 I told her i found that very sad and disturbing.
She's no longer writing to me.

"some folk take it to mean 'freedom from religion'."

The problem with that statement is that freedom from religion logically entails freedom from it.

If I'm, say, a Buddhist, I should be free from Christian or Islamic rituals and rules. If I'm a Baptist I should be free from catholic rules, etc. So "no religion" follows just as easily.
I think the creepiest thing I've heard is recently I was in a debate with a fundamentalist Christian who admitted that Anne Franke was in hell because she was a Jew and Hitler was in heaven because he was a Christian.
So everyone who is wearing cotton.polyester blend clothes might as well be buried with a stick and a bag of marshmallows.
Oh christ, where to begin? I guess the thing I liked least is the priests who greeted me with "Blessings on you!"
I would have immediately checked my clothing for something disgusting "Blessings ON you".
In a letter from a Christian shopkeeper:

Since we know that Christ is the only way to heaven; it would truly be insensitive for us not to share Christ with the world.

LMAO!
Theist: do you want to come to church with me Sunday morning?
Me: What kind of church is it?
Theist: Catholic. You can bring your kids.

Besides the too-easy opening there, the implication is that there are adult-only churches?
That was your first mistake. Never lead them on. What did it matter what kind of church it was?

(Actually, I like the Quakers and will go to Meeting for Worship.)
I would have to say from an online dating site, he told me that he has seen where I live. Then he went on to say that if he didn't believe in God he would be a rapist and that it keeps him from doing bad things.
" Just take it out and play with it!"...."Jesus Christ just touch it!!"
