Now I feel bad. On another forum (mainly chat room) that has lots of non-theists on it, I left because I couldn't stand sexual talk on it anymore. I know it was because how I was raised and stuff in…Continue

"This is the kind of mealy-mouthed statement that classes with "love the sinner, hate the sin" that you get when believers talk about homosexuals.  Ultimately, it IS condescending and deserves to be treated as such."

"That's exactly right Will Faithless Sophia.  I think many people would accept someone who worshiped 'satan' over an atheist because at least 'satan' is real, lol."

Terrible statement from a friend

So me and a friend (she's catholic) were talking about religion. I didn't bring up that I was an atheist, but I said I didn't want to say what my view was. Anyway she said "Even if you were an Atheist, that would be okay because I separate religion from the person". I said nothing.Is it just me, or is that statement kind of saying an atheist is like the worst possible thing she could think of or something? I want to say a response later on, but I don't know what.See More

Hi, Angela, welcome to the Atheist Nexus.

Angela to Terry: "..... Indeed as I said in my welcome, Evolution pulled me out of my former religion. Sadly, the only other Christian Zoologist I knew in college got a Master's Degree, then wrote me a long letter how God told him to abandon Marine Biology, and now he's a Pastor trying to solicit donations from me!!! Isn't that sad?"
Yes, Angela, stories like these are terrible. He was irreversibly 'got at' when young, and does not recognise the truth (i.e. of evolution and zoology) even when surrounded by it.

Hello Angela P., and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists recognise that gods are phoney and religion is a fraud used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.
