"You might want to approach the ACLU or the American Atheists or whatever groups there are out there who defend religious freedoms about this nonsense. There is no way they could actually arrest you for not going to church."

With regard to your father and everyone else who is religious and won't listen:

Aldous Huxley: “The vast majority of human beings are not interested in reason or satisfied with what it teaches.”

Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.”

Terence Meaden "---but those who do, are atheists."

Hello Eve, and welcome to this wonderful world of atheist truth and peace.

If freethinkers could only reason with the religious, there would be no religious.
