The "nones" have it. You religious are slowly fading into the past along with VCR's and 8 tracks.

A new educated society will not tolerate religious ignorance anymore.

We are making it silly and embarrassing to claim "god" is a real thing...and that "he" is to be worshipped.

Welcome to the new America. Soon "in god we trust" will be off the money and out of govt. Soon bibles will be in the fantasy section under FICTON. The god virus is dying fast!!!!!!!!

What a great day!!!!!I hope I live to see islam fall also....and every other religion that hurts/blinds/stunts/infects humans!!!!!!

My faith will never fade even if you remove God from everything you see and I will never be embarrassed of my beliefs. VCR's and 8 tracks had no choice in the matter but I do. We knew you were coming, we knew your day would arrive. Bask in it all you can, I wish you well.

And what happens to the nation that decides they no longer want to be servants of Almighty God? What happens to that nation that wants the freedom to indulge in every sin and every vice they can imagine? They become the objects of God’s wrath. And they experience “the horrible enslavement of the freedom they desire.” But you see, when we think of God’s wrath, we think of things being destroyed. And cities being wiped out.•Not long after God created man, He was sorry He ever created the lot of us.So He sent a flood, and wiped out the whole human race, except for 8 people.
•Not long after that, men built a tower in the land of Babel, to worship angels and stars.So God destroyed the tower, confused their languages, and scattered them abroad.
•Not long after that, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were filled with homosexual lust, and all other kinds of sexual perversion.So God rained down fire on these cities and destroyed them.
• Not long after that, as Moses was on Mt. Sinai receiving the Law that would guide us to Christ, the people at the bottom of the mountain were having a drunken orgy, worshipping their golden calf.So God opened up the earth and swallowed them alive.
I think you get the idea. Time after time, man rebels against God. And time after time, God pours out His wrath and destroys them. If you want to see this pattern displayed over and over again, read the book of Judges. But sometimes, God shows His wrath by giving the people everything they want. In the book of Numbers, in chapter 11, we read about the people of Israel who had been in the desert for forty years. And God had fed them every single day. Every night at sunset, all they had to do was go out, gather up the manna, and they eat for the next day. But, are we humans ever satisfied with what we have? Being the selfish creatures we are, always want more. So the people cried out to Moses,“We miss the onions and the garlic and the melons we enjoyed freely in Egypt!” They had forgotten that in order to “enjoy them freely,” they had to suffer under the yoke of bondage to Pharaoh. So God told Moses to gather the people together; and that day the people gathered. And all of a sudden here come all these quail—all the meat they could want. And in Numbers 11:31-33--And the people rose all that day and all night and all the next day, and gathered the quail. Those who gathered least gathered ten bushels…While the meat was yet between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD struck down the people with a very great plague. In other words, while they were still chewing, the meat turned to poison in their mouths, and they died. They got what they wanted. God gave them what they wanted. Be careful what you wish for.

"And what happens to the nation that decides they no longer want to be servants of Almighty God?"

Well, if you recall, the Founders drafted the first Constitution in history that separates government from religion. For the last few centuries, overall, our country has faired well.

Yes, like the monarchy controlled Anglican Church or the Catholic Church's control of all of Europe at that time. Read a history book please. Governments were saying "We only allowl 'X' belief, all others have no power/rights/etc.". Thus the Puritan settlers and others seeking religious freedom, as in freedom to believe as they wished without others forcing a state-sponsored religion down their throat. This is where Jefferson took the idea and made it into the doctrine that Christians now want to do away this. A few hundred years and you completely forget your past. No ones you can believe 2000 year old bedtime stories.

It was created to protect religious freedom and to keep religion out of government and away from power. They corrupt each other.

The biggest fear that the founding fathers had was not that the government would control the church, it was that the church would get control of the government. The Church that most of them had in mind was the Roman Catholic, and that fear persisted right down to the 20th century.

In a twist or irony, Southerners in what is today the "Bible Belt" were among those most opposed to and afraid of the church getting control of the government. The church that the South feared and actually hated were the Puritan Congregationalists of New England.

Democracy (means Priest rule)

Churches signed away their Birthright
for a so-called benefit known as a "Tax-exempt corporation." Meaning government has control over religious institutions by having them come under their jurisdiction as corporations under:

Section 501(c)(3).
under Title 26 of the
Internal Revenue Code (U.S. Code)

This is supposed to prevent the clergy, Pastors, Ministers, etc. from having any political influence on its members or the public in general. Meaning government regulates what is to be said and not to be said.

These churches also display the gold fringe flag.
Meaning, whether they know it or not, their faith is in government not God. They exist by permission of government, not by God alone.

Some wall of seperation, nothing is what it seems.

The ideal was that churches exist alone.
No permission of government required. But that was just the ideal. Words, synbols and such have very precice meanings no matter what is said.

Fear and desire lead to ignorance and ignorance is only lack of knowledge. Education and truth are the keys to being free, while supporting the rights of those with whom you disagree, is the only way to live in a free society...

That does not give you the right to tell people they cant worship God.
It is a 2-way street, for them to be free for their beliefs also.

You are wrong. YOU cant stand it when non believers are JUST as vocal/open/public as YOU. Thats the problem. You think YOUR god is numero-uno.

How many times you ever had an atheist knock on your door to talk and hand you a atheist booklet?????

Thats damn right NEVER!!!!!!!!!!

Now how many "god" followers have you had knock at your door? Probably at least a few!!!!!!

You dont like the fact that us non believers (BTW you are an atheist when it comes to islam...soooo you are and atheist ALSO!!!)
have no fear about shouting OUR beliefs just as freely as you.

Thats what you dont like, but you will never admit it.

Too bad. I will be just as arrogant as the next christian. Thats right....I sure will.

Not my intentions at all, so we are good, no problem with the concept of God but religions are another story. Nothing rises above its source. Knowledge of the/our source is the real enlightenment. Denying yourself knowledge because it's outside your comfort zone is quite sad. Projecting those prejudices onto others is even more sad.

I know this is supposed to be somewhat tongue in cheek but it oozes the truth!!

Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim
Terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.
Lets have a look at the evidence:
- No Christmas
- No television
- No nude women
- No football
- No pork chops
- No hot dogs
- No burgers
- No beer
- No bacon
- Rags for clothes
- Towels for hats
- Constant wailing from some idiot in a tower
- More than one wife
More than one mother in law
- You can't shave
- Your wife can't shave
- You can't wash off the smell of donkey
- You cook over burning camel shit
- Your wife is picked by someone else for you
- and your wife smells worse than your donkey
Then they tell you that "when you die, it all gets better"??
Well no sh*t Sherlock!....
It's not like it could get much worse
THE MUSLIMS ARE NOT HAPPY!

They're not happy in Gaza ..
They're not happy in Egypt ..
They're not happy in Libya ..
They're not happy in Morocco ..
They're not happy in Iran ..
They're not happy in Iraq ..
They're not happy in Yemen ..
They're not happy in Afghanistan ..
They're not happy in Pakistan ..
They're not happy in Syria ..
They're not happy in Lebanon ..

SO, WHERE ARE THEY HAPPY?

They're happy in Australia .
They're happy in Canada .
They're happy in England ..
They're happy in France ..
They're happy in Italy ..
They're happy in Germany ..
They're happy in Sweden ..
They're happy in the USA ..
They're happy in Norway ..
They're happy in Holland .
They're happy in Denmark .

Basically, they're happy in every country that is not Muslim
and unhappy in every country that is!

AND WHO DO THEY BLAME?

Not Islam.
Not their leadership.
Not themselves.

THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN!

AND THEN; They want to change those countries to be like....
THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

Excuse me, but I can't help wondering...
How damn dumb can you get?

My name is Christye from Canada I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 5years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not my self again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine lucky told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr super. I email Dr super the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr super for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is ([email protected]) you are the best among all the spell caster online I hope you see my testimonies and also pray for my family too.

You have everything to lose, especially and specifically the only life you are guaranteed. If you live that life believing in superstition and mythology instead of helping further man kind by living in reality then you have given your life away and not contributed to the bettering of this species AT ALL.

Don't ever think there isn't a payoff for believing in a folly.

If you were once saved you will always be saved. It cant be taken away from you. So yes if you were saved 15 yrs ago you are still saved. However i do believe we will have things to answer after we got saved unless we make it right before we die. For example, i was saved at age 11. Now i have done alot of sinning since age 11, now im 29. If i do not ask forgiveness of the sins i have committed since my salvation i will answer for those to god when i get to heaven.
I am sorry you were indoctrinated at such a young age. You had your entire life to live and someone (presumably your parents) took that away from you. For that, I am truly sorry for you.

You couldn't be further from the truth. It is clear you have no understanding of reality or science.
