I am trying to understand the troglodyte behavior/reasoning behind the idea that someone would wish that someone would die in an accident and go to hell for dare saying they don't believe in a god. Why? If you were a true believer, you wouldn't need to get rid of the temptation of someone saying something like that that might make you think. You should be able to withstand the idea that there is no god. If you want someone dead because they lack faith, then YOU are the problem. If your a true believer, you would have the discipline to be able to stand up straight against the wind of disagreement.

A real priest, who is supposedly celibate, should be able to walk through an orgy of people having sex without even the hint of an erection. But, that is never the case. Why? Because they wouldn't be able to. And so what do these "true believers" do when confronted with something that is "tempting", or contrary to their systems of belief? They want to get rid of it, squash it to bits, because THEY lack the discipline to withstand the temptation. Disgusting. There is no difference whatsoever in what that person thinks than what the Taliban do. Only difference is the hats they wear.
