Being a Christian only allows someone to do and say things that would put a normal person in a straight jacket.
If you know when and by whom the universe was created… good for you. As for me and my house, we will take honesty and common sense any day.
Religion is worse than the state lottery. Imagine a game that is like a pyramid and Ponzi scheme, all rolled up into one; you pay into it weekly at the rate of 10% of your paycheck. It also requires you to die before you can check your tickets to find out if you have won the heavenly jackpot. To keep you busy while he is fleecing you, the presiding crook or thief will entertain you by peddling a real estate lot in heaven, if you give him/her more money.
God sacrificed himself to himself to save us from himself, so he would not be mad at himself for the many mistakes he made.
If prayers worked, Jesus wouldn’t have died on the cross. The biblical Jesus dying on the cross, after imploring and begging his dad to spare his life 5 times, shows, beyond the reasonable doubt, that even Jesus could not get his own prayers answered.
We despise fathers who don’t take care of their children (child support, etc..), yet we are willing to worship one who murdered his one and only son.
While science, history, geology, biology and physics have failed to convince believers otherwise, some idiots rolling around on the floor, “speaking in tongues” may be all the evidence they need to “prove” their religion.
Wake-up call for Catholics who worship the virgin Mary. The Immaculate Conception, which is different from the doctrine of Incarnation, was created by my old Jesuit order in 1854, when pope Pius IX puked his papal bull “Ineffabilis Deus”.
The biblical man and woman were not given and never had free will. It’s in the bible, people. You would have known if you took the time to pry it from your armpit and read Psalms 139:16 (NIV) and 1 Samuel 2:6-8.
