So I have been “challenged” to explain how Christianity or the bible contradict the Universal Declaration. This really doesn’t seem to be much of a challenge but I don’t mind taking the time to hopefully inform people of a few things. The way that Christianity denies human rights and comparing the bible to the Universal Declaration (UD) are really two different things. We can quote bible verses back and forth but really all that proves is we know too much about an archaic and shoddy book. Usually the way Christians actually treat people is more telling of the true state of their religion.
Even before we leave the preamble there seems to be issues as the UD talks about equal rights for men and women. Christianity is traditionally a phalocentric religion. It has been used to encourage poor treatment and oppression of women throughout history.
Moving on to the actual UD itself: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
If you don’t see how religion contradicts this statement chances are I won’t be the one to enlighten you. Christianity condones and encourages slavery. Christianity has been used throughout history countless times as justification to enslave, imprison, and murder. Christianity says it teacher “love thy neighbor” unless of course your neighbor has a different God, refuses to pay taxes to the church (Christians traditionally killed other Christians too for religious reasons mind you), does something you feel is immoral, or resists your “generous” offer of salvation through your “one true” religion.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
Except of course if you’re born homosexual, female, or heathen, in which case religion will tell you it’s fine to show the people these errors in their way. It’s right for Christians to show others their faults and point out how they fall short of the grace and glory of God. It’s great to tell them they will go to hell and suffer and burn eternally for being born the way they are. Don’t forget third world countries are the best place to get new converts, since they lack basic education it’s so much easier to get them to buy into the program.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Same as above.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
Is this one just a bit obvious? Yes, yes, I know, Christians don’t condone slavery now! That’s because Christians don’t follow the same Christianity they did years ago. Christianity itself condones and even encourages slavery and slave trade.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
What if they’re a witch though? They’ll never just tell us. Better torture them until near death, that has to be the best way to get to the “truth”.
Plus I keep seeing all these t necklaces. I hear it is so they remember this guy that used to hang out all the time. Christians celebrate torture and keep a daily reminder of it close at hand.
Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
I feel like I’d be repeating myself….but maybe the point is getting through?
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Unless of course they have the wrong religion, in which case it’s Christian duty to tell them. Freedom of thought? Not well sky daddy is listening. I hear if you scream in your head well you try and think though he gets confused, maybe then he can’t convict you of thought crime.
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Alright this has passed the point of redundancy. No one in their right mind can honestly read through the list of the UD and not how Christianity has worked against it, either in modern day or historical terms. It shows the extent of how Christianity seeks to deny and prevent people from having access to even the most basic human rights. Trust me, I could continue on, but there is no reason to point out over and over again how Christians persecute others and seek to deny people basic human rights.
Nearly every group of humanity that has come in contact with a large number of Christians has been killed, persecuted, or tortured because of Christianity. Pagan and heathens, Jews, Muslims, Native Americans, Africans (Rwanda wasn’t very long ago), even Christians killing other Christians. Please don’t be so ridiculous and ludicrous to try and close your eyes to all of this and act as if Christians belong on the moral high ground. Christians today may be different than many of the Christians in the past but Christianity as a whole is a disgusting, vile, evil, sadistic, cruel, persecuting religion and if it isn’t apparent it means you haven’t done your research.
