I found Jesus -- we shared some smoke, shared a few jokes, and chatted about life -- but i've lost him again. If you see him tell him he still has my lighter. He should be easy to spot, as he was wearing Vans, jeans and still had his "Hi my name is Jesus" sticker on his pink I heart unicorns t-shirt.

So let me recap...

A guy creates a thread in which he describes not just atheists but people of other faiths as "lost".

People respond by making fun of him.

And we're the ones that are intolerant?

When I arrived on these forums, the religion forum was largely inactive. Most of the threads were very self-satisfied things where people talked about how wonderful it was to be saved. On the whole, it was pretty clearly the case that if you weren't a fundamentalist christian, you weren't welcome.

People understandably took issue with this and now, not only is there more posting on this particular forum but people of different viewpoints feel able to express themselves freely and robustly.

On the whole I'd say that was a definite improvement over smug fundies bemoaning the fact that everyone isn't a smug fundie like them.

As for me, I'm an equal-opportunities pouncer. Never knowingly unoffensive :-) I think all beliefs are equally silly and will refrain from making jokes about none of them.

It's just that Christianity is such a good target. I mean eternal fire and torture awaits all who would dare to question God's infinite love... that's one of the funniest things I've ever heard :-)

Have a GREAT day!

There are certain things that should not be spoken of in dating rituals. Religion and politics. One will never convert another to their way of thinking and the arguement goes on ad nauseum. This are things we need to agree to disagree on.

Yes, everyone should feel sorry for me.

Calling people of other faiths and atheists "the lost" is not just an opinion. It's a very moralistic judgement of people who aren't christian.

Not everyone is christian, anyone who seriously thinks that these people are somehow "Lost" deserves everything they get.

On a discussion forum you live and die by your words.

Why the negativity? The man was just trying to ...witness. It may have not been the most effective method but I give him props for trying.

Theo, The shortest response is worth about 10,000 words.

Is it not written in the great book that the "lost" shall receive a second coming and it's disciples shall rejoice with great vigour. But a foreboding will also be given, for do not worship craven Idols, for there is only one Tony Soprano.
All praise these friends of ours.
