I feel sorry for atheists.

I feel more sorry for Moslems. So many of them are earnestly seeking God, devoutly praying five times a day, faithfully following all the prescribed duties of good Moslems, and they have all been terribly deceived. It breaks my heart to see decent, sincere, God fearing people led astray.

Paul said cursed are those who are still under the law. Religion can't save anyone. I feel badly for them too. They desperately need our prayers.

The more sympathy you profess to feel for atheists, the more affection you fancy your imaginary supervisor has for you. Good system.

It's okay to feel badly for those who are perishing.

That is at least evidence that you Religion -apologists never listen and never learn. Hitler was not an atheist. He was not a churchgoer (he was the the Boss, not some church or other) but he believed in 'God'.

Most people seem to have learned this indisputable fact. Not you.

As for Stalin, Pol Pot and the other Marxists, their excesses were down their dictatorship, their ruthlessness their Marxist Dogma and their cult of the Leader. In North Korea, that has become a hereditary dynasty with all the trappings of a religion, so don't tell me North Korea is atheist.

You will find that quite a few of us Muslims were Christians at one time. We feel that it was through our prayers we were led to Islam. Do not feel sorry for us. We were granted what we had prayed for.

Most of us. perhaps all of us who accepted Islam did not do so because we turned against Jesus(as) but because we have very great love of Jesus(as). I worshiped Jesus(as) as a Christian, but it is through Islam I learned to follow what He taught.

I will prayer that you and all Christian. will be led to the truth.

Yes there are very evil people who the world believes are Muslim just as there are evil people who the world believes are Christian. One can not judge any religion based upon the actions of those who misuse it for their own gains.

You put that up in defense of a god that during one of its tantrums killed 99.999999% of all life on the planet. It's spelled h - y - p - o - c - r - i - s - y.

This sums up why christianity is evil. At the bottom of all the love/compassion talk, is this contempt for those who don't believe as you do.

Time for your type of christian to grow up, and put decency ahead of fairy tales, and goatherder stories.
