Rev. Richard Watkins replied to Natalie A Sera's discussion Anti-religionism in the group Hang With Friends
"I think it's important to remember when you have anti-religious sentiment, that religion is in the wrong, not the people.  You're right, people often confuse the movement for the followers.  Religion is a virus that infects…"

Rev. Richard Watkins commented on Ruth Anthony-Gardner's group Hang With Friends
"Ownership of the WTC site has been rather ambiguous for decades.  The memorial itself is owned by both the memorial foundation and the PA.  That's not really an issue, though.  The memorial exists as a museum to help…"

Rev. Richard Watkins commented on Ruth Anthony-Gardner's group Hang With Friends
"Well I have to clear a couple things up. Like FSM, FCoA is a joke. There is no real established church or rules to abide by...it's simply a playful thumbing-the-nose at other churches. The reason I became ordained was so I could marry some…"

Rev. Richard Watkins commented on Ruth Anthony-Gardner's group Hang With Friends
"Well, I don't want it to sound like I think I have a better opinion just because I was there...maybe just a better understanding of the significance of the memorial.  If anything, I think the cross serves as good starting point to discuss…"

Rev. Richard Watkins commented on Ruth Anthony-Gardner's group Hang With Friends
"Natalie, I'm an ordained minister of the First Church of Atheism (delightful irony) and I'm very much against religion of any form (think Dawkins), but the 9/11 cross doesn't seem to bother me that much.  Perhaps it's…"

Rev. Richard Watkins commented on Ruth Anthony-Gardner's group Hang With Friends
"I think symbolism is silly, especially the cross (really?  a torture device?), but I don't see a problem with the cross at the memorial.  Ridiculous symbolism, yes...but it's so non-confrontational.  It's something…"

Rev. Richard Watkins replied to New Atheist's discussion Undoing harmful indoctrination, a hypothetical question in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"I think the #1 goal would be to encourage them to start thinking critically. Help them trust their instincts again. The only way to fight indoctrination is to help them work through it on their own. Encourage questions and instead of giving…"

Rev. Richard Watkins replied to Brenda's discussion Can you be an atheist and still believe in "true love"? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"After submit my reply, I came across this article in my Facebook feed:   http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/assignment-impossible/2011/08/02/too-hard-for-science-are-there-drugs-that-kill-love/?WT.mc_id=SA_facebook   It touches on some…"

Rev. Richard Watkins replied to Brenda's discussion Can you be an atheist and still believe in "true love"? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"What we call love is simply a chemical addiction in the brain.  Little triggers (sights, sounds, scents) from people we meet can trigger that production of chemicals.  If it was strong enough, we then enter into a self-sustaining…"
