Wow! Such outrage.
I trust you also feel the same sense of outrage when considering how your god instructed his followers to take slaves.
In fact, given that you acknowledge that slavery is so bad you must really hate your god for not ending it when he clearly had the power to do just that.
No doubt you seethe with rage when you realise that your god took the time and effort to issue instructions not to boil a kid goat in its mother's milk and how people must not wear mixed fabrics. Yet he completely failed to tell people not to keep slaves. That must make you really mad.
You see, one of the differences between you and me is that I freely acknowledge that slavery in the British Empire was a bad thing.
Yet when it comes to slavery under your god, it becomes wonderful and caring and an example of his transcendent love.
Let's also remember that the Brits ended slavery before the Americans did.
In fact, let's also remember how, inspired by the Bible, American christians were prepared to fight and die in their thousands for the right to keep slaves.
Yep, and that's why we have Southern Baptist which I'm sure some of these posters belong to that religion. They split because they said the bible allows them to have slaves. Oh yeah, and because they didn't want their women voting.

Got to love the bible, you can use t to justify anything you want. What a joke.

You do know that the Atheist church is making fun of religion right? A place for people of like thinking to come together and have fun without being threatened with hell.
They sing Bon Jovi songs for Christ sakes. It is funny tho how quick it's growing once you take out all the lies and most of the idiots.
Let me clarify for you why Atheists have been branded as fools.
Their actions serve to confirm what we already know about them.
The Atgheist Church is NOT making fun of religion ,as you foolishly claim.

Harry Cheadle at Vice admits he started on his path toward atheism because he "wanted to stay home on Sundays." But the idea of an atheist church has him reconsidering his aversion to organized religion:Since I'm an atheist, I'll base this claim on data:

"Studies have shown that those who go to church are happier, more optimistic, and healthier than others; attending religious services helps kids fight depression and by some accounts makes people more charitable. Obviously most atheists won't have a very good time gathering at a church or synagogue or temple where everyone is devoted to praising and beseeching an imaginary being, but if you believe these studies, they could do with attending something like church.[Vice]"

Says I; The fool completely ignores the point that , it is precisely because those who attend religious services do so,in order to praise and beseech God , That the benefits he mentioned ,happier ,healthier and more optimistic than others come as a result of Worship and praise.

Most assuredly , thosed results are not caused by the Superstition that,if a group of people get together in a room and play Bon Jovi music"although Bon Jovi is a Christian" that they will be healthier,happier and more optimistic.
If you believe that, all you need to do is buy a Bon Jovi CD and play it at home.

"Ian Dodd, the Los Angeles Assembly co-founder, isn't daunted by atheism's definitional lack of common faith: "The church model has worked really well for a couple of thousand years," he tells Salon. "What we're trying to do is hold on to the bath water while throwing out the baby Jesus"

Says I; This fool ,Ian Dodd , completely ignores the fact that the Church model was based on the teachings of OUR LORD ,Jesus Christ.
It is HIM that draws us to Church and HE is the reason that the church model works.
His foolishness has blinded him to that fact.

Jones hopes that the Sunday Assemblies will start taking on some of the community functions traditionally performed by churches: Sunday school, weddings, funerals, non-religious BAPTISMS (or "naming ceremonies"), among others.

It won't be the first time atheists have tried to band together, Nick Spencer at Theos tells Britain's The Guardian. In the 19th century, non-religious people formed hundreds of "ethical unions," focused on good works and community, with services structured along the lines of a church liturgy. They lasted for a generation or two.

Says I; In the past ,when Atheists banded together and focused on good deeds and community , with services structured along the lines of a church liturgy ,they failed totally , because they left out the ingredient that keeps it all together , belief in God and trusting Jesus Christ.

Let me give you an example of Atheistic Foolishness'
If you have a toothache ,you can not simply go to the dentist's office ,say hello to those in the waiting room and then go back homeand expect your toothache to go away.
The main ingredient is the Dentist. If you eliminate him you will not be cured ,regardless of how many times you go to his office.
Going to church and denying God serves the same useless purpose.

You just threw another stinkbomb as a smokescreem.
It is 1 God ,living , intelligent and conscious,who created the Universe and all therein.
That which you worship , that nothing created something from nothing can be compared favorbly with the many monikers that appear
on this thread.
The monikers are nonliving ,nonintelligent and nonconscious ,albeit we can conclude that these monikers were created by some form of intelligence.
Nevertheles , they posses no living power of their own.
That being said,they are more real than the nonsense you place your faith in , which you are quite unable to defend.
It is clear you live in the mind that all things must be as they appear to the simple mind.
I have no doubt that this is how and why the inventers of your god made up the story of creation. None of this imaginative thinking makes it true.
The ancients believed only an intelligent mind made lighting strike and where. It struck those that were bad. But then that gap of knowledge was filled, so that god died (for most).

We have heard your theory, and it does not change the fact that grouping together is what humans do, and it is good. It may not have all the effects of what your group has, but that could be a good thing. As we have pointed out that bad effects those have been shown to be. No need to repeat it.

That certainly is not the teaching of Christ.....
So you do not think Moses was doing the right thing? Make up your mind dude. You cannot have your cake and eat it also.
Did Jesus say Moses was wrong? Nope. Jesus said he did not come to destroy the law of the prophets. You should follow the laws of the prophets, Jesus says. I suppose that includes Deuteronomy 13 6-10. So I say you are wrong, and the bible shows you wrong. This is why I do not want the bible taught in schools.
You and YaA defend Moses and his mass murder spree.

Well , the fact is that Atheists are grouping together in order to have the same benefits as Christians do ,in which they will fail ,as they did in their previous attempts , because they leave God out of the equation. It is through God that we attain these benefits,not by getting together and listening to Bon Jovi , as the wacko from Somerset claims.

Did you see where they have even borrowed the Christian ritual of Baptism?

That Smacks of Christian wannabes without Christ
In other words , you want God's blessing , because you know it is for your well being , but , you want no part of God.
Outwardly you deny him ,subconsciously , you seek him ,because it is obvious to your subconscious ,that you need him.

Your denials are futile and made null and void by your actions,

Thank you for correcting Khatru . You are right ,There is only one God.
That Khatru believes there may be as many as Fifty is ,at least , a step in the right direction,as opposed to his previous belief that Nothing created Somethinf from nothing and, because of the law of Gravity , this Nothing , spontaneously created the Universe and life as we know it.
At least , that is the dumb(*) theory spouted by Stephen Hawkins , world renowned Scientist.
Oddly enough , many famous Atheists , Nietzch and Freud come to mind , where ultimately declared to be insane.
Not saying Dawkins is insane ,but, that is an insane theory.
You've shown all of us your tortuous logic trail leading to your conclusion that our universe was magicked together by supernatural means.

Now you're claiming that it was just the one cosmic mega-being behind it all and not a consortium of them.

Where do you get that from?

You are the one claiming that it was a consortium of God's that created the Universe.
I disagree with that conclusion , however , it makes much more sense ,than your previously held ,inane,illogical ,nonsesical ,illconceived ,devoid of intellect and eunuchized belief thatNothing created something out of nothing ,thereby spontaneously creating the Universe and life as we know it.

Now ,another Brit atributes all this nonsense to the Law of Gravity.

You may already know this but in the usa there is the bible belt. It is heavily populated with the religiously impaired. What I find interesting is the bible belt has the highest obesity per cap, highest in under educated people and the highest murder rate. I guess god needs fat stupid killers.

The Old Testament tells us of Jesus's coming.
The New Testament confirms his arrival.
That,in spite of the nonsense spouted by former monokers as UMM and Yiago.
I am assuming that they are still here ,using other monikers and you may well be one or both of those.
So, it makes me no difference which is taught.
Those parents who oppose having it taught to their children should be given the opportunity to have their children withheld from attending those classes.
They should be made available only to those who wish to attend.

Good reason to get rid of right wing religious extremist. Fascism using religious support trying to achieve their goals. Can fascism exists without religious support?
