"Maybe the UK should invade and recolonize us? Free healthcare and a secular nation would be a welcome change."

"Had a conversation with a regular church goer on this topic just the other day.  She was going on that those that sent money to these TV peachers were mad and throwing their money away to crooks. I agreed with her, but asked had she gone to…"

"We are all 'cast into oblivion' when we die. (Not too bad - endless, dreamless sleep.) It matters not which, if any of the religious mythologies we have dumped on us, depending on geography & parentage."

Shane Harris commented on Robert Karp's blog post 'Why We Need To Be Vocal In The Fight Against School Vouchers'
"Here in the UK we are moving in a  similar and equally wrong direction with the introduction of "Free Schools" a scheme like the Charter Schools in the US.  This policy allows any indivdual or organisation to apply …"

"Every  single one of them (fundies) with whom I have conversed has revealed the joy in which they will revel as each non-believer is forced to confess before their monstrous deity."

"Thanks for comment Heather... It always comes back to the Christian Judgement day doesn't.  The big stick to make people do what they are told and importantly pay for the privilege  "

Heather Spoonheim commented on Shane Harris's blog post 'What Happened to Aristotle's Mum ?'
"First off, I have to say that the title of this blog really drew me in - I'm still chuckling a bit.  Anyway, the Christian fundamentalist message I was taught stated that pre-Christian people had to be judged individually but that very few…"
