An interesting article:
But here is the sentence where Prather proves himself blind:
“They pretend that all Christians are bigots prone to violence.”
All Christians ARE bigots prone to violence. All Christians believe that anyone who does not proclaim Jesus to be the one and only son of God will be tortured in hell for eternity. Eternal torture is violence. The belief that all outsiders will be treated in this violent manner is bigotry. The dictionary defines a bigot in this way:
a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
What could be more hateful and intolerant than eternal torture? And Christians will swear up and down that this eternal torture is deserved for not believing in their fictional Jesus.
Plain and simple: all Christians are bigots prone to violence. Paul Prather, open your eyes.
