| You keep repeating yourself without substantiating what you are saying. I know full well that you believe that Christianity is the harbinger of death, what I don't understand is why. I used my examples of examining Judaism and Islam alongside Christianity to demonstrate the fallacy in your logic by claiming one is a destructive force and not all three. You have thus far failed demonstrate a single example of evil committed by religion. And you will continue to gaily, principally because there never truly has been one. Religion's purpose in conflict is to serve as a motivator and nothing more.|
Besides, you claim to be a Communist. How can you quantify that with the evil things communist regimes have done yet argue test religion is intrinsically a cause of conflict? By your own logic, the system you put your faith in is every buy as evil, and arguably substantially worse.
Your Hitler example is terrible, too. I'm not arguing that Hitler wasn't responsible ot the Holocaust in this example, I wild be arguing that Fascism wasn't. Which is quite accurate. And there goes Godwin's Law. I also struggle to see any tangible link between Nazism and Christianity in terms of belief system. Surely ultranationalism entirely contradicts the very principles of Christianity. Also, if your going to biologically try and blame Christianity for the Holocaust, then surely I can use the same logic to blame atheism for the Great Purges?
Christianity has the largest following in the world, and inspires much more than anything. You have retards like Rick Santorum, to asinine cult followings like the Westboro Baptist Church.
Islam is a destructive force through Muslim extremists and constant attacks on Israel. Judaism does nothing, and has done nothing since it was almost destroyed in Europe, along with far before that.
I have said many examples of evils, but your protective attitude towards it gives you the notion that it is perfectly okay for it to exist.
And I can say the same about Capitalism. Communism has only risen within the last century, and already are we criticised. What of the Salem Witch Trials, and the destruction of Native American culture? Not to mention slavery. It seems all Capitalists do is pick on lesser beings and governments when they themselves can't hold an equal society with the influence of the so-called "Invisible Hand". The Great Purge was a result of Stalin's alcoholism.
