Tell me more about how hard it is

Comments like this one drive me nuts.

I am so sorry you guys feel this way. If we want to believe in God there is nothing you can do or ever do to stop us. You think it is so easy for you to think it is easy being a Christian but do you ever stop and think how many people actually hate us. If you think we are stupid you have the right, I could care less. It takes a person with a lot of bravery to sit down and know that becoming a Christian you will be hated by 95% of the people on this earth, that is if you openly admit it. I know that you will be stating in your next post on here that I am a retard… So what, the world is not the greatest place to live. There will always be people that hate us. It says so in the bible and thus your hate for me makes my belief stronger because it says that people, like you, will hate people, like me, in the bible. Oh and another thing you cant control there will be someone praying for you tonight. God bless :P

You’re so sorry?  And yet, you proceed to gloat.  How’s that humility and not bearing false witness thing working out?

If we want to believe in God there is nothing you can do or ever do to stop us.

Wrong.  Tons of people who deconvert want to believe in god.  They fear the ostracism and social consequences that exist because of Christians in this country – yet they cannot help their slipping faith.  That’s because people don’t choose their beliefs.  You can no more believe in someone rising from the dead (given the proper facts) than you can make yourself believe gravity doesn’t work (even if you want to).

And we have two very important advantages: our position is reasonable and the Christian proposition is ridiculous.  The Christian advantage comes with their willingness to propagate their beliefs by immoral means (if you want to call it an advantage).

You think it is so easy for you to think it is easy being a Christian…

Yup.

…but do you ever stop and think how many people actually hate us.

In the United States, where you’re the handy majority?  I’m going to go with, “Not as nearly as many as atheists.”

Can Christians run for office?  Well yes, in fact it’s virtually impossible for a public atheist to get elected.

Do your conferences have red name tags to warn others against posting pictures of some attendees, because they’re too scared to be “out”?

No?  Then you’ve come to the wrong place for sympathy.  But go ahead, tell me how hard the majority has it.

If you think we are stupid you have the right, I could care less.

I think your beliefs are stupid.  They are.  And if you don’t care if your beliefs are stupid, that says volumes about what religion can do to your priorities.

I could care less. It takes a person with a lot of bravery to sit down and know that becoming a Christian you will be hated by 95% of the people on this earth, that is if you openly admit it.

Given that 31-35% of the global population is Christian, that means the vast majority of Christians hate themselves.

That, or it means you’re making shit up and then expecting me to treat your opinions seriously.  Weren’t you just griping about how unfair it was for people to think you’re stupid?

And “if you openly admit it”?  Yes, look at how brave almost every member of congress is.  Look at how bold the preponderance of the US population is.  I dream of a day when Christians can walk the streets in broad daylight.

I know that you will be stating in your next post on here that I am a retard…

Sadly, no.  Religion has the ability to convince people with actual functioning brains that opinions like the drivel you’re leaking are credible.  In religion the virtue is in just believing, not on whether or not what you’re believing makes sense.  That’s why it’s a liability for you, for any other person, and the subject of so much scorn from people like me.

So what, the world is not the greatest place to live.

I’m a fan.  Got evidence for the heaven to which you’re alluding?  Because you didn’t include it in your comment.

There will always be people that hate us.

There will certainly always be people annoyed by you.  I imagine wherever there are people annoyed by irrationality treated like a virtue.

It says so in the bible and thus your hate for me makes my belief stronger because it says that people, like you, will hate people, like me, in the bible.

Note  to self when writing my next holy book: include a line that says others will hate you for running around telling others they’re going to burn for all eternity.  By jove, I’m a prophet.

I should also include a command to move to some place where you’re the majority and then piss and moan about how hated my followers are to the minority, which has almost no governmental representation.

Oh and another thing you cant control there will be someone praying for you tonight. God bless :P

Like masturbating without the fun.  I’ll be having unmarried sex.

Unlike most Christians, I’m not out to control the behavior of people who aren’t me.  Also, have fun turning “I’ll pray for you” into an epithet while pretending that I’m the one smearing your religion.
