General Religious Discussion / Re: "The Atheist...It Burns"
« Last post by One Above All on Today at 12:39:25 PM »
Suppose the police were Satanists and put "In Satan we trust" on their police cars. I'm sure the atheists would just laugh and not complain at all. It only seems to be Christianity that gets attacked and complained about.

LaVeyan Satanism. Look it up.

Not one atheist has complained about the statue of Baphomet that was put up by the Supreme Court.

In light of their decision to put up a statue of ten christian commandments, it's a matter of equality. I understand if the concept seems foreign to you.

Little nitpicky ticky-tack stuff like this should not offend one atheist one iota.

No, he was calling atheists idiots. He meant that he doesn't need to discuss religion that he doesn't believe in with idiots. I just asked him now. He clarified it for me. He said "those idiots are wasting their time discussing things they don't believe in."

Ask your friend how he learns about new things.

Because your friend sounds like a close-minded douchebag.

You sure this is an actual person and it isn't that Atheist Caricature that you keep rattling around in your head?

Do you guys really find it that hard to believe that some atheists just aren't interested in discussing religion?

You might disagree but I feel that a "true atheist" wouldn't need to study the Bible because they don't believe it.

Care to lay out your logic, Skep?  This may come as a shock, but there's benefit in knowing about others' beliefs, even if you don't agree with those beliefs.  Remaining ignorant about others' beliefs is only useful if one intends to hold prejudices against those people.

Oh...wait, now I see why you said this.  :-\

I have an acquantaince (not really a friend, just a guy at work) that is an atheist but he won't participate in discussion. I asked him to join this forum and he said, "I don't need to waste my time talking about things with idiots that I don't believe. It's a waste of my time." He even called you guys idiots and he's supposed to be one of you!

What did he say when he called us idiots?  The quote you gave calls theists (the people he doesn't believe) idiots.

So I wonder why you guys seem to love discussing this stuff.

Why do you?

The greatest thing to open up peoples minds to this religious nonsense is the net.  Long may it live.

My mother couldn't believe I have the biblegateway app. She said, "But, you're an atheist?" I also have a Qur'an and Book of Mormon app.

I don't study the Bible for any other purpose but to use at places like this. I read them to argue with people like you. If I were to argue against a group of lawyers about the law then I'd read up on whatever law subject in discussion.

I love to argue; I've stated that countless times here. Others like to educate, and show atheists they can be themselves in a place like this.

If you don't understand any of that by now -- why are you here?

http://www.salon.com/2015/07/28/fox_news_ainsley_earhardt_cant_even_bear_to_hear_atheist_arguments_anymore_im_so_tired_of_protecting_the_minority/

Quote
On “Outnumbered” Monday, “the ladies” were discussing Stone County, Missouri Sheriff Doug Rader and his decision to put a banner-like “In God We Trust” bumper sticker on the back of his deputies’ police cruisers, but the conversation quickly became too accepting of atheist positions for “Fox & Friends First” host Ainsley Earhardt.

Judge Andrew Napolitano introduced the segment with a clip of Sheriff Rader on Fox News saying that he was “angry” that his department’s been singled out for criticism, when “there must be hundreds, thousands of departments” who put giant “In God We Trust” bumper stickers on their patrol cars. “Where’s our patriotism?” he asked. “Anytime someone wants to be patriotic and make a symbol these days, they’re attacked.”

Given that the symbol most people are defending these days isn’t just un- so much as anti-patriotic, the nature of the sheriff’s complaint feels a bit thin — except to the majority of the panelists on “Outnumbered,” who agree that it’s perfectly fine to collapse theistic affirmations into the category of “patriotism” and condemn anyone who doesn’t.

“How do you think they purchased those cruisers?” Andrea Tantaros asked. “With Monopoly money?”

“What, God paid for them?” Julie Roginsky replied.

“It says ‘In God We Trust’ on the money,” Tantaros said, as if that fact justified the intrusion of theism into all things economic.

Roginsky replied that she’s in the minority on the panel in thinking that “In God We Trust” doesn’t belong on currency because it could offend atheists, causing a number of co-hosts to appeal to the bench. “Judge, she’s the minority!” at least two of them can be heard repeating.

A fed-up Ainsley Earhardt argued that “the majority of Americans, 77 percent, believe in some sort of God,” whereas only “23 percent are atheist or agnostic,” which to her mind meant “the majority should win in this case.” By way of explanation, she claimed that atheists shouldn’t even be offended by the phrase “In God We Trust” because they don’t believe in gods.

When Roginsky tried to challenge her, Earhardt yelled, “What about the majority? I’m so tired of protecting the minority! What about the rest of the country?"
