Rejecting Christianity

Theistard Mike S. Adams writes that he rejected Christianity "because it would not have allowed me to continue getting drunk and high every night while splitting time between four girlfriends." (Uh huh, this guy had four girlfriends. And I have a bridge to sell you.)

Adams doesn't quite get it, though.

One adopts Christianity (or any other religion) so one can get God's approval for getting drunk and high every night while splitting your time between four girlfriends... or, if one's tastes are more refined and sophisticated, getting God's approval for torturing and murdering Jews, heretics and homosexuals, enslaving blacks, and stealing everyone else's land and resources.


  1. Goddammit! I've been doing it wrong all this time?! Instead of getting married and drinking in moderation I could have been having coke-fueled five-ways? WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME?

  2. Lying for Jeebus much, theistard?



Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
