    @Molon

    I am quick to point out how completely sick it is to run in with confirmation bias giving credit to a god for ‘saving people’ when two people are dead and four people are injured. That is more than worthy of being ‘put down’ as you call it.

    @barber2

    I have a ‘thing’ with people being out of touch. Nobody would praise any human being who had the power to stop two people dying and four people getting hurt, but didn’t do it. Nobody would say ‘thank goodness after standing around doing nothing this person finally stepped in to put a step to it, what a great person’, yet when it’s god? Logic like that flies right out the window.

    @wigone

    No, I assure you, I believe in no being with the capacity to prevent cruelty and pain that turns a blind eye to it. I particularly don’t believe in a being that is called ‘just’ ‘good’ or ‘merciful’ that does it.

    Which one? The one where you think you can read the mind of a person deranged enough to bring a gun to school and start shooting people? You have no idea why he didn’t shoot her, if he tried to, or any of it. Do we even know if this was a teacher he knew and had become friends with?

    @Mooz

    You cannot simultaneously ‘praise god’ for saving people in an emergency situation and give him a free pass for the people he didn’t save unless you’re being a hypocrite or disingenuous about it.

    Only among peoples with lack of access to information and freedom.

    Right, a large box capable of sending and receiving signals that can be brought inconspicuously in to an airport.

    This will end well.

    The right person, at the right time, can mean everything.

    “I am glad God looked out for her”

    Once again, running in to give god the credit for ‘looking out for her’, pity he wasn’t kind enough to bring her in before anyone was killed.

    God, the archer that misses a thousand shots but is praised for his amazing skill when the first time one hits the mark.

    How many times must I destroy this stupid argument? The Bill of Rights applies to all levels of government, and if you want to say it doesn’t, then tomorrow your state police can arrest you for being a Christian, without evidence, torture a confession out of you, and hold you forever without representation by a lawyer or ever taking you to trial.

    The entire point of the Bill of Rights is that nobody, at any level of government, nor any private group, or any individual, can deny you your rights. At the same time you cannot violate the rights of others. Your rights end where others rights begin.

    ““Dinosaurs” are cited several places in the Scripture and the only way”

    It’s cute that you believe a creationist lie, but you really should look in to that a little better.

    Besides that you’re just coming up with the same absolute crap theists always come up with to explain away how the earth can be 4.54 billion years old. You are, in essence, just making crap up as you go.

    Actually I couldn’t put promote atheist ideas on city property either. It works both ways.

  • [2] October 24, 2014 at 1:24pm

    The Establishment clause.

    You asked.

  • [-1] October 24, 2014 at 1:24pm

    Okay, inviting a religious school to do this without explaining they could not use religious messages was kind of stupid, but hind sight is 20/20 I guess.

    Perhaps, unlike most of you ‘legal scholars’, the ALCU recognizes a case that it probably wouldn’t win based on the actual law. If only the people who insist private businesses are somehow allowed to break anti-discrimination could figure this same thing out.

    You can quit being an idiot about this whenever you like. The hospital may have messed up but that is not indicative of Texas in general. They were caught off guard and made some mistakes, which presumably other hospitals will have learned from by now.

    This kind of makes me shake my head. Even I know how to do the math problem involving finding missing people that were last seen in cars if you know the point of origin and the destination, it’s a car, it has limited routes.

    Nah, those idiots would be dead fairly quickly. The people who are prepared will survive longer but after that… When it’s down to nothing but survivors the overwhelming majority of these ‘bunker people’ would be the next victims.

    As with all such shelters, if zombies were real, they’re not half as dangerous as people.

    Lifelong dream of imitating a narwhal cut short.

    Oh so sticking up for the rights of others and expecting them to be treated like human beings is deviant behavior now. Rational thought was particularly hilarious because you haven’t demonstrated a capacity for that yet. You’re demonstrating the mentality of a screaming five year old being told he can’t have candy by a responsible adult, namely me.

    Thanks for admitting that you’re the deviant by the way.

    And much like your assumption that I’m a professor, you’re an idiot if you think I support socialism, or whatever else you claiming there.
    Search out my own ideology? Really? As opposed to just blindly following a religion? Search out? You mean like, oh, educate myself in science and find out the way things work? That sort of thing?

    Oh and I know we’ve never met, if we had then maybe you’d quit being so completely moronic with assumptions you make about me. You’ve only been completely wrong three times now, I wonder if there’s anything at all you could actually get right about me.

    I’m sorry, I don’t fit the make believe ideas about me that you’ve come up in with what passes for a mind over there, but if you want to keep going, feel free, because I think you’re going to get tired of digging this hole long before I get tired of watching you dig it.

    @lancertx

    No, Christians are forcing themselves out of business by breaking anti-discrimination law. By the way, if atheist business owners were similarly engaged in discrimination, guess what would happen? They’d get in trouble too.

    So wedge this firmly in your narrow little mind: You are being forced out of business for engaging in discrimination, nobody gives a rats rear end what your religious beliefs are, because they mean less than nothing under the law.

    The only tantrum throwing going on is on the part of Christians screaming that laws and rules that apply to everyone else should not apply to them. You are not exercising ‘rights’ by throwing up monuments or banners on public spaces, you are violating others rights and you are breaking the law. You are not exercising ‘rights’ by discriminating against people, you are violating peoples rights and breaking the law.

    The law applies to you the same as it does everyone else and you’re going to get used to that idea one way or another because the time has passed where you could bully and threaten people in to silence.
