The Examiner seems a bit out of date.
I mean, they're still using "AD" instead of "CE."

<quoted text>What horror? OH YEA, you're talking about the atrocities led on by the atheists of the day that were talked about in the many true stories of the scriptures. Yes, that's right. The Bible does explain the bad things that happened to men/women/children/and mankind in general as a result of the rebellion acted out by the likes of you.

No, I don't get upset at all since warnings were given prior to the punishment. Now if the warnings had not been given, then you would have something to back up your claim....but you don't.
You enjoy lying, don't you?

I'm talking about killing people for working on the Sabbath, forcing women to marry their rapists, stoning children to death.

Atheism = lack of belief in god. Please underline the part where the murder comes in.

That's right you're lying again - its what you creationists do best.

Anything other than get yourself some proper morals.

You believe jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs and that fossils aren't real.

And you say we have a fantasy problem? The mental illness goes deeper than we first thought.

Tell me, what did athiests do to receive the punishment of having to deal with you in this forum?

How many people in the area adhere to the Ten Commandments? Thou shalt not steal.(Living on government property without paying, taking what does not belong to you and for which you did not work.) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods, or wife or ANYTHING?(Taking anything that belongs to someone else, including taxpayers.) Thou shall not commit adultery?(Don't have a secret relationship with someone outside of your marriage!) Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor?(Don't lie or testify, falsely.) Keep the Sabbath day holy?(Saturday was their Sabbath; no work and a time to help or be with community.) You shall not have other Gods before me (honoring alcohol, gambling, other drugs, steroids or worship anything as more important than God.) Thou shall not kill. Of course, there are more rules...but, who in the area adheres to the Ten Commandments? Why take your taxpayer hard-earned money and spend it on placing religious items on government property? Place it on your own property, pray to yourself all day long; and for God sakes - start living the Ten Commandments.

I'm an atheist and I adhere to more of the commandments than many religious people do.

FDR D-Day Prayer To Be Added To D.C. World War II Memorial
September 2014
People & Events

In a virtually unprecedented move, the U.S. National Park Service will soon be forced to add a prayer plaque to the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., thanks to recent congressional action.

On June 30, President Barack Obama signed the “World War II Memorial Prayer Act,” which will add an invocation given by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on June 6, 1944, to the memorial.

The D-Day invocation reads, in part,“And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.”

Some conservative members of Congress were obsessed with getting the prayer added to the memorial. The bill was ignored for a few years, but this time their luck changed. The U.S. Senate approved the measure by unanimous consent, and it was pushed through the U.S. House of Representatives by a 370-12 vote. Obama later signed it into law.

AU argued that adding a prayer to the monument is disrespectful to veterans who do not believe in the Judeo-Christian God and pointed out that altering a memorial more than 10 years after its dedication is nearly unprecedented.

As Americans United Legislative Director Maggie Garrett noted in Senate testimony submitted last year, adding a prayer to the WWII Memorial is not the same as when Congress decided to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial or when former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole was honored with a plaque at the WWII Memorial.

“Neither the King nor the Dole plaque changed the content and message of the Memorial to which they were added: they did not alter, remove, or add language, images, or emblems relating to the honoring of President Lincoln or World War II Veterans,” Garrett said.“Neither second guessed the designers, historians, architects, or public input regarding the best way to honor Lincoln or veterans at the memorials. Instead, they left the memorials intact.”

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who sponsored the prayer bill along with U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), didn’t see it that way.

“[M]y bill will immortalize this extraordinary prayer on the World War II Memorial so it becomes a permanent reminder of the sacrifice of not just those who fought in World War II, but also of the men and women who fight for us today and all those who lay down their lives for the cause of liberty,” Portman said in a statement.

So funny that you cannot even bear to read Atheists posts, so you post religious spam on top whenever you get the chance.

Shows how open and honest your cult really is when asked to prove its ignorant claims.

Can't answer my question directly because you are a paid liar for the Discovery Institute.

That's how your cult has always worked, nobody willingly trolls for you, they have to be paid to make a fool of themselves.
