The Salvation Army is not a charity.

They are an evangelical protestant church which uses donated money to actively oppress gay rights.
They have threatened to close tens of thousands of New York soup kitches if they are forced to adhere to civil rights laws when dealing with gay employees.

They spend you money lobbying governments to prevent LGBT rights legislation.

Please research a charity before giving. Consider Doctors Without Borders or Amnesty International.

I’ll tell you what you did with atheists for about 1500 years. You outlawed them from universities, or any teaching careers, besmirched their reputations, banned or burned their books or their writings of any kind, drove them into exile, humiliated them, seized their properties, arrested them for blasphemy. You dehumanized them with beatings and exquisite torture, gougd out their eyes, slit their tongues, stretched, crushed or broke their limbs, tore of their breasts if they were women, crushed their scrotums if they were men, imprisoned them, stabbed them, disembowled them, hung them, burnt them alive. And you have nerve enough to complain to me that I laugh at you.

“Good” book

If atheists agree to follow a book that advocates murder, guilt, fear, intolerance, rape, child abuse, slavery and suffering…
Would you them accept that we have morals?

I avoid the word “moral” in favour of the word “ethical”.  “Moral” has become such loaded language.

I think (and am happy to stand corrected) that ethics says that this outcome is good so the action was good whereas morality says that an action is good if it complies with the moral code regardless of whether the outcome is good or not.  For example: fundamentalist Muslims believe that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were morally good because it was the will of Allah for non-Muslims to die.  A bad action for morally good reasons.  Moderate Muslims disagree because of the suffering that occurred but don’t want to criticise their fellow Muslims so they give them cover (another bad action compliant with moral codes so seen as good).

Ethically speaking, the bad outcome is the only thing that matters so the attack has no redeeming features.

 

Your Bible says:

Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart there is no God. Their work is abomination, there is none that doeth good.

OK so you’re preaching on Facebook are you? Preaching about how we should all follow the work of the Bible are you? Well lets look at the facts then shall we genius…

You are on a computer which was invented by (1) Alan Turing (a homosexual atheist), you’re more than likely using Microsoft Windows which was developed by (2) Bill Gates (an atheist), you’re surfing the World Wide Web which was developed by (3) Tim Berners Lee (an atheist) and you’re on Facebook which was developed by (4) Mark Zuckerbery (an atheist).

Well done on your consistency there brainiac.

Henry Rollins

If I was gay, there would be no closet, you would never see the closet I came out of. Why? I would have burned it for kindling by the time I was 12. Because I know with all certainty in my mind, there is nothing wrong with being gay, and you know it.

You always know the mark of a coward. A coward hides behind freedom. A brave person stands in front of freedom and defends it for others.

Don’t hide behind the Constitution or the Bible. If you’re against gay marriage just be honest, put a scarlet ‘H’ on your shirt and say ‘I am a homophobe!’

 

Hypocrisy of the insane “moral majority” shines through.

Gibbs became pregnant aged 15, but lost the baby in December 2006 in a stillbirth when she was 36 weeks into the pregnancy. When prosecutors discovered that she had a cocaine habit – though there is not evidence that drug abuse had anything to do with the baby’s death – they charged her with the “depraved-heart murder” of her child, which carries a mandatory life sentence.

An Oregon City couple who treated their infant daughter with faith healing rather than take her to the doctor wee sentenced today in Clackamas Country circuit court to 90 days in jail and three years probation.
