[Judge deems national "Day of Prayer" unconstitutional]

It still boggles my mind how hard atheists are willing to work, in order to make sure they never hear anything about what they don't believe in. I mean, it's like me going to court to outlaw any talk of the Tooth Fairy, because I don't believe in her and it offends me that some people do. (Sorry if that spills the beans for some of you. ) Just ridiculous.

so you are saying you wouldn't pitch a hissy fit if a national "day of prayer to allah" were declared and unopposed?

Sorry, but no, it's nothing like that at all. Please go buy yourself a clue.

Oh please. Atheists already hear people's religious bullshit enough without the government unconstitutionally sanctioning it.

hey, midwestmama, you doddering bitch: The National Day of Prayer isn't unconstitutional; the GOVERNMENT SPONSORSHIP AND ENDORSEMENT OF IT is unconstitutional.

You idiotic fuckwits are perfectly free to go ahead and have a fucking day of prayer. Do it. Have fun. But you don't get to have a ringing endorsement from the government.

How is it you abominably stupid people manage to figure out the Internet well enough to post outrageously idiotic shit like this, but can't figure out how to use it to organize a fucking National Day of Prayer without government help? You are pathetic, both in your inability to handle nuanced thought and in your shocking laziness.

Fuck you.

The Day of Silence (as many of them pointed out) is also unconstitutional. However, the government didn't endorse it, and it wasn't forced on anyone. The protests were of people's choice, not a "You have to do it." situation.

ok, getting a little ridiculous here.

Is this all part of some secret government experiment that installed mirrors on the inside of these peoples eyes or something?

I don't give a flying fuck about you all praying together! I just don't want to hear the government telling me to do it!

Freedom of religion, lady.

Actually, ummmmm, no. No one is trying to force you to believe in the tooth fairy. However, you xians ARE trying to force your ridiculous beliefs upon everyone else. Therein lies the difference. ... I can also guarantee that if there was a NATIONAL day of prayer to Allah, you would be the first in line to outlaw it (even though you clearly do not believe in allah). Fucking hypocrite.

As an atheist, I would enthusiastically support a national Day of Prayer if and only if all religions and imaginary deities were involved. All.

This also means that atheists will have their own national Day of Reason and Logic, for the sake of representative fairness.

If universal participation is not possible, then, fuck it, it's unconstitutional.

Way to totally miss the point.

Of course, we'll be teaching your kids about the tooth fairy in health class.

It still boggles my mind ...

Some minds are easily boggled.

Nah, most atheists I've met don't mind other people being religious and making the odd religious reference in conversation. It's just that non-Christians (and many Christians) are bothered when it seems like the US government is endorsing one religion above all others.

It still boggles my mind how hard fundies are willing to work, in order to make sure they never hear anything about what they don't believe in. I mean, it's like me going to court to outlaw any talk of the Tooth Fairy, because I don't believe in her and it offends me that some people do. (Sorry if that spills the beans for some of you. ) Just ridiculous.

FIXED.

"It still boggles my mind how hard atheists are willing to work, in order to make sure they never hear anything about what they don't believe in."

Unconstitutional. Look hard and see if you can spot the root word there. Here's a hint: it's not "atheist."

"I mean, it's like me going to court to outlaw any talk of the Tooth Fairy, because I don't believe in her and it offends me that some people do."

Yeah. Because that's exactly the same fucking thing.

"Just ridiculous."

Agreed. Both you personally and that joke of a site you post on are both ridiculous.

Thanks.

I guess now you'll tell me that Candyland isn't a real country, either.

Bitch.

I bet it really did spill the beans for someone on RR.

Don't we have like national weed day & shit? The RR thread is stupid for sure, but this is definitely a frivolous lawsuit.

You can talk all you want about God, Jesus, or any other god till your blue in the face. It's just that the government can't endorse any of it. Our Constitution bans ANY religion from being endorsed.

4/25/2010 10:02:10 PM



Of course you fail by to realize that by becoming more and more demanding in your quest to shove your fundamentalist religion down everyone else's throats and institutionalize it within our government over the last thirty or so years with attacks on reproductive and gay rights, education, etc., that you've screwed yourselves by scaring the living hell out of the rest of us, fatihful and atheist alike. Something which is largely symbolic, like this Day of Prayer, would probably have slid by unopposed a few decades ago, but because it's now (correctly) seen as a part of your larger plan to institute your own theocracy, you've been challenged. You made your own bed.

I don't think you understand how the country works.

Do tooth fairy enthusiasts demand that women not have the right to choose to have an abortions? Do they try to institute official, government sanctioned, days of tooth worship? Do tooth fairyists try to control my sex life (what little of it there is)? Do they try to prevent 2 people who love each other from getting married?

'Cause if they did I'd TOTALLY fight 'em tooth and nail.

Well, we mainly object to how you assholes are trying to make the government itself be Christian when this nation was founded on the idea of freedom.
