I rarely create posts, don't feel the need to, but with the atheist here lately on attack mode, hell why not? To be so anti holy, they sure be acting "holier than thou" let's think of this a different way. Put down bible verse bs on this thread and lets compare the two entities as productive unit to society. "hence the title"

Christians, as well other religious groups does so much for their community and the
World.
Feeding and clothing the needy(even if they don't believe in god)<--- pretty cool of em huh?
Giving away toys to parents to give to their kids on christmas that can't afford them.(no requirement to believe in god on this one either)

Giving people money to pay the utilities to keep there lights, and water on.

Going around to people's homes handing out meals

Going to people's houses building wheelchair ramps and other repairs for people that need them, at no charge (I've helped with this one personally) awesome feeling!!

When hurricane Katrina hit, before the coast guard could get to them, before the national guards could get to the people for help. The Amish was already there, the first on the scene, with a camp set up with food, water, clothing, first aid supplies, and they were going through the wreckage trying to save and help all they could.

And There is plenty plenty more, that are not listed, that they do.

( And with everything they do, it's not a requirement to even believe as they do!)
Again, what has an atheist group or organization done for you? So quick to lash out at a qroup of people that does so much for the world. When they themselves just sit on their azz and try to sue, and complain about the ones that do! Ha! If that's not pathetic, I don't know what is! Now it's not all Atheist, but it's the majority of them!

"B_rad",....was glad to see your thread and post. I guess it was like a friendly boost to a society that is somehow wrongfully torn apart by those who refuse to see the sunshine. Despite what little Denver, Seattle, the FFR, etc. has managed to squeeze out of the lackluster, there is always a brighter and better side. Thankx again!

All the things I've listed are facts, not made up assumptions like you assume because I take up for religion I'm a Christian. I'm not a Christian. But do believe in god. So this "complex" is false.
For sure

The atheists tell me they lack a life to be so worried about my religion. Something they don't believe exists, so if you think it don't then why bother with it? I don't go looking for vampires!! Why? Simple, don't believe in them so why bother.

That would fall under Myth #7):

"Atheist lives are bleak and lack meaning. Those in the atheist activist community find this one particularly insipid, because we so often deal with people who suffered religious abuse and were only able to find peace by abandoning religion. There’s really no reason to believe that happiness and fulfillment come from a supernatural place, or else believers would have no need for fulfilling work, loving families, friends, and hobbies, since their spiritual beliefs would suffice. Most atheists actually find our lack of belief in a supernatural being makes it easier to fill our lives with meaning and joy. Since we don’t believe in an afterlife, many of us find ourselves more motivated to make the most out of the time we do have instead of looking to the next life to make us happy."

The more you post, the dumber you sound. Do you not realize the oppressiveness xtians have placed on society for centuries? Of course not, according to the indoctrinated responses you continuously post. You people overwhelmingly believe that your religion is top dog, numero uno, and/or the shiz nit, AND that everyone in the entire world should put aside their personal beliefs (or lack of), bow their heads, and listen to you people spew that nonsensical BS at every public function. Earth to xtian, that crap is slowing rapidly because not everyone wants to hear it.
Your religions are not in jeopardy. Pray your ass off if you want, just do it in personal or designated religious places. It's not an atheists fault that you are childish enough blame Mr Desoto for your fallible doctrine's shortcomings. Learn more about what you perceive to be true and quit cherry picking. All it does is create ire and debases your character.

Well, considering as of this point in the week I've resuscitated one victim of cardiac arrest, and treated numerous other people as a Volunteer Paramedic for everything from Traumatic Injuries to Diabetic Emergencies, I'd say I've helped other people plenty as an Atheist.

Or were you just trying to troll?

You damn skippy that xtians need to pray in private. That's my personal opinion, and yes, I'm aware of what opinions are like. You have 24hrs a day to pray, but you people insist on interrupting everyone's else's public enjoyment by having some sap lead a rambling prayer. This is not just about atheism, it's about other religions as well. Someday you'll realize that christianity is not "the only religion" in America. As far as your freedom of speech is concerned, that's a straw man your building. If you're referring to what the FFRF is accomplishing, then your as delusional as religion requires you to be.
