"Apparently irrational and ridiculous opinions and belief systems aren't the exclusive domain of religious believers. If It isn't bad enough that the Uber-wealthy are gorging themselves at the trough, they also have apologists like…"
"Dangerous dogs? This site is supposedly Think Atheist, not some wanky social media site for intellectually shallow attention seekers to post trivial crap on. If you want to ask this sort of crap try facebook or youtube."

"Man, that is the longest short introduction I've ever seen! I'm scared to see you in full flight.......!!!!!!

"Sorry to come across as pedantic Suzanne, but a "moslim" is not a "race"- it is a religious choice. I detest Islam but it doesn't make me a racist any more than detesting the Christian religion makes me a racist. Lets keep…"
