Why do you post this stupid crap?

Are you really just trying to look like a badass or are you trying to make this site even more filled?

I would agree. There is no factual arguement for each of those. They are just statements.

I could make several similar statement about no1likesme.
1) he is dishonest
2) he is a liar
3) he is short
4) he is unattractive

and on and on... but just because I say thats my opinion (and its not but I'm making a point) doesn't make it true!!!!


These are someone opinions that doens't seem to know much about Christianity.

I grew up Roman Catholic (chatecism, alter boy, etc.) and live with a very devoutly religious person and can see truth with everyone of these points.

You have to look not only at what happens today, but look throughout history. Christianity is not as innocent as some may think.

Thank you for this link.

First of all, you can't characterise all Christianity as Roman Catholic. That is a denomination of Christianity that is still very traditional. And if you can see truth in each of these, I would say your view of true Christianity is very distorted.

Second, what do you mean Christianity isn't innocent? Thats a bizare statement when you think about it. Some of the people that claim to follow Christianity have done some stupid things that go AGAINST the teachings of Christianity, but Christianity itself is not the cause of these terrible acts. Its people who have distorted the truth and in many cases used it as a weapon to enslave others. You could say the same thing about any train of thought or any religion.

Christianity brings freedom, not slavery. Its a relationship with God, not a bunch of rules to follow.

Okay whatever

20. Christianity borrowed its central myths and ceremonies from other ancient religions


Explain to me how this means you should or shouldn't follow Christianity and actually it is a fact, but its pretty meaningless. Its like saying Obama is Black.

The problem with Christianity is it's represented by Christians. Christians are people, and most people are stupid.
