The Stupid! It Burns! (vividly convincing edition)

the stupid! it burns! Turning the Tables on Atheists (Part 2)
Perhaps the most vividly convincing evidence of what happens to a society when atheist principles are put into practice on a grand scale are the repressive, totalitarian, genocidal horrors wrought by atheists during the 20th century. Avowed atheists such as Stalin and Mao systematically imposed atheist principles as state policy, and in the processes liquidated more than 100 million men, women and children. ...

Obviously, we Christians have a lot of work to do to help atheists see that even if individual Catholics are [also] guilty of such things, the question of whether God does or does not exist is in no way predicated upon the behavior of those who believe he exists.

There's some stupid in part 1 as well, but nothing nearly as dramatic.


  1. You present a false dichotomy of how when humans do not adopt Christian morals they automatically are followers of atheist policies. I'm afraid that's not the case and it really is unscrupulous on your part to heap on the "atheist = Stalin" label. Thankfully most rational beings are able to see right through your ad Hitlerum tactics. Nice try!

  2. In case you didn't notice, I'm quoting the linked website that makes the comparison, and calling it burningly stupid. Your criticism might be better directed at the original.


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.
