Here's the thing, especially Leyla, who I believe I have offended:
It seems to us non-believers that the rights of Christians are pushed above and beyond everyone else's rights.
Your right to freedom of religion stops where mine begins (mine being a freedom FROM religion).
If people can pray in public and demonstrate against things deemed "unchristian" and make posts saying they are boycotting someone for speaking out
against their god, then those of us who don't believe in a god or gods have the right to speak out against it and complain when prayer is done in
Religion should be a private matter. Until it is kept private, the rest of us have the right to say what we like AGAINST the religion.
sorry if your feelings got hurt, Leyla. you know I respect you because you are one of the Christians that don't go around shoving your beliefs down
everyone else's throat, and because you think for yourself and don't go along with the flock.
However, my rights to disbelieve (or Kathy Griffin's) and say whatever I like about that disbelief is just as valid as anyone else's right to
If people don't want their beliefs discussed or even mocked, they shouldn't be bringing them to a discussion forum.
Anyway, I mock EVERYONE's god. In case nobody's noticed, I tend to mock Satanism in chat (13 members there for a black mass). If I knew more about
Jainism, I'd mock the Jains. If I knew more about Hinduism, I'd mock the Hindus.
I mock, therefore I am.
But seriously, I find people praying publicly for me to "find my way" to their god to be utterly offensive in the way IR found what Kathy Griffin
said to be utterly offensive. Christianity isn't the only belief system and I reject Yahweh and jesus as I reject Mohammad, Scientology and
the only thing I do accept is FSM. May you all be touched by His Noodly Appendage.
