ANd who is the arbitor of “crazy behavior”? You?
You have the right to hate religion all you want - and I join you there on many points.
But your outright blind hatred of ALL things religion is a sign of zealotry of a different sort.
What makes your zealotry acceptable to you, while pretty much reaming those of faith?
Are you that scared of us?
I’m not scared and I do not hate you nor christianity.
This is the last time I stress this cause it’s getting pointless.
The whole concept of “you hate-we hate-they hate” comes , most of the time, from the zealots mouths.
You can call me that if you like. But I really don’t see why I’m a hater.
Is it, perhaps, because debating without calling names or libel could lead to an actual exchange of arguments, where someone could -gasp- leanr something or -doublegasp- change his opinion?
And yes, you can, to a certain degree, tell that certain mannerisms and devotional patterns are outright crazy.
Like the story I told you- the one of Abram and his son- is crazy.
Mr. A. wants to kill his son for his good lord. Who in turn shows his generosity through stopping his hand in the last moment.
And this is taught to children.
I mean- how much crazier can you get?
Tell me, is this not insanity, or what?
So yes, while there are shades of grey, some of these teachings are definitely crazy and dangerous.
The shouldn’t be taught to the young and the uneducated. By doing this you create a bizarre society which, with one hand, navigates through the internet using hight technology which wouldn’t be possible if everyone would be a 100% christian, while the other hand is smacking a juvenile for sinning.
Leave the fairy tales behind while you can.
