Well, sports fans. I generally avoid the R&P forums. But I just couldn't pass this one up.
USPS discriminates against atheists.

Looks like the real deal to me.
I am neither following nor returning to this thread. You guys sort it out.
I think you're missing the point here, which is that those shoes are hideous. Omg I wouldn't be caught dead in those, even if I didn't believe in an afterlife...
And who names a shoe "KITTEN TESTICLE GREY" like for real, c'mon now....
Here's the point...
"it (the shoe company) ran a test. It sent two packages to 89 people in 49 states. One package had Atheist tape, one didn't. Those marked "Atheist" took three days longer to arrive, on average, and were 10 times more likely to disappear altogether. No such bias occurred in Europe. "
If you tell the world what you have in a package you are more likely to have it stolen than if you don't. They are being stolen by people who like the shoes.
More likely, the packing tape is confusing U.S. sorting machines, but not those in Europe. There are probably differences.
IMHO the only thing stranger than starting a thread and declaring you will never visit it again, is perpetuating that thread.
Who knew atheists wore different (specially made even) shoes?
I'm more in awe of the company in business solely for the unbelievers. As far as I know, no one makes Christian shoes?
Otherwise, I don't think there's really anything special about this.
If the sorry is true, the packages appear to be prepared by someone with no shipping knowledge. They need to ship UPS, whose rules are much more lax. The local post office here probably wouldn't accept either package. The one with multiple atheist stickers looks suspicious to me. As would a package with the word Christian thrown across it multiple times. As if the person wrapping was unhinged. The other package doesn't Asher to USPS shipping guidelines either.

The amount of attacks against religion in these HubPages Religion & Beliefs forums is akin to Communist Russia between 1925-1947 with the League of the Militant Godless (aka the Union of Belligerent Atheists). ...

Let's face it. We ALL know that most atheists are paranoid of religions and that they're in-denial about it. They claim they're the more peaceful people in America when really they're no different from any average...

It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which...
