tenpoundsofcheese: the article is about them being hatemongers.
Lionel Mandrake: tenpoundsofcheese: SpikeStrip: i'll stop hating mormonism when utah starts allowing musicgood news!you can stop hating now.or nowmark your calendar for June 4th - Alice CooperBut you can keep hating Muslims, right?
lumiere: Okay, I'll bite. I'm curious to know what makes people think the vagina is feared and repulsed in Islam. I'm sincerely curious if you don't mind elaborating on that.
Divinegrace: Every time I meet someone and think "Wow, this person is spiteful, hateful, and/or self-centered asshat", I ask them about their faith...every time I have asked I find they are either agnostic or atheist.I will say this about agnostics and atheists...you folks are consistent.
bullsballs: Thanks to atheism, Sadism and living for the moment is AOK!
bullsballs: There is no God, and no need to worry about retribution after you die, as there is no afterlife, no Heaven or hell.
bullsballs: Everything is of man, so you can make your own rules to live and die by.
tenpoundsofcheese: atheists are intolerant.the article is about them being hatemongers.happy that you agree.
lumiere: I agree with you entirely. As Gandhi said: "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
staplermofo: The thing about phobias is that they have to be irrational fears. Like, if you're afraid of venomous spiders because your limited exposure to spiders prevents you from telling them apart, it's not a phobia. It's an appropriate fear a rational person would have. In the same way, if you're afraid of radical muslim terrorists blowing up your face and your limited exposure to muslims prevents you from telling them from harmless muslims, it's also not a phobia. The onus on the spiders to get us to understand why we shouldn't kill them, like the misunderstood spider meme. Sadly, the guy who posed for the ordinary muslim meme blew himself up at a checkpoint outside Jerusalem.
propasaurus: That's fascinating. Do tell me how much you Christians love Islam.
Uncle Tractor: NostroZ: If Atheists don't care about religion so much, why do they hate on people of faith so much?[i560.photobucket.com image 600x400]
NostroZ: If Atheists don't care about religion so much, why do they hate on people of faith so much?
GnomePaladin: Why is it that some religious folk are so sure that without the fear of eternal damnation they would instantly embark on a killrape spree the likes of which have never been imagined?
s2s2s2: No. Religion is
give me doughnuts: these Atheist institutions the human condition was still alive and well... and the human condition is TO BELIEVE IN SOMETHING... if that something is no longer God, then it becomes Humanity, and the species finally starts getting its collective shiat together.
Uncle Tractor: And these aren't punishments that are isolated to one sect, or cultural sub-group, or came out of nowhere - these are all things that are mandated by the Quran.The NT mandates burning apostates (see my prev post, the one with the pic).
liam76: Yeah, death penalty fro apostacy is a big problem in my book (not to mention 4 witnesses to prove rape, wife beating, etc), call me crazy.
Plant Rights Activist: any time you try and justify an unjustifiable action by saying, "god told me to do it" is evil. Regardless of which specific cult it is.
vactech: I could have swore the proper narrative was "Atheists liberals always give Islam (or any other religion) a free pass, and only pick on Christians"Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal, but in my experience protestant Christians are the worst Islam/Catholic-phobes evar. They just do their bigoted speeches on Sunday morning within the walls of their church.
adamatari: log_jammin: adamatari: I think the atheists saying Islam stands out as particularly bad have never read the old testament (go check out the Brick Testament, particularly Judges, anc come back to me), or never read history (nasty wars like the Thirty Years' War, no Muslims involved). Nor do they seem to know the facts on the ground as to who is really commited to cultural genocide and assimillation of non-believers. There are WAY more Christian and Mormon missionaries than Islamic ones.The point is that Islam is particular bad NOW, not thousands of years ago.Tell that to the literally stateless Palestinians, or even the Israeli Arabs whose political parties the other, Jewish parties ganged up on and tried to ban (which would have left the Israeli Arabs effectively disenfrachised - except the Supreme Court of Israel overturned this attempt). Or tell this to those who died in Iraq after a "Christian" president decided to go to war there. Or tell that to gays in Uganda and other African countries. Or, as I said, take a look around NOW and see who is out there undermining every traditional culture with its own values left in the world.Arguing that Islam is particularly bad among the Abrahamic religions is like arguing the relative terribleness of MRSA, AIDS, and cancer.
jonny_q: If the Internet has taught me anything, it's that there are a lot of people who know how to type with nothing useful to say.
omnibus_necanda_sunt: bunner: Religion and atheism have a lot in common. They both like to blowhard false dichotomies between two approaches to life that have, so far, gotten us here. Carry on. Fresh poo and incredulous smirks at the popcorn stand.Oh, for Christ's sake, all you ever do is mock people who support Democrats, Republicans, or third party candidates; private sector solutions or government ones; religion or irreligion. Just like with Amos, I'm beginning to think all you ever do is complain that the world is shiatty and refuse to offer any goddamned solutions. We got your point in the first dozen threads. Knock it off and be constructive.
bunner: neversubmit: Magical thinking in adults is sad.

ciberido: The Snow Dog: FTA: " Like a lot of atheists, I read a bunch of books about atheism and the shortcomings of religion and smirked at the inconsistencies contained in the Bible and Christianity's other texts." [The books arguing against Christianity were] "stuff written by men-almost always men, almost always white men, not that that matters."Wait, whatnow? Maybe that's because you're white. If you were an atheist born in Cairo or Calcutta or Peking your statement would probably not hold true.Maybe. Has anybody ever done a study showing what percentage of published atheists are white, what percentage are male, and how that compares to, say, all published authors?It does kind of seem like most "movement atheists" who blog (or write books, or tweet) in English about being atheist are white males, but I'm not aware of any hard statistics that back up that perception.Perhaps someone who's actually been to an atheist convention would care to comment on how many people there were nonwhite or female?

lacydog: I find the most recent SMBC to be relevant here. Most atheists I know are like me (also an atheist). They believe what they believe and they don't give a fark about what other people believe. And I know plenty of Christians who are like that. And I also know quite a few pagans/wiccans like that. A taoist, too. For the vast majority of the population, faith is personal and we don't need to scrutinize the faith of others. But then...
miss diminutive: Gunther: Is Sam Harris the atheist pope now?And if so, what shape is his hat?
Relatively Obscure: What I'm wondering, though, is what atheism puts in place of that morality and framework that religions provide.Oh, this shiat again.
log_jammin: lumiere: I'm curious to know what makes people think the vagina is feared and repulsed in Islam.because they are full of sand. duh.
tenpoundsofcheese: I was agreeing that they are intolerant.
cman: propasaurus: That's fascinating. Do tell me how much you Christians love Islam.The writer of the article is atheistThis is an atheist biatching about bigotry
SpikeStrip: i'll stop hating mormonism when utah starts allowing music
doglover: What's the fancy word for people who like cilantro?
Mugato: Did you tell an adult? Oh you're a girl, nevermind.
Lorelle: OK, so I hate Catholicism a little bit more than other religions, but that's because I had it shoved down my throat for the first 17 years of my life.
