Simple: its the most popular religion and people generally know more about it than other ones so its easier to talk about.

Am I the only one who read the "You should have been aborted" thing as a sarcastic joke?


I did, too. That doesn't change the fact that it's a crude and obnoxious joke, if it is one. The guy who squeezed out this stinker was the type who probably would have put it on his permanent victim resume if it was directed at him, so I can't feel too sorry for him if it's tainting his reputation.

The Jews Get enough hate as it is. They get treated more like a race than any other religion.

In the western world, especially in america, it seems to christians as though they get hated on the most because most believe Jesus was the son of god, so its more likely to be a topic of conversation.

Also, Muslims get hated on sooo damn much. On the freaking news we have supposed "proffessionalls" being blatenly against islam assuming anyone who practices it it is a terrorist.

Then the rest of the religions aren't popular enough to be made fun of except for the mormons who get plenty of flack.

Seriously, I want to know what garbage defines as an attack. Is it anything critical of Christianity, or is it an actual attack? A slander? A physical attack? Etc.

Whenever I use the word, I'm specifically speaking of anything that puts the "attacker" above the "victim". For example, calling someone stupid for their beliefs or merely making a joke which exhibits an attitude of being "holier(better)-than-thou". It's really pointless for me to interject though, since you're not even talking to me :laughing:

It seems pointless to have a definition if the definition will be subjective and situational. For example, you haven't really defined anything by saying "if I judge a thing to be looking down their nose at me." A definition would tell me what criteria you are using for that judgement. The only solid answer you've given is when someone calls you stupid, which yes is a verbal attack to anyone.

It's interesting to hear a Christian concerned with "holier-than-thou" behavior, and I'm curious to know how you differentiate others being holier-than-thou from them seeking to stop you from being that way.

Understandable. It's really a matter of their tone and context, in my opinion. A more simple (maybe less clear) definition would be any verbal or physical attempt to belittle someone else for their beliefs or behavior.

I try my hardest to not fall into that behavior, although I do at times. I think a profitable way to differentiate it is by the method in which someone chooses to present my behavior. For example, someone could be 100% correct in their estimations, but the way they present it has an affect on how I receive the correction ya know? I believe a sense of humility while rebuking someone is very important and profitable. I don't have a set method on how to differentiate it though. :o

Context clues are a beautiful thing, my friend.

Well Christians and Jews have the same god so any attack or opinion of the that god is an opinion of or attack on both those religions. I am an atheist and i know many others and i don't know were you get this idea that we only take issue with Christianity. it is true that a lot of atheists do concern themselves with Christianity more then other religions but this is because Christianity is the biggest most powerful religion. Also many atheists come from christian homes and with that comes inside knowledge of said religion. That personal experience with Christianity leaves them with a sour taste in their mouth and thus Christianity becomes the first religion they think of when they think about the problems of religion.

I know you didn't, but I'm just saying, to think that christians are the worst is just downright wrong. christian extremists try to force their beliefs on you. so what? just tell them to fuck off. muslim extremists strap a bomb to their dick and kill thousands of innocent people in the name of "allah" because they think they're going to go to heaven (lol, yeah right) and see 72 virgins without eyes.:rolleyes:

there are TONS of religions that deserve way more shit than christians. I NEVER see atheists complaining about muslim extremists, or asshole hacidic (lol sp) jews who segregate themselves from everyone else, or mormons because apparently THEY get freedom of religion. their religion is "history and culture~~~"

yet, they'll attack any and every christian they see. the mere mention of the word god makes them pitch a fit. it's pathetic. and when they try to "debate" you all they do is act cocky, stamp their feet, and say "god isn't real! you can't prove god is real!" over and over again.:rolleyes: I'd like to see one of them prove that a god ISN'T real?



Christians are viewed as the " worst'' because of their size and numbers which translates to them having the most influence on politics, the educational systems etc. Also Christianity also has a long history of suppressing people, art, science and new ideas. Its not the Muslims, Jews, Mormons, Amish etc. that try to set our education system back 150 years by trying to teach creationism in a science class.

Yeah. I was going to add that. I just did not feel like getting into a big debate. most Christians I come across seem to think Islam is nothing more then a pagan religion and in no way shape or form is related to Christianity.
