 The irrationality of the religious or their scared ignorance, lends it self to irrational violence. Other then say, other mentally deranged people, who kills their own children for misbehaving but the irrational religious.

what does it matter if it's 80, 90 or 99% - you only need 5 nutters to fly a plane into a building

Hi Greg,

I've asked an administrator to help us reclaim this discussion.

I agree.

In Sydney, we have a place called The Domain. Every Sunday lots of Charles's go there and say what they have to say.

But really Charles should make his own thread and then say what he wants to say there.

Hi Charles,

You said:

enough to cause the largest tax payer debt ever in history

This response is not an answer to the question. 

What percentage of those people would you say go around the place murdering others?

I don't have a problem with religion or religious people. But I find it interesting how seemingly sane, logical, smart, intelligent people can throw all reason out the window and suddenly make outrageous comments and seemingly lie to themselves.

Maybe if I asked: "What percentage of people caused American debt?" you could give that response.

So I ask you again: Charles,

What percentage of those people(2.5 Billion religious people) would you say go around the place murdering others?

Ah, the sound of crickets... nothing dumb to disturb the tranquility of a board unperturbed by assh*les.

I would like to invite Charles to visit the fine English city of Coventry and trust that he enjoys his stay.

Welcome to Coventry

While the rest of us enjoy a normal, peaceful and productive service.

Hi Charles,

So basically you don't like religious people because many followers of religion kill in the name of religion. 

To put things on perspective. There are about 2,500,000,000(2 point 5 billion) religious Christians and Muslims in the world combined. What percentage of those people would you say go around the place murdering others?

Hi Alecks,

The only thing I despise more than intolerant religious people is intolerant non-religious people, usually because they feel more entitled to themselves.

Sounds like something Oscar Wilde would say.

Also thank you Justalysn......I've enjoyed your posts on other groups. I'll stay here for awhile, but I can't say I'll be reading much more for now.
