Again, I post this with a cringe because I love my Christian friends and respect them. But this is a snarky depiction of a real problem of mine. I'd love to hear how Christians respond to this, how they are able to have this make sense.
Don't worry, those starving kids are part of god's plan, right? I am sure they will be grateful to play such an important role in the world by starving to death. Prayer is useless to all but the one praying to feel better about themself.
This is awful, but Americans forget about the rest of the world. Wake up and realize that Gods not helping you and he's not helping them. You can blame God for unanswered prayers, or you can finally realize he doesn't exist. Wake up!
God loves white, first world countries where they have the best technology, science, medicine, and plenty of food for everyone.

Both are child abuse.
Belief, Agnostic Atheist, God Is, Child Abuse, Funny Stuff, Thought, Kid, Bad Religion
Child abuse, plain and simple. children, education, indoctrination, religion, church, god, faith, teaching, school, babies, atheism, critical thinking, free thought, politics
Both are child abuse. Threatening a child and scarying them with religion no matter what source you are quoting is abusive. Also, when religion is used as a threat, it may turn them away from religion of any type or learn to fear God which is not what the Bible teaches.
Accurate and so sad. When I think it has been going on for thousands of years and working with kids and adults alike.
Both are child abuse. Why on earth would anyone do either of these, there are other acts of discipline you know.
innocent if you blame it on an imaginary friend... - (torture)(child abuse)(religion)(monotheism)(parenting)(brainwashing)(christian cult)
So, it's not considered child abuse when you put God or religion into the equation? That's kinda scary, right?
Child abuse isn't any different than indoctrinating your kid with religion.
Ahhh, the double standard that IS Christianity.
god is a child abuser.
Anti Religion, Atheism Religion, Jesus Teaching, Atheist Atheism, Teaching Children, Children Indoctrination, Fuck Religion, Brainwash Children
It's just wrong to brainwash children into feeling broken and confused, before they are old enough to form their own opinions. It's complete nonsense.
Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Children, Indoctrination, Taught Religion, Child Abuse, Torture, Death, Murder, Sin, Morality, Jesus. Teaching a child the only way to be a good person is to "wash themselves in the blood" of a human sacrifice because they were "born bad" (into "sin") is unfounded, immoral, illogical and may scar that child for life.
Stop teaching religion to children. People love to talk about video games and TV and movies teaching children violence, even though there has never been one scientifically designed study showing it to be true. Yet, they have no problem lying to and terrorizing children with god and religion. This is emotional and mental child abuse, plain and simple. #atheism
Child abuse in the name of religion... Children Are Born Innocent Period.

Monotheism: the great unmentionable evil at the center of our culture by Gore Vidal, which just kinda shows that god is worse than Stalin & Hitler combined! - A.R.
A lot religious people will of course disagree with this, claiming that their god is all about love and that so is their religion or something like that. All they do is show ignorance about their own religion, both it's dogma and history.
This kind of thinking is scary and ungodly. There is only one true God. And he loves us all. He doesn't loath women at all or think them subservient. Remember Martha and Mary. The woman at the well and his mother? God is Love.

Really, I’m just ashamed to have ever been apart of a belief system that convinces kids they were flawed and guilty before they were even born.
According to science she is also disposable...and according to religion she is a blessing...just like the religion nazi who supposedly doesn't believe in god, they twist the truth & spend an awful lot of time fighting something they say doesn't exist
Ignorance, misinformation, deluded thinking and misconceptions, and flawed perceptions and incorrect easoning are truly damaging and lead people away from the truth...religion teaches what science claims to be teaching in above pic...if any religion teaches the opposite then it is dead or maimed.

truth... and yet president carter never seems to get any credit for anything... this is yet another reason why a lot of organized religions (i said a lot, not all people) seem to oppress women. Because they are man's interpretation. President Carter, I applaud you for being a feminist and articulating this so well.

Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Women, Bigotry, Sexism, Misogyny. The truth is that male religious leaders have had - and still have - an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women. They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter. Their continuing choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world.
Yep. And the further truth is that some male religious leaders who affirm this statement remain blind, for their own selfish ends, to how through their silence and complicity or active choice they subjugate women in more subtle ways. The turning point will come when each and every last one of us, male and female, cultivate our essence and honor one another. ~ Dawn Richerson, Author of Cultivating Essence http://cultivatingessence.org

Women (and all people) can support any religion they want. Just don't inflict your beliefs on others. And certainly don't allow politicians to inflict those beliefs on a secular society. America's founders believed in the separation of church & state.

Another example of Christianity destroying self-worth, in this case that of women. A lot of women teach, are not interested in children, and are independent of their SO's. How is this kind of malice toward our own species so widely accepted? If the number of people who read the bible was equal to the number of people who say they read the bible, Christianity would have been destroyed long ago. People just want a magic book they can pick and choose the answers they like from.
Women and the Bible. 1 Peter and 1 Timothy have some douchy New Testament ideas.

You will love me too, and do what I say, without ever questioning me, or I will punish you with the worst torture you can imagine for the rest of your existence.

Women should be the first to quit christianity ^^I vehemently disagree. These are all Old Testament laws. Jesus (or at least the Jesus I know) is a feminist, and a socialist. If anything, we need more feminists in Christianity so our houses of worship won't back-slide.
Women should be the first to quit christianity. Why do so many Christians ignore this stuff but not other things?
Women should be the first to quit Christianity but thanks to cognitive dissonance as well as lacking the courage to stand up for their value and worth as a person…
