I normally don't directly reply to you religies that are not registered for the simple reason you idiots just denie you posted it, with that being said, YOU claim Atheism is a religion, you are wrong. You claim a god exists, Prove It. You are just like yaa, 7th trump, defender, zany and all the other religie dumbasses, you got nothing. If you have a question log in create an account and we will discuss your false religion, till that time, prove your god exists or only be a whiny close minded cowardly christian hiding behind your non-existent god.

*giggle*

Just had an image in my mind of a person standing on a street waiting for a bus.
Then a stranger walks up, smacks him, and shouts "Stop that praying! I don't want you to do that!"

*snicker*

This is what Christians would have us believe happens to them; they are sooooo persecuted.(It makes them think they are more "holy.")

Why are atheists such whiny close minded cowards? They are not forced to pray, bow their heads or recite the pledge, yet they try to force you NOT to pray. They are not forced to participate in religious activities or forced to watch religious programming but they try to take that right away from you.
They cry about a christmas movie being shown but saying nothing when Harry Potter is viewed at school. Harry Potter is about witchcraft, a religion, but they are silent about that. They only fight against christianity being mentioned. I guess they know in their deep dark heart Christ is REAL, thats why they fight against him only
Wrong, and you know it. As a child I WAS forced to bow my head and pray, to recite pledges and prayers, to participate in religious activities and programs.
Harry Potter has as much to do with witchcraft as a bison herd has to do Edison inventing the light bulb. Have you even seen a Harry Potter movie?

Good morning, LOL. Happy Holidays to you, whichever one you enjoy.

Linda must have missed the part where the students at Hogwort's celebrated CHRISTMAS.
Not Yule, not Festivus, not Saturnalia...nope, none of those pagan festivals.

She must also have missed the parts about Harry leading the fight AGAINST Evil.

HP is a fable about the struggle of "good" versus "evil."
Hmmmm.... just like the bible.

It's sad that many people don't know the difference between fiction and reality.

Atheism is a religion, its based on faith, unproved dogma, unfounded transitional- species fossils. You have zealots like yourself that shout and stomp your feet to prove God doesnt exist. All atheists are bound together by a BELIEF in evolution its your religion.

Yep, and their leaders will get us in the end, literally if you happen to be under age.

Would you care to point out who "proved" this for you?

Witchcraft is using one's personal power to alter their own world.
No belief in a deity required.

You are very dense.

awitchinthewoods said.. Would you please show me who is forbidding you to pray as loud as you want to in your church or your own home? Or silently ANYWHERE?
I will personally do something about it.

First of all my free speech rights says I can pray ALOUD anywhere I want to. Free speech doesnt end at the school house doors. Second a teacher told my daughters friend she couldnt use a pencil that said,'Jesus loves you', what are you going to do about it? Nothing because you dont believe in religious rights.

LOL!
If I were a rocket scientist, wouldn't your hatred of humanistic science demonize me, anyway?
I don't believe in cutting and pasting from atheist web sites. They have too much resemblance to organized religion for my taste.

Hiya Witch, hope you also have a very happy holiday season. Yes the religious nuts on here display their ignorance every time they post and its dangerous, such hatred.

One confused little mind, you've got there. I've never seen anybody shouting and stomping while handing out Origin of Species pamphlets on street corners. I've seen it Christians doing it with their material, tho... Might I ask, are you now or have you ever been under psychiatric care?

If I'm wrong, that is my doing and will answer for myself. If you are wrong, you would doom another generation to the shackles of superstition and the damnation of free thought.
What free thought do you speak of. The current attitude of today is 'If it feels good do it'. Where is the respect for parents and authority in todays generation, where is the helping hand people used to give their neighbors, where are the days when you could send your child to school knowing they would be home that afternoon, where are the days when you could go to bed with your doors unlocked and sleep peacefully knowing you were safe, where is the work ethic and respect for human life? If 'free thought' means the death of morality, I would wrather be 'shackled'.

Nice try. But "freedom of speech" doesn't allow you to stand up praying in a mosque during their worship, shout out your prayers in a theatre during a performance, or in a restaurant full of diners.

YOU have the right to "freedom of speech" as long as you do not infringe on other people's rights.
YOU have "religious rights" (the right to practice YOUR particular brand of religion) as long as you are not trampling on the rights of others.

Religion has NO place in schools.
No praying in schools and no education in church.
Seems fair.
