macross87: You know what really grinds my gears?!!?
r1niceboy: But those extremist atheists just drink beer and talk about outer space. Shameful.
Caffienatedjedi: Having spent time working for my municipal library, I know two things.1: The board is usually not that smart2: Never turn down free money.Seriously,the people with the least idea of what they are doing are in charge of basically everything public. Libraries, schools, etc.
Popular Opinion: Slartibartfaster: Popular Opinion: pillow biteryou sound bitter, twisted, and full of hatebut that is freedom of speachthank you for the latitude to use amusing (if only to me) descriptors.i say that only with the most respectful intentions. it brings me joy.
RidersOfLohan: Have you ever known an atheist who didn't tell anyone and everyone, at every single chance that they are an atheist?
jso2897: Guy belongs to something called "The Friendly Atheist" some atheist club, I assume - he was donating on their behalf, as best I can understand the wretchedly written article. Possiblysaid it on the check, maybe?
RidersOfLohan: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: It's weird that the park and library would even know about this guy's atheism. What, did they do a background check on him or some shiat? How would they even know?Have you ever known an atheist who didn't tell anyone and everyone, at every single chance that they are an atheist? It's like people who can't pass an opportunity to say "I'm italian"
C18H27NO3: I'm an atheist that volunteers at my local food bank every Thursday so I'm getting a kick...Granted I'm not giving them money but I am giving them my time. Please do justify how I am doing wrong and that you should take that away from those that I've have helped in some way because that's what this fiasco is doing; not allowing me to help people because of my non-beliefs.Assholes.
Popular Opinion: Pitabred: Popular Opinion: Ed Grubermann: Popular Opinion: if you hate anyone, you are not christian,So, there are no Christians. Nice to know we've got that settled.i think there have been a few. i don't qualify, obviously.Jesus, if he existed, might have been a Christian. But then again, he wailed on some money changer ass with some definite hate, so I'm pretty sure even he's out of the running...frustration and embarrassment is not hate. jmohe was embarrassed that faith had been exploited by greed.and frustrated that this was generally accepted.i can't say i would have acted differently, especially if i was the son of the big guy,
Pitabred: No, the church lady next door was just lied to by her priest about creationism and science, told that atheists are devil worshipers, that gays are abominations, that Republicans are all Christians and that Obama is a Muslim, and took all that "information" to the voting booth.
a particular individual: hardinparamedic: Their motives are always alteriorUlterior. I tell you this only because I honestly think you care, and will remember it./not a language nazi.jpg
JohnnyC: I've had friends become Christians and then spend all their time trying to convince me that I'm going to burn in a pit of fire and be tortured for eternity unless I join their club because they knew I was an atheist...
Popular Opinion: if you hate anyone, you are not christian,
Gyrfalcon: So, how do you fail to "actively participate," assuming you weren't standing ostentatiously in the front of the room glaring at everyone while they were kneeling in prayer? And how did they know otherwise? This always mystifies me, because as a nondenominational agnostic, I occasionally get forced into Catholic church (for my nephews' confirmations, etc.) and I do not participate in their arcane rites; but I don't do it in an obvious way; I just sit quietly in the pew while they kneel, stand, pray, etc.So unless you're aggressively mocking the preacher during services, how do these mooks know you're not "actively participating"? Are you supposed to fall down and begin speaking in tongues?
Popular Opinion: JohnnyC: Christians... if you're not one of them, you're their enemy. They have a very long history proving that... as hard as they can.what would you know about it johnny? tell me why you think you know.there is a big difference between not believing in something and bashing people that do believe.this intolerance is why real atheists want to distance themselves with your typical fark atheist.
