And of course if I go into a woman's locker room I'll get turned on and try to jump the women, it happens anytime I see any woman I find attractive. Much like how straight woman have to throw down every guy she sees and do them. Right then and there.
I dunno, I don't think she could fill out the forms for both of you. Then pen ink might get the gay and we all know no one wants that! What happens if a straight person got to close to it? Think of the horror....

As far as the baby goes, you will only be doing the baby a favor by giving it to a loving, good, Christian family that will teach it how to be a good, moral person and obviously you and your wife can't do that.. homosexual heathen children... awful!

I don't know about anybody else but anytime I find a person attractive, I totally jump their bones. Grocery store, mall, park, even work. We get it on like Donkey Kong.

(congrats on the baby BTW, meant to say it earlier and forgot!)

ROTFLMAO you ladies are awesomely hilarious.

I'm not quite gay... I'm a bit in between, will there be a specific form for me? Oh, and I had sex before marriage, I'm assuming there will be something for that too....

I'm envisioning myself with a series of tattoos on my forehead displaying all the different things I've done or am that he'd want me to be listed for.... least we'd be colorful people!

Oh crap. If sex before marriage is going to get me onto a list, I'm screwed. bahahah

Speaking of tattoos, there's probably a list for that that I'll have to register on.

I'm thinking something more like Girl Scout vest with badges on them. After all, there's always a chance you could be prayed straight. :-)

Well maybe there is a loop hole for that. If you've been currently married for x amount of years or something.

I'm definatley (sp) on the tattoo list. Good think I took out my tongue and navel ring, one less list I need to be on.

This is foolishness. I'm a Christian and I think this guy is nuts. I know lots of agnostics/athiests and never has any of them expressed "hate" towards God.

Someone made a comment about zealouts like him turning more people into Athiests, and I believe it. People like him give Christians a bad name. Trust me, most of us mess up daily and know it. Ugh.

I would question a person who's faith could be shaken by this idiot's words so much that they would convert to Atheism. I say this because so many Agnostic/Atheists had to really soul search to come to the decision to believe in nothing or the unknown. It's not always as simple as people think and it involves just as much thought usually.

I agree with you Jillian. It was during that searching process of finding what you believe that I did find my faith. It took me years. It goes either way, some find faith, others find something else.

Oh dear. No wonder people think Christians are nuts. I know most of YOU all do not, but yeah, I've had some pretty negative things said to me because of people who supposedly share my faith. What a moron.

I read this the other day. It won't pass. It's unconstitutional. We are allowed to express our freedom of religion (or if you don't have one, then lack of one) without being "bullied" or called out on it. It's absolutely ridiculous and this guy is a nut job.

I feel this way: It's not our right (as people) to decide anyone's relationship/lack of relationship with God. For those who believe, they know that it's up to THEM and THEM alone to have a good relationship with Him. It's not going to help anyone by putting Atheists on a registry. That's the dumbest thing I think I have ever heard. Same with college in IL that wants you to mark your sexuality. What does it matter? Why can't equality mean equality?

I feel that people feel that they are entitled to so much because of things in their familie's pasts. I will tell you, I feel like straight white males are going to be the minority and by trying to make everything so "PC" we're actualyl taking away the integrity of equality at all. I will say I cannot help what someone 100 years before me did (thankfully, my family didn't do anything too horribly stupid); it doesn't mean *I should be punished for *their mistakes. Although, usually one is punished for the sins of their father.

The ONLY way to fix this is for everyone to stfu and mind them and theirs and stop worrying about everyone else. (As long as one isn't hurting anyone else, of course... Obviously YOUR being an atheist (whoever) doesn't hurt ME, My not being one doesn't hurt YOU, that kind of thing)

LOL I'm SURE there was no pun intended there!

Maybe you'll be "granfathered" in and not have to blacklist your name if that happened. HAHA.

I'll be on a register for giving a gay couple a baby. I know for sure this, because a neighbor of mine asked me while we were talking: "Wait, this baby isn't yours?" I said "No, I'm a surrogate" She proceeds to ask a dozen other things and finally I tell her the truth, that it's for a gay couple. I'm not ashamed, but SHE got red, blushed and said "How could you do this for MEN?" Like men are all ***-hole child molesting freaks, and (gasp) GAY men at that! I guess her husband doesn't count as a "man" since he's married to her and obviously only gay men molest and hurt little kids. (not really, just sarcasm there).

I told her that I felt that it's not up to me to judge someone based on a sexual preference, how they will be as parents. I felt that THESE PARENTS that I picked were the best parents and it didnt' matter what they do as 2 adults behind closed doors. She didn't like my answer. So, I said "what you think because you are a woman, only WOMEN can raise children?"

I hate to say it, but there are plenty of straight people who should never have kids, plenty of husbands (married to females or single) that are abusers/child molesters, plenty of MOTHERS and other females who are abusers/molesters..... and then there are plenty of gay/lesbian people who are excellent parents with excellent morals and values. I can't believe she suggested that because my IP's are gay, that she is any better than them and that I made a "bad" choice. I felt like punching her in the face, but I kept cool. lol

Umm...do you hate leprechauns? No? Why not? Because they don't exist and it's impossible to harbor emotions towards something imaginary?

I'm not sure what is so about her comments. She is saying exactly what others have said. Most atheists don't "hate" God, because they don't believe in him.

I don't get your need to down others for their beliefs. Shoot, I share a lot of your thoughts on the subject, but I don't feel the need to compare it to leprechauns and mock someone's belief just because I don't agree with it.

Back down, hon, I wasn't attacking anyone. I was all about her statement because it was naive and borderline irresponsible. I only wanted to draw attention to her post so that she'd understand why people who don't believe in her god could never "hate" her god.
If I were in a grocery store and started "praising Kirstie Alley" for the loose change I found in my purse people would look at me like I was nuts. If my thinking religion is kinda loopy is considered "mocking" then it's certainly not my intention.
Anyhoo, not gonna hijack this thread to turn it into a Jesus vs. Shel thing, just wanted to pose a comparison that the poster might more easily understand.

Its unnecessary for you to respond the way you did to her. She didn't write anything wrong. Its people like you who give Atheists a bad name - just like its guys like that who give Christians a bad name.

Well, that's just silly. I don't represent or speak on behalf of all atheists. However, she calls herself a Christian which claims to be an organized religion but she honestly thinks that one person's statement could "turn people" away from God? I was only trying to clear it up for her.
Incidentally, I would never think the "pastor" gives anyone a bad name. He's only speaking on behalf of himself, not a church or group of people.

Again, let's not steer this into a religious thread and stick with the original article that started this thread, k?

Actually ONE outspoken person can color an entire group of people negatively. Thats how it is. As for her "calling herself Christian" um... passive aggressive much? She IS Christian, and many Christians I know feel the same way she does. You aren't better than her for being an Atheist. And as an outspoken Atheist you DO and WILL color peoples perception of Atheist by your bad and elitist attitude.

Dave Chappelle is a black man. He tells filthy jokes. Therefore, all black men tell filthy jokes.

Just as ridiculous as the notion that Dave Chappelle represents his entire race it is just as ridiculous that I represent an entire belief system. If a Christian does not even understand the basic premise of atheism then that person should be corrected. I told her exactly how it works. That's about all there is to it.
Now, if you want to use my words as an excuse to hate an entire sub-section of people then feel free to do so but I'm certainly not censoring myself just because someone wants to throw the word "offended" into the mix. I mean really, I haven't even challenged this person - I just directly addressed one of her sentences. Is this really the only thing you have to harp on today?

If you know an atheist, then you know someone who doesn't hate god. We don't do that. Just wanted to make this point crystal clear.
