You can't prove it's incorrect, i can't prove Christianity is incorrect because u cant disproof someone's beliefs... But i can disproof the Bible..

Alex, does the Bible not say that there is salvation only through Christ?

I'm fine with anyone being atheist. We all have free will and I respect their right to choose so.

so you believe that your religion, which has no supporting evidence, is the one true religion and it isn't okay to believe anything else. I'm not sure if it's possible to be more closed minded than that.

feels like a loaded question. But Yes, for reasons I've previously explained.

so it isn't ok to be any religion except Catholic in your world?

is it "ok" to be "incorrect"?
hypothetically if Atheism is correct, only then it is ok.

I understood "OK to be" as in acceptable, not illegal. not as in "atheists are correct"

I agree an atheist has the constitutional and human right to be an atheist. I simply don't believe they are correct, or its ok to believe in no God.


Can you give evidence to where the Church is ok with atheistism? Catholic Doctrine is "Salvation only through the Church" and the Church wishes all to be saved, so the Church wouldn't be accepting of atheism.

your right, there is only 1 truth, but until we know what that truth is, everyone's guesses are equally valid.

if I'm reading your opinion correctly, you don't agree with freedom of religion or the constitution. right?

you're neglecting the fact that you only "believe" that your religion is correct rather than actually being able to prove you are correct; thus you can't actually say "Catholicism is true" and therefore you can't say that there is only one truth. Neither can you claim to be "right". The strength of your claim necessarily rests on the strength of your evidence to support that claim. So you may be able to say that "according to your superstitions atheism is wrong", but you can make no stronger claim than this.

In Catholicism, you can't even make that claim though as your own church is ok with atheism now, so you're going against the teachings of your church....but that's besides the point.

The point is, that you can't objectively claim that atheism is not Ok based on religious superstitions. You thus have to find an external measure by which to judge atheism not ok.

saying "It's ok for an atheist to be an atheist, is ok for a Christian to be a Christian..." is Relativism.
there can't be 2 truths. so there is 1 truth which is right. everything else is wrong because it is not the 1 truth.

the only people who would agree to this post are atheists.

As a Catholic I believe the Catholic faith is the only way, and everything else is wrong and therefore not ok.

of course it is ok

this would be the same thing if say, a Christian tried to force someone of a different religious belief to be Christian

yeah I'm condemning their hateful and bigoted views you worthless troll.

that's not the same as condemning their views on spirituality and the divine (or lack there of)

then again what more can I expect from the man who argues that dictators are the victims when people demand to be treated like people and defended the positive side of mass murder.

najam may be not all there, but at least he is arguing his beliefs, your just a piece of shit twisting logic and truth to piss people off and intentionally spread chaos and lies.

"I hope you voters aren't from America where it's supposed to be OK to disagree with the opinions and beliefs of others." *proceeds to condemn people for disagreeing with his views*

it was a majority vote that being atheist is not ok... that is an attack. one can disagree with an opinion without claiming the opinion has no validity or right to exist.

God loves us all. wether we believe in him or not.

1 year, 8 months ago

no one as far as I know is attacking atheist.

1 year, 8 months ago

I love how the votes are 2 to 1 against atheism being ok.

I hope you voters aren't from America where it's supposed to be OK to disagree with the opinions and beliefs of others.

do you really think God would prefer theists of other religions worshipping other God or Gods? calling him by a wrong name and attributing words and commandments to him that you feel he never said?

yeah, that's way better! if anything other religions should be way worse than a simple lack of faith in your limited self righteous perspective.
