Letter to the Editor

After listening to Pat Robertson openly advocating assassination I’m not sure who scares me more, him, or the one million Christian followers he has that think the way he does. This is why we Realists find Christians scary. We are watching to see if the Christian community comes out against this or continues to remain silent. The way I read the Bible, advocating to murder is wrong. Is this some sort of Christian fatwa?

This is why Christians are so scary to us Atheists. The want to be as radical as Muslims and they have this total disconnect with reality to where the million followers don’t get it why murder is wrong, even when it’s right in their own Bible.

I tend to agree. It seems to me that this guy is inciting terrorism. Can you imagine if some chap from your local Mosque said the same thing ?

He’d be locked up ny now.

I don’t label myself as an athiest, sure, I don’t believe in god, but I also don’t believe in the loch ness monster, the tooth fairy or santa claus. The term “athiest” has has the same conurtations as the phrase “religious nut” does.

The world would be a much better, safer place withou religion.

Robertson is a nut-case for sure, but that isn’t the scary part. The scary part is that there are so many people who think he is actually some kind of religious person with ethics. I guess I’d have to be called a non-theist. I’m not a Believer, I’m a Thinker. The two just don’t seem to line up in my way of thinking.
Just think how it would be in this world if we just had the ONE RULE Policy, “Do unto Others as you would have them do unto you” So simple, but, like, I don’t want to die, so I better not kill anyone or anything for that matter.
The so-called religious in this country are the part we should try to convert to intelligent beings. I know that’s a HUGE step, but we should try.
