However, if "Chistianity Is A Fraud" like Mr. Berger says, then you all need to know the facts.

Subject: Chistianity Is A Fraud
Dear Hitlerette: You are a Christian fundamentalist. But you and your ilk don't realize that Christianity is perhaps the biggest fraud in human history.It is a religion based on ignorance and lies,and a complete corruption of Judaism,out of which it grew.
The notion that God somehow chose a young girl in ancient Palestine out of the blue 2,000 years ago in order to impregnate her with his "son" ,in order to have him brutally executed to atone for the sins of mankind(at least those stupid enough to fall for such an idiotic notion) is so ludicrous as to be beyond belief.
And that the world was created in six days by God,Adam and Eve actually existed,as well as a talking serpent, and that Noah and his family also existed along with their preposterous ark with two of every species of animal, etc.
How can any one be so stupid as to believe in such childish twaddle?
Don't Christians have the sense to realize that Genesis is nothing but an allegory? My gosh, the ancient Sumerians already had an advanced civilization 6,000 years ago.
What about the countless people who lived before Jesus? Did God consign them to hell because they had the misfortune to be born before his "son"?
And what about Muslims,Jews,Hindus,Buddhists, Wiccans,etc,as well as atheists and agnostics? The idea that a kind and loving God would allow all these people to go to hell because they didn't accept Christ as their "savior" is imbecilic.
And what about primitive tribes in remotes areas who never get to hear of Jesus? This isn't their fault.
Is it fair that individuals such as Mahatma Gandhi and the Dalai Lama shopuld be doomed to eternal hellfire despite all the good they have done? Or that some evil, cruel,greedy,power humgry and lying scoundrel gets to enjoy heavenly bliss for eternity if he or she just happened to repent and accept Jesus as "savior"?
If this is so,then God is an evil monster,and I wouldn't want to be in heaven with him or have anything to do with him.
Christianity makes absolutely no sense. It's just a collection of stupid ideas which too many people blindly accept,including you.
You aren't a good and moral person, you're a nasty,bigoted and ignorant bitch. You are living proof that being religious is absolutely no guarantee of being a moral and virtuous person.
I don't believe in a God who would consign people to eternal hellfire just because they happened to be homosexual. Surely God has infninitely more important matters concerning him than what certain people do in private in their own bedrooms. Why should he be so obsessed with such trivial matters?
Christianity has messed up the lives and minds of countless people in the past 2,000 years making themintolerant,self-righteous busybodies and filling them with an irrational fear and hatred of normal human sexuality. Sure,Islam is horrible.But Christianity is no better.
Christianity is a religion based on ridiculous false premises.
The story of the virgin birth and resurrection is nothing but a pretty fairy tale.It has absolutely no basis in historical fact.
The idea of the "virgin" birth is based on a mistranslation of the Hebrew word Almah,which means a young woman. But it was translated into English and other European languages as virgin. The two words were sometimes interchangable in the past.
Why do so many adults blindly accept a story story which is no more real than Santa Claus,the tooth fairy or Paul Bunyan?
Jesus was a Jew,and never thought of himself as anything but a Jew.
He was a great moral teacher, and nothing but that,but all manner of myths arose after his death,including the miracles and the resurrection etc.
Sorry to upset you, but these are the facts,ma'm.
