What's with all the accusations of atheists worshipping government? I assumed it was just some weird tick the OP had, but it looks like they're not the only one...
I dislike the government a *lot* more than I dislike the thought of people actually believing in the various FSM derivatives. Granted both groups are extremely dangerous to myself and my species... but some whacko with a book full of fairy tales isn't the one spying on me and enforcing outrageous restrictions on my freedom. At least, not in this point in time.
So apparently the school found out too and they made an announcement on the intercom what to do if this really happens

I wish the atheist comment had been left out because it is distracting from the actual issue here.
What do I call a faith-based belief as a way of life that instills fear of rejection and punishment in non-believers? A religious cult. If I do not participate in your cult by paying "my" (their) taxes, I will go to jail. And furthermore, I will spend life in prison for this for so long as I continue to do that, which is the highest punishment available and the equivalent to raping and killing a child. Yet what statistical studies have been done to show liberals redistribution programs benefit to society before they were implemented? None, because their introduction was based on faith alone.

. . . atheists, take turns literally worshiping their God, the government . . .
Where did you get that from?
Oh, and I'm in California.
Not the "atheist-communist" thing again.
