Quote# 52533

The difference between an atheist and a christian speaker : the atheistist can be a drunkard, a gay, a slanderer and a venoming fool, he is not accountable to his audience.
For a christian it is the other way round : he has to be of good reputation and decency, he has to be wise and a trustworthy representant of truth.

You're not Shakespeare; you're not allowed to make up words.

Sigh. It's "venomous", not "venoming", and "representative", not "representant."

Jeez. At least the atheist has mastered spelling and grammar.

Yeah - just like Kent Hovind and Uncle Fred Phelps.

A Christian can be a drunkard, a gay, a slanderer and a venoming(?) fool. He just has to pretend to be a trustworthy representant(?) of truth.

a mind far far away

You've switched them. It should be:

"The difference between an atheist and a christian speaker : the christian can be a drunkard, a gay, a slanderer and a venoming fool, he is not accountable to his audience, because he is who god made him to be, so god would approve of his actions no matter what, and even if he does indulge in something sinful, it doesn't matter, because god will just forgive him anyway. For an atheist it is the other way round: he has to be of good reputation and decency, he has to be wise and a trustworthy representant of truth."

There, it's fixed.

How many atheist speakers have been busted doing something amoral?

How many christian evangelists have been busted?

Atheistist? Venoming? Representant? Wow. New Rule. You aren't allowed to post anything else until you learn basic language skills. No making up words, no adding "ing" to nouns, and learn when you need to capitalize words-especially when said word is the name of your own religion.

Obviously the poster is 100% correct. I mean we all know what fine men Haggard, Swaggart, Paul Couch, Richard Roberts, Jim Baker, Kenty Hovind, etc. are...NONE of them have had problems with gay prostitutes, marital infidelity, tax evasion, or drug use.

Every televangelist that has been caught with his pants down proves that you're wrong.

No, no, conservativevoice, you've got that wrong. Haggard wasn't getting man-love from that male escort, it was a "massage."

Jim Bakker. Jimmy Swaggart. Ted Haggard.

You would condemn an atheist without a thought but you would give forgiveness over and over again to the Christian for the same transgressions.
Double standard much?

[The difference between an atheist and a christian speaker : the atheistist can be a drunkard, a gay, a slanderer and a venoming fool, he is not accountable to his audience.]

Bullshit. Speaking for myself, I call things like I see them, and if somebody's talking crap, I speak up about it.

For example:

[For a christian it is the other way round : he has to be of good reputation and decency, he has to be wise and a trustworthy representant of truth.]

Jimmy Swaggart. Jim Jones. Ann Coulter. Fred Phelps. Jim & Tammy Fae Bakker. Ted Haggard. Rush Limbaugh. Kent Hovind. Pat Robertson. Bill O'Reilly. Dinesh D'Souza.

Hell, Christians in the US fell all over each other to re-elect George W Bush for his second term, and he had already shown himself to be ANYTHING but wise and trustworthy.

Maybe that s/he has to be this way.
But s/he rarely is, especially in case of christian fundamentalists ;)

11/21/2008 3:10:22 PM



And why is it exactly that the Christians never are these paragons of virtue?

There are only two types of evangelist: Those who have been caught with their pants down/hands in the till/addicted to drugs or alcohol and those who haven't ...

"atheistist"

Whatever the fuck that is.

Sure. Being a pecksniffing, judgmental, holier-than-thou scold is bad enough without being a hypocrite, too.

11/21/2008 3:23:47 PM

Like Ted Haggard and all those Catholic priests? STFU

Actually, atheists are ONLY accountable to the audience. We don't believe that our entire existence is accountable to any higher power, so the only people we ARE accountable to are ourselves and the people around us.

Atheistist: someone who doesn't believe in the existence of theists. I agree, those guys must be drunks.

Happy, happy drunks.

Mr Smith

How is a christian accountable to his audience?


You make no sense!

So then why is it I would hear the Christian say it was Satan who made him slip up? The atheist would be able to say at least that they made a mistake.

You have Kent Hovind. We win.
