Hello from Canada

Hello everyone I from Canada. I found this site looking up anti - religious quotes.  I work in Law Enforcement and see a lot people claiming to be religious but murder, rape, rob, sell drugs and do all sorts of other things that a true religious person shouldnt be doing. I have no patience for religion or those who claim to represent it.

I have always been silent about my views on religion but after seeing  Bill Maher religulous I couldn't keep it in anymore. I am not from a religious family and have been to church when I was baptized and weddings and funerals.

I briefly looked over the site and will look over it better later this afternoon. Just wanted to drop a quick introduction.

You work in law enforcement?

OH SHIT, EVERYONE HIDE THEIR STASH!

So how are the doughnuts in Canada?

Never mind me, just being silly in saying welcome. Actually other than beer I am a hermit who likes doing the speed limit and wearing my seat belt. My co-workers think I am a nerd.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

 Thanks Everyone. No need

 

Thanks Everyone. No need to hide the stash its all good.  Good guess Jeffrick but CO in my name doesnt stand for that it stands for the first and last letter in the name of my car. I am north west of you a little bit. Love the vegetarian definition in your signature.

 

Found a really good quote yesterday while looking for them.

"We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children are smart." ~ Henry Mencken"

Welcome!

 

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.
