Atheists are like 5% of the population. Christians are not an oppressed minority. Stop afcting like one.
Because the people who want to foster their religious beliefs on others (Hobby Lobby). promote their religion over others (10 commandments statute in courthouse). claim God sent a natural disaster as punishment (Pat Robertson), demand everyone follow their dogma (contraception and the Catholic Church), all claim to be Christian.
Generalizations are rarely true...
it seems like in this day some people try to find a way to have something against Christains they need to learn not all Christians are the same and they need to get their head out of there ***** they keep thinking that Christains suppose to know every verse from the bible and act according to it, They just need to learn nobody is perfect including Christians.
Well, you all are hypocritical. That much at least, is true for any Christian. I don't believe any of you follow the "clothing made of 2 or more fabrics is evil" rule. And if you did, that would be reason enough to laugh.
Posting a self-righteous generalizing comment in response to a generalizing comment....Nope, I have no idea why people consider most christians to be holier than thou self-righteous killjoys.
You're engaging in the same behavior that you're accusing non-christians of. Baseless generalizations. My point was, how is your being self righteous excuse their being self righteous?
they got a terrible track record
It wasn't the atheists demanding people convert or face death during the inquisiton....
no. but you do seem to think all non christians hate christians....thus doing exactly what you're accusing them of.
Your question is titled, "In this day and age, why is it that people GENERALIZE ANYONE who is christians to be bad, hypocritical, etc." How is that not generalizing People who are not christian?
Anecdotal evidence is not evidence. Secondly, it's in plain black and white what you wrote. you said "why do people generalize anyone who is christian to be bad and hypocritical?" That's no different than saying, "Why do christians generalize anyone who is not christian to be sinful and hateful towards christans?"
People look for the bad they can perceive in the group they dislike, at least in part, to justify their own rejection of it and as means to self-comfort.
only God is righteous and all holy and good. just because you're Christian does not necessarily mean that you hold yourself up in a godly manner in your every day living. stop caring about what others think and start being the change you want to see.
no, even believers sometimes act all holier than swiss cheese. no immortal man or woman or child is more than anyone else; that's just false ego at work.
I'm just answering your question; it was not a judgment upon you in any way.
there are cures for fundamentalism
People generalize and judge no matter what . Who cares though , it's your choice to allow someone elses opinion to effect you or not .
Because we only see the really stupid, angry, over the top Christians represented in the media. Like any other group, the media focuses on extremists and that is what we see and believe. There are good Christians, good Muslims, good Jews and good atheists.... then again, atheists don't isn't anyone is going to hell if they don't give into peer pressure.
Of course, not everyone does that. Some do because some "Christians" are that way, and they like feeling that people who proclaim Christianity are not morally superior in any way. And it is a human tendency to be attracted to a bad generalization that makes a group seem inferior. In a nutshell, I guess it makes nonChristians more comfortable.
No, just most Christians. And, yes, I am one too. And this is how I know.
They try to make Christians look bad to justify their atheism
Atheism doesn't need to be justified. Concepts that have no proof or evidence need to be justified. Like Religion.
The existence of God is actually very logical. And actually religion can't be disproven, just as Santa Claus's existence can't be disproven.
You're committing a logical fallacy. An unfalsifiable hypothesis cannot be proven, therefore saying "god's existence is logical" makes no sense. If you can't use logic to prove god's existence, how can you say it's logical to believe in god? Secondly, I can't prove that I can turn invisible when no one looks at me. Does that mean you should believe it? Of course not. So why should you expect me to believe in a god that has no evidence for it's existence. If there is no evidence for something's existence, then it cannot be said to exist. It's far more logical to believe we evolved from a common ancestor to apes, than it is to believe a god created us. Mostly because we have tons of evidence for evolution and none for creationism. In a court of law you rule based on evidence, if there is no evidence, there is no way you'll win. Which is why slander, abuse, and stuff like that is hard to prove, without any evidence apart from "Well you gotta believe me!" you're not gonna win the case.
The existence of God is the least logical speculation I've ever heard, but this isn't a question for that particular debate,
That wasn't my point. My point was unbelief doesn't need to be justified.
