Dec 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Houston Press

It's a warm fall morning near the Texas State Capitol's south steps, and there's a fight brewing.

They know their days are numbered man. That's the only reason they go after us so much. Of we really weren't causing them to bleed membership numbers they wouldn't bother wasting one second on us let alone write books, create websites, DVDs and recruit believers to go after us. The debate only helps us because we point out they have no proof not a shred a evidence.

And they know it.

Yes-- churches are dying in a big way here in Tulsa too.

Each day, I drive past abandoned church property. And even more, I see church property in serious need of major repair--but the congregation is clearly too poor to afford such, as they cling to a dying church.

Religion is on the wane; knowledge is on the rise-- the internet is to blame, I think.

The internet has allowed the real lies of True Believers™ to be exposed for all to see, and has allowed people with questions to find the answers they ask.

Real answers, not the "goddidit" lie so frequently told for so long.

It's a beautiful thing.

The word is accept not except.

And you wonder why you are losing the debate so badly?

Nobody wants to stop you from believing in your silly delusion. Just don't try to force your religion, god or his so called rules upon others.

Funny you say the same thing each day as if it was original.

As many UK churches are old stone buildings, they make beautiful pubs when their congregations die of old age.
Here's a converted church hall I used to frequent when I lived in Banbury (of Banbury Cross fame)

<quoted text>
I always wanted to live in a converted church myself.

I would find it quite amusing. And I'd love the open space that used to be the "sanctuary". It would make an excellent place to fly radio-control helicopters & airplanes.

I'd strip out all the nasty carpet, too-- a nice, hard floor for running radio control vehicles. With maybe some ramps going up to the platform, with a nice jump somewhere?

The kitchen in these is typically top-notch too: you know how those True Believers™ love to gorge on too much food.

:D

I'd have my pick of bedrooms-- any of the classrooms ought to work for that, quite well.

Yep-- converting a church to non-religious use is a very good idea.

Indeed they do. It scares the shills-in-chief, too-- they'll have to go out and get REAL jobs....

... ones that make them have to work for a living, instead of steal from the poor/ignorant.

If I believed in Karma, I'd say she's a b*tch...

LMAO!

Number of atheists in America is increasing alas the percentage decreasing.

With immigration from Latin America the Roman Church increasing as are fundamentalist protestant churches. Latin American immigrants
have large families and often church centered

Carpet? Carpet? Luxury!

We had 800 year old flagstones if we were lucky.

The majority of churches built in the US are finished with carpeted floors throughout-- even in the kitchens!

I have even been in churches that had gyms, to help the younger set find a reason to come to church-- but, yes-- the gym would have some sort of "special" carpet on the floor too.

Pretty much eliminated playing basketball, in spite of the nets at either end...

;)

No doubt some salesman promised this carpet was... "special".:LMAO:

These people will believe anything...

To me, carpets in a building of worship implies a mosque!

I'm as likely to abuse a pet as you are to use your dead granny's cu*t as a bong.

Oh hang on a minute, let's just stick to what we know: I don't abuse pets.

It's unlikely he had a granny... at least, not one that would acknowledge him as a descendant.
