    Am I reading this right? You're saying there are Christians who on some level, support branding kids with a cross? Please say I misunderstood.

    Sounds like this guy belongs in a movie, as the crazy fanactical religious stereotype.

    It's not a Christian problem it's a warped human nature problem. Nowhere in the Bible does it say to burn a cross into your arm. There will always be elements in the population who act contrary to their beliefs. Now, atheists like Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot acted precisely according to their worldview.
    Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
    who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
    who put bitter for sweet
    and sweet for bitter.

    Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    and clever in their own sight.

    Isaiah 5:20-21

    Ah, gotcha.... so Christians get to disavow any nutcases acting in the name of Jesus, but any one who is crazy and atheist... well thats just the natural result of atheism..

    The difference is that this particular Christian was acting CONTRARY to the Christian worldview whereas the murderous dictators acted ACCORDING to their worldview.

    I don't think you'll find many atheists who say those dictators act in their worldview. And it really depends on what Christian you are talking too.. when souls are at stake, anything is justifiable for some people.

    Then this would be true of every atheist, which it obviously is not.

    Furthermore, I have no doubt that if bin Laden could, he would wipe out several major cities. Do you deny this?

    Because many atheists act on borrowed capital. From where is morality attained other than what is relative to society?

    Only according to you.
    Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
    who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
    who put bitter for sweet
