Gandhi's Christ quote stamp by AtheosEmanon Gandhi's Christ quote stamp by AtheosEmanon
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ"
Mohandas Gandhi


I think this is one of my favorite quotes that Gandhi said, so simple yet truthful. While, as an atheist I do not believe in "Christ" or for me personally do not even believe in his existence. I do think as the quote says if more Christians were "Christ like" they would not be such dicks.

I think the quote in general sums up my feelings on christianity as a whole.... yes, I am sure I will get some who agree, and some who disagree... yet if you disagree, then post your own stamp, I can do without the "oh you're wrong blah blah blah"

I am sure I will get the, oh you're an atheist blah blah blah... you have no say on religious blah blah blah.

As an atheist, speaking only for me and some I have known. We don’t care who you worship, be it Christ, Allah, whatever. As long as you’re not a dick about it, or think yourself to be superior because of your religious beliefs then many atheists do not care either way.. oh and not trying to intertwine the law with religion and things of that nature, then by all means have fun with it.

Since I know I may get asked about my views on religion, I will just link you here…

A friend asked me to make this stamp when I showed her the quote, so that she can put it on her deviant art page. So if you want to fave it, that would be cool, if not.. that is also cool.

Johann Hari, a writer said of the Pope:
"And I would just say to all the Catholics who are queuing up to go and hear this man, take a look at the man on your crucifix. Who do you think Jesus Christ would be standing with?"

The bible is the ultimate conundrum, it allows for the most greatest of goods and most questionable of evils.

I prefer the hippie Jesus though compared to the Jesus of Luke 14:25-27 and the cost of being a disciple

Note to self; Give Gandhi a medal once I get to heaven.

If there is an afterlife.... God I hope so...

I live by this..

"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
— Marcus Aurelius
