The Jews

The american Christians tend to support the Jewish people and want to protect them from their enemies. But this support only extends so far. Christians generally believe that the Jews, most of whom do not believe in the New Testament, will enjoy eternal damnation. Yes, they believe that these good, peace loving, hard working people will be cast in a lake of burning sulfur for trillions of years and then trillions or more years and then trillions of more years! It's sad that the main ally of the Jews considers them worthy of eternal torture. This is far worse than any genocide committed by a cruel dictator. Death by the hands of a dictator or a terrorist is at least fast in a relative sense. Eternal damnation by the hands of a supposed caring and loving God is very slow. In fact, it supposedly has no end. Imagine roasting in fire for eternity. This is just an unbelievably twisted and perverted notion. If this is really true, then the Christian God is much more wicked than Adolf Hitler.

My thoughts exactly! Have you read my essay at:

http://www.flame.org/~cdoswell/Spiritual.html

How does an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent diety send his own creations to eternal torment for not worshipping him? He created them, he knew what choices they were going to make because he created them, so where is the free will in that?

No, but I just did. It looks like we arrived at some of the same conclusions about organized religion. One might come to the conclusion that we compared notes before our writings. But the details of my writings were completely independent as were yours. One difference is that I usually do most of my writing when I'm peeved about something and it probably shows in my style.

I am assuming that your post was in response to the blog as a whole and not the 1st entry alone.

More or less, although the comment about "The Jews" encapsulates a lot!
