Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

How many times did you attend an Mormon church service?
How long did you pray about it?

<quoted text>yes, it is disgusting and you want to blame a reporter when it is yuor gay atheism at work. This was just another gay who committed suicide, but his great evil was to take others with him and to destroy innocence. The gay man who caused the AIDS American continent killer was a serial killer, but you all ignore that too.
Wasn't Obama great. He sounded like a Christian preacher and prayed and asked God to bless the families and said God at tleast 30 times. He basically told you gays and atheists, not now, I will not hide Christianity and God, today I am a Christian president and we must be a Christian nation to overcome this evil and combat the evil that your agenda brings. I you willing to put down your hate and seek Christ so that thgese gay atheists can be met and cured???
Another of you self hating morons who wants to politicize a tragedy. Grow a conscious, a book of fables does not suffice as one.

Jeff Sharlet
author of "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power"

www.democracynow.org/ , August 12, 2009

A secretive group known as The Fellowship, or “The Family,” is one of the most powerful Christian fundamentalist movements in the United States. The Family’s devoted membership includes congressmen, corporate leaders, generals and foreign heads of state.

Unlike other Christian right groups, they [The Family] don’t really believe that you’re in power because you’re a good person.They believe that they are the “new chosen,” that you’re chosen for power by God. You’re not so much elected by the people as selected from above. And when you’re in that position, it doesn’t matter what you do. In a similar vein, the foreign leaders with whom they work, the dictators, about whom they have no illusions, are chosen by God for their countries, regardless of how brutal they are.

The three dogmas that are leading to the ... devouring of democracy in America- freemarket fundamentalism, aggressive militarism, and escalating authoritarianism - are often justified by the religious rhetoric of ... Christian fundamentalism.

Jump into the pool and create your own version of this shooter. Everyone else seems to be doing it. He was a homosexual, thats why he slaughtered innocent children.....He was an Atheists and that why he slaughtered innocent children (You).....My Turn, he was a religious person who heard God whisper to him to commit this horrendous crime.......Next he was a pedophile.....what ever your biased is, pin it on the shooter, I guess it makes you feel better somehow.

"the killer was an angry militant Atheist." Evidence please!!!! How do come by this knowledge, the police are keeping every detail about the shoot very secret. Do you have an inside track or are you just lying your ass off to serve your hatred for the more intelligent being on the planet. That would be Atheists.

Yeah, you're a lying scumbag, using this horrific innocent as a vehicle for your hatred. You pathetic loser, how pitiful you really are. Is this what it means to be a Christian, to use the deaths of these little children to fuel your campaign against Atheists. I've never been so glad to be an Atheist if this is what Christianity does to a person. Shameful, pathetic, sick and twisted human that you are.

Was Ronald Reagan (Christian Fundie) an Even Worse President Than George W. Bush (Christian Fundie)? by Robert parry

In Latin America, Reagan's brutal strategy of arming right-wing militaries to crush peasant, student and labor uprisings left the region with a legacy of anti-Americanism that is now resurfacing in the emergence of populist leftist governments.

You gays and gay supporters decided that homosexuality was not a menbtal illness, now you want to hide from gay pedoohilia child abuse, gay mass murders of children,, Sandusky, Dahmer, and the lsit goes on and on and on.
Grow some balls, and accept the truth now.
You're venting your hidden homosexual tendencies ONCE AGAIN. You know how you can tell a person has homosexual tendencies? It's all they talk about. Its their primary focus no matter what the subject. The conversation could be about anything, and suddenly you inject homosexuality. I started a conversation about the biblical God murdering little babies, and suddenly you started talking about gays. The question we are all wondering is, why is homosexuality always on your mind? I mean ALWAYS. You seem to eat, drink and sleep homosexuality, why is that? I think we all know the answer to that. ha ha ha ha .

What I find laughable is that you liars have tried to pin the blame of Hitler's gay issues on Christianity, the tragedy of 6 millioin Jews and over 6 million Christians killed. I have seen you gay haters try to use the tragedy of millions of blacks victimized due to civil rights issues and slavery. Now, you want us to back down and ignore another gay killing our children.
Where was your gya mouth when you made the Matthew Shepard murder political and blamed it on a Christian homophobic nation, when in fact it was just another gay/bisexual killing a gay during a robbery.
Yet another gay post for you. Keep em coming!!!

I didn't go bad that far, but out of sheer curiosity I wondered how many of your posts focused on homosexuality. 26 of your last 30 post focus on homosexuality regardless of what the conversation was about. This thread had absolutely NOTHING to do with homosexuality. The actual thread is "Atheism requires as much faith as religion." I do realize that threads have a tendency to wonder off the issues at times, but for you to post 26 out of 30 posts focusing on homosexuality when it is not even part of the conversation clearly shows your unnatural obsession with same sex behavior. You have an ugly mind, and anyone can see you harbor the same homosexual tendencies you are so quick to condemn. You're obviously gay, and you're extremely angry that you can do nothing to change your tendencies. It shows in your never ending posts focusing on gays. You really need help.

I really don’t see any news saying this young man, Adam Lanza, was anything but a 20 year old deranged murder. It’s going to take some time to unravel what made this guy do what he did.

To make claims he was Gay, Atheist or Christian is a bit early and biased. Let’s not do that on either side. It’s going to take a few weeks for everything to come out. We all want to know what made this kid go on a killing frenzy against little children.

What we will see is no one holding Hollywood responsible for their continuous bombardment of gun violence from the TV to the big screen for over 50 years. Nor will we see anyone from the e-game industry take any responsibility. The gun lobby is going to dig in and not recommend any changes.

I think gun control is going to end up taking the biggest hit. I’m ok with some gun control. But it’s going to be useless if we don’t put the hammer on the movie industry and e-game industry. I’m afraid the Hollywood and the entertainment industry will slip under the fence again.
