    That's not what you said when I oppressed you last night! :winky:

    AR, MA, MD, NC, PA, SC, TN and TX all have language in their state constitutions or other state documents that establish that in order to be elected to public office a person needs to take oath of office and swear to God, though I suppose non-theists who don't give a shit about that could still hold office. But I suppose these states just believe that Buddhists, Atheists, Agnostics, Unitarian Universalists, New Agers and people from the Church of Satan are all second-class citizens.

    Nah-uh jesus preaches tolerance and thus that must be the case with his followers!

    No, I am not really communist. Yes, it is weird that I use this name.

    is the young religious americans thread the worst we've ever had?

    There are a number of interesting topics skirting round the edges of that thread. But yeah not worth posting in.

    I have been somewhat interested lately in how very Gnostic a lot of modern American Christians are. Especially those churces that grew out of the revival movements of the early 20th century.

    A lot of the most hard core Christians today if you plunked them down in the 2nd or 3d century would have way, way more to do with the various sects labeled "Gnostics" (and heavily persecuted as such by other Christians) than not.

    BlazBlue is the new Guilty Gear, basically.

    I just finished installing Wesnoth.

    Did you just want to hop right into multiplayer or did you want to get some SP experience under your belt? I haven't played the game in a year or so, myself.

    I'm genuinely surprised you'd never heard it before. It's one of those metal songs that everyone knows, like Master of Puppets or The Trooper. I'm even more surprised you'd never heard of Slayer. They're literally one of the biggest metal bands ever.

    preacher did you read the polls that were posted twice?

    athiests are still the most hated (or I guess most distrusted) group in the United States - even more so than homosexuals. Do you realize how much you have to be hated to be hated more than gays in the united states?

    I really don't see a lot of difference in behavior between atheists and the religious; both have a tendency to be smug and superior and to prescribe their belief system (or lack thereof) to everybody else.

    Agnostics are superior to all of you!

    In 1998 eddy, and again thats when they know you're an atheist. I'm not going to keep this up because I hate when this crap polutes chat. But people can spot gay people better than they can atheists.

    which is a similar argument used against homosexuals... that we are somehow 'better off' because we can disguise our minority status

    which is the biggest load of bullshit when applied to gays, and also when applied to atheists.

    Eddy no one is asking atheists to hide themselves, but how would someone know your an atheist other than you randomly blurting it out? I mean honestly I work with people I've known for going on 8 years, I have no idea what religions they subscribe to, nor do I care.

    Hm. I thought the rates were relatively static. I wonder if Dawkins has the right idea about messaging methodology.

    Also, re: all these people in need of a religion: science!

    This sums up nicely what I dislike about current "movement" atheism.

    Hint: science: not a religion.

    I know a guy who keeps bringing up religious conversations just so he can say "Well, being agnostic is the only belief which makes sense because we'll never really know" to which I reply "No one gives a flying fuck who or what you do or do not believe in, you smug cunt".

    It's really the only way of dealing with the situation.
