is the mark of Satan. Go pray. In fact, I think you should gather all your Christian friends and acquaintances and fast until you come to a consensus. That would solve ALL our problems. =D

I have never had an atheist threaten me with eternal damnation if I wouldn't change my belief system to match his.
I have never had an atheist knock on my door at an indecent hour on a weekend morning and refuse to go away when I said I was not interested in his message.
No atheist ever told my late husband, who was Jewish, that he was going to hell unless he changed his belief system.
In fact, I've never met an atheist who pressed his belief system on ANYONE...ever. I've never heard an atheist advocate or even try to justify the killing of children or sending good people to eternal torment because they won't switch to atheism.
I cannot, however, say the same for most of the xtians I have had the misfortune to meet.

Not everyone who bullies other people are athiest, in fact alot of them do it in the name of your god. Ever heard of Fred Phelps?
Athiest are not the ones telling other people that their going to hell.

Why then are those atheist bullies masquerading as televangelists? Oh wait, they're extortionists, not bullies.

I was bullied by the daughter of an Episcopalian minister all throughout middle school. So you fail.

He posted this later on:
"It's just that some people seem mentally incapable of comprehending that other people count and that they should be respected. Some people just don't care and don't have a conscience."
Irony award, anyone?

All christians are atheists? Who knew?
Does this mean christians are muslims?
3/25/2008 7:52:14 PM
I'm a christian and will stone you to death if you do not believe in God, but I can't bully you or it will prove me an atheist.
Damn I think I understa.........[Head Explodes]

-Actually, this one isn't too bad. "Dreidel" admits that people who call themselves 'Christians' and act in ways obviously contrary to Christian teachings are just fooling themselves. Whether "Dreidel" is able (or needs to) to apply this to him/herself is another question, I guess.
-Remember, when fundies say 'clearly' they mean 'possibly, given that you stretch a point of view or word definition to the point of breaking with sanity'.
- And a verrah cute username.

wait, does this also mean that any atheist who doesn't engage in bullying is clearly a christian who is just pretending to be an atheist (including to themselves) ?
does that mean you're going to stop judging me just becuase I CLAIM to be an atheist?
oh... no... I didn't really think so.. (/cry)

Any "Christian" who engages in charitable behavior and is overall a decent human being is clearly an atheist who is just pretending to be a Christian (including to themselves). Because peaceful and kind temperaments are completely against God's will to have man be in His image: fickle, jealous, and smite-happy.

I don't even see the thought process in this. How did you come to that conclusion?
3/25/2008 9:14:59 PM
If we cut a fundies head open, would we find little physical brick wall in their brain? Their thoughts are just so damn compartmentalized.
3/25/2008 9:30:42 PM
Uh-huh...so basically bad people = atheist, good people = Christian. Never mind what they actually BELIEVE, that's all it REALLY boils down to, eh?
3/25/2008 10:02:50 PM
I've actually heard something similar from people.
Assist little old lady -
her - Oh my, your such a good Christian.
me - Um... no I'm not
her - Oh
