    For the presumptuous folk, who have nothing better to do than to make jeering, ridiculing, snide and sarcastic remarks about something they have no intention of understanding (except perhaps for the purpose of getting more ammunition to help with the bashing).

    Uhm?.. Naaa, when you say "christian bashing"? Is that a christian bashing or an unspecified group of non-christians - well, thereby specified as non-christians - bashing christians? Duuuh?... 😕

    In that case I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. I am a non-christian by choice, and I don't feel like I'm making fun of christians. 😕

    Am I?..

    Sure, the bible I have been known to bash on a few times. Also, I may have referred to a literal believer as a bonehead. But, that's merely stating the facts. I think. 🙄

    Besides, there's absolutely no mutual admiration between those of us who doesn't believe in the bible literally. Most of them admire me, but I have absolutely no admiration for anyone else. 😀

    And it's no wonder I'm admired, either. A 1-year old putting together sentences like this (not even my native language, you understand) and playing chess on the 1500 rating level has got to be admired by any standard. 😵

    Yup, I'm cute. 😏

    Christianity attracts more attention than other religions, because its followers have this crazy idea that they should go out and convert people to the faith. When was the last time you saw a thread like, "Convert to Islam before it's too late!!" or, "Only Judaism can save you!". Or, imagine a blindfaith101-type poster: "THE WORD OF YHVH".

    Christianity has the loudest followers, and there is no middle ground with evangelicals or fundamentalists. You are either with their faith, or damned to hell for all eternity. I bet the moderate christians sure hate getting lumped in with these guys.

    Snide remarks are made from both sides of aisle. Rather than taking them personally, consider that the uncompromising positions on both sides practically force the issue to become personal.

    Actually, it depends very much where you hang out on the net. I have seen plenty of these posts myself.

    Nice. I have no beef with civil non-Christians such as yourself. I guess I started this thread in a rage of indignation -- all gone now.

    Yeah. I kinda like my old avatar better.

    I know the feeling. It's what I experience when encountering boneheaded bible-literalists. It may stand in direct relation to my own stubbornness, but I refuse to believe that.
