As an atheist....

I think I have more soul, more heart, more "moral compass" than anyone in the Administration..

I think I even have more respect for Jesus than they do... Egads..

1. Amen to that!

I'm atheist myself and feel the same way.

3. Agree 100%

Don't need to read a certain book, or go to a certain place on a certain day, to be a decent human being!

I tend to think Jesus would not have given his "blessings" to this administration of hypocrites....

4. yeah

 

i absolutely detest Christians, but the basic teachings are good to follow, so i do. just for the right reasons-not due to some magic Beardo in "heaven" that's just waiting to punish me.

being kind is a human trait that most don't exhibit unless under pressure from GODô

5. Yes.

I don't need to see it written down that I shouldn't kill someone before I know it's wrong to kill someone..

7. Actually I believe Atheists are more moral than Christians.

Some Christians (or any religion for that matter) uses their religion as an excuse to knowingly act immorally. Some people believe that if they pray or confess that they committed a sin or wrongful act that it will get "erased" and then they can go out and commit more wrongful acts since they are forgiven if they admit to it and say "I am sorry". Hypocrisy!

8. You have a point.

They can get "forgiven" for horrible stuff totally against the "ten rules" but if they regret ten minutes before they die....It's all good.

9. I remember when the hijackers of 9/11 came to the US

they went to Vegas and drank and had tons of sex (both against the rules of their religion) but since they were going to commit an act in the name of their God they would still get rewarded after they died.
