So indeed, so long as there are people knocking my door or going to schools telling me or my kids that we should live this way or that I will get off my fat ares and take issue with them.
So long as there are people that would attempt to persuade my child that he or she would be committing an "abomination" for living their life as they see fit, I will open my mouth.
Religion is being slowly, methodically and systematically removed from our lives. This should bring you and others great joy.
If you are so worried about your children being indoctrinated you should be fighting against pop-culture and government not religion. Gratuitous violence, sex, drugs and the worship of the all mighty dollar are plenty enough to indoctrinate our kids into the cesspool of filth that society is becoming,all without the help of religion.

No dude, it is slowly and systematically being removed form my life and other like myself who reject it there is an ocean odd difference. You or anyone else are welcome to our share of religion and I will be very pleased indeed if those that choose religion keep it.
Why on earth should I be fighting anything you happen to disagree with ? I may or may not believe pop culture or drugs to be a good thing, this is my business and not for anyone else yet again to try and dictate to me what opinions or thoughts I should or should not have.
Perhaps you consider homosexuality or lesbianism a cesspool of filth that I should protect my children from ?
Nobody is shoving anything down your throat. You are here of your own determination and volition. ATS has hundreds of threads.
It is not necessary for you to continually subject yourself to others "delusions". Yet you do. Day after day. You have only yourself to answer for this, as well as your continuing to put yourself through it. You obviously obtain secondary gains from the conflict. Say what you will. Perhaps you should look within yourself to ascertain the real reasons you enjoy this so very much.
You would like for me to keep my beliefs to myself, and the others on this board as well.
I am an American. An American woman. A spoiled one. What I choose to do or not do is patently none of your business. Thank God.
And lastly: All religions are faith based. You don't seem to "get that". Others do. When you time after time after time after time ask for "proof", you sound like a tired old sad broken record. Surely you must tire of even asking the question.
Religions are faith based. Please consider this:
1. Accept this and move on with life, (or get one, or whichever fits.) 2. Get over yourself. You're really not that big a deal. Defending my position on my beliefs, here, now, with you, would be an utter waste of my time, and I have Christmas presents to wrap.
If you want to be the person who spent the days of his life on a message board defending atheism, offending those who are trying to live a spiritual life, go ahead. It's rather a sad existence. No disrespect intended.
In my experience, Christians love to be persecuted. It gives them a powerful sense of belonging. It's "us versus them!" It provides many comfy couch Christians with a kind of link back to the early Christians who were crucified and fed to lions. Many are able to poorly rationalize to themselves, "Well, if we aren't right, then why would anybody bother to confront us?"

Having said that I would still obsessively campaign for you to believe whatever you wish all i ask in return is that you keep it to yourself.
