That was not a group of Atheists in the school district lawsuit. It was a Humanist legal group. There are religious Humanists, you know, Witless.
Big deal, who cares?

It doesn't matter. It was never a right anyway. You do know what a right is, don't you?
Do you realize the others were discussing religious based laws (as in what's crumbling)? You went from stating atheists were suing to get religion out of public places to claiming you were losing your civil right to practice a religion of your choice.

You began by discussing laws, merged in rights, argued some, got blown down, and then above claim it was a never a right anyway?

I don't have a mega church. We seat about two hundred.
My pastor makes about 30K a year. Probably a little high but he gives away much of it to needy parishoners. Maybe churches , religious schools, colleges, hospitals and homeless shelters should be taxed. Maybe religious charities, schools and hospitals should be supported by Catholics and be only for Catholics. Everyone else can go to what's left and pay for it.
All NPOs should have the exact same tax status, including churches and religious organizations and programs, etc.. End of story, as you love to say. As for your personal story....Well, my dear, you could be telling the truth or you could be a lying. However, since you and your slimy boyfriend, whoreships realty ( really, Ink? yuck) have chosen to share BS stories about me and to not believe the one thing I reveal of my life, why the hell should I do anything different for you? I mean, it's cool, it's what happens on Topix. I don't care so why should you, right? You get what you give, pseftiko prosopo.

Given that your claim was about Atheist groups, and THAT was the only example of an actual lawsuit you came up with, it IS a big deal. YOU were wrong.

She wasn't talking about civil rights, you know. She was talking about the priviledge that Christianity has enjoyed previously, which is should not have had in the first place.
Not only Christianity. Now that you have changed her words to try to make some sense of her claim, we can address the 'priviledge' without her.

Since churches have no right to tax exemption and if they are now taxed they haven't really lost anything.
They have only been getting away with a scam. Tax the churches, religious schools and universities, hospitals and shelters and food kitchen. You still won't have any effect on faith in God or change any minds.

I would rather talk about taxes and who should pay them. Should schools, hospitals government buildings, state parks? I hope you say yes because I'm tired of supporting them.

God , you're really, really dense. Read the damn posts. How do you breathe, without a coach? Listen, babe, your religious rights are and will always be intact. I will fight for that, silly, as all Americans will. Religion, however, will not remain privileged and pristinely tax-exempt forever, as your own examples show. Jesus H. Christ, take a nap, please.

I said they were and you said

"Such as?" as in disbelief. If you thought they were, you would have agreed instead of the challenge, "such as?"

You said;
"Are YOU serious? Rights based purely on religion are dwindling away and a damn good thing."

Care to tell me what those rights are and how have you benefitted from the loss?

I think it is probably hard to fact the fact that nothing you say, do, wish, cry for, pray for, or think, has EVER prevented one single woman from doing what she sees fit, when she becomes pregnant. I think that gets under your hide like a hot needle. Poor thing.

I know...couldn't POSSIBLY happen in a Christian nation....blah blah blah....

Good, o sanctimonious one, so you agree. Religious organizations should be taxed. Why didn't you just admit it? Holy Mother, you love to bitch and nag, do you? Whew, keep the kids away from Nana Ink!

Um, hello, you said religious practices were being challenged in court, and I said "Such as?" in an invitation to post them.

Which you did.

I then gave my opinion on them.

I *never* said "Atheists aren't suing over religion."

But of course, you already knew that...you just didn't want to address the other points, so you latched on to that one for three posts, and got repeatedly owned.

Try again?

Don't understand the need to pick apart each sentence. I guess it is important to you. We just disagree.

I never said they shouldn't be. You just don't listen. You think you know what Christians are going to say. Sure tax them and they should be just for their particular religion.

I like to address individual points individually.

So sue me.

If we 'just disagree', why is it that you keep asking/addressing the same things over and over and over again, and claiming not to be answered when you simply continue not to like the responses?

Next...
