There are cunts on facebook that post daily about how "stupid" and "retarded" religious people are. Does it actually directly affect their lives what their workmate/neighbour/associate/acquaintance believes? No.
you really believe that, that religion is totally benign?
i cant even begin to list the myriad of tiny injustices and evils that happen on a daily basis because of religion, id never stop.
but on a bigger scale, opposition to gay marriage was mostly a christian thing, you dont see that attitude as a problem?
seeing as this is something that affects me, i get kinda annoyed when stink cunts tell me religion is harmess
I don't and would never advocate the crossover of religion and politics.

these people do suck, it irritates when i see them unreasonably hating on people just cos they are religious, thats the reason religion is bad, atheism isnt some opposing number, its not the crips and bloods, justifying your unreason and hate with their unreason and hate, is one of the biggest things wrong with theism, leave that to religious sects, cant beat them by becoming like them.
Have to agree with you guys there. Again, each to their own. Everybody should just respect the beliefs of their fellow man and leave it be. If there wasn't a crossover between religion and politics then I'd like to think that this wouldn't even be an issue worth debating...
