"I agree with this. He may be a good man, but right now he is being highly controlling in an unhealthy manner. These expectations he has are going to make you and your children miserable. The younger ones might be fine, but the oldest is being…"
"After I finish school, I plan to return to Texas. Sure there are parts that have a lot of Christians, but others are in the other direction. Austin, for example, is a good place for an atheist to live if they need a lot of others like them."
"I hardly think it's an arbitrary choice. Making 18 the legal age for being an adult, but 21 to drink, those are arbitrary. They're not based on anything that actually says this person is less likely to be stupid or anything.
""How dare you limit my ability to fund organizations that attack gays! You're impinging on my homophobia freedom of religion! Boycott PayPal! Ensure that you continue your right to dehumanize 10% of the population!""
"Really, what is Christmas nowadays? The Whos in Whoville in Dr. Seuss illustrate it perfectly. It is about community and materialism. Neither of which belong only to a religion. So feel free to enjoy both."
"A facebook program gave me a phoenix. But knowing my personality and quirks, I'd have either a rabbit or a cat. D; Although, there is the very real possibility I wouldn't be able to summon a patronus, since you need a positive memory to…"

"Well, when the animals were dying off, I assumed it was some new superbug killing them off. >.> After all, new diseases are always occurring.
As for when weird shiznit happens in my life, I will joke that "if there is a god,…"
"Since Ricky is an atheist, I can see it actually being humorous rather than actually offensive to nonbelievers. And of course the Christian world will complain. An atheist in heaven goes against their whole point of making people worship their deity."
"I clearly see a face to it, but it's definitely not the face of someone I would consider intelligent enough to con people into worshipping him. >.> Looks more like if Peter Griffin from Family Guy were to try to draw Jesus. >.>"
