I see everywhere how theists are preaching on street corners and publicaly bashing anyone who doesn't believe the same way they do. And they think that is ok, but what about someone who is of a different belief?
sort by best latest
I don't think it's ok. Who gives the theists the right to say whatever they want and if anyone else tries to recipricate, then that is uncalled for. It's hypocritical to say the least.
Melissa.. why would you call the police when this man only had love in his heart for you? But it is okay for you to spout your atheism all about as freely as you want? Little missy this Country was founded on the principles of religion and Jesus Chri
JT--Exactly what would those principles be?
JT--It has been my experience that when someone calls on someone else to articulate their argument, they simply do not have one, as it would seem to be in this case.
It has been my experience that when a hard headed liberal has their mind made up it is set in stone.
You are Anti-American my friend. Your answer is exactly what is wrong with this country today.
Excellent answer and great points - it raises a lot of questions too because on one hand govt. should protect free speech, but could easily be misused for the wrong purpose.
Government was founded to protect the people, work for the people to have the right to worship and live a life without fear of persecution. Forget what you learned in school Christen.... find out for yourself why this Country was founded. By Christia
This country was founded through genocide. Are you saying that's the Christian principles you want emulated? Spell my name correctly if you want to address me also.
American Indians... YES YOU ARE RIGHT!!!! But, those who came to this country came to escape the tyranny of a ruler who could tell them who, what, and when to worship. They fled for the freedom of religion. You have brought up a very important fact!!
They came to escape tyranny by causing more and that was acceptable? How about we focus on freedom "from" religion for everyone. You are free in this country to believe and worship as you wish, we are free also not to. win/win for all.
Women are people too and some forget that.
Not in the end Christin.... not in the end
Well, yeah I suppose they are fallowing his example. But, when does the human rights kick in? Is everyone just going to run around and destory the opinions of anyone else who doesn't agree with them? unless that is what they mean by "being like jesus
Attacking someone's religion isn't following Jesus.
Didn't Jesus call the Samaritan woman a dog, in essence? Matthew 15:22-28
In modern times calling someone a dog is quite offensive. Back then that wasn't the case. The woman didn't seem offended at all. What Jesus meant was "Just be patient. It's not your turn yet". He just used the analogy that people eat before the dogs
You believe me that Christians also attack other Christians for their beliefs not followed in the exact manner. It isn't always CVA or AVC. Many times it is CVC
That would be nice wouldn't it. christians are just as rude as non-christians if not more. At least the ones I am surrounded with, think they can say whatever they want. But it's only wrong when someone does the same thing with a different opinion.
Wrong again Virginia!!!!!! Practice what you want... but you will reap what you sow.
I see someone still making threats and he better be careful what he things and says because that also comes back to you. Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you. They don't get it, really.
Lady G... HOW DARE YOU QUOTE SCRIPTURE AND CLAIM TO BE AN ATHEIST!! Hypocrite!!
I never said that I was an Atheist! Get off your high horse and stop bashing and making assumption that are untrue about others. You are sick!! So much EGO.
I think it is you with the HUGE EGO Lady. You cannot fathom that you are wrong? VERY SAD INDEED!!
Yup bcause I am a women with a voice and you can't stand that. Go one with yourself.
I do not have a problem with women at all. I have a problem with those who slander my Heavenly Father. I will always be there for him as I would my earthly Father. Neither has done ANYTHING to you for you to slander their words.
U are sick and you read garbage into everything that I say. Why is that? I do not trash your heavenly father. The things that you come up with, geesh.
As a atheist in a very religious town I can tell you its hard. Its almost like a shameful secret to be a atheist. Religious people are more free to express their lifestyle choice than atheist. In fact atheism can be a crime in a lot of countries.
How can you even say that? Have you listened to a logical reasonable conversaion with anyone other then a christian?
When we were homeless I was turned down from a religious organization (I let my ego go for a minute) we went to for help with a deposit because I considered myself "agnostic on the flyer they made me fill out. It's easier to lie and say I'm Christian
Have you ladies ever seen on the news wher Christian atheists are beheaded for this in your own country or imprisoned? NO. This is done to Christians daily all over the world. So do not dare tell me you are treated like Christians in this day and tim
