What Is The Definition Of A Religious Fanatic In Your Own Words And Are You One by Nobody: 11:32pm On Jan 19, 2012
Let us define the word fanatic :

'A person marked or motivated by an extreme, unreasoning enthusiasm, as for a cause.'

With this meaning in mind, I have 3 questions for you:

1. How will you define a Religious fanatic in your own words ?

2.  Do you classify yourself as a Religious fanatic ?

3. If you are not a fanatic, do you adhere totally to the tenets of your religion without any room for manoeuvre regarding it's truths.

@Frosbel
I think you should first answer the question yourself. Do you consider yourself a religious fanatic?
Re: What Is The Definition Of A Religious Fanatic In Your Own Words And Are You One by Nobody: 1:48pm On Jan 20, 2012
No !!

Though some people might consider those who take the bible literally end to end as fanatics. In which case I happily comply.

And you ?
Re: What Is The Definition Of A Religious Fanatic In Your Own Words And Are You One by PastorKun(m): 2:42pm On Jan 20, 2012
Nope I am most definitely not a religious fanatic even I might concede to being termed a religious activist. smiley

You can't take the bible literally end to end and still remain sane unless of course you're already insane.

A religious fanatic is one that is deeply insecure of his/her faith but has to aggressively defend it in the face of obvious reason just to cover his/her low self-esteem.

I read ur thread above

Mar 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Does this sound phonographic like having se.x with 77 virgin?
U dont know the meaning here is the meaning: The passage above is telling you, God will bless you in family, brother, sister. U will be fruitful e.t.c. When Prophet Job was in problem he lost his son, wives and family, but when God blessed him, everything multiplied.

This is different from ur se.x driven killing people because of 77 virgins.

I am not surprised for you. Quran permits you people to lie.
Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands could die.

Read Qur'an (16:106)

You will know why muslims lie and engage in propaganda games.

But wait oooo. Nobody has ever mentioned any religion name or religion book in this thread. But why is that a muslim is now pointing to the bible.

Indeed the definition of fanatism.

In the mind of a religious fanatic;  It is my way or the high way.

I am not a fan of Religion. I admire certain things about the principles of religion. But I am an humble servant of Reason cool.

With this meaning in mind, I have 3 questions for you:

1. How will you define a Religious fanatic in your own words ?-A Religious fanatic is one who is a fool and brainwashed and finds no sense in humanity to reason well with his fellow human beings and do things to his own will not knowing it may be the wrongest path

2. Do you classify yourself as a Religious fanatic ?Never i have religion especially the ones used to brainwashed us

3. If you are not a fanatic, do you adhere totally to the tenets of your religion without any room for manoeuvre regarding it's truths-I am self religion , i think for my self

Nabilah:

A deeply insecure and troubled individual.


I AM A[b] RELIGIOUS FANATIC[/b]! I feel insecure in a growingly monotheistic and mentally-enslaved country where the identity, culture, beliefs, morals of my people and fellow countrymen are threatened and are stamped upon. I also feel troubled with the self-destruction mode our country is running on and the senseless wars we fight on the ideologies of long-dead foreign men which has brought nothing but misery and death to this country.
