"Atheists have been among the most abused parties in the history of the church."To which I must remind Atheists:
Atheists have tortured and killed FAR more humans than Christians have, and by orders of magnitude. And that within the last century, under Scientific Humanism and New Man evolutionary theories of eliminationism.One of the main attractions of Atheism is its detachment from moral systems, giving the Atheist the often touted feeling of the exhilaration of freedom, i.e. personal anarchy with respect to moral restraint. When Atheists clump together, it results in the focus on elimination of moral restraint from the society which gave them the freedom to associate. In societies where they succeeded in their revolutions against moral restraint, hundreds of millions died at their hands.
An Atheist with only his own "wisdom" to guide his behaviors is far more dangerous than "the church".
