Some Christians think this a great saying

“Reason is a *bleep*, the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but more frequently than not struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.”-Martin Luther

No wonder there are so many creationists and Bible literalists.

You religious people are ones who believe in talking donkeys and snakes, magic men rising from the dead and magic stories from a holy book which contradicts reality, not to to mention a magic sky wizard who hasn't done anything since he magicked Jesus from the dead. Maybe you are the ones who should get help.

haha. It's not a nice saying. It's the apitome of immorality.

God created a child so that he could sacrifice him to save humanity that must believe in him, or else not get the reward.

It's a threat which included a human sacrifice and yet, we're expected to think lovingly of this because it's wrapped in a heart meme.

You think I'm religious? [icon_lol2.gif]

Regardless if I were or not, I ain't the one obsessively questioning and criticizing others about their beliefs.

Yeah well I find it hilarious that Christians, which are abundant in the Okanagan cannot provide any evidence for their delusional beliefs

^^^ That one reminds me of the ontological argument for the existence of God:

God is perfect
Anything perfect must exist
Therefore God exists

The Okanagan is one of the least religious areas in Canada.
