Atheists? How do you deal with religious people? - page 19

I'm an atheist. I am uncomfortable around religious situations. I haven't started nursing school yet (14 weeks to go). I'm concerned with being confronted with people that would ask me to "Pray for them" and stuff. I don't... Read More

    I believe only the atheist prophet Carlin is appropriate here:

    You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci. Joe Pesci. Two reasons; first of all, I think he's a good actor. Okay. To me, that counts. Second; he looks like a guy who can get things done. Joe Pesci doesn't &^!% around. Doesn't @*&@ around. In fact, Joe Pesci came through on a couple of things that God was having trouble with. For years I asked God to do something about my noisy neighbor with the barking dog. Joe Pesci straightened that @#&$ out with one visit.

    I noticed that of all the prayers I used to offer to God, and all the prayers that I now offer to Joe Pesci, are being answered at about the same 50 percent rate. Half the time I get what I want. Half the time I don't. Same as God 50-50. Same as the four leaf clover, the horse shoe, the rabbit's foot, and the wishing well. Same as the mojo man. Same as the voodoo lady who tells your fortune by squeezing the goat's testicles. It's all the same; 50-50. So just pick your superstitions, sit back, make a wish and enjoy yourself.

    Like I said, obviously not. However, I do find it funny that you refuse to discuss the bible with an atheist. Especially seeing how that atheist most likely has studied the aforementioned book, along with those from other religions, way more than the 'average' religious person. Perhaps even you.

    Of course, I am just a mere atheist so god forbid you act with any sort of modicum of decency or respect. God forbid!

    Would that be my atheist nature or my black nature or my male nature or my American nature? Which bigotry am I being subjected to here???

    Hmmm. Isn't it about time to close this thread? The OP's question was answered...

    LOL ,just go back and read SEVERAL statements you have made on this entire thread and I think you will figure it out. I mean even the quote you have could be considered offensive to a lot of us "bible thumpers" .

    Hmm, nevermind... Why talk about something? Actions DO speak louder than words.

    This thread has gone far off-course. Several members have posted rude comments, many in the form of personal attacks.

    Our first priority is to the members that have come here because of the flame-free atmosphere we provide. There is a zero-tolerance policy here against personal attacks. We will not tolerate anyone insulting another individual's opinion nor name calling and will BAN repeat offenders.
    Please remember to debate the topic. We promote the idea of lively debate. This means you are free to disagree with anyone on any type of subject matter as long as your criticism is constructive and polite, not rude and condescending.

    Personal attacks are not OK, and responding in kind is also problematic. Please report offending posts rather than responding to them, and let the staff handle it.
