Shawn Truesdell commented on Nix Manes's blog post 'Legally Teaching Kids Religion During School Hours: Released Time'

Profession of "Faith"

Ever since my de-conversion there is one statement from believers that irritates me time and time again. We have all heard it, it is the common fall back for just about every argument against christianity. Every time I have argued the plagiarism, absurdities, contradictions, lies, cruelty and intolerance of the Bible, this statement, or something similar, invariably gets thrown in my face: “You just have to have faith”.Faith in what I ask.

Shawn Truesdell replied to Morgan Matthew's discussion 'Thoughts from an Abortion Doctor'
"Wow! Tough subject matter. I will say first off that it is powerful and insightful and I applaud the writer for the work she does, it would not be an easy job. I have spent a lot of time reading many of the comments on this post, particularly since…"
