- One might suppose that a religious person, i.e., a Christian,
cannot be a good American, as stated in an article on Rense.Com recently
by an entity which calls itself, "No Religion.Com." Of course,
this writer believes not one word of it. Just the concept, the very though
of iterating this statement makes me wonder why in the hell such dishonorable
people are allowed to exist. Oh don't get me wrong. It's still a free country
with freedoms a little worse for wear, but freedom of speech still rules.
- The article provides that a Christian's allegiance is
to God. The implication being that since this is so, a Christian cannot
have any allegiance to his country. Yet our Founders made use of God in
the very structure of our Constitution. Allegiance to God appears in virtually
every document written, forming a foundation for the fact that allegiance
to God implies allegiance to America. I suppose, using the argument by
NoRelgion.Com, our Founding Fathers and the entity called the United States
of America, is therefore, not valid?
- Using the argument given by NoReligion.com is unreasonable.
It doesn't hold water.
- Further, that the writer(s) truly do not understand Christianity
is self evident. The article reads, " ... no, because his allegiance
to Christianity forbids him to make friends with Muslims or Jews."
The very foundations of Christianity stated by Jesus Himself, is to love
thy neighbor as thyself. Love is the very foundation of Christianity and
to state that Christians are 'forbidden" to befriend Muslims and Jews
is ludicrous in the extreme.
- When did this happen to Christianity? I Must not have
been paying attention: " ... no, because he must submit to his spiritual
leaders, who teach annihilation of all who do not share their faith."
Christianity does not teach any such nonsense. Christianity has in the
past, made the mistake of attempting to convert early cultures, especially
indigenous cultures, to it's own beliefs. But to 'annihilate'? No. And
we've made other mistakes. Many. We learn from them. Christians are not
the fundamentalist entities which are explicitly decribed in this trash.
- Tolerance. Separation of Church and State. The Christian
God being neither loving nor kind. These are some of the lies told in this
story of intolerance to Christianity.
- We at Morty's Cabin believe that this article is the
antithesis of what it claims, vis a vis Christianity, and in fact, is a
mirror, reflecting all the arguments stated right back to this group of
- The rules of engagement in any debate require that truth
be stated. Oft times, one's truth, which may not be absolute, is used in
the debate. However this is the reason it is called a 'debate.' So that
one may refute someone's truth as not being absolute with the absolute
- This article is a page of lies, innuendo and outright
fabrications, demonstrating the level of culpable stupidity of NoReligion.Com.
