Bigotry, slurs, and disinformation are not tolerated on this sub or on Reddit overall. If you see users engaging in these kinds of abuse, please report them. The mods can't read every comment in every thread, so it truly helps when users report abuse. That kind of stuff has no place here- it doesn't matter if they try to use religion to justify it, they will be banned. We are here to chill out and enjoy some memes together. Remember…Christ is watching. ![gif](giphy|3KEJl20q5ggBW)

Was reluctant to join as a post Christian. Saw this pinned post and am all in baby!!


freakingunbelievable

I used to follow this sub as an atheist. Now I follow as a baby Christian. Keep on loving your neighbor, folks.


Piotrek9t

I saw several christian memes over the last 10 years and every single one was awful and felt like it was made by a boomer who tried to convince that christianity is hipp but this sub has incredibly good memes and even as a non believer, I enjoy them a lot. Nice sub and keep up the good work


domen7224

I'm just here for the memes and maybe talk and this is a good place for most people to just talk peacefully most of the time


Abject_Employer_9390

Love it. I’m an atheist but if someone loves others through religion I’m all the way for it. Keep on setting a a good example


James_Demon

As a non Christian, love the sub. Keep up the good work mods.

I love it. This is a masterpiece.


TheLillyKitty

Indeed! I’m not religious, but I enjoy this sub! I used to go to Sunday school, and read a little bit of the Bible, so I somewhat understand most of the memes! Personally, I like the one about Judus’s biggest crime was not knowing what personal space is.


marsh-boi

An atheist here, love you guys and the dankness of JEBUS (unless I'm being insensitive)


onlywearplaid

Same here fam. Atheist but grew up in the church and this sub slaps.

there are some cool ass christians in this sub. love this community <3 ~ an ex christian

Guess you can leave church, but a little bit of Christ is burned into ourselves

hell yea! keep up the good memes, and trans rights y'all <3

As an atheist who was raised catholic and completed confirmation (didn't want to disappoint grandma) this is some of the best humor i see on this site

More Buddhist/spiritual person here but I have to say this is one of my top 3 favorite subs


rebel_child12

I love this sub. I really don’t want idiots coming in and ruining it for all of us


DetroitChemist

I'm an atheist who occasionally goes to church. I found a good one where the pastor focuses on being a good person and whenever he says god or Jesus I just mentally replace it with whatever fits for me. I love this sub.


Hambvrger

Christians: “There are atheists in here?!?” Atheists: “There are a Christians in here?!?”


ltRobinCrusoe

Other religions : "Hope they don't mind us.."


Hambvrger

THERE ARE OTHER RELIGIONS?

Agnostics for example... aren't Jedi a thing?

Veggie Tales works too for this meme. Everyone . EVERYONE gets a water Buffalo


TheLillyKitty

I LOVE veggie tales! I grew up with it! I’m not a fan of the newer ones though


wcvv

That’s my favorite anime


GlossyBuckthorn

Pretty depressing seeing how many people talk about their Christian parents turning them off from religion. Well if the bibble teaches us one thing, it's that humanity is corrupt.


King_Cookie69

I'm an Atheist and don't really like what religion has done in history and even some parts of the world today (middle East, for example) But God dam, I fucking love this sub. U guys are chill :D


jwinskowski

This is a place for wholesomeness, calling out our own inherent (religious/irreligious/cultural) biases, and seeing the Son of Man in some choice memes. May it always be so 🙏🏻

Did something happen?


Renegade_Meister

Some sub was banned and 50 subs were quarantined by reddit due to violations of global Rule 1, and a vague statement (without a rule?) was made by reddit denouncing covid disinformation because a bunch of subs went private for a while until reddit took action.


Ragnnohab

Probably jumping on the bandwagon of all the other subs making these generic statements.


Emperor_Quintana

I agree on establishing this hallowed subreddit as sacred ground for peace and unity between us Christians (regardless of denomination) and everyone else. It ensures that we are not only espousing original Christian values, but it provides us the opportunity to demonstrate said values of ours by putting them into practice without fear or judgement.


workmanse32

I think Mormons face bigotry on this sub. As do JW’s. Why?


Broclen

If you see it, report it.

God I love this sub Reddit. my fellow atheists please continue to be nice here


probablynotokyea

I don’t think I can call myself Atheist or Christian, but this place helps my spirituality simply because of the love. Thanks y’all.


rcthetree

incredibly dank. not a christian mysef but have learned an unreasonable amount about christianity from laughing at memes and then hitting up wikipedia to read about it


ltRobinCrusoe

Well it's a bit like playing Assassins Creed and google what is the real history surrounding the characters... But I like that


Stretch_Riprock

Grew up in a Christian household and am an atheist now. If most christians acted like the ones in this sub do, there is probably a timeline where I would still be practicing. Cheers.

Glad you feel that way :)


Kaiisim

Very dank. Ditto to what people have said, one of the best subs. Funny memes and a very good comment culture. Ive had some good discussions, and actually learned a little. Its a nice reminder that the raging hateful assholes pretending to be christian are just loud, not plentiful. People use the bible to justify so much hate and bigotry despite the message Jesus gave us being that we all suck. Side note I bet Jesus was actually p funny. He roasts people a number of times.


OnePunchedAngel

firfetir

I'm on it friends. I may not believe in god but I believe in *justice.*


BigPapaPage716

I grew up in a Christian household aka hypocrites and judgements but being in this sub shows me the new generation of Christians are doing a good job being open and accepting…you know like how Jesus wanted us to be. Love y’all!


grancombat

I got a really weird mental image of Jesus saying “trans rights” because of this but I mean he probably would, considering trans people are, by definition, people, and therefore wonderfully and beautifully made in the image of God. There’s something you wouldn’t hear in 90+% of “Christian” subs


bumblyburg

>Jesus saying “trans rights” in the [*Halo* announcer guy's voice](https://youtu.be/R-plZUgmA64?t=87), of course


BigPapaPage716

I agree! Jesus rolled out with all of the misfits/outcasts of his time. I think he has love for everyone. We are all Gods children.


[deleted]

[удалено]


BigPapaPage716

This might be my favorite Reddit comment of all time. I really despise the whole right wing Jesus thing. He died for *everyones* sins. But now a days, at least where I am from, Jesus hates gay people, trans people, poor people (like how???), and anyone else who isn’t white, wealthy and “Christian”


StarchChildren

This right here. As a Christian in my 20s, I’ve had a lot of people try to “convince me” that my own faith is about spreading hate and exclusivity and fear. But most of my journey has been studying and rediscovering what it means to be a Christ follower, and accepting people as who they are: wonderfully made and loved. Regardless of a person’s faith or background or beliefs about the world, we are called to take care of each other just as we are called to care for the earth. The conversations on this sub are some of the most enjoyable I’ve seen on any religious subreddit, because it allows for healthy dialogue and respect by everyone. We’re all just here for a laugh, no one is trying to convert anyone, an we can all put down the weapons that current society has required, and sit down at a table with each other. :) I am seeing way more young Christians doing that, and it gives me hope that we can start to turn away from the extremist fundamentalism that has become more prominent in the last several years, and get back to serving and loving people.


Oktobr

I started to question my faith in my 20s. 40s now. The first real college I went to had this professor that was belligerently atheist. And I hated his class and demeanor even though I ended up an atheist. The university I ended up graduating from was Southern Baptist in the US. I absolutely loved it there. Yes, I was pretty much on my way for a loss of belief in God and Christianity, but I tried my damnedest to rekindle my faith through Christian philosophers. It didn’t work in the end, but man do I have mad respect for true Christians that walk Jesus’ path. My mom was one of those types of people. Didn’t agree with her in the end, but damn I respected her for her love and kindness that she drew from her studies of the Bible.


StarchChildren

Yes! I went to a Christian university for my undergrad, but I did a summer course from the large public university near me. The prof I did the summer course with was unnervingly spiteful toward anyone who identified as religious in his class (I got along with him fine but also never mentioned that I was a Christian). He started yelling at a girl in class for not having views that she could back up by numbers and written evidence on things, and a lot of people hated it. One of the professors at my university was so chill about religion, most of us didn't even know if he was religious, which is hilarious becasue he taught a Genesis Book Study course. He brought faith up in such a general manner and used very inclusive language that made the students who were of other or no religions feel welcome and safe. Other professors were quite blatant when it came to "proving" to their students that Christianity was right, and that all other religions or thoughts were wrong (in the same way that the summer course prof tried to "prove" that atheism was the only right way of thinking), but my Genesis prof was kind and compassionate and had a huge heart for his students. A lot of kids came out of that university and lost their faith too, but that Genesis class ended with a net gain of two Christians from just that one semester, because the prof didn't force anything on us and instead just genuinely wanted to discuss and explore things in the Bible from a historical and literary context that everyone could get behind. Those are the kinds of people we need more of, and unfortunately for some, those people also tend to be the quietest about how much of an impact they are making in the world. It is so easy to see the bad in people, but you get way more out of life by putting in the effort to see the good in them and supporting others through whatever journey they're on.


Oktobr

I love that people like you and me are the embodiment of this meme, lol!


StarchChildren

Hahahaha you are so right! Buddy! 🤜🤛


_Fredder_

As an atheist (in personal beliefs, politically I'm a secularist), I'm very happy about the existence of this sub. It's not only funny but often also informative about Christian beliefs and culture, and also often rather wholesome


tommythek

Yea, I also feel like in much of the US Christianity is so common in the culture that people outside of it understand as well. I'm atheist but was raised in a Christian family, which was the case for most atheists I know.


Greizen_bregen

I truly believe if Jesus of Nazareth walked the earth today, he would be the OC of so many memes in this sub!


jwinskowski

This right here 🙌🏻 I learn more about other Christian denominations by watching silly TikToks/memes on this sub than anywhere else.


thijsje656

As a reddheist i don't believe for a second this site is real. Its just made up

what lol

Haha idk i just wanted to be funny im kinda tired ngl

I couldn't tell whether you were trying to joke or make fun of me for being atheist lol


SignComprehensive611

Got a chuckle out of me!


SpecialEdShow

I don't know if I would call myself an athiest, but I am pretty much without religion. I do enjoy sending some of these memes to my mom, because she actually understands them and it's cathartic for me.


_Fredder_

You sound like you're an agnostic :)


SpecialEdShow

Yeah, it's closer to that. When I am around my family, I go through the motions anyway because it's nostalgic. I do enjoy our big catholic weddings.


_Fredder_

You do you bro/broette


ToddVRsofa

Yeah it's religion done right, you guys have a great sub here


JJonahJamesonSr

It’s how Christianity is supposed to be, love thy neighbor and spread the Word


FurryFlurry

Same as dude above. As a guy who's always been pretty hard left-leaning and surrounded by mostly very... "when convenient" Christians, this place has been very humanizing. Helped me get past some undue disdain towards Christians in general. Tryna be less shitty. It's slow work, but it's happening. Thank you guys. ❤️


ToddVRsofa

It's the kind of change the world needs, I've only discovered this sub yesterday and as an athiest I think this is my favorite sub, so wholesome, one love one heart


ShadowCory1101

Cause when we truly get together, we're alright.


ToddVRsofa

That's the only thing he ever wanted to happen, to have people of all races, all backgrounds, just getting together and having a good time


SenorAnonymous

> surrounded by mostly very... “when convenient” Christians, this place has been very humanizing. I know you don’t always see it, but that sort of behavior grieves us too. There is a pastor in my area who said if you’re only using Christianity as a convenient cultural thing instead of a loving and obedient service to Jesus, then you’ve actually got a pretty lame hobby and should go buy a boat instead.


MikeProwla

What kind of boat?


BigItalianMustache

It’s also a violation of the commandment “do not use the Lord your God’s name in vain”. Most people associate that commandment with people who say “oh my god!” But it’s really about those bear the image of God for the sake of their own gain. Anyway, great meme, love the wholesome comments.


MikeProwla

I thought it was a way of saying "don't break your promises". People used to (and still do) invoke their Gods to watch over any deals or promises they made. So using the Lord's name in vain would be to make a promise you know you will break or not trying to keep your word. (With God as my witness, or I swear to God as examples)


Wholesome_Soup

Right!! A lot of people misunderstand that.


DetBabyLegs

ToddVRsofa

As an athiest I must say this is the only religious meme group that seems to be any good, at the end of the day I don't care who's right, I'm just tired of the fighting


PartyClock

I enjoy this community too but let's not pretend there hasn't been a building hostility in this place. There is a reason the mods felt the need to post this after all


ToddVRsofa

Yeah but compared to the others this place dosent seem as bad


PartyClock

Agreed. That's why it will take work to keep it that way


ToddVRsofa

And why I will be hanging around


nifeman20

Amen brother. We’re glad to have you here.


ToddVRsofa

It's a pleasure to be here, sure I don't believe in God, but I can't help but find the idea of God to be very interesting


Lupicide56

I'm catholic, so I do believe in God, but I find the interpretations of God especially in other Abrahamic religions fascinating.


nifeman20

And as an American i respect your freedoms to do so. We love you either way my friend!


ToddVRsofa

Sending that love back at ya


nifeman20

Im glad this sub exists. It seems like everyone hates Christians nowadays (at least online)


ToddVRsofa

I'll admit my relationship with Christianity is very rocky at times, sometimes I poke fun but that's only towards the extreamist that are like what? 1% 2% of the Christian community, I know those people arnt what Christianity is about, but we are all trapped on this planet together we may as well try to get along


nifeman20

100% agree. Extremism is bad on all fronts


ToddVRsofa

It ruins everything for everyone, like anywhere there's a fan base there are extreamist, somewhere out there is an extreamist stamp collector lol


nifeman20

Those dang extremist stamp collectors soiling the name of stamp collectors


grancombat

Don’t worry, we poke fun at them, too. I saw a video recently of a death metal cover of Kenneth Copeland rebuking Covid and as good as the riff was, I couldn’t help but be embarrassed at how he thinks he has the authority to “rebuke” a disease and “command” it stop killing people. I understand why some people hate us


nifeman20

Lmfao it was hilarious


ToddVRsofa

Yeah when I first became athiest I was full on anti thiest, all of you were brainwashed idiots who could do no right, it went on for years until I suddenly came too, what am I thinking? This isn't me, I won't let hate get the better of me, so sinse then I've been trying to repair my relationship with religious people and I don't ever want to go back, I think my love of reggae music also helped a lot, I still poke fun but I try and make sure its not offencive, keep it nice and tasteful
