Thread Name: BS: 'Militant Atheism' is a propaganda term
Subject: RE: BS: Strident atheism not a religion
All the threads on pocket watches wind me up.
(Sorry. Couldn't help it)
The relevance to this thread escapes me though. Forgive me if I am wrong but this thread is about Sheffield Wednesday. Ok. It is about how rational normal people get fed up of other otherwise normal people putting them in a box so they can compare them with their own hobby. The more some people try to stifle the debate the more their stance is shown for what it is. Religion is a jealous Creed and the moment you questioniit the more the victim mentality comes through.
BBC Question Time last night was a point in case. A questioner said that as a few thousand people had signed a petition against gay marriage on religious grounds the government had to drop the bill. It was pointed out that in the room of 200 people he was in a very small minority. That made him angry. Angry that God was subject to democracy. Sadly his supporters included a cabinet minister. The defence secretary of all people. But not the ex cabinet minister who was gay and an ex vicar for that matter.
Straw men? A minister of the realm and a sad young man with unkempt hair and an attitude join together to wish to coerce people using religion as their tool?
I'm off to buy some 4x2 and a bag of nails. Get as many as I can before its too late. ..
