What numbers do you want to talk about atheist or something else Buddhist perhaps?

It seems that Lango carefully cherry picks his "data." First choose the conclusion, then go in search of something to support it. Intellectual dishonesty at its most egregious.
Again what numbers are you looking for?

I quoted atheist numbers not Buddhist.
Or baby numbers. Just people who call themselves atheist. That would be about 2% would wide, backed up by many surveys and over twenty years all its done is gone down.

He spends a lot of time in the 18+ book stores if you know what I mean.

I did not hear about her before reading your post.
"In March 2008, Kern made national headlines when she stated:
Studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it's the death knell of this country. I honestly think it's the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam which I think is a big threat, okay?'Cause what's happening now is they are going after, in schools, two-year olds...And this stuff is deadly, and it's spreading, and it will destroy our young people, it will destroy this nation![7][8]
After receiving attention for the remarks, Kern said "I said nothing that was not true" and refused to apologize.[7][9][10] She received a standing ovation from fellow Republican legislators in a private meeting a few days later.[11] In response to Kern's comments, hundreds of gay and lesbian rights supporters protested at the Oklahoma State Capitol.[12] Over 1500 people later turned out at the Capitol to support her.[13]
Kern claimed to have received death threats that caused her to hire a bodyguard.[14][15] The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation officer who reviewed Kern's emails said, "I wouldn't characterize them as death threats."[16]
Kern authored an op-ed counterpoint piece in the June 24, 2009 issue of the Oklahoma Gazette in which she argued, "Granting marriage status to homosexuals who comprise little more than 3 percent of the population would be like granting all applicants admission to a prestigious college just because a few meet the qualifications. That schools status would fall. Likewise, the status of marriage will fall if same-sex marriage is legalized."[17]
In late June 2009 Kern authored the "Oklahoma Citizens Proclamation for Morality" implicitly blaming gay marriage and President Barack Obama's official acknowledgment of Gay and Lesbian Pride Month (among other things) for the economic crisis which was then ongoing.[18]
During her 2010 re-election campaign, Kern made the sexual orientation and gender of her opponent a topic of her campaign.[19]
In an interview on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, she correlated homosexuality with HIV/AIDS, and reiterated her claim that homosexuality is a greater threat to the United States than terrorism, saying "Its more dangerous, and yes I think that its also more dangerous because it will tear down the moral fiber of this nation."[20]"
"On April 27, 2011, while debating in favor of SJR 15, a proposed constitutional amendment that would eliminate Affirmative Action in Oklahoma, Kern said:
We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and thats tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they dont want to study as hard in school? Ive taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didnt study hard because they said the government would take care of them.[21]
During the same debate, Kern also stated that
Women usually don't want to work as hard as a man... women tend to think a little bit more about their family, wanting to be at home more time, wanting to have a little more leisure time.[22]
On May 2, 2011, The Oklahoma State House of Representatives publicly reprimanded Kern for the comments she made which some people interpreted as unflattering to blacks and women during a debate on affirmative action. Rep. Mike Shelton, D-Oklahoma City, made the motion to reprimand her. A member objected, and the House voted 7617 to reprimand Kern.[23][24]"
Boy is a bytch!
She is one of the ugliest people in politics-- and I don't mean her looks--

-- her ugly is so deep, it pollutes anyone she is near...

But.

She IS a typical ReThuglican....

Oh!

And thanks for your "peanut" on my post.

Obviously you are a FAN of Sally Kerns.

Just as obvious, you hate all gays with as much passion and ugliness as Kerns does.
