How can a person who seems so nice believe something like that?
It tells you a lot about their sense of justice, infinite punishment for finite crimes is a moral atrocity.

It's power of indoctrination (belief) and compartmentalization (being nice about other things than belief) at work.

Or he is just a dick who only appear nice at first to better sell his opiate to masses.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

So, you discovered what xianity actually is.

One cannot in all fairness expect better of a cult devoted to death.

I cannot comment on your friend. That's that individual's business.

I have learned that in life people come and go.

Perhaps it's time you simply moved on. I've done it often and it is not hard.

When you finally do return, you find the same people doing the same things.

Meanwhile, you've changed. You've grown.

Life's too short to worry about morons.

Good luck. Smile

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
