Cape Town – A group of protesters have gathered outside Big Concerts’ office building in Gardens, Cape Town to take a stand against Lady Gaga performing in South Africa.
This gathering follows a protest that was held by the South African Council of Churches in Pretoria last week.

A picture of the group of protesters was posted by eNCA news reporter Paula Chowles on Twitter.

The receptionist at Big Concerts’ offices in Cape Town, who wished to remain unnamed, told Channel24 that protesters arrived at approximately 10:30 on Friday morning.

“There are about 30 protesters. They did notify us that they will be coming,” she said.

According to her, this was the first time they had encountered protesters at their offices, and Big Concerts COO John Langford’s personal assistant had gone down to meet with the protesters.

Exponential growth of Satanism

The protesters used placards to show their anger towards Lady Gaga touring South Africa at the end of November and December, adding to the strong stance the South African Council of Churches have taken on Lady Gaga’s pending tour.

A peaceful march was held on Friday 9 November to the department of Arts and Culture in Pretoria, where the South African Council of Churches handed over a written request to have Lady Gaga banned from South Africa.

Heat magazine reported on Twitter that the request was signed by the chief director of Arts and Culture, Duduzile Nchoba.

Reverend Mxolisi Sonti, secretary of the youth forum, told the daily newspaper Beeld they are afraid of the extent of Satanism in South Africa at this time, and that Gaga’s visit could lead to an exponential growth in Satanism.

Ek hou daarvan hoe die ouens geen ruggraat het nie – na 25 jaar sien hy steeds nie die Lig nie – dis jammer.Oja, sy nuwe geloof se naam is maar net “Atheism” en “Humanism” – wat de hel humanism ook beteken. En nou’s hy kwansuis maar net weer “sendeling” vir die nuwe geloof. Kan julle verstaan hoekom ek ape soos hy nie ernstig kan opneem nie?

For instance, take Ray McCauley – and I’m not saying he’s not a Christian, but I have some serious doubts about that – just that he has a financial motive, and that is very wrong.

      • Lady Gaga demons take one look at Johannesburg, go back to Hell

        As South African Christians brace themselves for Lady Gaga’s concert in Johannesburg tonight, her entourage has revealed that there is no cause for alarm. “Yes, we opened a portal to Hell when we did sound-checks this morning,” confirmed a spokesroady. “But the demons took one look at Joburg and went straight back to Hell. They’ll take damnation over Dainfern any day.”

        Christians have been vocal in their opposition to the tour by the pop icon, saying that she would unleash a wave of satanic, satanistic and satanicalist activities amongst the youth.

        “Truly, it was prophesied in the Book of Cheryl, transcribed by her daughter, the Prophet Mandy, who could type fast because she went to secretarial college,” explained protestor, Candy McTwitchy.

        She said that she and her fellow-believers were delighted that Gaga’s “backing doo-wop girls of sin” had fled back to their fiery home, and said it was vindication of their aesthetics.

        “We’ve always had a theory that certain kinds of architecture and urban planning pleases God and frightens demons,” she said. “Basically, if you make your houses and your neighbourhood look like something from the Holy Land – face-brick, paved yards, short palm trees standing in dead yellow grass – it makes God feel at home, and makes demons poep their broeks.”

        Asked what kind of urban environment demons liked, she answered, “New York, Cape Town, and anywhere else where homosodomites are allowed to flaunt their buttocks in public.”

        According to one of the demons that had fled shrieking back to the Abyss, there was nothing specific about Johannesburg and the greater Gauteng region that they had found diabolical.

        “It’s just more of general impression of overwhelming, soul-destroying kakness,” it said. “Yes, the architecture is horrible – if it’s not depressed, shabby-genteel 1950s blah, it’s nouveau riche McMansions with rent-a-tree ‘gardens’ in permanent shade from the 10-foot high walls – but it’s also the highways, the billboards, the traffic, Midrand…”

        Meanwhile, Lady Gaga says she is grateful to the founding fathers and city planners of Gauteng, “and everyone else who worked so hard to make this region so incredibly ugly”.

        “It’s going to be such a nice change not to have demons flapping around my face and getting tangled up in my wig during my set,” she enthuses. “Plus, they’re always in my trailer, crouched upside-down on the ceiling, growling Aramaic curses at me, which is a total buzz-kill. So thanks, Christians and aesthetic Philistines of Gauteng! I love you guys!”

    “Kan die een of ander geleerde here wat hulle so gereeld gesaghebbend in die rubriek Godsdiens Aktueel uitlaat, aan minder geleerde lesers soos ek antwoorde ten opsigte van die onderstaande verstrek? Wat is die verskil tussen ‘n gees en ‘n god?

    “Daar is verskillende geloofsoortuigings in die wêreld, bestaande uit ‘n swetterjoel geeste en /of gode of ander beweerde heiliges.

    “Om net een voorbeeld te gebruik: In die VSA is meer as 100 miljoen mense wat aanhangers van ‘n bepaalde gees is. Op hul geldnote verskyn diè woorde: “In God we Trust.” By geleentheid verklaar hulle of spreek hulle diè wens uit: “God bless America.”

    “As diè land nie steier van ‘n Katrina tot ‘n Irene of ‘n Sandy nie, word ‘n kwart van Kalifornië of Colorada deur ‘n brand verwoes. Dan is daar die gereelde sneeu- of draaistorms. Los Angeles wag vir ‘n aardbewing om hom te tref. Tienduisende Amerikaners sterf jaarliks gewelddadig op paaie, weens misdaad of in oorloë.

    “Sodra ‘n ramp hulle tref, vat hul gees egter die pad of staan arms gevou en toekyk. Hy (ons speel-speel hy bestaan werklik) en pres. Jacob Zuma behoort goed oor die weg te kom, want albei bly gewild ten spyte van hul onbetrokkenheid en nutteloosheid.”

Ergste van alles is dat die gotte hul eie skepsel straf/martel vir hul onvolmaaktheid. Die gotte is egter perfek volmaak, desnieteenstaande die feit dat hul ‘n onvolmaakte wese geskep het. Per definisie maak dit die gotte dus onvolmaak maar skynbaar pla dit geen godioot nie. Ens ens ens.-

        2) Vir beide is daar zero bewyse
        3) Beide word deur idiote aangehang ….wat bereid is om te glo sonder bewyse.
        4) Beide het te doen met ‘n sg “lewe na die dood” – jou gotte beloof vir jou ewige lewe en voorvadergeeste is “geeste wat voortleef nadat die persoon sterf”.
        5) In beide gevalle eis die outjies wat glo in die gotte en/of geeste dat ek respek vir hul lawwe gelofies moet betoon.

    • Johann, you revert to the position of “geloofsprong” as if there is something commendable in believing in something you cannot objectively prove. People who go to church but don’t really “believe” have been conditioned to obey the dictates of religion to fit in socially, whereas those who have had the “geloofsprong” do “believe” in whatever it is they have been led to believe. Both are bullshit positions except that the latter is worse than the former. You would have us believe that the conditioned are the sort of people who later become atheists – as if they ever believed in the first place. So yours is a circular argument in that you constantly revert to your own self-perceived position as believer in the unprovable.

Judas was invented by Roman Christians wanting to place the blame for the crucifixion on Jews. So what do we get? Christians and Jews polarised for two thousand years just by inventing Judas. Then we get Saint Paul, who said the husband is subordinate to Christ and the wife subordinate in turn to the husband, who alone may give the wife religious instruction. Christ said a divided house will fall. You cannot worship your spouse or anyone or anything else as a proxy for god. Thousands of “witches” got burnt at the stake – they still do – so the church could confiscate their property. The bullshit continues to this day and, frankly, some of us are tired of it.

The Christians needed to spread their faith among the Romans, and if they had blamed the Romans for the crucifixion they might have met with less success. To invent a Jewish scapegoat was therefore a convenient lie. I am not alone in this supposition. A lot of historians believe this too.

            holyshmoly, by your own admission here, you are making an assumption, and since your atheist religion is based on, let’s call it “the pillar of scientific proof”, you’re sketching yourself as a hypocrite here. Because if you don’t require proof that Julius Caesar existed, why do you require proof that Judas existed?!? To put it this way, you need a way of discrediting the historic facts recorded in the Bible, otherwise your atheistic beliefs will fall apart.

            Your atheistic agenda is very clear to me. You try to turn your belief that Judas didn’t exist into a fact and expect gullible people to just take your word for it, because you’re apparently some sort of historian.

            I’m not being unreasonable in demanding proof of this (it is after all a favorite atheist past-time to ask for proof for everything, so today I’m returning the favor). You can’t simply state that one historically recorded fact is true, while another is not – you need to provide proof. The fact that you’re “not alone in the supposition” means less than nothing. I’m not alone in mine either. It only means there are a couple of other okes believing the same nonsense. (And Malherbe, if you mention one word about “the onus is not on the atheist to provide proof”, I’m really going to bliksem you – get over that nonsense).

            moly, I can respect you for being a historian, for being a human that was created in God’s image, etc. But sorry, no respect for assumptions dished up as facts because of an atheist agenda.

            This is the typical “conspiracy theory stuff the internet is full of. You know, apparently mankind never landed on the moon, there’s some or the other “face” on mars, checking us humans out. I really enjoyed the series Stargate – you should watch it, if I were to believe that as fact, then most historic people are actually aliens…

          • Judas Did Not Exist

            Some people might be disturbed at the suggestion that Jesus did not exist, but surely all good people would be happily hopeful were they to hear an argument that very symbol of anti-Semitism has been nothing more substantial than an unhappy fiction. After reading Bishop John Shelby Spong’s Liberating the Gospels: Reading the Bible with Jewish Eyes some years ago I was naive enough to conclude that most biblical scholars (of the nonfundamentalist variety) were well aware of the evidence that Judas was nothing more than a literary creation. I would still like to think that is the case, and that those scholarly works that speak of Judas as a real person of history who in fact did betray his master really are an aberrant minority in the current field of Gospel scholarship.

            Don’t misunderstand, though. By no means does John Shelby Spong deny the historicity of Jesus.

            Is there then no literal history that is reflected at the heart of the Christian story? Yes, of course there is; but it is not found in the narrative descriptions of Jesus’ last days.

            But who was Judas?

            Was he a person of history who did all of the things attributed to him? . . .
            Or was there but a bare germ of truth in the Judas story, on which was heaped the dramatic portrait that we now find in the Gospels? Can we identify the midrashic tradition at work in the various details that now adorn his life? . . .
            Or was he purely and simply a legendary figure invented by the Christians as a way to place on the backs of the Jewish people the blame for the death of Jesus?

            The rest of the post follows Spong’s argument that Judas was created by “Christians [who] made Jews, rather than the Romans, the villains of their story. [Spong] suggest[s] that this was achieved primarily by creating a narrative of a Jewish traitor according to the midrashic tradition out of the bits and pieces of the sacred scriptures and by giving that traitor the name Judas, the very name of the nation of the Jews.”

            It may be possible to quibble over Spong’s use of the term “midrash”, which some scholars define as something that is known among the Dead Sea Scrolls but not quite found in the Gospels. But regardless of the term used, the identification of the details of the Judas narrative in the Hebrew Scriptures remains a telling argument that Judas was a literary creation of the Gospel authors.

            The post is in two parts. The first part here outlines the main argument for Judas being a late fictional creation and reflecting a mounting anti-semitism within the Church. The second part looks in more detail at the inconsistencies with which the different Gospels present the Judas narrative.

            The Meaning of “Iscariot”
            It has been suggested that Iscariot refers to Kerioth, a town presumably of Judas’s origin.

            But Spong writes that “today [published 1996] the weight of scholarship leans toward the [option that the name derives from sicarious, which means a political assassin].” (p. 259)

    • Get hold of this book, Hallucinations, by neurologist Oliver Sacks.

      “Hallucinations don’t belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people. People with failing eyesight, paradoxically, may become immersed in a hallucinatory visual world. Hallucinations can be brought on by a simple fever or even the act of waking or falling asleep, when people have visions ranging from luminous blobs of color to beautifully detailed faces or terrifying ogres. Those who are bereaved may receive comforting “visits” from the departed. In some conditions, hallucinations can lead to religious epiphanies or even the feeling of leaving one’s own body.”

Rule#2: Evolusion explain why you are here and why you gonna die – so loosen up and jump over the fence and skrew rule#1.

      • Uhm, no, evolution has NOT been proven as a fact. There’s still a huge amount of disagreement around it. However, it has been proven that the earth is “round”, yes, although not a perfect circle. Yes, it has been proven that the earth revolves around the sun. If evolution is proved correct today, it does not in any way contradict the Bible – I’m still amazed at how ppl reach that conclusion. Life in outer space has not been proven, although I’m certain it’s just a matter of time before it will be. That also does not contradict scripture. How does any of this possible contradict scripture?!? These misunderstandings come from the fact that us humans do not completely understand everything, we misunderstand science and we misunderstand scripture – there is no reason to believe that they contradict each other.

        Scientists should focus on science – to improve the lives of human beings. That’s one of the primary reasons mankind pursues science – to invent new things to improve our lives. Unfortunately, there are other reasons as well, such as to oppress other humans, etc. 😦 Scientists are very ill-equipped to give opinions of a religious nature – they are entirely out of there depth. And Christians should also not be against science, only against religious speculation by scientists. Such a pity that ppl, in this day and age can still not see that science has boundaries and that it’s not a religion.

        To build an atheist religion from science… what a poor imitation of the real thing. But ja, that’s a known tactic of the devil – imitates everything.

        • Here we go again. Rehashing items where he has been previously shown to be incorrect.

          – evolution is indeed a fact. The vast majority of scientific community agrees with this. The fact that they might disagree with certain inner workings/aspects of evolution is irrelevant and does not disprove the fact of evolution. As with the theory of gravitation or the building blocks of an atom, we still have a lot to learn about evolution.

          – evolution do not disprove the bible? Perhaps, according to Analfa, but many religiousminded people will vehemently disagree. It is religous people trying to ban evolution from schools. Why do they do this if not a threat to their dogma? Analfa?

          – “scientists should focus on science” – Exactly, and that’s what they generally do. You won’t find scientists running into a church telling everyone their skydaddy does not exist. Do godiots extend the same courtesy? No, they will forever stick their noses into areas that they typically know very little of.

          – “scientists are completely out of their depth regarding religious matter”: Agreed. Scientists focus on items that can be proven empirically. Since the existence of fairies, unicorns and skydaddies cannot be proven, science ignores these. However, if godiots cannot show some restraint and keep their grubby little paws from science through the usage of dogmatic arguments, they should not expect any mercy from scientific minded people in treating their dogma with the disdain it deserves.

          – atheism is not a religion – I have on many an occasion explained why.

  30. ANALFA THE AGNOSTIC

    Over the past months Analfa has persisted in labelling atheism as a religion. This, notwithstanding my efforts to explain to him that non-belief, by its pure definition does not equate to belief/religion. Amongst the arguments I used to explain to him the error of his rationale (if you could call it that) was that calling atheism a religion is like calling baldness a hair colour, or the non-playing of golf a sport. This analogy was obviously above his mental capability, because in the absence of any rational counter-argument he persisted in his erring, albeit comical ways.

    Another argument presented was the fact that surely Analfa does NOT believe in fairies or leprechauns or unicorns or Farther Xmast, etc. Following Analfa’s crooked way of thinking, one may therefore assume that these are all non-belief positions that he holds. From this we may deduct that our friend Analfa has numerous belief systems and therefore gods. I am not sure what one will label someone with many supernatural beliefs, but it seems that agnostic is the closest. (If someone knows of a more fitting definition, feel free to let me know.)

    In short: If Analfa can call atheism a religion, he is in effect stating that he is an agnostic. Welcome to our circle, Analfa!

And what’s even worse is when ppl who are not scientists, like the threesome on this blog, try to use science to disprove God – it’s really makes me laugh, actually, so pathetic is it.

                  Just remember, science is a tool that we use to improve our lives. Whether or not the theories are true or false (and they are often disproved decades later by other scientists) is irrelevant – as long as it’s accurate enough to help us come up with more useful theories to improve our lives.

                  Really, it’s about time you guys start to understand what science is and what it’s limits are and the fact that it has absolutely NOTHING to do with proving or disproving God’s existence.

        • Very interesting. You respect ppl with backbones – so do I.

          It reminds me in some way of this passage in the Bible (maybe you’ll relate to it): “Revelation 3:16
          So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. ”

          And it might surprise some people, but a lot of Christians have backbones and don’t condone every second thing, like my old buddies Malherbe, Savage and McBrolloks loves to do. They just “go with the flow”, “undercover atheists”, “closet atheists”, etc. You know, it’s the easy way…

          You label yourself an agnostic, and I agree, you are probably one, based on your comments here. Therefor you’re not an atheist. But are you agnostic because you believe it’s impossible for mankind to know God, because you’re just indifferent to whichever religion is the true on, or because you just really dislike God? No-one can know God through his own knowledge or that of others (ie. science is not the correct instrument if you want to have a relationship with God), God has to reveal Himself to us. And I don’t think you’re indifferent to religion. Which makes me believe that you had very bad encouters with religious ppl and decided therefor that religion is bad. Just guessing, would really like to have some more info.

          • I’m agnostic because it’s impossible to know who or what “god” is, but we can live worthwhile lives without assuming the existence of a god. If I dislike religion it’s because religious practitioners preach that we should put our life on hold or be beholden to some agenda of their own for some bogus reward in the hereafter. That’s pure manipulation and it’s utterly evil.

  32. Totally agree with ths guy. The Forgiveness Card irritates me the most – the “Jesus forgave me, I am not free to do my shit all over again” trick.

    Why Born Again Christians Disgust Me

    There is a major misconception that people may have regarding how I view Christians in general versus the holy roller / born again type Christians. A lot of times when I write and speak I don’t draw a distinction between the holy roller / born again type of Christian and the kind that believe in a God but are also normal people simply living their lives. I realize this can give people / Christians a false impression of what I am really about.
    I make no bones about the fact that i am a take no shit kind of guy. I am not one to kiss the ass of anyone and I am not one to take shit from anyone. If someone has a beef with me my attitude is, confront me with it. If I am wrong or you can explain your position / perception / attitude in a way that I understand what you are saying and agree that you have a point I will do the best I can to correct myself. However if I have a different point of view I’m not going to back down and try to keep peace just for the sake of having everyone like me. By the same token what I say to your face is the same thing I would say behind your back. If I don’t like someone I will let them know it.

    All of this having been said, I do want to clarify something for everyone. That being most times when I use the term Christian I am thinking about the holy roller / born again type. To me these are the most vile and self serving people on the planet. With most of them I can see a degree of Narcissism in how they are thinking that frankly disgusts me. Honestly I feel there is no way that a person can think and act in the manner these people do and not be suffering from a type of narcissism if not fully blown narcissism or worse mental illnesses like delusional disorder or sociopathic behavior.

    I do realize these are serious mental illnesses that I am directly linking to fundamentalist Christians. However I do not say this just to be as insulting as I can. I do have very real reasons why I have reached this conclusion. Unlike some Atheists I am one that grew up around Christianity and had these ideas programed into my mind at a very young age. This is definitely a type of brainwashing that is still permitted in our society but one that I see as having very real effects on the way a person will view reality as they grow up. Perceptions of reality that are very much unrealistic and potentially destructive not only to their life but to their interaction with other people.
    Here is a break down of my major beefs with Fundamentalist Christianity.

    1. Unrealistic Expectations on other people / The Forgiveness Card – This one is based on the idea that if the holy roller / born again Christian does something that hurts someone else or is just not nice that all they have to do is say they are sorry / repent and magically everything is forgiven. This is madness for this simple reason. Just because you can mouth words of how sorry you are doesn’t mean the pain / damage you caused is magically removed. There are times in life that after you do something no amount of I’m Sorries or Please Forgive me can make up for it. Some examples of this are as follows.
    A. The Murder / Taking the Life of any other person
    B. Rape
    C. Child Molestation
    D. Child Abuse
    E. Abuse against another person
    F. An Affair / Cheating on ones partner
    G. Betrayal of a Friend, Relative, Partner, or even Co Worker / Boss
    There are others but these give an idea of what I am talking about. A person can be genuinely sorry for what they have done and sincerely mean it when they say they will never do it again. However expecting the ones you hurt or their family or friends to just forgive you because you ask is honestly unrealistic. There are times that no amount of I’m sorry or words of any sort can change the damage you have done.

    To say you’re sorry or asking for forgiveness and be well if they don’t forgive me it is on them. That you have done all you need to by simply mouthing the magic words of I’m Sorry or Please Forgive Me. This is self centered bullshit not showing where you are actually sorry about anything.
    No one is under any obligation to accept your apology or to forgive you when you have done something that hurts them. If they choose to that is their choice but this still doesn’t remove your obligation to correct your behavior. In some cases there is a social price that must be paid to the society and that is completely separate from if someone else can forgive you. I’m sorry doesn’t bring back someone you killed. It doesn’t make the raped woman unraped. It doesn’t make the Molested Child innocent again. and so on. Your actions have consequences and your being sorry doesn’t mean shit. You should be sorry but being sorry simply isn’t enough.

    2. The I Turned My Life Over To Jesus Claim – This is nothing short of making a bullshit claim to which the only thing your doing is finding ways to justify / excuse your behaviors with the bible. There is no evidence the Jesus of the bible actually existed. Even if there would’ve been a Jew in the First Century that did what this one is claimed to doesn’t mean that it could magically take over your screwed up life.

    Additionally this type of mindset means you no longer have Freewill but that you are a mindless puppet to the whims of this Jesus. Turning your life over to another being doesn’t mean you get to continue having the same self serving behaviors and just be, Oh I need to repent. This is not turning your life over to anything or anyone. No Christian Born Again or otherwise really wants to have something outside them-self completely possessing them and forcing them to make the choices this other being would want. So stop fucking saying you turned your life over to anything when you are wanting to have your Freewill and continue to make your own choices!

    3. Claiming to Base Your Behaviors on the Bible – This is a common bit of Christian Bullshit that gets uttered but these people don’t really do this. What they do instead is look to justify / excuse how they behave based entirely upon how they Cherry Pick or Twist what is in their bible to suit their agenda. These Christian’s don’t actually go by what is in the bible because the Bible advocates stoning disobedient Children, Having Slaves – how much you can Beat them, Killing someone for picking up Sticks on the Sabbath, treating a wife as property & women as being inferior / lesser and so much more.

    4. Claiming to have a personal relationship with Jesus – This is nothing short of complete delusional disorder because it is impossible to have a personal relationship with a fictional character from a story. It doesn’t matter if you regard the story as being holy or not. You can only have a personal relationship with someone that you personally know and personally knows you. This means that you have at least met the person to whom you claim to have a personal relationship with. You simply can’t have a personal relationship with a thought or an idea. If Christians want to claim there are hundreds of proofs of there Jesus having existed the first obligation they have is to provide the evidence to support that claim. Your claim is not true just because you say it.

    Additionally your claim is not true just because Christians made fraudulent writings in books like that of Josephus’s book Antiquities of the Jews Volume 18 Chapter 3 Section 3. This has been proven to be fraud and not actually written by Josephus because of the following reasons.

    A. “Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man” Why would it even be in question if such a person existed as to wither or not it would be lawful to call him a man? The idea that this Jesus was the son of God is a Christian claim not something a Jew would say!

    B. “He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles.” The only place in the Entire book that the word Gentiles is used is in this section. While there are 14 times the word Romans is used in this book. Why would Josephus switch from using the word Romans to using the Christian word Gentiles in Chapter 3 section 3 then in Chapter 4 switch back to using Romans?

    C. “He was [the] Christ.” No Jew would make such a claim as the word Christ is not a last name but a title meaning the Messiah!

    D. “And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross” There is no mention of this from any Jew or Roman Historian from 33 AD about this so called event. So the only way Josephus could’ve known of this was from Christian claims not from any witnesses.

    E. “those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day;” This is just down right false even going by the bible account. The Jewish day goes Evening to Morning. The story goes that this Jesus was put in the tomb on Friday Evening. Friday Evening to Saturday Morning is One Day. Saturday Evening to Sunday Morning is Two Days. If this Jesus Rose from the Tomb on Sunday that is Two Days not Three! A Jew like Josephus would clearly have known this.

    F. “as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him.” This is writing not from the way a Jew would be talking but a Christian. Additionally if there would’ve been Ten Thousand other wonderful things why didn’t Josephus mention even one of them? He spends a lot more time in section 4 talking about a sex scandal then he does on this God man Jew?

    G. “And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.” And this should be a given since if Christians wouldn’t have been around there would be no point in babbling about this Jesus figure. This doesn’t mean the Christian claims are true just because they were still around.

    5. The Claim that those who don’t believe in Jesus burn in Hell forever – This one is simply showing how sadistic and purely evil these Christians really are. To base an afterlife, assuming such even exists, on nothing more then the beliefs one has in their life is nothing short of thought crime. While putting your “Sins” on a Jesus is nothing short of Scapegoating. It is not actually being interested in justice or facing the consequences of your choices and actions. This is simply giving a loophole for people to do any evil and vile thing they want then say, “Jesus Forgive Me” and poof magically it is all wiped away.

    Additionally the claims of Heaven & Hell are based entirely on the physical pleasure or pain of the location. If this is as Christians claim a “Spiritual” place then physical pleasure or suffering wouldn’t be relevant. Simply put you must make up your mind is this afterlife a physical place or something “Spiritual” / an Energy form. You can’t have it both ways.

You understand right? Because I’m sure you know there is a distinction between God and men, and the acts of men do not define who God is – especially when there is so much reason to believe that those kind of ppl are not in fact born-again Christians. And nowhere will you find, if you read the Bible, that forgiveness gives anyone carte blanche to keep on sinning. Just some food for thought, not picking an argument with you …
