Being atheist does not mean I obsess over religion

It seems whenever I check in on American atheist organizations' social media pages or atheist Facebook groups there is post after post centered on religion, whether it is about politics, religious fanatics or religious quotes on public property. I've always felt out of touch with this "obsession with religion" presented by atheist organizations because, having identified as atheist for over a decade, I've never obsessed over religion but rather just lived life.

Were pro-life Women forbidden from the Women's March?

Should women with signs saying "I want to have a baby! " been at the women's march.

That would be a different topic wouldn't it?

Sarcasm fully intended.

Pro-life organizations were not permitted to partner with Women's March, yet Council on American Islamic Relations was.

Pro live orginizations weren't forbidden.

Council on American Islamic Relations were.

Why do you thunk that was?

Perhaps women want control over their thoughts without men controlling their bodies and some women who "Wanna babie."

Deep sarcasm.

Source?

Pro-life group dropped. "The Women’s March on Washington released a statement Monday evening on Twitter and Facebook: 'The Women’s March platform is pro-choice and that has been our stance from day one.'" - https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/womens-march-anti-abortion-par...

Official sponsor/partner list for Women's March. A few Council on American Islamic Relations groups are partners, as well as other Islamic groups. - https://www.womensmarch.com/partners/

You claim you don't obsess over religion- yet your posts dwell over religious arguments.

Well it WAS a woman's rights march.  There is nothing about being "pro-life" that is consistent with woman's rights

You're not a woman Bertold. How do you know :P

There once was such a time, Bert et al.

From 1923 when the Repubs introduced the Equal Rights (for women) Amendment in the US Congress and until the 1970s, the Repubs supported it and the pro-KKK Dems opposed it.

In the mid-1970s, the two parties changed their positions 180 degrees.

I don’t know a reason for the change, except in the late 1950s the far-far-right John Birch Society and the GOP’s western conservatives called then-President Eisenhower a communist and started expelling moderate eastern Repubs. 

Amend that post slightly.

The Dems stopped being pro-KKK when Franklin Roosevelt was president, I think in his third term during WW2 when black leaders demanded work in the war industries. Soon after WW2 Harry Truman racially desegregated the military.

In 1951-52 when I was in the Navy I first met and talked with negroes. I was an electrician and in the engineering dept we called ourselves the black gang. Deck apes called us snipes.

Lauren, you are perhaps a woman, or a tranny, and should know. Why don’t you?
