On the first day of school, the religious nutjob neighbor brought her bible and was reading scripture to the children at the bus stop. I only found out about it later - we were late, and came running up as the bus was about to pull away. The other atheist parent had stormed off - not saying anything... I have a few choice passages of scripture preloaded on my phone, if I ever catch her proselytizing at the bus stop again. I'll literally put the fear of god in her kids with some Old Testament fun if she pulls that shit again!
Regarding your right wing nutjob in the IT department... is religion a byproduct of his right wingedness, or is his right wingedness a byprouduct of his religious outlook?
Oh, I see. Wish we had one in King, where I live. The Religionists are usually around somewhere waiting with their hypocrisy.
Anyone know of any Atheist groups in King, NC.
Same here, with the religious crap. The only time I hold back in the slightest is at work, and it isn't much of an issue even then, since half of my team is atheistic. Even the Christians are liberal-leaning ones, except for the one token right-wing nutjob that apparently every I.T. department has to have, judging from my past jobs.
Outside of work, though?
Run into some Boy Scouts selling things outside of Walmart? "Sorry, I don't support the Boy Scouts," with a meaningful look at the parents running the stand, since the kids will have no clue what I'm getting at.
Anyone brings up Christianity (or any other religion, which never seems to happen, for some reason) at random, in conversations that have nothing to do with the subject? I'll tell them flat-out that I'm an atheist and why what they said has nothing to do with the subject and is silly.
Thanx...Religion is only a one way street for the religionists anyway!
I call out religious B.S. when it confronts me directly. Just met a new couple that moved in to my neighborhood this weekend. They were having a 2 day yard sale Sat-sun and were surprised that nobody was showing up on Sunday morning. They just moved here from upstate New York. Found out that they're atheists - woo hoo... at least 3 families on my block are atheist!!!!
Of course, the religious nutjobs across the street sent their daughter out to sell pancake dinner tickets for her troop of 'american heritage girls'. 'Oh sorry sweetie, I don't have any money on me right now." Then mumbled under my breath (I don't support groups that discriminate).... She even told me it was 'for Jesus'... Oh yes, then definitely sign me up! Ugh. When your bigoted parents start buying my kids' secular fundraising tickets - I'll happily be a good neighbor, even if I despise the premise of your group - you get a pass because you're an indoctrinated child.
What a rant, sorry!
It’s downright embarrassing to live in N. Carolina these days. Though, on a brighter note, the ECSU student highlighted on the Rachael Maddow show won the election. I'm very vocal about my atheism and that helps. I couldn't imagine having to be in the closet.
Just got here. How are things??
being from Elizabeth City originally - I find it humorous how much its been in the news lately... Edward Snowden - the NSA leaker is originally from E.C.... I live on the OBX, any OBX subchapter of the EC group? I'm surrounded by theists... help
