I'm a Naturalistic Pantheist.

threre are like 3-4 billion cathilic/christian in the world

Is this an argumentum ad populum? Also, it's closer to 2.2 billion. About 1.2 billion of those are Catholics.

Why do you Christians hate Satan so much? He's a chill dude. I met him at a restaurant once. He was a a very outgoing guy, only problem was all the looks he got. We had fun.

Also, eternity* believe* Muslims* noticed* and you accidently some punctuation.

(Serious note, Atheist.)

Buddhist, but I make a point to please my own, private gods.
Not to poke holes in scripture, but if your Christian God is almighty, how could he not save his own son?
And he was killed on a cross, irony abounds.

Uh...I don't think you quite understand Christianity...

1) Jesus willingly died on the cross, with foreknowledge that it would happen, in order to take mankind's sin upon himself. There wasn't a "couldn't" part to it, just a "didn't."

2) I'm not sure what you're trying to say with the irony here...the cross (which more commonly was actually a T shape) was a method of execution back with the Romans. It gained its symbolism/metaphors thereafter.

Jesus really didn't want to die. He knew the Father wanted him to so he went along with it. He prayed to not have the burden of being the savior (Mark 14:35, 36). He knew the Father could change his mind or find a way that didn't involve him (like He did when Abraham was about to kill his son), but He didn't. It wasn't really 'willfully' because he feared God's wrath. No different than if someone tells you to do something while they hold a gun to your head.

And he was killed on a cross, irony abounds.

The cross is supposed to symbolize that he died so we could have hope of living forever and such. I agree that it's strange that the church chose an ancient torture device as their primary symbol instead of perhaps a crown of thorns or a lamb (although that might go against the 'graven image' commandment).

You missed Catholitic.

I am an Enchiladian, ranked Squatter of the Fullth Cheese. Have been since the 13th of January of 2010. The Poop noticed that I haven't done anything with my religious standing since then, so that is probably why my holey rank is still Squatter.

well they can do whatever they want so all the people who DO hate devil worshipers should just let them alone and do their thing.Thats the thing is most Christans(example) see that you don't follow their religion and immediatly call you devil worshipers.
