This is according to someone who has been my friend since my first year of high school. It started out as a simple post on Facebook... go figure. It was about Jessica Ahlquist and the horrifying treatment she is receiving by the Christians. Hell then the next thing I know he's getting all super sensitive and pissed off at me over it. So much so he posted this!
" Please show me atheists protesting other religions and notnjust different denominations of Christianity. And a banner with a prayer does not make a school a church. That girl that prays before a test in school should she be stopped? And this girl didn't protest the banner because of the law but because of her own personal beliefs. And that makes it no different then any other belief. I don't understand why giving someone something to believe in is so terrible. They are not forcing anything on anyone just trying to reassure those who believe in something. And seeing the atheist believe in nothing a threat on ones life should mean nothing because existence meaningless. Without belief we are nothing more than animals meant to do nothing more than eat, f*ck, and die. This also makes everything else pointless laws, common curtacy, and any other form of good living. If we exist as animals let's live as animals. Eat what we want f*ck who we want even if they don't want. And hell like a lion if I don't like the dude next to me why I don't I just kill him so he's not a threat."
"I hope you guys are enjoying the nothingness of your lives."
Even up to this point I tried not to take it to personally, kept my chin up. Tried to even explain to him something known as The 'establishment of religion' clause of the First Amendment, laws, facts and that religion doesn't hold monopoly over morals and virtue. People like myself are and can be good without God, threats of punishment and/or reward.
His only reply...
"Those are what are called extremist. But virtues and morals are pointless to animals."
Some days are so much harder then the last but I'll keep smiling and take solace in the fact that I got to this point with free will and the belief I have in myself... and with that I end my night with a theme song.
