Re: Out of the Closets and Into the Streets

@ Lordpunkmonk, I too have the Jesus Action figure with super gliding action. With respect to hiding atheism; I was openly atheistic in college, but that was a place where different viewpoints were tolerated. Shortly after graduation I joined the services where new/different ideas are not always tol...

Re: Out of the Closets and Into the Streets

At Cardinal Fang; It is most relevant - if you accept the underlying premise of this thread, which is: Atheism will gain acceptance if we get more atheists out there for the religious to meet. Only then will they begin to accept us as a group. Getting people to come out requires support. Not everyon...

Re: Out of the Closets and Into the Streets

At ET and FaithfulPirate: Thanks for contributing. Both interesting comments. We all have one thing in common. I too am surprised that those of religious faith always think that we atheists are "evil". I agree with you both that one of the best things that we can do is to get out there and...

Re: Out of the Closets and Into the Streets

ET, Thanks for sharing. I would say that my story is similar. My wife outed me to my brother. My brother is pretty churchy so he told my Mom. My Mom ended up calling me to lay a guilt trip on me about how my children would be raised. Coworkers look at me out of the corner of their eyes. I'm somewhat...

Out of the Closets and Into the Streets

One of the most significant strategies the gay community employed throughout the 1970s was to simply announce publicly that they were gay. It became harder and harder for non-gays to ostracize or demonize gays when it became apparent that gays lived net door, worked in their offices, or were relativ...

Re: The FSM Gnostic Texts

Ubi Dubium,

So sorry about the gender thing. How truly embarrassed I am. When I referenced the Creationist Museum, I meant the one in Kentucky. I don't know how DC got in there. I must have had something else on my brain.

Re: The FSM Gnostic Texts

Elvalia, You seem to want clarification on how I am going to force people to be tolerant: I don’t have a grand plan. I’m not looking to start a movement. Allthough, I really think someone should. I think we need a charismatic spokesperson to help raise awareness. I think what I was really hoping to ...

Re: The FSM Gnostic Texts

Sorry. Hard to get the tone right online. I would like a discussion. I'm not interested in people blindly agreeing with me, but I am rather fervent on the belief that the religious right have gained too much power in the US. I don't think my experiences are chance or bad luck. I know many others who...

Re: The FSM Gnostic Texts

Elvalia, I Apologize for the long delay. I was observing my favorite pagan holiday – christmas. I don’t think it is necessary for us to quote each other. We appear to be the only two in the conversation. Quoting helps third parties keep up with the conversation, but that doesn’t seem to be necessary...

Re: The FSM Gnostic Texts

Elvalia,

Yes, by "this country" I meant the US. My apologies, I should not have been so ethnocentric. Please post your opinion.

Re: The FSM Gnostic Texts

I see your point, but I think you have missed mine. When I speak of angry pastafarians I mean that we need to harness our outrage at how skeptics are treated in this country. Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics are viewed with derision everywhere in this country. We enjoy rights now, but imagine how o...

The FSM Gnostic Texts

For you true believers, you should know that there are a set of Gnostic FSM Texts out there that are being suppressed. Basically they describe a somewhat angrier FSM who occasionally encourages his followers to pick up the cutlass and perform intellectual rape and pillage against other religious bel...
