“When they say “I’ll pray for you”, give that wonderful reply: “I’ll think for you”.”

Reblog if you’re an atheist and don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks.

When I was teaching middle school, I straight up told my students I was an atheist, and I might as well have told them that I sacrificed virgins at the altar of the Devil for the parental reactions I got.

Gotta catch ‘em all. Let’s see… during all my life, I’ve been… 23 of these? I’m not sure why everything has the apostrophe-s. I’m not sure there’s one on there that wouldn’t be better suited with just the “s.”

I agree, but I don’t know how it’s possible. How could you raise your child independent of how you live your life? Children want to be like their parents… if you say “I’m an atheist,” they’re probably going to say it, too. Same goes for “I’m a Christian,” but that’s coupled with another issue. If you and your significant other want to go to church, you can’t leave your kids at home… they’re going to be exposed to religion, and it has an overwhelming effect on a child. Now, I know a couple that has two kids, and I don’t know how they’ll identify. Dad is an atheist, and Mom is, no shit, a pagan. Like, “I can’t find my keys, therefore fairies have hidden them” pagan. But she and he get along like gangbusters. Anyway - there isn’t really a tradition that those kids are being raised in, so those kids are more likely to choose a label based on the parent they identify with more. …I’ve joked with them that the only way their kids are going to be able to rebel is to turn into Alex P. Keaton… a young, Christian Republican. I can guide them, if they go that way. I’m not a Republican, not strictly a libertarian (as has so keenly been pointed out to me), but I can guide them.

Being from Kentucky, this happened, but Wikipedia didn’t solve this problem for me… just an unbiased textbook.

Sorry, friend, he believes in the same stupid stuff that Santorum believes in, just not to the same degree. He is, as Penn Jillette said, “Bug-Nutty-Batshit-Crazy.” They all are. Believing that Obama is a ‘secret atheist’ is just a wish upon a star.

Robertson Warns of “Atheist Dictatorship”

Pat Robertson defends Rick Santorum and warns a “secular atheist dictatorship” is on the horizon

Well guys apparently Rick Santorum is only trying to stop the establishment of an Atheist Dictatorship.  Silly me for not realizing this.  And he’s being endorsed by Pat Robertson, a man who hears directly from God, so you know he has to be the real deal!  I started to type a detailed rebuttal to this and then I remembered it was freaking Pat Robertson.  

When we do establish our dictatorship and take over the world, can I be made an ambassador to Germany or Curacao?   I’ve never really wanted to be in politics, but an Atheist Dictatorship changes everything.  When will this man retire and stop embarrassing himself.  Is there no one at TBN that can control him? ~ Kim

Wow. So that little story about my son and me last night has gotten over 200 notes already and is still going. Usually my posts reach a very small audience of non-believers so explanations and clarifications aren’t necessary. This one has gone a bit beyond the usual…
