Some theists accuse us of "Hating God" and "Hating Christians".
There are so many reasons for such hatred (from Dispatches from the Culture Wars):
“When I, or people like me, are running the country, you’d better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we’ll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed.”
“I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good…Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country. We don’t want equal time. We don’t want pluralism.”
“Our goal must be simple. We must have a Christian nation built on God’s law, on the ten Commandments. No apologies.”
“I don’t think Christians should use birth control. You consummate your marriage as often as you like – and if you have babies, you have babies.”
“There is going to be war, [and Christians may be called to] take up the sword to overthrow the tyrannical regime that oppresses them.”
The sad thing is, liberal apologists claim that Terry is not typical, not correct. I don't know about you, but when I read many of the pronouncements of the Biblical Jesus (mythical or not) I don't get a lot of love. Certainly not in "Paul" either.
So...why should we love this religion of darkness?
