    And why would It even be offensive to you in the first place , by saying something's pod about a holy book doesn't mean it's not respecting your belief as an atheist?
    Saying we can't think of a religious text as just a text, that's what fails to respect my beliefs.

    Yes, but not the right to suppress the latter which is what she is demanding.
    I'll be honest I didn't even notice that but my point still stands

    Please accept this award: The most over-sensitive person I've heard from all week. Congratul-****ing-ations.

    Seriously, get over it. If someone said Lord of The Rings was crap to me, I wouldn't be offended. And I worship that more than most Christians I know worship their Bible stories. :rolleyes:

    You've been oversensitive, and if I was the mod who saw your complaint, I would have laughed. It's just a book.

    Also, just to reiterate: it's really rather crap.

    Being a devout christian, I take no offence to atheists' uneducated and insignificant comments regarding my holy book as I can understand the logical, or illogical, inadequacies within the pages of this wonder. However, I have faith which helps me see past these poorly constructed allegories and allows me to take only the lord's comments to heart.

    I mean by saying a holy book is rubbish or crap rather than saying what it is that they disagree with

    You got peoples' opinions then decided to imply our opinions were useless because they didn't agree with your views.

    And you got people's opinions; you even got some quite intricate posts justifying what you found offensive and explaining the other point of view, which seemed to fall on deaf ears. What you didn't get was simple agreement, so you dismissed the views of atheists and invited those of theists.

    TO me, that's saying that the opinion of atheists is pointless... Which again is absolutely hypocritical, you start a thread asking a question, get some answers and then say that the majority of those answers are useless.

    Not cool dude, not cool.

    A few days ago I stumbled upon a thread about religion, someone wrote that religious books are crap, I found this deeply offensive and reported the post, the moderators said they would not ban that post? Am I seriously being unfair? Like there are some religious books which I don't agree with but I'd never say anything bad about them? Like I respect people of all religions, I really was deeply offended by the post but are the tsr moderators being fair?
    Vulguar use of description is probably not respectful. What they mean is those religious books are made up, man made, inherently lying they are divine, and false.

    You believe this too right? You say your holy book is true, and the rest are false. So you're calling all of them deluded for believing in a book which claims it is divine by inherently - in your own belief- full of lies?

    You might not say it, but that is what you believe.

    i don't understand why your getting negged for this! then again i agree with the moderator for not deleting the post .The 'op' is entitled to his opinion, offensive or not, as long as he refrains from singling out a particular religion.
