    When did you stop beating your wife JGraham? Would you like to unload your question and try asking something honestly instead of trying to compare actually expecting Christians to obey the same laws as everyone else to the horrors of a totalitarian country?

    I mean I know you you have a persecution complex and all but you are not being ‘wronged’ because you have to obey the same law as everyone else.

    My definitions are given by common understanding of the meaning of words. Faith is belief without evidence. If you have evidence, you do not have faith because you do not require it.

    You do not posses, by virtue of being a religious person, a magic power that lets you ‘really understand’ something that people like me are incapable of. You are no more, and no less, capable of looking at anything and figuring out what it means and the only real substantive difference is what we’ve applied our respective lives to looking at, because we can’t look at everything.

    Your daily dose of nightmare fuel.

    Faith is, by definition, belief in something without evidence. It doesn’t actually matter two bits what it is or how strongly you believe it, just that you believe it without evidence. What you describe as a belief system may be based on that faith, but that doesn’t change what faith actually is.

    Most atheists do not claim god does not exist, they state that there is no evidence for anything of the sort, and therefore it is perfectly justified to not believe in it just the same as there is no reason to believe in a thousand other things for which there is no evidence.

    With regards to my ‘scope’ on spiritual matters? Spiritual is just another term for supernatural, and there is no evidence for anything supernatural either, including gods, ghosts, psychic powers, magic, or a thousand other things.

    @Rayblue

    Think about it for a minute. How likely are you to ‘change your mind’ at the last minute? Why would anyone else be different?

    @roch

    Oh it’s so cute that you believe the creationist lie about Darwin recanting. It’s not true, I’m sorry, you were lied to.

    @Cleophus

    Oh I’m correct quite a lot, because I only talk about things when I actually know something about them.

    And I’m aware that theists exploit peoples fear of death, hovering over them like specters, it’s a rather disgusting thing to do, but it’s okay I promise nobody is going to do that to you because people like me are better than that.

    And it doesn’t change the fact that the majority of people go to their deaths believing precisely what they believed while alive.

    @LCDR

    Keep trying, you’ll have something besides woo woo.

    @LCDR

    Just keep spewing religious woo woo. It really helps.

    @GrtDcptn

    Oh I have no problem treating people with respect and dignity.

    Except of course when they’ve demonstrated themselves to be unworthy of it.

    Where upon the king ignores them and if by chance they make it out of the valley people scream ‘hail to the king’.

    The vast majority of people do not have sudden conversions at the end of their lives, they go on believing what they have believed most of their life right up until they do actually die.

    I could similarly entertain myself watching television or playing a video game. It would accomplish just as much.

    No come to think of it, it would actually accomplish a tiny bit of something… Since I would be a consumer of products and presumably make money for somebody.

    “The gay-agenda tshirt was removed, which I do understand. So the Jesus painting must be removed, which I do understand.”

    I understand both of these things as well but they are removed for entirely different reasons. The Jesus painting would not belong there under any circumstance no matter what.

    Yeah, that’s totally going to happen and the only thing holding it back is the fact that the people who want to do such a thing are waiting until they’ve forced Christians to actually obey the law.

    @DLV

    Still trying to find a way to lie your way around the law I see.

    ” It takes as much or more “faith” to believe there is no deity than to believe there is one.”

    No, it really doesn’t. Faith is belief in something without evidence and saying that you don’t believe something because there is no evidence does not require faith.

    “They should still fight the atheist and ACLU, there is no separation of Church and State anywhere in the Constitution.”

    Another true believer in the massive conspiracy by the courts.

  • [-7] October 20, 2014 at 5:21pm

    Which is amusing, because atheists are not typically the group trying to make people miserable.

    “There is no separation of Church and State in the Constitution”

    So rush down to the Liberty Institute and tell the lawyers all about it. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you because what you’re saying seems to lose in court over and over and over again.

    Let me guess, massive conspiracy on the part of dozens of courts with different judges across the whole country right?

  • [-1] October 20, 2014 at 5:18pm

    I drive past churches with religious messages all the time.

    Do you see me complaining about it? Put whatever you want on private property as long as its not a public safety risk.

  • [-10] October 20, 2014 at 5:14pm

    The fact that you think somebody needs to ‘repent’ because they want to treat fellow human beings with respect and dignity says a lot about you.

    And not a bit of it is good.
