if you see photos like that. and there are many. what goes in your mind? for me, it is like a reminder from God to "straighten your act".

i brought this topic up in lieu of recent earthquakes/natural disasters that happen recently.

What would your thinking be if, say, a pagan temple or statue was spared instead?

You missed that the central character of worship is still standing; didnít you? To the secular humanist that is known as, canít see the forest for the trees syndrome. Scripture refers to it as spiritual blindness.

Err what about the bits of not making graven images, I guess the gawd you worship has foregone that commandment in lieu of the fact every xian seems to ignore that now with all the jeezuz statues we see all over.

Pretty stupid IMO if you think that this is somehow proof of xian delusions. Just a refresher in case you missed it...
Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
In plain (even olde) English, there is no way that commandment can be misconstrued to allow for jeezuz statues.

Even your traditional symbol of the cross is a symbol of torture. When it comes down to brass tacks, all xians glory in teh suffering of their god, like goodonya to get-some-of your-own-too no?

Oh I forgot, you no longer are under the law except for condemning gays - silly me.

I find it interesting how when your attention was drawn to the symbol of the God you are convinced does not exist you were offended and started sounding more like Sadducees than Atheists. Are you guys absolutely sure you are Atheists?

Again, Iím amazed at how much time you guys spend on a subject you say is no more real than a flying purple people eater.
