“God gives us free will, even to atheists.”

“If God wanted us to have free will he wouldn't condone slavery in the Bible.  Free will is taken and fought for by men and women for those who want it.”

“They aren't banning being gay. They are banning spreading gay propaganda to children, which is perfectly within their rights.”

“Um no, the gay agenda is to get everyone on the planet to approve of them and validate them with big thumbs up. See, most people don't care about gays and can live and let live, but gay fundamentalism has a need to be flamboyant and push it down everyone's throats, so to speak.”

callumbourne on Oct 14, 2013 at 08:29:58

“Not really. Most gay people actually don't care about what you think of them, and most gay people who are "flamboyant" REALLY don't care about what you think of them.”

“Atheism is an ideology.. and it requires faith, and the movement seems to particularly have a hatred for Christianity.
So when people say many were killed by Christianity during the Crusades, or something like that, it holds equally true when a government that is officially atheist kills millions of Christians, which happened in Ukraine during the 30's.
They may not have waved an atheist flag while doing it, but their values certainly came into play.”

“Atheism is an ideology.. and it requires faith
What ideology would that be? We do not have a BIBLE, QURAN, etc that defines us or dictates a standard or code of ethics to us. 
The ONLY thing Atheist one can say that agree on is the that their is no god(s). Other then that we have nO idealogy.
OK it is probably true that almost all atheists stand for the values of reason and freethought. Agree?
There is the belief that inquiry and doubt are essential checks against deception, self deception, and error. 
There is the belief that logic and proper empirical method is the only way the whole world can arrive at an agreement on the truth about anything.
 And there is the belief that it is better to be good to each other and to build on what we all agree to be true, than to insist that we all think alike. 
The words I have put in bold above are the very things I believe all atheists should stand for.

But we have NO 10 commandments that all must adhere to.”

“Communism (or at least certain forms of it) can be blamed for communist violence; Christianity (or at least certain forms of it) can also be blamed for Christian violence. As a belief system with specific doctrines that were openly held up as justifying or sanctioning violence, religion must be held responsible for the violence committed in its name.”

Amock4U on Oct 14, 2013 at 15:27:37

“The Crusades was about killing others based on religious belief.
Communist were not killing others because they refused to convert to atheism. Did they kill others based on their religious believes - russian Orthodox, Judism etc yes but also based on sexual orientation, political affiliation, ethnic background, etc.Because they opposed the Communist philosophy or dogma thus political in nature even other Communist were killed because they had disagreement with those in power. 
Atheism is not inherently opposed to religion: it is possible to be both an atheist and religious and some religions are themselves atheistic. Atheism also isn't a belief system or ideology which can, by itself, inspire people to do things — good or bad.To understand this better, consider times in the past when religion has been involved with violence — the Inquisition would be good. How many people were killed during the Inquisition in the name of theism? None. Those doing the killing acted not because of theism, but rather because of Christian doctrines. The belief system is what inspired people to act (sometimes for good, sometimes for ill). The single belief of theism, however, did not.Similarly, communism certainly inspired people to act and gave them motivations to do certain things, but atheism — which is the absence of a belief and not even a belief itself — did not. The assumption that people in Russia and China were killed merely on account of atheism is based upon two other myths: first, that atheism is itself some sort of”

“Ricochet nobody kills in the name of atheism. Nobody straps a bomb to themselves and yells no god is akbar!
Communist killed in the name of Communism which was a political belief. 
Atheist do not get together and state we need to kill all believers. No atheist straps a bomb to himself or blows up a building, embassy in the name of atheism. 
Faith is a belief in something that cannot be proven. Atheist do not need faith that really no god exist and if we just have faith it will become true. Hard to belief in something (religion) which never existed to start with. Like saying I need faith to believe the Easter Bunny does not really exist. I don't need faith for that because I know it to be true. 
Atheist belief that NO god exist therefore it is not up to us to prove that like it is not up to atheist to prove/disprove Santa It is up to the others to prove the opposite is indeed true. ”

“Atheists haven't been victims. Sure, there were persecutions of witches, heretics, etc, but atheists are a more modern phenomenon. Since the 20th century, atheists have been THE main instigator (USSR, North Korea, Communist China, Cuba), followed by Islamic fundamentalism.”

“No, atheism is an ideology all its own, and it behaves in extremist fashion. Just look at the vitriol in this thread from people depending atheism- sounds like fundamentalism to me. Communist countries are all atheist, and the Bolsheviks starved 30 million Ukrainian Christians to death in the 30's, because of their hatred for Christians. Atheists are perfectly capable of hating those that believe different than them.”

“The U.S. doesn't care about Russian gays, just about destabilizing Russia since Putin won't sell the country out to western $$$ interests. If the U.S. cared about gays, they would focus on Saudi Arabia, where being gay can get you a death sentence. But the Saudis are our 'allies' and give us lots of oil on the cheap, so who cares? Let's all focus on the Russians banning public gay propaganda because no white country is allowed without multiculturalism and gays!”

Conservative Christians are a problem
Conservative Islam is fueling Terrorism, etc.
Conservatives want money and power over others.
