Persecution complex much? Its the dominant religion, its going to be made fun of. Stop overreacting.
So religions are made fun of when they're dominant?
Head over to the Middle East and let me know how many comedians and professors you find calling Muslims towel-headed idiots.
Then we'll discuss why you completely missed the point.
And, if it wasn't obvious, I'm an atheist.
Well sure, other than the fact that it goes completely against reason and science.
Yes, the correct way to teach children to be logical is to tell them what's logical. Not present them with different arguments and challenge them to reach their own conclusions.
Let me be clear about something here. I don't want creationism taught in schools. But this is one of those issues that people love to take a moral stand on because it's an easy chance to be self-righteous and morally pretentious. When I learned about creationism in school, it was addressed in about 1-2 minutes, then passed over and never brought up again. Oh, those poor, indoctrinated peers of mine.
wait... terrorists are going to destroy the COUNTRY with nuclear weapons and compulsory education is a THOUSAND times more dangerous and badly motivated?
you're flying off the handle a little here dude.
I never said christianity is going to ruin this country any day. I don't believe that would be possible. I despise a culture of ignorance as I would assume you do. I'm not claiming victim in this argument.
Fair enough. Though I think you'd agree that plenty of atheists and other religious minorities love to act victimized when it comes to this stuff. Especially in the conversational wild west of the internet, where opinions are cheap and meaningless.
Do you even know how reason and science work? Children being taught that the Christian god may or may not have created the Earth is just as viable as a rabbit wearing a top-hat and sitting on Jupiter creating the Earth. Both are seriously undermining both science and reason.
Seriously, the rest of your rant is just, like, your opinion, man. Bring some facts. Here are some from me:
-The Spanish Inquisition
-Holocaust (at least partially)
-The Catholic Church as a whole (biggest, most powerful criminal organization to ever exist)
The above is part of the reason religion gets no respect from me. You can have your voluntary, willful, gleeful ignorance.
See my response to thatlookseasy.
I will remain voluntarily, willfully, and gleefully ignorant of the nationwide travesties that are door-to-door Bible pushers and Sunday morning talk radio, thank you.
