Lies and hypocrisy!

Yesterday and today I got into a discussion with a theist and was reminded why I can’t stand them! Have you ever heard this one before? “If you don’t believe in God then why do you talk about him so much?” I talk about him because your silly and inane beliefs are not something that you keep to yourselves. As your churches history shows you try to force feed your insanity to everyone else and go to great lengths to make your lies acceptable and true. Your church affects our countries laws and if it can’t get us through voluntary submission it does so through legislation. It tries to use its power to influence the politics through the manipulation of politicians of our country. Your religion demands that politicians should vote with the cross on their sleeves. Like a good Christian they are expected to vote against a woman’s right to decide whether or not she wants to have an abortion or not.

16There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:17haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,18a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil,19a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”

Christians are a living contradiction in that they are pathological liars and see nothing wrong with it when it is done in order to promote their illogical and insane beliefs. Creationist web sites propagate all sorts of lies in order to try and rationalize the irrational.  They make claims in the name of science as if true scientists supported their insane assumptions. 

It never ceases to amuse me how hypocritical you have to be to be a Christian! The text I have quoted above is from Proverbs 6:16-19 and is more than fitting of an example on what I am about to discuss. The bible states that there are six things that the Lord hates and as shown it tells you what those six things are, but when you look back at the churches history it has done all of those things in order to establish itself! 

It was during the crusades and the various inquisitions that men, women, and children were mercilessly slaughtered to establish political as well as religious dominance. There has been so much bloodshed and senseless loss of life to promote a belief system that is patently false. In the name of Jesus the church has become one of the richest enterprises in the world with its very own form of government. They have confiscated the property of so called heretics and non-believers during the Crusades and have built their empire with deceit, robbery, and torture. 

What pisses me off the most is that they claim that they are a not for profit organization! Nothing could be further from the truth. The church rakes in millions of tax free dollars from their various enterprises and donations of its parishioners. The Vatican is a shining example of the hypocrisy that is rampant in the Christian community. A city unto itself the Vatican is literally bathed in gold! I was watching a news report on the vestments of the Pope and was shocked to find out that some of those outfits are actually sown with real gold thread! Not too shabby for a poor non-profit organization. You can read a pretty good and informative article about the Popes vestments here

Supposedly lying is a sin, in fact, that bible says it is one of those things that the good Lord hates! But when you think about Christianity you immediately notice that the entire belief system is based on lies. God is just, good, merciful, loving, etc. Yet he makes hell for the Satan and his angels and anyone else who doesn’t accept him as their master through believing in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is not a demonstration of compassion or forgiveness it is a demonstration of tyranny. The option to worship God is not really a choice, it is a demand! It says worship me or this will be your fate for all eternity!

  2. Wow. Everything u've said here should be canonized and inserted into the new testament.

  3. There's virtually no proof of anything loving in the Bible. God gives Abraham a son... then tells him to kill him. God spares Lot's family from destruction, then turns the wife into a pillar of salt and lets the daughters get him drunk and have sex with him. Jesus casts demons out of people, then instead of killing them, he sends them into pigs and the pigs commit suicide by drowning. What kind of love is this?

  4. “If you don’t believe in God then why do you talk about him so much?”

    Not only have I heard this many times, it was just posted to one of my Huffington Post comments.
    Unfortunately, as is often the case with the HuffPost, my retort was not approved for publication.
