Why am I anti-Christian when it’s irrelevant to my life?

I make a lot of videos against Christianity. This might seem a bit obsessive, when Christianity is an irrelevance to my life. But there is a good reason for it.

    Darryl; I am anti christian because. They are to quick to say I’m not perfect just forgiven. Also most are very dishonest. One example My son was in the hospital his socalled friend sold all my son’s fire wood without permission. The says I didn’t steal it because the guy never paid me for it. I have found that most will lie, cheat steal and whatever under the guise that Jesus forgives them. Were as a non beliver has to look at themself in the mirror and say ” you really fucked that up!” It is knowen fact that here in the USA, the prison population is mostly Christian.
    If there be any truth to these fairytales they Christian is the AntiChrist.

    Darryl: This a very good commentary by you; and I know, from my own personal history and long study that you are spot on.
    I know, now from modern, scientifically based psychology. it is impossible to persuade anyone to abandon a Belief(I defined as ‘any faith unfounded on fact’) they have embraced and refuse to, in any way, open their frozen mind and emotions, to consider any options. I think,, for most the blockage, the thick concrete mental wall they have constructed, allows them to evade/avoid any that might cause them to have to alter their religious prejudice. They have so deeply embedded the fear that it is hopeless to even begin a discussion on this topic. They are thoroughly addicted to this false idea. I’ve personally been there.
    A couple of good quotes that honest seekers live by:
    1. The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
    2. This ties in with Bertrand Russell’s (who made the mental/emotional journey to overcoming ignorance) statement : The big obstacle is to “blindly accept a body of so-called knowledge that is fragmentary, unimportant, and in large part, untrue.”
    The beginning of mental maturity is to face and work hard to overcome any deep prejudice/addiction. This not a project for the mentally lazy. But the result is the thrill of breaking the mental chains we were indoctrinated with when we were too young to be intellectually objectively critical to assess the poison of that indoctrination.
    Anyone experienced in helping people overcome the common addictions(Drugs, Gambling, etc.) knows that we waste time trying to pass a message they are so hopelessly unreachable as to
    even begin to listen with an open mind.
    I agree with you that we are only interested in those who WANT help; not those who NEED it, but DON’T WANT it.
    Best Regards till next time, Bob Smith

    Being raised Catholic, I, too, am now anti-Christian. I am seeking and questioning to find my own peace, not one that is indoctrinated by others. You are correct, this is a huge hurdle. And, for some, it may be easier to accept what they’re told versus discover something different. That’s how they find their peace. What I find difficult is living in this society knowing many Christians are less willing to accept me, than I am willing to accept them. The political climate in the US is currently reflecting this. Most times I avoid religious or theological conversations because those that believe are so stuck in their beliefs there is no room for alternate views. Thank you for being open with your thoughts, it is encouraging for those of us who deal with it silently.
