I’m an atheist. I put up with religion everyday. GOD bless you, thank you GOD, oh my GOD, I pledge allegance under GOD, in GOD we trust. While I don’t say any of that, I hear it everywhere. Atheists put up with what we don’t believe in. We watch people start wars and blow things up for their Gods. We see them protest funerals and doctors for their Gods. We sit back as religion does it’s thing. If you can’t handle some anti-religious humor, then its a shame. We put up with more than you think as atheists, try doing the same.
Um. While I’m an atheist who doesn’t support Christian charities…there are Christian charities which give out needed rations instead of bibles. The Salvation Army is a Christian foundation which allegedly hate homosexuals, yet the people who work in it have been known to help & employ LGBT. Red Cross and other other organizations don’t use 100% of the money they receive for donation.
Whichever organization you choose, make sure you lookup their policy & what they do with their money. I’m sure some Christian organizations are good & better than others.
Also, keep in mind that when you refuse to donate you will not make any impact to the organization. You won’t make them lose money because you don’t donate. The organization won’t feel anything but the people who need the donation will. Be skeptic AND smart.
Tell me how Zeus doesn’t exist. I’ll use your method to tell you how your god doesn’t.
How about letting women decide what they would like/want to wear?
Who cares what a male “scholar” has to say on the matter?
No cross-dressing! That means you can’t wear PANTS because pants were essentially men’s clothing! Ooooh~
Also, look at #5…what about nuns? The nun’s clothing has become an identity that says they are the followers of Christ, it identifies them as Christians/Catholics.
It was in a spirit of giving that members of a South Shore mosque contributed $2,000 to sponsor the Christmas Eve supper at the Old Brewery Mission and spent two hours serving it to more than 300 people.
This is double the minimum $1,000 contribution the mission seeks from those who sponsor a supper.
Ismail Mohammed of Greenfield Park, a retired CBC accountant, said he had suggested sponsoring the meal to fellow mosque members.
"We don’t celebrate Christmas, but serving humanity is serving God. That is what our teaching says," he observed.
It’s important to help people no matter what their religion is. It’s extremely important not to try to convert them while doing so. :)
