I think that when I die it will be just like the last time I was dead

Death will be just like it was before we were born. That doesn't seem so bad.

Why it is alright to say all manner of evil about atheist and liberals and why it's so dangerous

I started out my adult live as a very studious Bible thumping Jesus loving Satan hating fundamentalist planning on being a preacher. In sermons I heard and sermons I delivered there was nothing you could say bad about Satan that went too far. Nothing. In fact, the more emotional the anti-Satan vitriol, the more "amens" you heard.

 

We see the results of this thinking in the vitriol we see spewed at Obama and liberals (the liberal description definitely does not include Obama).…

Most insidious thing about religion

Posted on July 31, 2011 at 6:58pm 12 Comments

Welcome to TA, Ron!  I noticed your post on the torture discussion and just wanted to say thanks.  There are only a couple of people here who are actually advocating that there might be any merit to torture, but every voice of reason against such atrocities is great to hear.
