A Christian is someone who thinks it is more likely that Jonah lived three days in the belly of a whale without air without being pulverised in the fore stomach or being dissolved is the highly acidic main stomach than somewhere along the line, a tall tale got mistaken as history. How could anyone be that aggressively stupid?
The reason is children of Christians are abused and traumatised by being threatened with eternal torture if they dare to doubt blithering nonsense shoved down their throats. That’s why they grow up to be such quivering idiots. Parents should be jailed for this cruelty and have their children taken from them if they persist in abusing them that way. It is almost impossible to cure that phobia. Young children are hard wired to unquestioningly believe their parents for a lifetime.
The #1 reason I am an atheist is my parents did not torment me that way, though a stranger once cornered me while I was waiting for my mom to pick me up from swimming and regaled me with hellfire. My mom just about bit his meddling head off. Hellfire is also the main tool paedophile Christians use to force their victims to comply.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
