Because religion is love…
So, your God is good with hate and breaking the law?
Speaking of hate, when I was in Oklahoma this weekend I attended a Halloween parade. There were floats, costumes, sheriff’s campaigning (with their float), a group from mensa (carrying signs that said “We want braaaaains”), OKC Pride, a gym that specializes in Strip Aerobics, and also a group of atheist -
There was a mother with her children standing next to me and Kris. They clapped and shouted as the floats passed by, until it got to the atheist group. When they walked by, one of her children asked her what an atheist was. The mother said, “They’re bad people. They don’t believe in God.” The child said, “They don’t like God and I don’t like them. BOOOOOOO!” Then her mother started booing with them just as loudly and shouted “You’re going to Hell!” Kris, who isn’t even and atheist, and I started cheering and waving at them simultaneously. We were very much alone in this and received some dirty looks, but we didn’t care. It just makes me sad when I think of this woman teaching her children to hate.
Until someone claims to see Christpher Hitchen’s face in a tree stump, idiots must stop claiming that atheism is a religion. - Bill Maher
Bill Maher states his case…and unbaptizes Mitt Romney, dead atheist father in law.
I saw this and took a screencap because I will never reblog something like this and add the numbers they want to see. I believe in, well, something. The universe, something bigger than us. I dunno. But I do know that I am a mere mortal and any claim to understand and speak on behalf of said thing is hubris.
Also, while I do hold a belief of something, this whole “with us or against us” “heaven or hell, nothing else” BULLSHIT mentality pisses me off to no end.
It’s not that I don’t “Love God” or whatever it may be. It’s that I can’t stand the people who claim to represent said God.
EDIT- And I will NEVER reblog anything that gives the slightest hint of guilt to those who are “bad” for not reblogging.
I prefer the Bible’s 2nd edition rules.
I wrote this video with Ben Joseph and it was shot and directed by Vinny. Hope you enjoy it/don’t excommunicate Ben and I!
This is perfect in so many ways.
GENIUS!!! Gygax was also a white man with a beard… Wait, so am I… Hmm…
