Philosophy is questions that may never be answered; Religion answers issues that may never be questioned.

Religion is nothing more than a social-support outfit for the weak-minded.

"He shows us all that if you can come out as an atheist in that family, it's possible anywhere."
Except, you know, they kicked him out, his own parents hate him now, and he's not allowed back unless he accepts their "church's" beliefs again.

Lucky him.

His parents hate everything and everyone so why should he be the exception.

They didn't kick him out. he planned his escape and ran in the middle of the night. The family did try and talk him back. His story is heart breaking.

Who are you to judge the way i live? I know im not

I am thankful that i was raised as an second generation athiest and my immediate family has representation from three different races (white parents, black older brother, native american sisters). Everyday i wake up, go to work, on the way there see Christians actively avoiding interacting with their Muslim Neighbors, (I'm not sure if it religious mis-understanding or xenophobia against refugees that were invited here.) I'll never understand minds that hate what is different from themselves.

Well, there goes his invitation to the next family Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter...........

If I were him, I'd change my name. I wouldn't want to be associated in any way, shape or form with Phelps or Westboro. I can already visualize Fred's head spinning on his neck before it explodes.

If a deity is known by the company he keeps, then as a non-believer even I feel
sorry for whichever one it is that the Westies adore.

Most of the family members are lawyers skilled in frivolous lawsuits.

Because it's religion . If we say anything you just shout religious freedom. .Christians can and do abuse children with this hate speech.

Isn't religious freedom ALSO the reason that so few Roman Catholic pedophiles have gone to jail, and why NO bishops, archbishops or cardinals have gone to jail in spite of the cover-ups and reassignments, as well as the gag-rule payoffs of those abused?

The evidence is that "religious freedom" is the legal excuse for getting away with LOTS of crimes.
