Quote# 43930

I don't feel like I am "shoving" my religion down anyones throat I sometimes feel like I get "Atheism" shoved down mine like when my kids aren't allowed to pray in school. Why can all the Atheists walk around not praying?? Does that make sense?

Why do these people always finish up with "Does that make sense?"
Do they want to tempt us?

No, it doesn't make sense.

Do you think Jews are shoving Judaism down your throat when they don't go to church on Sunday?

Are you shoving Christianity down their throats when you don't go to temple services on Friday night?

When your kids aren't allowed to pray in church or at home, then you can bitch. Until then, STFU.

Except they are. Quietly. To themselves. Didn't someone say that's how one should pray, as opposed to shouting your prayers on the corners?

Why can all the Atheists walk around not praying??
Because we don't believe in your mumbo jumbo? Because the first amendment says we're free to not believe in your God?

Does that make sense?
Not even a little.

And what about that stuff Jesus said about not praying in public?

How dare all you anti-philatelists shove your hatred of stamp collecting down my throat by walking around not collecting stamps! The very act of not carrying a dozen stamp albums everywhere you go is an assault on philately!

I've got to admit though, atheists tend to be hypocritical (especially in the case of the humanists in Britian).

Why do I say this? Because they complain about the advertisement over hundreds of years of religion to everybody, so they decide to do exactly the same thing, I mean come on, is there no such thing as the 'better man' when it comes to cultures interacting in society?

Allegory for Jesus

FAILURE!
1. Kids ARE allowed to pray if they aren't disrupting the classroom.
2. Not being allowed to practice one specific religious practice in public does not necessarily mean that that religion that has those practices is being discriminated against, let alone that atheism is being advocated by doing so.
3. How does it make any sense at all to oppose not praying? Do you think that the rational alternative to "no prayer in schools" is "all prayer, all the time, for everyone"?

"my kids aren't allowed to pray in school"

Liar.
Your little retarded morons can beseech their imaginary friends anytime they want.

You are permitted to walk around "not masturbating" , "not pooping on the sidewalk", and "not peeing on signposts and walls". How much fredom do you want ?

Your kids can pray as much as they want without disrupting the class. It simply can not be led or arranged by a staff member of the school.

"Dear God, let me pass this test, thanks, Billy" is perfectly ok.

Hey Mom2threeangels, guess what! I'm not praying! And an hour from now, I'll still be not praying! And tomorrow, guess what I'm going to be doing...that's right, not praying! Sometimes I don't pray three or more times a day! And there's nothing you can do about it, nyah-nyah!

You and your kids can walk around praying or not praying all they want, even in school. I'll bet they could even read their buybulls at school lunch, or in study hall, or they could even get together with other fundie-kiddies and pray or discuss whatever the hell or heaven they want. I'm sure they could even carry their buybulls around openly with their schoolbooks. The schools allow the students to independently decide on if/when/what they wish to do during free time.

What's not allowed is for the school to endorse/enforce adherence to any specific religious doctrine/dogma. I'm sure you wouldn't want your kids to be forced to pray to Allah, Zeus, Buddha, or the FSM, any more than someone else would wish their kids be forced to pray to your fundie god whoever/whatever that is.

How the hell is this in any way shoving anything down anyone's throat? It's freedom of choice, freedom of religion, and freedom FROM religion, without the school being in any way involved in the decision.

@Dr. Shrinker
Wow, you are good! I can only not pray like two times a day and that is only if I try really hard!

As far as I know kids are allowed to talk to their imaginary friends.

Atheists not praying is not the same as advocating atheism. Do you also think that giving blank papers to kids is advocating atheism? Kinda ironic that then the entire universe is mostly a huge monument to atheism since the proportion of explicitly religious stuff in it is negligible.

Lastly, "Does that make sense?", are you using the Chewbacca Defence?

I live in one of the most non-religious countries in the world, and it was pretty socialistic when I went to school*. I was still allowed to pray as much as I wanted in school, as long as I didn't disrupt the classes. We even sang a hymn at the beginning and end of each school-day during my first three years in school. I bet your kids are allowed to pray in school. You just want them to be allowed to disrupt the class to pray to other kids, right?

Atheism is just a lack of belief in gods. There is simply nothing to shove anywhwere.

A dog bashing on a keyboard for an hour would come up with something which makes more sense, you imbecile.

You are free to pray all you want - in church, or in your own home. You can, I'm sure, even mumble prayers under your breath as you walk down the street or do your grocery shopping, but don't be surprised if you get some funny looks if you do.

"when my kids aren't allowed to pray in school."

Hey, if your kids want to pray in school, fine. But remember Matthew 6:6, all you Bible literalists out there.

Therefore every day, all Christian Kids must drag to/from school - and everywhere they go - from class-to-class; even whilst doing PE, their own closets for them to enter, and pray; only in there, too. Your own 'Word of God' orders you to do so, and you must obey, literally. >:D

And why all lockers in US schools should only be 12 inches x 12 inches. The classes in Contortionism are on the 1st floor. >:D

"walk around not praying?? Does that make sense?"

Unless you can point out to we Atheists who we should otherwise 'pray' to, you tell me, dearie. [/Doug Piranha-levels of sarcasm]
