Why do numerous Christians convert to Islam and Hinduism? In fact, why do some become freethinkers? Such as the guy at http://www.ministerturnsatheist.org
You guys don't exactly have the monopoly on conversion.

"i am not who i used to be"
I'm scared to even contemplate how nuts you were before you decided a masochist, misogynistic invisible man in the sky loves you.

If only Youtube and Yahoo answers were actual buildings with their large concentrations of morons inside, all hooting and yelling nonsense at each other. We could just board up the doors, lift the buildings onto the back of huge trucks, and drive them out to the middle of the Kalahari Desert. Behold! The average IQ has increased tenfold!

Because it doesn't make any fucking sense(and your grammar demonstrates that you haven't thought very deep)?

Er...isn't Islam currently the most converted-to religion? If anyones got some figures or soemthing that'd good.

Muslims often convert because they live in oppressive societies and this is a form of rebellion. Quite a few iranian kids are into rock music.
Hindus often convert because they are oppressed by the caste system in rural areas. And because christians turn up and perform rice conversions to poor people. So come join the church and we will give you food. The problem with orthodox hinduism is the caste system's oppressiveness.
However the new hindu theology is a lot more accepting. People rarely join it because they do not go out and convert. People join if they want to. And they do. They like it because its a fairly fun religion that thinks life is fun and that fun can be had within boundaries.

Have fundies had an original argument in the past 2000 yrs?

They made their own god with it? I thought God was supposed to have made THEM. At last an admission that it's all made up.

" I'm not your buddy, friend!"
"I'm not your friend, guy!"
"I'm not your guy, buddy!"

Ask your god to give you an education. Please. This hurt my brain.

How do atheists love?
Oh wait, I forgot - Love is a human instinct that's been in our species since before we could walk upright.

Because they feel it is true. Plus I have seen more love from some friends of mine, one is Muslim,others are Pagan, a few are Hindu. I am Pagan myself. I believe the gods can spark love and help it through but it is the heart that feels it. If they don't exist, then it is all in the heart. No one needs your god to love. Plus Old Testament

Am I the only one who hates it when they call someone "brother" and "friend" while insulting them?

I asked an ex-Hindu that once, she just looked at me. It may have been the way I asked it. She mentioned she converted to Christianity, and I blurted out "WHY!"
Alister Crowley stated that you should never trust a Muslim who has converted to Christianity. Islam demands that you make amends for your sins, in Christianity all you have to do is pray for forgiveness. So someone converts because they have sins they don't want to make amends for.
I also know that a lot of starving people "convert" because the Christians feed them. Convert or starve is a pretty compelling argument. In that situation, I'd probably convert too.

Dear fundie Christians:
Stop laying claim to, and redefining, love. You guy are the worst examples of love on this earth.
Atheists, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, Agnostics, liberal Christians and anyone else not a fundie Christian

Why do Christians de-convert?
4/29/2008 7:10:45 PM
That certainly is a question. Not an intelligent one, but a question nonetheless.
4/29/2008 8:49:43 PM
Some guys convert to Christianity and some don't. Look at the numbers, and you'll see that there is something that doesn't match.

I know a guy who converted from Catholicism to paganism. I know another guy who converted from Protestantism to atheism. Do I win something for that?

Why do you assume I only love things? Life would be meaningless without people to love, jackass.

If Christians are converted from Jews then why are there still Jews?
There are so many planets in the universe that the chance of the Saviour coming to this one is so huge as to be effectively impossible.
If Noah and his family didn't eat the unicorns, who did?
Erk. I think I've discovered a new version of the FSTDT game. But I'm not sure if I can keep playing it, it makes my stomach hurt, my brain hurt, and my self-respect curdle.

Ask yourself something, why do Christians convert to Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism or atheism?
I forget, 'no true Christian' would ever convert to another philosophy.
