One gas station owner here in South Carolina has a digital readout on all of his pumps that says "One nation under god. If you don't like it, LEAVE!" Sadly, it isn't the first time we've heard this. Many Americans also want immigrants and gays to leave as well.
What is with my state? Just last month, we had a woman hang and burn a dog because it chewed her bible. It really pissed me off and I started a petition because I fear that she is going to receive undeserved lenience. I've heard people around here say things like "what if god really did tell her to do it?". I can't help but think she will be sentenced with the same delusion in mind. The ignorance here amazes me. Btw, if you haven't signed my petition, here is the link http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/woman-hangs-and-burns-dog/
Back to the subject. Christians really believe that they run this country. It is aparent that they want atheists out of it. How can we show them that this is not a Christian nation? We have quoted statements from our founding fathers, we have argued about separation of church and state, we have rejected creationism in our classrooms, and Obama has even stated on several occasions that this is not a Christian Nation. What else can we do to convince Christians that this is a country for everyone?
Even then, you're only good if your Christian, and worse: you're only good if you belong to "our church" and practice "our ways."
In all seriousness, we should challenge them to shut them up, and when they turn to violence reveal them to the world for what they really are: the farthest thing from from what they profess as their faith and practice in life. Far too many people (and I am speaking mostly of the Christians) claim a belief in one thing, but their actions dictate another entirely set of beliefs that are far from the pretty little scripture passages they enjoy quoting to others.

I know of this man. My Sifu, Randy Williams, used to be the body guard for this guy. Seef, as we call Randy, always used to make fun of him and his followers. Now, Seef spends his time training Five Finger Death Punch's guitarist: Zoltan Bathory and helps with security too - a much better job if you ask me.
And all the people that sent him money deserve to be ripped off. Self-imposed delusion is just pathetic.
Why? Some people are susceptible to persuasion. Some people are oddly trusting in others. Some people are... not so swift. Is that really so wrong? Are people like that not useful in society as well? I'd bet there is hardly a person alive who cannot be taken advantage of through some fault or weakness. If it is so pathetic, why not show some pathos?
I think we all understand why this guy needed a bodyguard.
lets kill all the Christians! Run them out of the country. Make them all do exactly as we do!
No, not at all what I mean! That was just to give the Christians back what they are threatening to do to people that do not find any reality in the God myth.
That is the real danger of that "religion of peaceful Jesus" or any religion except Buddhism and Jainism, as neither of those believe in any Gods and have nothing to fight over. Especially Jainism, the one true religion of peace. Jainism actually denies the existence of any Gods as there is no proof whatsoever.
