Quote# 42465

(The original question is about how Christians could believe that loving people like Gandhi are going to hell)

god is love
so if you do not know god you do no understand love
you may have tasted you may have touched it but you do not understand it

These people who hate so well are the only people who know love.

I guess that it is the love of hatred.

Strange love, which orders entire towns killed (or destroys them with its own hand), an entire planet flooded (with almost all humans as well as animals killed), orders humans killed, for example because they touch a sacred relic with the intention to prevent it from falling from a cart, orders married women stoned who get raped within a city or orders them to get married to their rapist if they weren´t married and so on (see OT)

Sounds to me as if it is more worth to adhere to Gandhis understanding of love than to gods (and his fundamentalists) understanding of the same thing

I want nothing to do with that kind of "love". I will stick to the love that sane people feel for eachother.

I don't want to taste, touch or understand bullshit.

"Know god" here is to be translated as accepting god's any action as an expression of his love. It does not matter what the nature of that action may be. The viciously circular nature of this line of thought seems never to occur to the holders to this kind of blind faith. The motivation to believe this line of reasoning is derived from the fact that the believer comes out smelling like a rose. Yet in fact they are covered in the slimy shit of eminently selfish, self-centered believe. I've go mine. It must be a good thing. Ditto: bullshit. Yet bullshit that is never detected by the shitter.

rather be 69ing

you may have tasted you may have touched it but you do not understand it

Hey! Check this out. We can apply this analogy to other things as well.

For example, I have tasted pussy, I have touched pussy, but I do not understand women.

Mr Smith

If you think that god is love then that just goes to show that you neither know love nor understand it.

7/8/2008 12:09:14 PM


Woo, Love to hate.

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Ghandi > the Abrahamic God.

7/8/2008 1:08:09 PM


Any human being who claims to fully understand love is a twit and/or a liar.

7/8/2008 1:14:41 PM


Mahatma Ghandi > the Abrahamic God.

True, but still Ghandi != perfect.

If god is love, then why send good people to hell

7/8/2008 1:44:29 PM


Looks like craps, smells like crap, tastes like crap.
It is crap! Good thing I didn't step in it.
So voice of Logic, since you are not, or ever have been, an atheist, how can YOU possibly understand.
I think not, since your style of ignorance is the deepest of all.

7/8/2008 1:48:58 PM


Oh, well that makes so much se--wait, that clarifies nothing.

7/8/2008 1:52:57 PM


God loves humanity in the same way Hitler loved the Jews.

7/8/2008 1:55:46 PM


God is love? That must be why He lets us know how much we suck at every conceivable opportunity. If I attempted to raise my son (age 8 now) using the same methods as Jehovah I would be up on charges of child abuse.

7/8/2008 2:53:08 PM


I've heard this a lot. It's just another dehumanization process in which only Christians are real people with a real grasp of human emotions and the rest only think we do but are really just deceived tools of the devil. Logic is not a friend of the religious fundie, that is for damn sure.

Mr Brightside

If gos were real, I would prefer to be in hell with Gandi, the Buddahs, and Siddartha than with Bundy, Hitler and all the Serial Killers.

Allegory for Jesus

Love: another word, like good, and evil, that is essentially according to Christians when used from a human perspective.

7/8/2008 6:02:20 PM


Stop making up your own definitions for "love" when you clearly has no idea what it means to us actual people!

Princess Rot

Love tastes salty and feels warm and fleshy.

7/8/2008 6:14:03 PM


If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, it's going to hell.
