Don't let atheists grow in influence

There are 215 comments on the This Is Staffordshire story from Oct 11, 2013, titled Don't let atheists grow in influence. In it, This Is Staffordshire reports that:

Why, when people are arguing that we should not 'bow to religion', are we creating new rules for another religion that of atheism? The definition of a religion or faith is a belief in the existence or non-existence of God in the absolute absence of corroborative scientific evidence.

Do you believe in stoning women to death for adultery? Because that is apart of your Torah

Where is your proof that the Messiah is a woman?
If god was a woman, than shouldn't you be referring to her as goddess?
Why the torah refer to god in Masculine tones?
Why the Torah tell wives to submit to husbands?
Why do many Jewish men make their wives go to the back of the bus?

Let atheism compete in the marketplace of ideas!

Seem no need for atheism to attack faith in their attempt to prove their philosophic viewpoint.

Cults defend themselves by attacking others.

Not to forget the strength difference between men and women. Unfortunately too many male criminals like to use that difference to do bad things to their female victims, men like Gary Ridgeway

You would have to believe that a female god deliberately created men stronger than women, and then gave me higher testosterone and sex drive so that the stronger gender would have both the power and motive to abuse the weaker one.

Pointing out the flaws in logic and unwarranted unsupported assumptions, express and implied, in another viewpoint *is* competing in the marketplace of ideas. If I say there was once nothing, then there was something, therefore an invisible pink unicorn magic'd the something into existence, there's plenty wrong with my logic, and it is perfectly legitimate for those who do not share the belief to point out those logical errors.

Only those who know their logic is faulty try to cloak their viewpoint in immunity from scrutiny.

Is there some creationist doctrine that forbids fundies from using the reply button? Is there an International Brotherhood of Trolls union rule to that effect?

^Has been noted that the Evangelical Atheist-bot is often a troll who has become extremely vocal about their atheism and is trying to convince others of their point of view.

Often they are regarded as an embarrassment by fellow atheists.

Some Evangelical Atheists seek relief and vindication by lobbying to pass laws that will make it difficult for religious people to voice their opinions in the public square.

I think god(s) are ridiculous enough without making the entity gender-specific as do Abrahamic faiths.(Talk about 'people will believe anything'!:-)

Some people seem unconscious of the fact that crime and especially violent crime is still mostly a male problem, for instance Wiki quote, "Males committed the vast majority of homicides in the United States at that time, representing 90% of the total number of offenders" unquote.

Apparently, about 90% of violent crime is committed by men and frequently against women or the less aggressive or able to defend themselves. Why crime is predominantly a male problem is an interesting and complicated topic (and off-topic :-)

Where have you been? There has been Christian advertisements for decades. No Atheist I have ever heard of said stop it. Instead, the Atheists started posting billboards as well. Guess who tries to shut them down? That's right, Christians. They threaten billboard companies, have protests and vandalize these signs? So who is trying to make it more difficult for who?

Now, if you are talking about publically funded spaces, that's a different story. Christians have been breaking constitutional law for over a century, and now that they get challenged, and loose, they become whiny little bitches.

There is a lot of scripture that proves God is a woman. Here's a couple: Jeremiah 33:15-18 "...this is the name wherewith she shall be called, the Lord or righteousness..." David and the Levites will not want a man on the throne or to offer sacrifice. The Messiah will be a lamb for a sin offering. Isaiah 53:7, 10. This must be female. Leviticus 4:32. "But cursed be the deceiver, which has in his flock a male, and vows and sacrifices unto the Lord a corrupt thing..." Malachi 1:14. In ancient times, people were stoned to death for willfully violating a commandment. The Christian seven deadly sins are not sins at all. I'm talking about a modern, true, non christian list.

Then you don't follow the directives in your own religion. Your book says women are to keep silent in church. But I think all Christians cherry pick anyway, you can read anything into the NT that you want it to say. That's why there are so many different Christian denominations.
