Freya,

Are you deleting my posts?   If there is to be no discussion, why are you letting other people thru?  The Niemoller quote seemed the perfect response to the stuff lindy is saying..

Reply to lindy:

"Pastor Niem?ller, a leading figure during the 1930s in Nazi Germany. After the war, he said:

First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I said nothing. Then they came for the Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat, so I did nothing. Then they came for the trade unionists, but I was not a trade unionist. And then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did little. Then when they came for me, there was no one left to stand up for me.

Another quote to answer would be the one about :
"the price for freedom is eternal vigilance."

Personally, I find all this pedantic discourse pretentious.
Atheist is something I am. Religion is something diests do. I don?t feel
compelled to justify it, defend it, or reference philosophers, writers and
 Nobel scientists to give it credence and validation. Nor do I feel the
need to wave banners, march in the street, go on a hunger strike before City
Hall or engage in any other demonstrative expression of my reality, including
mock prayers, etc.  -- as some religious zealots, and evangelists for any
cause, including that of anti-theism ? feel driven to do.

 

I?m simply an atheist. BFD.  It would be nice to find
others in the Atlanta area who aren?t on some kind of crusade, but apparently
I?m dreamin
