Default Re: Religion

I'm an atheist. My family aren't religious, apart from my Turkish uncle who is Muslim. The only religion I've really come into much contact with is Christianity which I hate with every fibre of my being. I understand how people want something to hold onto and believe, to feel secure in this massive world, but I despise the foundations it was built upon.

I hate the things that took place when people didn't convert to Christianity
I hate the treatment of the Pagans and the whole 'don't talk about Pagans if you're Christian' thing
I hate the removal of human freedoms
I hate the threatening leaflets I get through my door
I hate how God orders rape, pillage, killing, murder, hatred, sex trafficking and general wars and massacres in the Bible
I hate how most things in the Bible are written in a biased and very sexist way
I hate how it's brainwashing and a way for people to control 'the people'

This is also highly interesting, as is the website itself.

Also this.

“Thou shall not kill”
God kills 70,000 innocent people because David ordered a census of the people (1 Chronicles 21). God also orders the destruction of 60 cities so that the Israelites can live there. He orders the killing of all the men, women, and children of each city, and the looting of all of value (Deuteronomy 3). He orders another attack and the killing of “all the living creatures of the city: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses” (Joshua 6). In Judges 21, He orders the murder of all the people of Jabesh-gilead, except for the virgin girls who were taken to be forcibly raped and married. When they wanted more virgins, God told them to hide alongside the road and when they saw a girl they liked, kidnap her and forcibly rape her and make her your wife!
Sorry, but I don't want to worship something based on all this ****. It makes me feel sick, not loved.

I leave you with this. Read the lyrics online.
