There’s a lot of wonderful, kind and generous people in the Catholic Church. They would take offense by being considered as Non-Christians. From my view here on topix they believe in God.
We at topix fall into two categories. Believers and non believers (Atheist). Catholics are believers in Christ. I don’t believe in their particular religious doctrine. But I do support the individuals right to believe as they desire.
Freedom of religion is something all of us believers have in common. We embrace our freedoms and oppose those who desire to suppress our right to choose.
I'm sorry, but many believers would prefer to take away freedom of religion in the USA. You can't speak for all of them.

Nor "for" but "about".

I'm speaking about a large portion of American Christians who support certain politicized agendas.

I like to clarify things whenever I get the chance for the possible benefit of anyone who might read it.

I'm watching a mini series called Dune. Have you heard of it? It's science fiction.

Farscape has aliens. It's one of the best.

My favorite franchises are Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek, Stargate, Dune, and Fringe.

Firefly is the highest quality science fiction series out there, as far as I'm concerned.

I recently dl'ed them and watched them .
Because I never knew they were made, I loved them but was a little disappointed. Their budget wasn't like LOTR is the reason.
Which brings me to the statement.....

The Hobbit start Friday! YAY!

No, it wasn't farscape either. That blue girl used to scare me!

I've never heard of firefly or fringe, seen all the others tho.

It had a person who had alien language visions! I think there was a little girl in it with blonde hair.

That could have been the Taken series.

It had Dakota Fanning.

Scify channel has several pretty good mini series.

The Lost Room
Tinman
Alice

I wonder how many hours I've spent staring at a TV screen.

The Supreme Court of the United States is going to take up the case of same sex marriage. What does this have to do with atheism? Apparently a lot since most if not all the topix atheist are liberals. The Supreme Court could swing the pendulum in either direction.
When the Supreme Court rules it’s going to set a precedence. It will become law of the land until the Supreme Court takes it up again in a few years. Something tells me there’s going to be a lot of unhappy campers after their ruling.
*Precedent* Almost, eagle, almost.
