But in their minds they think they can get away with it, because as long as they ask for forgiveness they can still be "saved". That's what makes Christianity so foul, and why priests molest little boys.
A statement like that only shows your ignorance. The Bible specifically speaks against that.

Speak for yourself.
Yes, I can clearly see by your interaction with others here on the BV that you are a stand-up guy.

Sure, maybe Atheism or Agnosticism is "superior" in your eyes. But if so. Why? Is Christian doctrine such a horrible thing? Is it completely wrong and immoral? Why?

Because it's wrong and immoral to fill people's heads with false beliefs, that's why. It also stagnates human progress/philosophy. And as long as Judeo-Christianity and Islam exists, these religious wars will never end. Granted, humans usually find other things to go to war over, but who knows, maybe we can find peace one of these days. But as long as the two major conflicting religions exist, there can never be peace. These religions must be eradicated from our society, however long it takes.
