There's plenty of examples of bad Christians. I'd hate to throw the Hitler, Crusades, and Pedophile priest cards, but hey. Charles Manson's cult was based on Christian beliefs. The Catholic Church supported the government responsible for the Rwandan Genocide, and some priests even took part in it.

Stalin's Holodomor was not orchestrated to eliminate Christians in the Ukraine because Stalin was atheist. Instead, the Holodomer was a politically motivated attempt to sanction the Ukraine and put a damper on Ukrainian nationalism.

Wait, now where else have we heard of countries using sanctions...............

Have I written a single syllable about atheism?

Can you prove that anyone is a Christian?

The Greatest Killer
Fair one, John. I'm your fan today, if not other days, LMAO.

Atheism may not have killed more people, but it certainly has a good hand in mass murder.

The Bolsheviks were all atheists. Atheism is central to socialism and communism.

And the first thing they tried to enforce in Russia post the Romanovs was the total destruction of the orthodox church.

Why live in self-denial? No need for apologetics.

All religions have killed. Atheism has too. So quit biotching and moaning and get some kleenex

Sure, to a reasonable degree of certainty.

Atheism is not a religion. But then you know that, don't you. You just like trolling.

I didn't club atheism with other religions. You saw it, I wrote two "separate" sentences.

It's not my fault that the Bolsheviks were atheists.

Relax

It really sucks we got off the wrong foot, spotted. It's so unfortunate. I'm such a ladies man in offline life.

The whole article, linked in the OP is an attack on Atheism..I see no good discussion coming from this as has already been proven in most of the posts here...
With that in mind I believe we can rest this one..
Anyone who opened the link would also see that the OP did not state his opinion but gave a snippet and a link to the article
