In this country if you were hungry or homeless you’re better off seeking a religious based charity. Our church operates a food pantry. It’s not cheap foods either but good quality foods.
Atheist don’t have anything, nothing because like I said as a organized caring group. They don’t participate and they will never participate in any serious organized effort. Oh sure there’s and individual here or there but as a group, not.
Yet in the typical hypocritical fashion the Atheist consistently bash Christians after we spend billions on medical research and healthcare. What they spend as a group is non existent, nill.
You Atheist have no hospitals other than the secular one’s the government provides. And secular is not Atheist as much as you want to try and claim it. As a group you are uncaring, and unconcerned. Your mission is to remove one’s legal right to freedom of religion.
I really don’t know why your forefathers didn’t embrace Stalin. He had the same goals. Bash the heads in of the religious and worship the communist flag.
Do you know what the top largest charities in the world are?

No?

Hint: they are **not** religious.

Here's a second hint: Bill and Melinda Gates (atheists).

Well, it's clearly not the ReThuglican Congress.

They are happy to STRIP the assistance program from COMBAT VETS, in order to fuel their give-to-the-1% mantra.

Actually? There are a large number of purely **secular** charities in the USA.

In fact?

The **best**(that is, the least fraud) are pure secular organizations. Including hospitals.

The best **research** hospitals are **secular** ones too.

I find that interesting.

Apparently, among the Godbesotted?**RESEARCH** is forbidden...

How about the news coming out of Europe about the Costa Concordia?

Isn’t that something?

That’s a typical European operation if I ever saw one. I’m not talking about raising the Concordia. I’m talking about that cool headed Atheist Ship Captain who saved himself over women and children.

I think he was the first one on the life boat. Supposedly he is saying it’s not his fault. About 10 seconds before they hit ground he ordered the helmsmen to turn the ship about. Like they were steering a VW Volkswagen.

Kind of reminds me of the botched drilling BP did in the Gulf of Mexico. This is where they released about 10 Billion Gallons of crude oil.

Back to Concordia, how do I know that Captian Francesco Schettino was an Atheist? Only a freaking Atheist will take a life jacket from a little kid and push everyone to the side so he could get into the life boat.

Don’t make you proud to be a European and an Atheist?

Actually? Freon is completely inert-- there is zero reason to sniff it.
You could get the same effect, from "sniffing" pure nitrogen or helium.
Unless you get the temperature well over 1000 degrees, freon is like wax--- non-reactive.
As for that nice leather smell? Well, yeah-- a lovely leather bound book of Charles Dickens **does** have a nice aroma.
And in contrast to your bible?
People actually **read** Dickens. Because they **wanted** to.
I find that 99.9999% of bible-lovers? Never read the damn thing.
This is likely why they still think it's a "good" book...

It's shocking and fast becoming the latest trend with teen huffing.
Kids are now inhaling freon, the gas found in air conditioning systems -- and sometimes with deadly consequences.

Online there's video after video of teens inhaling the coolant found in air conditioning systems. Freon causes a rapid high that resembles alcohol intoxication.
"Even a single use can result in sudden death," says Dr. Shan Yin of the Cincinnati Children's Hospital. "Parents should be very concerned if they find out their child is using this."

Gail Henry knows the heartbreak. Her 18-year-old son Jacob was found dead next to an air conditioning unit with a bag over his head. He had been huffing freon.
"Don't ever considering doing it because that five seconds of high you get when you do it isn't worth dying over," she says.

Besides loss of consciousness, huffing freon can make your lungs freeze, cause frostbite to your airway, sudden cardiac death, and brain damage.

Some air conditioning service businesses report customers call believing they have a freon leak only to find out someone has been siphoning off the gas, which is easy to do. Many business owners are now putting padlock gates around their units and compressors. A service person can install one on your compressor, making it impossible to let freon out without a key. They cost about $25. Newer air conditioners come with an internal hose which makes it more difficult to access the freon.

Experts say prevention is key. Parents should talk to kids about the dangers because freon does not show up in drug tests.

But I know you Atheist have to have someone to look up too since another Atheist killed Madeline Murray O'Hare. I think he made her into sausage didn’t he?

Nothing like you Atheist having a board meeting and chopping through problems.

Freon is inert. I cannot comment on the **lubricants** that **all** A/C systems have within them-- these oils could very well be quite toxic.

And anyone who vents FREON from a closed system,**will** get a dose of lubricant.

But Freon is **so** inert, prior to the "ozone layer" hoopula, it was commonly used in **medical** devices as a propellant.

Seriously: look it up.

----------

That being said? My comment stands: huffing FREON is the EXACT SAME THING ans huffing **ANY** inert gas, such as NITROGEN or HELIUM.

The "high" is simply a result of oxygen deprivation to the brain.

And?

Any **damage** is also a result of oxygen deprivation to the brain.

----------

Take care what you read-- not **all** news sites are very careful where the "research" their "findings"....

Things got out of hand and the cops came and raided the place.

The RNA band just kinda went everywhere.
