    Critical thinking these days demands the recognition that Christians are NOT the enemy regardless of your beliefs. BTW, everyone believes in something.

    Discuss.

    Care to share the critical thinking process that brought you to this conclusion?

    What is an enemy to you may not be an enemy to someone else. Could you define or flesh out what you mean by "enemy"?

    Christians,at least Southern Baptists, are still in the NE preparing and serving food (paid for by donations), helping cleanup destroyed areas, and will help in reconstruction of homes at no cost to the residents. A friend in need........................ DOC

    Tempting.

    Christians argue a lot. They argue philosophy. Sect argues with sect. When it comes to free thinking Christians are down right combative. It is the nature of the religion.

    Yup.

    Christians are not the enemy. The enemy is in the Christian.

    Are you referring to Jesus Christ?
    Maybe the Holy Spirit, or even God himself?

    Sure. Don't even bother to articulate how you're right in terms that non-wackaloon people can understand. Just spout off about how you're right on a forum while your religion and your political party dies. How's that working out for you?

    Sounds to me like the atheists are looking for enemies. Curious.............

    Being that the atheists are the only ones with a doctrine which doesn't explicitly forbid them from abiding by the motto, "Live and let live" (whether or not they always do abide by that is a different story), they don't ever have to look very far.
