    Don't you have anything else better to do? We get it, you hate religion.
    Do you know of a greater evil that I should be fighting?

    What other group of organizations has done as much harm. Name it and I will change my focus.

    You are missing the point -- fighting evil creates evil. You defeat evil when you lay down your sword, and shake hands.


    What have you accomplished since you have joined this site? NOTHING....absolutely nothing.

    So when Jesus fought against evil when he was tempted by Satan, he created a lot more evil.

    That is a rather strange thing for a Christian to say.

    How easily you lie.

    Many cultures pass on names of those they wish to show respect to. The Muslim community pass on the name Mohamad more than Christians do with the name of Jesus. This name respect is lacking in the Christian cultures.

    I think it is due to the fact that none in the Abrahamic cults can justify Yahweh/Jesus’ genocide of mankind.

    Yahweh’s son Jesus has not been deemed worthy of respect for moral reasons. Christians recognize the imperfections and agree with the ostracising of the name Jesus. Hence their not passing on the name and showing disrespect. Jesus is as unworthy to literal reading people in the myriad of Christian cults, as is Yahweh.

    Are the myriad of Christian and Catholic cults showing a lack of respect for the name of Jesus as compared to the respect Muslims show the name Mohammad?

    "Jesus" is a common name in the Spanish-speaking world. So there's that.

    Not so much in the English-speaking world, but consider that what seems like respect for one culture may seem like disrespect in another. It's common for WASPs like myself to name children after living relatives--in the high-brow world, it's almost necessary to name the first son for the other, making him "junior." But for Jews, naming someone for a living relative is strictly forbidden--it's consider very disrespectful, since the user of that name is still alive, and no one should wish them dead.

    If someone in the English speaking world called their son "Jesus," it would be seen as presumptuous and sacrilegious. Heretical, even.

    More like hey-zus but I will give you that the Spanish for some reason do show more respect than the rest of the Christian world.

    Yet Christians and Catholics do not mind using the names of all their saints and prophets.

    You are showing them as having a double standard, I think, to justify their lack of respect.
