Good. At least you agree that sexual orientation is irrelevant when it comes to criminal behavior.
I never said it wasn't. My point was about how people use religion to show it's violence when as you agreed with the angry atheist, it's the person.

The interesting side is of same sex marriage are the tax consequences. They are now allowed to filed amended tax returns.

TRue, they do have a long history of hate for people that don't believe their belief in nothing. For people that say they believe in nothing, it's amazing how interested they are in people that do believe in a Higher Power.

That's true because as a believer, I
never really think of Atheists,one way
or another,to each his/her own...

Getting into a debate on religion,
with an Atheist is like bumping your
head on the wall! that's why I keep
my religious beliefs to myself...

Atheists don't believe in "nothing". And they certainly don't say they believe in "nothing". They simply don't believe in God.

correction.. not god, any gods

We donít target any specific god, out of millions of gods, or families of gods or other manifestations man has made up, we donít believe in the existence of any of them.

It isnít only Christianity, its Islam, or volcano worship, or historical deities in the past, or new ones presented by the new religions. There are currently several billions of different gods that are believed in today, we donít believe in any of them, nor do we put one above any other.

Atheists also have a tendency to laugh at Astrology, Numerology, palm reading, etc

Actually, Same-sex-marriage is not a sin!. Sex between married people is overlooked by God. God pays no attention to the sex ( no matter how deviant ) committed between married people, for example, married heterosexuals all time have anal and oral sex and I don't see how homosexuality differes from this!!!.

Religion has been the cause of more murder and destruction throughout history than any other cause.

Followed by Bigotry ( often in conjunction with religion )

Followed by geographical nationalism ( often in conjunction with religion and bigotry )

The 3 plagues of mankind

There is a reason people are less and less tolerant of any of the three

It takes the same amount of faith to be sure there is no God as it does to be sure there is a God. Big D is among the very faithful. Me, not so much.

Wrong, you have a faith, I do not

I donít think there are any gods, but that is a mere belief, nothing special.

There are a lot of things I merely believe, but I would never put a belief over facts

That is not a religion, putting beliefs in front of actual facts is a religion.

Is your number 9 fired with wood, coal or fuel oil, does it have an afterburner?
