And as usual, even when someone says "still, a fun topic", they have to flail wildly out of hatred at religion.
i really don't want to invoke the wrath of the good Dr. Godwin, but in terms of the greatest genocides in human history, I suppose you've chosen to ignore A**** H***** and the N***s, as not fitting with your thesis, unless you really do believe that he was motivated by religious beliefs.

I didn't ignore Adolf, but what he did compared to what Church has been done through centuries, there's no way to compare both. Both are equally wrong if you want that statement but in numbers and figures, we can say that Adolf was an amateur. Now, wiping entire civilizations, now we are talking.

Then let's throw Stalin, Mao, Kim Il Sung, Sukarno, Amin and Pol Pot into the equation, for good measure. But, "who's counting?" --Apparently, not all.

Well, we can make a genocide ranking for the sake of it.

Not only Galtieri, but Videla, Massera and the whole happy bunch. I've seen that you tried to type in spanish, good attempt, but Google translator fails. Remember that.
Catholic church did a good job during the military government hiding proof and helping the military men to spot "communist" nests. Of course, the result was a lot of people killed and missing.

Usted entiende que el papa nuevo es participante de una manera o de otra. Argentina no tiene mucha razon de mantener su propio orgullo ahora. Mi hermano Osvaldo Hirschmann, argentino y pastor luterano, me dice que algunos de las mas grandes politicos de Argentina son fascistas ahora misma. That's my spontaneous translation, no "google," and I'm sure you understand me  well. I also know that the USA is worse in many ways, but not in dropping dissidents into the South Atlantic from helicopters. That was a peculiar Argentinian specialty. What an innovation! Un fracaso!

I'm just thankful that some un-named moderator put this pitiful thread in the proper forum.

They didn't use helicopters, they used big planes. And yeah, right now, government is quite fascist, they are killing natives in order to give land to multinational companies. I am not proud of anything (about the pope) actually, I find quite amazing that people are proud of having a pope, I guess catholic argentineans are proud, I am not since I am not catholic.

These types of threads always make me feel so incredibly sorry for the OP. What horrible things they must've experienced at the hands of some religious person in their lives to have such a virulent hatred of the whole thing.... very much akin to, for example, someone who was mugged by a black person become racist against all.

I hope your life gets better.
I've had very good interactions with religious people. Never actually had a problem with them until some of them started to find out I was an atheist. Even so, I know many very good religious people that I work with. Importantly, tehy have something I like to call "a sense of humor."


PS, Old Adolf was a Catholic, s'where he got his Jew hating from.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

Why would a zombie want people to eat its body?

They eat the brains to take the pain away. I was about to post a clip but it would probably be to extreme for a nice site like this.

Jesus was a zombie because he rose from the grave, not because they eat his body. Oh hell here's the clip:Why Zombies Eat Brains !! - YouTube

Now this thread should get relegated to the Fun & Games forum?

Any serious discussion has long passed.
