The thought of a theocratic America is really starting to scare the shit out of me...lol. Do any of you see it going in this direction more? Or less? What will you do if you wake up one day and find that America (if you live here like I do) is now a full blown theocracy, denouncing and oppressing atheism? What would you do if tomorrow, a Christian-American Inquisition pounded down your front door to "survey" your "fundamentalist ideals"? LOL....
Would you run or move away? Live in hiding? Pretend to be Christian? Kill yourself? Fight a losing "war" with a whole nation of Christians?
Do you think we'd stand a chance of having any rights as atheists in a theocracy? Ever? lol...
Is there any among you who believes that America cannot be in danger of becoming a theocracy?
Just some pressing thoughts burning away at my brain. I'm not sure what I'd do. Probably move away if all was lost. Hopefully another country will accept me and my atheism. I would hate to have to defend myself from the violence of Christian Theocracy. It's like a bazillion-to-one chance of survival if they decided they wanted to kill us all. How would they know who were were? Well I don't know about you..... but this website isn't the only evidence of my atheism. Maybe we should start leaving less evidence? Fuck that. What say all of you?
Your 60% budget is being used for helping millions and millions ppl from all over the world, to live with peace and harmony.
Thanks and salute to American ppl for thinkin about humans, peace, and planet.
Iraqis r free now and can now progress according to global democratic norms
and values. I think America and Its allies should act in the same way for Iran and North Korea.
It may appear to be a theocracy compared to Europe, but the government is still "Secular", per se. As long as we have people fighting the legal battles we should be fine...which reminds me I should donate to the ACLU
America cannot be in danger of becoming a theocracy until there exists freedom of expressions and thoughts.
You r 100% right
"v should think of ways to stem this growing tide against our right to b atheists"
Is it that easy, I do not think so. Its the way how the Islamist thinks They are the brainless ppl but you are not.
I'd personally start up the Atheist Liberation Front (based on the ideals of the Earth Liberation Front), and play along like a good little christian, while burning churches across the country to the ground ("Come on, Pookie, let's burn this motherfucker down!"* teehee)!!! I would continue playing the christian game, and committing arson, until the government either got the message, or burned me at the stake for heresy. But then again, I'm sure there'd be others out there just crazy enough to follow in my footsteps, and eventually the government would cave. They may be able to kill me, but they wouldn't be able to kill my idea!^
And yes, I have been geekin' out on my movie collection lately... How could you tell? :)
Leave America, not because I'm scared but why would I want my future children to go to a school where they don't teach facts such as Evolution, the age of the earth, and simple astronomy. I value pleasure (tranquility and freedom of fear) and knowledge over all else. Theocratic countries take away both. Although America is secular by origin, we have more of a Theocratical Oligarchy in some aspects.
