`LostKitten suggested that I make a stamp like this out of the similar ones in my gallery. =P Tadaaa!

The rant, rehashed:

I'm tired of hearing people say that atheists and agnostics are moral savages with no respect for anyone or anything. There are just as many religious jerks out there-- it's the nature of assholes to be assholes.

Also, if religion is the only thing that keeps you from stealing, lying, murdering, and cheating on your significant other, or perhaps committing suicide, I am officially scared of/for you. :fear:

A DD? SRSLY? Thank you guys. XD; I'm a bit overwhelmed.

I'd like to re-clarify:


I don't hate religious people. I love my super awesome religious friends. I know there are plenty of religious people that aren't jerks, you don't have to tell me :giggle: there are jerks in every group. I was just a little tired of hearing that people like me are "amoral." I can't force myself to believe in a god-- I tried-- and I wish that weren't some people's basis for telling me and other people like me that we're bad people. Don't judge a person by their religion (or lack thereof) alone. Judge them by their actions. :)

In all religious books it's said: "Trade with Tradekeep, he has the best trades!"

There is no point in having a religion...
Religion is very debatable.

So religion is very debatable, but it's pointlessness isn't?

Man, if atheists didn't have morals, this world would be utter chaos far beyond how it ever has been. I'm part of a religion, but some people take it way too far and start making ridiculous assumptions. I start to wonder if common sense exists.

Religion is a SHIT. That's why so many war in the world (in the Middle East, by example).

I always find it amusing when religious nut cases act like only THEY have a monopoly on pretty much everything "moral". So you're telling me that if you didn't have faith in whatever god you worship, you'd go out on a killing spree? You'd be choking random passers if you weren't reading your book of fairy tales? You evidently aren't a good person to begin with. That's like telling people that someone's best friend is a good person as long as they keep taking their meds.

I knew what it was like to know good from bad even before I was being told all this religious crap. The moment I left religion was one of the best moments of my life, & I immediately started to feel a lot happier. It only took common sense, and my entire knowledge of biology and science as a whole to see past the bullshit being thrown at me.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to piss off a lot of Christians for saying this, but here I go.

I don't believe the rapture will ever happen on this planet, or that we're at the "end times". Seriously, the whole thing sounds ridiculous.

If someone needs religion to have any life rules and morals... then I suggest to rethink this life.

Honestly, it saddens me when people think this kind of thing.. My own dad's not even religious, and yet he seems to think I both obsess and despise religion―simply because I've opened up more to him (something he had been asking me to do for a long time, btw) on my disagreement of how some people were enforcing their beliefs on others. He doesn't seem to understand that just because I criticize a specific group of people doesn't mean I hate the entire religion―and it certainly doesn't mean I'm stepping on their right to their personal belief, seeing as; "One man's liberty ends where another man's begins".

||RANT OVER||
(Sorry for that, I'm just still in shock that my own father would think this, and that his logic could be this skewed. I had to say it at least once somewhere, or else I would've exploded! lol)

Anyways, great post! I'm definitely glad to see more people showing that we're not monsters!
