"No - God could save us, but he choses to only if we chose him"
That would make God a horrible tyrant… Creating the Universe knowing in advance most of us would be damned to eternal. Knowing in advance whether or not we’d “choose” him. Knowing in advance our finite lives would end with infinite punishment. Wow. What kind of asshat God do you believe in?
"You are an atheist for self-centered reasons"
Seriously? That from Christians who believe they are saved everyone else is damned for not having the right religion? That makes atheists the self-centered ones? ROFL.
Christianity, just like atheism, can not realistically be looked at with objectivity. Both are just too deeply rooted in emotion that a real discussion about those topics will only cause strife. We could both talk a big game about how logical it is to believe either way, but be honest, neither makes any logical sense. That is why they are called beliefs. I'd love to talk more! firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t agree. You can’t equate the two. Atheism is the belief that no religion - no proposed definition of God - is credible or evidenced. Christianity is the belief that it is correct and all other religions are wrong.
Please don’t be telling me that you know what “god” is while everyone else who claims to be religious is wrong…
Ofcom has ruled that Islam Channel, a London-based broadcaster, broke the broadcasting code for advocating marital rape, violence against women and describing women who wore perfume outside of the home as “prostitutes”. Five programmes broadcast on the satellite TV channel were ruled to be in breach of broadcasting guidelines, the media regulator said today. Ofcom launched its investigation into the programmes, which aired in 2008 and 2009, following a report by the Quilliam thinktank that was published in March. In a programme first broadcast in April last year, Ofcom ruled that the Islam Channel host Nazreen Nawaz condoned marital rape when she said: “And really the idea that a woman cannot refuse her husband’s relations this is not strange to a Muslim because it is part of maintaining that strong marriage. But it shouldn’t be such a big problem where the man feels he has to force himself upon the woman.”
