Pat is an ass-hat! (hmmm, that might make a good t-shirt)

What he says could be said of any organized religion. ALL were created and are maintained solely for power, to influence and control masses of people. Anyone who believes in an all-powerful deity is just another mark for the ultimate long-con.

Funny, sounds like he's talking about US Christianity.

@elkingo - "if you are so enraged at Christians all the time that you feel you must lash out, you do need help"

All I did was pose a simple question, there was no hate, anger or malice fueling that. It was a just a question, much like your sarcasm that you said was just sarcasm. Get it?

On a serious note, if you'd like to learn more about the FSM then you must be willing to accept him in all of his noodly glory. You must be fully committed to the way of the Pastafarian, my friend, there's no half-assing it like many of today's Christians do in their beliefs. You will know when you're ready, when that day comes I will happily guide you on your road enlightenment.

Show me ONE time I ever tried to convert you or anyone else

This reminded me of a few days ago: I was enjoying my weekend and then my doorbell rings and there are several loud pounds on the door. I answer the door and there's someone there who offered to scrape snow off my walkway, but even he admitted there wasn't much to scrape. I declined his offer, and he said "Ok, Jesus loves you."

That didn't really bother me, I just said 'whatever' and closed the door. The part that really pissed me off though, was that as he was leaving, he stopped in the middle of my walkway and wrote "Jesus loves you" in the snowbank beside my walkway with the handle of his shovel. What the f*ck? I've never heard of an atheist writing "religion is evil" or somesuch on a stranger's property.

I think people with that much hurt towards religion; that they lash out at a collective whole...need psychological help. There is something just not right with them.

I happen to think that religious people need psychological help; you're obviously delusional after all.

whodat6484 -

You know I do see your point. Your just so defensive that you aren't seeing mine. I don't label people as crazy for spiritual beliefs. I actually find variance healthy and interesting. If you honestly do have faith in the FSM, I would love for you to tell me about it some time.

However, I honestly feel like if you are so enraged at Christians all the time that you feel you must lash out, you do need help. I feel the same way for people of any faith that that feels the constant nagging sense of frustration and anger that they should lash out at "opposing" faiths.

I do apologize if I offended you making that point, because it is a waste of your and my time. Let us try to be constructive in our discussions.

markust123 - If you were doing that, you should have said so, and not made a statement that blankets every Christian.

I do denounce them. Most of the Christians I know do. I accept gay people atheists. It isn't my place to judge. I have wide cultural variety in my circle, and I know a lot of other Christians the same way.

We aren't all 700 club members. We aren't all out to get you or take away your rights. Most of us will help you with whatever you need.

I am sorry if I offended you, but my point is should shouldn't be so obtuse towards all of us.

Given how much of our politics here in the U.S. is determined by religious ideals, I'd say we're getting closer and closer to the same level as Islam. Against your religious ideals for gays to be married? That's fine, so long as you only care whether or not your church is sanctioning it. The same goes for hospitals and schools. If it isn't a church, but an organization created to provide a different service, it is not a church, and should not be afforded the same exemptions.

"Show me ONE time I disrespected your beliefs."

When you made that sarcastic comment on a legitimate question that I asked. The question was why people accept the notion that, even though there's no proof, god exists and don't label someone who believes that story as crazy. Then, if someone says they believe in the flying spaghetti monster because the planets are shaped like giant meatballs, chances are that you and your theist pals will immediately label that person as crazy.

Yes, the question was laced with humor, but you still chose to not answer it and make a sarcastic comment. Therefore, you disrespected my belief in the flying spaghetti monster.

whodat6484 -- Show me ONE time I ever tried to convert you or anyone else. Show me ONE time I disrespected your beliefs.

Hince the sarcasm.

Now, sit real still and I will shove a miniature bible down your throat.

I'll use logic, similar to what theists use as proof god exists, to show you why the flying spaghetti monster exists...

@elkingo - "Do I have to explain sarcasm?"

The first three words of the first sentence are "Sarcasm or not" meaning, no, you don't have to explain sarcasm.

I like how your response to my first comment was sarcasm and you never touched on the point I was making begin with. You believe that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do, judges you based on your actions and you can communicate with him telepathically. There has never been proof that this man exists, yet you choose to believe it and see no flaw in that kind of logic. If I told you I believed in the flying spaghetti monster, of which I have absolutely no proof of his existence, you'd tell me I was batsh*t crazy.

"No, you did not. You made a statement that blankets all Christians. Go re-read what you posted again. Your statement was inflammatory, and silly. If I hadn't have pointed that out, you would have been done with the conversation."

How is this inflammatory? "I hear a lot of talk about how the Muslims don't denounce the extremists, well where is the denouncing from Christians of their extremists?" I read and hear a lot of hate coming from religious leaders. I could count on one hand the number of times I remember Christians denouncing these people (Not talking about the Westboro Baptist Church. I'm talking about the everyday hate spewed from certain respected preachers). All I was doing was speaking about what I see.

"You've demonstrated your own hypocrisies in the past here. So pot meet kettle."

I think you will find when I am attacking religion it is because some religious leader is being bigoted and hateful towards gay people. Sorry, but you can't be a victim if you strike first. Although the extremists that are pushing hate sure are trying hard to pretend they are the victims. If I have ever just attacked religion just to attack religion I apologize. I have stated in the past that I don't personally believe in organized religion. Although I am just talking about my own beliefs I can see how that could be insulting.

Lmao.. seriously?

Do I have to explain sarcasm?

Asking people to "sit still while I shove a miniature bible down their mouths" is a play on the attitude they have about people "shoving religion down my throats". Statements have been made that blankets every single format of Christianity, and every single Christian. However, I have not tried to force religious beliefs on anyone.

Seriously, it is only sarcasm.

This guy again?

He needs to pull the stick out of his a$$ and get out more. Maybe go visit those churches who fast alongside mosques during Ramadan as an ecumenical act of solidarity. Go admire the architecture of the famous Blue mosque, or get lost in the mystic/romantic poetry of Hafiz and Rumi. Perhaps have a delicious traditional lamb dish with dates and pomegranates...

Yes I know it won't happen, but a gal can dream right?

@elkingo - Sarcasm or not, if you tried to shove a bible down my throat it's the last thing you'd ever do. I don't care who or what you believe in, that's your choice and I respect that. All of you jesus freaks need to learn to respect others who either choose to believe in something different or not anything at all. You all say Atheists are the cause of these problems between believers & non-believers but that's not the case. The problem is, in fact, caused by people like you.

@elkingo, "My point is that it is maladaptive to feel a need to insult others based on spiritual beliefs. If one has a need to go through life like that, then they are miserable. Therapists can help with that."

Last night I made a pretty simple observation about the hypocrisy of Christian leaders. This was based on the hateful statements the speaker in the video has made in the past, "I hear a lot of talk about how the Muslims don't denounce the extremists, well where is the denouncing from Christians of their extremists?"

Your immediate response to me was a knee jerk insult. Not a harsh one but it still was an insult, "You're a silly little man aren't you?" You found the need to insult me based on your spiritual beliefs. According to you you're miserable and need a therapist.

It is a blessing to me. It is also temporary.
