I am sick of people trying to constantly bag religion to me all the time. I am not forcing anyone to give a **** about my beliefs. I don't bang on about Atheists do I?

I really don't care if you are trying to force your beliefs on anyone or not. Religion as a whole is nothing but ****.
If you don't want to be associated with the term than denounce your religion and just have faith. It is as simple as that.

If I'm not under a religion that follows God and Jesus Christ, then what am I having faith in?

You are being really rude, telling me my opinion is worthless and that I should drop my religion because YOU don't agree with it. Really mature. Sounds to me like you're forcing your ideals on me.

So you really have to be apart of Christianity to have faith in your God and Jesus Christ? You know the two are completely different correct? I know plenty of people who believe in God, but do not call themselves Christians for various personal reasons. Does that mean they do not have faith in God? No it does not.
Also I never said drop your religion because you do not agree with me. Read it again please.

Again, accept that I want to be a Christian and don't tell me what to do.

Okay so you want to be apart of a cult, but do not like when what you are apart of is called a cult when infact it meets the definition just about perfectly. Okay fair enough. Also I guess you support the sexual abuse cover ups as well.

With me faith is fine, but religion is not and I would hope in the near future religion is completely destroyed, but I do not see that happening anytime soon if at all during my life time.

Stop being an arrogant a$$hole. All religions are not "cults." The word "cult" is culturally relative, so stop calling Vanilla's religion a cult.

While you are entitled to your opinion, it is not your place to tell someone to denounce their religious beliefs in order to apease your view of the world.

We get it, you hate religion. But that does not give you the right to bash other people's views. Religious people construct their entire lives around their beliefs, so you belittling and vilifying them is quite hurtful. You are being quite rude, and should stop to think what consequences may come from your actions. Reilgious or not, if you're an a$$hole, you'll get what's coming to you.

I completely respect your opinion and would appreciate if you respect mine. I never said I accept the negative parts of the church, but remember it is man that has sinned under the label of this religion, not God himself.

Oojay, thanks for the support hun but please refrain from insulting others, just report offensive posts instead. Thanks xxx

Buzzov*en is just an atheist crusader. But unlike Christian crusaders, he stops short of seiging your town and violently killing all the non-believers. He just uses words, not so bad.

i think you're all going round and round in circles

kinda pointless debating on things which cannot be proven nor unproven

i prefer debating crop circles

Yes I agree with you there, but unlike Christian crusaders I'm not seiging towns either. Or sexually abusing children. It's not like other people who follow different religions have been perfect either. Doesn't stop people joining together in a community to share their faith.

If he's going to use words, he needs to be less superior and more clear on his point.
