    Since when ? Why do all the atheist slaughter Christians ? did you forget Stalin ? Mao Tse, Pol Pot?

    Lives Lost Under Non-Religious Dictators

    Joseph Stalin - 42,672,000

    Mao Zedong - 37,828,000

    Adolf Hitler - 20,946,000

    Chiang Kai-shek - 10,214,000

    Vladimir Lenin - 4,017,000

    Hideki Tojo - 3,990,000

    Pol Pot - 2,397,000

    Atheism has almost 170 million men, women and children who have have been shot, beaten, tortured, knifed, burned, starved, frozen, crushed or worked to death; buried alive, drowned, hung, bombed or killed in any other of a myriad of ways atheistic governments have inflicted death on unarmed, helpless citizens and foreigners. The dead could conceivably be nearly 360 million people. It is though our species has been devastated by a modern Black Plague. And indeed it has, but a plague of Power, not germs.”

    As for those witch Burnings? There have been times in the Christian church where those who have claimed to follow Christ have done horrible things. They have done these things not because Christ teaches them, but because they have not listened to the word of God. As is frequently established in history when anyone comes into complete political and military control abuse almost always follows. The Inquisition was a Roman Catholic invention intended to root out all sorts of "heresies." The Inquisition used torturous means to force confessions out of people. Thousands were killed mercilessly and unjustly. The Protestant Reformation distances itself from the Catholic Inquisition, yet has its own sordid history. The witch trials we had here in America among some Puritans is an example. They allowed their paranoia and ignorance to overtake reason and scripture. As a result, many people were killed because they were accused of being witches -- and they weren't.

    Again, this does not mean that Christianity is false anymore than the police force is false because one or two cops did bad things in the name of the law. Instead of looking at the two cops, the whole of the police force, its goals, other cops, and its history of sacrifice and protection must be examined as well. The same holds true for Christianity. It has a great history of helping countless people, establishing orphanages, building shelters, helping famine-ravaged countries, and seeks to aid the downtrodden.

    If anyone wishes to condemn Christianity because of the failures of its members, then will they also look at its successes and approve of Christianity? It would only be fair to look at the whole of Christian history and more importantly at what the Bible actually teaches, in particular the New Testament, from which Christianity is derived.

    Believe in Christianity because Jesus Christ claimed to be God in flesh, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and has given us the New Testament. Believe in Jesus because He performed miracles in front of eyewitnesses, and He said that He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Believe Christianity because of who Jesus is, not because of what some so-called Christians did in error.

    Competition. By definition a witch is a follower of a pagan religion. Christians sought to dominate, to achieve this they murder those who believe in other gods.

    As for justification, they used the verse, Thou shall not suffer a witch to live.

    In all honesty, not all Christians today do this, though there are those who still do in places such as Africa.

    They don't stupid. You're a worthless idiot if you believe in atheism. I don't even know what you're saying, troll. God does exist, how can I get that through your head, stupid.

    The witch burnings were likely done by a few people who thought the people wanted to uphold the very timely puritanical beliefs when in actuality the people were just people making assumptions on eachother likewise. That said, god isn't real. He's never texted me while I was ignoring texts because I was beating off to Spring Breakers instead.

    Christians do not burn witches.

    Witches usually are people that practice pagan religions. Those religions usually include human sacrifices, especially children (many times kidnapped from their parents). So basically killing a witch is killing a serial killer. Why by burning? There is a myth (popular in the middle ages) that a witch cannot be killed in any other way.

    Because these priest,they are not of God but of the devil, priest craft is what false priest practice so they burn witches. Priest craft is very real and is all over our world today for there can only be on God one church and one religion that belongs to god. Priest craft refers to priest that have no authority to preach the gospel or to even build up churches unto God for they only build them up to get gain from the things of this world and I lie not. There are thousands of Churches that are of man and there are some churches that belong to the devil. and only one belongs to God, seek for it, for it has all truths in it, that teaches a man to follow the lord Jesus Christ in all things they say and do in there lives. salvation come to none except the obedient and they who love the lord with all there heart might mind and strength.

    Even though they don't publicly execute non-believers, the inquisition still goes on today. In europe many "occult" websites are blocked. Incuding harmless wiccan ones.
