As far as hearing atheists "ranting" about hindu or islam... you don't hear that because christianity is by far the most popular and prevalent religion within the U.S. If you had large numbers of people of other religions pushing for legislation based off of their specific religion you would hear atheist and people of other religions speaking up about their problems with legislation. It's not specific towards christianity, it's just the main religion here and the religion that tries to legislate here in the U.S.

When he self converted following a revelation ( bullchhitt) to be a Jesus follower, he laid his own interpretation on things that Jesus never uttered.
There are 2 great salesmen in the History of the World ...... Paul and Ron Popeil, the difference being that Ron Popeil actually created and sold quality made merchandise that really worked, and simplified our lives.
Paul convoluted our lives and kept mankind in fear of reprisal. We are 1,000-1,200 years behind in science and invention because of Paul.

I think everyone knows Paul was not an apostle, in the NT, by his own account, he was taught by Jesus.
I think the two people who played a role in early Christianity are James, the step brother of Jesus, and ThomasJay Shrewsbury

While someone like Gandhi will NOT go to heaven for not believing in Jesus Christ.....yeah, gotta love that logic.
Yeah....we're just supposed to take that and stay quiet while they continue to spread their beliefs grounded in NOTHING but blind faith.
What the hell do I care about Hindu, or the "idiocy of Islam" as you put it (funny that you don't have a problem calling Islam an idiocy).... while living in America?
Those religions don't do anything to me....don't get me wrong they ARE just as wrong as the Christians, but they are such a low minority that they are harmless.
Christianity on the other hand has a lot of power....TOO MUCH power.
And they use that power to try to impose their morality and their nonsense down my and everyone else's throats.
That's why we fight them so hard.

That's why they say they don't BELIEVE in god.....not that they KNOW that no god exists.
The theists on the other hand are the ones that usually say they KNOW that god exists....what is their evidence? They don't have any.
We're arrogant for questioning these people?
BTW....you said religion was crap, right?
AGAIN....might telling me what part of the Christian RELIGION is crap?

BTW....since we are on the topic of hell, let's get some FACTS out in the open.
#1 The Jews (Who came first, and wrote the OT) DO NOT believe in Hell or Heaven, notice that until the NT, Hell is NEVER mentioned in the bible.
#2 Where the hell is "Hell"? Below the earth? I don't think so!
Above the earth? NOPE
Oh, in another dimension?
Outside of space and time?
Funny that the bible says NOTHING about WHERE Hell is.....it says that god casts the devil and his followers to earth, but it doesn't mention where Hell actually is.
And guess what folks.....geology proves that there is NO HELL below the earth....sorry!
#3 The details of hell are usually from legends and pagan beliefs. For example Dante's Inferno is NOT based on the bible....it's 100% fiction.
The few details we do have from the bible are VERY vague.
