Has anyone here become more against religion over time? Before religion didn't really bother me, but whenever I see something religious now it pisses me off. If I found a bible, cross or some other religious figure I would probably end up burning it.

Do you think there is a difference in ability to change and cope with the changes in the world considering being atheist in the respect of the sexes?  Do women cope better than men and why?

My two cents worth. I think it is because more and more politicians (teabaggers, etc.) and other public figures are now shoving it all into our faces. That and because most of the xtians I know have become VERY militant about their beliefs. It seems the ones who talk about love of Jesus the most have become the most hateful about everything else! I hope it is just a stage this country is going through and the conservative Jesus fanatics will scream themselves into irrelevance.    

I watch religious shows in the morning (I call them my morning cartoons).  Doing this for is a twofer, I laugh my ass off and it reminds me how I detest religion!!  When I was a kid, I figured out the bible was S.B. The final straw came from an unexpected source.  My father was in Vietnam, at the time.  One day, we were eating dinner at a local restaurant.  I went into the bathroom to wash my hands.  On the sink was a religious paper depicting a soldier praying before going into battle.  The soldier was killed in action.  It said that if the soldier had not prayed before he was killed then he would burn in hell forever and ever!!  Imagine a 5 year old whose father was risking his life in a foreign country and having to read that shit!!  Ever since that time in my life, I lost count of how many times religion has pissed me off!!!

That's terrible for a little kid whose father was in a war to see!  You were one smart 5-year old!

Sometimes I get so annoyed that I purposefully go into stores and turn crosses upside down and religious paintings backwards. Last night I wanted to go to the local Dodge dealer and turn all their vehicles upside down but I figured that one might land me in jail!

I keep telling myself that I'm going to start carrying the fiction warning stickers for copies of the Bible that I find in thrift stores, but I haven't gotten that brave yet, however it's likely to happen, I'm feeling particularly motivated of late.  

LOL Tammy! If we lived closer we could go do that together. It could be a club! Or a gang! ;)

I would actually love that! I'm in a dangerous area to act this way and looking for partners in crime!

I would like to put an upside down cross on a church.

Mother nature tends to do that quite often down here, turns steeples right side up!

I do a lot of road trips with my brother and find, in every motel room, a Gideon bible.  I carry with me a bunch of stickers which I stick on the cover of each bible I encounter.  I doubt it does much good but it makes me feel so much better.
