|Reasons why atheism is terrible|
Blazing Catfur had this to say:
You’re a very poorly read person. Have you not heard of the TDSB’s acquiescence to Sharia law? And it isn’t only them, other school boards in Ontario have also appeased Islam in the same fashion. Google Mosqueteria.
I find it telling that the post starts with an ad-hominem attack. The comment suggests that if I haven’t read everything, I’m somehow ‘poorly read’.
However, I did take the suggestion seriously and Googled ‘mosqueteria’. I found Blazing Catfur’s blog reporting on it, but very few legitimate news agencies. What I did find were signs of people protesting this religious treatment, which was exactly my original point – if they broke the law more often, people would sue or call out their behavior more often. If Muslim’s broke the law as often as Christians do in North America, you’d see them getting sued more often.
For example, The Blaze wrote:
“To provide more in-depth details, the Toronto District School Board has been under fire for allowing an imam to hold Friday prayer services for Muslim students. These weekly religious meetings occur in Valley Park Middle School’s (again, a public educational facility) cafeteria. Between 300 and 400 of the school’s 1,200 students take part in the weekly meeting.”
The bolded portion illustrates my point – they were under fire. People just didn’t sit around and allow it to happen. The same thing happened here as would happen if a Christian was inflicting their religion on students in a public school.
Right now, Christians have the numbers in North America. For every story you can post about Muslim’s breaking a law in North America, I could post 10 or more of Christians doing the same. There are whole sites dedicated to pointing out religious extremism, and the North American ones are littered with daily stories of Christians trying to impose their faith on other people. You might find a story or two on those sites like this one, but not very many.
Also, it’s telling that the person commenting had to go back to 2011 for a story. I wonder if they’re as outraged by, say, the recent stories of Russia’s treatment of homosexuals or Uganda’s law against the LGBT community that allows the government to throw them in jail for life?
Whether they are as outraged by these behaviors as I am is really besides the point – the fact remains that my original point stands. The reason why atheists don’t sue Muslim’s more often is because they’re not breaking the law as often as Christians in North America. They just don’t have the numbers to do it.
BCF? Don’t waste time talking to this asshole. He’s made up his mind and nothing is going to sway him, so fuck it.
As far as him being an atheist? Maybe. But really I think he just has a weed up his ass about Christians.
Oh and really? When some gets called a coward then denies they are a coward. THEN proceeds to give a 600 word explanation on WHY they aren’t a coward……..They’re probably a coward.
That entire comment is an ad-hominem attack. The person even seems reluctant to believe me when I say I’m an atheist, despite not knowing me at all.
I also think they missed the entire point of the article. I wasn’t called a coward. The piece wasn’t trying to explain why I’m not a coward. It was a piece explaining why Muslim’s don’t get sued in North America as often as Christians. It has nothing to do with cowardice, and everything to do with the volume of offenses against the law.
Athiests, pick on Christians, for one reason only, they turn the other cheek unlike Muslims who love lawfare and revenge. Thankfully, I have some honest atheist friends in my circle who tell it like it is and are the first to state that Muslims are much more dangerous to society than Christians ever were or could be. Very poor and transparent rationalization on your part.
The first part of the comment was basically a repeat of what Blazing Catfur said. The last part I quoted above.
I’m not sure who these anonymous ‘atheists’ are that said this, but they don’t speak for me. They might believe that, but I don’t.
At this juncture, I would agree that worldwide, Islam is more dangerous. Christianity went through the Enlightenment, while Islam has not. But your claim that Christianity couldn’t be as dangerous is flat out wrong. Both are Abrahamic religions. Both are built on ancient dogma and superstition.

Atheists fear muslims so they treat them with far greater deference than they do Christians. If atheists do not like that little fact, tough shit. It IS a fact.
You’re throwing around the word ‘fact’ but I’m not sure you understand what it means. It’s not a fact. I routinely confront Muslims on their religious dogma and I do it in the same manner I do Christians. Muslims and Christians are still human beings and I treat them as such. It has nothing to do with their religion.

Palidogs. They are sub human. Treat them accordingly
It should be legal to shoot and kill everyone there
They should be terrorized daily until they leave Britain.Death to Islam
Excuse me if I don’t take anything you say seriously. I don’t endorse terrorism or the use of violence.

Give the blogger a break. After all our own politicians are to stupid to see what Islam is . Importing half a million people whose only goal is to lie, cheat than kill us if not paid, to let us live another day.The MSM pimps for this cult of human sacrifice. Even pastors or priests are fooled. Islam is less a Religion than a political system of authoritarianism for desert raiders.Using a god to permit there barbarity towards Women, gays, children.Most Atheists would pee there pants in an Islamic Nation. They fear it all right. because there is no love or mercy from Muslims.He probably doesn’t know that prayer in school has been banned but not gays with oral sex posters in a grade 6 class. The many many people now under investigation at the TDSB for sex crimes, including making child porn.The Bible is banned in schools except not the Koran.Our law that derived its moral stand on the ten commandments are being removed from courts. Mean while sharia law is being pushed on us daily by even our own companies. Cambell’s halal soup any one?Because free speech is under attack from Socialists to stop us from learning about how monstrous Islam is world wide to any Religion or individual.
This blogger is a Jonesie. He likes his cool-aide with double the arsenic.With a set of blinders
Not sure if that was an attempt to come to my rescue…but that’s one attempt I could do without.
I also don’t think he read the article he’s commenting on. I’m not sure any of them got past the first paragraph or two before flaming me. I wonder if they read the post two down from the original one, titled: Does Religion Deserve Respect?
I hope you’ll excuse me if I’m not comforted by the argument that one religions adherents would treat me better than another’s. Both religions have an abysmal record when it comes to how they treat homosexuals, women and/or atheists.
I also mentioned a story in the article where an atheist was severely beaten by Muslims for writing ‘God doesn’t exist’ on the Internet.
None of the laws we have were based on the Ten Commandments, either. If they were, you’d be killing your kids if they talked back to you. Three of the Ten are about worshiping your God. In a secular country, you are not forced to worship a specific deity. The other ones were around before Christianity was.
I will reiterate my original position: I think both religions are harmful. I think they both teach people to act badly, and reinforce that behavior with a God. Muslims don’t get sued in North America as much as Christians, because there are more Christians and therefore, more Christians breaking the law.
