Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" So what gives you the right to determine if someone of a different religion or lack thereof marries or not? Oh, waiiiit.... that's right. It doesn't. "


I never said that I had the right to declar if someone could marry or not marry, I said my opinion on marriage. never said i would try and prevent a non religious couple from marrying did i?

Oh bullshit. It's pretty clear by what you said that you think everyone who doesn't believe as you do should have to have "separate but equal" rights. It's not your damn business what religion anyone is-or how they define their marriage- which is a legal agreement, with or without religion.




Pointing your pious little finger and saying essentially "well IM MORE married than you" is not only very offensive and condescending, but also makes you look like a holier than thou class A b***h.

Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" No, you just subtly imply it. That's MUCH better. "



How? Show me anywhere where i implied i thought i was better than anyone because of their faith, lack of, or view on marriage?

People who are religious are just as guilty as people who are not for failing marriages.



I am incredibly insulted when religious people say things that clearly indicate that they think, as an atheist that I:



A.) Am flippant or shallow when it comes to matters of the universe and general existence.
B.) That I am uneducated, unwilling to understand, or under exposed to "the right" things.
C.) That I could be "as good" as them if I cared to, but I just would rather go to hell :roll:



I don't wish them to come down to reality, I leave them alone. There is a lack of respect because it is socially acceptable to not trust or look down on an atheist.

I don't think a marriage is more sacred than a civil union. And I don't see why someone should be permitted to marry if ONLY they are religious. This sounds so ridiculous IMO.

My MIL is ridiculous religious, and was heart broken that our wedding ceremony didn't mention anything about God, even though she knows we're agnostic. She's also on her 5th marriage. Just sayin, don't think hers is necessarily any more special than ours simply becuase she believes in an afterlife in heaven. Just sayin.

Lol, okay. I never even asked the woman who I quoted what religion she is, never thought it mattered. I know nothing about religion, to me.. religion is religion. haha.

Oh, you can, you just have to call it something else, because somewhere along the line, "marriage" became their word.

So because my opinions on marriage and where it comes from differ from others makes me a Class A b***h?? What is wrong with the world? SEriously ppl, just because I have a differnce in opinion because I view things differently does NOT mean I feel I am superior to any one of you. That is like saying if a mom says she only feeds her kid organic foods and never goes to McDonalds that she things she is a better mom because she doesnt believe in Processed foods or junk food...please.

That's pretty much exactly what i got from what you said, actually. That you BELIEVE that ONLY people who have beliefs that match yours should be able to call their marriage a marriage.

That's exactly what she meant. But somehow that's not supposed to be offensive.
