    @jle

    Okay since you need to have it explained to you.

    The primary motivations in modern human sexual activity are social bonding and pleasure, in that order. The idea that the purpose of sex in humans is for procreation hasn’t been accurate for tens of thousands of years. Even married heterosexual couples engage in it for social bonding and pleasure far more often than for children.

    Back in my home town there’s a small and modest Jewish cemetery that somebody once upon a time decided to vandalize by impaling a bunch of small sharks on the gate. I have no idea what the deal with that was…

    So we can look forward to more ‘Didn’t get what I want so that means I get to destroy things’ er I mean ‘protests’

    Which is a shame, because there WERE some peaceful protests, and some of the peaceful protesters were cleaning up during the day. I don’t happen to agree with them, but I do think we could have a conversation about police use of force. The officer did the best he could do at the time, or at least that’s what it seemed, but

    @tzion

    That’s always a cute argument. It’s a privately funded statue on PUBLIC land which most certainly does not make it a freedom of expression issue because freedom of expression does not give you the right to throw up permanent monuments where ever the hell you want on public land of any sort.

    Well there’s threatening people with death for daring to sit up and say ‘Hey, you know, you can’t really put a religious monument on public land, or in a court house, or at a school’

    @Bearway

    Christians keep pushing to get their prayers, monuments, ect their own special little place in public spaces where they do not, by law, belong. They got away with it for years because nobody dared stand up against them unless they wanted to be hurt.

    These days some people do stand up and invariably get death threats and harassment.

    Christians ARE the bullies.

    @josh

    Atheist and agnostic are not mutually exclusive terms. Most atheists are agnostics. An atheist to be clear is a person who does not believe in god, not one who actively says they don’t exist. Very few atheists say definitively that ‘god does not exist’ but rather ‘there is no evidence for it’.

    “Activism atheist or fake atheist are the ones who try to force this stance on people “

    If that’s your definition then there are no atheist activists period. Let me guess, you’re mistaking ‘forcing’ things on you with ‘being expected to obey the law’?

    @Save

    The way I see them is called ‘reality’. Unless you believe in a massive conspiracy on the part of the judiciary then you’re just going to have to sit back and ask yourself ‘So why do they keep coming to that conclusion over and over again’. It might be because they understand the original intent of the Establishment clause and people like you do not.

    The first sign of a person who doesn’t have life figured out is a person claiming to have life figured out.

    You may sit down now or would you like more?

    @Save

    Yes, and the reason we have been successful in that would be because we understand the Constitution while theists do not, and the courts keep right on agreeing with us. Funny thing that.

    @TheGrtDcptn

    What’s funny is that both you and the person above you seem to be saying that atheists actively say there are no gods. It’s okay, you’ll figure out that’s wrong one day.

  • October 1, 2014 at 5:25pm

    You were ‘never really an atheist’.

    What? The Christians do it, why can’t I? It makes just as much sense.

    And the story of how Jesus ended up being born in Galalee is contrived beyond measure.

  • October 1, 2014 at 5:22pm

    Dear Christians,

    If Allah is not real, why do spend so much time and effort to deny him?

    What as you so worried?

    What do you care what other people believe?

    What business is that of yours.

    Sincerely,

    Somebody who just showed you how stupid your non-argument was.

    Know what would make that even funnier? If atheists actually did strike up conversations with children to proclaim there ‘is no god, heaven or hell’. Which an atheist is extremely unlikely to do since we’re not, you know, like Christians who have to run around throwing our beliefs in everyone’s face then proclaim we’re being persecuted when somebody does anything other than smile.

    But as with ‘God’s Not Dead’, these little fables about how atheists act and the Christians who ‘one up’ these imaginary fiends sure do amuse the theists.

    What part of ‘rational’ do you think enters the mind of a 1st century person in the middle east who earnestly believes he’s been hanging out with the personification of god? Do we really need to get in to the number of absolutely crazy people who believed various figures were ‘god on earth’ and what they were willing to do?

    If you want to stand around crying like a lunatic about how you don’t believe in something we can demonstrate to be real, so be it.

  • October 1, 2014 at 11:09am

    @Upstate

    ‘What part of the constitution says that we can’t have monuments with bible verses on them?’

    You left out ‘on public land including schools, government buildings and parks’

    And that would be ‘The Establishment Clause’

    If you put this statue on your front lawn, nobody could say anything. Well, unless you were in an HOA or something.

  • October 1, 2014 at 11:06am

    @woodyee

    That was the least insulting thing you said.

    @upstate

    So you seriously think these people knew going in that they would be discriminated against? How could they know? Even if they did know, what does that mean? That, oh no, somebody pulled the curtain back and revealed some Christians engaged in discrimination?

    Sunlight is the best disinfectant unless it shines on a Christian or what?

  • [-2] October 1, 2014 at 9:18am

    The bullies are being dealt with. I’m presenting watching one of them, namely you, cry about it like all bullies do.

  • [-4] October 1, 2014 at 9:17am

    ‘I’ll talk about the REAL plight of Christians in other countries while I whine about the fact that Christians in this country are ‘persecuted’ for for breaking laws… It gives me so much credibility’

    If an atheist owned business had refused service to gays, they would have been sued just as fast as the Christians were, so you can quit pretending that it has something to do with ‘being Christian’ shortly after you quit pretending that the rules and laws of this country should not apply to Christians.

    ‘Why is it the majority has to bow down to the minority?’

    We call it the Bill of Rights, or if we vote to take away your guns and freedom of religion you would be cool with that right?

  • [3] October 1, 2014 at 9:09am

    Again with the ‘offended’ line. I realize this talking point makes Christians feel better but it fails two ways.

    First of all, it has nothing to do with what is or is not offensive. It has to do with what is and is not legal.

    Second of all, even if it were just about ‘what’s offensive’? Christians just smile and not, and never speak out against anything they find offensive right? I mean, just look at how they reacted when they heard about the Satanic statue supposedly going up beside their Christian monument in Oklahoma.
