Seriously... I find that quite amusing; they are so ignorant of history they don't even know when that got put in.
I had never heard of that one lol. That is so ridiculous. This one is really frustrating to me when people start talking about it like it should be there, and how our founding fathers were christian. It's all in history and they just ignore every bit of it. I would say it drives me insane, but I think it has in the long run drove me saner lol

I know where it was. She brought them from their outside cot to her inside cot. Perhaps a bit more comfortable, but not saintly. She thought that death and suffering was "godly." She did nothing to alleviate their passage. She told them to accept jesus and die. Granted, if this woman truly, truly believed that she was saving their souls and that their suffering was nothing compared to an eternity of bliss, I can't call her completely evil. Cold and slightly inhuman - to be able to watch that kind of suffering and do nothing to stop it, but not evil. I can call her misinformed, dangerous, and woefully stupid, however.

Mugging is a worse crime than not believing. A lifetime in prison is nothing compared to an eternity of torture.

Why would a god be so fickle and vengeful as to condemn his creations for simply not acknowledging his awesomeness? To follow your example, it would be like obama torturing you for not thinking he was the best president ever. Just thinking, not saying. And he can only torture you for a few decades.

I cannot agree with this more!!! When my mom passed that is the only solution that any religious leader could give me for why people die for no good reason at all. I got so sick of hearing everyone say "God has a plan for everything." Generational sin is the biggest crock.*face palm....I mean I could talk about that forever!!

So you know my brother, do you? He is a Pentecostal minister in Montgomery County, and when he attacks it is for just cause.

All I can say is try and enjoy it, he doth wield a buybull and as big a dose of his god's love and forgiveness as a human being can tote.

Meanwhile atheists have strived with all their might to strip all the rights of Christians. That's why I find that you know there is a God. Only a real powerful God can MAKE you uneasy enough that you have to go to extreme efforts to try to abolish God and all of His followers rights.
If you really , really , really thought that God did not exist, you could simply ignore Christians and all of our activities and be just as happy.....but you can't.
We are a daily reminder of how you are wrong and this upsets you.
It's your right to force your religion into public life?

Well, yes... but that's now 250ish years lost, isn't it?
With the implementation of one of the first purely **secular** justifications for a country, the US Constitution.
That was when they lost that right-- only they didn't realize it at the time (the zealots didn't... the founding fathers **certainly** did and deliberately so).
Good catch.
Unfortunately, some of them still don't know.

I've haven't said that I have never lied. What I said was that I saw the immense damage a lie of mine caused, and I have not lied since, and that is true. I will go a step further, and say I have not knowingly lied. For instance should you tell me your car is blue, then blue is the coloer I will say it is should I be asked. Now should I have believe you? Or should I just say, as with all things he lies, so his car is any other color than blue?

Now to another one of your lies ... why do you incessantly add extra decades to my age? When I do reach 80 and I will in a less than 3 decades, I will still be as I am now ... honest, outspoken and atheist. Hopefully you will mature to the point that you will be able to claim the same.

From perfect and flawless, whatever you think of me, I just wish you could think the same of yourself.
Stop lying.

Regardless we all are entitled to our own reactions to a post. My own pet peeves are the liars. I will out them, again and again, as you well know, don't you liar?.
Again lying at its best.

I don't like it myself. But I think there are bigger battles.

I'll let the "in god we trust" continue as a kind of mockery.

I also find it amusing that the communist jesus of the bible was pretty much against ownership. And yet, these morons put that saying on "filthy lucre"... heh.

The irony is quite amusing to me.

Eventually, as religion continues to wane, these will be put away like other childish fairy tales.

A most excellent analogy, pointing out the fact that the god they believe in acts like a 2 year old tyrant.
