In its typical modern form, Christianity is anti-Hank-ass-kissing, as it denies the divinity of Hank, rejects Karl's letter (and all other texts save its own) as Hank's scripture, and denies his signs and miracles to men. It lacks any coherent morality (read the Bible and see), and an excuse to claim to be religious while engaging in immoral conservative activity. Thus it is a favorite of conservatives who do not want to be branded with atheism.
Christianity is also only a short step away from atheism, and Christian beliefs often create a slippery slope to atheism (consider all of the Christian deconverts). This is a common tactic of atheist evangelists: first convince a Hank-ass-kisser that Hank has left the world alone, and then deny the necessity of Hank. They are morally equivalent, given Hank's presumed inaction.

Awesome Hank's ass integration Doctor :)

I'm not sure that you can claim that christianity has any coherent morality, either.
And how do you distinguish between moral and immoral liberal activity?
Most of the liberals I know are either christian, or atheist. In fact, I don't think I've ever met anyone who claimed to be a deist. That's a bit old fashioned, these days.

Conservapedia finally admits that most of our Founding Fathers were anti-Christian.

"In its typical modern form, deism is anti-Christian, as it denies the divinity of Jesus Christ, rejects the Bible (and all other texts) as God's scripture, and denies his signs and miracles to men."
And that makes it "anti-Christian" how exactly? Generally, "anti" implies some sort of active opposition to something, not just non-acceptance.
"t lacks any coherent morality,"
So does Christianity, but I doubt you hold that against it.
"and an excuse to claim to be religious while engaging in immoral liberal activity."
Yeah, sure. Deists (and atheists, of course) claim their position so that they can engage in "immoral liberal activity". Whatever the hell that is.
"Thus it is a favorite of liberals who do not want to be branded with atheism."
It's a favorite of those in the process of deconverting, liberal or not.
"Deism is also only a short step away from atheism,"
"and deistic beliefs often create a slippery slope to atheism."
I'm afraid I don't see how saying, "There's a god/creator, but it's not a personal one" is any sort of slippery slope.
"This is a common tactic of atheist evangelists:"
"first convince a Christian that God has left the world alone,"
You don't need me for that. Just look around. If your god exists he's sure as hell not minding the store.
"and then deny the necessity of God."
And I'll continue to do so until you can show some reason why your god must necessarily exist for something, anything, to exist/happen.
"They are morally equivalent, given God's presumed inaction."
Morality has nothing to do with it, moron.

Apart from that I'd agree, only you make it sound like a bad thing. Look at religion objectively and you'll turn into an atheist.
8/4/2009 4:41:57 PM
You're just whining now.
8/4/2009 4:45:30 PM
Well most diests I know believe in a god, but not the Biblical god, so this really isn't that far off the mark.
8/4/2009 5:18:41 PM
@Frogflayer, and others:
You could describe these guys as such, sometimes.
8/4/2009 5:18:51 PM
Nope, that makes it unchristian, as it doesn´t include important elements of faith, but not anti-christian ;)
Sounds like your persecution complex is at work again...
who isn´t like us is automatically against us ;)

Atheist evangelists? What do they do, stand on street corners and hand out blank tracts?
8/4/2009 5:30:16 PM
That's the much more objective and fair encyclopedia to counter biased-ass wiki for you! Thank you, conservapedia!

Another "fact based, unbiased" article from Hillbillypedia.

I got banned from there after playing a game of Conservatroll XD
8/4/2009 5:58:37 PM
Oh Conservapdeia. You always bring the lulz.

Please send more information on immoral liberal activity.

Pointless Prayer To A Pointless Dream
O my dear Not-a-thing, thank you for giving me my bone-headed obduracy because I know that you are really nothing.
But, O Mighty Invisible Lord, I also know that belief in any old rubbish is of paramount importance to a knuckle-dragger.
We thank thee O Ultimate Daddy Fantasy for giving us the wherewithal to have faith in our weird beliefs and for giving us the means with which to propagate unshamefacedly the stupidity and childishness of your mystic nonsense.
We uphold the immoral principles and unethical guidelines contained in the goatherders almanac, and we fiercely proclaim our hatred of homosexuals and atheists.
O my dear Nothingness, thou givest some of our brethren the ability to hear voices inside their own heads and so do dupe them in most holy fashion. The rest of us, my Lordly Invention, you cause to lie and lie most unconvincingly to all and sundry, but, O Lord, you give us the miraculous ability to convince ourselves so that we may believe our own lies.
I know, O Super Fairy, that it matters not what I say because non-existent entities can't hear me anyway, but the poinlessness of my prayer to you, O Mighty Mind Worm, helps give meaning to the rest of my pointless existence.

Please can we have the word "liberal" back?
Rest of English-speaking world.

As an atheist, I don't reject the bible. I find it to be a handy illustrative tool when I wish to show both the repellently fascist and the humourously ridiculous nature of religion.
8/4/2009 6:44:04 PM
when the hell are you gonna just admit you hate everyone who isn't you and let us all get on with our day?
8/4/2009 6:52:43 PM
And we all know what those evil anti-American Deists, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson did to the United States...
8/4/2009 6:56:39 PM
deism is anti-Christian, as it denies the divinity of Jesus Christ, rejects the Bible (and all other texts) as God's scripture, and denies his signs and miracles to men.
8/4/2009 7:07:53 PM
8/4/2009 7:13:26 PM
Deism in its modern form?
Deism has always been the same.
Liberalism hasn't always been the same.
Classical liberalism is more like libertarianism now. Just because deism worships some god, but not your god, you want to demonize it by claiming a nonexistent slippery slope.
...and I just noticed this is a Conservapedia entry...

"This is a common tactic of atheist evangelists"
Really? While I've read personal accounts of a gradual transition from theism to atheism (you surely recognize it's a big step and some people take longer to figure out what's what for themselves?), I've never read anything from anyone or of anyone trying to convince others in that way.
