They're just going to boycott this site that they weren't planning on frequenting anyway? They have the Omnimax Sky Daddy and they resort to consumer pressure?

Damn, I was hoping for some fire and brimstone! How anticlimactic.

 When you live in backwards land you come up with backwards ideas.  The best way to take us down is to visit our site, stay within the rules, and build a great case for God.  This site is a meeting ground for atheists who do things off of this site, it's not for Christians (although we allow them), he's doing us a favor by not coming.

Oh damn,  you're under a boycott.  They won't buy the products that they haven't been buying already.  With that huge drop in revenue it looks like you'll have to pack your bags and just admit that god exists.  Face the fury of "Team I Believe".

I'm baffled.  (I seem to be doing a lot of that lately.)

Do I understand correctly that this person and their club are going to boycott the Blasphemy Challenge and the RRS forums?  To do that they would have to have been involved in the first place.

Silly.  These people are just silly.

It's On Now

Oh yeah? Well, Mr. Team I Believe(in fairies)...guess what? I hereby commit to boycotting CHURCH! Your churches, your views, and your thoughts are nothing but pure rubbish and mind pollution, and we are all now dumber having been exposed to it. And I am willing to bet that the whole of RRS is going to participate in this boycott I've started. Church is so screwed without our participation. We'll boycott the hell (heaven?) out of it. Oh man, are you ever gonna be sorry now. I am with Team I DON'T Believe(in fairies) and I am officially boycotting Church! Heck, throw Christianity and God and all of that in there as well. It is SOOOO boycotted!! So take that...two can play at this game! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Okay, I'm sorry...I just watched the myspace/youTube video and saw that Sapient has also called for a boycott of Church. That's awesome, we had the exact same idea...and I'm sure so did probably every other rational person who read this letter or saw the video...maybe there is something to this boycott of church and christianity? Could this be a movement that actually catches on with other atheists and freethinkers? I guess we'll see! It's just gonna hurt when all those Christian donations to RRS start drying up, lol. Guess the site needs to start stocking up on ramen noodles, cause lean times are ahead!

Oh my non-god.  They've finally pinned it down.  Without Christians for us to hate so vehemently, we'll have to start going back to believing in god.  I can't stand it man.

 I might have to actually start pratying again, believing in biblical literalism and having faith.  Without Christians to toss my hate and venom at, what point is there to being an atheist!  I think we can all agree that's all we're here for, hating Christians and targeting children with our demonic influence.

We've got a big crisis on our hands there Sapient, but I'll stand with you as long as I can.  If it takes having to quit church and quit donating to religious groups to keep my atheism, I'm with you!

Tossing puppies and kittens into a grinder is evil. Having a site, views and thoughts that might not sit well into your worldview is a fact of life, so just get used to it or start making blues.

Quote:
We are Team I Believe.

Is that like a fundamentalist version of A-Team?

You are in our thoughts
and our prayers and we will continue to pray for you.

Unless you and your team have telepathic powers, I am not concerned.

Quote:
...and I belive in God the Father, Jesus the Son and The
esistence of the Holy Spirit

And you know what? I acknowledge that as your right and I am willing to defend your rights to express your beliefs. I only wish that you could think the same way about the beliefs of others.

All of this is crap.

There's no way that their praying and boycotting will have an affect on this site. I'm not going to worry about it.

If they never did anything else in the first place (except praying to their little god) then nothing should change...

Unless, of course, god puts his magical hand down and kills us all.

But I doubt that'll ever happen any time soon. XD Screw them.
