Christianity vs covid gets and F.

Where are our man made gods?

vs 320k+ dead souls in the US alone.

Do covid deaths get a free pass to heaven?

Covid is a middle finger to man-made religions. Every fucking one of them.

Now you know why my atheist soul burns, even before I die.

4. I tend to follow David Hume's bundle theory...

that the mind is simply "a bundle of perceptions"...

8. I do not like stomping on anyone's opinion..

but that reply is 100% devoid of any and all scientific findings and facts.

Can you take your argument into a science lab or a court of law and come out a winner?

Can you prove your argument? Again, I'm trying to be decent in my own arguments. I know this can be a touchy subject.

9. Why didn't you post this in the Atheists forum?

Not really “decent” to come to General Discussion just to trash the beliefs of thousands of your fellow DU comrades.

I’m not religious myself, but I think pushing atheistic views in a forum like this is every bit as inappropriate as proselytizing for a particular religion.

20. Atheism is part of reality.

GD is for GENERAL discussion, so it's OK to be an atheist here on DU.

It is simply the lack of believe in supernatural entities and the like. There is nobody proselytizing for atheism here.

21. That, I assure you is not true.

It is a common fallacy, but remains incorrect.

6. I got an ad on my phone from a local megachurch...

That said "2020 has been an extremely rough year for all of us. But come to our Christmas Eve service anyway!".

And we wonder why cases aren't going down.

15. I don't remember when or where I first read the word "pesthole"

but it sure does fit here.

pesthole n. a place that is considered a breeding ground for epidemic disease.

11. As much as some hate to hear it, religion plays a big role in the anti-science movement

When the evangelicals here started their crap about evolution being "just another theory" it helped set the stage for ignorant people thinking their opinions on science were just as valid as the scientists themselves. So now we've got millions of yahoos who don't know a microbe from a manifold telling anyone who'll listen that Dr. Fauci doesn't know what he's talking about. They have been emboldened by their con artist leaders and won't listen to facts, so the rest of us get to suffer assholes not masking during a pandemic.

16. Now we have popular and influential Christian leaders

telling their many followers not to take the vaccine. Isn't that just dandy?

18. Which of course means the pandemic will rage on

We used to have religious leaders who made accommodation with science. Now the cult-like features of many religious sects have come to the fore, or those such as the mega churches with a cultish nature are the fastest-growing in the religious sector. Not a good sing for the rest of us.

12. When I meet people who call themselves Christian,

I ask them if they feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit people in prison, take care of the sick, and invite the homeless into their house.

23. Not all Christians believe God is going to protect them from Covid 19

Especially when they do something stupid like refuse to wear a mask. Some of us believe God is in control of all things including diseases like Covid 19 and he is also in control of all things behind the scenes involving Covid 19. Down to the last variable.


While your making threads attacking Christianity, because of the response to Covid 19 by right wing fundamentalist without making distinctions between various Christian sects and doctrines while having and avatar of President Elect Joe Biden. You should remember Joe Biden is a Christian and so was President Barack Obama. You tell them you think the Corona virus is a big middle finger to Christianity and see what they think.

I swear if most Democrats displayed the open hostility at Christianity as some people do on this board we would never win another election and I'm not just talking about the Presidency, but pretty much all races rather it be the House,Senate,Governorship,State legislatures etc.
