The trouble with Atheists

... is that they won't ever quit bringing up God in everything they do.

Now I have nothing against atheists, just as I would have no issue with Flat-Earthers, but simply taking the religious position they do doesn't grant them any sort of moral or ethical superiority. I point out that having a religion does not require a Supreme Being or Deity. Buddhism is the largest such example, with between 350-550 million followers. (The beings known as "Devas" or "Brahmas" are not deities as such, but merely those reborn into the highest planes of existence, having necessarily passed through humanity at some point.)

Now we have atheists sitting around, singing songs that support their religious beliefs in a crowd of their coreligionists, and taking moments of quiet contemplation to begin and end their religious convocations. If it looks like a church, sounds like a church, and talks like a church, it's a church.

My only question is what religious symbol they have atop the spire? And whether they will have the chutzpah to demand tax-exempt status given to churches.

This reminds me of the episode of South Park where Carmann gets frozen for 500 years, and when he wakes up, the religion of atheism has taken over the world and different factions are at war with one another.

When I was growing up, there was an unwritten law that said, "Majority rules." With these clowns coming out from under their rocks, demanding that the world change to suit them, that unwritten law is just tow words that the liberal judges happily ignore. Today, the smaller the minority on any issue, the more they rule.
