Christian Babies

"I don’t think they should be able to teach religion until you’re 18 years old, and you know what? It would be a whole different world. Because if they weren’t pushing that **** into your head while it was still soft, you’d never buy it, not for a minute. If you’d never heard about the Bible and none of your friends had ever heard about Christianity and you just found a Bible in a used book store, oh, you’d jump right on that, wouldn’t you? ‘Oh, this sounds so logical, yes! The cave, and the ark, an oh, yeah! Hey Donny, I think I found the meaning of life here.’ No! You’d ******* chuck it in the waste basket, you would." - Doug Stanhope, comedian

Socitey: '

There is no such may as a Christian :
only a chm of Christian parents."

Dawkins underestimates the power of human stupidity.....even adults would buy into **** like that...i.e. SCIENTOLOGY

''Because if they weren’t pushing that **** into your head while it was still soft, you’d never buy it, not for a minute.''

If religious debates created energy, we could harness it and power the world.

The post isn't saying it's impossible to become a christian without christian parents, it's talking about how religon can be forced on babies and that's perfectly acceptable, but people find the idea of forcing political views on babies to be absurd, when really they're the same thing.

What are you orlying about? Nobody cares.

Well, that's awfully funny considering that... wait a minute, that wasn't funny at all.

Well the reason Christianity was brought into the Roman Empire was beacuse the
rulers realized it's easier to control the crowds if they follow a certain belief, they never
cared about God or such things. That also happened with USA many many centuries
later, and it's obvious. It's just up to you to be smart enough and decide for yourself. I
myself am lucky to be in an enviroment where I'm able to choose who and what I want to be, even though my country has many problems. Still I'm a believer but don't
practice it that much, just believe. And the most important thing is that i don't push it
up anyone's nose. That's what any follower of any religion should be like.

The rules of Dungeons and Dragons state that a newborn child's alignment is always true neutral unless it is magically altered. It made a ton of sense when I read it

He is born a christian baby and is destined to be a christian because his PARENTS say so, until he decides he doesn't want to be a christian of course. He is taught the way of Christianity and accepts it while growing up therefore he is a christian. It's called parenting. also Political party ≠ Religion
also i'm not christian
also religion is belief just like people's moral standings, It is the parents duty to teach their beliefs to their children if they don't want the wrong people influencing them. This is the parents business not Richard Dawkins nor yours.

I am posting as anon because I will get thumbed down like redpet please feel free to reply

Honestly, religious zealots and vehement atheists are pretty even in terms of dickishness. They both try to force their beliefs down the throats of others, and they both have disillusioned themselves into thinking they're better than everybody else simply because they hold a certain set of mores. People who lambaste others for having a differing set of views are idiots, no matter who they are. Having an undue superiority complex should not be rooted in beliefs alone, but the merit of one's character. All arguments between atheists and religious people are bouts of circular reasoning. I believe there is a passage in the Qur'an that states "You are not wont to believe what I believe, and I am not wont to believe what you believe, so we must not quarrel over this matter," or something along these lines. Say what you like about Muslims, but I practically live by that statement.

I love this, first you say that we are a blank slate. Then you say we have these morals instilled in us from birth. So which is it? You like to talk as if you have such an open mind, but people like you are the most close minded. Because people like me believe in God we are uneducated and our parents filled our heads with lies. I never told you to believe in God, maybe someone else did, I don't know. However you get to say that I am wrong and don't know what I'm talking about. Unfortunately your logic is as flawed as your argument. You're right that some people in religion like to tell people the're wrong and are going to hell. That's not all of us. Don't fall into the same trap that they did. Open your own mind for a minute and understand that everyone has the right to their own opinion, and you are not right solely based on your disbelief in God, just as those that persecute you were not right solely based on their belief in God.

so wait, atheists criticize Christians of basing all their opinions on quotes from a book. Yet what is this asshole doing? being a hypocrite that's what.

I'll say the exact same thing I said the last time this was posted here. I don't think you'll find any Christians, including myself, who will disagree with this.

God does not have any grandchildren. Salvation is not hereditary.
