It was obvious that the poster was not an Atheist and was mocking the behaviour of those like yourself , who condone such aberrant behaviour
The poster is an atheist. The post in question is from a site called AskTheAtheists.com . The post gave a clear answer that "informed consent" is the important factor in sexual acts and then followed that with a facetious sentence about how people are welcome to try having "consensual" sex with lions, tigers, bears, and alligators since they could really express a lack of consent.

Your lack of reading comprehension is not a knock against my ethics.
Curious wrote:
But , more to the point , Peter Singer states that hye sees nothing wrong with Beastiality or necrophilia as long as the perpetrator has the consent of him whom he is trying to sexually abuse.
...who cares what Peter Singer thinks? I'm not Peter Singer. Peter Singer is of no importance to me.

Rape by any other name ,is still rape , whether it be a Beast or a corpse.
Correct. I do not support any form of sex which is non-consensual. Your Bible does though.

I am against bestiality, necrophilia and any other non-consensual sexual acts. Happy?

Now can you explain why the god of the Bible condones rape?

Atheism is a faith,deny it all you want. The other "RANDOM ATHEISTS ' as you call them , are the selfsame debauchers who preach and advocate your faith.....Leaders of your faith and community ,, Peter Singer , Hitchens , Dawkins , Harris , Krauss etal.
Your denials are refuted by the facts.
You don't have any facts. You're just making the same claims over and over when they're wrong.

Atheism isn't a faith. It doesn't have any leaders. There are atheists who are more prominent than others, but prominence isn't leadership. Fred Phelps is a more prominent Christian than you are, Curious. Does that make him YOUR leader?

What I see is my accusing Atheist/ Evolutionists being charged with defending perverted and deviant behaviour and their disciples at a loss to defend such aberrant behaviour and throeing up smokescreens ... Crawl back under your rock and at your next zoophalia meeting try and come up with some acceptable response ,such as , we can't help ourselves ,we are deviants at heart..

As they say on the streets " Atheists eat that shit up like buttered popcorn.
"The darkest of these objects is fecal excrement, which Sade advocates that we consume with relish (no pun intended), writing,DeSade "No habit is more easily acquired than mard (excrement)-savoring; eat one, delicious, eat another, no two taste exactly alike, but all are subtle and the effect is somewhat that of an olive."
Your god makes people eat their own fecal matter. Surpise!! Your god's MOP, the bible.

As usual ,in your futile attempt to mislead and deceive ,you left out THE BLESSINGS for obedience and merely pointed to the punishment for disobedience.
Everyone was given a CHOICE and whichever they chose ,obedience or disobedience ,would depend on whether they would be blessed or cursed . It was the people's choice to make.If a curse befell them,it was of their own making.
The Chain of Fools of which you are a part, has many weak links
Blessings for Obedience

28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

7 The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

8 The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. 11 The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.

12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

Is Atheism A Mental Illness?
August 27, 2013 By Dr. Greg
. A vast body of research, amassed over recent decades, shows that religious belief is physically and psychologically beneficial – to a remarkable degree.
In 2004, scholars at UCLA revealed that college students involved in religious activities are likely to have better mental health. In 2006, population researchers at the University of Texas discovered that the more often you go to church, the longer you live. In the same year researchers at Duke University in America discovered that religious people have stronger immune systems than the irreligious. They also established that churchgoers have lower blood pressure.
Meanwhile in 2009 a team of Harvard psychologists discovered that believers who checked into hospital with broken hips reported less depression, had shorter hospital stays, and could hobble further when they left hospital – as compared to their similarly crippled but heathen fellow-sufferers.
The list goes on. In the last few years scientists have revealed that believers, compared to non-believers, have better outcomes from breast cancer, coronary disease, mental illness, Aids, and rheumatoid arthritis. Believers even get better results from IVF. Likewise, believers also report greater levels of happiness, are less likely to commit suicide, and cope with stressful events much better. Believers also have more kids.
What’s more, these benefits are visible even if you adjust for the fact that believers are less likely to smoke, drink or take drugs. And let’s not forget that religious people are nicer. They certainly give more money to charity than atheists, who are, according to the very latest survey, the meanest of all.

What is “Mental illness”– Does Atheism Fit?
There is a lot to this. Part of the problem, of course, is that there is no generally accepted definition of the terms “mental health” or “mental illness.”
Psychiatrist and brain researcher, Dr. Daniel Siegel, argues that mental health represents the degree of integration within and between the mind, the body and our relationships. He further argues that mental illness can be described as the falling out of this state of integration and lapsing into a relative state of increased rigidity, chaos or both. These are probably the best definitions of these terms I’ve ever encountered.
Seen in this light, I think there is a case to be made that atheism could be a mental illness. There are many more studies like Sean Thomas points to that strongly suggest that religious believers have significantly better integration with regard to health, mental health, relationship satisfaction, and pro-social behavior. We also know that there is strong comorbidity between atheism and high functioning autism. In general, while the occurrence of agnosticism or personalized spiritualities is quite high, the incidence of atheism stands at 1-5% in the general population, which is consistent with other mental disorders.
Can Belief Systems Be Disorders?
It isn’t enough to say that, because atheism is a belief system it should be exempt from being considered a mental illness. The belief that one is Napoleon is clearly evidence that something is not right. Also, I’m not picking on atheists, I would argue that any belief system that significantly inhibited the integration between or within one’s mind, body, and relationships was representative of, if not outright mental illness, than at least poorer mental health.
So, seen from this perspective, considering the relatively lower rates of mental, physical and social well-being enjoyed by atheists, it really isn’t unreasonable or inappropriate to ask if atheism either is a mental illness itself or is a contributor to poor mental well-being.

Curious, You are a joke, you've lost all credibility and respect. Posting the same links over and over that have been refuted only confirms how close minded and bias you are.
In my humble opinion, you are a lonely, sad individual who possibly suffers from some kind of mental illness, which would explain why you are so knowledgeable about the workings of these facilities and specific directions to them. You have extensive knowledge of the schedules in these facilities, Only a patient would have such information. So continue your masquerade if it makes you feel better.
