So as to cut down on any confusion....
I've had the Bible Pounders before tell me that Atheism is a "religion."
And I keep telling them that if they are going to do drugs, spend a bit more and get the "GOOD DRUGS!"
Here is the definiation of atheism so when they come calling you can clear the air about it. Please feel free to cut and paste this. I've included the reference too. Just for more ammo....atheism

Today I did something that I only do for weddings and funerals: I went to a church.
A “relation” was celebrating their birthday and chose to do so at the church they attend. That’s fine. The gathering wasn’t religious in nature. No praying, or speaking in “tongues” nor was there any snake handling.
Having to answer “natures call” I headed off to the restroom.
Just before getting there I saw a flyer for the church’s summer camp for kids. Of course it was religious. But what… Continue

Do religious people scare you?
Do their actions or their mannerisms raise the hair on the back of your neck?
A few years ago I saw a well known TV Preacher at a national political convention.
He had his "entourage" with him. I guess that’s the nice way of saying, “pack” like a pack of wolves.
The "vibrations" they gave off were the kind that made a person become very "vigilant." I’m saying that because these are the feelings I was… Continue

Seems that the bible pounders just want to control every aspect of your life.
They even want to know what you’re doing in your bedroom.
Funny thing is, they don’t want the government to pry into their business.
But because “God” is on their “side” they assume they have the right to stick their noses into everyone personal and private business.
It’s the same with the abortion issue.
They honestly believe it’s their duty to… Continue

I am an American.
On top of that I am also a Texan.
I was born in Texas and can trace my family coming to Texas in the 1850’s.
Most of my family came from the United Kingdom. The rest came from Europe.
Some have been in the United States since the early 1700’s. Some fought in the American Revolution against England.
For what I can tell, they all were “Christians” of some sort or another.
I am an Atheist.
I’ve been an Atheist since the age of six.… Continue

Something was brought to my attention a bit ago. Some Republican politician is trying to get a "Christian" prayer thing passed that says anything with a payer in the military has to be "Christian" or something along those lines...
Yet again another Goodie Two Shoes is trying to jack with the military because they think they can.
So, I have offered up my own prayer.....
I call it:The Military Secular Atheist… Continue

I live in Texas.
I’ve always been an atheist.
All my life I’ve had to put up with these bible pounding clowns who think their “Manure” does not stink.
Well it does.
I’ve seen these clown just ruin a college.
At first there were no preachers on the Board of Regents.
Then one day there was one.
The next thing you knew all the Regents were preachers.
That lead to the demise of the college.
It lost it’s… Continue

I’ve been told that Saudi Arabia is the most sexually repressed countries in the world. I believe it.
A friend of mine who is a women set up a page on one of the social networking sites. The company has sites around the world. She did it as a lark. A joke. On languages she spoke she checked almost every box listed. She was a little creative with her profile and picture.
She toyed with it for a few days and went off to do something else. Well she came back to check it after about a… Continue

Pole-Dancing Miss USA a Conundrum for Muslims
Why?This is America
Pictures of her competing in a Detroit radio’s station’s “Stripper 101” pole dancing contest held in 2007 have hit the net.

Sarah Falin...er…Palin was being interviewed and said something to the effect that the United States laws were based on the Ten Commandments.
This only proves that the quality of the American Education system is in very bad need of repair.

It seems that my face book account has been closed. They won’t tell me why. However, on their “Ask” page it does list some things. But nothing to indicate as to why my account was closed.
Now, I’ve not stalked anyone.
I’ve not threatened anyone.
I have however, been threatened for my lack of religious “beliefs.”
I just wonder if those individuals had their accounts closed as well?
Now did I post thing like I post on here?

Well now it looks like the Gun Toating Bible Pounders got busted by the FBI because they were planning a “revolt” to “save” America.
But fortunately, we were saved from them. For the time being that is.
Might I go out on a limb here and wonder if Sarah Palin is their poster girl?
And just why do they think (I’m using that term loosely) they have the right to “save” us?
I sure didn’t.
And I’m a vet.… Continue
