Mormon Church steps into the Prop. 8 battle
just one of many examples i could provide



Come on, this equates to taking offense at being wished a "Happy Easter" in what way?

(But I salute the Mormons for trying to protect the institution of marrige.)

This thread was started by FrGamble to wish everyone a Happy Easter. It is a gesture of good will. It is what Americans and others have been doing for generations. Regardless of one's beliefs, the message is still the same.

The Wizard welcomed FrGamble to this forum and encouraged him to post. I don't think he expected FrGamble or anyone else to be constantly mocked and ridiculed for their beliefs whether they be about religion, gambling or any other subject.

Happy Easter to all!

Show me an atheist and I'll show you someone that is likely autistic. By simply asking a series of question that have no relation to religion, I can pinpoint the people that are most likely atheists. There also exists a type of social rebelliousness, antisocial behavior, and bitterness that is very easy to spot as well.

Please note, I am not referring to agnostics.

Did you actually read the article?

"I think it seems likely that a huge proportion of high functioning autistics are atheists, but, that doesn’t mean that a huge proportion of atheists are high functioning autistics"

Thats the opposite of what you said. Polar opposite,
in fact. You disagree with atheism, therefore its a
product of mental illness. You would have fit in well
during the Inquisition..

I was going to post something offensive, but I see it's already been done.

Well, happy LaVey's birthday in three days.

What do you mean, the USA was founded by followers of Satan as well as Christians? The Declaration of Independence mentions Satan? The Constitution was sworn before Satan?

When all of thses things happen we can have his B-Day for a holiday.

I'm pretty sure more Christians than atheists believe in Satan. It can be argued that Satan is just as important as the Trinity components in comprising the Christian mythos, so to answer your question...yeah.

Now if you meant followers of the Church of Satan, which is really just some weird hardcore libertarian nature worship and mysticism, then no.

In any case, the founding fathers tried to set up the government to allow both religions.

Also, I don't know if Easter really fits the definition of a national holiday...it's always on a Sunday so most government services and postal delivery are closed anyways. Good Friday is a bank holiday. http://www.opm.gov/operating_status_schedules/fedhol/2012.asp
