ImmaHoopyFrood: I thought it was:Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day.Teach a man to fish and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
Epicedion: capt.hollister: If it's private property, don't plant it in the middle of public land.Yep, they call that 'littering.'
HairyTwatter: I often say, "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Give a man a religion, and he'll starve to death while praying for a fish" so I'm getting a kick.
lack of warmth: And you are just looking for an argument.
Enemabag Jones: But the rise of the unforgiving atheist that can't tolerate religion and has to be smugly right just sort of bugs me as just as self-righteous and arrogant as any militant Christian.
Egoy3k: Enemabag Jones: But the rise of the unforgiving atheist that can't tolerate religion and has to be smugly right just sort of bugs me as just as self-righteous and arrogant as any militant Christian.Yeah but for some of them they see it as if they are responding to someone who believes in unicorns or ghosts. It's not being smug to them it's dealing with insanity. I agree with them myself but I try not to be a dick to people I don't know but that's not right either. We live in a culture that is tangled up with ancient superstitions some of which we openly mock and others are untouchable. This attitude of making some superstitions untouchable just gives them more credence.Just replace religion with some other myth and you can understand why many athiests try to 'make a stand'.I have a right to teach my children about ghosts and a right to my opinion you can't tell me they don't exist that's infringing my right to freedom of believing in ghosts.The reason we are having so many disasters is we have taken phlogiston out of America! We need to bring phlogiston back into our country and teach it in every school.The teacup teaches us all that our duty is to preach to the unbelievers that they will suffer eternal torment if they do not believe in the celestial teacup!
Egoy3k: FLMountainMan: He could have accomplished his goal a lot more diplomatically, and had the opportunity to open up a constructive dialogue that would have probably furthered his own cause more.His cause doesn't need to be furthered. He is 100% correct and the law is on his side.
katerbug72: It was 21-6. The atheist is a sore loser. Why should he care if they want to put up a cross? It's easy to ignore./atheist
Panatheist: katerbug72: It was 21-6. The atheist is a sore loser. Why should he care if they want to put up a cross? It's easy to ignore./atheista popular vote is sometimes like two wolves and one sheep deciding what to have for lunchdoes majority always rule? this is why we have rights, so people don't get steamrolled by an idiot mob.
katerbug72: I guess I just don't care enough about what religious people do to get my panties in a twist about it.
Crewmannumber6: Did the cross belong to the athiest? No? Then it's a destruction of private property issue, not a religious issue.
