Golly! Someone is persecuting poor ole, avuncular Joe Ratz? I'm shocked! I think Joe is confusing persecuting Christians with outrage at his clutch of child humpers and his casting of blame on everything but his own complicity in the…"
"That isn't religious freedom; it's religious LICENSE that he wants so badly, and like a petulant little child when it doesn't get its way, he claims that the world beats up on him.
Could someone PLEASE tell Joe the Rat to wake…"
"He wrote that he was especially thinking of Iraq ",which continues to be a theater of violence and strife" as it aims for stability and reconciliation.
Gee, do you think that might have anything to do with the way that Christians were…"
"When religion is relegated to the private sphere of life, then it musn't be persecuted. While it's part of the public sphere it's a fair target for criticism, satire and protest. So, for the time being, bring on the lions. That's…"
Pretty countryside, E Tennessee. A long time ago my company was going to move me to Kingsport TN. They sent me there several times. People were nice but they kept calling me Yankee. Guess it was my accent. I decided they would not like me if I moved there, let alone I would not be happy, and quit my job rather than relocate to Kingsport. leading me on a path far, far away - now in WA state. The company relocated my division there, but I think then they closed it down, bunch of corrupt corporate minions.
Best wishes to you. I bet there are lots of closet athesits there. The challenge is to find them and how to deal with all of the Baptists around in the mean time.
I hope you

Atheism in Cleveland, home of the Church of god world assembly, lee university, hmmmmmm business is NOT good here for us Patrick, although there is a patch of us here. One of my friends here said he put an evolver fish on his car, and that he gets notes all the time about how they agree the bible is bs. Surprising considering the community we are in, which leads me to believe, there are lots of "us" around here, many who just haven't said it out loud yet. There are consequences here in a big little town like Cleveland. I own a business, and I can't be openly militant about it. But I DO admit openly to not being religious if asked.
What about you? What's it like your way??
Hi Patrick, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that religion is a fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including especially defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
