Isn't that cute, he's trying to equate people who think differently than him to the violent and dangerous. I think that deserves a cookie for such a determined effort, but unfortunately you still fail basic logic. Come back next year for another class.

Also, I'm relatively certain there isn't a registry for "radical Islamists".

The blog appears to be invite only now, but I saw it a few days ago when this was posted on Pharyngula. I'm leaning towards Poe. Please dear God let it be a Poe....

I'd like to volunteer for his registry. I could be Atheist Zero! What fun!

In b4 every other member's (christian) ex-girlfriends end up on it!
Seriously, I expect nothing from it but people some of them don't like being added to the list in hope to get them in trouble or just as a juvenile insult.

Tempus

Throughout human history, every atrocity, every manmade disaster, every pogrom and purge, originally started as a couple of guys sitting around tossing ideas back and forth.

Sometimes, the best thing to do to keep them from metastasizing is to make sure they get lots of sunlight and fresh air, out there in the open.

So, give us a smile, Pastor Mike. You've got the world's attention now!

But you forgot to compare gays to terrorists and the KKK this time.

...but what about us indecisive, wishy-washy agnostics? Would we be included on a National Register of Skary Diffrunt Peapull too?

You guys always forget about us in your radical plans. :(

Ya know, I wrote in another Weirdo-Quote-Post concerning Tony Perkins:

"And what is it with these NeoCon Fundy nuts with names similar to more Progressive folks?!....."

Well, Mike Stahl sounds like Mort Sahl.

MORT SAHL = Brilliant Liberal Political Stand-Up comedian of the 1960's
MIKE STAHL = Fundy loser who says a bunch of crapola like this.

The membership of your group will be used as a dangerous fundie registry.

It gets even better. Later on he says that the list could be used so that if any of his acquaintances are on it (as if) then he knows who to target with witnessing and warnings about the dangers of the atheist lifestyle. Also, in the case of atheists who own businesses he would know which stores to avoid.

So, how long before he would insist that atheists wear a little yellow "A" on their clothing at all times? You know, just so he could know who they are ...

Sure, go for it. I'd rather have you fundies spend time on a useless project than be involved in politics.

The reason those groups are on watch lists is because they're either violent & dangerous or pose some kind of threat to society. Not believing in someone else's ancient supersition doesn't pose any kind of threat.

But I think it's kind of telling how threatened Christians tend to feel from people who don't believe the same way they do.

But atheists haven't done anything wrong, so you can't do that.

@ Extraintrovert:

Well, suspected terrorists are monitored by the government, so that is probably what he was talking about.

I'm afraid I don't see the connection. However, I suspect that if you looked hard at the people on those lists you wouldn't find many atheists. You would however find that nearly everyone on those lists is religious in general and Christian in particular (except the "radical Islamists," of course). Perhaps you should just fold them all together and start a "Fundamnetalist Wackjob Theists Registry" instead and save on paperwork and administrative costs.

Those registries are for people who were/are breaking the law or are otherwise a threat to the community. Atheists are neither, so fuck you Pastor Stahl.

8/31/2011 6:42:35 AM



If you think that atheists (people who simply *disagree* with you) are on the same level as convicted child molesters and terrorists, then that tells us all we need to know about your perspective.

For two reasons, no less:

1- It's completely legal to be an Atheist in every decent, civilised, democratic country - including the US. And - unlike said sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc, we don't speak, think or act like them. Tony Alamo, Timothy McVeigh, Scott Roeder et al ring any bells, Mikey-boy?

2- As for Atheists here in the UK like yours truly, we have a little something called the Data Protection Act. Even the FBI, CIA & NSA have to ask permission of our Home Secretary to look at databases of British nationals in this country.

So good luck with that, pal.

Are you that weak in your faith that people who choose to believe (or not believe) otherwise are that big a threat to it?

And would this be for full-fledged atheists only, or do agnostics like myself also get to be included?

Fine, form one. I'll even give you my name.

Good luck trying to make a registery of such a large percentage of the population.

If you don't think this is funny, get out and vote. These gas- emitting asscracks mean business.
