Is Christianity worth respecting? Tim H. who wrote a comment for the Atheist Bible Commentary that suggests he doesn’t think so. So I thought i’d explore the ideas contained in his quote on the show tonight. Hope you like it.
Quote from the Atheist Bible
How do you respect someone who says that you will burn in torment for all eternity if you do not agree with them?
Respect is impossible at that point. You are threatening me with violence that exceeds the limitations of any suffering here on earth for the crime of not agreeing with your religion.
Your hold book calls me a fool (Psalm 14:1-3) and say that I can do no good. Your beliefs and your religious texts discriminate against me. They portray me as evil and corrupt. Yet, you want me to show you respect?!
When you come to me pleading with me that I show your beliefs respect they do not deserve which you and your religion fail to show me, the only response comes to mind is a hearty and sincere “f*** you”.
