My husband, M, just returned from yet another deployment.

For some reason, the public thinks that the military is full of uber religious super right-winged people. Here are my honest thoughts about being married to a Soldier while being an independent liberal educated female Atheist.

Did you repost?

A boy writes a letter to God. Dear God, why do you let bad things happen in our schools? God replied “Dear Son, I’m not allowed in your schools.” How many of you will be brave enough to RE-POST

I saw this on Facebook the other day. It really irked me. There are very serious reasons we have separation of church and state. And the people that post this just show how uneducated they are. Religion in school. Which religion? Many will say that majority rules. They are also uneducated about the foundation of this country. It wasn’t that long ago that we as a people had to come to America to escape religious persecution. So if you want religion in school, I want ALL the religions in school. One day we will have a Christian prayer. But the next day we will have a Muslim prayer. And the day after that we will have a Jewish prayer. And the day after that we will have a Buddhist prayer.

The ignorant Christians wont know what hit them.

And on a psychological level, if you think you are actually getting responses back from “god”, do us all a favor and get yourself some psychological help. This is not normal or healthy.

Atheist Challenge: Day 6

6. How do you feel about so-called “militant atheists” such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris?

Who’s calling them “militant Atheists”? Do we call the Pope a militant Christian? I think they are highly educated and very brave that they can be so public about their beliefs. I read one of Sam Harris’ books last year. I just loved it.

I don’t understand why you are so ignorant??

I don’t understand. I don’t FUCKING understand the ignorance of pro-life people. You don’t care about life. You care about oppression and judging and making ridiculous rules for people unlike yourself to follow. Some people don’t share your opinions. Why should YOU get to make the rules for other people and THEIR bodies?? No religious reasons please. They are just as ridiculous and I will think you are a stupid moron anyway. I am an Atheist. I refuse to play by your rules. If you want to make rules for other Christians to obey, go for it. I will show you my “I’m an Atheist card” and I’ll be on my way.

Making pregnant people see a councilor and wait 3 days before having an abortion?? WTF is that about?? You don’t trust women to make the decision to have an abortion but you want to force that person to be a mother??

Making a woman carry their rapist’s baby? Are you FUCKING kidding me?? Who the fuck thought this one up?

Women should be prepared to be raped? SERIOUSLY??? DONT FUCKING RAPE PEOPLE!!! How hard is that?????

This isn’t 1930. Please join us in 2011. I am a women. I am an individual. I have just as many rights to MY body as a man does. And if you think I don’t think so, or if you have EVER raped a women, or if you make others feel bad for their decisions with their bodies, I truly wish your mother had aborted you. Seriously. We as a nation wouldn’t miss you.

Age of Reason: US High School Student Threatened With Death For Opposing School Prayer →

fuckyeahatheism-:

ageofreason:

NORTH LOUISIANA has been described as “the buckle on the Bible Belt” – and not without good reason, as high school student Damon Fowler at Bastrop High School has discovered to his cost.

On the eve of his graduation, the atheist student contacted the school superintendent to let him know that he opposed the inclusion of a prayer at the graduation ceremony. He pointed out that government-sponsored prayer in the public schools was unconstitutional and legally forbidden – and that he would be contacting the ACLU if it went ahead. The school agreed to substitute it with a moment of silent reflection, which was subsequently scuppered by a Christian student.

Then Fowler’s name, and his role in this incident, was leaked. As a direct result:

1) Fowler has been hounded, pilloried, and ostracized by his community.

2) One of Fowler’s teachers has publicly demeaned him.

3) Fowler has been physically threatened. Students have threatened to “jump him” at graduation practice, and he has received multiple threats of bodily harm, and even death threats.

4) Fowler’s parents cut off his financial support, kicked him out of the house, and threw his belongings onto the front porch.

Oh, and the school went ahead and had the graduation prayer anyway.

According to this report, Fowler has become the center of what he terms a “shitstorm”: he has been harassed, vilified, targeted with insults and name-calling and hateful remarks. He’s been told t he’s the devil. He’s been told, “Go cry to your mommy… oh, wait. You can’t”. (A reference to him being disowned by his parents.) He’s been told that he’s only doing this to get attention. A student’s public prayer at a pre-graduation “Class Night” event was turned into an opportunity for the school and community to gang up on Fowler and publicly close ranks against him – teachers as well as students. (Here’svideo). And people seen defending him have been targeted as well.

Here are a few comments on the Bastrop Enterprise news story about the controversy:

I personally see him as a coward.

I hope they [Christians] put enough pressure on this kid to convert him and save his soul from the fire of hell.

If he don’t want prayer at graduation he can stay at home and not come to graduation.

I hope that the little athiest (sic) is offended.

What he is really doing is trying to shove his views down people’s throats.

Satan continues to prowl and is deceiving many in this world.

piece published yesterday by PoliticusUSA points out that Christian fundamentalists have persecuted atheists and agnostics for the past 30 years with accusations that non-believers are aggressive and are “throwing atheism in our faces,” when the opposite is true.

There is a dangerous trend of Christian fundamentalists taking over the government to change the nature of America. It may be in part because in America, like the rest of the world, Christianity is on the decline and the number of Americans claiming to be Atheists, Agnostic, or non-religious has increased by 15 percent leading to an alarming trend of fundamentalists making a last-ditch effort to force Christianity on the country.

The young man who protested prayers at school events is not an isolated case, and around the country young people are standing up to school officials and fundamentalists who “force their religion down the throats” of non-believers regardless of age or station in life. The Constitution does not forbid religious fundamentalists from praying whenever and wherever they please, but it does maintain the separation of the government and religion and it means no public school prayer.

The article concluded:

Evangelical Christian leaders recently conceded in an interview that there were Christians around the country who were prepared for armed conflict to enforce Christianity if necessary, and they claimed the military and Congress had been infiltrated by fundamentalists; it is a foreboding that should frighten every person in America. If any American thinks they are safe from fundamentalist Christians whose intent is replacing the Constitution with the Ten Commandments and its Stone Age punishment (stoning), they are deluded and do not comprehend the level of violence extremists are capable of inflicting in god’s name.

If in America in 2011, one student faces public threats without a theocratic government or the Ten Commandments as the law of the land, imagine the violent Crusade and Inquisition a group of well-armed, angry fundamentalists will unleash if given authority and power.

Last month, an interviewer asked four evangelical church leaders if their intent of using violence to force Christianity on Americans was tantamount to the Taliban in Afghanistan. They replied that, ‘yes, they were the same as the Taliban except they were better armed, better organized, and had the full support of conservatives in positions of power’.

Still think fundamentalist Christians are harmless? You should be mortified.

Sickening.

Absolutely sickening.

Oh wow. Mighty xian of them, right?? And xians wonder why we hate them. Make sure you watch the video.

Why cant we rapture them all again?? The world would be SO much better without the FUCKING RELIGIOUS NUTJOBS.

Dumbass quote of the day

This is the best hateful, paranoid quote I’ve seen about the vote in NY.

The Left is never done or satisfied. End-game is destruction of family, church. With gay marriage legalized, Churches r next target. Watch.

Really, paranoid much? How is the left trying to break up families? We’re trying to allow ALL people to be able to be a family. Nothing happened to your marriage last night. Calm down. And your precious church, it will crumble on it’s own, all religions do, read your history book. Your church isn’t immune to reality either.

God is awesome. He is our deliverer in times of trouble. A friend in times of pain and our comforter in the midst the storm. I love God so much— His Word is the joy of my life.

Am I the only one who thinks this looks slightly creepy?

That mostly makes me feel sorry for ppl. I had an uber religious friend in college. We would have long civil talks about religion and her god. She told me she turned to god to fill a hole in her life, in her spirit. She said she needed his love to survive. I don’t have any voids in my life. When I need love, I hug my father, not some fictional character. So this makes me sad. I think desperate ppl will look for love anywhere, even in an absurd book written over 2000 years ago. Pretty desperate if you ask me. I don’t need to think god is watching me and loves me. I have family for that. I get real hugs. Not imaginary ones.
