I don't see why you would be interested about my remark being "ugly" or "disrespectful" since you don't seem to extend respect to Christians regarding their beliefs in God.
This is likely because you don't view such initial
proselytizing of such beliefs as being "disrespectful" of others as I do, (thus eliciting my subsequent
remarks which you view as "disrespectful" ... oddly enough, in contradiction of the "golden rule").
I merely mean that I would not ever follow someone who makes such demands of believers to follow through with something like what he did with the koolaid, with him and his "followers" knowing what the end result would be.
Jones was self-declared xtian, you're a self-declared xtian. Self-declared xtians nominally "follow" the xtian belief system, (while some may choose to selectively
follow bit and pieces, they all still call it xtianity).
“You can not convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it is based on a deep-seated need to believe.”
-– Carl Sagan
Just to clarify; you've implied that you believe in the religious notion of "rapture", correct? If not, you can stop reading the reply sooner than you usually do. If so, what's the cognizant difference between Jones and his "people's temple" wanting to "go" sooner and your wanting to wait for the same religious notion beyond 'suiciding'? The religious notion of "rapture" is based entirely on evidence-lacking "faith" alone - same as Jones' notions.
