Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August].

It is also NOT what this forum or thread are about, which makes it off-topic spam.

I'm sorry, but Bob is correct, you are brain-dead. CISPA, SOPA, and PIPA are being battled as we speak, We have been killing these bills since you were still in diapers, everything you mention about anything is nothing but conspiracy nonsense. Yes, I know what CISPA is, you're welcome.

Neo-Atheist ideology regards religion as inherently harmful. Secular-Fundamentalists aren't themselves religious by definition however their attitudes regarding their beliefs mimic many religious fundamentalists so much so that the manner of their expression of their beliefs is often indistinguishable in form, from their religious fundamentalist counterparts. They commonly use a myriad of semantical arguments to avoid being labelled and most often use the internet to spread their message.
They ignore rational counter-arguments regardless if it is supernatural or science based. They may exhibit obsessive-compulsive behavior regarding religion and related issues often taking disproportionate offence to even subtle outward expressions of religious belief and feeling compelled to constant dispell religious ideas. One may or may not subscribe to a deity to follow this ideology.
Noooooooo!! not fact based arguments!! what will the world come to?

Dear, it isn't that people are mocking your religious cult, they are just pointing out to you that it is a sham...based on proven lies.

yes, religion should be out of public life. keep it in your church where it belongs. that in no way disregards your first amendment right...

Alas the path to atheism/irreligion is a personal one.

Consider the much used Ad Infinitum Quote

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."

Is there a reason for positive atheism?

Faith Fuels Charity: Americans Who Give to Religion Are More Generous Than Secular Donors and Volunteers, Report Says
Philanthropy Journal, June 27, 2002.
Americans who contribute to religious congregations give more of their time and money than those who don’t support religion, a new report says. Americans who donate money or time to religious groups are the “bedrock” of U.S. charity, donating seven dollars in eight of all contributions and nearly four times as much as those who give only to secular charities, according to Faith and Philanthropy: The Connection Between Charitable Behavior and Giving to Religion. In addition to philanthropic giving, religious activity also helps drive volunteerism.“In round numbers, one-third of the people give two-thirds of the time,” the report says.“It is evident that faith has a remarkable impact on volunteering.”

Immoral creationist piece of sh*t troll who doesn't realise the game is up.

Atheists will never believe or be afraid of your hallucinations.

Crawl back to the discovery institute and tell them your forum campaign has failed.

Also ask them for proof of god.

Even if the cult is all upstanding and moral and crap, it is still just them paying for their own club. it's like members of a private golf clup calling thier member dues charity.

people often confuse tax deductible donations with charity. Lincoln is one of them.

You ain't the only one!

Frankly I'm surprised anybody bothers to vote.

The public lost control of the country long ago.

I'm sorry, I don't think we are much of a democracy anymore - but have become an oligarchy.

IF... you want change - all incumbants should be immediately voted out of office regardless of party or record.

This, of course, will never occur.

no, the public has given over control of the country to their apathy and complacency.

how would having the military and intelligence community people being the only experienced people in gov't be a good thing?

The church itself isn't tax deductable-- only the donations.

The light bill must be paid-- minus taxes, of course.

Churches truly are parasitic leeches on the hide of civilization, busy hiding pedophiles and worse...
