For you, you consider a discussion of issues to be your one-liner opinions, that you expect to be taken as fact. Ad-hominem
ramblings, why because I poked you over not being able to spell atheist? My, we aren't thin-skinned are we? It's laughable that you would bring up a
fallacy. I would have sworn by your previous posts that you had no clue they even exist. But hey, speaking of rambling, what the hell does the pope or
what's on at the movies have to do with this discussion? Tell me why you think I would be any more interested in a movie about Christ than you would be or
what the pope has to say? Do you even read other posts or is it just hard to retain, with all that anger you seem to have? You are the atheist version of
Backwoods, although thankfully your incoherent ramblings are shorter. Thank God, eh?

Just Me, I'm not disagreeing that these things happen. There isn't a religion or any kind of system out there that isn't
"worked" and taken advantage of by weak, greedy, immoral people. When I was a Christian, it was not taught to me the
way you're explaining. You had to be truly repentant in order to receive forgiveness. And not continue to repeat your mistakes. God or no god, I think
this is true. I'm not defending organized religion in any way. It has become it's own god. I'm horrified by the power it seems to have over so
many people. What I do defend are individual people. Believing in God doesn't make you just like every other person who claims to believe, anymore than
being an atheist makes you like all other atheists. Religion doesn't determine whether you are a good or bad person. I have no problem at all attacking
the doctrine of Christianity. I believe it is full of lies and deceptions. I see no need to attack individuals, unless their beliefs cause a negative impact
on my life. The sweeping generalizations were my only problem in this discussion. I do actually agree with all of the points you made.
