← Emotional arguments against religion

MMAtheist's Avatar Jump to comment 24 by MMAtheist

Well, I prefer the rational arguments as well, but one emotional argument comes in handy when Christians try to "save me".

I tell them that even if I believed in their God, there's no way I could respect/worship/love Him, because he's an immoral monster in my eyes. How could I enjoy Heaven whilst knowing that most of my family and friends, indeed most of humanity, was receiving their eternal punishment at the same time?

I find that's a fun way of implying that these Christians are spineless cowards who accept anything from their "Daddy". "You can have your God, I'd prefer Hell with my loved ones anyway..."
