Atheism is right up there with Buddhism and other Religions.
You were deceptive when you added, "atheism" as such - Secular Humanism(atheism)- when you supplied the footnoted opinion of Justice Hugo Black.

But that isn't what the Judge wrote that footnoted opinion, is it?

You - fabricated - that additional portion that you added, which you then presented(or, attempted to) as what was said.

That's not all...

I'll also point out that what Justice Black supplied as his personal >opinion< carried no legal weight.

That footnoted comment made by Justice Black did not set a legal or binding precedent.

It didn't establish Secular Humanism, Buddhism, Taoism or any of those philosophies mentioned by Justice Black as - "religions".

Not even the added in, and fabricated portion -(atheism)- you attributed to Justice Black's personal opinion.

For anyone that is interested...

The trail of why and how the USSC labelled Atheism a religion. You might also note that they had to change the definition of religion in the constitution to get it to fit Atheism.

Not sure what RCC you were raised in..
Across the boards it is law that all are born w original sin..
All infants must be baptised, just incase they die before their
sacrement of Confession.. Because where are these babies believed to be sent to if they should die before being forgiven of their "original sin"..Skom??
Hell..
I do not discuss my personal beliefs w you anymore..
Just an FYI to you.
By the way, the RCC never taught we must be baptized so infants don't go to hell

We were taught we baptize infants because we want them blessed by God and to be children of God

Do you really think anybody believes the RCC teaches you better baptize your babies so they don't go to hell?

And the whole conversation was whether the RCC uses the fear of hell against children in their teaching. You popped in and said where you were at they taught all the time that children go to hell. NOW suddenly it baptism and the parent's belief and has absolutely NOTHING to do with teaching children to fear hell

But you are not an honest person. You jump into fights, make stuff up, then disappear when asked questions or always have some excuse for why you won't answer when called on your nonsense

Wait a second, what fear-mongering?

Are the infants who are baptized subject to fear about hgell?

Please give an example of

"The fear mongering the RCC does to the minds and hearts of
children"

Oh wait, let me guess. You want to be able to post lies but not answer questions about them right?

Every time I log onto Topix on my Iphone it says "do you want to allow this site to use your location?"

All you have to do is press no. Although my location is hidden so it doesn't matter

But let's see

Anonymous proxy says buffoon
Anonymous proxy says buffoon again
Then it comes up Catcher's registered account saying "buffoon" to the next post

That's simply paying attention to the obvious. A proxy with "not-responsive" answers and dorky jokes defending Ians and HL says the same word repeatedly and then it comes up Catcher

Yeah, that's paranoia!

There is nothing ethical about what you did either in your comment to Grace or in your mischaracterizing what I said.
<quoted text>
You're going to tell me what you think I meant and then call me a liar because you think I contradicted that? This is what I mean about your use of the words "lie" and "liar." There is nothing ethical at all about what you do. You misunderstand what you read and then attack others based on that misunderstanding.
<quoted text>
But you are just a run-of-the-mill Christian like Trifecta, Dr. Shrink, Counter_Strike, Blind Man, Red Apples, simplyput and LAWEST. Congratulations to all of you.
You did lie

You said even if I thought it was true someone was not being honest it was stupid to say something when that person could be a potential ally

Then realizing how poorly that reflected on your ethics you tried to distance yourself from it. I have asked you about it half a dozen times and you refused to answer.

Then when you finally did you claimed that isn't what happened at all and you were talking about "gratuitous alienation"

That was a lie

You lie quite regularly

Kind of like they want to keep you and your wife happy because they want your American money and then changing your story to they want to keep everyone in general happy because that's the kind of community they want it to be!

Tsk tsk Iansy, pull it together and stick to one story at least

Not really.
Skombolis apparently has no concept of travel or vacation judging by his proxy comments, so perhaps Catcher was graciously allowing a menial laborer to vicariously enjoy his vacation with him.
I can't believe Catcher didn't come to that hot vacation spot you are in!

Aren't Mexican slums all the rage still these days for tourism?

What you unconsciously do here is define homosexuality as innate preference,
No, I'm saying that homosexual sex and homosexuality are two different things, and not always related to each other. Two teenage kids of the same gender can have sex experimentally with each other, but that doesn't make either of them homosexual. People in prison who have sex with each other for lack of an alternative (or as a demonstration of dominance) aren't romantically attached to each other.
Scientifically more pure would be say: homosexuality is a behaviour in which people voluntarily engage in sex with the same gender.
But then heterosexuality would be likewise defined as merely sexual activity. That is only looking at a small part of human relationship.s
Machismo and Homosexuality are deeply related.
Mmmmmm. No. First, obviously, this doesn't describe lesbianism very well. Secondly, I think many gay people feel more free to play with or reject the predominantly heterosexual gender role stereotypes. Dominance can certainly be an aspect of that, but I think it's a mistake to overemphasize how much of an influence that has.

For instance in macho cultures a real macho man will also fuck a man if he challenges him to do so. Male dominance plays a big role here. That is why macho cultures like Islam they can accept their son is homosexual if he is the one on top, but not if he show a weak feminine side.
I know what you are saying, but I find this whole concept odd. Frankly, there is very little femininity when sex is between two men.
I think it is our lack of consciousness/feeling that animals should prove their intelligence to us. The same unfeeling state led us to believe that animals feel no pain, and have no emotions. Science is now starting to recognize those ideas are untrue, but any feeling person knows that.
I think we necessarily anthropomorphize animals, and that is necessarily going to make us misunderstand them. It's a pity we cannot communicate with them more directly.

Well, in those decisions, the court didn't make the declaration that atheism is or was a religion, but that for purposes of the protection clause, it was to be afforded the full protections that religion enjoys.

In - Torcaso v. Watkins - Roy Torcaso, a man who had been appointed by a Maryland Governor to a Notary Public office was asked to swear in, and would not make "a declaration of belief in the existence of God"(part of the wording in the swearing in/oath process).

That violated the "no religious test" portion of our U.S. Constitution.

Roy Torcaso was atheist. You can read more about the case, here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torcaso_v._Watki...

That appears to be the rule or result in these "cited" court cases that theists often try to use in saying that atheism is a religion. The Courts didn't declare that atheism was a religion, or wasn't a religion, they declared that atheism was - afforded equal protection with religions - under the Establishment Clause.

These court cases were initiated and in response to, attempts or conditions that theists, or aspects of our theism saturated society in some way, trampled the rights of the atheist, which resulted when the atheist was discriminated against, or was denied a right or the liberties of the rights we all are supposed to enjoy, equally, and specifically because they(atheist) >- do not practice a religion -< at all.

Pray away. Prayer is great because you can so easily feel better about yourself without having to actually do anything.

Snowbunnie shared everything about herself.

I didn't expose anything.

She gave the link where SHE was accused of child abuse:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Jodi-In-Johnsto...

She gave us her full name and address with this link of hers:

https://license.ohio.gov/Lookup/SearchDetail....

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

And told us her myspace page.

Then this cupid stunt had the unmitigated gal to accuse ME of posting it!

She is lying POS and so is Trifecta.
