    Is Christianity a mob religion?

    No, I'm not asking if Eye-talians have anything to do with the big C. I was thinking again (bad sign) and remembered something a famous man once wrote. ALlow me to paraphrase.. "It is no accident that Christianity is a mob religion---the streets will be paved with precious stones and gold...money." - The aspirations of inferior men.

    Why does Christianity need to do this?

    I think the Bible is a crowd-control manual. What do you think?

    I have to say your post makes absolutely no sense to me. What the heck does paving the streets in gold have to do with a mob? And what does either have to do with Christianity?

    gary , I'd like to know why every bible thumping jackass is a self-deluded imbecile who quotes some book that is totally just made up as though it were actually true. Can't prove shit about it, yet you foolishly believe it. Doesn't anyone ask for proof anymore?

    Avatar, you're a fucking asshole thinking your god is an alien from a planet you can't even see. Your too dumb for even this message board.

    Are they all leftists?

    I didn't know that.

    I actually think that most of the Darwin Thumpers on this board are actually libertarians and hate anything they believe is remotely leftist.

    Note that I say, most, not all, please.

    All religions except for possibly Buddhism are mob religions. They depend on the conversion of others and the indoctrination of its followers' children to maintain their power bases.

    I don't classify Buddhism as a religion other than the definition of an accepted set of beliefs. the simple fact that Buddhists don't worship a supreme being but rather seek enlightenment from within oneself separates Buddhism as I understand it from other god based religions
