Which Atheists?

If you are what you say, then you don't make me angry.

I believe in God, you don't.
Whats the big deal?
Its upto you what you want to believe, upto me what I want to believe.
And before anyone goes off on one, I'm a secularist also, and I don't go to church etc because I think organised religion is wrong, and in most cases is a money racket.

Nope.
I'm just pointing out the consequences of your ugly religion.
Seeing as how you don't seem to be aware of such things as consequences...

As for ugly cult's rules? You clearly fail to follow 99% of them...
LOL. Are you trying to insult me with the word cult?

Who gives a fck? Even if we did guess correctly the chump's church out of the 64,000 different Christian religions he would say we were wrong.
He is a garden variety christhole.

Yep. They are all, at the bottom of the analysis-chain, the same.

It's a money-making con of the best variety: ALL the major props are 100% imaginary!

The initial investment can literally be $0.

You can't get a better con than that.

Angry? Because atheists are being treated as 2nd-class people by True Believers™.

Because True Believers™ get a free ride on the backs of ALL tax-payers with their tax-free churches

Because True Believers™ keep passing hate-laws based on their ugly cults, such as anti-abortion, anti-gay, pro-religious BS.

Because True Believers™ keep electing IDIOTS to Washington, based on the religious LIES the idiots tell; and then those same IDIOTS turn around and cater to the top 1% ONLY.

Because True Believers™ keep trying to get their RELIGION (creationism, etc) taught in public schools, polluting the minds of the innocent.

There's more, but that's a pretty good summary.

It IS an insult-- too bad you don't have the wits to comprehend it.

But ALL religion is a cult, so I can see how you'd be confused.

I see you worship your favorite god, Satan.

You also give this "satan" character far more power than your god has: your satan can usurp free will at a whim...

LOL!

I swear man if I didn't have the strong secular morals that I have, with my bible and religious knowledge I could easily start up a church or even a new religion and make a fortune scamming rubes into thinking I had the path to heaven.

Yes all religions are cults. Cult and Religion are interchangeable words.

Not like atheist and agnostic that are NOT interchangeable.

"

ATHEISM IS A RELIGION as deemed by the courts.

The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that ATHEISM IS A RELIGION. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school. Currently, public schools are often unwittingly promoting atheism through a dogmatic and uncritical teaching of materialistic theories of origins."

Atheism = Cult
