Might as well have some laughs at all those facebook Christians

"Faith soars on the wings of eagles, rides on the backs of oxen, spouts forth from the depths of the dove's breast.  You come to me an empty vessel and returneth as an overflowing urn.   1 Peter 4:11-13   This is fun!  "

"And I also use "Cheese and Rice!" as a substitute for "Jesus Christ!", not to use a polite euphemism instead of blaspheming, but because I enjoy the cheesy (pun intended) bastardization of the invective."

"I have started saying, "Thor Dammit", since no one cares when you say any of the other thousands of gods from the past. You could substitute any others...use the Godchecker: http://www.godchecker.com/"

"I don't see what the consequences may be?   It is a choice of long-term versus short-term. You either work in a continuous state of discomfort or you just experience some social penalties a short time after which you would feel comfortable…"

"Something to think about: I lost two jobs, one with a nationally recognized non-profit, and one with the local county school system because of my openness about my atheism.  Of course, I do live in Alabama."

Workplace Atheism

I am a somewhat closeted atheist, with close family and friends knowing my stance on religion, but not everyone in my life.  As I am not close with anyone at my workplace, no one there knows my feelings, and it likely won't come up in conversation. Anyway, I've had a couple of workplace situations that have made me think about this: -When a co-worker has been ill, or there's been a death in the family, a card is sent around to sign with well-wishes.  Most people sign something like, "I'll be…See More
