When I was watching this documentary I couldn't comprehend how zealous these people were. And pushing it into other people's faces. Having a religion is fine, but don't shove it down other people's throats. I'm an atheist myself but I don't go protest against churches saying God and the Bible are ******** (I am not saying they are, it is just an example. To any christians who read this, I meant no offense).   
   
But what I find the most disgusting thing about that community is how they indoctrinate their children from such a young age. In the documentary one of the kids is hit with a waterbottle, and I felt so sorry for that kid because he doesn't even know why he would have deserved that. He's too young to understand.   
   
And another thing that bothered me extremely was that at the end, he came to say goodbye and one of the children said he was a snake or something and saying bad things. When asked why he thought that the boy answered because HIS MOM SAID SO.    
   
These ************* are a blight to not only humanity as a whole, but especially faith. Honestly, if there vison of faith would be true, I would welcome hell with open instead of sitting on a cloud next to these people.

Yes, very true. Can't we all just agree some people are just fags and just happen to sometimes also be Christian, atheist, satanist whatever.

Every single community has bad sides. And these people are generally the most vocal and public. The 'real' community kinda keeps all the stuff involved with that community in that community. As such, the vocal, misrepresenting minority is always identified as he whole group.

As a Christian, first, I'm sorry for ******** like these jackasses who make such a mockery of what Jesus taught.

Second, thank you for not being one of the ass hat atheists.

Take my thumb you glorious bastard!

I'm almost sure people have thought about it but they would never act on it because what if they hit a child they wouldn't be able to forgive themselves. Plus the only ones that deserve it are the parents who threw it on everyone else. Plus it would make matters worse with this whole gun control going on in courts.

Louis Theroux's, "The Most Hated Family in America". You can find the 2006 follow up on YouTube (Which is called "America's Most Hated Family in Crysis"). The original is probably on there too.

I understand you though. I'm a christian, but I do not know anyone who actually follows or teaches any of this hate crap. Thing is, no matter what good thing people do, the negative things always stand out more.

I'd gladly sit next to them on a cloud in heaven...

....that way, I could kick their asses off.
But srsly, tru dat, if I were to spree-kill them, not saying I will, but if I were, I would of course spare the children. They're innocent, victims of their environment.
The old man, then the old woman, then the men, then the women, and our soldiers would picket their funerals and piss on their graves. Although it may stoop to their level, I think it would be justified.

First off, as a Christian myself, I would very much like to thank you for such a reasonable point. These people, West Boro, do nothing other than make a mockery of what a Christian is supposed to be. Its obvious that they refuse to acknowledge the Bible, our moral foundation. We're not supposed to hate or judge. I'm not trying to push my beliefs on anyone, that's not what I do, but it does bother me a bit when people like this particular group leave such a bad taste in others mouths for real Christians. Pic related- its me playing for my church.

Thats Deism. Deists believe that there is a creator being, but that basically he/she/it created us and our universe, then ran away and is doing only God/dess knows what, and that praying to them is pointless.

When I was little I lived in a village and my brother and I were good friends with the 2 kids next door until one day we didn't see them anymore and there dad built a huge fence between our gardens to replace the little one.
We went over to try and find out what was going on but we were told that we were not allowed to see them any more and they even started to taunt us at school. It turns out their mother had a problem with my mother being pagan and an 'evil witch' so i agree completely with you.
**** the parents who teach their kids its ok to hate those that they think as religiously inferior. You should not be allowed to teach kids that sort of thing.

First off, your username instantly reminded me of the Columbia flag(picture).    
   
But in all seriousness, I can fully agree with you. Every community or belief system has their own sub-groups, which vary from very friendly to outright militantly aggressive. Luckily for most people though, those very aggressive ones are almost always the minority of the group, however, they are the loudest and most noticeable. This causes a negative image of the group as a whole.    
   
I truly believe people would be more open-minded to new things if those extremists of any groups were not around or at least didn't shove their beliefs down other people's throats.   
   
And I may not agree with some certain beliefs, as do most people, but I believe people would at least have a far greater respect for others if  they were allowed to experience things or different opinions based on logic, reasoning and facts on their own, and not have someone push those things on them.   
   
But anyway, those are my two cents, have a nice day to you and anyone else that has read this text.

I think the post was more about how the kids parents force their religion and hate for other people on their children from a young age.. The kid can't be blamed for it, as you say, but it show how extreme and sick their society is.

He asked her how old she was. That isn't raging at her. In fact, it sorta proved it's the church's fault for taking advantage of innocent, unknowing business.

Exactly, I was christian for years. I was even homophobic until the age of 8-10 where i finally smart enough to strongly start questioning my religion. After that I was a strong Atheist for about 3-4 years. Long story short, now I'm agnostic.
