"God has pulled out of"
...Mary? [/Spartan Laconic Wit] If only he'd done an Onan then, we wouldn't be lumbered with all this so-called 'Christianity' malarkey in the first place. [/hyper-sarcasm]
As for the rest of your tl;dr, it still doesn't answer the question: if my country, the UK legalised homosexuality in 1967 - and effectively gay marriage the last several years - why haven't we, least of all Holland, been 'punished' by hurricanes, tornadoes & earthquakes, yet the 'Bible Belt' is punished in our stead? Go on, Kenny-boy. Answer that. Especially with checking just one of the answers in my previous comment. If you can, without questioning your own beliefs, that is.
Or is the 'Bible Belt' the 'whipping boy' for we Brits and the even more hyper-tolerant Dutch? Well, it seems we won't be learning our 'moral' lesson for some time to come. [/Doug Piranha-levels of sarcasm]
...oh, and re. that second YouTube link with Al Murray (Pub Landlord):
''I love Americans, you're beautiful people. Yeh. You're simple folk, aren'cha? When an American can't explain something, he says it's 'Aliens', doesn't he?! At least British people are prepared to admit when they're pissed! We're sensible people in this country, because it's a reasonable country.'
Now substitute 'God' for 'Aliens'. Then read the rest of that quote by Al.
"As for dipping my toe, regretfully it was dipped years ago before my conversion and I must say it was at the bottom wrung of the latter and at the point of no return from my sinfull lifestyle."
Two words: Ted Faggard:
...oh, and another two words: Ninth Commandment.
Remember: Liars go to Hell. But then, not for nothing are the doctrines 'Grace by Faith Only' and 'OSAS' so favoured by the hypocritical right-wing fundie. It gives them carte blanche to be an unjustifiable cuntbag, masquerading as being 'Saved', thus under the illusion that they think they have the right to be judgemental towards anyone else.
No thanks, I prefer being an honest, morally superior Atheist. Yes, you heard, Kenny-boy:
As I've yet to so much as kill just one person to date, nor do I want to, ever, the above proves that I am more than infinitely superior to God. In every way.
PROTIP: And the ten killed by Satan were only under the specific authorisation of God. Thanks for the great advert for Satanism, Kenny-boy.
Anton LaVey. Fred Phelps. Hmmmmm, that one's a toughy...! [/mega-sarcasm]
Your own 'Word of God' proves that Lucifer is actually the good guy in all this. 'Lucifer' means 'Bringer of Light'.
Right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity means a return to the Dark Ages:
Prove the more than infinite superiority of not only Secular Humanism, but Left-wing Atheism, much, Kenny-boy?
Several years ago, our Parliament had a vote on Stem Cell research; also on the time on abortions. The then Leader of the Opposition - now Prime Minister - David Cameron voted to reject a ban on Stem Cell research in the UK; also to reject shortening the time on abortions too.
David Cameron is a Conservative.
You want the likes of China, Cuba and the UK to be superior to the US in terms of medical science, you go right ahead and make the rest of the US like Texas. Backward. The UK pioneered the cloning of Stem Cells; also tissue replacement via stem cells from bone marrow.
I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords. At least they don't let themselves be hamstrung by religion, least of all when it comes to technological innovation and R&D. Indeed, China is set to overtake the US technologically in just two years.
In Soviet China, God worships you.
I like the sound of that. In the 21st Century and beyond, religion no longer has the right to tell people what to do. If anything, it should be people telling religion - and it's clergy (including you Kenny-boy!) what to do. As in we Atheists should have the legal power to rewrite the Bible according to our whims and fancies, and that you fundies must agree, nay change your worshipping, to take this into account. Also, that clergy must bow down and worship we Atheists - because as far as you're concerned, we are God, and you must agree to this.
State control of religion? Like I say: I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords. >:D
Roman Catholicism once had absolute control over Europe, several centuries ago. Then the rot set in, via the Renaissance; the juggernaut that is progress started on it's inexorable path, not giving a flying fuck whose dogmatic toes - or whole clergy - it flattened. As it does to this day; the gaps it fills gradually eroding away religion's power over people. Reduced to unjustifiable threats, nay, use of psychological blackmail, of fundies' 'Hellfire & Damnation!' & 'Sinner' bullshit. Got news for y'all, especially you, Kenny-boy:
But people today are no longer afraid. Good. Religion's power over them is slipping through the clergy's fingers, nay, are clawing at the last particles of straw dust, to try and ensure it's survival.
The 'Paedophile Priests' scandal, and all that jazz. Protestantism isn't completely innocent in this sordid matter, neither:
God-fearing people all, I'm sure you'll agree. By definition, they have to be. Show me just one member of the GOP who's an avowed Atheist?
It;s okay, I can wait...!
US prison population:
Proof that we Atheists are more than infinitely superior to you lot.
'I say quite deliberately that the Christian religion, as organised in its Churches, has been and still is the principal enemy of moral progress in the world.'
'Those who forget good and evil and seek only to know the facts are more likely to achieve good than those who view the world through the distorting medium of their own desires.'
'Religion is something left over from the infancy of our intelligence, it will fade away as we adopt reason and science as our guidelines.'
'It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a golden age; but, if so, it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door, and this dragon is religion.'
Your light is dying, and you know it.
Atheism's star is in the ascendant.
Feels good to be on the eternally winning side.
