    We get this tripe from the idiots that cry about others shoving religion down their throats...as they shove their idiocy down every throat they can.

    Well...you pretty much suck at just about everything you listed, except loving yourself. You got that one down though...make yourself a badge.

    Well...since you're the one attacking a poster's character, I really don't think you are much of a of compassion, kindness, empathy, or any of the other qualities I listed.

    But, thanks for playing. Do feel free to pick up your parting gifts on the way out.
    Thanks from Dragonfly5

    I was in Scouts. I remember the church services. I don't remember them being "optional".

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation is unveiling a freethought badge to reward young nonbelievers and challenge the Boy Scouts of America's discrimination against the nonreligious. The badge, featuring a red "A" based on a symbol of atheism and agnosticism popularized by distinguished scientist and atheist Richard Dawkins, is being issued in collaboration with the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science.
    The Boy Scouts of America formally discriminates against nonreligious boys and their families, officially excluding atheists, agnostics and nonbelievers. Currently, the organization maintains "that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing his obligation to God."
    "The Freedom From Religion Foundation maintains instead that no one who discriminates against the nonreligious can grow into the best kind of citizen," says FFRF co-founder Annie Laurie Gaylor, who is co-president of FFRF with her husband Dan Barker.
    "It's what you do — not what you believe — that makes you a good person," adds Barker, a former evangelical minister who is also co-founder of The Clergy Project, a support group for ministers who lose their faith.
    FFRF, at the urging of its member Richard Kirschman, has produced a badge similar to the Boy Scouts' merit badges, which are typically sewn on uniforms or sashes.
    Scouts who wish to earn this badge are asked to help disprove the group's misguided claim that nonbelievers cannot be good citizens. The requirements, paralleling typical merit badge requirements, ask Scouts to learn about secularism and the rich history of dissent from religion.

    Interesting that an Organization that claims to believe in nothing is trying give badges to the Boy Scouts for believing in nothing. Now the FFRF is claiming Bigotry against a group that believes in nothing and stands for nothing. I guess they now stand for "Free Thinking", whatever that is, maybe they are finally standing for something. Anyway the scouts are the brunt of this nonsense because they stand for God and a moral lifestyle.
    This is probably the most intelligent thing the FFRF has done so far.

    The FFRF don't "believe in nothing." First you say they don't believe in anything, and then you say they believe in free-thinking. You have admitted numerous times that they are for free thought.

    As an Occultist, you think on dogma-induced impulses. That, coupled with the codified words that you worship, render you verbally retarded. It is also why you hate free thinkers: What they do is rational, which is the antithesis of dogma.

    Name one moral thing the big scouts have done. This should be good.

    Hope that fact helps.
    I have been an atheist for 17 years now, and I'm as happy as can be now that I have my Master's degree, my wife, and am teaching English full-time, thank you very much.

    Let's see your source for that supercilious claim about miserable atheists. This should be good. I don't think they're the ones murdering little babies in faith-healing scams and raping little boys in Catholic schools.

    There is nothing anywhere that says the FFRF are insisting the boy scouts change. They will, however, do what they have the right to because, you know, they live in a democracy.

    Whoa, did I just prove everything you said in this thread was wrong!
    You didn't address a single word that Djinn wrote.

    Nowhere does it say the FFRF are preventing religious people from practicing their faith.

    So now liberals are right? Yet you always claim they are wrong.
