I managed to stumble upon a video in which Barack Obama speaked to the
people of America on his policies on religion. He made some really good
points, but in the comments section I saw something extremely ignorant.
It was written by a man who had named himself 'JesusChristRulesYOU'. His
words went as such:

"Sorry but this is a Christian nation and we should only have Christian


presidents and Christian lawmakers. Obama is a colored man and that is
why America is in a recession it is their fault. Plus you have to give
your soul to Christianity because if you don't will you burn in hell
forever and that is a solid fact."

I responded by saying this:



"You know, I thought Christianity was about peace and love. Kindness


to your fellow man, whether he be different to you in skin colour,
sexuality, beliefs etc.

Not condemning a man just because he's different from you, but forming friendships and alliances. A perfect world would have members of all various groups and skin colours and sexualities united as one human
race."


And continued on with:


"As a pastafarian I believe in something different to you. My beliefs may seem silly, may seem like a joke. But I have all the same rights that you have. I have the right to believe in my beliefs, and so do you. But
that gives you no right to murder those who are slightly different. If
there is a god, then he wouldn't care if somebody is gay, straight,
black, white, Jewish, Christian, Atheist, Pastafarian. He would love us
all the same and would allow all in to heaven."


Just some thoughts.

Well, I guess we've found an odd comment. One-in-a-million. But to be fair, these kinds of people aren't uncommon. Look at certain Christians like the guy who set up Burn A Koran day. Look at the Westboro Baptist Church. These people are groups of misguided sheep who are getting the wrong idea of the Christian teachings.

To be fair, when the IDers argue that the universe must have been created they are right and they are wrong. They are right in saying that the universe was created. They are wrong, however, on saying that the universe MUST have been created. The universe could have been created, we don't know. As Bobby Henderson's letter to the Kansas School Board says, "None of us were around to see it, of course". We can't say that the scientists were right and we can't say that the IDers were right. No one can be proven right or wrong on the issue of the universe's creation. We could say that the earth was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster or a Pink Unicorn or my telephone! But none of those theories can be proven, because no one was there to see it.

When I stumble upon comments like that, I have to assume they are some sort of plant by anti-religious trollers. I mean, what are the odds that a comment could truly be THAT bad? I suppose this is approximately the same argument that intelligent-designers use to argue that the universe must have been created, but really, how could someone do that by accident!
