Do you think it's fair atheists have to hear so many god related statements throughout the day?

Report as

Yes I do. People have the right to speak their minds and voice their opinions. Atheists have this right no less than anyone else. Freedom of speech applies to all people equally and you can't be more fair than that.

When I politely answer in my Athiest opinion, my answers are deleted at least on this site!
Report as
I'm sorry to hear that. As long as you carry on your discourse with courtesy and respect your opinion has every bit as much right as anyone else's. I've seen other people express Atheistic opinions, both politely and otherwise, and had their comments allowed to stand.

Nope, but I think it's the same vice versa.

Either ways, a ****storm occurs whenever someone mentions religion, or God.

Yes because freedom of speech and religion is a thing that many people in this country ( the flag that is in your profile pic ) have fought and died for, and we're not communist's, so if you don't like that than move or change your profile pic.

I'm patriotic all the way. ( if god made the grand canyon and you can pray, please ask god to stop letting children die in fires and accidents etc. ).
Report as
What does children dying have to do with your question, you asked a question about the fairness of what you have to hear about God, and you bring up dying children in accidents, I don't get your comparison, are you comparing you being your problem with hearing about God everyday to the death of children, Wow.!!

how did you bring up communism and capitalism, and how did you bring up kicking a citizen out of his own country? contradicting much?
considering his question was about religion, you brought up politics, while he is still on the topic of religion.
Report as
The question is regarding a freedoms and I didn't kick him out, I suggested if he dose not think its fair, he can leave, another freedom we still have, communist countries don't have this freedoms, I think that they may be able to accommodate this persons special needs.
Report as
not all communists country's are like that bad actually. and yes to an extent it is about freedoms, but he did not mean it that in dept im sure. do we have freedom of speech in the country of America, yes, you do. but when only 1 group of all the religions cant stop spreading there thoughts, then people will speak out. it is kind of to far, honestly, how many times have a christian come to your door step? hand a book? call you?, now compare that to any of the other religions, combined.
Report as
I've never had a Christian knock on my door! Just Jehovah Witnesses & Mormons, not the same thing!!
Report as
lol, i have. and more then once. and i have gotton phones calls from people telling me to become christian, and idk them. and i have had flyers handed. but how many other religions do this?
Report as
Some people's faith tells them to go out and preach the gospel, and it's not worded as a suggestion, so not doing so would go against their faith, thus putting them in a state of defiance, or rebellion with God.
Report as
i still think of it as very disrespeectful. i have my religion, and they have theirs. there is no reason why i should leave my god. when they start preaching, i always just tell them im muslim, and shut the fvk up. usally works :D lol
Report as
And you have that freedom to do that too, isn't that great ? God bless America, the land of the free.
Report as
or should we change the lyrics to that song.. God bless America land that I love, so that atheist won't be offended.
Report as
it just shows how revolved with religion they are. i never say god bless to anyone, because i hate when they say it to me. and now you are again bringing politics to this. lol, can you keep of that topic for just a few mins? lol, shows you even more how america is to much into religion, its starting to effect the citizens XD
Report as
And we're free to be affected or influenced how ever we want, freedom, that has been the point I've been trying to make during this whole discussion, I'm not pushing any other agenda right now, only the topic of freedom of speech and religion, I am not trying to convert you, I just believe in freedom, referring back to the original question" is it fair that athiest should have to hear about God all the time, and my reply is yes, because of freedom, and I am saying it again, YES, because we are American and we can be whatever we want within the law and constitution..next time you drive by a military cemetery you should look and see how many have died I'm combat protecting that freedom, I'm not making this about God, you are, I believe in God, but I don't believe that you have to be forced to
Report as
well, i can see your point. i was kind of focused on the forcing thing, and you were focused on the freedom to say whatever you want. i can see your point actually now. i mean, i still think you should not say you should become blank religion, but saying something like god bless, would be ok. i just personaly never mention him, but i can see your point now. sorry i was kind of off topic. by the way, nice wording in the last one

Do you think it fair that Republicans have to listen to Democrats, or the other way around? Or those that don't belong to either party has to listen to both of the skewed points of view? Get over it! People are all different and have different points of view. Either listen or don't. but don't whine about it. There are enough whiners in the world.

because religious people always have to talk about god. where as Atheists, are smart enough to not bother people with there beliefs. like i recently ask a question about quotes, and got 3 religious responses, i ask for quotes, not parts of the bible, and i am not even christian damn it, lol

You asked, they answered. Don't complain. Maybe you should specify you don't want Christians to respond.
Report as
thats kind of sad, because i have to specify no christian responce, but i dont have to specify the other religions, because they usally dont do that. out of all the religions, which 1 shares theres the most? so when i ask a questions, i must say no christian responces, but i DONT have to say no Islamic, Hindu, jewish, etc responces, because most them dont have to share there beliefs every second fo the day
Report as
but then, if an Atheists decides to look at it, he will, again, hear about christians, like the the person asking this question is pointing out
