Sure. I agree. Your jesus is indeed defeated by mere weeds. Now what?
God don't do what Bush did. What he said is that if you take off what is bad there will be collateral victimes of what is good.

Are children the collateral damage from religion?

How then does it have weeds?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
Gaetan, you haven't shown anything other than you are a weed among the wheat.

Ain't that enough? Why deliberately add to your "victimes" by refusing to "take off what is bad"?

Just take Bush and Clinton, in their goal to kill Saddam of Irak they killed hundreds of thousand innocent victimes, they should be arrested and put in prison for the rest of their life, then after that they'll be in prison for their after life.

How many pedophile priests and other religious should be locked away forever? You still have nothing negative to say about all the religious who abuse children?

Once we abolish religion, then the religious will no longer think of children who are abused as collateral damage.

You have nothing negative to say about those religious at all, huh?

What has that got to do with the question asked?


No one claimed the innocent don't suffer, even under the best intents. The question was "Why deliberately add to your "victimes" by refusing to "take off what is bad"?

What does that have to do with the fact that not having money is a bigger problem than having money?

You think Saddam was some kind of choir boy? The world is better off without him.

And not having money is a bad thing.

Superman has his Fortress of Solitude.

You have a Dungeon of Ignorance with a summer home of religious delusion.
