    If Atheists actually care about improving their public image, they should draw a clear distinction between Atheism and Anti-Theism, then refuse to allow themselves to be associated with Anti-Theist individuals, groups, or policies, and even actively oppose the incredibly hateful and bigoted view that is Anti-Theism.

    agreed but I'm thinking that the prez is, at least to a degree, in thr anti camp.
    if they fail to do so it will likely have the same effect as homosexual pride parades.

    Atheists can't match the religious for hatred

    Look at how you talk about Muslims

    There is one true god

    The god.of erm, er Protestants er I mean Catholics, no wait a minute I mean Jews, no Muslims , hang on Armish, no baptists, no no Presbyterians, methodists, no you fool, it is 7 th day adventists, r is it Shia, or Sunni, or is it morons,

    Well whatever it is this one true god makes perfect sense and the above named groups love each other


    How utterly mad do you have to be to buy that?

    Atheists can't... But Anti-Theists, such as yourself, certainly manage.

    No doubt... His attitude reminds me of a Jefferson quote:

    The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts as are only injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. - TJ

    Yes, you are right

    I'm just cranky about religion

    Like those people burned to death in its name

    Or for those children being brainwashed into accepting fairy stories over science

    Or maybe for those sick people the church wants to die for lack of stem cell research

    Or possibly for the AIDS babies of Africa

    Or the gay people driven to suicide by church inspired homophobia

    Or women being whipped for being raped

    Or stoned to death for adultery

    Yep, I'm just cranky about religion for no good reason

    Get yer banjo out and give us a tune, you got a perty myouth

    Our liberal friend is a classic and consistent example of where the hatred and vitriolic rhetoric really comes from. That would be the liberal left.

    its an old old trick to accuse your opponent of a thing you already have done. As Mr W.Larson outlined to us, Dems while decrying the right of warmongering it is the Donkey Party that initiated all but one war last century (the moderate Ike being the exception).

    Interesting that you raise consistency

    Atheists all share the same view in their subject area

    Theists cannot even agree between themselves which fairy story they are going with

    Maybe they should sort that one out before insisting on the truth of competing versions and hating the subscribers

    Religious people are mad

    Yes ... That and the double standard that is so evident in the MSM and our politicians. I am still perplexed at why any normal thinking person, despite their political views, could align themselves with the hatred of the liberal left.

    Here's how it works

    The rich have led you to believe that everyone is in the position they are in because of their industriousness

    They want you to think this for two reasons

    One so that you will think the rich got all their wealth nobly off the sweat of their brow

    The other is so that you will think poor people are poor because they are lazy

    This is so that you don't ask awkward questions about the rich and the rich aren't expected to help out the feckless poor

    The fact is though that the biggest factor in determining your wealth is the accident of your birth

    That is a fact

    They don't want people thinking that though because it isn't far from there to having to do something to address the problem

    People like you just swallow their shit and vote against your own self interest
