She certainly suffers that delusion. Although, having recently lost her job, we've kind of reverted to traditional mode ... I actually got a hot breakfast this morning!

Don't you mean your "significant other"?
All Atheists are not Gay, nor are all Gay people Atheists. People have an innate right to "pursue happiness" in whatever fashion suits their fancy. That is actually a 'philosophy' far more difficult to grasp than Naturalism (or whatever catchy term you use to express the lack of a supernatural component). You should work on that.

ha good one hill. Never said all gay people were atheists, but so what is. So child molesters have the right to pursue happiness with their sick sexual preference?

You haven't stated your preferred denomination.
Wouldn't it depend on whether you are Catholic, Mormon or Jehovah's Witness?

LOL! I've never divulged my sex. race or sexual orientation on any forum. It allows me to judge what type of person is trying to judge me.

Congratulations! Your twisted mind qualified you for scumbag, and you confirm that almost every time you post.

And to answer your question; No YOU should not.

Wow! Didn't take you long to jump on the Wacky Wagon!! Children are protected by instinct first, then Man's Laws and finally (and poorly) by some of your ancient texts. Kind of depends upon what the Voices-in-Your-Head are whispering.

You clearly worship upon the Altar of Ignorance. No "true atheist" would found a Church of any kind, much less one dedicated to a ridiculous, mythical being. Particularly one who sprang from the same imaginations that crafted the Abrahamic religions.
I always enjoy reading your post cause they tend to be funny.

I wouldn't waste too much thought on it now. Satan is as stupid a concept as a Messiah or a "Supreme Being" and none are worthy of rational world view.
Exactly. The idea of some ghoulish autocrat, lording over the underworld, while secretly going into the minds of billions of people to convince them to do the most trivial of sins is completely ludicrous.
I had one lady tell me that Satan was the who made her lose a document that she had naming her as her father's caretaker.
I wonder how the devil must be able to administer hell and at the same time intervene in our private lives?
To be fair to Satan, we don''t have his side of the story. For such an hated enemy, he only appears a few times in the bible.

Quite right! At moments of 'weakness', my wife reveals how my not becoming Catholic has essentially ruined her life. Details like the (non)existence of "Supreme Beings" doesn't really seem to matter.
How would it ruin her life?

LOL! Sorry my life is not that interesting. But I'll bet you could talk your wife into it, after all she is married to you. But you shouldn't suggest the Jr. High Girls you fawn over.

Speak for yourself! Although, without a multi-page photo spread it might be difficult.

The more you think about it ... the more ridiculous it becomes. Humanity just isn't ready to move out of the Dark Ages. We're frightened children, clutching at our Security Blankets and whimpering in the dark. I'd like to think we were simply born in the wrong time, that a brighter, more enlightened Future looms ahead, that we are the vanguard of some new and improved Humanity Prime. Nope. Conversations with the 'bots give no cause for such optimism. It's gonna be hundreds, maybe thousands of years before we get this crapola out of our systems at the current rate. Some global catastrophe will probably reset us back to Square One before we get there. Hell ... the bots are actively and daily straining and praying for The End Times so they can meet Jesus while their corporeal bodies are intact, lacking any REAL faith in an afterlife. Self-fulfilling prophecies are the only ones that are known to 'come true'. We're never going to give ourselves a chance to blossom into anything 'better' than we are right now.
