    So you will continue to push that ignorant argument regardless of how many times it's debunked eh? Typical.

    Prove that those mass killings were done in the name of atheism or we must assume that you are willfully dishonest... oh... too late, but anyway, proof!

    Having been Catholic, having attended Catholic schools, having converted and spent many many years railing against xianity, I think I have a very good understanding. I do understand as well, your desire to deny the truth.

    I am hardly surprised you would read “life” from lives” and would feel compelled to ask the OBVIOUS based on your incoherent rants displayed in this thread.

    "Innocent lives" equates to the people who were working in the World Trade Center who were murdered by desperate terrorists whom people like you appear to defend, for no other reason than they were Americans.

    I find your desperate rhetoric specious in that you presume to suggest that these murderous thugs even had a reason to do what they do. You keep referring to OUR actions as if these thugs even need a reason to conduct their murder and terror, other than we are Americans and not Muslim.

    You’re profound only in your own mind, but your arguments suggest someone who has little information, is historically ignorant and most likely to operate on an emotional level rather than intellectual.

    The presumption that Communists are NOT atheists requires a stunning level ignorance. What part of the Communist manifesto regarding religion do you NOT comprehend?

    Do you think that these mass killings could have occurred in a Democracy? Do you honestly want to argue that the Nazi’s were the result of democratic processes?

    You learned nothing in all that time because Catholic charities, by and large, do not involve proselytizing at all.

    But you can keep lying about your experiences if you want to do so. It wouldn't be much of a deviation from anything else you spew.

    The statistics show that the more often you attend church... the more likely to support torture. When I read this I found it interesting but not surprising. Thoughts?
    OK Not so much a thought, but an observation. I was seeking THE knowledge, for a time , in the religeous chat rooms of old, on AOL. Again, just an observation,( not a thought or an opinion), Those people can be mean, and cruel as Hell.... TRUETH

    The alternative rational you gave was shut down. Since you have no viable explanation yourself, I don't care what your opinion of my opinion is.

    You are at best doing no better than me.
