The Best of the "Why I Hate Religion, but Love Jesus" Responses

I finally broke down and watched the "Why I Hate Religion, but Love Jesus" video this weekend, after seeing this post by Melody and thinking that if I was going to watch the responses to the video, I should probably watch the video itself too. Since something in me dislikes linking directly to the video, I'll link to this article by Jimmy Akin, which includes the video, along with an explanation about what's so wrong with it.

The original video was exactly what I expected it to be.

The responses I've been watching however, have been extra-ordinary and have exceeded every expectation I had.  And if you have any favorites that aren't here, please add them below!  It's bedtime here or I'd still be searching through all the videos that that first misguided piece inspired.


Edited 1/19/12 to add: Another great video response has been posted!


  1. The responses were truly marvelous. I've known so many "I'm not religious" types and it is so nice to read articles like Jimmy Akins and the several excellent video responses. The skills of the apologist are very much appreciated!

    By the proper definition of religious I have always been religious. :)

  2. I couldn't possibly add anything to this, so I simply linked to your blog for my own post. Wow. Thank you!

  3. Love it. "Cue the Gregorian Chant." LOL!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
