On My Mind:
politics as an alternative to war, the problem with democracies is that you get EXACTLY what you vote for...
Yes, he is for democracy, you proved that yourself in this very post.

There are atheists, there are non-deists such as buddhists and jains.
And then there are Topix atheists which quite frankly consist of the scum of society.
Quite a jump... There are Buddhists and Jains.. Then topix atheists.
I see the same few names posting in most of the forums who are atheists... Same with the Christians.
They represent an awfully small small percentage of atheists and Christians.
Calling them the scum of society? You don't see hate in this comment?

Look at the Topix atheists, we have a pornographer/sex tourist, a pedophile and frankfurt school marxist, a cross dresser posing as a woman, a promiscuous coalburner, a compulsive liar with a Jesus complex, and a self appointed snitch who has political motivations.
Wow.
Ad hominem:
1: appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect
2: marked by or being an attack on an opponent's character rather than by an answer to the contentions made

Why?
The dropkicks have the same, do you really want to follow them?
I won't say I don't think they go to far. I think personal insults and bigotry is wrong when it comes from a Christian or an atheist or anyone.

I believe I had the equal sign up first. I am not following them with a picture. I put it up during the Supreme Court case with the gay marriage/ gay rights issue. It is a symbol for equality.

Siro ... I don't like the way you act and I am bothered you can't see how angry and hateful you are being. However, I do not assume you are this mean in person and I am not going to make insulting assumptions about your personal life. I may however become sarcastic with you. Because I don't think you are stupid... Just ignorant.

That's a spam.

You gave me exactly the same answer (completely out of topic as well) on another thread.

You are just a spammer !!!

Bob, a spammer? I don't think so. It seems to me like a lot of believers on here don't get along well with us non-believers. I for one try to call peace and get along well with others who differ from me.

Maybe I'm just being a fool by being a mediator. But I know that conflict is not the answer, and that co-existence can come to pass. Perhaps I'm too idealistic for my own good. Food for thought, huh?

I'd be delighted to let bygones be bygones.

But.

I won't sit still for rampant abuse, such as being told I'm lower than dirt and deserving of infinite torture at the hands of their myth.

Not even the worst of the worst human deserves limited torture--let alone infinite.

So I remind them of their hypocrisy and that they are just a hate-cult.

George Orwell would have recognized them: the Ministry of Love.

No I don't want religion to be abolished. It is already fading away and the believers know it. I am content to let time take it's course.

No reason to enforce atheism, reason leads the more intelligent naturally to it.

I like every atheist I have even known strive for equal rights and democracy.

I do not sell dirty pictures, sorry you are wrong in every count.

You need a totalitarian state for that to happen and yes you approve of such a thing.
You are nothing but a punk who sells dirty pictures.

True enough. Some believers on here are nothing more than trolls who have no respect for others who have different opinions or beliefs....but some have been the nicest people I have ever known.

Some of the kindest people in my life have been religious.
