Now kindly don't mistake this as an invitation to open a dialogue. Your "troll meter" ranking is far too high for me to be interested..........or care.
Scram.
Clearly I touched a nerve.

I'll risk your troll meter since you ranked a 10 on the bigot/idiot meter...

I'll go when I decide.

We have a duty to speak up about the church and on behalf of life without religion. The more we do, the more that other unbelievers will do the same, and the more that people who are simply conforming to group pressure will feel comfortable living without religion.
Our immediate goal has to be to disempower it politically and socially in order to get it out of the lives of unbelievers. That means getting it onto the tax rolls, getting its god off the currency and out of the pledge, and removing its influence from the legislatures and laws books, and from the school boards and classrooms.
The next goal should be to protect children from the church.
Children? I always find that your most valid point.

Unlike some we could name.
I disagree. He's a vicious stalker nut with serious penis envy issues.

He lives in Melbourne and is a demented stalker in the rw.

Ask Aggro or Ade. Lol.

He's not still here is he?

You are too kind. It is called 1700 years of bullsh!t.
I've always wondered how U calculate that figure, Ben?

Do you base it on Constantine and his state religion of Xianity in the 4C? That's 1700 years ago.

Or do you base it on what supposedly happened in the 1C? It then stretched on through the Dark Ages and all that. The power of state religion was broken, beginning in the 18C with the Enlightenment.

No. Intelligent humour does that to me.

You're probably confused because people only laugh at you when they are most high.

I openly admit my attitude is mockery. Well deserved mockery for ignorant arrogance.
.. for me, mocking is annoying, obnoxious and nasty. It's a hint that the individual may be insecure and small, a person who belittles others to make himself feel better. How does it empower you ??..

.. dry humor is fun but not at the expense and humiliation of others ..

The total body count for the ninety years between 1917 and 2007 is approximately 148 million dead at the hands of fifty-two atheists, three times more than all the human beings killed by war, civil war, and individual crime in the entire twentieth century combined.
Nobody has ever killed for atheism.

5. Why Gay Couples Divorce
Many gay couples who married shortly after same sex marriage was legalized in their country waited years for their chance. Such couples might be thought to have a higher than usual level of commitment and stability. Yet gay and lesbian couples were divorcing just months after they married – or less.
Gay couples divorce for many reasons. Gay couples experience strong cultural pressures. Gay couples are also more likely to be two-income families with no children, which in the straight population have a higher risk of divorce. One of the less-thought-of reasons for gay marriage is to ensure that a couple in the process of break-up can access divorce courts.
As gay marriage is a relatively recent phenomenon, the gay divorce rate will not stabilize for a long time. Gay couples can only now access the streamlined legal processes that marriage and divorce provides. A study showed that the gay divorce rate for Dutch lesbian couples was higher than gay male couples, although the reason wasn't clear. Data from Nordic countries, where gay civil unions have been legal for more than a decade, also showed a slightly higher divorce rate for lesbians.
----------
Well it is an interesting social experiment and who would have anticipated the high divorce rate among lesbian couples? According to the article above children have a stabilizing influence on OSMs overall. Lesbo couples don't necessarily have that. Rosie O'Donnell divorced with adopted children.

.. you seem determined to prove something. Again, the rich and famous divorce at a higher rate. Gays and lesbians will probably divorce at the same rate as heterosexuals. Do you throw mud because you enjoy it ??..

Yes. I have a private savings account that I direct deposit what was my health insurance bill into it every payday. I started that several years ago so I've got a pretty hefty amount in there. The way I see it, I'd rather save that money towards me than waste it to the insurance company.
I don't need the damned gub'ment saving my money for me.
My leg cost 125,000 dollars.

Get insurance.

Just sayin.
