Default Its about time. Stop suggesting we are sinners.

New Sticky: RUDE AND SARCASTIC POSTS:

Well its about time.
Theist should get an infraction for even the slightest suggestion we are going to hell.
I mean, how rude.
I don’t sin and I’m not going to hell.
So come on non-believers, click on that little triangle and complain next time some theist comes on the AA forum and tries to sneak their rude beliefs of how sinful we are and that we are going to hell.


Cheers,
Aeroman

I agree. I hope this includes a tighter clampdown on proselytizing also. It's getting old.

A long long time ago, some guy scared of something invented a god to quell his fears, then he proselytized others about that god.

Eh.

Let those without sin cast the first stone. Unfortunately I couldn't be one of them. I have (usually in good natured way.) on occasion posted sarcastic posts at times. Sometime I can't help myself. It's just too easy. Granted my pokes could be considered offensive by anyone at any time. So it up to the Mods to decide. I'll try to be good. But every now and again I just won't be able to resist. But I make sure it not in a mean way.


As for those how call agnostic/atheist sinners.
Let me steal a lyric for slipknot's the "heretic anthem."

I fully intend to. And all other negative connotations about atheists, specifically referring to our lack of morals, etc., in any forum area.

Why even care? Hell is an imaginary place; they might as well tell me I'm going to Narnia!

Although there is something wrong with a person who wishes eternal torture on another...

Agreed, and clearly there are many that believe such nonsense.

Given the extremely religious tone of the books, I'm surprised that nobody's commented yet on this particular point.

Well said!

Some believers hold to the idea that atheists CHOOSE their damnation by a lack of belief. There are of course those that do WISH that hell is where we go.
