Stupid, Scary and Ignorant quotes

AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that *tolerates* homosexuals."

--Jerry Falwell, 1993


"The right of holding slaves is clearly established in the Holy Scriptures, both by precept and example."

--R. Furman, Baptist, of South Carolina


"The doctrine that the earth is neither the center of the universe nor immovable, but moves even with a daily rotation, is absurd, and both philosophically and theologically false, and at the least an error of faith."

--Catholic Church's decision against Galileo Galilei



The Earth is degenerating these days. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer mind their parents, every man wants to write a book, and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching.

- Assyrian Stone Tablet, c.2800BC



God gave the savior to the German people. We have faith, deep and unshakeable faith, that he [Hitler] was sent to us by God to save Germany."

--Hermann Goering, from Louis L. Snyder, "Hitler's Elite, Shocking Profiles of the Reich's Most Notorious Henchmen", Berkley Books, 1990



"It is a just retribution for improper sexual misconduct"


--Mother Teresa, on AIDS


"Evolution is a bankrupt speculative philosophy, not a scientific fact. Only a spiritually bankrupt society could ever believe it. ... Only atheists could accept this Satanic theory."

--Jimmy Swaggart



"To assert that the earth revolves around the sun is as erroneous as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin." -

--Cardinal Bellarmine, 1615, during the trial of Galileo



[Planned Parenthood] is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism -- everything that the Bible condemns.

-- Pat Robertson, The 700 Club television program, April 9, 1991



The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.

-- Pat Robertson, fundraising letter, 1992


Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.

-- Pat Robertson, interview with Molly Ivins, 1993.



Better a pink bottom than a black soul.

-- Rev. Lester Roloff, defending his punitive child-control techniques. Roloff was jailed in 1973 and again in 1975 for child abuse.



"No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."

--George Herbert Walker Bush, Former U. S. President, 1988.



Our culture is superior. Our culture is superior because our religion is Christianity and that is the truth that makes men free.

--Pat Buchanan



"We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand."

--James Watt, Secretary of the Interior during the Regan years.



"When you know the LORD you have no need for masturbation."

--Brice Wellington



"Nobody has the right to worship on this planet any other God than Jehovah. And therefore the state does not have the responsibility to defend anybody's pseudo-right to worship an idol."

--Rev. Joseph Morecraft, Chalcedon Presbyterian Church, "Biblical Role of Civil Government" speech given 8/31/93 at Biblical Worldview and Christian Education Conference



"When the Christian majority takes over this country, there will be no satanic churches, no more free distribution of pornography, no more talk of rights for homosexuals. After the Christian majority takes control, pluralism will be seen as immoral and evil and the state will not permit anybody the right to practice evil."

--Gary Potter, president of Catholics for Christian Political Action



"We're going to bring back God and the Bible and drive the gods of secular humanism right out of the public schools of America."

--Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan addressing the anti-gay rally in Des Moines, 2-11-96



''We are completely void of anything to do with God. Teachers can't touch a child - even to hug a crying child. Young boys are on Ritalin and a lot of the problem is because we have a female-dominated educational system which tries to make little boys act like little girls.''

--William "Bill" Murray, addressing the "God and Country II" rally, speaking about the need for prayer & Bible recitations in school



"The public school system is damned. Let me tell you how radical I am. Christian students should be in Christian schools. If you have to sell your car, live in a smaller house, or work a night job, put your child in Christian schools. If you can't afford it, homeschool."

--Jerry Falwell, "Trends in Christian Higher Education," Regent University, 9/22/93



Rail as they will about 'discrimination,' women are simply not endowed by nature with the same measures of single-minded ambition and the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism."

--Pat Buchanan (11/22/83)


"It's very healthy for a young girl to be deterred from promiscuity by fear of contracting a painful, incurable disease, or cervical cancer, or sterility, or the likelihood of giving birth to a dead, blind or brain-damaged baby (even ten years later when she may be happily married)."

--Phyllis Schlafly, founder and leader of the Eagle Forum



"When the temptation to masturbate is strong, yell "Stop!" to those thoughts as loudly as you can in your mind. Then recite a portion of the Bible or sing a hymn."

--Mormon Guide to Self-Control



"I know one man who was impotent who gave AIDS to his wife and the only thing they did was kiss."

[Pat Robertson]



"Many of those people involved in Adolf Hitler were Satanists, many were homosexuals -- the two things seem to go together"

[Pat Robertson, ADL report on Religious Right, page 131]



There will never be world peace until God's house and God's people are given their rightful place of leadership at the top of the world. How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communist, atheists, New age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy money changers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers and homosexuals are on top."

[Pat Robertson]


"Sex education classes in our public schools are promoting incest."

[Jimmy Swaggart]



"The only way we can determine the true age of the earth is for God to tell us what it is. And since He has told us, very plainly, in the Holy Scriptures that it is several thousand years in age, and no more, that ought to settle all basic questions of terrestrial chronology."

[Henry Morris, ICR President, 1974]



"...this monkey mythology of Darwin is the cause of permissiveness, promiscuity, prophylactics, perversions, pregnancies, abortions, pornotherapy, pollution, poisoning and proliferation of crimes of all types."

[Judge Braswell Dean, in Time Magazine, March 1981]

I'd like to say that I'm suprised by these quotes. But the fact is that I have heard some of the same stuff from people that I interact with, and I can understand some of the hatred that causese this ignorance.

"Ignorance is the night of the mind, but without the light of a moon or star"

The one quote about AIDS being caused from a person's sexual conduct is true.Casual sex,whether it's strait or homosexual sex,is the way that the virus usually spreads.Why argue with facts?In the early years of aids,some innocent victims did accidently get infected from blood transfusions,ect, but nowdays,it's people's immorality that causes the spread of this virus.shay706

Joey said...

Shay, I don't think a mistake should go hand in hand with "a just retribution for improper sexual misconduct". You think people deserve to die because of one mistake...mate you've got issues of the wrong kind. Do you think AIDS awareness in african nations is good enough for these people to realise what they are doing? Its the very fact that she (MT) is saying they deserve it which is the issue.

Organised Rekigion is stupid. It had a function. That function is no longer valid.

These religious aealots are absolutley obsessed with homosexuals...I wonder what Freud would make of that.

I would like to point out that these comments and quotations are from PEOPLE. I don't think any Christian would argue that people who call themselves Christians are perfect. People have terrible ideas sometimes (as expressed by the quotations above). And unfortunately they mis-represent an entire belief system. I ask that people keep an open mind. There are a lot of wonderful Christian quotations as well as some more negative ones. I am not saying that the quotations above are not valid, just that it is important not to only look at negative points of a religion- caused by people.

Anonymous,

All quotes are from people. People are the only ones who talk. Invisible deities and their invisible minions never talk -- people claim to talk for them.

Ryan Hudson said...

Hatred is the Christian way and it always will be. Although it claims to "love thy neighbor", they often claim the Old Testament when they want to hurt someone and the New when they want forgiveness. Even Jesus said he didn't care if you listened to his words or not, but then later said that he didn't bring peace, but the sword and would turn father against son and mother against daughter. Prince of Peace my ass.

FOLLOWING THE BIRTHDAYS[MILAD] AND [urs] ANNIVERSARIES- IS PAGAN-

http:christmasxmas.xanga.com/684910421/item/

SEE FOR YOUR SELF EVEN THE EARLY 3 CENTURIES & DISCIPLES OF JESUS DID NOT CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY OF CHRIST AS IT WAS THE CUSTOM OF PHAROAH [PHIRON]/ GENTILES AND DEMON GODS-
WHEN CHRISTIANITY ITSELF IS NOT THE PIONEER OF BIRTHDAYS HOW CAN [TUK]HAVE THE GUTS TO IMPOSE IT OUR BELOVED PROPHET SALALHU ALAI HI WASLAM-
What is the origin of birthday celebrations?
Birthday celebrations are actually rooted in paganism.
T...he Encyclopedia Americana (1991 edition) states:
"The ancient world of Egypt, Greece, Rome, and Persia celebrated the birthdays of gods, kings, and nobles."
Authors Ralph and Adelin Linton reveal the underlying reason for this. In their book The Lore of Birthdays, they write:
"Mesopotamia and Egypt, the cradles of civilization, were also the first lands in which men remembered and honoured their birthdays. The keeping of birthday records was important in ancient times principally because a birth date was essential for the casting of a horoscope."

So, there is a direct connection between the Pagan practice of birthday celebrations and astrology (horoscopes and fortune telling).

Not surprisingly then, the ancient Jews did not celebrate birthdays, regarding them as Pagan.Also, The World Book Encyclopedia (volume 3, page 416) states:

"The early Christians did not celebrate His [Christ's] birth because they considered the celebration of anyone's birth to be a pagan custom."

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_origin_of_birthday_celebrations

Down to the fourth century Christianity rejected the birthday celebration as a pagan custom.

The being we call god is merely a pawn working for a powerful and rational force in some far-off galaxy. This force is trying to weed out people who are irrational by seeing who would be stupid enough to believe in his god illusion so easily. Those that believe in this illusion, he will send to eternal damnation and he will deliver the rational beings, those who stoically refused to believe in a god, to heaven."
- Nicholas Yee

George Carlin sums it up:
Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time! But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit!”

"Try to see the good in people instead of looking for flaws."

Yes, Chelsey, that is exactly what I, an atheist, do. However, sometimes people's flaws are just way too obvious to ignore....especially the flaw of self-imposed delusion.

I removed my god-blinders a long time ago. Seeing things and people as they are (i.e. REALITY) doesn't always make life "brighter" but it does make it more honest, forthright, and sincere.

webmdave said...

chelsey,

God will never give you more than you can handle.

Yeah? My ten year old son's own blood poisoned him. He suffered for months and then died. I would say, that was too much for my son to handle. Take your ignorant platitudes and stuff it up your a**.

He gives us hope and it makes life so much more bearable with Him by your side holding your hand through the tough times.

Funny that, while my son suffered, god was nowhere to be found.

CC: "I can tell you that God exists because He is seeking you at this very moment."

Unsupported assertion. Empirical, physical proof, or retract the above statement.

"Why is it, that, nonbelievers exhaust so much time and energy opposing something that they do not believe exists?"

Because believers are screwing up the world that we share with them. When My rights are threatened by someone solely because their mythological storybook tells them them I should not *have* certain rights... I hit back. And continuing hitting. With extreme prejudice.

"The motivation behind challenging those who believe in God is that you are seeking an answer; you want someone to confirm the answers you so desperately seek."

Attempted mindreading. WMDave, may we stone this interloper as a false prophet? :-D

"God is always on your mind, because He wants to know you. "

Wants to know Me? Rather an odd statement to make about a supposedly omniscient being.

But I'll make a deal with you, CC. Tell your imaginary friend to quit it with the idiotic hide-and-seek games; reveal itself unambiguously to all of humanity regardless of creed or geographical location; and to make it crystal clear that there is no such place as "Hell"; no such thing as "Original Sin"; and no value whatsoever in substitutionary atonement. Then, and only then, will I consider conducting a dialogue with said being.

The only problem is that The few Christians in a position of power are hateful bigots who want to push their perverted ideals on everyone in the name of their "God". Pat Robinson is just a miserable closeted little hobbit who needs a good roll in the hay and a stern talking to from the Pope.

Not all Christians are like this and I cringe when ever someone slams the entire christian faith, just because some religious zealots started wagging their forked tongues.

If you seek to find the answer to understanding God, you cannot look to other people expecting to find someone who wont dissappoint you. We all have faults and whether Christian or not people make mistakes. The only perfect human was Jesus. You are truly blessed to see God in another. Try to see the good in people instead of looking for flaws. Life will become so much brighter. It is a struggle to make it through life. God will never give you more than you can handle. He gives us hope and it makes life so much more bearable with Him by your side holding your hand through the tough times.

I can tell you that God exists because He is seeking you at this very moment. Why is it, that, nonbelievers exhaust so much time and energy opposing something that they do not believe exists? Why does it bother you that other people believe in God? The motivation behind challenging those who believe in God is that you are seeking an answer; you want someone to confirm the answers you so desperately seek. Your heart and mind desire to become unbound from questions of God, if only you could prove to believers that they are wrong, you could finally be free to move forward.
God is always on your mind, because He wants to know you. God created you with the aspiration that you would know Him and He is enveloping you with evidence and will keep questions of His existence directly on you.
Do you believe you can break away from dwelling on the chance of God is there? Maybe nonbelievers are bothered by people who believe because God is aggressively pursuing them. If you can bring yourself just to consider this possibility and tune into the right frequency (open spiritual eyes), you will not be able to help but see God all around you. He is waiting patiently for you to let Him in and if you do open the door you will be amazed at the power of His love and peace it will bring you.

It's been a while since I wrote that but felt I should respond. I have not had a perfect life by any means. I have experienced severe trauma and was basically a robot on auto pilot for a while. I could not see past the question - Why did this happen to me? I was absorbed in my self pity and was angry at God and everyone else. I wanted to blame everyone. I began drinking and trying to escape from that pain and of course that did not work, I sunk deeper and deeper into sadness. One day I took an hour to clear my head - did not think of anything but the water running and taking deep breaths in and out. I took at deep look at what I was carrying around; the pain, the anger, sadness, and hopelessness. I took a look at what part I had in those situations and how I could have handled it differently. I prayed to God and I asked Him to remove that burden and allow me to accept forgiveness and to forgive. I was transformed that day and God is the reason why. I do not conform to any standard of what is expected of me I can feel the Holy Spirit within me and I follow His guidance. It is better than anything I could have ever imagined possible. The kingdom of God is here and I can experience that through the Holy Spirit. I am not ignorant nor living on a pink cloud nor perfect. I was just trying to share the joy that I know have. I pray that you experience the grace of God and find hope when life's challenges seem unbearable; He has not forgotten us! The storm will pass.

this is so astounding how christian preach love and understanding but if i were to say a little thing like i am a (insert various religions here other the judeo christain ones) they get phsyco one of those door preachers came to my door once and said i'd like to talk to you about jesus and i said i'd like to talk to you about satan (i am not stating any beliefs here this was merely a joke) and he freaked out like i had just told him i was going to kill his family or something so there my rant

"We all have faults and whether Christian or not people make mistakes."

So God does not really do anything to change Christians?
Figures. Christians get to claim they are favoured and yet act as greedily and selfishly as before.

pure frothing lunacy. I'm free, have no answers, need no answers, not looking for any. get a clue.

webmdave said...

CC,

"God" had his chance, so many times, to make himself/herself known to me. If begging, pleading, quoting scripture etc. etc. doesn't get a revelation from God, then what would? Now that so many of us have finally concluded there is no God receiving our requests, why do you impugn our motives?

The tables could be turned onto you in this subjective lunacy (I borrowed the term from bdp) of questioning motives. Why do you need to say such things to us? Perhaps you're the one whistling in the dark. You REALLY don't believe in God so you have to protest that we REALLY believe in God. You poor denial-ridden theist.

I have an idea. Why don't you quit playing X-Men mutant with telepathic powers and accept that people have rationally concluded that there is no god?

What I am doing on this site is fleshing out a new world view in light of the fact that I can no longer believe in the god of the Bible.

There are philosophical, psychological, hermeneutic, epistemological, political, sociological, interpersonal and scientific implications for such a major change in world view. There is much to talk about. And, there are some very intelligent, insightful people here with which to discuss the implications of that major life overhaul.

So, unless you have something intelligent to contribute (from a theistic perspective, even) to the process, then kindly apply your telepathic powers of motive reading elsewhere.

I also highly recommend you engage in wemdave's thought experiment as well.

Chelsey: I can feel the Holy Spirit within me and I follow His guidance

Funny how the ONLY god evidence we ever are presented with, is how a god-believer can FEEL their god.

To me, this kind of so called evidence, rates right up there with the loonies who tell me they can feel demons attacking them and are in the middle of a spiritual war with such demons.

The kingdom of god is NOT here Chelsey, and if you would look outside your tiny god-bubble, you would realize that the world is not all about you and your mental god.

Please explain to me why this (un) Holy Spirit has chosen to communicate (inhabit?) you, but has ignored every ex-xtian on the website?
What did you do so differently that most of the world's humans, have failed to do?

ATF (Who is sure that Chelsey is special in HER god's eyes, as all True Xtians are also more special than everyone else)

webmdave said...

CC: Why does it bother you that other people believe in God?

In a nutshell, for the same reason is SHOULD bother you, to have someone who is mentally ill, pushing their delusions upon the rest of society.

If you xtians would keep all your beliefs and opinions to yourselves, then I wouldn't have a problem with your crazy belief system.

Instead, your god delusion spreads amongst our society, like a pox.
You infect innocent children with your mental disease, ensuring the infection continues on.
