I will start by saying I do believe in the Christian faith. IMO I am not a devote Christian tho. I sin everyday and do things God would not approve of. Not any thing crazy, just cussing, and having angry thoughts about people, things of that sort.
One thing I have noticed here on CM is A LOT of Christianity bashing. I feel as tho if I say I believe in the faith, I will get attacked and have nastiness spewed toward me.
Why is it okay for you to spew your nastiness and discuss your religious views, or lack there of, but If I do it, I am "in people's faces" and "trying to cram my religion down people's throats". Why is it okay for you to express your feelings on such matters but not me?
Why do you hate Christians' so much?
People also are always bringing up what people who CLAIMED a Christian faith did back in the Roman era, come on people really?!? Do we still hate the Germans for what happened in the Holocaust?

I've had discussions with people of many faiths and in my personal opinion Christians are the least intelligent when it comes to debating or even talking about the fundamentals of their beliefs.
Over and over I've been accused of bashing and attacking for simply not being able to accept the answers they give m

Here we go again. I'm not being nasty for stating my opinions and observations. Pardon ME for expecting people to actually LEARN about what they believe in and why before walking around telling other people they should believe the same. If you can't answer the simplest questions then I think you look like a fool- that's just how I see it. All that tells me is that you are a sheep, a follower who can't think for themselves, who blindly believe what others tell them and perhaps are even too scared to actually delve deeper into your faith for fear of what you may find there. I'm not telling you to question your faith. I'm telling you that you should have enough information about it to actually answer questions from people who want to understand it. Have you ever had anyone ask you about your faith? What did you say? 'I believe because... because I just DO'? Yeah... that makes one want to be just like you...

JuLiAnSmOmMy317... well, I'm an Atheist who used to be a Christian. I've studied with JW's , Mormons, Wiccans, Muslims, went to Catholic school and soaked up religion class for 6 years and I STILL will walk into a church and ask Pastors and Priests questions. I'm not afraid of learning or being WRONG.
Oh, I can judge whatever and whomever I want because it's not against MY personal beliefs to do so. I hold everyone to the same high standards I hold myself and I see nothing wrong with that.

I can assure you I will not let this post spin out of control, I'll will just close it before that happens.
Come on now... tell the truth, you're going to close it because it's 'out of control', you're going to close it because you can't keep up with the debating.

To answer your question - no it is not ok to bash Christians but it is also not ok for Christians to be rude, disrespectful and pushy. In my experience Christians who are bashed have in most cases, asked for it.
Why is it so difficult for Christians to just accept that there are plenty of people who do not share their faith or their beliefs? Why do they need to convince us that we are wrong and must adopt their faith?
