My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Inglorious end to a great career in movies
Eastwood is rather old, and may have made a mistake.

He did delay the speech for ten minutes and encouraged the audience to switch to the food channel :-)

"chip mouthed slag" - spoke like a true creationist. You make your cult more and more appealing every day.

Cos we'll all become creationists if you call us "chip mouthed slags, right?"

The idea is to keep a$$s from joining our cult. Seems to be working so far.

Keep up the good work you all we sure don't need these pricks in heaven. Better to sit back on a nice comfortable cloud and toast marsh mellows.

No sane person wants to join your cult.

All anyone needs to know about the cult 'members' can be gleaned from their Topix posts.

Excellent post! Most people who post about religion, have never read or understood the man invented nonsense called religion. Sadly, brainwashing is a reality. THINKING is beyond religious types. But they do get comfort from the trappings and theatrical garb. What price intelligence???

Hmmm?

One wonders WHY they bother?

One would imagine their 'faith' would be more secure than to bother with those that find them foolish. Why not spend this time in church where like minded sheep will bleat along in unison with every utterance.

There shall be ZERO converts to their delusions and fantasies.
All we can do is enjoy their self imposed ignorance - displayed for our amusement.

They bother, because we atheists are waking up to the fact that we DO have rights in this most secular of countries.

And we are organizing and demanding those constitution-given rights.

And they hate that.

They also hate the fact that most U.S. atheists were at one time, True Believers™ too-- but we escaped from the mind-slavery that is religion.

The fact that a person CAN escape really gets their panties in a twist.

It proves there is nothing holding people in the chains of faith--apart from their own willingness to remain locked up.

And they hate that most of all.

And more we are turning on the light whereas religion has kept them in the dark. Even believers reap the rewards we secular humanists fight for. While many may not call themselves atheists the fact is people are slipping away from the church and in doing so the believers power fades. That is why they hate us. We are progressing humanity past them. It's a slow process but interesting enough we will at some point in the future move past the need to even have the term atheist as so few people will believe.

This is happening and they know it.

It is happening-- and those that realize it, really hate it.

I suspect that most know... especially the ones that scream the loudest, and show the most hate.

You know... the godbots herein.

LOL!

Yes-- you prove once more you are just another #sshole.

True to your hate-cult: Genuine Christianity™

Your hate-cult makes people into azzholes.

And you are a FINE example.

Thanks for playing!
