"sounds a little like a christian version of "the gods always take their favourites", only using anger instead of favouritism. My parents always use to say "you're going to make Jesus cry", but that's more psychological…"
"I think that when I told my father that law as well as the one about stoning gays he said that "Jesus changed all that" and therefore none of it matters anymore. I always like to poke fun of his faith and ask questions like "Why…"

Greetings, faith the atheist! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus for a year. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Faith of Atheism, that sounds so good.
Are you originally atheist without any previous religious background, or a religion leaver? I am so happy to find atheists, as we all share the same thought, and all of us all over the world are one, as all of us are surrounded and targeted by the evil religious powers, and with their evil intents of religious slavery, tyranny, exploitation aiming at controlling, and governing the independent and the enlightened or the illuminated free thought.
Thanks for the add! Sorry I'm getting back to you a little late. I was off the board for a bit, writing my thesis and pretty busy with the big ol' paper from hell. 13 hey! Good for you. Like you, I was about 9 or 10 when I started thinking the bible stories were seeming more and more like the santa clause and easter bunny stories.. and then there was the faith-sanctioned hate and all, which just didn't make sense to me. So un-christian, heh.. Anyways, thanks for saying hi!
