Why I Hate Religion, But Love REALITY (Part 2)

Video response to Jefferson Bethke & his video/third chapter in his book “Jesus is Greater Than Religion” entitled “Fundies, Fakes, & Other So-Called Christians” – You can watch the video down below:
Bethke, Jefferson (2013). "Jesus is greater than Religion: Why He Is So Much Better Than Trying Harder, Doing More, and Being Good Enough." Nashville: Nelson Books.

In this video in the mini-series in response to Christian vlogger Jefferson Bethke (aka bball1989), I, as a skeptical atheist, take him to task on his repetitive use of the no true Scotsman fallacy in order to say that certain people within his faith aren’t true Christians, and that this task is completely hopeless in the end given that there’s a multitude of Christian sects (and of course they’re going to be different in some aspects, yet they still hold essential Christian beliefs). The most important point in discussions on religion is that those on the Christian side, regardless of how they practice their faith, still have the burden of proof when presenting why they believe what they believe.
