Atheism is perfectly legal in America today. The problem with most Atheist is they only want to harass the honorable people of faith. As you know they therefore are just activist seeking attention that they didn't receive through a good faith based family structure. So, as I stated earlier an Atheist is just a loon for all intense and purpose in the eyes of the other 91% who do believe in religion.

Shouldn't you be off fighting crime or saving babies or at least submitting stuff to Mr White?

I received a fairly good faith based family structure growing up. And in my experience, it's the religious who do the harassing. When was the last time you saw atheists going door-to-door handing out copies of works by Hitchens, Harris, or Dawkins?

The argumentum ad verecundiam and argumentum ad populum are strong here.

That purpose is pretty intense.

I was raised by devout Christian parents who took me to church every Sunday of my youth and made sure I read the Bible at home. Oops.

"all intense and purpose" - another oops. Learn English.

These days, the majority of atheists in America were formerly religious, many of them evangelicals. The only thing that will turn a Christian into an atheist faster than "a good, faith based family structure" is open-minded Bible study.

Too bad for you that I am an Atheist that was raised in a Fundamentalist Christian (Creationism and Biblical Literal Practices) family. But unlike you I actually started thinking outside the little box I was being shoved in and escaped the claptrap of religious indoctrination. Therefore your statement is false.

I doubt those 91% would get along, even on that topic.

"Atheism is perfectly legal in America today."

And has been since its inception.

"So, as I stated earlier an Atheist is just a loon for all intense and purpose in the eyes of the other 91% who do believe in religion."

D+, revise and rewrite.

Actually, I'm perfectly happy to leave you alone and just live my life (hell, most people I know don't even know I'm an atheist) if religious people just quit picking on everyone else.

"The problem with most Atheist is they only want to harass the honorable people of faith."

Honorable people of faith? You mean all the ones that keep showing up in the news for various scandals?

"As you know they therefore are just activist seeking attention that they didn't receive through a good faith based family structure."

Attention is the last thing that I want. I'd prefer that you, people like you, and most people in general to just leave me the hell alone.

"So, as I stated earlier an Atheist is just a loon for all intense and purpose in the eyes of the other 91% who do believe in religion."

How do you think we view all of you when you implore your invisible friend to do special favors for you and call it "prayer"?

And those 91% are loons in the eyes of each other, as they believe in the WRONG kind of deity.

I don't go around telling people I'm an atheist. To Superman, Sweden is probably all secular and atheist anyway, but many people here consider themselves Christian, without being active about it. I respect other people's faith, as long as they respect my lack of faith. I've had interesting discussions with Muslims and Christians at the same time, and we all respected each other, and were genuinely interested in each others' religions or lack thereof.

Christianity is perfectly legal in America today. The problem with most Christians is that they only want to harass the honorable people of no faith. As you know, they therefore are just activists seeking attention that they didn't receive through a good evidence-based family structure. So, as I stated earlier a Christian is just a loon for all intents and purposes in the eyes of the rest of the population who don't believe in their religion.

I can make wide generalizations too, you know.

Why am I a loon? 91% of people (by the way this is probably too high) believe in invisible magic friends but I don't! If reality is any judge, I'm the normal one.

Doubting Thomas

We want to harass people of faith? We're not the ones knocking on people's doors on Saturday morning wanting to discuss religion. And I received plenty of attention in a faith-based family structure.

Also, I'm not really offended at being called a loon by people who believe in talking snakes, magic fruit, and magical Jewish zombies.

As a former Methodist member of the choir that went to church almost EVERY Sunday until I was 18, I'd just like to say, your alleged argument is bullcrap. Furthermore, since I'm not the guy eating a God made of crackers and wine, ... and parlor tricks, and flim-flam scams, I'd be careful whom I called a loon if I were you.

Fundieism is perfectly legal in America today. The problem with all fundies is they want to force their 'faith' on those who don't want it. As you know, they therefore are just babies throwing their rattle out of their pram, seeking attention that can never be justified. So as I stated earlier - and in the eyes of all those who base their mindset on logic, facts & reason - in technical terminology...

...a Fundie is a loon. [/"The Terminator"]

Rubbish!

"Atheism is perfectly legal in America today"

- When was atheism ever illegal?


"The problem with most Atheist is they only want to harass the honorable people of faith. "

- What is the justification for such a momumental generalisation?.


"they therefore are just activist seeking attention that they didn't receive through a good faith based family structure. "

- Does 'good family structure' include divorce, which is rampant among fundies?

Rubbish Indeed! A double post.

Sorry.
