“This man like the vast majority of politicians deals very fast and loose with the truth. When we have an opening, we are getting 300 - 500 applications from sober, drug free qualified people. But we only have one job. We have to turn good people away every time something opens. It is truly sad.”

“Thank you for speaking up. We all know the truth.”
“Your referencing of iron age philosophers and the creators of religion which take an army of modern day theologians to decipher and make sense of is assine. Ancient people writing stories does not give someones life or body to a myth. People own their own bodies and lives. They should be respected in their wishes. Because you have swallowed hook, line and sinker an ancient deity and now wish to make others suffer for it is despicable.”

“wow! Someone's house was not visited by Santa!

“Pulpits endorse anyway. Just tax them all. Americans subsidize religion to the tune of billions of dollars. Time to start getting that money back.”

“Not all of them break the rules. It doesn't make sense to punish all for the sins (if you'll pardon the word) of a few. To tax all of them would also invite politicians to selectively raise taxes in areas that they don't like, enabling them to regulate religion in a way and violate the first amendment.”
“An very biblical practice that should be observed by all who think themselves Christian. The proof is in the bite of a Black Mamba and a cup of cyanide. Good luck all.., May the best .... er... true Christian win.”
“Nigel... There are many a Christian who will consign you to hell for your words. Sadly... the message of the bible is not the least bit clear. That is why there are over 30,000 Christian denominations and an Army of "theologians" to try to make some sense of it. Quite honestly, it is goobledegook but many think it is a message from the creator of the universe. So... the hatred, discrimination and general unethical behavior continues.”

“the bible is quite clear, the problem is people listen to other people who all have not read the scriptures, when the blind lead the blind they all end up falling into the pit.”
“Yes... people walk on water and are born from virgins. The earth is flat and 6000 years old. People rise from the dead and are healed by prayer (if you have enough faith). Where did butterflys come from Mommy. Oh... Jesus made them. Where did brain eating ameobas come from Mommy. Oh.. Satan made them.
Back to the Dark Ages. "The concessions we have made to religious faith- to the idea the belief can be sanctified be something other than evidence- have rendered us unable to name much less address one of the most pervasive causes of conflict in the world"”
