Guys, I never pushed my views beliefs opinions on any one, simple asked a question. Not trying to segregate, separate, etc. Just looking for people I may have things in common with. I have friends and relatives that aren't christian and I have no problems with them. I really like playing this game and feel I have been respectful to everyone I have chatted with and interacted with. It was just a question to see if anyone with a similar interest or belief was interested in an Alliance.

 

I m also open to starting an Alliance with anyone who likes the Denver Broncos, or Ohio State Buckeyes. (I hope I didn't offend any Michigan Fans:))

1. You sure did. How did you define fanatics, though?

 

2. Are all born again Christians fanatics? Because that seems to be what you're saying here.

3. So, again, what exactly separates a "fanatic" from a "normal" religious person?

 

Anyone who believes something by the word is a fanatic to me.

Therefore, if someone is a "true" born again, he believes without any question, hence a fanatic.

Truly and utterly believing in an invisible being, because its written in an old book, gathered and collected by Sct. Jerome a couple of hundred years after the most recent events.....

Truly fearing damnation as a result of ones lack of faith....

Homophobe in the name of Lord...... because of the words of Paul (AD 200+/-)  lol

The list is quite long actually.

 

Following something blindly, without a critical thought, is the act of a fanatic!

 

As the subject of this whole "argument" is imaginary, it's not really worth the time writing these words..... so i feel no need to continue it really. These fingers have typed enough about this waste of time in the past anyway.

Fair play man, don't let my ramblings get to you, as there is no malice involved. ;)

I just don't want anyone getting offended, by my ques. That's why I left the ques. general. I am here to play a game, but was looking for people with common interests or beliefs and there wasn't any other way of finding out. I didn't want to spark a debate, but when ever you bring up religion it is a hot topic. My intentions weren't to offend, just to find out if anyone wanted to join in an alliance.

I don't think you offended anyone, certainly not me.

You sound like a very good dude actually, not hopping onto the provocation.

 

Good luck in forming your alliance. :)

Wow, Grasman - I have to say I'm surprised at how passionate you are about being anti-Christian. You went way off base, man. I have nothing but respect for you as a fellow-Tycooner, but damn. OP simply stated he was a Christian, and you proceeded to blast Christians as ignorant, pathetic, followers.  As a Christian myself, I'm amazed at the near-hatred thrown out. I just don't get it. Why does having faith in something we cannot "prove" equate to ignorance? Can we let people believe whatever they want and not ridicule them for it?  Thanks.

Whoaa there bud, hold your horses.

 

I was Christened and Confirmed before my brain was fully developed, as most Christians are.

So, i'm closer to be Christian than anything else, at least in "name".

 

However, when you grow up and start to be able to add a few things together, you start to understand why religion is there in the first place and why people follow it blindly.

 

I have about as much "hatred" for fanatical Christians as they have for homosexuals and others that don't fit their own perfect picture... hence, no hatred, more sort of pity, i feel for them to wast their lives on this, to have this control their lives. I have no problem whatsoever with people believing what ever they want, whether it is Allah, God, Jesus or a flying spaghetti monster... i could not care less....

 

But, when this sector of society is starting to force its way into schools, teaching this imaginary stuff to kids as facts, in the form of Creationism, things get a bit twitchy. Same goes when the same sector tries to ban shit based on their faith......

 

Education needs to be based on facts, not fiction.

 

Personally i agree with a couple of posters here, wishing to keep religious segregation out of Tycoon.

But if someone want to ally themselves with whoever, thats not really my business at all...

 

Sorry if I hurt your feelings man, that wasn't my intention.

Anyone who believes something by the word is a fanatic to me.

 

As an atheist myself, i can't help but to worry more about people judging and looking down to religious people with some kind of real passion lol, no offense bud. While the country i live in is kinda known as traditional christian, the relation to the bible is kinda "soft" somehow, widely regarded as... well the word of god trough mankind with strong emphasis on mankind and by that as a document of its time. Anyways, my intention is not to start a discussion here now and i think we all agree there... but i guess we also all agree in "live and let live".

Heyyyy... the fanatical religious, press forward with the passion of Christ behind them.....

Someone needs to counter that passion....... it's damn hard though to make it look like you have passion for something you don't really have passion for at all.

 

Looks like it fooled someone though :)
