So if one is a non-believer and gets truly sick, it is ok to trash his/her character, but if a believer gets sick, you seem to have empathy to their sickness. You make me sick.
You call yourselves Christians?? You are an embarrassment to Christ's teachings. Remember this? “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”
Us “non-believers” treat humans with more dignity and respect than you frauds could ever fanthom.
He is boring .He thinks he still has a voice but he does not.Good Night Christopher,we still hold you close in prayer.
Ah Hitchens has spent his life spewing his form of 'hate' against the very Creator of his soul. I do not speculate over which side of the 'gulf' any soul goes when they return to met the Maker.
There is a requirement you left out in this forgiveness business, and, that is repentance, meaning, a change of heart. Hitchens is responsible for his own beliefs or lack thereof. Now I do not take any joy for his bad health. I will say one day, as with the rest of us, Hitchens will get to have his own, face to face, one on one, meet and greet with the Creator of his soul.
Funny little thing about your post is that when it serves your purpose you preach Christ, and then as if that is the only requirement for a 'believer' jump off the deep in and 'JUDGE' believers. So which is it, you know, old Alinsky had a particular 'rule' for radicals to follow in regards to ridiculing the Christians.
I don’t think anyone is expressing hatred. If anything, I think this thread reflects the spirit of charity and hope us believers have for Mr. Hitchens. One should never discount another who has a concern for one’s immortal soul.
It’s interesting, my father and I were just today discussing the parable of the Good Samaritan and how the man left beaten on the side of the road was passed by a priest and a Levite and the outcast Samaritan was the one who stopped and offered aid. In that sense, I accept your characterization that “non-believers” do good in the world. As I’m sure does every believer.
Having said that, however, I think its unreasonable for those who subscribe to Hitchens’ notion of a “celestial dictatorship” to assume that they, through the power of their own intellect are equipped to determine moral truth. For if there is no God, no Natural Law, then all we have is utilitarian philosophical musings.
“So if one is a non-believer and gets truly sick, it is ok to trash his/her character, but if a believer gets sick, you seem to have empathy to their sickness. You make me sick.”
He wasn’t just an atheist. He delighted in trashing Mother Theresa, a woman who worked tirelessly to help the unfortunate.
In comparing the Evil perpetrated by Believers vs Non- believers you may want to take a glance at history before reaching the conclusion that you have expressed.
