Idiots, all of you. And the cops in the article were right, they probably would have beaten them up. I know if you tried to walk up to me and convert me when you KNEW I didn't want you to, I'd be ready to do some punching.

"Soon we may even be persecuted in North America"
cue the pie chart!
11/22/2008 12:35:42 AM
Jesus tapdancing Christ we're not oppressing you people you're just way too sensitive. Pansies !
11/22/2008 12:49:18 AM
Oh NOES! We might have to be tolerant. Nooooees!
11/22/2008 1:10:05 AM
We can't be tolerant to others for their beliefs and lifestyle choices. We're Christains.

a mind far far away
Only those who have read the bible realize that it truely is hate speech at it's worst.

Just for the record, the event in question occurred in Birmingham, England.
And you know how weird English laws are with regards to religion.

Human rights? Inclusiveness? Those would terrify any right-thinking person.
11/22/2008 2:23:59 AM
"There are so-called Human Rights tribunals in Canada that have worried many believers here."
Yeah, human rights suck.

It won't be long I'm afraid until the Holy Bible is declared hate speech.
You mean you missed it, dildojesus? I already declared it was.
11/22/2008 2:40:06 AM
the bible is hate speech... what's your point exactly
11/22/2008 2:50:47 AM
Suck it up and move on, you whiny brat.
11/22/2008 2:53:43 AM
You just have to wonder what would happen if a muslim went and preached the islam in their temples, and forums
11/22/2008 3:02:04 AM
I highly doubt that you personally, or anyone you know, have ever been persecuted. You are a member of the majority religion in north america, with no other religion even close in number of belivers, and you have the gall to claim you and your kind are peing persecuted? I'd like you to name a single "special interest group" that publicly considers the bible to be hate speech, just one.
I see that "socialist" is now the new religious right buzzword of the day, do you even have the slightest idea what socialism is all about? From the kind of talk I hear coming from fundies these days you'd think that the sole tenet of socialism was to persecute christians. And for what it's worth an "inclusive" society wouldn't exclude christians, not that I expect you to understand that.
I think almost all of the claims of persecution of christians in north america is nothing more than a combination bullshit, end times fantasy, and psuedo-religious masochism. They have become so used to persecuting those who are not like them that they percive not being able to opress others as persecution. I see it all the time, with the same breath they use to cry "persecution" they also exclaim "gays, atheists, muslim, etc. how dare these people have rights! We must take them away". So many of them have either forgotten or never even read the part of the bible where the man they claim to follow told them to "judge not, lest ye be judged". Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Being told to STFU is not "persecution".
11/22/2008 3:14:02 AM
Nah, you're wrong.
11/22/2008 4:10:18 AM
*sigh* So, do Muslims get to preach in the section dedicated to Christians now? Fair is fair, you know.
11/22/2008 5:04:37 AM
We can only hope.

Christians are being persecuted the world over and now this...
I've been hearing this lie since Christian summer camp (Camp Gilead) back in the early 80s. The worst persecutions you guys suffer is when some natives out in B.F.E. kill/eat your missionaries. Call me a defeatist but if a group of people kept killing my missionaries I'd take the hint and stop sending them there. Here in America the "persecution" amounts to very small groups of people asking or telling you to shut the f*** up.
... it won't be long I'm afraid until the Holy Bible is declared hate speech.
If I stood on a street corner and ranted about an invisible creature that killed anyone and everyone who disagreed with me, I'd expect to get the "hate speech" label. Why would you think your hateful book is any different?

Yeah, Christians *are* being persecuted worldwide . . . but Canada is not the Sudan or rural India, you fail.

"Oh, we're so oppressed. All we have done is bring the word of god to the ignorant world, and kill an average of 1630 people per day for the last 1600 years doing it".
Religion is man's worst invention, and christianity the worst of all.
