Actually, the Church actively suppressed the advancement of science because it was seen as the "devil's work", and would try scientists by "God's judgement". They would boil the hand of a scientist is vats of hot water, and if it healed well enough in three days time, they were set free. If it did not, they were executed.
Other scientists were simply forced to renounce their trade under threats of the Church.
Sooo... yeah.

Did you get your history lessons from the under the rock textbook? Seriously I'm not Christian anymore, but for Christs sake you have to accept the fact that the Catholic church is not the reason for every plight in history. Also like cheezbrgr said most early scientists in Europe were within the Catholic Church, they thought that by better understanding how the world worked they could better understand their God and in turn how to server him better. Gregor Mendel was the father of modern genetics and he was a Catholic priest. Also many texts from ancient roman civilization were preserved by Catholic monks many of them Irish.

Seriously pull your head out of your ass, trim your neckbeard, and read some goddamn books.

>you can't deny that things are becoming hostile to christians

When several state constitutions explicitly bar you from testifying or serving in office, call me. Until then, get over yourself.

>Things are getting worse for A

Yeah, well starving African children have it worse than B, so B doesn't have it bad either I guess.

Get over yourself.

They're not getting worse, Christians are just enjoying less of a benefit of being the great majority. I'm sorry that you can't put up religious decorations on secular government land anymore (although Christians still get away with it frequently in smaller cities and towns). Neither can anyone else, so cry me a fucking river.
User avatar #95 - usafperson (19 hours ago) [-]
Then make that argument, rather than the fallacy that was your last comment.
Also, you only addressed one small issue that cheezbrgr brought up, and you make a good point.
But you fail to address
>i can get fired for bringing my bible to work.
>people stealing nativity scenes.
>houston mayor wants to regulate sermons.
along with the massive hate and that fact that it's perfectly okay to make fun of Christianity to no end in media and pop culture. This very content is an example of it. It stereotypes Christians with a straw-man, makes fun of them, and calls Christians narrow-minded, bigoted, etc. While -most- Christians still do believe that acts of homosexuality is a sin, they still love all sinners and want God to forgive them, accepting them into eternal life, as opposed to "condemning a whole subset of people to Hell."

>i can get fired for bringing my bible to work.

I won't dismiss this one outright as long as you can show me where in the U.S. legal code there are special allowances made for discrimination against Christians.

>People stealing nativity scenes

Anecdotal. You can take any group of people and make them seem oppressed with a new story or two, so this one is out.

>houston mayor wants to regulate sermons

This is being litigated right now, so until there is a decision made it is a moot point.

"Massive hate" is entirely subjective, and it being okay to make fun of Christians in media and pop culture is as well. If humor is hostile and hate then FJ must fucking hate everyone that isn't a WASP.

Fun fact to add to all this: The big bang theory was made by a Catholic priest.

User avatar #15 - cheezbrgr (10/23/2014) [-]
the only way Christianity contributed to the dark ages was because for some reason, many Romans decided it wasn't right to slaughter the Germanic peoples as many were converting to Christianity in the 300s. the weakness they showed allowed the germans to grow stronger and gain power within rome itself, causing the fall of rome.
User avatar #13 - cheezbrgr (10/23/2014) [-]
the "Christian" dark ages were not caused by christianity. in fact the christian church is what preserved the old texts and roman knowledge that would bring us out of the dark ages. in addition the dark ages was caused by the fall of the roman empire and the resulting chaos as the various peoples all fought over what was left. the kings we know today were in fact warlords who gave absolutely no shits about science as is was better to be worried about building armies and fighting. Also, the idea that the church stopped the development of knowledge is bullshit. all those researchers who are the forefathers of the modern world lived well within the grasp of the church and if they had been interested in killing them it would have been literally no effort. is wasn't until the excess land and food caused by the massive population drop from the plague and the money the italians were making from trade allowed the europeans to begin expanding their knowledge as they were no longer using all their time surviving.

Many (most?) of the professional eSports are team based, as well. They've got brands, jerseys, merchandise, player stats and everything. I might say it's even easier to become attached to an eSports player because of how much you can follow them outside of professional events via online streaming.

Same reason any other sport has an audience. People are entertained by other people who can do things better than them.

If you don't think what they're doing is remarkable, it's probably because you don't know enough about the sport. You probably have a similar instinct towards, say, professional cricket, but that's still an extremely popular spectator sport.
User avatar #310 - cheezbrgr (10/21/2014) [-]
for example, (to my thought process) major sports in the US are so successful because they have created a following behind the team. people feel like a part of the team, they dress up, learn all the player stats. idk i just feel like gaming is to individualistic. but obviously it has a following regardless.

Well cmon

It shouldn't be hard to differentiate between enjoying something and displaying it in public
I don't wear my two MLP shirts in public unless I expressly mean to let people know what I like

and I have as of yet failed to conceive of a reason to do that
