No.... We didn't do anything, we weren't there. Millions were killed, by individuals, most of whom have been lost to history. I am not saying that was not an atrocity, however to attach he actions of individuals to a group of people based on there ethnicity and heritage is pretty racist. Mhaberling: Were you there, then you would have killed, just because of your beliefs.
To you as well... those responsible for what happened to your people are dead... To say that all Christians are responsible is to say to an individual "You kinda look like the person that is responsible so I am holding you responsible" and once again Racist
You can't get out of it that easy. Nearly all religions, are taught to kill with impunity, it is righteous and correct according to there own tenets and doctrines.
the fact that those very same tenets and doctrines still exist is very telling about religion.
If you believed that god or jesus gave you leave to kill Jo Bloggs down the road you would do it.
I've even heard christians state that they would kill there own children if god asked.
It has nothing to do with individuals, but all to do with the belief and doctrines they are inculcated with.
Haha... oh shit...
Bertaberts... Im not trying to get out of anything.... I am aware that if put in that situation, probably would have killed to. But I wouldn't have been me, I would have had a different upbringing and been exposed to the veiwpoints of the time. You probably would have killed in that situation to kiddo.
You say I'm trying ti get out of it as if I was guilty of something in the first place. All i'm saying is that the actions of individuals, should be seen as that. I do not hold you accountable for every terrible thing Atheists have done throughout history, don't hold me to all the terrible things Christians have done.
Also, I can tell you that if God ever told me to kill my own children... I would promptly tell God to F off. And you do not know what I was taught or what I believe. You know nothing about me except for a screen name and a post yet u have extrapolated so much. But you telling me who I am from such little information is kinda amusing so ill give you a little more to see what you can do with it I like medium rare stakes and room temp Crown Royal poured over ice. Please tell me more about myself based on that.
Oh and have you met Jo Bloggs, Jo Bloggs is a terrible man and deserves to die!
No but seriously I don't think I would kill Jo, that doesn't sound like something I would do.
Also remember religions are not the only parts of society that have justified killing in the past.
