I have a few t-shirts that Christians get very upset over.

Have you ever read the entire bible?

Fun fact. Christian Bibles that are written in Arabic use the word Allah for God.

If these officers truly trust in their god I suggest they no longer carry firearms or wear their bullet resistant vest. If they have placed all their trust in their god, they won’t need a baton, a taser, OC spray or handcuffs, their god will protect them.
If they trust so much in their god, they won’t need any of the above. Their god will provide in their time of need, correct?

I see someone needs a history lesson. I won’t provide you with the facts because you will just ignore them but do yourself a favor and open a real history book and learn the truth.

You might want to look up the word Allah.

No, they do not.

Prove it. Show me a a tiny bit of evidence to back up your claim and by evidence I mean real facts, not something made up but facts that can be proven with fact checking. I’ll wait.

Man gave those that live in the United States of America freedom of speech, not a god.
Provide evidence of your assertion...I guess the atheists cited in this article and assert the Bible supports the killing of sinners are not in the majority, or, have not read the New Testament...Spoiler alert, the New Testament is rather central to Christianity and commands Christians NOT to carry out judgment (John 8).
Another unproven statement from some bungling atheistic literature. I, personally, read and study my Bible daily. Care to try me out for size?
Destroyer and Patriot:
To provide raw data for your discussion, here's one poll I've seen on the subject. Like most polls it’s a somewhat complex result that doesn’t lend itself well to a bumper-sticker phrase.
Although non-believers scored (slightly) better on Biblical knowledge than Christians in general did, white evangelicals did score higher than atheists did.
On overall religious knowledge, atheists and agnostics scored pretty high. The reason, I believe, is simply this: most non-believers aren’t born that way; they become non-believers after a degree of reflection and reading.
Polls often produce false results and imformation, especially when someone knows how to manipulate the data in their favor, as our Government does regularly. A true test would be to invite Chruistians, atheists, agnostics, etc., to a national Bible quiz and see who wins.
There are at least as many methodological problems with your quiz idea as Pew's poll.
Did you take issue with any particular aspect of their methodology (details are included), or are you making a general comment about polling?
Actually, the answer is both. Polling was invented by hucksters who wish to promote a lie. And it is not a strange idea to pick champions for both sides of an issue, and see who wins. The Philistines picked Goliath, and God picked David. We both know who won, and who lost his head (I Samuel 17).
You’re seriously going to reject any opinion poll out of hand (or do you just reject the ones with which you disagree)?
And the point of picking a “champion” is utterly irrelevant to the question of general knowledge. All that demonstrates is who did better that particular day with those particular questions. It has zero generalized applicability - and it is generalized applicability that is exactly the point that Destroyer was trying to make.
You have hit the nail on it's head. I reject any OPINION poll which can be easily manipulated by the pollsters. I would rather see a confrontation by divergent parties over the truth, which will allow you to learn something worthwhile and invaluable.
Well, I feel that you and I must diverge with your opinion there, though it's been nice discussing things with you (not all disagreements need to be filled with venom, after all).

If it was the Quarn you crazy Christians would be in an uproar about it and us atheist would not have to do anything.
Nice straw man...as one of those "crazy" Christians, I am reading the Qur'an...
What would your thoughts be if a Christian group sought to ban pay-per-view adult channels and HBO from all hotel rooms based on religious grounds?
There have been a number of religious-based efforts over the years to get hotel chains to ditch PPV adult programming, though those hotels that are getting rid of is are mostly doing so because it's no longer profitable (given that anyone who owns a smartphone has access to any flavor of entertainment they want).
destryoer -I would simply not read it if I did not want to. But many Christians have read the quran. It makes us better able to converse with muslims about faith and salvation

I see you don’t visit many atheist web sites or listen to atheist rap. Look up Greydon Square.He and others go after Islam in their music all the time. You should also read The End of Faith by Sam Harris. While you are at it look up Christopher Hitchens on youtube.
I have a shirt that I wear out in public that has a picture of the Prophet Muhammad on it. I say negative things about the Islamic faith often. Atheist are not scared of the Islamic faith and we attack it all the time but being you don’t hang out on atheist web sites, you are not aware of this.
Jump to 1:33 in the song. You want to hear negativity towards Islam, there you go.

This Jesus is never going to return and when you die it is going to be the same as before you where born. You will remember nothing.

How does this tick of liberals?
Happy Thanksgiving to you too.
Merry Christmas to you as well.
If you want to believe you God blesses America, so be it.
Yes, all lives matter.
Yes, there are some radical Islamic that commit horrific acts.
It is nice to read you love your wife.
The above is from an atheist who holds mostly liberal views.

I take it you have never read the Christian Bible. It teaches to kill children if they don’t obey their parents.

Wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds. On a rotating planet, air will also be deflected by the Coriolis effect, except exactly on the equator.
So as an atheist I know why there is wind. We don’t declare it doesn’t exist. We know it exist because of science.

We wouldn’t have had to. The Christians would have thrown a huge fit as soon as it was erected.
