RE: Is believing a choice?
Quote: Unfortunately, atheists hate that Christians proselytize because
atheists hate Christians. Atheists had no problem with a Krishnas
proselytizing in airports back in the 60s and 70s. Only Christians. Because (IN MY OPINION) atheists hate God and
Christians. Investigate for yourself with Muslims, Hindus, Bhuddists,
any other "religion", and find out if they are haunted by atheists. I
have many Muslim internet friends and they tell me that such is not the
case.
I thought religious people were the ones instructed to hate those who don't agree with them.

I don't hate Christians. And hating "God"? Hating a fictional being is the biggest waste of energy. I can't imagine actively hating Sauron from Tolkien's imagination. Do you imagine that we believe in god as a real entity and hate him because he's a threat to our godlessness? No. Imagine me accusing you of hating Santa Claus and you may begin to understand what I mean. You may dislike Santa Claus, but you're not going to base your life around hating him. He doesn't exist. Can you see the waste it would be for an atheist to hate your god?

And Krishnas vs Christians? Do Krishnas actively seek to impose their religion in politics? How many wars have been fought in the name of ISKCON? Not all religions are equal, my friend.

And if you think atheists are just fine with Islam, you've got another thing coming. Claiming one billion followers and supporting things like gender inferiority, genital mutilation, and public amputation for alleged criminals? And that's just a drop in the bucket.

Do some research before you make these claims.
