There is an old saying around these parts: If the shoe fits wear it. Are you not anti-religion, anti-bible, anti -jesus therefore anti- christ.
Direct answer to your question would be Damn right you are the anti-christ.

johnheadEven if someone were anti-Jesus that does not make them anti-Christ, you have yet to provide a single iota of evidence that the man Jesus was anointed by any deity. The Jews and Muslims certainly do not think he was the son of any god. Also there is a distinction between holding a position of being anti-Christ and being the actual supernatural boogeyman written about to scare ignorant adults into not asking questions.

Anti-religion, sure in the sense that I’m against any system which demands the surrender of reason and the freedom of thought in favor of blind obedience to the scripture of a single book.

Which brings us to being anti-bible. I’m against any book which claims to be written or inspired by a deity and above questioning. I’m against any book which commands the reader to execute people practicing a competing religion or for being a homosexual. I’m against a any book which claims that righteousness comes from one’s own willingness to murder their own child in the name of god or that one must accept without evidence that some god had his own child murdered on my behalf.

I can’t say I’m entirely anti-Jesus. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Among the sayings and discourses imputed to him [Jesus] by his biographers, I find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the most lovely benevolence; and others again of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism, and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same being.”

Lastly. “May it be to the world, what I believe it will be,(to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all,) the signal of arousing men to burst the chains under which monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government. All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of God.” -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Roger C. Weightman, June 24, 1826 (in the last letter he penned)
