It must really suck having Christians "on your back trying to ram our religion down your throats" all the time.
Personally I have never seen any Christians do this, but whatever.

Has an atheist ever keyed your car because they hated you for being christian?

Have you ever had an atheist fire you for being a christian?
The hate explodes off the monitor.

Sure...i have a choir. They're called the Manhattan Transfer. Try'em sometime. They sound great.

And yea..it does suck. Never seen it, huh? Well here's an example by a well know...ahem..Christian!

On January 3, 2010, as a guest commentator on Fox News Sunday Hume offered advice to Tiger Woods that he might turn his faith to Christianity. Hume's comments came in the wake of the revelation of Tiger Woods' habitual adultery and the resulting deterioration of his relationship with his family. Hume stated on the show that:[9]
Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person I think is a very open question, and it's a tragic situation for him. I think he's lost his family, it's not clear to me if he'll be able to have a relationship with his children, but the Tiger Woods that emerges once the news value dies out of this scandal -- the extent to which he can recover -- seems to me to depend on his faith. He's said to be a Buddhist; I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So my message to Tiger would be, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.'

ya but from what i have seen on this cd you atheists are right there with the christians cramming your believes down all their throats too. god forbid anyone say anything about a holiday or christian beliefs and your right there on them telling them they are wrong and you are right ( not you personally) but everyone does it. it comes from both sides.

First of all Brit Hume actually caught flak for that by none other than Bill O'Reilly. Secondly, If that is what you call getting on Woods' back and cramming Christianity down his throat, I'd hate to hear how you would react to Jehovah's Witnesses ringing your doorbell.

What did Brit Hume say that was wrong? Buddhism does't offer forgiveness and redemption like Christianity.

And it's no worse than the 3 min of Family Guy that I caught last night before I could find the remote. They "crammed" anti-religious talk down my throat.

You're the one claiming that atheists hate christians. Support your claims with evidence, or admit you're lying for Jesus.

Well he got it from Bill O'Reilly, huh? How nice. Cuz you know...O'Reilly's opinion matters to me. I mean, if HE rebuked Hume, then it's the rebuke of all rebukes...knowhatimean??

And pretty much...yea, that was cramming Christianity down Woods throat. Plain and simple. I've never seen anything like it. A news anchor giving religious advice? LOL...lemme see if i can find any old Cronkite tapes featuring his best religious advice.
