UPDATED: Isn't It Wonderful How All The Christians Love Each Other?

The title comes from one of my favorite lines from Christopher Hitchens whenever someone brings up to him how different Christian sects and churches quarrel with each other over whose is the true church.

Well, as this debate forum demonstrates, the argument between Catholics and Protestants goes on and on. If you scroll down a bit, you can see my post, where I try to stir things up by telling them all, Catholics and Protestants, that their god does not exist. Unfortunately, it appears that I have been ignored. But if you would like to throw in some irreverent contributions, feel free to do so. Or, just sit back and watch the silly back and forth exchange!

UPDATE: Oh, and as commenter Bullet pointed out, the forum has been ongoing since last July!

I could only read a few of the posts because it made my head hurt. The best part of that whole stupid debate...was stuff like this; "no, you are wrong!" followed by "God Bless".

Dude!

You should have mentioned that the forum was started when the relevant story was printed in JULY!

When I looked a few minutes ago, they were up to 900 pages and the last reply was today! Pardon the expression, but, Jesus Christ(!), are these people stupid.

It's not surprising, though. You'd be amazed at the minute theological (mythological) interpretations that Protestants argue over. At least American Catholics usually have the decency to keep it to themselves.

Hell, even Buddhists occasionally beat the living shit out of each other.

Tell me about it! The squabbling idiots in that forum are one of the best arguments for atheism I can think of. If they can't agree on what is necessary in order to be "saved", then how can I believe any of them?

Hi Tina! I'm surprised you couldn't access the link. I wonder why that is.
