Normally this is the kind of subject I stay out of. But this one has just pushed all the wrong buttons with me. How DARE this person claim that
they're better because of their belief in a god. Funny, I seem to remember that the only reason there even IS a United States to live in is because
people wanted to escape religious persecution. Do Atheists not get the same rights? Just because they don't believe in some "all powerful being"
sitting around watching us like lab rats, they don't get the same basic freedoms and rights?
I'm utterly disgusted by this person, and others like her. Just because they believe in some mythical god they're better than everyone else. Yes I
said mythical. There is just as much evidence that Zeus and the Olympian gods existed as there is for the biblical God. Who are these people to
shove their god down our throats. Freedom of religion does NOT mean the freedom to force everyone to believe the same thing, or you get thrown out of
Religion is responsible for more deaths in this world than any other two reasons combined, but yet people are PROUD to proclaim their beliefs, and
denigrate anyone who feels differently. Religion is a PERSONAL thing, and nobody else's business but that persons. If I'm an atheist that's my
god given right (don't you just love the irony there?) and NO ONE can tell me that I have to leave this country because I believe differently. Show
me ONE PLACE that it says that Freedom of Religion means that you HAVE to believe something.
I especially love the part blaming atheists for the crime in this country. If most of the people in this country believe in God and want the Atheists
to leave, but there's a huge crime problem, what does that say about the religious people out there? If Atheists are so outnumbered but there's SO
MUCH crime going on, then that means that the religious have to have something to do with it too.
The ultrareligious people in this country are no better than the extremists in the Middle East that blow themselves up and kill people when it comes
to tolerance. They sit there and preach how forgiving their God is until it comes time to accept someone that believes differently than them. And
then it's all about getting in their face and screaming at them how they're going to burn in hell because they believe differently.
To hell with me and Atheists leaving this country, let's get rid of the fundamentalist religious people of ALL religions, and let's make this TRULY
a tolerant country of all religions, or lack thereof.
