I am open and honest enough to answer your question, now you wish to whine about my honesty? You can lie about your parents if you wish, I try not to lie, unlike yourself.
It is your opinion that your parents are closeminded , delusionaland a source of embarassment
If you want to inform them that that is your opinion of them ,do so.
I don't wish to lie about my parents,nor do I have a reason to do so.
I also have no reason to claim that they are delusional ,closeminded or a source of embarassment to me.

Guess that is why many Atheists want to abolish the 10 Commandments...

I am sure no Muslims feel they are in a delusion believing Mohamed was a prophet. See how this works? Clearly you have not yet grasped this simple concept.
I have yet to hear any of you Christians show an understanding of this concept. Thus you seem to lack a certain amount of intelligence.
No Pinhead,They would disagree with YOUR opinion and that of Q.
I believe they would cite many experiences and reasons for their faith and claim that you and Q are the delusional ones.
And as you said , the delusional are unaware that they are living a delusion ,so trying to explain the basis of their faith to their Atheist chidren would be a waste of time since they would not be able to grasp the meaning of such...

But I see you think I am lying about something, that you cannot even identify. What's the point? Accusations with zero evidence as usual from the theists.

Your allegation borders on the obscene.
When you refer to "SHE" I assume you are alluding to your uncle's wife.
When and where did she claim that the Priest" added insults to the mix"
That is a figment of your Atheist's mind imagination.
You have claimed that you had no way of knowing what she was thinkig?
Now you are making a different and even more absurd claim in order to defend your irrational and erratic mindset.

I didn't say you were lying, I just questioned your opinion. Mostly because I think it's really ignorant to just haul around calling people things like "liars".

Did the wife say she was insulted?

I wouldn't know either !!

Does prayer help us resist temptation? Talking to God boosts self-control and emotional stability, claims study
People turn to prayer 'as a coping response to the high demands in life' and are rewarded with an increased ability to resist temptation
Previous findings have shown that when people try to control their emotions, the risk of aggressive outbursts and binge drinking rises

Praying helps people stay in control of their emotions and behaviour, according to a new study.
People turn to prayer 'as a coping response to the high demands in life' and are rewarded with increased strength and ability to resist temptation, researchers said.
Previous findings have shown that when people try hard to control their emotions and thoughts, the risk of aggressive outbursts and binge drinking or eating rises....

If your parents concluded god is a myth, would you say they were in a delusion? Or would you lie in order to preserve some blind honor?
I am not running around complaining about them, I am just trying to have an open and honest discussion. I am sure they will never read any of these posts.
I am not trying to abolish the ten commandments, but it certainly should not be posted in government settings as if they were law, as they are not even close. In fact they are against freedom of religion.

Your statement makes no sense. How can you claim we are delusional if you do not understand what it is?

I am not sure you realize I am agreeing that they would claim we are in a delusion. We think they are. But of course none of it really means much, so why did you whine about it for so long? It is but an opinion. It is evidence of nothing.

Asking the question about if she requested the service makes no sense either. It is irrelevant. No, I cannot know what she thought of the comment I found highly insulting. And none of us will know, because no one is going to ask her. It is over and nothing can be done except have a conversation about it. But you cannot just have a hypothetical conversation about this. Damn you are so tedious.

I found it insulting, you do not. Seems to me you are oblivious to what could be insulting to others of a different belief. How ironic.

You have yet to give a reason why you feel it was not an insulting comment.
You simply give excuses why the priest was allowed to give his insulting point of view. No one is arguing this point. I am well aware a priest can insult anyone he wishes in his church. It does not excuse it though.

Sista said,

Duquettes uncles wife?

You know how that goes...he said, the priest said, they said, she said and blah blah and blah.

And sometimes, somewhere in amongst all the twisted and distorted, the REAL truth stands, still.

So you did not use the word "liar" and somewhere in your mind that is not what twisting and distorting an claim is?

But again, why does it even matter if any of this ever even happened? Could we just not have a conversation about what is right or wrong? I found it wrong to say what the priest said. Do you?

Seems you theists are to scared to discuss this and divert with bullshit like this.

I have already answered the question, more than once retard. Now will you ever answer once, why does it matter?

It is my opinion the comment was insulting to her. I cannot know what she felt.

You see, I am not scared to answer questions, why are you?

It is known that humans need some self denial, and the belief in god aids this denial. If one is to hard on himself, it can lead to undue stress.
All humans are in a bit of denial. If we did not ignore what many people thought of us, we would be seriously depressed.
None of this means god is real. And their are other ways to be of a healthy mind. Not that the delusion of god is really all that healthy. It may relieve some stress, but it can cause other problems.

I see the pattern religious propaganda is focusing upon.

Hindu's would likely cite many experiences and reason for their faith.
Muslims would likely cite many experiences and reasons for their faith.
Do you think they are in a delusion?
