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.
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.
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.
Ummm….ever heard of Stephen Colbert, Ricky? Just this past Wednesday, Colbert was sporting some of that Catholic Ash as a forehead adornment, while spouting his liberal propaganda.
Fuck You, Mr. SAINTorum.
I am a liberal and a Catholic.
h8 u Santorum
Jesus was the biggest lefty liberal commie hippie to ever walk
the earthon water. There is no such thing as a conservative who believe in Jesus’ teachings: Turn the other cheek, give ALL of your money to the poor and ask for nothing in return, don’t kill, don’t judge, etc.
^Yes. YES, that commentary.
Real Christians imitate Jesus, not the Church.
