After lying and making false claims fail, there is always the fall back position. Try to scare the shit out of them. Seems just about right.
One of the thing I despise most about Christianity and Christians. The way they try to capitalize on tragedy, on the wretchedness of so many. Who were most of the earliest converts? The poor and wretched who had nothing; the rich who had too much and were empty inside. What did Hitchens say about Mother Teresa? She wasn’t a friend of the poor, she was a friend of poverty.
As if atheists don’t capitalize on tradgedy. Every time something big happens in the news you can see guys like Loftus posting a series of ranting posts.
He knows this pumps up his blog stats. He won’t deny it.
Hitchens was a drunker war monger and apologist for the Bush Wars. You couldn’t wipe out enough Muslims to keep him and guys like “Mecca Option” Harris happy.
Thank you for being perfect.
You forgot that he was also wrong about women being funny. However, he was brilliant in his support of atheism, and I will continue to quote him wherever appropriate.
Remember that Loftus is writing largely for the religious. One of the reasons I don’t read him anymore.
Chairman Mao’s policies led to millions of deaths and the decimation of Chinese culture, therefore all of his quotes and ideas, such as “In time of difficulties, we must not lose sight of our achievements,” and “Enable every woman who can work to take her place on the labor front, under the principle of equal pay for equal work,” are to be thrown in the trash.
See how that works now?
As we all know, Hitler ate sugar, so sugar must be bad.
