"You don't actually read the bible, you just cherry picked some bits out of the atheist meme book" - actual response I've gotten when I've brought this up.

Sneaky little atheistses, always being tricksy to outsmart the omnipotent & omniscient creator and maintainer of existence itself, precious!

Funny, the whole thing is supposed to be applicable. They can't just ignore the parts that fit your terrible atheist agenda. And these points certainly aren't a matter of ignored context.

I've actually had other Christians argue against the message of love preached by Jesus, saying it's inapplicable here or there. Of course, I can't be a true Christian if I want equal rights for "the gays," healthcare for all, or any of the other various far left (for the US) views I hold.

Note: I'm a Christian who firmly supports the separation of church and state, sooooo...

(To be fair, the Bible doesn't say you should force other people to do those things, it just says you should do them)

The meme says "force you via taxes". And Jesus Christ Himself told people to pay their taxes.

And prevent anyone from being really rich.

And prevent banks from getting too big.

And be hospitable to refugees.

And a whole lot of other things that Y’all Qaeda don’t want.

That's accurate.

Ha.. this is an obligation in Islam. I rather my tax dollars help the needy than help my nation and or other nations bomb nations.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 week ago

this is an obligation in Islam.

Obligation doesn't mean they'll ever apply it. They only ever mention such when it's convenient, to make themselves look like better people. All Abrahamic religions are this way(doesn't mean any other religion's any better either). I live in a muslim country, it's just another tool of the state & the ultra rich to control people.

Uhm.. what. Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam.

There are five key practices that all Muslims are obligated to fulfil throughout their lifetime. These practices are referred to as pillars because they form the foundation of Muslim life. The five pillars of Islam are Shahada, Salah, Zakat, Sawm (fasting), and Hajj. Four categories of people do not pay Zakat: the poor, the indigent, the debt-ridden, and the unfree.

And charity is one of the virtues. Their point is that almost allreligions, and definitely the abrahamic ones, say that charity and altruism are core doctrine. Nobody actually follows through tho unless it's convenient.

That's sad if true. There's no way to track that data unfortunately.

Religious people should be locked up in asylums

Evangelicals should be locked up in asylums. Nothing wrong with being religious if you interpret that by living your best life and helping people.
