You would be quite happy in Russia: they are currently on a program of persecuting homosexuals. Killing them, even.

You'd love it.

It is so Jesus of you.

Now, I have let at least 24 hours pass, and again, I have read your post(above), and the best word to describe it is "obtuse". You may have had something to say in that word salad, but it didn't coalesce into an actual translatable thought.

Aww, after all this time, you are still insecure about something as insignificant as mine or anyone else's appearance. Yeah, I know you saw my photo, big deal. Grow up, get over it. That my looks are considered to be "attractive" is meaningless, and it has no relationship to the fact that I have a brain.

Wow, big words from Reasonable Man. Impress.
Sound much like Intellectual Drunk Dude. IDD
fights obtuse-ism with the power of his words.

With Reasonable Man's logic and Intellectual Drunk
Dude's expressiveness, you can conquer the world
( for good of course ).

well when I guess atheist are so few in number that they have to have group meetings to make them feel bigger. I just don't know what they could possibly be talking about. Do you have guest speakers proclaiming that all the 10 commandment monuments must be destroyed? Do you have a prechristmas meeting in an attempt to organize your antimanger campaigns? Daily ACLU devotionals?

I've been an atheist fro well over 40 years, and I've never attended, or even been aware of, regular 'atheist meetings'. I am aware of the occasional convention, but regular meetings, no. Do tell, where one finds listings of such meetings?

They gather in fields and burn Christians at
the stake on piles of bibles. And eat children.
Then comes the oral sex.

I'm sure you'll relate that to your friends as
'Gospel' truth now. Happy dreams too.

You aren't going around bashing book clubs too are ya? I used to go to a church that held what they called cell meetings....it was basically a more relaxed version of Sunday school or Wednesday night church, every day of the week. If they can get together and talk about nothing, why can't we?!?! Lol....I think we have a right to bitch.
