    They have every right in America to canvass for atheism, in the same way Christians have the right to canvass for their church.

    The FFRF are intelligent because they oppose totalitarian dogma and religious discrimination. You hate them because you are an Occultist who lives by dogma that was dictated to you by codified words.

    LMAO! How are they forcing their atheist views on the scouts? No one is required by any external control to be an atheist, and every FFRF member willingly chose to join it. Do you know what the word, offer means? It is the antithesis of force.

    You're just upset that the Establishment Clause gives people the right not to believe in the totalitarian dogma that you do.

    Just because atheists don't believe in the supernatural puppet master that you do doesn't mean they "believe in nothing." Your assertion makes no sense at all.

    Ideologies are not beliefs.

    This is exactly why your posts are so asinine and supercilious: You think groups of people are all antipodal, homogenous categories that all act and think alike.

    Atheists don't believe in God, but you don't know what they believe. Ask them.

They have been practicing at Bullying and are very good at it
    By that idiotic logic, Jehovah's Witnesses are bullying people by offering them their fascist Watch Tower publications that they hand out to people.

    Are you just trolling, or are you really so verbally retarded that you don't know the meaningful difference between the words, offer and bully. If you don't, my English students have higher vocabularies than you do, and they are 19 years old and English isn't their first language.

    And there is nothing wrong with opposing dogma and canvassing for atheism.

    If you had your way, you'd outlaw atheism and force everyone to be Christian. In Saudi Arabia, the state will chop your head off if you canvass for atheism. This is exactly why your brand of Christianity is called the American Taliban.

    If you don't want to move to Vatican City, you'd better go buy yourself a giant wooden cross. That way, whenever you're offended by democracy's tolerance for those of us who reject totalitarian dogma, you and that pedophilia advocate, James Dobson can climb up there so he can nail you to it.

    They oppose homophobia and religious discrimination, of course. They have every right to.

    Atheists have always believed in bettering themselves through learning, and bettering others through teaching.

    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.
    I am just repeating what some atheist have stated here. They believe in nothing and Bald is a Hair Color.
