And bible thumping idiots.

That's just like... your opinion man. That is something militant atheists still need to learn - you don't need to constantly pop up and be like "HURR DURR JEEBUS! YOU IS DUMB". You not only make all non-believers look bad, but you're adding jack & dick to the conversation except euphoria.

I'm an atheist, and as long as someone else isn't trying to shove their religion down my throat or use their religion as a justification to attack me or my way of life, I don't care if you worship Jesus, Yahweh, Vishnu, Ra, Thor, your family's ancestors, or your pet rock.

If I go to a Christian funeral, I will stay silent throughout, bow my head and rest my knees and hands on the relevant parts of the pew during the group prayers, hold other people's hands when the priest tells everyone to, and keep my personal thoughts about the afterlife to myself.

I do like the idea of our government offering equal space to the major religions of the area (like if a community has a bunch of Christians, Jews, and Atheists, they might have a small Christmas tree or a small nativity scene, a menorah, and something for the atheists {like the "A" inside 3 electron rings that makes up the symbol for one of their biggest organizations}) or keeping everything to a minimum (because we are supposed to have a "separation of church and state", so we shouldn't be over-representing or under-representing religions with our tax dollars too much), but I can also just sit back and enjoy the spirit and meaning of Christmas without any religious attachments.

Good goy. Shut them down.

I bet you believe in a ton of new agey non-mainstream religious shit.


[–] Jaegerjaques 2 points -1 points (+1|-2) ago 

Yeah, he probably believes in the Holohoax, global warming caused by CO2, and similar Jewish fables.

You lose.

I've been here far longer than my account age would suggest, and I've literally never once had a discussion about god with anyone here. If you're having a problem with this, it seems likely you're going around looking for those discussions. And if you're the one engaging people, then they aren't really thumping, now are they?

I see way too much "War on Christian's" talk to think they're not thumping.
