Don't Stray
Participants:
Please don't let the true Christian issue take over the topic. My suggestion (not an edict) is to use the dictionary definition of a Christian for the purpose of this thread.
Do not let this issue drag out much longer.
Also remember this isn't a chat page. Too many short posts.
As usual, do not respond to this message.
Thanks
AdminPD

Not A General Discussion
This thread is not a general discussion of supposed Christian moral superior attitude.
Message 1 had a very specific issue to be addressed.
Butterflytyrant writes:
I have noticed that many religious people seem to believe that they hold some sort of moral high ground. They seem to believe that because they follow the teachings of a particular faith, they automatically become superior to others when it comes to interpretation of scripture, moral and ethical judgements etc
One of the reasons for this claim often stems from the idea that their particular religion or religion in general has a lower kill rate than no religion.
Portillo provided this claim in Message 87
Atheistic regimes have killed over 100 million people. Thats 10,000 times more than all religious atrocities put together since the beginning of time.
I have heard this claim made many times. I have seen it brought up in debates and now it appears here.
I would like to challenge those who believe this to be true to support it.
Questioning anyone's stance on anything else would be off topic.
Please direct any comments concerning this Administrative msg to the General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures (aka 'The Whine List') thread.
Thank you
