Since I'm getting a bunch of messages whining about how I'm not making Christians feel welcome here on IAM, and how it's not fair for me to say anything negative about Christianity (in a “don't judge my beliefs and I won't judge yours” kind of way). So I'll just write my response here, to save people the effort of sending me messages on it:

Christianity, as a historical whole, is evil. You want that backed up with facts? It's not hard. You want me to list all ways and times Christianity has declared a destructive xenophobic and genocidal war on other cultures and other ideas? It's not hard.

Christianity long ago declared this war on the rest of the world, and I — and all other people who value their freedom — have a responsibility to speak out against this scourge when called to.

After you're done realizing all the evil that Christianity has committed — and continues to commit — try and list the “evil” that the body modification community has forced on others. Good luck finding anything. And I'm not interested in hearing the ridiculous “but we've changed” arguments about modern Christianity. I'm no more cool with Neo-Nazis than I am with Nazis, nor am I OK with the 21st century KKK, and attempting to transform a by definition evil empire into something benign simply isn't possible.

Nor am I interested in hearing any “but you're blaming Christianity for the Church's evils”. The Church is who created and molded this mythos and you can not separate the two. The world won't be a truly pleasant place until Christianity — and every other misguided destructive religion — is wiped off the face of the planet.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
