Stumbled upon this website while googling around. I especially like how they talk about ethics and absolutes with regard to an atheist and being lawfully minded (as if ALL Christians are....anyone remember Jim Jones?).

Apologetics on Atheism

Wow...look at this quote from the site:

Quote:
There are potential dangers in this kind of ethical system. If a totalitarian political system is instituted and a mandate is issued to kill all dissenters, or Christians, or mentally ill, what is to prevent the atheist from joining forces with the majority system and support the killings? It serves his self-interests, so why not?[/b]
Hmmm....I'm thinking about the Christian/Catholic role in the Holocaust....come to think of it, if we switch the terms you actually get what happened in the 1940s! (ok, so they werent exactly in cahoots but they played their parts. it wasn't like it was all atheists coming together...)


Or...let's try this one:

If a theocratic political system is instituted and a mandate is issued to kill all dissenters, or atheists, or mentally ill, what is to prevent the Christians from joining forces with the majority system and support the killings?

Come to think of it....being someone who lived through Noriegas dictatorship, I'd say the nonbelievers were the ones fighting hardest to get him out.
