Jesus Haters- read this

how about not reading threads that are religious in nature then it won't be "shoved down your throats".

seems simple enough to me...

It's a good thing Jesus took the high-road.

Christians are taught by Jesus to be tolerant of everyone, but Non-Christians don't have to be tolerant of Christians? Let's be fair, here.

So, you're saying that if it's about religion, no one should be able to critcize it or say anything that isn't scripture approved?

Then to be fair, If I post anything about soemthing you don't like or see as silly, you will also refrain from commenting?

Is this really the best you can do to defend your faith?

What if I think god is great, but his followers are idiots? Should I not post either?

Tolerance is a dirty word

Tolerance seems to be a code word for "hating something in private". The Blacks were "tolerated" in society...the Indians were "tolerated" when they were put on the reservations...

Instead of tolerating something, why not accept it for what it is and move on? I am not a Christian, but I live with someone who is. I don't tolerate her presence or her beliefs, I accept that she believes one way and I believe another. Is that so difficult to do?

WAIT!

can we remember why we are here? We are here to support each other and get healthy whatever way we can. Lets stop with the name calling and starting supporting each other in what is, for some, the fight of their lives.

Jesus haters???

I don't think anyone expressing opinions on this board are
Jesus Haters. Lets all grow up a bit and channel that angry energy into
fighting our weight issues, not each other!

"Christians are taught by Jesus to be tolerant of everyone, but Non-Christians don't have to be tolerant of Christians? "

no, we don't. there's no threat of missing out on the kingdom of heaven or any threat of burning in hell if you don't believe in those places/things. you see? and what exactly does "to be tolerant of everyone" even mean? does "everyone" include gays, agnostics, jesus-haters, promiscuous adullterers, women who choose abortion or the doctors who perform them? you know that any one who supports, participates in or has an abortion is automatically "excommunicated" from the catholic church in the eyes of god? how is that tolerant? if by tolerant you mean that christians are more able to decide who is morally acceptable and who deserves the christians' most concerted efforts NOT to be hated, then i ask you-who are you to judge?

i don't think anyone here has indicated that they are a "Jesus Hater". Quite a few have made it clear that they are sick and tired of religious people shoving their religion down other peoples throats, or expect the rest of society to conform to their religions often twisted morals. Amazingly enough, for the conservative "christians" those morals bear little resemblance to what is alleged to have been preached by Jesus.

There is rather a large difference between Jesus hating and being sick to death of people who claim to represent him in order to claim superiority to others. And what ever you do, don't even bother claiming to be "humble". It is to laugh.

You reap what you sow.

"Christians" might want to want to remember this advice from their very own book.

Bible, Galatians VI (King James Version): Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Not a Jesus hater, just an agnostic.

I didn't take to preaching when I quit smoking, or whenI lost the weight that i wanted, or when I commited to a 6 day / week workout schedule, and these are all personal accomplishments which I achieved.

i don't see how someone who gets up, goes to church 1 day / week has the right to preach their views to others.

for that matter, even if someone chooses to attend church services (or mosque or temple services, or no services at all), there is a time and place to preach. it's called a pulpit in the church. otherwise, lead by example and behaviour. for those who continue to provide blessings in response to the requests to refrain from pushing your religion onto others, you are doing a great disservice to your religion. would you like for me to burn a print-out of your comments and hold some special ceremony or ritual with the intent of purging your religion from your mind? and to tell you i'm going to do this? i don't want to be blessed by you or in the name of your god, nor do i want to hear about you praying for me. thanks anyway, but i know where there are churches, mosques and temples if i ever feel compelled to participate. the forefulness with which some people have approached the subject is offensive!

Good point on leading by example and behavior

If I was in the market for a god, the current behavior by many if not most who call them selves "christians" would lead me to believe that any god that they worship would be such a nasty, ill tempered, petty minded, misogynistic, racist, homophobic creep that I would have no interest in worshiping such a being anyway. Fortunately, I don't believe in mythical gods, whether Jehovah or Zeus or the Green Man, so I can place the blame for the behavior squarely where it lies - with the people behaving in such nasty ways.

I hate when I do a good thing (carry someone's groceries, return keys found on the street, etc) and someone says "you're a good christian". I smile as nicely as I can manage and say "no, I'm just a good person. Some of us don't need a list in a book to figure it out."

what??!! do people really not like each other for having different beliefs? why should anyone care if someone posts something religious? why should anyone be referred to as a "hater"? God loves the world. Not only the Christians, not only Anglo Saxons, not only Americans. Love is life. Hate is death. we can choose to see what we want to see in each others eyes.

The atheists, agnostics and some more mellow religionists of various stripes are mostly upset at having other peoples beliefs pushed at them.

Hard core religious people have been going to WAR, or burning or torturing people for millenniums because of their beliefs.

why does jesus suck sooo musch??

Apparently… Jesus is the creator of all, what I think is different.
I think Jesus is fiction - not real. I think the bible is made to keep people in line and fearful. The reasons why I believe this is because just look at the Mormons! They don’t drink because it’s a ‘sin’.
Why lie to every ‘believer’ when you can tell the truth and say “hey, you know what, he’s not real! And get it over and done with. Me personally, I hate liars and lying to a whole bunch of people who want to believe in something other than them selves who better than the ‘man up stairs’.
Priests are useless as well. They don’t believe in having sex, drinking or breaking the so called ‘Ten commandments’. If people choose to believe this crap then so be it.
What about the nuns, the frigging penguins!! They have sex on the altar with priests (I know this because my Nan did it). Why do people follow a fictional character rather then themselves? It pointless!!!
There’s no reason to jump to conclusions that god created everything.
Listen to some of the crap people say about him:
• In the beginning was the Word and the world was with God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
• God demonstrated His love by sending His promised Son, the Savoir and Messiah, Jesus Christ, and allowing Him to be crucified. God paid for our sins Himself. The Lord is good, just and merciful beyond our understanding.
Why do people think Jesus is the world when his not real. I don’t understand why people believe this. Oh well. It’s their stupid choice.

I actually love Jesus, but I hate people who start threads like this and try to raise the faith in his name. Shame on you.

Has anyone thought about the original post? If you don't believe in Jesus or God, why oh why do you insist on reading threads that are obviously religious in nature. Why go in just to stir up strife? As one of the above posters implied, if Christians are believing in a fictional character, how is that any skin off of your nose? Why not leave them alone in there happy little alternate reality? The point of being hateful eludes me.

what a laugh

I wish most people only got upset at Mormons because they "dont drink because it is a sin." There is way more to get excited about us than that. But more power to ya. A "mormon."
