<quoted text>Again, if your beliefs are so intrinsically tied to the public displays thereof, you have bigger things to worry about. Were I to have faith in a god, I don't think it would much matter to me how much public attention he got.
I've never heard of any atheists showing up to protest funerals, but if that has happened, I disagree with it strongly. I have heard of christians doing it, however.
My beliefs are my beliefs, i dont worship the cross or a church building.. I worship and serve a living Christ! What bothers me is all those whiney atheist who are sooooooooooo afraid of this man called Jesus, and of those 10 commandments that ''just hang'' on a wall, and are depriving the younger generation in schools from prayer...

I mean geo,, if you are so confident in what you believe, that God doesnt exist... Why is it that you all are so fast to take away ANYTHING that represents or speaks of him????

It's like saying there are BASICALLY three body types.
Thin

That's it.
Ugh...
That doesn't mean OR imply that there are ONLY three body types, just that those are the three basic types.
I don't know why you are trying to squirm out of this. If you don't think that everyone needs to fit nicely into the mold you cast, say so. The misunderstanding was on you, not me. You straight up said "there are the three basic sexual orientations...that's it." Coming from a person who thinks a woman is irrevocably bisexual if she ever once deviates from men, it was easy for me to think you meant what you said, not what you intended to say.

Seems to me you are a LIAR!
And the head of your alls Evil cult is David Silverman, who is wanting the cross removed from the 9/11 museum as well..
The Freedom from Religion Foundation, an atheist group headquartered in Wisconsin, is demanding that city leaders in one Oregon community remove a Vietnam War memorial that is topped by a Christian cross.
“We have no objection to the veterans’ memorials,” said FFRF attorney Rebecca Markert, in a letter to Coos Bay City Manager Rodger Craddock, as quoted in Fox News.“Our objection is to the message of endorsement of Christianity over other religions and non-religions.”
The memorial has stood for 41 years, Fox News reports. It’s been prominently displayed in Mingus Park since 1972. City officials say a handful of people have complained over the years. But the threat of legal action from FFRF is pushing the local government to schedule a meeting on the matter and consider their options.
“This is an outrageous assault on the veterans who served in Vietnam,” said Hiram Sasser, director of litigation with the Liberty Institute, in Fox News.“Why must these activist groups’ culture war spill over onto the veterans and their memorials? All they ever did was serve our country and provide the very freedom these activist groups claim as their own.”

Not a funeral. The cemetery shouldn't be endorsing one faith over the other. People of all faiths serve, and die, in the military.

Anyway, I guess that would depend on what PTA meeting at what school and in what context.
But the same could happen in a PTA meeting if you announce you're a Christian.
Wanna be ridiculed? Try that!
I find it hilarious that, one the one hand, you refuse to accept that atheists, being in the minority by far, experience the occasional bout of persecution, then you turn around and claim that being a christian in a christian majority nation will get you ridiculed.

It has nothing to do with status, and you damn well know that. By status I mean your acceptance in the community. It would decline quite quickly once the rumor mill begins. Why would pronouncing you're a christian bring ridicule when the majority of people in attendance are already christian? You better pack it in for the night, you're not making any sense...

<quoted text>River man, do you intentionally act this dense as a debate tactic? I was making a comparison. Denying a gay person equal rights or representation because of his sexual orientation is the same as denying a black person rights or representation because of his color.
Really?

Seriously?

Have you ever been denied your right to vote?

Ever had to use the gay only water fountain?

Ever had to sit in the back of the bus - where the gays MUST sit?

No?

Gimme a break.

The racial plight that blacks had is NOTHING like the current plight of gays. Nothing at all.

What freedoms are you denied, as a gay man?

We are just tired of having them shoved in our faces.
Shoved in your faces??? Come on now who are you kidding? Do people in court houses, schools and other official buildings remove those ''harmless'' commandments etc etc,, and shove them in your face?? Ridiculous..
Placing the commandments in publicly owned buildings and Christian symbols on publicly owned property amounts to government sanctioning of Christianity over other beliefs, or no beliefs, and is considered by the highest court in the land to be "establishing a religion", which the framers of our constitution, even the Christians among them, were wise enough to know was a bad thing.
You would just prefer that we nasty atheists would shut up about it, which impinges on our first amendment rights of free speech.
You obviously have no respect for our constitution.
Seriously you are that weak in what you believe in, that you have to go to such lengths to have them removed???

How many head quarters, buildings and offices does the Atheist organization president David Silverman have??

"I do not believe that there is not a god"

Nice double negative.

So you believe that there is a god.

You aren't an atheist.

Yes, that's how I see it. Please tell me how I'm wrong.

Example:

A straight woman has lesbian sex with another woman. She is not straight, she's bi.

I have been ridiculed for being Christian. Many times.

But I don't go home crying about it & figuring out a way to stop others beliefs.

That's an atheist's job.

But that's not you, so never mind.

Acceptance in what community? My neighbor, right next door, is an atheist. We get along great. Their kids are atheists, too. Go figure. They attend the same school meetings that I do. They attend the same City Counsel meetings that I do. Neither one of us are ridiculed by the community. Our community is obviously more tolerant than yours.

What the hell makes you think a PTA meeting in Southern California is a majority Christian?

Not gay. They have to deal with things they shouldn't have to deal with in an "equal" society. One example - they can't marry and gain all of the benefits that come with marriage.

Nice double negative.
So you believe that there is a god.

RR, I try to be civil on these forums, but your stupidity is testing my patience. First of all, you shouldn't be a grammar nazi when you regularly butcher the english language. Yes, I used a double negative, but I had to to get my point across, which you still somehow missed. I will try to make it easier. See if you can spot the difference between these two sentences:

"I believe there is no god."

"I do not believe in a god."

I am an atheist of the latter variety, while you insist that only the former exists. You are mistaken. I can't believe how often this point has been driven into your head without sticking.

How do atheists try to "stop your beliefs?" If your belief hinges solely on public displays, then maybe you need to rethink your beliefs.

First, I should tell you that I disagree with our laws on gay marriage. You guys SHOULD be able to enjoy the sane marriage rights as straights do.

However, that one right you don't get is nothing like all the rights the blacks didn't have.

IMO, the gay right thing is nothing like the black rights thing. Not at all.
