Surviving in Oklahoma. If anyone is in the Norman area hit me up!
Living in Northern Arkansas...it's so religious here it's a bit depressing.
Another example of what happens in the bible belt. The local goverments think they have the right to push their religion.
Glad the FFRF got them
WHITEVILLE, TN (abc24.com) - They're fired up and sounding off. The Freedom from Religion Foundation struck a nerve in Whiteville, Tennessee when it began a campaign to remove a cross from the town's water tower.That issue was settled, but it sparked another effort among residents offended that out-of-towners butted in on their religious expression.What was seen as an attack on Christianity got Whiteville residents like Roger Alston riled up.“Most people felt like if they didn't want to look up and see one, they'll see them everywhere they look,” Alston tells abc24.com.Alston is behind the movement in Whiteville to saturate the town with crosses.“I've made about 150 so far,” Alston says.Now, he has about 30 left. When the Freedom from Religion Foundation pressured the town of Whiteville to remove the cross on its water tower, frustration among locals like Inis Houseman ran deep.“They don't like the cross, don't look at it," she says matter-of-factly. "They don't like the cross move. That cross has been there, I don't know how many years."“It's very disturbing, very disturbing,” Brannan Lewis says describing the pressure to remove the cross.He compared it to efforts that eventually took prayer out of public schools. “Look at what happened to our schools," he says, "and all the violence and all the gang related activity you have in the school now."While the vast majority of people in Whiteville say the city has every right to have the cross on its water tower, we spoke with a few people who say it doesn't really matter to them. We didn't find anyone who thought the cross should be taken down.The Freedom From Religion Foundation says complaints from a Whiteville resident prompted the group to get involved. The mayor doesn't buy it.“She's got her spies here (referring to the organization’s Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor) and that's the unfortunate part about it," Mayor James Bellar tells abc24.com. "I don't think any of them live in the corporate limits of Whiteville, Tennessee."Bellar spent nearly $4,000 to remove one arm of the cross to avoid a lawsuit. The Freedom From Religion Foundation says if the town restores the full, Latin cross, it will meet the mayor in court.
If the picture I've seen of the, what, bullet-proof or bad spirit-proof undies are the real thing, just getting out of them would allow time for their conscience to intervene and keep them from being "bad". It has always been my opinion that things some people have listed in the "Conscience" column actually belong in the "Cold Feet" column. I wonder if they realize that under those Mormon undies they're all naked just like the rest of us?
Joy Behar called it magic underwear! Donnie Osmond says it is to remind them to be good! Yikes!
Ha! Indeed, I'm trapped in a Perry Paradise of jesse's crap freaks. I've had the experience of flying through Salt Lake City several times headed to Anchorage, Alaska and I can feel the weirdness leaching through the alloy skin of the MD-80 in which I was riding. That airport is assembly central for those bicycle-peddling freaks in dark suit and tie to head out into the world and spread their hip-deep BS. If I had, for some unimaginable reason, to move there for a job, I'd become a beach-bun in Florida before I'd allow that to happen. And think of it, two of the repugnican presidential candidates are Mormon freak-a-zoids; wonder if they wear their special underwear, LOL! If one of them should actually be elected, I'd go jump into the ocean and swim away of that was the only avenue left to me to depart this religion-infested nation.
Ken, I see you love Gov good hair as much as I do. Still waiting for all that rain the boobs in this state were praying for. Had a big prayer thing in New Braunfuls a month or so ago. Still only a dribble. On the more serious side, I am afraid this moron might get elected! Samantha, that sounds nasty to have to see everyday. My hubby was a trucker about 10 yrs ago and I lived on the truck with him and in Utah all you hear on the radio and TV is Mormon stuff and the Walmarts only carry Mormon stuff.
I, too, spent a decade in Florida, Fort Lauderdale to be more exact, and the jeebus crap wasn't as prominent there as in a lot of other areas in Florida, although to my taste it was plenty bad enough. There's even an End Timed Ministry there somewhere in central Florida I think and there are plenty of Caribbean islander folks who seem to be very excitable when it comes to being "spirit-filled".
My missus went to a crapstian fellowship in Plantation where we lived immediately west of Fort Lauderdale and there were a lot of islanders that went there as well. She even had a few of them over on a few, very few occasions to our home for a little get-down until I put a stop to it. I told her the house was as much mine as hers. Therefore, I said I was going to start inviting some of my friends from the James Randi Education Foundation over for little get-down of our own flavor and that put an end to it. I reminded her our home was not a church and I didn't expect to have that crap going on within my hearing.
Like an idiot I moved away from SE Florida after becoming worn out by living in the middle of 7-million south Floridians and we moved to doG's country of Tucking fexas! I've regretted the move a lot but I have some very good atheist friends here and we have meetings and events as often as possible.
Rick Perry is an idiot and it's funny how he zoomes to the top of the Repugnican's list, at least until they listened to him speak. That down-home, Texas country boy TA&M graduate drawl, logic and language plays well only to a dumbed-down dip-shit electorate.
Hello everyone! I am in Florida...have been for a decade now. Moving here after living in the Pac West has been so frustrating! In the county I live in..I cannot drive anywhere without seeing "Believe in jesus christ" There is a dentists office who on a major intersection, has a huge billboard with various christian messages on it. I would like to post my own billboard about Freethinkers...probably would get a big fat no!!
Hi, everyone! I almost feel like I'm at an AA meeting, lol. (I happen to work in an alcohol/drug treatment outpatient clinic). I really have been mostly quiet on facebook about my atheist beliefs, though I did put it on my info page for anyone to see. I'm one of those who doesn't want to rock the boat most of the time and don't want to upset others, but I'm starting to lean toward trying to find more atheist friends on facebook with whom I can converse, regardless of the subject. Most of my "friends" are Christian, right-wingers and sometimes they post ridiculous crap about Obama (the birther thing comes to mind) and will put up "inspirational" messages that I just ignore. I'm not offended by it, but more often their political stances really bother me. Most are okay with homosexuals...to a point, but often talk about their Christian ways being threatened. I'm really trying to be more open about my views without actually getting into it with my fb friends. So, if anyone wants to be a fb friend with me, I would love that. Just look for Trish Harmon with the funny profile pic of a female skull and crossbones wearing big sunglasses. That's me! (One of my creations for the design work I do.) If I can at least converse about whatever with other like-minded people on my facebook page it will be more fulfilling. If my Christian friends don't like it, they don't have to comment. It's just very frustrating being a minority in a world of crazy people.
