"Logic is indeed pointless. I guess I got tired of quietly nodding my head and making xian sounding noise. Makes me cranky trying to be so freakin' nice to them."

"Don't really talk to my neighbors.  However I do go to coffee often in the mornings if I'm not working.  Most the people there aren't really fundies, but are believers.  It's pretty much the bible's right…"

"Excellent post, Faith. Stick to your beliefs and don't let the fundies get you down! Of course, you probably knew that already. :)   Regarding religious neighbors... I have no doubt that the majority of my neighbors are at least somewhat…"

My Neighbors and the Rapture

I live with my husband in a paid for home. A crappy 1986 doublewide with plumbing issues.  This 2.5 acre property was once a 15 acre three family "compound" later split up and sold. We bought it 2005. I'm in the middle. My neighbors are Pentacostal. To the right of me and to the left of me. They are the best neighbors I have ever had. Concerned but not nosy. Helpful but not intrusive. But they are Pentcostal. I don't imagine many of you need a detailed description of that particular form of the…See More

"If the buy a Koran and want to burn it, that their right IMO. Honestly, as silly as the whole thing is, I'm really not bothered by it. Now, if they were to attempt the remove Korans from the local library and burn them, then I would have an…"

"I don't know what to do about it but it does make me mad. One reason I would hesitate to protest their Koran-burning is because I wouldn't want them to deliberately misconstrue my sentiments as support of Islam... like they're doing…"

"That is awesome. But would they care since it is Arabic? After all, the true Bible is written in God's own language; American! ;-)"

"Someone over at TPM suggested that Arabic-language bibles should be scattered about where they plan to do the burnings. Then tell them AFTER it's over what they've done and how they're going straight to HELL."

"I'll admit my first response was to ignore the whole mess and plant an extra row of winter veggies. I don't intend to be the organizer of any protest, (been there and have about 20 T-Shirts). The international scrunity of my community and…"

"I agree with Reggie. By protesting it/ picking through the ashes you bring more attention to them, which is their main goal."

Reggie replied to Faith Carr's discussion 'DOVE WORLD OUTREACH CENTER Gainesville FL'
"Ignore it. Obviously the whole point is to gain attention and cause controversy. And while books are about the closest thing I would hold to being sacred, they are not. They are just books. If someone wants to burn one then why does it matter if it…"

Here I am in Gainesville whilst the world watches as plans are made to burn the Quarn. Nobody has come up with an appropriate response here in town. They have been denied the burn permit but plan to go ahead anyway. The local Christians are all babbling that their mystery book is the only book.And nobody else can think of an approach Ignore it? Protest it? Write a letter to the editor? Blah Blah What's an athiest to do?I thought maybe I'd bring some bad fiction to toss on the pile. But that's…See More
