Steward, my sweet innocent chew toy, how do you get over your countless humiliations here? It is remarkable, unless you are not aware of your status, then it is just sad.
To the topic you posted; if it makes you blush like a school girl, so be it; I figured out at a very early age that supernaturalism is bupkees ... and I've yet to hear of any natural god.
So, was I ever a Christian? If it makes you squeal and jump up and down in delight to claim I was not, I have no problem with that ... nor do I have any problem with being accused of being in your theological ranks either if a child can really be in a religion. The good news is that I snapped out of it before becoming as you are now. I have the same basic position on other religions and cults as well.
After all, I used to think that aliens were flying around in the sky and that dragons must be real - when I was around 5 years old. Yet, between the two of us, you are the only one that today defends a book with dragons and unicorns in it; because you think it speaks of reality!
As for many of the others here, I have no doubt that they speak honestly for themselves. Some were about as mistaken as you are now ... some a little less, some a bit more. Yet, they were strong enough to break the spell and acknowledge what is real.
If you choose to be a bigot and reject what they say without knowledge, then go right ahead. Your interest in doing so only affirms how deeply you fear what Agnes Bojaxhiu knew in her heart and admitted to others but was too lacking in honest introspection to commit to; there are no incorporeal spirits guiding our lives or asking to be placated. We are wonderful as humans, full stop.
So, think what you want. Your insights on apostates are as good as those of any fervent Mormon, Muslim, or Scientologist. You could say they were gospel -- and I'd agree with you, though you may be puzzled at my deeply satisfying laugh.
