Those who disbelieve in God are what I call 'clouded minds'. You don't realise you are one until you are freed from corruption. I know from experience. I was once a disbeliever and then came to realise that people are not educated on who God actually is and how religion and science can coexist.
Atheism should be banned in the United States because it is very wrong, although I am not that religious, I do agree that it should be illegal. I seriously think these atheists should read the Bible! I hate it when some kids these days say that they are atheist, it is absolutely WRONG.
Atheists are sinning against God. Jesus said that "whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven" and atheists are violating this.
America is a Christian nation and atheists should respect that. It was founded on Christian principles and you have freedom of religion but not freedom to have no religion. Read the Bible! Repent atheists!
Atheists think religion is bad, and it is. But you don't have to be religious to believe in Creator. I'm not religious, but i'm not an atheist. One of my friends came forward and told me he was an atheist. I asked him why he was an atheist and he said, "I prayed to God for help, but he never helped me." That's no reason to disbelieve in Creator. Do you atheists seriously think he will help you with everything. Creator put you on earth to fix your mistakes. He won't solve the problems you caused. And stop blaming him for taking away people you care about. It's not his fault you failed or lost someone.
Atheists are sinners. In the Bible Jesus said that "whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven." Matthew 10:33
Clearly they are sinning. America is a Christian nation founded on Christian principles and they should respect that. The Constitution gives you freedom of religion but not freedom to have no religion. Read the Bible and repent
For those saying "ooh, you can't ban other people's beliefs!", Atheism is not a "belief", it is a denial of God and His existence. God created life on Earth- it couldn't have happened by "chance". Don't forget what God teaches, too- he teaches people how to be good and kind, and to give, and share. Atheism doesn't teach ANYTHING AT ALL, but to deny your creator. Have your say, you may not agree, but some might. As God teaches, everyone is different.
Atheism believes that the entire universe, its galaxies and planets simply came by chance and that there is no God or anything. Oooh, religion has no evidence to back things up, but know this: Something cannot be created out of nothing. If we all came here by chance, then what is the point of living? Hence, it is God who created us. Even then, atheists should not be forced into religion. It is something they need to find out for themselves. Atheism was never about science. It was simply about denying God's existence and throwing everything happening in the universe onto chance and luck. Moreover, how can one be an atheist if he ever uses God's name in vain? Nowadays atheists are worshipping figures like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett. If people stopped believing in God, we can expect turmoil, corruption, undermining of the social order and total anarchy.
Freedom of religion? It does not mention anything about atheism, merely changing from one religion to another. Our current Declaration of Human Rights is as corrupt as anyone can guess.
Religious affiliation DOES NOT guarantee That a person has or aspires to the teachings of that affiliation. Non affiliation does not guarantee that a person would NOT have those attributes of affiliated persons, it only states that THEY DO NOT CHOOSE TO BE AFFILIATED., because they don't believe in God. They are still the same moral, well developed, intellectual , ethical persons they always were, period.
It is a constitutional amendmant to have freedom of being religious of whatever you want, partially religious of whatever you want, or stay away from religion entirely.Not only that but also to speak your mind of whatever political topic you want without fear of punishment. (Except democrats.They honor freedom of speech so long as you completely agree with them) and now let the liber haters fill my inbox with messages telling me im a fat racist bigot who simply LOVES nazis
No way. You can’t legislate a belief system. That’s like saying you’re going to make it illegal to like the color red. Even if it was illegal, there’s no way you could enforce it. People are going to think what they think and believe what they believe regardless of what the law tells them.
Otherwise, it is not a freedom to be, it is a coercion to be. All one needs to do here is fill in the blank of "to be" with "to be religious". Ideas either fly or fall on their own right, and prohibiting competing ideas to *theism will not make that particular *theism any more valid; it will only make that society that much more fascist.
If you think we should toss the United States Constitution into the nearest garbage pail, then perhaps you might agree that atheism should be illegal. The Constitution explicitly states that religion should have no hand in government, and government should have no hand in religion. If you want to look outside of the United States, we can also think about this as a moral question. Is it moral to outlaw a religious belief? In no way does a person not believing in god outwardly impact the rest of the public. It is not harmful. Since this is so, it would be morally wrong to impose another’s beliefs onto an atheist.
Atheism is illeagal in some parts of the world and is usually punishable by a gruesome death. In the United States there is no requirement to believe in a creator, supreme being, or god. However, many people in the United States hold such a belief dear and is a core part of their lives.
Every one has the right to believe in what they want. I am not atheist nor do I believe that it is right but I do not think that means we can make it illegal. I am a Christian, I would not want someone making it illegal to be a Christian.
You can't ban a belief, even if you think it's wrong. I can't ban religion any more than I can ban a four-year old believing in dragons, or anymore than you can ban atheism. And what is the basis for banning atheism? Does atheism turn somebody into a murderer? No. Are all atheists paedophiles or thieves? No. It's probably about the same percentage as religious people who are those things.
The fact that this question is being asked at all shows how religions can frequently be in directly conflict with freedom. Atheism is simply the lack of belief in the supernatural, usually due to the lack of evidence.
If freedom OF religion excludes freedom FROM religion, that implies two possibilities.
First, this could imply that only religions are protected by law, leaving out non-believers.
Second, this could imply the "freedom" of one religion over all others, leaving out most religions and all non-believers.
In either of these cases, this "freedom" is granted to some people and not others. There is no good moral case for giving extra freedom or rights to people of faith, especially if you value equality.
People will create their own religion which requires nothing or minimal believe like" god might be true or false and we don't need to believe because no one would interfere anyway" or just find any religion and not doing anything so. Going any further requires violation of human right. And someone would said the first is already wrong. But no matter what case No benefit you will get.
I am not an atheist, but I certainly do believe in the freedom of speech. Imagine if someone said that we should ban Islam from the United States. What if someone said we should ban all black people from the U.S. The first amendment of the constitution says that the freedom of speech can't be oppressed. So why do you want to do just that?
