Smile,Jesus loves you.

How could anybody say this to this child with a straight face?
This is one of the main ojections I have against Christianity. Another disgusting thing to say is...
"God has a plan for all of us."

How could they even think in this way?

RE: Smile,Jesus loves you.
Cognitive dissonance... that's how.

If it doesn't seem that "Jesus loves you", you just rationalize it. Evil in the world? Satan's fault. People who want to be good are doing evil? Free will. Any belief can be rationalized if no single argument is 'out of bounds'.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

Ahh... But to the free will, I always say that it isn't really the child's "free will." to be like this, he probably did nothing wrong....

To me, this is clearly disgusting, and I can't hope but cringe at that phrase.... Btw, can you see the photo in the post, or is it just in the attachment?

RE: Smile,Jesus loves you.
My personal motto is "smile, the world hates you"

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

RE: Smile,Jesus loves you.
The mind of a theist is a mysteries thing.

Like that video in the other thread I think it can be summed up as if something good happens then "God loves you and blesses you", but if 12,000 children die each day (or whatever the number is) then "God works in mysteries ways".
Whatever way it is is chosen by the action itself. Good? God loves you. Bad? God works in mysteries ways.
Its a thing people use to clam their conscious. I mean would you believe in a God that willingly killed off millions of children in a serial killer sort of way? Of course not, so you easy your mind with the "God works in mysteries ways, we can't even comprehend his plan for us" absolutely bullshit spew that your feed yourself.
You then keep telling yourself this, reassuring yourself that "it's Gods will" until you believe it.

This is what I hate most about religion.

What I find most sickening is that if I was still a Fudamentalist, or even a believer I would probably defend that worldview, saying the same thing above.
When I look back at my life as a believer... I want to facepalm, for enternity.

RE: Smile,Jesus loves you.
Yea I don't understand the mentality of it.
God is willing to help your football team win yet he's not willing to feed thousands upon thousands of starving children in Africa?? And you say God is great!?

When my my friend asked me why I deconverted, I showed him the picture.
And I looked into his eyes, and said,
"Say this, without looking away, straight in the face, to this poor kid. Say it to rape victim, say it to an amputee. Say it to a malignantly ill person, can you?"
He answered yes.

Absolutly.Disgusting.

Yip, and yet they continue to view themselves as morally superior.
