Why is nobody talking about Kony being a Christian?

Hey everyone. 

With Kony 2012 making the rounds all over Facebook, Twitter, and (late as usual) traditional media, I've noticed that nobody talks about Joseph Kony being the leader of a radical and violent Christian group. 

Honestly, the most I've seen is some people saying that his movement is based on "his own interpretation of the Ten Commandments", which seems like the classic "oh, they're just misusing religion" argument so often put forward by apologists.

How Would You Answer This?

Ok, that sounds good. Thanks for the discussion so far. But real quick, may I ask you this question: What is the inverse of the statement "I don't believe in God?" Seems there should be an inversely logical conclusion. "I don't believe in God; therefore, inversely, I do believe there is no god." I don't believe x; therefore, I believe in the opposite of x. It sounds like a mathematical equation because it is.

Google Plus requirement for real names is a red herring.

Google Plus (Google+) stirred up a controversy by deleting, wholesale, accounts created under pseudonyms instead of under real names. Google+ acknowledged their mistakes and is now formulating an official policy for naming conventions on their new social network.



There are legitimate reasons that users might need to use pseudonyms. The most obvious and crucial one is anonymity for political dissidents and social activists. Without that anonymity, activism can be too dangerous to…

Facebook & the delusions of a Christian

 

Edited to add punctuation and clarity:

 

"I just wanted to say that I heard people say "I don't drink, smoke or use bad language & God loves them" It's not you. It's Jesus. Christ is the reason for you getting into heaven. You can be good enough or do good enough. It's the…

Chicken-Trolling on Facebook..

OP: The funny thing is ... I've ALWAYS said this, since it would match up with the Creation account in the Torah. Now, don't I get a Nobel Prize or award money or something for figuring it out first?

'The chicken came first, not the egg', scientists provewww.metro.co.ukIt’s an age-old puzzle that’s stumped generations of scientists.

OP: Now it's your job to decide if I'm trolling or if I'm serious.



OP: Or both.

DA: Que AT.. GO

OP: I'm waiting for Adam to respond ...… Continue

A week or so ago, I was asked a question:

"What series of events made you reexamine your faith, and how did you decide that your religion was wanting?"

 

Because the asker is a good friend of mine, I honestly didn't mind answering, but I asked for a few days to write it all down. I didn't want to just tell the bones of the story and miss any details that I thought were important to me, as part of my own journey into applying rationalism to religion.

 

Then, not an hour after my first friend asked me, a…

"Just Curious"

Some of you may remember that I received a Facebook message from a Christian friend of mine awhile back, wherein she took it upon herself to tell me how much God loves me and all that. I responded to her in kind, explaining as nicely as I could why I no longer believe. I never got a response from her after that.



Tonight, I received a message from a cousin. She was raised Catholic and although I don't think she really practices anymore, she…

Letter to a Christian Friend

Today I received a message on Facebook from a friend that I knew in YWAM (she's French, so her English isn't perfect):



Girl !!! I've been thinking of you lately? How are you?? I remembered clearly the day in india when we preached and you found the courage to share what happened to you and how God was restoring you. I admired so much what you did that day !!! I've seen on your status that you were not so crazy about all of this anymore. And i wanted to share with you that… Continue
