Bill Maher on OBL and Christianity

how are you force fed?

I guess "force-fed" is a poor choice of words, but i think i know what he is trying to describe, and it is something that pretty much all people who are agnostic or atheist go through.

If you tell someone that you are agnostic or atheist, it changes they're opinion of you. All the sudden, you are either a monster, or you are a "lost soul". The latter being the worst because it is annoying as hell when I know more about the history of the Bible, and the scripture within than the the person trying to teach me about it does, but he still feels the need to preach to me.

The whole time, I either feel like walking away, or even if I do feel like sharing why I am not a believer, a christian will never understand or accept the points you are trying to get across about contradiction in the scripture, or stuff that it says that is flat out wrong. Or you end up getting the whole "faith" lecture that just goes around in a circle.

Nothing makes me feel like an autonomous person quite like a billboard commanding me to think for myself.

I'll take any billboard asserting itself over the govt. asserting itself any day of the week.

That's all very interesting information.

Basically he says if you are a Christian, you cannot applaud the OBL killing. Oh, and he rips Obama too, just so you don't feel the need to curl up in a ball and suck your thumb after watching.

Only Christians that value what Jesus alone says can't applaud OBL killing. But most Christians I know ignore the majority of what Jesus says, they say they look at the bible as a whole that's why they don't actually live the extreme lifestyle Jesus commands. The Christians in my life are the most bloodthursty, in-compassionate, close minded people I know. they must be picking and choosing at that moment from the OT regarding war, politics, revenge etc. However I'm sure when I question them on how violent their religion is they will start quoting Jesus scriptures. :rolleyes:

Didn't watch, but I read the thread. I thought all the celebrations at Times Square and the WH was a disgrace to America. Matter of fact, when I said so here on a few of the threads I was call a non patriot and one poster even said "This is what is wrong with the US."

Isn't the flip side true tho? You don't think the moment somebody says they believe etc, people re think spending time with them or mock them behind their back or snicker?

I see this in the corporate world moreso than the agnostic getting a raw deal. I purposely don't wear crosses or having religious jargon on stuff I own or have at work. Because I understand human nature. Somebody sees one shred of that and start to sterotype or judge or put that person in a box.

I like when I'm hanging with somebody and they are so comfortable speaking their mind that they "bash" christians and they go so what to do you think? Umm, well, I'm that person you just dogged. But then that opens up some great conversations.

As a great poet once said, People are people, so why should it be...
