Christians don't realize how weak...

...their belief actually is.

First of all, these people aren't born believing in God.
They only believe in Christ because their forefathers told them to!
If I whip you half to death, you can be sure I can make you stop believing in God!

Furthermore, church-going people are extremely annoying.
They use this 'God' scenario as an excuse to oppress their children, and make them live in a totalitarian dimension.

I see no redeeming qualities in going to church. Non-christians need to band together and demand the elimination of this ridiculous custom.

Was hoping this was going to say “...worshipping Trump makes them look”. Then we might have a thread.

So, this COULD be a fun thread, but a lot of this runs amok with the "no blanket generalizations about people in the religous/politics forum".

Let's pretend for a second that this isn't just a threadcrap and there's actual discussion to be had. So let's take out the "these people are annoying" part.

Why single out Christians? You could say this about any religion, any belief. Heck, you could have probably said this about Trump (these people aren't born believing in Trump, etc. etc.) and this thread wouldn't be locked as soon as a mod finds it.

I am curious what exactly passes this test: you need to be born believing it, it can't be taught by anyone, and no amount of torture could remove it from you.

I would guess, if the poster is from the US, it's just the religion he sees most often trying to push their lifestyle on to everyone else via our government.

No religion would pass that, and that's probably his point? Things like hunger, thirst, procreation are mostly innate.

Re: Christians don't realize how weak...

Star Trek fans don’t realize how weak their belief actually is.

First of all, these people aren't born loving Star Trek.
They only believe in Shatner because their forefathers told them to!
If I whip you half to death, you can be sure I can make you stop liking Star Trek. !

Furthermore, Star Trek fans are extremely annoying.
They use this 'Roddenberry’ scenario as an excuse to waste time and money away from their family, and make them live in a totalitarian dimension where an ever present Star Fleet rules the universe.

I see no redeeming qualities in going to Trek conventions. Non-trekkers need to band together and demand the elimination of this ridiculous show and its customs.

I'm saying no belief would pass that, not just religion. You are right about innate things, though.

I think there are people who claim that their religion is innate though. That somehow, even if they hadn't grown up in a religious family, they would have found their way to the light eventually because it was predestined or something like that.

I think it is innate. Every culture in the world grew its own religion, from the Hopi, to the Irish Celts, to the Kalahari, to Papua New Guinea. You might even argue that having a non-religious populace is a 20th century experiment.

Hmm, maybe I would believe that the yearning for there to be a higher power in life, might be innate for some people. But not a specific one.

Have Trekkies, sorry, I mean Trekkers, ever killed people based on their love of the show. If not I don't see the comparison.

Damn that pesky 1st Amendment....and it’s the freaking first one. Almost like our forefathers thought it important or something.

From The Rules:

- No party bashing/generalizations: Posts like "liberals are smarter than conservatives" or "conservatives are more moral than liberals" do nothing to forward the discourse we are trying to have here, not to mention the majority of the time these types of generalizations are speculation, opinon, or outright false. If you are trying to make a specific point, like "[liberals or conservatives] favor ________" please back up the supposition w/ links to articles/polls/sites that support the point you are trying to make.
