Actually 08031993, only religion needs people because without it religion would not exist. On the other hand people do NOT need religion because religion give people permission to kill people.

Isn`t funny how people`s gods hate exactly who they hate?

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother`s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

The rest of the world still practices religion? "

Only Ireland, Italy and the Middle East (great bastions of unity and tolerance the lot of `em), the rest of us have moved on.

Religions were first "created" to explain poo that was happening that people couldn`t explain/understand.

Now that we`ve got science, religion is going to fade out. It might take a while, but it will.

Some beliefs are bad ass nonetheless. The peaceful, earth-loving ones.

And honestly, if you stuck someone who was saying that he`s got an imaginary friend and if you don`t repent immediately, you`re gonna die in today`s society, he`s be locked up in a psyche ward. Just sayin`.

Have a happy day, I-A-Bers. <3

Ivarvw, i am catholic and all, but I agree... i wonder how frikin peaceful society would be without religion with people killin` and dying over retarded stories told by our ancestors. And seriously, Its not like they all had `Half-Life` orange box in their boxes of entertainment, so they made up stories to tell as folklore until people started taking the poo seriously and end up worshiping these mythical beings told in these stories....enough to kill my neighbor because he wouldn`t kneel before me and my almighty idol

14 "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

I really hate it when people manipulate text. America is not the only country God loves.

How neat would it be if they made organized religion illegal? (not believing in gods and sh*t, just organized religion)

But f*ck that. Wishing for your religious views to be made into law is disgusting, evil, conservative, and anti-American.

Quoting someone else below but having to reiterate it due to nobody paying attention. There is no metnion of "America" in the bible due to nobody knowing it existed. The passage reads:

"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Wake up guys.

you can say anything by changing the text. : if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Well the problem isn`t that you`re called Americans, it`s that your country name is very generic.

United States of America.

Uniteds? What about United Kingdom or United Arab Emirates.

Statesians? Very generic, though that`s effectively what the UAE call themselves (Emarati).

Americans? Compare the name to "Europeans", we`re not leaving anyone out when we say "Europeans", but you`re leaving out Canadians, Mexicans, Chileans, Brazilians, etc.


Personally though, I don`t think it`s a problem.

Americans (USA).
North Americans (USA/Canada/Mexico).
South Americans (Brazil/Peru/Etc).

All good.

What would you call people of the USA other than Americans? United Statesens? Doesn`t sound good. Citizens of Canada are called Canadian, Chile is equate to Chileans etc... Those fit for countries of the Americas. Therefore what kind of identity would you make that sounds to ID people of the USA? No wise asses please! I can see it coming from the trolls.

And guys, they just replace "Their land" in the quote with "America" Which makes sense because of the audience they`re projecting that too.

Its not too blasphemous but they should have just stuck with the origional text.

And also, America is a huge breeding ground for a growing Athiest crowed.

The original quote says "their land" not America. I guess if the billboard is in America for the American people to see and read, then in that case, their land actually is America so it`s not totally off.

Um, yeah, 2nd Chronicles does NOT say that! This is what it ACTUALLY says...

@tamcee1

thats why mate if ever you see ... in a quote you should go out of your way to look the whole thing up. It`s the editorial sign for a misquote, or edited quote that is supposed to be used to contract a lengthy quote into a lesser one that gives the same message but sometimes is used to misquote someone or edit based on opinion (or what the editor feels the readers want to read. See sign above).
