Same thing with homosexuality and homosexuals.

I don't really remember anyone getting infected with gabies recently.

The only ones using ******** propaganda is tumblrfags with their war against anything white straight male or cisgendered.

[big]Yeah, and straight people have been trying to do what to homosexuals for a pretty long time now?

Aside from killing them (which still happens) there were a lot of psychologists/psychiatrists who thought that they could convert homosexuals to heterosexuals through things like corrective rape.

I think I know who got the worse end of the deal when it comes to "converting."[

Jesus christ, you people have your heads shoved way too far up your own asses. Some guy hitting on you in the club doesn't compare.big]

I;m fairly certain homosexuals don't try to give homosexuality to everyone else.... (they might try to aggressively get everyone to treat them like human beings but that's a little different)

didn't atheist start both world wars?
I get that the crusades were "religions" wars but... man the crusades where 90% go get Europe rich off Arabia.
The whole Idea that religion starts wars is stupid, people that want power start wars, and this will never change.

Contrary to popular belief, Hitler was actually a Christian, and he identified himself as Christian.
#84 to #34 - masterboll (07/09/2014) [-]
contrary to popular belief, he wasnt a christian because he carried out atrocities condemned by christianity

theres a difference between calling oneself a christian and actually being one
#116 to #84 - Rascal (07/09/2014) [-]
yeah no condemning it after inst actually condemning during is it
#114 to #84 - Rascal (07/09/2014) [-]
there are many forms of Christianity, just because he didnt do things as the bible would suggest, doesnt mean he isnt Christian , after all he probably believed he was doing gods work by eradicating the jews and breeding a master race

You gotta remember religion has no rules, just standards that people believe are rules
User avatar #129 to #34 - anonymoose ONLINE (07/09/2014) [-]
He used Christianity to both justify his claim and gain the support of the masses. Whether he was a Christian or not, I'm not sure.
User avatar #42 to #34 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
Well you acted up and logged off, so here goes. You'll need a copy of "The 3td Reich at war", the "Goebbels Diaries 1939-41", and "The Nazi Persecution of the Churches 1933ā€“45"

Aight, first off Hitler had always held the belief of Nazism being secular and science oriented. While in speeches he may have talked about Christianity this was for the sole political purpose of having one of the largest institutions in Germany, the Church, on his side until he had total control, when he was appointed Chancellor. From that time onward he persecuted Jehovahs, broke the Reichskonkordat allowing for the persecution of Catholics (around 1940-41), and basically just started ******* **** up.

Secondly, we have writings from his right hand man, Goebbels. Goebbels wrote on 29 April 1941 that Hitler hated Christianity yet couldn't have his top men leave the church for "tactical reasons".

Let's conclude this. All we can peg on Hitler is that he was apatheist. He hated Christianity yet associated atheism with Communists and Jews. Either side shouldn't use him as an example because he is an enigma and trying to figure out his religion doesn't work because of all the conditions and the fact that you can't just label some people.
User avatar #47 to #42 - fishandkids (07/09/2014) [-]
Except in Hitlers book (the one he wrote and not somebody else), mein kampf (written before he took over Germany), he says he does all he does becasue he elieve it is God's wish. He also says he has always considerd himself a Catholic.
User avatar #49 to #47 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
I take it you read nothing I wrote. See there was a big difference between before he took over and after. Mein Kampf is nothing but propoganda to make himself seem like a normal person who just got screwed over by the Jews, and to establish his future plans which makes it seem like his world would be a utopia.
User avatar #55 to #49 - fishandkids (07/09/2014) [-]
So him saying he was a Christian does not prove he was a Christian, but someone else saying he was not a Christian proves he was not a Christian?

He closed down the biggest free thinking organization in Germany and replacing it with a church clearly shows how he wanted to moce away from Christianity.
User avatar #61 to #55 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
Not to mention that basic logic dictates that a Christian of any degree would allow 3 people he easily had control over and could've had killed at the drop of a hat (the 3 I mentioned, Goebells, Himmler, and Bormann) to commit the Kirchenkampf and persecute his kind.
User avatar #60 to #55 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
You're kind of dense, aren't you? Mein Kampf was before his rise to power when he needed as much political support as he could get, mainly coming from the church. After he became chancellor he broke the agreements he had with the church and allowed Himmler, Bormann, and Goebells to carry out their own "vendetta"/persecution of the church. It's already been established by multiple historians that Hitler was manipulative and used the church to boost him into power, and double-crossed them first chance he got. Study history, friend.
User avatar #63 to #60 - fishandkids (07/09/2014) [-]
AFTER Hitler gained power he shut down the biggest free thinking organization in Germany and replaced it with a church. Years after Hitler died, the Catholic Church celebrated his birthday. The Catholic church clearly like him.
User avatar #65 to #63 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
And besides, the shutting down the freethinking and the persecution of religious folk only goes to prove the point that he was likely apatheist who wasn't concerned nor allied with people on either side.
User avatar #64 to #63 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
Can you cite your sources for all of these? I provided mine in the original comment, your turn.
User avatar #68 to #64 - fishandkids (07/09/2014) [-]
kind of didn't. You just told me to read 3 entire books beacsue at one point in the books I will find it.

2 of the are not real sources even. One is written by a man, not being Hitler and can spew any BS. I could also make a diary of you and call you a racist, homophobe and a muslim. that doies not make it trough 70 years later. The last one is a book that in the title shows how it from the start didn't give Hitler a chance. I refuse to give any sources until you givce me easily optainable source through link, so I don't have to just go out and buy books and then read them all the way til I can find that part.
User avatar #71 to #68 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
And I didn't tell you to read them all, for the one that really matters, the diary, I gave you the date in question.
User avatar #70 to #68 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
You're dodging the question, I was giving you names of books cited on, yes, wikipedia. I provided three books, one written by Hitler's closest advisor and right hand man, I've given you easily researchable historical proof, (ex Kirchenkampf and breaking of the Reichskonkordat), the only thing you really need to read is Goebell's diary, which isn't forged considering he personally had it recorded and stored where Soviets later found it. I've provided more proof than you, and if you're gonna make those claims, the birthday one AFAIK/researched being outright **** , you're gonna have to back them up.
User avatar #74 to #70 - fishandkids (07/09/2014) [-]
I never said it was forged. I gave you a book wirtten by HITLER, but you said that was not a credible source. I don't don't want someone elses opinion of Hitler. Are you telling me if Osama Bin Laden's right hand man came out with a book saying Osama was not a Muslim would you belive that?

User avatar #75 to #74 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
No, what I'm saying is that based on other sources and Hitler's actions, we can safely determine that Mein Kampf was propaganda to put him in a positive light. As I've said multiple times which you ignored is that it's only logical that a Christians wouldn't let his men persecute other Christians.

Really? That's the best you can give me? My sources are written by credited historians or first hand witnesses. Yours come from "evilbible", a website known to be full of **** (I've refuted their contradictions section MANY times), "theatheistconservative", and "liberalslikechrist", which appears to have quotes originally taken from "catholicarrogence.org", not to mention the heading saying "hitler a catholic" which sounds like either a kid or ESL wrote it. If you wanna continue this you're gonna need objective historical sources. **** , not even objective, just extremely less biased than this.
User avatar #76 to #75 - fishandkids (07/09/2014) [-]
you Mein Kapf, but you rafuse to give it crediut, then go on and ssay first hand witneses. Hitler was a first hand witness to Hitler. Your third source is no better than Evil bible. You decide to give me BS source, I give you BS source. You have given me one source that can be slightly considered and that is the diary. The diary is also a ton of BS as anyone can easily write something of someone claiming they are somone else. If Osama Bin Laden's right hand man wrote in a diary that Osama was not a Muslim, would you believe that?
User avatar #77 to #76 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
a) Your typing is atrocious. Put in effort

b) Wrong, I think you need to google what a first hand witness is, you can't be a witness to yourself. And my 3rd source is credible since it's literally about the historical persecution of churches under the 3rd reich, yours is just about how theists are stupid. How is the diary BS? It was literally recorded by Goebells on microfilm. We have historical proof he wrote it. He had no reason to lie, you can't just claim it's a lie because it's not by that person. If I write a book saying I'm super intelligent and practice some ancient long-lost religion, does that make it true?
User avatar #72 to #49 - thatoneiranianguy ONLINE (07/09/2014) [-]
The issue is still divided. The man was diverse and changed a lot over the course of his life.

There's good arguments or both side; but whether or not Hitler was a believer or non-believer of a god figure is truly unknown. His opinions on organized religion however were less than favorable the the religions.
User avatar #78 to #72 - teoberry (07/09/2014) [-]
That was in my original point, it's so divided that apatheist is the most logical conclusion since he showed hate to both sides.

Hitler was just delusional, besides, if I said I was emo, walked around in pink and cut my hair to a buzz cut, am I still emo?
Hitler killed "God's chosen children" the Jews, is that Christian.

I'm fairly atheist, but I find people going on and on about atheism about as annoying as those who go on and on about religion. and all Gervais does is pick a topic on which people inevitably and endlessly voice their opinions, in the hopes that it hides how unfunny he is.

#100 to #9 - shadowgandalf (07/09/2014) [-]
I'm taking the scientific approach.
I simply want to know if option A is true, and god is exist, or Option B is true, and he dosn't.

It's kinda important to know, considering that IF he actually exists, i will be spending an eternity in hell.
If he dosn't, then i will have spent my entire life taking orders from a fantasy friend.

So, looking away from the atheist vs religious thing, it's actually pretty ******* important to get the facts straightened out.

User avatar #48 to #9 - commontroll (07/09/2014) [-]
I agree. He just wants attention and does it because it gets him some. I'm Christian, I don't give a **** if somebody doesn't believe in God or believes in another one. It'll come up in conversation because it's a big part of my life, but if it's not part of yours, then that's your choice. But holy **** that vocal minority of atheists can be annoying. What's weird too is they're praised as intellectuals when they're just dicks on the opposite side of the bigot coin.

This is Jenifer Lawrence all over again. People don't seem to realize that what get;s posted here isn't all the person does. Ricky Gervais' anti-religious sentiments get plastered all over FJ and people get annoyed because it seems like he's beating a dead horse. But most of these things were probably prompted by something, and were months and years apart. It's not like he's only ever bashing religion all the time.

The internet has a way of only portraying extremes and the in-between get's filtered out.
#44 - Deavas (07/09/2014) [-]
i find it fascinating that you will be generally shunned if you make public announcements promoting or trying to spread atheism which is literally just a belief like any other religion
meanwhile
organisations promoting and spreading beliefs with faith are encouraged and get tax benefits from the government
like honestly, you could make a whole case about how atheists are being oppressed because theyre "not allowed" to make a big deal about their beliefs, while every ******* other religion is

**** , i would do this just to make a point. i dont even atheism and id do this
#120 to #44 - tomjay (07/09/2014) [-]
First of all, atheism is predominant near to all western cultures (except maybe freedomland). You come to terms with atheism through general cultural indoctrination (I'm not using the word with a negative context here). So funding atheism would seem rather pointless.

Second of all, atheism in itself really isn't one concrete belief system. In it, you have different moral philosophies and principles; and often, completely different values. You can have an atheistic existentionalist or materialistic hedonist, and they both can have completely different motivations in life. You have the same diversity even in religion (e.g. protestantism and catholicism), but in atheism, the spectrum is much more vast, with most people not even having any solid structure on what they believe. Therefore, I don't really see a way how could "atheist church" organization be organized.

Lastly, there is the thing which ties well with the second point - how would your "atheist church" use the government funding, to what end. General philantropy? Bachhianic parties? Scientific research? Consumerism developement?


Anyway, I just wanna say the last thing. While it may be in your country that atheists are opressed, in my it's the other way around. Since there's been communism for 50-ish years few decades ago, religious tendencies have really been repressed to the point there is a really small minority of believing people still in existence (lately, there has been an influx of different new age movements and cults though). People who are religious are generally percieved as weirdos and christians have it possibly the worst. I have a friend who's buddhist and also another one who's christian and both of them usually don't share that with people untill they know them pretty well.
#121 to #120 - Deavas (07/09/2014) [-]
First of all im only talking about freedomland.

Second, so is every other religion

Lastly, they don't. That's not the point.

I don't hate religion or those who practice it  now that    
I'm not an edgy 14 year old anymore . Some people just need something to believe in. How they decide to deal with the crushing existential terror of daily life is their business, not mine. I only get annoyed when religious and non-religious folk alike attempt to make their beliefs the only belief. You're not special or better than anyone else for believing or not believing in a deity.
