    That was actually really jerkish...
    I realize there should be a certain level of respect for those in church, however that man had no idea what the phone call was about and reacted a little hastily.
    I guess you could say something about letting anger blind you...

    I`m sure he smashed it because of the generic ring tone. If the song was Stairway to Heaven that phone would probably not have been smashed.

    "And the LORD did look upon the cellphones, and he saw that it was not good. And the LORD did command his followers to smite the cellphone with furious anger, and said unto them: "With your wireless AT&T plan with unlimited local off-peak calls you have offended the LORD your God." And thenceforth the cellphones were smote asunder, and there was again peace upon the land, and the LORD saw that it was good."

    i think ministers are messed up cause they realize how incredibly wrong the bible is...ffs the bible disproves itself..if God is "Perfect" then why is he so ignorant to punish billions of ppl for the mistakes of 2? and not to mention he created sin. Think about that for a while you "snobby little christians" (sry had to get that jab in.) im 95% sure that the bible was actually a story a long time ago and some stupid people believed in it and spread the word, and by that time the author was dead and could not say it was all a story.

    Remove your head from your bottom please. There is no such thing as a "snobby atheist".

    Anyway..we dont like christianity much because of it`s many stupid undelying rules.

    As an atheist, where am I going to spend eternity when I die? Oh yeah..Hell. I dont belive in such nonsense, but your dumbass religion, just like large portion of the rest of them basically states, if you dont think and act like us, you desrve eternal torture.

    Way to go!

    That is fake...after the lady hangs up her phone she moves her hand to the right and down towards the seat next to her. The lady in the blue then moves her hand down and hands the preacher something, while making it look like he was taking the phone from the other woman. The sound of what he smashed was too hollow sounding also, like a child`s toy. I have smashed a couple of cell phones before and they made a solid thumping sound.

    Hey guys...not everything on the internet is staged. If you haven`t noticed, the world can be pretty interesting at times, and we don`t need to make poo up to keep us busy.

    Also, if that person was answering an emergency call, wouldn`t she be a little more distressed than seen in the video? Wouldn`t she be even slightly reluctant to give up her phone? She doesn`t seem to be in any sort of gripping situation; she only seemed to be answering a regular call, which she really shouldn`t have in a church.

    Do you hear yourself talk? "Do you have corn in your ears, mister?" Ed from Ed, Edd n Eddy.

    In any case, I loathe cell phones, but throwing one on the ground is not acceptable. And he was talking about love? Way to show that "Christian love" minister!

    99% of the Atheists I`ve met have been complete dicks to me for being religious. So, I support the snobby atheist remark to a degree.

    In any case, that wasn`t really acceptable.


    But it comes to mind, that when they smashed the cell phone at the live preformance (see link in page 3), I hardly read any "omg that was wrong" posts.

    Are you only saying that because he`s a minister.

I think the problem comes in when non-nice individuals try to start controlling others thoughts and dictating what is "right". If someone wants to argue the point Im the first to jump in. But if you just leave people alone and not try to control their lives I got no problem with your delusions.

    Go on about your life and leave the rest of us alone.

    99% of the Atheists I`ve met have been complete dicks to me for being religious. So, I support the snobby atheist remark to a degree."

    that would be like me saying, "99% of the white people i`ve met have been jerks to me for being a brown guy. So I can safely say that all the white people in the world are f*ckers."

    of course that`s not true, cuz I`m from Canada, where there is love all around =D

    Having your cell phone on in a public place where people are listening like a church or a theatre is pretty rude, but walking over and breaking the person`s phone isn`t exactly a fair punishment.

    I`d sue that preacher guy.

    As for "snobby atheists", I`m an atheist, and I`m not offended, because I don`t think it meant that all atheists are snobby. If it did, however, screw you.

    Kumquat: "Cause all you atheist like to insult Christians."
    Ha, no.
    "Stop trying to make people join your little cult."
    An atheist cult is a contradiction in terms.

    There are snobby atheists. There are (many) snobby Christians. There are snobby Hindus. There are snobby Buddhists, Muslims, and Catholics, too! Imagine That!

    Generalizations are stupid.

    And Kumquat, I would have to ask you this, for the sake of comparison: Have you ever had an Atheist come to your door while you were trying to nap/masturbate/watch the latest episode of LOST? Probably not. Now, based on personal experience, I can honestly say that it is, more often than not, Christians and Mormons who... er.... "try to make people join little cult." Not atheists.

    In fact, I have had so many Christians try to evangelize me in so many locations (my campus, my front door, at the supermarket, in traffic, at work, on TV) that I am half-tempted to start projecting some hot gay porn on my garage door just to keep them at bay.

    "But that`s religious discrimination!" Gimme a break. Take another Zoloft and stfu.

    Snobby Atheist here to say that video had Awesome written on it...although I have never been in a church sermon that empty before I became an Atheist, so it may be staged.
    As for the join your cult comment earlier....Atheist is the lack of belief in something. If you don`t believe in pixies then your not starting a cult. Its not like you worship the non belief of pixies.
    Plus atheists come off as Jerks because we challenge something that Theists believe demands respect, which to an atheist seems ludicrous. Its like me saying you have to respect my magical lemming army located 8 ft under the earths crust.

    That was indeed awesome. Not cool of the minister to throw the phone down & not cool to answer your phone in church. But I will say that I`ve wanted to do that to ppl who bring their phone into quiet places like theaters. And churches.

    ok. for everyone getting offended, <1% of the human race is NOT snobby.

    atheists are snobby because they think theists are naive for believing in something they can`t prove.
    theists are snobby because they think atheists are blind for not opening their minds to their beliefs.
    the only ones who aren`t snobby are the ones who`ve admitted to themselves that no one can ever KNOW the truth until we die, so we should just try to be good people, believe what we believe, let others believe what they believe, and not worry about the specifics.

    oh, and i`d definately sue the church for the replacement cost of the phone, plus some for emotional (not to mention theological) damage. i mean what if that person was at her last straw and just trying to find SOME comfort in god... "well, guess it`s suicide for me!"

    Legacy: "It`s so stressful to know how intolerant people are of each other, regardless of their religious/non-religious beliefs."

    The central message of Christianity is this:

    John 14:1 (NRSV) “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And you know the way to the place where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

    Translation: If you`re a Christian, you`re going to Heaven. Anything else, you`re going to hell.

    Not that I`m picking on Christianity here, all major world religions have more or less the same message, if you`re not with us, then you`re going to burn in hell for eternity.

    How`s that for intolerance?

    Religion is by nature divisive and sectarian. I`m from Northern Ireland- in a country where everyone has the same ethnicity, same language, same culture, same everything, except for religion, how would we have known which side to kill if we didn`t have labels like "Catholic" or "Protestant" (both Christians, of course, but that`s another story).

    Religion.

    Sh*t it.

    Hehe, no one says anything about Pagens being snobby :) And which one was it who said atheist are "Smugg"? Is it not "smug" with just one "G"? I could be wrong... As for the minister. I would have been quite upset if someone took my phone. But I`m pretty sure it was staged. No one in America reacts that way to their cellular device being smashed. No one. And why in the world did she just sit there? If your phone goes off in a place like that you jump up, start apologizing profousely and dig around for your phone to turn it off. Duh. As for the religious debate I think when you get some hxc Atheist and some hxc Christians together everyone starts to get a little snobby. It just happens. We`re so intolerant of every one else. I personally think christianity conradicts its self constantly. I also think that America is too defensive. One comment and we have 5 pages of argument. Not all of it is debate of course but still. Chill out. :)

    It was fake!
    It was real!
    Christans are snobby!
    Atheists are snobby!
    Religion is wrong!
    Religion is literal!
    Religion is figurative!
    That preacher was justified!
    That preacher was unjustified!
    PIE!
    CAKE!

    It doesn`t matter. But the most interesting thing about this video is that you have pretty much a good random sample of the A) intelligence / B) Religious beliefs of the i-a-b community. The stats match what I`ve long suspected. (BTW, it was also a pretty good insight to other things too... take a wild guess)

    I won`t say the results because I think I`ve already offended enough people by putting pie before cake.

    Oh by the way, Legacy... you don`t sound stupid. No, I don`t agree with most of what you said, and I`m not going to go there, but you influenced the intelligent side of the scale.
