The Questioner Posted: Wed Sep 27, 2017 11:14 am
The unique problem with religion going bad, as opposed even to bad politics, is the idea that God has directed whatever is done or said. This makes it difficult for people to challenge.
And then another unique problem about aspects of religion, is that religion shouldn’t need to be seen as something so unique, that religion would then be sheltered and therefore allowed to escape criticism .
In the past, this has been allowed to become a widespread problem
Not anymore.Times have changed.Religion is now just as much fair game for criticism, as what any other subject of discussion also is ?
Why shouldn’t it be ?
But some theist don’t seem to like to need to be dealing with this.Perhaps because they feel offended by it ?. Well lots of people may feel offended, when faced with criticism.Brethren groups react negatively this way.And likewise many Catholic folk have also reacted negatively toward criticism as well too, like when they were being faced with widespread criticism in regard to child abuses that their church leaders had refused to address.
Aspects of religion are not something so unique that they should be allowed to escape criticism
This is what believers need to deal with (themselves). Get over it !
Its year 2017
To counter attack this situation. Educated theists well versed in use of sophistry.Chose to rather try and turn criticism around, so as to be able to make atheist (involved in criticism of religion) look bad for even daring to criticize theist sacred cows
So cunning educated theist well versed in use of the fine art of sophistry, promptly invented the idea of militant atheist (an attempt to throw atheist into the ring of people of unsavory character)
Seems that this is how far, some sly cunning theist are willing to lower themselves to, so as to continue to still shelter their sacred cows from criticism ? (they don’t seem to care about any amount of harm doing-this might then help to cause.)
The sacred cow matters most above all
So why would we even bother to wonder why so many faith abuses are still able to remain widespread in year 2017 ?
If interested people take interest to study comments of some forum member on wikipeebia carefully.I suggest you’ll soon be able to pick-out certain members who might seem angry about criticism, they feel, is being aimed entirely at themselves.They most specially hate to need to deal with criticism that is laced with a sense of comedy
And yet if a atheist were to only allow themselves to revert to use anger.These theist would then feel able to feel smugly happy about that situation themselves then too. Because in their mind, this is then helping to prove their faith-belief (IE: atheists are bad people.Not just normal human’s reacting in ways how normal humans might usually be expected to do,when feeling anger that faith abuses are not being addressed)
This is another angle when theist sophistry is in-play
Rather than sitting down and taking a few deep breaths of air (like women giving birth), and getting into some serious self-reflection. Caring to address the situation by asking themselves, in more real honest depth, questions ,in regard to why it might be, that they might even have any need to need to be feeling stupid ?
Instead their only reaction is to still continue to try their very hardest, to still continue to find some way, any way possible, to re-confirm (unto themselves) and see the atheist as only being those wicked people who’s intent on continually acting badly
Seems so little wonder widespread faith abuses would continue, even still in this year 2017
I even now have somebody, who even rings my cell phone, regularly.One time this person even went as far enough as to actually speak a few words (in a wee squeaky church-mouse voice) to me,just to be sure to let me know, how he knew the connection between myself in this blog.
Shame on this person
I wont ever bow down to any kind of religious tyranny
I don’t even mind if i’d need to die in refusing to do so. (Im wondering and often im having a good chuckle.What kind of nutter would be stupid enough to want to waste their own money on pointless phone calls?)
