OK, but why allow sectarian groups like Jewish Humanists to advertise on the site? Isn't this still selling religion but without god?
Err, do we have them doing this? I wasn't aware that it was a problem. I didn't even think Jews did proselytizing.
Your use of the word 'advertise' makes me think you're referring to the ads around the edges of every page. Is that what you mean? If that's the case, then we have no control of it. That's the stuff that Google Ad Services throws at us. We get Muslim and Mormon ads, as well.
If you mean the ads off to the right which are specifically purchased for this site, such as the one for Dr. Darrel Ray's book ... I dunno. If a Jewish Humanist group wanted to buy an ad there, I wouldn't really have a problem with it. I can see how some people might see it as a bit of a gray area, but I dunno. They're not really a religion, just a philosophy, sort of like the Buddhists. I agree with almost nothing in their philosophy, but that doesn't mean it's a religion.
I think its called "money makin'".
I dont think ANYONE here is going to be taken in by that ratshit so its O.K. to sell them space. they are just beating there dead rat against our brick wall so who cares?
lets just let them wast there $s on this and say "...thanx for the fish".
Amen! Now how about a prayer!
Our Father, who aren't in heaven
Hollow is thy name
Thy kingdom is done,
Free will has come
As there is no heaven
Thank you. Now I have something to utter under my breath when I have to attend the family religious gatherings... trying to talk to that lot is, well, trying...
Oh Farter who farts in Heaven
Hollow is his frame
Thy king in him come
Now his bum is numb
Coz now the Kings are Seven
I got kicked out of church for saying something close to this during Lords prayer while I was a teen, but I cannot remember the exact words, as it was spontaneous at the time.
Though it wasn't as big a deal as feeding the communion wafer to the birds outside the church, which nearly had me excommunicated.
Or so they threatened me.
Sounds like you were a funny hellion, Dog.
Threatening excommunication reminded me. My ex-wife threatened to report me to the bishop for excommunication for telling her son that I didn't trust her anymore. By that time, I was certain that it was all BS, so I said "Go ahead." I think that surprised her, as she never said another word about it.
I actually thought it would be fun to go through the excommunication process and tell them all why I was atheist.
Good one Stanley.
It looks like there's a last name in your profile URL -- that can retain a name someone originally used to join the site. You can fix it: Settings (upper right), My Page (upper left), fix the Address, click Save.
I believe the fix is retroactive to old comments. I found this about requesting Google to remove the search results once they stop linking to A|N:
