I sure do agree with you all on this subject. It has bothered me for many years. Christians just can't see the fact that if there is a god responsible for saving someone or something, then he has the capability to save everyone.. Therefore he is responsible for everything, all the pain, death, and destruction. It's so obvious.
There's an excellent article on Huffington Post today, by Larry Womack, entitled "Nobody Cares About Your Damn Religion" that hits this subject right in the center of the target.
Something to think about!
Imagine a small town, with two state roads intersecting in the middle of town.
On the edge of town on the north side is a sign that says "Jesus Saves".
On the edge of town on the south side is a sign that says "There is no God but God, and his name is Allah".
On the edge of town on the west side is a sign that says "Visit us at Bethel Temple" and has a Star of David.
On the edge of town on the east side is a sign that says "There are no gods!"
What is the order (if this was your town) in which these signs would be vandalized?
I'm betting East, South, and West. The sign at the north edge would be protected by the police and have a 24-hour camera on it.
That would be my bet as well.
Enjoyed this, thanks.

'Mountains of the moon' Kasese district in western Uganda. Love it when am here!
Masereka, I have read of the Kasese district in western Uganda. I just now looked it up and here is what I found:
Being right on the Equator, and seeing sights such as this amazes me. What a wonderful country, rich in people, culture and beauty.
I am so glad to read your comment and hope to learn more from you.
I live in northeast Washington State, in Spokane Washington. My home is one block from this lovely public garden:
Spokane was very wealthy during the mining and lumbering days, which have all been exploited and no longer provide the rich income. Those wealthy folks at the turn of the 1880s had parks designed all over the city and had huge mansions. We are enjoying the fruits of that great wealth.
