    "Christian Churches Impacted by Six Homicides and More Than $6.3 Million in Property Loss in the First Six Months of 2009

    CINCINNATI, Ohio -- According to "Crimes Against Christian Organizations in the United States," a new report released by the Christian Security Network, of the 17 violent crimes reported by Christian churches thus far in 2009, six resulted in homicides. Additionally, churches lost more than $6.3 million in property loss due to burglary, theft, robbery, arson and vandalism."

    Religion Press Release Service

    Here's what the atheists say:

    We are picked on because we deserve it (big surprise):

    "It's rather ironic that a religion which so publicly proclaims Absolute Love as its basis should, over the course of history, spawn so much unmitigated hatred and violence. Is it simply that Christianity is a failure in inspiring better conduct from otherwise hopelessly evil human beings, or is there some aspect of Christianity which in fact encourages or promotes some of the baser aspects of human behavior? Perhaps it is a bit of both."

    Christianity FAQ: Christian Violence

    And it's worldwide. It's just getting started here, with the handful of murders and the general hatred towards anyone who dares to proclaim their faith.

    "We have 70 missionaries, an orphanage and a Bible school," he said. "Many of our people are in the forest, hiding. We got one email saying the Hindus were looking for them, to kill them.

    "...99 percent of Christians' houses are being burnt in Kandhamal district of Orissa.."

    Violence against Christians increasing in India

    "The recent attacks on churches in Alexandria have left the Coptic community in grief. While the Egyptian government continues to blame the violence against Egyptian Christians on the “extremists on both sides,” Christians continue to be the targets of attacks and are unfairly discriminated against by a government that tacitly consents to and assists in their persecution."

    I've read your books. Your god demands genocide and your religion is based round fear, control, hatred, murder, sadomasochism, misanthropy, ignorance, lies, deceit, misogyny, and the traumatizing of children to control the power structure and the status quo ante that allowed the religious leaders to dominant the masses.

    It's no surprise that people don't like you

    Allie, while I do agree that the bigotry on both sides exists, that is still a very small amount compared to what the true jesus freaks have done. Not to justify the behavior, but looking at the big picture, there is much violence from all groups.
