I am happy for Chelsea, but did you notice the Headline was not about "Mark and Chelsea" being parents, but instead "Bill and Hillary" being grandparents? The story writer made it political, not us, so just climb down off that high horse ok.
Prog Larva..........have we got a spray for it yet?????/
So, is your pentagram an atheist pentagram, or a Christian pentagram?

To all the Believers in this thread commenting, you really not surprising us. The tactics used have been used by so many for so long. Pascal’s wager, god of the gaps, why are you angry at god, how can life not have meaning….. We all heard all of these. And to be fair, they’re about as strong as an argument as “Jesus loves me. this I know for the bible tells me so.”
We’re not ignorant of your beliefs and rationale. In fact, we’re very aware of what you believe and why you believe it. Which is why we don’t. (Speaking generally of course)

Mom, sure I’m open to anything. I don’t profess to know that there isn’t a God. I just believe all the available evidence suggest that there isn’t one. Of course you agree with me. Well I could be wrong perhaps you do believe in Zeus.
Sure I listen in that I constantly seek new information and challenge what I believe. That’s the difference between most believers and most atheists. We seek to be proven wrong, not right. We don’t look for what confirms our beliefs. We don’t use things like confirmation bias and frequency fallacies to trick our selfs into thinking that God is speaking to us. We don’t toss our hands up when we don’t know something and say, must be God. We’re also not angry at God and simply doing it out of spite.
But lastly, and this is the biggest for me. In light of new information, we’re willing to change our minds. Not cling harder to our current beliefs and conjure up things like satan as a reason for our beliefs being challenged. The ability to changes one mind when presented with new information is intelligence. The opposite is just lazy.

“he reason you don’t find it loving is that you are in rebellion thinking that you know everything and don’t want to be told anything”
Actually it’s quite the opposite. Not knowing is what makes me an athiest.

@Mom for freedom , I’d find it just as loving as me telling them that the medicine they’re taking isn’t going to heel them.

How is it that telling people what they believe is wrong and that they shouldn’t believe it, is seen as bitter. But telling someone they’re wrong and they’re going to hell if they dont change, is seen as loving?

Actually, There are no believers in Fox holes. If someone is in fear that they will die, then they’re showing very little faith in an all loving god prepared to take them to Heaven.

Saying Athiesm is a religion is like saying that not collecting stamps is a hobby.

This is a story about an ignorant employee that lacks common sense. Nothin more. Not everything is about us vs them. Sometimes people are just stupid.
