Sure, I was being tongue-in-cheek about there being that many Christian assassins around, But

Shameful Lies?

Are you telling me you are ignorant of the Assassination and Mass Destruction attempts carried out and paid for by Christian Assassins and Christian Leaders/Employers of assassins?


Sure, I assume some are good people.

I'm sure this hits deep into your emotions, but let's be rational here. Hitler was a Baptised Christian, that ruled over Christians, regardless of his personal faith struggles with his cabinet having a preference of failed/natural-unselected-against pagan German religions and his personal preference for the more-self-defensive/improperly-reactionary Islam. That he wanted a "purer, more German, more violent Christianity (or whatever religion)" does not make him "anti-Christian" ruling over CHRISTIANS THAT VOTED FOR HIM AFTER HE WROTE OFTEN AND SAID PUBLICALLY OFTEN THAT HE WAS CHRISTIAN.

Subsequently, banning Atheists clubs as "too 'goody-goody dummy' likely Communists."

But aren't their leaders dropping bombs in random far away areas that never could even hope to threaten them? Haven't their Christian leaders funded multiple successful and unsuccessful assassination attempts?

Japan wanted to own their area's chunk of the Pacific. The US Atomic bombed two of their cities to say "no, this belongs to OUR rich, since they are richer than yours, and LOOK you are even doing some bad things over here, unlike us who never do anything bad."

Did a Muslim country develop Atomic bombs with Love? Then why would Christian Leaders?

Have you noticed how some skeptics will back pedal when called out?

No.

But I've sure noticed how many Christian fundies turn tail when confront with rationality.

Backpedal what? You edited my post.
Is that somehow not a type of a shameful lie? Is that what Jesus would applaud?

The Christians applauded when they elected Hitler and then he became their Fuhrer.

.
Trimming a post to center on what one wants to respond to is a common practice. Get over it. Some poster (you) trimmed my post #11. Did I complain? No.

You can trim my posts, as long as they don't contradict your interpretation of them in the very things you trimmed away.

So I ask you again in simpler terms: WHAT is it that you perceive that am I back peddling?

Was it my use of the phrase "tongue in cheek" that triggered you to say I was, in fact, not originally tonge-in-cheek but instead only changing my position on something (or backing down a bit on my position) for absolutely no reason (other than you unreasonably and back-handedly calling me "[one of those] skeptics" who are "lying" "shameful[ly]")?

So again: what did I "back down/peddle" on?

What was I too lukewarm on after for you? Because young criticizer, I can make the water Freeze and Boil!

An assertion without evidence that ignores Hitlers thoughts on Christianity he made in his personal library.

You invent stupid excuses that ignore the evidence. The only person with an agenda is you. But it's too much to expect a honest, objective answer from you.

Yet it is you who and your fellow Christians who need to lie all the time.

Except he visited the US BEFORE the atrocities began. Why do you need to invent all the time?

Moderator cut: Hateful remarks and the response are deleted.
