Atheists Are Well-Organized Hate Group - freerepublic (new window)

FTFA: Indeed, the atheists couldn't have found a more hateful roster of speakers for today's rally.

It includes Oxford University Prof. Richard Dawkins, author of the polemic, "The God Delusion," who wrote that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a "vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser, a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

Then there's Adam Savage, the proud third-generation atheist, the co-host of "Mythbusters" on the Discovery Channel. In a 2010 speech to the Harvard Humanism Society, Savage said "the need for God" by those who do not share his godlessness is similar to the "need for conspiracy theories."

It never seems to occur to people that people who are asses really has nothing to do with their belief paradigm. People who are asses will be asses regardless, the belief paradigm is just what they found easiest to support being an ass.

Now, Dawkins is an ass, there's no doubt about it. I don't know about Savage.

Now the use of religion in the public sphere in America is a whole different discussion.

I was somewhat amused, though, in the Free Republic article where someone said "They're relying on Christians acting like Christians, which doesn't always work." There's just something so fittingly passive-aggressive about it.

Well, he has little else to do after his show was cancelled. It's a good thing that God saved the people in that house they targeted with their childish stunts.

The problem has never been about belief.

It has been what folks have done that that belief.

Simply having belief doesn't accomplish a damn thing. Simply having faith is not enough.

Pray to God, but row to shore. An old Russian saying, but it does encapsulate part of the problem when folks rely on faith, and faith alone. Faith in God, without actions doesn't do anything. It can guide your hands, it can give you purpose, but in the end, you have to act, and act with purpose.

It isn't just about praise and hallelujahs, but actions. This goes across many faiths. Not just Christianity or Judaism, or Islam, but Buddhism and many others. Faith without action is nothing but hopes. And while hope can give you resolve, it isn't enough by itself.

Faith can inspire. Faith can help you focus. It can help you stay strong. It can help you find purpose. It's not a be all and end all though. Faith without action, faith without living those lessons--as opposed to a pu pu platter of platitudes and a grab bag of verses that you like, but ignoring the parts about responsibility and duty to your fellow man--is useless.

Faith can be fulfilled, it can be fulfilling, but it takes effort. It takes living up to those ideals. It's not just saying "Holy! Holy! Holy!" while ignoring the starving in the street or the orphans that your wars create. You want folks to turn to your deity, then you do so not by dunning them and telling them how terrible their lives are, but by being a beacon, by living as an example.

I am a theist. And a Buddhist. I don't really have a dog in the fight against Jahweh, or the War on Christmas, and I enjoy cooking for folks on Easter Sunday, but I hate to see folks who get fired up about the Godless, when their own houses are out of order. Folks who forget the message that their Jesus gave on the Sermon on the Mount--one of the most powerful messages of responsibility and calls to action in the Bible--and that saddens me, because of that "Pick a Verse" mentality, that elevates words over the message. That venerates words over people. That venerates belief over action.

Belief without action is just saying words. Live your faith. Be that beacon, and you'll find more folks drawn to it, than all the Hellfire and Brimstone testaments.

A great cure for boredom is to find a Christian fundie and tell them that their god is the same as the Muslim god. Then ask them how often do they pray to Allah.

It's sad that we've come to the point where a simple statement of self-evident fact results in cheering, simply because majority opinion doesn't see it as self-evident.

Excellent speech, though.

Here is my theory on atheists. They are pretty much all white males and liberals. Now, all liberals classify themselves as "victims" so where does that leave the white male? They are the oppressors in the victimology of their political party. Therefor, they declare themselves to be atheists and claim they are being oppressed and victims as well. The fact that nothing of the sort is true is of no consequence asliberalism is based strictly on childish emotions and feminine hysteria.

I'll put it as bluntly as possible. If you disagree with anything he has said, then you disagree with the DoD. Every technology in use and in development by the DoD is powered by this speech and by nothing else. We have no defense without this man's words: literally none whatsoever. If you disagree with just one word, then you hate the DoD, and necessarily you hate the USA; indeed, you are the enemy.

Disagree. It's fantastically bad trolling.

I'm a white male and I'm successful. I will either die wealthy or live forever. I'm not a victim; likewise I have created no victims and I oppress nobody. The majority of my supervisors have been black and/or women. Thanks to my intellect and experience, I will always be promotable. My life is blossoming and will improve drastically with time.

Meanwhile you're conservative and stupid. You hate everyone who is not exactly like you and you blatantly lie when you claim that this is untrue. You vote against your interests because you sin with pride. You hate your children for reasons you don't fully understand because you were punished as a child for things you didn't understand which led you to sin against your god. You don't care because in your wrath against your foes, you have sinned against your god. You despise any suggestion that proper nutrition is in fact ideal for health because you are gluttonous, even though in the course you have sinned against your god. If I wrote any more, and i could write BOOKS about how worthless you are, I would have to vomit. You're farking incredible; you're farking incredulous.

Science fact: conservatives hate their own god. It's pathetic, but it's true. You're all damned.
