    That's right. It's religious fanatics terrorozing each other during wartime. God isn't a warmonger nor a terrorist. Radicals falsely claiming to serve God are.

    Except that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. One mans elected christian President is another mans religious radical.

    Dear CNN:

    Congratulations.

    Your boards are the biggest joke in blogdom.

    Your “report abuse” button is apparently disabled, because nothing is ever done about the vitriolic and disgusting garbage that is posted here.

    These boards are now know as a safe haven for schoolchildren trolls who like potty humor.

    Please post a thread about feces and fetish s*e*x, because that is all that is ever posted anymore anyway.

    Perhaps this way, they will post on that thread, and leave the serious posters here alone.

    The contempt that CNN shows its readers and posters by not moderating this blog is reprehensible.

    DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

    check this out. when Jesus comes back he is only going to destroy sin and if any one is holding on to sin they will be destroyed with sin so thats why we need Christ to take sin away and for the everlasting fire have a look at scriptures when sodom and Gomora it talks about the everlasting burning on them but you dont see it on the news today with the reporter saying look at Sodom still burning. it is not. so is hell, it is not going to be like that, we wont burn in hell for ever. you see we just need to use our comman sense and ask why would God and Jesus put us in a place like that to burn forever and to live a short time on earth to go to hell it does not make sense,did not Jesus come to seek the lost and to save them does he love us. yes he loves us so much that he died for us and would not put us there forever just like any mother or father would not watch there own kids burning in a house they would do what ever it took even die to get them out before it is to late. the word burning for ever and not being consume till the job is done is like a match being light it will not be quenched till the match is finished burning, just like Sodom. the devel wants us to beleive that god is a harsh god so that we can keep poeple away from God by telling them that there is a hell forever. if you want to learn more of the truth of the bible go to amazingdiscoveries.org there are a section call total onslought check it out. it is better to check somthing out before saying ya or na first its funny poeple will watch anything on tv or listen to the radio that leads to nowhere but when it comes to finding out the truth they get scared or mad or ignorent and walk away with out checking it out, i can understand why they would get scared even Adam and Eve got scared of God when God was walking in the garden asking where are you Adam, SILLY question for God to ask cause God knows ALL, God was asking why did you sin and become naked cause God knew he sinned and was naked being no more clothed in Gods glory,he ask where are you Adam so Adam could reckonize that he sinned and is naked the same goes for the rest of the WORLD when God is asking us to check something out and we get scared to check it out, it is cause we to are naked with sin let Jesus take your sins away he will it is his promise (AMAZINGDISCOVERIES.ORG) check it out

    Wow the religious nuts are out today. Here are two questions for you to ponder:

    1. If your god is so loving and all-caring, then why would he punish those who "disobey" him for ALL ETERNITY. Doesn't sound like a very loving "father" to me. And don't start with the circular free-will logic, which basically says that god gave us free will but then if we don't decide to believe what he wants us to believe we get punished. Come again?

    2. If Adam and Eve were the first two people on the planet who did their children marry? Either we are ALL the byproducts of incest, there were other people (or aliens!) here, or it's all a big fat fairy tale in the first place.

    Oh, and about earthquakes? They've been happening here for millions of years. So if they really do signal that your god is coming he's verrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyy slow...

      Regarding your commet on earthquakes as a sign its true they have been happening for millions of years but never in the amount that we are having them now earthquakes are also not the only sign that the end is near in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 is says "1 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away." Tell me do you see these things happening more than ever in these times that we are living in . My god Jehova is a god of his word and a god of justice as said in Tiitus 1:2 " upon the basis of a hope of the everlasting life which God, who cannot lie, promised before times long lasting". Why would someone want to do good things for someone that doesnt obey them doesnt care about them doesnt respect them . God is a god of justice he is fair. Its very simple if you do what god wants you to do and obey and follow his commandemnts things will go good for you. But if you do the opposite how do you think god will feel. He created us and we cant even give him enough appreciation to obey him . If you draw close to Jehova he will draw close to you James 4:8 says that . I hope i have cleared your doubts and you have a nice day

      1. your concept of God is wrong. God is a tolerant super being, but not an idiot. Also its no skin off his nose if He destorys you, i mean your only one human of finite capacity. So you are extremely blessed that God should pay any attention to you. Love diciplines, it doesn't allow chaos to rule. 2. The concept of marrying your brother or sister as a nono only came along a thousand years or more later, even today its not unusual for first cousins to marry, but not brother and sister. Lets say mum and dad got shipwrecked with their 12 children on a deserted island, guess who their kids will match up with. 3. I don't accept that the earth is millions of years old, try 6000 years FULL STOP. Either God is super powerful or not a god at all.

    Well since there have been earthquakes since the beginning of time here and some people are using this as a posting for their totally inaccurate religious comments. To Yuniel, people have been like that since before Jesus' time, lovers of themselves, greedy, selfish etc., so I guess then we have been in the last days for over 2000 years? God changed big time from the Old to the New Testament. A complete 180 degree turn, from punishing his people to becoming all loving. To the Jews God was a punisher, who was quick to anger, and to the Christians God became all loving, ok except if you were black, gay, a woman, (modern interpretations). So let's stick to the topic here, there have been earthquakes since the dawn of time and there will be more until the end of the world. Jesus was one of the most liberal minds of his day as were the US founding fathers, but then again heaven forbid that some Christians actually believe in and follow Christ!

    I don't think there is a god or gods or spirits at all. According to law you have the same rights I do so rant on, it is your right. But nothing is going to make me take any of those rants seriously.
