Quote# 56606

When Christians proselytize, it's "witnessing". When Atheists do the same, it's "attacking". Why?


Answer:It has to do with intent.

When Christians witness, it is with the intent to save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sin.

When an atheist attacks a Christian, it is with the intent to rob a soul of life and cause him to sin.

When Christians witness, it is with the intent to con a victim and make him a robot with no indepenent thought.

When an atheist attacks a Christian, it is with the intent to reboot independent thought.

Fixed.

Huh, I had no idea. You learn something new every day I guess...
I always thought that when I sometimes promote atheism, I was trying to encourage free thought, rationality and reason; things that can greatly enhance people's lives. But apparently I want to rob souls of life. I never knew.

Thanks s2scrm, who apparently know my motives much better than I do myself.

Religion is just another form of the Nigerian 419 scams or Advanced Fee scams.

Yes, yes! We atheists can now harness the power of the genesis device thanks to all the souls we have stolen. The world will be ours! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

When Christians witness, it is with the intent to save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sin.

When an atheist attacks a Christian, it is with the intent to keep them from pushing their religious beliefs into our schools and laws.

There. Fixed.

When Christians witness, it is with the intent to coerce monetary donations in exchange for endless repetitions of unproven fantasies promoting some religious hierarchy by means of fear and paranoia.

When an atheist attacks a Christian, it's usually because said Christian would not accept "fuck off" for an answer and has invaded one's personal space.

Verbal argument/debate does not qualify as an attack. If you don't want your beliefs challenged, keep them to yourself.

"When an atheist attacks a Christian, it is with the intent to rob a soul of life and cause him to sin."

If by that you mean put an end to childish superstition that robs many of their human rights, spreads hate and attempts to hold back the progression of the human race through greater knowledge and understanding of the world and the universe that may help us one day to not only save ourselves but to understand ourselves as well, then yes you are correct.

@wackadoodle:
If you don't proofread your comment before you post it, you make yourself look as daft as the fundies. That first sentence really sucks.

You really aren't aware that other points of view exist, are you?

Save a soul from death? Rob a soul of life?

You sound like a ball of sunshine. I'll bet you're a scream at parties.

Saved many souls from death, have you? Got any souvenir photos?

And this is why evangelism should be outlawed. To fix such stupid and arrogant egotistical mentalities

S2 etc,

I don't go seeking you out. I don't wish to engage with you or your kind. It's you and your kind who seek out others and try to save them. So you feel persecuted when you are rejected? Tough shit, Sherlock. Leave people in peace and they will generally do the same for you.

Don't we have a pie chart that shows how fundies persecute non-christians? Please?

How can we be trying to make you sin and turn away from gawd if we don't believe in gawd?

When I proseltyze it involves numchucks and the Wu-Tang sword style. So the label "attacking" seems fair.

I thought atheists attacked Christians to piss them off. I mean, it is a good reason.

1/16/2009 5:34:27 PM

Ash

Yeah, except no. Since we don't believe in 'sin', 'soul' or 'god'.

How can the intent be to rob you of something that he or she doesn't believe exists???

How can you claim to have had something stolen from you when you can't even prove you had it to begin with???

I've never seen atheists go door-to-door. But to be fair, I think most Christians have good intentions. However, they seem to consider an atheist "attacking" when they are just discussing religion.
