I definitely agree.  The Pauline re-writing of 'who was Christ' has totally confused the plot.

My own opinion is that Christ was among the great founding philosophers...along with Socrates, Epicurious, Hobbes, Kant, Hegel and others.  Christ's contribution was humanism: emphasizing the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, rather than divine or supernatural matters.  Today, we pigeon-hole this core philosophy in something called Christian charity...as if it is a side-bar discussion.

Do you think someone who is willing/or wants to disembowel one and strangle another is the best example of wanting to lead us into a more tolerent free society.

Diderot didn't get that far.  He was short of details.   Wink

This virus has American religious nuts getting orgasms over the idea that this virus is Armageddon and the end of times. These brain-dead idiots are all insane. Why do religious fanatics worship brain dead pieces of shit like Donald Trump? I want no part of their SICK religion. Fuck them! If there is a hell they are definitely going there! I hate Ignorant fanatics!!!

Republican Christians generally plant bombs in black churches, or shoot 'em up like Dylann Roof.

Heard many similar stories about Mother Teresa not being as “saintly” as many assume, but then again, they’re just secondhand stories.
So who really knows?

I also read that Mother Theresa confided to a few people late in life that she'd lost her faith, and that to the best of their knowledge, she never believed in God again. It was called her "dark night of the soul."
