Those atheists might be rethinking their position.

They even left Hitler off of the list. Scores of millions killed in cold blood, and all because of ... the inability to accept God’s world, or the drive to prove just how fallen it really is. Obama’s mother, father, real father, and grandparents, all believed in this crap.

If they were really atheist, they wouldn’t care if anyone had religious beliefs.

Give it time. Pope Francis is trying hard to give Marxism the church’s blessing.

Once the Islamofascists take over, there isn’t going to be any more atheism. It’s coming.

Almost all of those men were raised either Catholic or Protestant, save for the Vietnamese individual and Mao.

It is interesting that all of these men were 20th Century tyrants. Why did this particular kind of tyranny never pop up in all the centuries prior? You might say Marx and Nietzsche changed history, but then why did men not have their ideas before? It took a long time to get to that point.

Very scary though.

You are the one covered with filth here, and for that reason you can not see what was being referred to.

These people directly rejected Christ.

What can be plainer? Now try not to reject Him yourself!

A) I worked for the man you use in your screen name (B) I didn’t claim they were believers when they performed their evil atrocities and (C) last time I checked, the “Class of 2012” is still mostly on probation and doesn’t order anyone around. Verstehen?

I'd like to add that much of the energy behind modern conservative action comes from from the atheist capitalist Ayn Rand.

We should remember who the real enemy is and work together.

Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Paine all had different conceptions of God, but they all agreed that each had the right to be free to determine that conception for himself, without government coercion.

Rand attempted to reason as close to sanity as she could get.

She does have some glancing contempt for Christian principles, for example damning the idea of sacrifice per se. Without a genuine God with genuine bona fides to sacrifice to, sacrificing does not please reason. With a genuine God, it does please reason.

Is that an example of Christian love or of turning the other cheek? Help me out. As a witness for Christ, you're supposed to be the expert.

You are describing your own self when you talk about a head up a derriere.

They had formal intros to Christ! They turned on Him! Do you think every “raising religious” means a believer? If you do, maybe you think you are a believer because you were raised!

The fathers to Mussolini and Hitler were not fans of organized religion — they were ‘anticlerical’. The two despots essentially rejected Christianity despite any late-term alliances adopted for reasons of survival.

Hitler was a weird case. He cobbled together a religious system that was focused on the POWER he could PERSONALLY GET. He didn’t care what that POWER wanted to do, or what kind of God/god it served. It ended up driving him mad with rage.

The eight-year-old Hitler took singing lessons, sang in the church choir, and even considered becoming a priest.

I think her idea was that the dead don't have a system of morality. If your morality can't help preserve you, then you won't be around to practice it.

It's a good point, but the continued existence of religions more than a thousand years old tells us her analysis was incomplete.

And yet, the saddest thing, apparently Christ’s redemption did not touch his soul. He was playing church. He ended up dabbling in the occult and it ended up pulling him in.

Well, she was talking about sacrifices short of death.

That kind of truncated what her world view might otherwise have been.

“You impugn any religion to my face ...”

There are many Muslims who are irrational, homicidal maniacs.
They are religious bigots with serious anger management problems.

And his mom was Catholic. I know. But he didn’t kill in the name of Christianity. It was atheism that facilitated and realized the evil that ran through his veins.

RUA’s answer will probably be to filth you. RUA is trusting in “RELIGION” — a manmade concept.

I think we should take the idea seriously that leftists and Marxists are trying to create their own religion.

Consider all the rules leftist dominated universities come up with concerning tolerance and social justice. In another age they would have said "God says" before making all their pronouncements. They get around church-state separation today by simply making these assertions from a position of scientific authority (though the positions themselves aren't necessarily scientific).

I'd love to see a supreme court challenge against them on the basis that the positions they push are religious ideas even though they don't identify a god.

Actually it was Nordic occult paganism mixed with anti-Semitic nationalism with a dab of Vril and a dusting of Marxism.

Yes, that is a frequently made point, and leftist behavior frequently acts like a religion would act, but with a very bizarre and twisted “God.”
