It's about to get even more difficult for non-believers:

Well Sessions does suck at his current job.

On the other hand, the Marxists want to rob, rape and murder everyone.  Religious liberty is the least of what they erode.

Enlightenment utopia didn't last long in its original home.  It has persisted a bit longer in Russia, China and other shit-holes.  Putin is Satan, he doesn't like Pussy Riot messing with old Russian cathedrals.

Well, he isn't here to actually learn anything, but only to preach to us what he believes.

The sad reality of people like mTrap is that he thinks he is changing anyone's views.  But better he wastes his time here than bothers lesser-intelligent sites...

This guy had a YouTube channel on atheism for over a year and only recently told his family and friends he's an atheist.

Not clever to out yourself.  It is like going outside, locking the door behind you, and realizing the keys are still inside!

Jewish-Nazis need to be a protected identity in the Democrat party.

I'm glad the person understood eventually that atheism was a rational decision, but I don't really care too much about his struggle.  It is way too common.   And that IS the problem.  He wouldn't have had to go through a struggle if he choose to go from apolitical to political.  He wouldn't have had to struggle to go from Republican to Democrat or vice versa.  He wouldn't have had to announce astruggle to go from  conservative to liberal. 

He had to struggle to accept he was rational.  And that is the sad part.

I came out Nazi in Tel Aviv?  Probably not a good idea.  Best to move to Berlin, and not tell people why.

Moving from D to R or R to D ... isn't hard, it is moving from one extremist to another.  And since when is "atheist" a political party or is Alex Jones telling the truth about y'all?

This is how religion works: I don't like it, so I'll claim my religion is against it, then you can't do it either.

I liked this video.  He seems like a really nice guy.  I wish I could model his behavior, but I don't think I could ever be so gracious.

Not to sure about that, in the current climate political standing is felt so strongly by people that if those you know are one way politically, it might cause issues to switch from one to another

In my case, it is so easy to understand, and it resonates like a metaphorical gong.  Or to put it another way:  Been there.  Done that!

I like Genetically Modified Skeptic, Cosmic Skeptic, and Rationality Rules for YouTube videos from an atheist's perspective.

Well, for weak people, I suppose.  I don't base my conclusions on those people around me.
