Actually George Bush is a joke. Burning in hell is a myth.

real love

Here's the truth folks, persecution is real and it's aimed at anybody who says humanity is capable of understanding the world and make themselves and it better by the power of their own minds.

This kind of hate speech will never be defined as such and will continue to grow as religious fundamentalism grows. Case in point, a new video game from a christian gaming company is coming out soon about the fight for the world post-rapture and depicts good loving believers killing civilians due to their unbelief.

We need to buckle down, truly understand what we're dealing with here and not waste time with frivolous argumentation. Instead we need to get to the hear of teh matter and that is faith itself as being legitimate and the mythological notions of both god and the bible.

Who wants to suffer in the name of truth? Count me in.

humor

i think it'd be funnier if so many people didn't actually agree with that claptrap she's spouting and then these same people vote to get into office those who can then deny our liberties.

but i guess laughter has to be in order, because what she says is horrendously ridiculous.

In your article "The truth

In your article "The truth about Atheism exposed." you have multiple gramatical errors. For example in the first paragraph, you say "A group that denies the truth about His son Jesus Christ, Our Savior." Now, myself being an english speaker, and a freethinker, I belive you meant to say "Your Savior." But even that is contradictory, for many reasons:
1) Religious fanatasism- creates violent conflicts that result in the death of thousands of people who think Jesus is there to save them.
2) If the person in question died in 33 AD how can he save anything? He would be just a corpse.
3) If he was resserected and did not die, is he the savior of those killed in natural disasters? or does he get to pic and choose?
4) There is no evidence what so ever that he existed, EVER thus he couldnt have died or have been reanimated.

Also, many times in the article, you use the word Atheist, but your desrciption of them dose not seem to fit, thus i must assume that when reffering to an immoral atheist, you must mean "a theist". This also has reasons.
1) Statistically speaking, only .4% of people in prison are atheists, thus your argument is invalid and must be re-hypothesized.
2) Morality isn't based on an immaginary friend, or should not be, no matter what his/her name is, be it God, or Tyler the flying horse shoe monster of Bavaria.

"Unsurprisingly, recent surveys have shown that decent Christian Americans hate Atheists even more than they hate Muslims and black people."
Now I ask why do christians hate? is it because God hates? Just because people have reason and use it, does not give you any reason to hate them, such is irrational. But, alas your belief system is falwed and irrational so why should one expect any diferent from a follower of such?

“'Where do you think American lawmakers got the idea that we shouldn’t murder, steal or rape?' Answer: It’s in the Bible."
From this you must be refering to the Old Testimate, in which it tells you to do such things. So this must mean that Christianity, and the other major religions mus be anti-american, in that they tell the followers of such faiths to break the rules of the country. This is the root of all fanatisism, do you think that the muslims that flew planes into the World Trade Center were not equal in beleif to you? Just because their immaginary friend has a diferent name dosent make you better. You are all equally flawed and irrational.

"The nation would be a bloodbath like Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia. Both fascism and communism are based on Athiesm."

1) Marxist communism, in its truest form, has no ruler so to say under Stalin, russia was a communist country would be greatly away from the truth.
2) Most atheists are Rationalists, what the nazi party did was irrational, and comparable to the evvents that were carried out by christians during the great crusades, and the spanish Inquisition.

"Atheists think they’re cleverer than you."
I think you mean more clever.

"Most criminals are atheists, or, conversely, most atheists (ie all of them!) are criminals"
Didn't I point out that this is flawed logic?

"Far from the warm love of God, believing that they are spinning round on a cold rock in the middle of an empty universe and thinking that they will never see their favorite family pets again in heaven (which of course they won’t since they’re going to hell! Sorry atheists!), atheists wrap themselves up in what they see as a comforting narcotic embrace. They smoke jazz-cigarrettes, inject themselves with heroin and manufacture crystal-meth in their kitchens. Their brains and bodies are ruined."

Really? I used drugs for two years heavily, and after that I sought answers, and whoa look I found truth in atheism.

"
Atheists don’t know anything about Christianity.

How could they? If they did, they’d worship God instead of spending their whole time off their faces on illegal drugs, protesting about just wars and making trouble."

I could have sworn it was Christians that didn't know anything about Christianity.

If you wanna bash on non-belief then do it in the cover of your home. If you would like to be debunked intelectually, http://www.rationalresponders.com.

And may you have a good day, i would like to be one of the first to read the revision.

"Most atheists are

"Most atheists are criminals/ most criminals are atheists:"

From the US Bureau of Prisons, 1997:

Christians Make up 75% of the US population

Christians make up 75% of the prison population

Atheists make up 10 % of the US population

Atheists make up 0.2 % of the prison population.

Section 4 subsection 4

"4. You understand that by using the Web Site, including its Forums, comment pages and chats, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. If you feel offended by the content or parts of the content you have to leave. ShelleyTheRepublican is a satirical and purely fictional character. ShelleyTheRepublican.com is a satirical entertainment web site. "Shelley"* and her friends (Barbara, Sam, Tristan, Micheal, Stacy and Shelley's retarded brother Mike Goodman) are fictional characters (*created 1999). Shelley's opinions are an amalgam of many of the right-wing pundits who are frequently featured on conservative TV and talk-radio. Shelley's views are outrageous, offensive and wrong, but no more so than the right-wing pundits that saturate our media. The purpose of this website is to point out how utterly absurd these right-wing views are. The fact that you had a lingering doubt that she was "for real" meant that you too agree that Shelley's opinions reflect what some Republicans actually believe. Naturally, Shelley is an exaggeration. No single Republican combines the religious mania of Pat Robertson, the brazen menace of Sean Hannity and the hysterical nonsense of Anne Coulter. Shelley is all of these people and more. The fact that you dislike Shelley means that there is hope for us all. It's safe to say that almost all information in all of the articles on this site is false. The web site is designed to be funny. We hope it made some of you laugh. If you don't find it funny, we kindly ask you to leave. If you don't want to leave, we beg you not to ruin the joke for others. If we have upset you we are truly sorry. Despite what Shelly might say, we truly appreciate your comments. Every one of you who commented on the site, you made our day. Thanks. We really mean it! And now our final thought; Anybody can shoot down an utterly preposterous argument. We believe that it takes a great deal more rhetorical alacrity to argue for something that is blatantly insane. A child could find the flaws in Shelley's arguments and most teenagers have a better grasp on reality than that fool Tristan. Imagine what it must have been like to be Scott Mcellan, GW's former press secretary. Like many Americans, I enjoyed watching Scotty squirm on that podium. Just like Scotty, we are working hard to keep you entertained (although we can not always comment because there are ongoing legal proceedings). Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted via the Web Site, including its Forums.

It's true, it doesn't sound

It's true, it doesn't sound much more absurd than what actual right wing fundies say! Shocked
