Well that's nice. Don't get me started on the Catholics though. THAT one is personal
Whatever the atheists did, it couldn't have been boring compared to a nativity scene. I'd say the atheists did the people of Santa Monica a favor.
The atheists didn't "take all the spots" in the Santa Monica Christmas displays, they won almost all of the spots in a lottery. I guess YHVH/Jesus/Holy Ghost was just too busy to stop the devil from rigging the draw, or something.
You're here five seconds and you swat the argument aside in one sentence.
Banners tacked to a 10x10 foot chain link cage? At least they could have put up a glow in the dark snowman.
What? I only saw one of those. The rest were small sign stuck in a bucket full of concrete.
That's all they had pictured at the Patheos site Recusant provided. I still don't get the chain link box. Maybe pink flamingos could have worked better. Hopefully the Druids will get a shot at it next year and they can do something cool with oak branches and mistletoe.
Atheists can be just as obnoxious as Christians in my opinion. I don't care what people want to believe in or not believe in as long as they keep it to themselves. I see no real difference between the religious crowd and the nonreligious crowd. They both seem absolutely convinced of their own moral certitude. A moral certitude simply requires a lesser degree of confidence in order to act in good conscience. I believe that they believe in what they are saying. It just stikes me as odd that they are willing to accept what they choose to believe based on a lesser degree of confidence and then start proselytizing their beliefs as if their threshold for belief should also be mine.
If Religion has no room for Politics and Politics has no room for Religion, why is anyone making room for either?
They are 2 of the primary means by which TPTB use to divide eWe the sHeep!e.
I've never believed a religion had the right to force its conceptual and ritual beliefs on others.
But I consider that as regards interpersonal actions, people of a religion, if they can get enough people to agree, can set the rules.
