We all lost loved ones on 9/11.

That comment is out of line.

And still no excuse to give into the hate that allowed such attacks-the same hate, mind you, religion employs.

Who is "they" anyway.

Like it or not, "we" (athiests) who live in America are also in the wars directly - hence the post from the military family.

Thank you for the service and sacrifices, Justalysn. You are truly a credit to your country.

Please also be aware that by thinking and posting "us" vs. "them" mentalities are the exact mentalities of the extreme religious you are so venemous about.

all will be well once Charles wins the Pulitzer (assuming they don't care about spelling), runs for President, then blows up the whole damn world in the name of religious intolerance.

Your arguments fail to find traction in your chosen audience, so you resort to name calling like a frustrated child? Tsk, tsk.
Comment by Troy Gorsline on January 6, 2012 at 12:48pm

Yet something else I take exeption to and disagree with. It isn't cowardice to be tolerant. It is courageous actually. Cowardice is giving in to ignorance and hate-to allow oneself to degrade to the lowest emotions in our nature.

I have been nice to this point - I am tolerant. But the last comment left me confounded. To give into hate is militant at its lowest point.

I would check your own courage levels, Charles, before calling into question the courage of others.

Comment by Alecks Gates on January 6, 2012 at 12:09pm
The only thing I despise more than intolerant religious people is intolerant non-religious people, usually because they feel more entitled to themselves.

80% sounds about right to me.  as for Charles and where his views might be better received, might i suggest Bellevue. 

Comment by Troy Gorsline on January 6, 2012 at 11:37am

Given further thought, I will concede to 90%. Heck, that number is prob. too generous.

See? Free discussion does work!

Comment by Marc Draco on January 6, 2012 at 11:35am
Charles,

The people here are a close knit bunch and very tolerant - you are welcome to your view, but they don't sit well here.

I would encourage you to consider your position - we're not here to be firebrand atheists who hate everyone who worships any god... We're atheist thinkers, scientists, educators and the like.

You may find a warmer welcome elsewhere - but for now may I kindly request you keep the comment wall clear of rants and hate speech; if there is a time and place for it, this isn't it.

I would suggest you try the KKK but they are religious, I believe.
Comment by Joseph P on January 6, 2012 at 11:34am
I REALLY wouldn't say 99%. Maybe 90%. I know too many assholes.
