"I still can't understand that kind of stupid.
I understand being a sycophant *if* there is something to be gained. I can understand having faith, but when there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt that something is rotten in the Vatican, having…"
"Many Catholics just ignore the obvious and keep on, keeping on. Thinking about one of my Catholic relatives, a niece. She always was Catholic, but then married into an Italian Catholic family. If she were to back off, I'm sure her in-laws…"
"It just blows my mind that after all the years that the news has been plagued with the existence of charges of priests diddling boys, there are still Catholics who are loyal. Seriously, I can wrap my head around some incredibly complex concepts: Big…"
"My experiance with Catholicism is from a differant angle, as soon as I was old enough to research the genocide of my people (Native American- Mohawk specifically) perpetrated by the whites and tangibly spearheaded by the Catholic church my hated of…"
"There are times I just have to marvel at the human mind. Here in this one discussion, there are all kinds of minds answering the same question for themselves. Some of them have been precisely polished, and some are still quite rough around the…"
""What religion preaches and what it provides is two different things."
Damn straight! It is the out and out hypocrisy of the christ-inanes that just burns my ass. "God" is love, but he hates fags. "God" is good, but he…"
"There are a myriad of "reasons" why weed is illegal, and all of them make as much sense as the christ-inane mythology. As far as I can tell, the reason weed remains illegal is because the mystics don't want people to realize you can…"
"I am also 100 percent sure I am here. Yes, we could be in a computer simulation. Yes, we could be the quarks in a giant's fingernail as well. So what? None of those things make me any less "here".
If those things are true, they are…"
"I had a minute of catholic school, the cruel nun etc. Then my mum punched the nun. No more religion. My son is gay. He was lucky he had an atheist for a mum. Nobody but nobody gets to put him down or slap him for his gayness. Some have tried and it…"
"I am glad for it in the sense that I have the education as a left-over. I think I would have been intelligent no matter where or how I landed. The heavy duty education taught me much, even beyond that which is taught by instructors. A leg up is a…"
Interesting story, some take longer than others to get out...and I agree with you...there are definitely women that I define as a CUNT.
I am so glad that I didn't have to go through the parochial school indoctrination. I…"
"Yes, I am sure. If there were a god, I'd be sizzling in the lake of fire for my challenging of the god of the christ-inanes. I'd be sputtering with flames for my endless years of blasphemy. I'd have been taken to Oz when I witnessed…"
Hi Robert, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists recognise that religion is a fraud used to control vulnerable people;

"Joan, that is so nice of you to include the woman with no support-system!!!! I'm glad it's going okay.

"The Breast Cancer Site
I'm all hooked up, first drip will take 1 1/2 hours. Five hours till finished. I feel fine, not a bit of pain; staff at Cancer Care Northwest have so many skills, patients getting chemo all have positive attitudes,…"

"I don't know if this is the trial you're referring to, and unfortunately, your link no longer refers to an active page, but back in February of 2013, HBO aired a brilliant if disturbing piece: Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God,…"
