Now, many (especially the atheists), may ask "Why do this, what's the purpose?" Duhhh, Mr. Atheist for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net - to INFORM the public! I mean, in the City of Miramar, Florida, where I live, the population is approx. 109,000. My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists! Perhaps we may actually know some. In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism. Or perhaps they are radical atheists, whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh's, in that case, if they are business owners, we would encourage all our Christian friends, as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be "feeding" Satan.

Frankly, I don't see why anyone would oppose this idea - including the atheists themselves (unless of course, they're actually ashamed of their atheist religion, and would prefer to stay in the 'closet.').

Why don't we make a list of admitted Christian fundamentalists, so that we can witness to you the destructive nature of your obsessive religious fanaticism. Of course, if you're too militant, we'll have to be sure not to patronize your businesses or hire you. That would be 'feeding' delusional intolerance.

But, oh wait, that would be CHRISTUN PROSEKUSHUN wouldnt it?

"Frankly, I don't see why anyone would oppose this idea - including the atheists themselves (unless of course, they're actually ashamed of their atheist religion, and would prefer to stay in the 'closet.')."

It totally isn't because they'd all be endlessly threatened or harassed or anything. Totally.

You know who also had a national registry for people who weren't of their own religion?

The Nazis.

This shit reeks of pure vintage fascism. Seriously, this resembles Nazi rhetoric almost word by word.

9/7/2011 3:38:56 AM



You can do that sure, only if we get to put a sign right next to it posting images of you and every other religious nut job, so we know to stay away from you.

That's called harassment, dumbass.

And according to the Buybull, GOD hardened Pharaoh's heart. God just wanted to drop plagues on something.

As Michelle from "Allo! Allo!" would say - listen very carefully, I shall say this only once:

F-U-C-K O-F-F.

Oh, and atheism is not a fucking religion.

Should we wear yellow A's then. As a gay man, should I put back the pink triangle to make you feel better?

Well, "Pastor Mike", the very same reason why you don't want to post your private eMail address in the internet. Because when you do, soon your mailbox will get hopelessly filled up with spam.

I still wanna be Atheist Zero on his list, but his blog is private.

I doubt anyone is asking why you want to do this. It's pretty obvious from your blog what you hope to accomplish with a list like this.

The real question is, how does a person become so twisted in his world view, that he thinks this would be appropriate or just.

I'm not an atheist but I can not support this. They as a group have not harmed others. Most have been respectful of my beliefs. Now a good number of Christians on the other hand...

If you don't see why anyone would oppose this idea you have something of a LOG in you eye.

Treat others the way you wish to be treated. This means you want to have a national database of admitted Christians there are, after all, they are like convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons.

...for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net - to INFORM the public!

I agree this is critically important for identifying sex offenders and felons moving into the area, however, atheists have committed no crimes!

In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism.

People have the right to be left alone. You have the duty not to keep pestering them if they tell you they're not interested in what your peddling. Why you think you have the obligation to keep "witnessing" to them is beyond me. It's arrogant presumption at its worst.

(…most researchers have found similarly. The upbringing of sex offenders was usually sexually repressive, often they had an overtly religious background and held rigid conservative attitudes toward sexuality (Conyers & Harvey, 1996; Dougher, 1988); their upbringing had usually been ritualistically moralistic and conservative rather than permissive.)

That's why, motherfucker. You just admitted that you were going to openly discriminate against them and bother the fuck out of them and you wonder why the fuck they don't want to be on your stupid list? Are you retarded or do you have a psychopathic lack of empathy?

In order to be fair, if you're gonna register atheists then you have to register everyone else. Otherwise you're just singling people out. I doubt that many people thought that registering Jews in Nazi Germany was such a bad idea at first.

Now, many (especially the atheists), may ask "Why do this, what's the purpose?"

I can only speak for myself and my experiences, but the purpose seems obvious to me, it's intent is to take a group of people you don't like or disagree with and turn them into a suspect class who can then be easily targeted for scapegoating, persecution, and reprisal for imagined wrongs.

Duhhh, Mr. Atheist for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net - to INFORM the public!

And why does the government and the public in general have a need to be informed of my religious beliefs or lack thereof? Databases of sex offenders exist because those people have a documented history of criminal behavior. Being an atheist IS NOT a crime and atheists pose neither an inherent or implied threat to the public.

I mean, in the City of Miramar, Florida, where I live, the population is approx. 109,000. My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists!

Again, why is it any of your business? The constitution gurantees every citizen the freedom of religion, which by it's very definition includes the freedom to choose no religion, and to do so without interference by the government, which is the only body that could mandate such a registry. My religious beliefs, or lack thereof is no more your business than your beliefs are mine.

Perhaps we may actually know some. In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism.

You don't get to use the power and machinery of the government as a conversion tool for your religion.

Or perhaps they are radical atheists, whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh's

IIRC it's was your "god" that "hardened pharoh's heart" long after pharoh was willing to release the israelites

in that case, if they are business owners, we would encourage all our Christian friends, as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be "feeding" Satan.

Unfortunetly for you, you don't have the right to not have to interact with/buy from/sell to etc. whose religious leaning you don't happen to like.

Frankly, I don't see why anyone would oppose this idea - including the atheists themselves (unless of course, they're actually ashamed of their atheist religion, and would prefer to stay in the 'closet.').

First, there is no "atheist religion". Tey only thing that all atheists have in common is that they lack a belief in a "god". That's it.

Second, this has nothing to do with being ashamed of hiding in the closet, it has to do with the fact that it is none of your damn business! It has to do with the fact that not sharing your religion does not make somebody part of a suspect class who's whereabouts, names, and images need to be recorded and/or tracked. It as to do with the fact that every citizen deserves and is guaranteed a modicum of privacy.

Doubting Thomas

Or, kind-hearted, loving, and forgiving Christians would use the list to find targets to harass. Or they would put their Christian enemies on the list so that their fellow Christians would harass them.

Be careful what you wish for, Pastor Mike, you might find that there are a lot more of us atheists out there than you think.

9/7/2011 6:33:01 AM

Well in that case I'd like to see a list of fundamentalist religionists like yourself and know if any are living in my neighborhood.

I mean, they're not ashamed of their faith are they?
