    “To all religious people:
    Ignore the atheists here.Don't answer ANY of their questions.”

    I guess that you don’t want to obey all of the commands in your own scripture. How about 1 Peter 3:15? You must always be prepared to give an answer as to why you believe. Or do you not have to believe in what Jesus said?

      Fools never care that they'll be blotted out. No eternity for them. Millions of fools born generations before you guys ... since, you're so concerned with statistics. That's why Jesus told us that the path is wide and most people are on it to condemnation.

    • AtheistSteve

      Well Mark I don't know how others feel but for me it's akin to poking a stick into a washed up jellyfish. Fascinating and yucky all at the same time. This topic is about p0rn...however you might feel about it...there are good things and bad things involved. From artistic freedom of s3xual expression to exploitation of innocents. Like anything in life all things can be good if taken in moderation. But the religious view toward s3xuality it often severely warped. According to the Bible it's a sin to even "think" lustful thoughts. How sick is it that even in the act of procreation(which is all s3x is supposed to be intended for) that people are meant to maintain a feeling of guilt and disgust in what they're doing.

      July 16, 2012 at 1:06 pm |

      Mark: I don't know if it's so much dancing to the freaks beat or proving a point that no matter how much it spews, we are not going anywhere. Maybe if WAB didn't feel the overwhelming need to only attack Atheists, we wouldn't feel the need to attack it. WAB offers nothing useful to any article and makes christianity look even less appealing than we already see it.

    • Mark from Middle River

      Good post Steve. 🙂

      Truthfully, I also see it as a bit of art. The “moderation” part is up for debate because like alcohol, it is different for everyone.

      All of us Faithful are not Charles Engalls. 🙂

      As a Christian I am questioning why waste time and resources on limiting po'rn in hotel rooms. It makes absolutely no sense. Will the bars in the hotels be next? I would question them what if the characters were married, would that media material then be ok? Also, there are feminist who feel that po'rn exploits the women of society....is the Muslim scholor ready to join with them.

      Sadly, I think I know why they are fighting and protesting all of a sudden. HereTV and LOGOs are now becoming available as basic cable stations and the po'rn reasoning is just a mask for anti-LGBT media content.

      Great response though Steve.

      >>>”we are not going anywhere. “

      And him and his side are not going anywhere as well. Welcome to the outskirts of the Middle and tolerance.

      Brony, has pretty much declared to the point of admission, himself as operating in a troll like way. Prevails, you have been around long enough to know that all the “attacking” that you can muster can not defeat someone who is trolling. The more you attack, the more violent you attack just makes trolls on both sides happy. Almost to the point that I believe there are ones who have posted one day as a Faithful and one day as a Atheist …. just to get folks to go nuts. In some ways, I think that it might even be ones that the Belief Blog editors send in just to get both sides started at each others throats.

      Next, we begin the same words and the same battles that have been said over and over again.

      “Atheist are stupid” …. “Religious are ignorant”..... and it all starts again. 🙁

      Sorta like ...this one movie.

    • AtheistSteve

      Good points Mark.
      If you look back to ancient Greece you see beautiful statues of naked people. Not canal displays of lust. Even the Olympics were performed naked. The human body was viewed as a work of art....without shame. It took the burgeoning religious views of the Abrahamics to instill that feeling of shame in the naked form. Michelangelo had to discreetly cover the naughty bits and shrouded figures dominate iconography in all the centuries following the Greek and Roman empires. Religion is obsessed with s3x...only it's obsession is focused on oppression. When people are told s3xual pleasure is sinful then isn't it also possible to sway those who would listen to make morally reprehensible things seem Holy? There is an asian country(I don't know which) that venerates the erect phallus in numerous public statues and displays that would make most North Americans blush but has not caused it's inhabitants to become depraved s3x addicts or perverts. They view it as a natural expression of virility and vitality.

      And what exactly is His Word? As far as I can tell god never wrote a bloody word(His stone tablets are conveniently awol)...neither for that matter did Jesus. How can it be that God and the son of God are both illiterate? Doesn't seem very God-like to me. Why rely on the second or third-hand retelling of the message if it's supposed to be so all-encompassing important? If this is the best way the creator of the universe has of conveying a message to all humanity then He is an idiot.

Have no clue that this life is all they get, no eternity for them ... and they need to stop telling Jesus what they wanted Him to write instead of paying attention to what he did write. Jesus doesn't change, people do, for the worse, getting further and further away from His truth. They have no clue what they do, and are so duped on babble, no clue they need to care.

      Free will folks and you need to choose wisely and stop paying attention to the ways of the world and learn how to focus on Jesus Christ's spiritual truth that will allow you to live for eternity.

      Now you are starting to see the reason why CNN will repeat post the same article. Actually, lately they have been sorta slow. Normally they repost at 2000 comments and at 4000 we would get a "Your take" article and all the same "I hate Atheist" and "I hate Religious" arguments start all over again.

That because of that evil, a "world-wide" flood killed every living thing except for whatever was on a single boat? That man got too uppity and built a tower, so different languages and cultures suddenly sprang into existence? That a single group of people were paraded back and forth in the desert by another group for decades. That some spirit that created the universe did it with a virgin to become its own offspring, so the offspring could be tortured and killed? So, now, you were accusing someone ELSE of having delusions?

      @Mark

      I beg to differ. What does an extreme atheist have in common with an extreme theist? The latter appeals to the supernatural in defense of it's position whereas the former does not. There is a big difference in mocking someone for making unfounded claims and mocking someone for not accepting hocus-pocus.

      July 16, 2012 at 12:47 pm |
    • Mark from Middle River

      >>>”I beg to differ. What does an extreme atheist have in common with an extreme theist? “

      Easy and simple. Each declares that they are so right by their definition and views that it is a insult and a threat for any opposing view to exist. A year ago a Atheist made a great statement and said there is a big difference from saying that you do not believe in God to saying that another is stupid or ignorant because he or she does hold that there is a God.

      That is what many of yall have in common and over and over many times you echo the same words. Check out above where a guy suggest that they release records on who is watching adult content on hotel TVs. A bunch of years ago there were churches who also wanted to get the records of its pastors to make sure they were not watching p'orn and being paid as heads of churches. To me its just another echo of the extremist of Faith and the extremist Atheism.

      Brony, is just posting in the same way that some Atheist post, and now yall have lost your minds. What is sad is that it just sorta proves his point when the fall back Atheist weapon is to insult. Which, is also the fall back position of the extremist of Faith.

    • Primewonk

      Mark – atheists don't give a crap about what your, or any theist's personal opinions, er, beliefs are regarding any god. The problems arise when you fundiots make the claim that you worship the one true god and that everyone else needs to worship him in the same manner. And then you try and force your personal beliefs into our laws and into our schools. And then you try and legislate your scientifically ignorant opinions about gay folks into our laws and constîtutions.

      You fundiots of today are no better than the fundiot racists of the 50's.

We're not the liars, we're not sitting here using the threat of eternal torture on people in regards to stuff that can't be proven to exist. We don't live in fear like you do. We accept things based on evidence that is back with peer reviewed facts, not based on a 2000 year old book that is full of fallacies. You are a weak minded person. This is your delusion, not ours.

      Mark: I would prefer to think that this world would be a better place if everyone stopped judging people based on their personal lives and tried to get a long. It's when the apparent good christians start to judge that it becomes annoying. I don't care who a consenting adult sleeps with or what they watch or what job they have...if nobody is harmed in the process of one living their life, all is good. I know a great many believers from all different religious backgrounds who even if they don't agree don't sit there and argue over the simplest of facts. It's when I am threatened with eternal torture or I see basic rights stepped on in the name of belief that it bothers me. Those threats and those judgements make the decent christians like you look bad.

      I believe you Wonk, care about their views in the same fashion that an extremist such Rev Terry Jones does about Gays and Lesbians. You care enough to hate them and their impact within society and its laws. You both feel that the other side is forcing something upon you and at the same time forcing something upon society. Like I said in another thread. One group goes through one door at a school declaring that there should be no Gay and Lesbian student groups and the other goes through another entrance and says there should be no Religious student groups.

      Each, trying to remove the other from the public sphere with the hopes that folks will just disappear.

      Can I say that you Wonk and Rev Terry are no different than any hate group in history.

      Wonk. Then it can be seen as a two way request. As soon as every special interest group stops trying to force their vision of how the country should operate into the laws of the country, then what.... you won't have a problem with anyone? Think about all of the groups, environmentalist, feminist , racial preference, LGBT, Pro Gun and Gun Control, even the War Hawks and Peace Love and Happiness citizens. All of these folks are citizens that have pushed for legislation to make America closer to their vision of a Utopia. You are just targeting the one that you do not care for and hoping to silence them from having the same access that the other groups do. Just plain and simple censorship.

      If the gun control folks can not silence the Pro-Gun lobby, with all of their name calling and emotional pleas, I think you are in the exact same ship.
