Christians and cherry picking

Friday, 30 May 2014

Davina Owen, of Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, writes: May I reply to Roger Tyler’s mistakes concerning atheism? An atheist is simply a person who does not believe in a god. There are no ‘different kinds’ of atheism, a person is either a believer in a god or an atheist. On the other hand, there are many kinds of Christian, with no two appearing to share the same beliefs. They cherry pick the bits that fit their lives, and toss out the nasty bits, such as slavery, that don’t fit in. As for Christians being responsible for our laws and morals? I was going to object, but on second thoughts they probably are.
