Stuff Christians Say
These are actual things I am told at my school every day by my certified religion teachers, who apparently have studied theology their entire lives. My fellow classmates and I are tested on their words. I put this in the real life debates with theists section because these are real arguments Christians (Roman Catholics specifically) use, accompanied by some other random stupid stuff they say. Also my first thread. Sorry if I'm doing something strange.

"I'm sorry to say this, but dogs can't go to heaven, because they don't have souls." - a theologian with a master's degree in theology

"... And Jesus will come down to earth, flying on a cloud, playing a trumpet, and lift all of his sheep up to heaven. That will be the end of the world when atheists will finally suffer for their mortal sin." - the same theologian

"In my head, I picture God to be, like, a daddy. What do you guys picture him to be?" - my current religion teacher

When I asked why men are told by God to kill even though the commandment says 'Thou Shall Not Kill': "Well... Sometimes people take things that are yours and won't give it back!" - former religion teacher

When I explained the scientific reason as to why people are gay after she was explaining why gays go to hell: "Dawww Kaitlin, you just say the darndest things. Don't over think it so much." - current religion teacher

"Don't get tattoos or piercings; that puts holes in your body, which is a temple for the Holy Spirit!" - current religion teacher

"If you have sex before you're married, you'll get an STD and die." - former religion teacher

"Yes, we as Christians are called to be hypocritical sometimes." - current religion teacher

"Agnostics and atheists... They aren't the nicest people, if you know what I mean." - current religion teacher

Three more years of this. Lol. What do YOU have to say to these? There are so many points you could make; go at it. Sorry if this was too long.

Don't recommend them, but don't see them as evil.
Pity you can't enrol at a sane school. No

Oooh, the Holy Spirit is seeping out of your soul. Better watch out! Lol, kidding.

Humans already have billions of holes in them.

Best not mock the Holy Spirit, it's the one unforgivable sin - anything else you may repent and be saved, but mock not the H.S. or you're irredeemable.

I made fun of him once and he slimed me. Who you gonna call?

"OMG, [XYZ] happened! The rapture is obviously right around the corner!"

LOL. They've been saying that for thousands of years using every "sign" they can get their hands on.

And then they contradict themselves and say "only God knows when the rapture will be".

I'm surprised he/she said "Don't over think it so much." and not just "Don't think about it at all."
Since the first statement implies you can think about it some. And as we know, any amount of thinking is detrimental to their cause.

RE: Stuff Christians Say
It is beyond me why a Jehovah Witness will say they can't allow a dying family member to receive a blood transfusion because the bibble prohibits ingestion of blood. Yet if I let my child die because from not getting proper medical attention, I'd be in jail. But they are exempt bc of religion. Not to mention that to my way of thinking, they are nine kinds of wrong to let a child die. How can they say that's god's will and that what they did is morally right?

I've heard many of the above sayings too.

But my all time favorite is the one when I'm discussing the lack of historical proof, flaws in the ID theories that are still so popular here in the south, etc., the wrongs done in the name of god, as to why I don't believe, and they always get back to, drumroll please...

"You just gotta have faith!"
