I think I get it. Theologically speaking your an atheist, or at least an agnostic. However, you do not like the THINK MY WAY OR **** YOU, YOU MORONIC PIECE OF BACKWARDS DOG **** mentality that SOME atheists possess. Would this be an accurate statement?

I just like trolling the devout.

Evangelistic atheists are functionally no different from the guy shouting at me in the subway station to repent.

Interestingly, more Christian terrorist acts have happened in the US than every other religion combined.

Considering we drive miatas, we can assume most of us can appreciate a good looking man.

Having said that. Dreamy? Nope, sorry, Tom Brady is way prettier a man than Tebow.

I'm sure after the pats/broncos game, Brady went up to tebow and whispered in his ear "I'm your God now"

I think most athiests resort to tacit smugness than evangelism.

however!

if you bring religion into my house, I will smite thee upside the frontal lobe.

I also do not like being forced to participate in religious activities outside of the context of church or church-like celebrations.

sports arenas are not an appropriate place for singing hymns. but I do not tell the other 40 to 300 thousand people to stop. I just sit quietly and roll my eyes while they all do their thing.

I actually have no issue at all with christmas carols and whatnot. I also recognize that other religions have holidays too. but I dont act a fool and pretend that hanukkah is bigger than yom kippur just because it happens in december.

oh and if you come up to me and say "this is a christian country!"... your god help you.

^I'm not christian, but this is a christian country. Everything from the pledge of allegiance, to the words printed on our currency, to our policy making is heavily influenced by christianity.

Heck, I spent most of elementary school being told I'm going to hell for not being christian. This was in multiple public schools, in NYC (arguably the most diverse city in the world).

We have no "official religion" spelled out in no uncertain terms before we got to the first comma in 1A. If Tebow (or anyone else for that matter) wants to answer the "tolling of the iron bell that calls the faithful to their knees to speak the softly spoken magic spells" ****, have at! You want to make fun of him for doing so? ****, have at! Both are protected rights.

I'm not saying there are not contradictions to this in more recent documents, because obviously there are. My point is that these are more recent leanings and were NOT the intentions of the 'founding fathers'

Christ, I may need to move this rant to the "Politics" section

Unfortunately, I do have to agree with Oliver.

Although you could reasonably argue that the US was fundamentally founded on the basis of tax evasion, it's impossible to ignore the strong Protestant undertones in most of the architecture of the young America.

For example, the US Deceleration of Independence, which could be considered to the foudnational document of the entire nation, states in the first three paragraphs:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them (...)

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (...)

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
The phrase "divine providence," in the context of a late 18'th century society, describes a theological belief that God (that would be the Judeo-Christian God, specifically) takes an active interest in the day-to-day operation of the world, and exerts influence over it. In other words, they were saying that, in declaring war against King George III, "we rely upon God to protect us."
