Just an observation from an ex-christian.
No. You had sex with a girl when you were a child. It ended in pregnancy. You are attacking the morality of a 14 year old girl who terminated a pregnancy that would have resulted in a child that neither you or her had the capacity to care for. A girl that preserved your and her own youth, and stopped a child being raised in circumstances that are not fit for any child. You really should be assessing your own morality. What kind of 14 year old boy fucks a 14 year old girl, without protection, gets her pregnant and then runs an online smear campaign against her for doing what was best for her, her family and you? What? You think you had the capacity to raise a child at age 14/15? How would you feed it or look after it? You wouldn’t. You were going to dump it on her or your own parents, live like the carefree little shit you are and occasionally play with the child when you could be bothered and think “Wow, what a good, brave young father I am.” You made the mistake, she went through the trauma of saving your youth for you. You owe her so much better than this. You absolutely disgust me. Less than forward-slash three, you’re real fucking remorseful. That’s poetry that is. You’re breaking my heart kid. That girl should have every right to decide what she wants to do to her body. The idea that you should take responsibility and give birth implies that you are responsible to this fetus and you owe it something. A pregnant person does not owe a fetus anything any more than they owe you an apology for being alive. Try again, pro lifers. Pro-Choice.
I applaud this.
This is some sterling commentary.
This dumbass is also probably assuming the fetus was male. The sex is almost never known when an abortion takes place because it is early on into the pregnancy.
Wonder if he’ll grow up thinking if he buys a woman dinner, she owes him sex.
CRY ME A FUCKING RIVER YOU LITTLE SHIT
Atheism makes me sad. #photoadayapril #atheism #atheism (Taken with instagram)
Oh joy. A new meme displaying ignorance to about atheism. Atheism is the lack of belief in a god. Nothing more, nothing less. It does not necessarily say that there isn’t a god, it merely states that the atheist does not personally believe in one.
Beyond that, this talks of gross misrepresentations of what many atheists believe. To say that the universe has no order is silly, as order readily apparent everywhere and we could not exist without it. To say that the universe is reasonless and purposeless may be true, but that is not to say that individuals cannot find their own reason or purpose for existence.
The questions of morality are simply moronic and speak much more of a nihilist philosophy than an atheist. As evidenced by crime rate statistics, atheists by and large have a much stronger sense of morality than most theists.
As for “produces the ultimate emotional articulation of self-centerdness which is fearfully bent towards the cover up and suppression of belief in an ultimate personal cause who brings order, purpose, and judgment to all things”, I think this is badly saying that atheists actively deny and cover-up the fact that they actually do believe in a “personal cause” (i.e. god?). This is almost inarticulate nonsense based that could only be stated by someone who hasn’t a clue as to what brings about the loss of faith in the first place. There is no evidence for a god, and there is strong evidence against the major events claimed in books talking about god’s existence.
In short, this is a display of grotesque and insulting ignorance toward atheists everywhere.
What an obnoxious little picture. Kudos to Steve for once again stripping it down to the BS it is.

OMFG OUT OF CONTEXT. YOU HAVE TO READ TEH WHOLE BIBUL. IT WAS THE CULTURE OF THE TIME. HJKHLDFJKGHLDKJG
I love how Christians suddenly become wishy-washy liberals when these parts of the Bible come up.
Yeah and then they claim that we should base our morality on the Bible and ask where atheists get our morality from.
My question is if morality comes from god and the Bible is how he communicated that morality to us, what moral principles are we mere mortals supposed to use to determine which parts of the Bible to ignore?
Slavery is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. In fact the Bible is totally cool with slavery.
Misogyny is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. In fact the Bible is totally cool with mysogyny.
Genocide is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. In fact god ordered numerous horrific genocides.
Human sacrifice is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. Ever read the story of Jephthah? (Judges 11:31-39)
holy crap the relevance
“Without a god, where does your morality come from?”
You know those parts of the bible that are completely ridiculous? The parts about stoning adulterers to death, and wearing mixed fibers and working on the sabbath and so on; the parts that you refuse to take seriously even though the book itself commands you must take all of it seriously?
Whatever part of your brain is responsible for working out that those parts of the bible are safe to ignore - that’s where an atheist’s morality comes from.
