And if Atheists are so evil, then how come we don't hear about any violent acts committed in the name of Atheism?

Guess you haven't heard of a little man named Adolf Hitler.

Although, Hitler used religion as a driving force to trick Germany into following him, he was an Atheist and strongly believed in evolution and used that to justify his master race propaganda.

I've heard that claim numerous times, yet no one who makes that claim has ever presented any actual evidence that Hitler was an atheist, based on his own words. They just say it and hope people will accept it unquestioningly. If he never said, from his own mouth or pen, that he was an atheist, I won't assume he was.

Also, it has been pointed out that Hitler rejected Darwinian evolution. However, even if he did accept evolution, so what? If someone misuses a scientific concept, does that make it untrue? Does biological warfare make the germ theory of disease untrue? Of course not.

I hate getting into political arguments on this site, but sometimes I get sucked into them. I guess it's just my nature of not being able to stay silent.

Adolf Hitler was not a Christian. I can say that with no problem. The fact that many atheists and non Christians claim he was, is kind of sad. I say sad, because non believers (those who don't believe in Christ Jesus or haven't put their trust in Him) literally hate Him. The Bible says, "those who hate you, do so because they hate Me."

Adolf Hitler may have said many things that would indicate him being religious to some extent, but his actions did not echo it. The Bible says (paraphrasing), "it is better to be hot or cold than it is to be lukewarm. So God tells us that it is better not to claim to be followers of Christ and not live it than it is to claim to be followers of Christ and not live it. Hitler did not live it.

Hitler was not a follower of Christ just as the KKK are not followers of Christ, even though they try and claim their beliefs are Christian beliefs. They are not.

So whichever religion Hitler truly was, if any, he definitely was not a Christian.

I should point out, at the very least, that not all non-Christians hate Jesus. Many non-Christians don't really care one way or the other, and many non-Christians actually revere him for his teachings and example.

Hitler wasn't an atheist. He also had the Nazis kill homosexuals and used Godly words in his autobiography.

Alan Turing was an atheist who worked with the Allies during WWII who invented an early computing system. He was also convicted in his home country because he was gay.

He was not a Christian, but used religion as a tool to control people,as many bad people do throughout history. He believed in evolution and used that to justify his "master race" theory.

Does that represent all evolutionists?

Of course not, but the original comment I was answering was proposed that there were no violent acts done in the name of atheism. Atheists today are some of the more self absorbed people. Not all, but many. Christians, true Christians, don't push agendas. We preach to the world as instructed to do by Christ and let God handle the rest. If a Christian keeps pushing and shoving their ideals on others, they aren't truly doing the work of Christ.

If atheists are more self-absorbed, then why is it that atheists often give more effort to preserve peace and help others in need? If anything to prompt militant atheism, the likely reason is some sort of religious hypocrisy or action based on religious rule, such as discrimination against the LGBTQ, or richly built churches.

You're meme is showing religious entities. Christianity is not a religion. Christianity is a personal relationship with God. Christian missionaries do a lot of good across the globe. Christian, non denominational churches give so much to their local communities. Ignoring it won't make it not so.

By your definition, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism aren't religions, either, since they are all about the person's relationship with their respective gods.

I get what you're saying, but their beliefs are not the same. Christianity is not a religion.

Christian Missionaries, by definition, are the ones who spread their Christian faith onto others.
While there are some good Christian organizations, they are outnumbered by the anti-LGBTQ Salvation Armies.

As Christians, we are told by God to go into all the world and spread the gospel. We tell others about Christ and that's about it. God does the rest.

And the LGBTQRXZZY.... can give to charity and that's all fine and dandy. I'm not really here trying to measure who's d!ck is bigger. But telling me that Christians are just evil people who judge others, is not an accurate description.
