Why have the mass murderers and terrorists of recent time been atheists and have liberal ideology? Columbine killers, Norway terrorist, Virginia tech shooter, holocaust museum shooter, colorado dark knight rises shooter, jared loughner, every single one militant atheist. Atheists pushing for moral relativism in place of traditional biblical morality can be blamed. When is the last time a bible believing church going Christian shot up a high school or a movie theater???
Ever heard of The Inquisition? The Crusades? The burning of the Library of Alexandria? The Reconquista? 30 Years War?
Point is, being Christian alone doesn't make you a good person, nor do you need a book to tell you how to be a good person.
Bill Belichick on "putting the tape on"
As Rob pointed out, the large majority of mass murderers are religious folk. Jonestown, McVeigh, and that ****tard in Waco come to mind right away. Also, Columbine was not the lone school shooting. These things have happened with less media believe it or not. There was one in Kentucky and I would bet a large sum that kid was a Christian. In fact, most homicides in the US are committed by christians given the fact most people claim to be christians in this country.
And you can go back to most major wars.... almost all of them over religion. Alot of murders are directly blaimed on god by the nutbags who pull them off. Hell, a lot of these lunatics try to use that **** as an excuse in court...... God told them to do it.
How bout those pathetic women who kill their kids. They are mostly all weak and religious. Drown their kids in lakes n **** then blame it on god. What about John List? He killed his whole family and wrote a note saying it was for their own benefit because they would go to heaven sooner. His excuse for not killing himself and instead getting a fake identity, moving to Colorado, remarrying and having a new life and job out there while evading capture....... you guessed it..... he said if he committed suicide god would not forgive him and he wouldve gone to hell. Instead he would get to reunite with his family in heaven because god would forgive him for murdering them. You cant make this **** up.
David Koresh is responsible for the death of 54 adults and 28 children.
Michael Bray conspired to bomb abortion clinics in Washington DC and Maryland.
Matthew Hale attempted to solicit the murder of a Judge.
Paul Jennings Hill was an ordained minister who went to an abortion clinic in Pensacola and MURDERED a doctor and his bodyguard POINT BLANK RANGE.
Jim Jones is known for the mass suicide of 909 people including over 200 children. All of these people were forced to ingest cyanide.
All of these men...Christians.
The point of your OP was to point the finger at an Atheist. I am not defending James Holmes at all. But I am defending the Atheist community. You can't tell me that the Atheist community is bad because of one crazy person. Crazy people reside in all communities.
