A cousin-in-law on Facebook (I know, I know) put up  something that a friend of hers said about the tragedy happening because everyone does not put wonderful, loving 'god' first in their lives, blah, blah, blah.  I, of course, couldn't keep my mouth shut and said it had nothing to do with religion, moral people are moral people, and this guy was obviously insane.  Then the cousin-in-law said she believes 'god' has something to do with EVERYTHING. 

WHAT THE FUCK do you say to that?  REALLY?  Her 'god' had something to do with that?  And WHY would you worship something that had the power, but didn't do anything to save those babies?????

I know, we talk about this all the time.  I really just want to be a hermit.  I hate dumb people, and there are WAY too many of them.

I feel your pain..

In the words of the redneck comedian, Ron White. "You can't cure stupid."

The next time someone lays that "god isn't allowed in school any more" crap, lay THIS on 'em!

i was pleased to see this on fb:

Thanks Matthew for posting that graphic from FB.

I love it! I definitely posted it on Facebook. 

Sadly, a lot of kids who need to be saved FROM Jesus still live with those Adventist relatives.  Perhaps they could make it on their own, but it will be a lot easier on them with you in their lives as a role model.

I agree Booklover - moral people are moral people. You don't need a god to have morals or ethics.
Great discussion.

Yes, exactly my problem too booklover. That's why I made a discussion on when I come out Atheist people think I am morally depraved and I'm just a terrible person. They assume the worse about me.

We are good without god - but somehow they think you have to have god to be good.

I would expand on this.  It seems to me that people without god are "gooder" on the whole than the god freaks. 

There seems to be a feeling that if you have religion, then you don't really have to practice what you preach.  The most "unchristian" acting people seem to be the most devoutly christian. 

glad you posted this Mel.  i've been upset all day at the "get god/jesus back in the classroom" facebook shit.  Huckabee and Fisher spew this vile nonsense and people actually buy it.  grrrrrr!!!
