    The only thing this dude has in common with Gnostic Christians is socialism.

    No.

    I am not recommending violence. Inquisitions and jihads are religions answer to things and is their specialty.

    The religious doing as Jesus tells us to do is what would reduce the violence. That being to get the hell out of the faces of those who do not share your delusional thinking.

    Ah, you mean like inquisitions and jihads, religious tools.

    No. I just let the hate that you guys have for women and gays and the equality of all people be known.

    If you don't like that, change your vile and immoral ways.

    Why? Do you like that they deny half the population their right to equality?

    You might want to check the peace stats.

    The less religion in a country, the more peaceful and law abiding it is.

    Do you want more of the G D religions that are like the immoral mainstream ones we now suffer?

    I don't want to deny anyone's rights. I want everyone to enjoy the same rights. If anyone, KJew or Hindi or Siek or Muslim or snake handlers want to display an emblem of their faith.

    I'll open the gates for a little more God in people's lives. I don't take with Marx saying religion is the opiate of the masses. In these parts, opioids are the opiate of the masses.

    I don't believe that religion should influence our laws. Dogma and legislation is a horrifying mix.

    But whoever wants to worship and be proud of it (because it's all about pride) must be free to do so.

    I disagree with the bolded part. Having a nativity scene on federal land doesnt establish a religion. Also, the establishment clause doesnt say government cant practice religion, and it doesnt say religion cannot exist in government. It only says that the government on a federal level cannot state any particular religion as a national religion.

    The inquisitions were always the most modern system of justice in their times of history. The inquisition is even still a basic of all modern judical systems in the democracies. The "advocatus diabolo" for example was the idea that even the devil personally has the right to have a public defender in court.

    Which jihad or crusade do you speak about here? The little jihad or the big jihad? The little jihad fights with the circumstances of life - the big jihad fights with the own person.

    And what is a "religious tool" in your way to try to see what's really going on in the world?

    Aha. You think things are true, because you are able to thing thinks.

    What a luck that specially militant atheists are not the worst moralists the world ever had seen. Specially not the peaceful Nazis and Commies.

    I have nothing against worship and praying the way Jesus taught and that religions who say they respect Jesus do not do. They should walk their talk and get their immoral garbage religions out of the public space.

    Stats are showing that the less religiosity in a people and country, the more peaceful it is. Peace and love is what all religions brag about, so making religions walk their talk should be something you, and all the religious would approve of.

    Neither do I and I also think that freedom from religion is as important to the non-believers as freedom of religi9n is to those who are preaching their vile and bigoted hemophilic and misogynous messages.

    This is all I need to know from you to determine that you are a fool and know nothing of justice. Religions are what taught Hitler his trade and the Church aided in his genocide of the Christian hated Jews.
