I don't think so. An atheist will only believe anything as far as reason and evidence jutify the belief.

Sometimes the prejudice seems to extend to anyone not a co-religionist (i.e the same sect).

I helps to keep religion out of politics, the law, education, science and morality; and to debate issues on their merits alone.

All religions are based upon false premises - like Peter being the first Pope. But all of these religions give honor to a righteous power higher than themselves - even this secular nation that claims to have a separation of church and state. You deny that righteous power - and as such are anti-righteous. Nihilists claim that the state should be without divine guidance and should be at the whim of any perversion that comes along. Look what happened to Nazi Germany that came under the domination of godless freaks. The same thing is happening to the USA where freaks are claiming they are normal and have put a fellow freak in the White House with a tattooed freak populace in baggy pants and on food stamps and welfare thinking all is normal. And with their intellectual leaders being basketball and football mercenaries/stars.

"Holder to brief black pastors on campaign 2012"
(No mention of white pastors)

"Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election -- which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama's campaign.

"We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we're going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.

"In fact, we're going to have the IRS administrator there, we're going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we're going to have the lawyers' organization from around the country, the ACLU -- all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do," he noted....."

I checked a few less biased sources on this, and apparently, the purpose is to protect these churches' tax-exempt statuses, which would be at risk if they violated the IRS prohibition of electioneering. Quite specifically, the pastors cannot endorse a candidate or party while acting in an official capacity. Loss of the 501(c)(3) tax status would be a heavy blow to most churches, especially since most localities would rescind their property tax exemptions as well.

As a result of these conferences, few, if any black churches will endorse Obama or the Democratic party.

White churches may have had more experience in dealing with 501(C)(3) issues or fewer problems historically. I can certainly see how Rep. Cleaver would be sensitive to the situation, being a Methodist pastor himself. It is not unusual for government agencies to provide education in order to ensure compliance with their regulations. I think you may be jumping a shadows here.

No, the black/radical government is out trying to solidify political support for Obama. And btw in case you missed it -



Trump slaps CNN: Report Obama birth fraud!
Blames network's dismal ratings on refusal to expose eligibility scandal



Billionaire businessman Donald Trump smacked CNN today, telling lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer the network would improve its dismal viewer ratings if it would only report the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president “accurately.”

“Obama does not like the issue of where he was born…” he told Blitzer in the interview.“There’s something that bothers Obama very much. I will tell you: It’s not an issue that he likes talking about, so what he does is use reverse psychology on people like you … He does not like that issue because it’s hitting very close to home. You know it, and he knows it – but you don’t report it accurately.”

The heated exchange between Blitzer and Trump can be seen here.

Well said. They are about out of time too. That explains their hatred. It is wonderful to see how upset, mad, irritated, hopeless, and bitter atheists are......it proves how wrong they are.

Atheism is the 'at fault' state. You were born to make a decision to obey God, not to make a decision if He exists or not. You know perfectly well He exists, but your mental slack keeps yanking you into deeper levels of hatred that have warped your reality perception.

Keep showing us hatred, you atheist bigot. We want to see you hang yourself behind your curtain called atheism. When you wake up, you'lll realize what an idiot you are.

Typical relig-o-tard, wishful thinking. Look how mad the little godbot gets when he is faced with reality. LOL!!!!

Do you have any evidence that this god of yours is real????

NOPE, you don't.

You were born an atheist, and were brainwashed into believeing. Now you are so pants-pissing scared of death, that you discard logic and reason to cling to your pathetic hope that there is a god.
If you really believe there is a god, and you are looking forward to being with your myth forever, what is keeping you from sticking a gun in your mouth to be with your god? I'll tell you what... You know it's just a bunch of made-up stories, and deep down inside, you don't have even the tiniest bit of real evidence.
Does it get any more childish and pathetic? No, it doesn't. Grow up little one. Your god story is nothing but a myth. Just like all the other myths throughout history. But you already know that don't you? LOL!!!

Yup, every scripture for every religion that has ever been written down. LOL!!! Do you think yours is something new? LOL!! Not even close!! When scripture is vauge and undefined, it's easy to imagine it is being fulfilled. That's how ALL religious "scripture" is written.

Ethics? Christian ethics? The slave owning, murdering, rapeing, incestous, child murdering ethics of the bible god???? LOL!! Let's hope not.
