What does religious freedom mean?

Aug 10, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

In the United States, Muslim women trying to maintain modesty should get female-only hours at the public pool , right? What about Wicca troops who want a chaplain of their own, even if there are only a few thousand of them in the military? And Catholic business owners who believe that contraception is killing - should they have to provide it to ... (more)

It's all quite apparent, including your disdain for religion because of your arrogance and lack of understanding. You aren't fooling anyone, you're damaged goods.

I do have a distaste for religion, that is not a matter which I have hidden on these boards, however I do not have a hate or distaste for those who do have faith of any kind. I will grant you half a point on that one. I never tried to fool anyone, not even you, so the fact that I have not means I have succeeded in my goals. As for arrogance, that is pot calling the kettle black. Lack of understanding? I think I totally understand the responses to my posts from you, I just dont understand your thinking. I honestly tried sinking that low, but got a migraine and had to stop.
Lastly, anyone who has even lived on this planet is damaged goods. Life has a way of doing that to you.

Nope, the only damaged goods are those like yourself. You have no "understanding" just a big bunch of imaginary reasons you think you're accomplishing something by making an ass of yourself after you've been told to F*** off.

First off, how do you think I am damaged? Second off what dont I understand? Lastly, I am accomplishing something, I am amusing myself. I dont need to do anything other than that.
You seem, only judging by your posts here, to be a very angry person. I used to laugh at your responses to me and Jumper here, now I just pity you.

You prove it, every time you pop back in you show how utterly F***ed in the head you actually are. The fact that you say you are amusing yourself by being a TROLL shows how despicable you are. Pity yourself.

<quoted text>Wow, I guess I shouldnt have offered an opinion on a PUBLIC posting on a PUBLIC forum where anyone can read it and offer their own opinion. But since I have been nothing but polite to you and you have done nothing but flame me and invite me to preform an impossible sexual act, I do politely suggest that it is indeed you who needs to grow up. And as this might anger you further, I will offer another opinion for you. Any one who gets this worked up over an internet forum really needs to examine their priorities in life and adjust them accordingly. Just my opinion.
jeff, nothing against the poster, but I agree - anyone who allows a forum to upset them doesn't seem to have much interest in other things in life. I could never take this place so seriously, could you? You sound sensible - good for you!

Anyone that would just dismiss words on a page as being nothing is seriously on the road to being a sociopath. That's the fun thing about today's technology, it makes people insensitive to others around them, allowing them to callously dismiss people, desensitizing them, creating a group of unfeeling and uncaring individuals that no longer see the value of a person, being willing to say things and do things that they would NEVER have considered doing in the past, in PERSON. Such is the curse of those who lose their soul. Congrats.

You know I feel I must sincerely apologize for enjoying trolling you. It was not my intention when I started posting. You, however, made it so easy through your responses that I started having fun pissing you off. That was wrong and I know I'm better than that.
If you actually take the time to know me, I'm a pretty nice guy, just like I am sure you are not the totally pissed off person you seem to be here.
You have a wonderful Holiday season (whichever holiday you observe) and hope you can share it with your family.

Obviously, you're NOT better than that and I have no desire to get to know you, you've already shown me all I need to know about you.

The bile build up in you has reached dangerous levels it appears. Dangerous for your wellbeing of course, since you will never influence anyone to adopt your irrational bletherings.
Let my fun begin!
And yet, not one person noticed that you were missing.

Wow! Even after my last post showing remorse and kindness, I still get hatred and anger in reply. I guess I was wrong about you, you are full of nothing but hate and rage. I no longer pity you, I pity your family and friends.

Nope, just more projection on your part once again. What you "got" was the same level of dismissive condescension that you've been dishing since your statements about your disdain of Religion didn't get a round of applause. You've been nothing but a turd in the punchbowl for quite a number of pages and posts yet you think a half-assed apology should make everything all sunshine and unicorns? You truly are more disturbed than I first thought. Sorry, I don't even try to play nice with jackasses that would be prone to stab someone in the back the moment they don't get the response they want(again, as your post has proven once again).
Don't go away mad, just go away.

Wrong again you chump.
Check the thread '...MORE..From...Oricle,..plea se...' wherein I was being invited back, because my sage and rational contributions were being missed.
Meanwhile you are still the most loathed poster on this forum. Full of bile and bilge. Only last week I was reading about Pagans abusing children and then sacrificing them - was that you?
Lies and delusions on your part. Nice bit of slander there, makes it easy to get you removed, good job.

Good answer- let's not try to advance society and human relations let's just change the victims every so often.

On the subject of slander chump, as I told you - Check the thread '...MORE..From...Oricle,..plea se...' wherein I was being invited back by Sykora Arts Paul, because he missed my wise contributions.

Are you denying that Pagans abuse and sacrifice children?

Let's see you drum up some credible support you loser.
Nah, I just stand up to trolls like yourself. Many of the regular members have simply stopped replying simply because of jackasses like yourself. If punks like yourself "loathe" me it's of no legitimate consequence. I don't need to "drum up support", I don't answer to brainless twits like yourself.
