    I think that from now on I'll use the atheist methods of debate.

    I'm not going to be nicer than Jesus anymore. 😛

    Well then I guess you are no longer a Christian. Jesus quite clearly taught that you should not 'do as the Romans do' but should rather turn the other cheek.

    But if you thought you were nicer than Jesus in the past, then I dread to think what we are in for now.

    I'm invoking the Romans 12:8 rule now.

    "If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men."

    My back is against the wall. You know what happens when you corner a rat don't you?

    We are human and can be better than that. Answering violence with violence only breeds more violence. It is often better to look for a peaceful solution.

    Actually, Jesus got angry and overturned money changers, and whipped people. There is a righteous anger, that the world today considers mean and cruel, but it is not.

    Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
    To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up [that which is] planted;
    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

    Yeah, atheist logic! Yes is no, right? Or was that 'no means yes', I keep forgetting.
