Causing A Stir

It seems my post on atheism has struck a chord. The Smirking Chimp picked it up and at last count there were 106 comments, and the very busy blog What Really Happened linked to it as well. As if that wasn't enough attention for one litte post, my father has also decided to weigh in. I had a hard time deciding whether or not to provide him a platform for his outlandish ideas, but in the end, I realized that I can't run from my roots, and it's important for me to own my history as well as my beliefs. Besides, he'd just get it published elsewhere, so I might as well be the first. Scroll down past "Atheism Doesn't Mean Amoral" to find my father's public airing of his personal grievances. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Hey Liberal Girl. Gotta favor to ask....Could you lonk to the newly created community site Conservative Amnesty? It's over on my blog at the top. We would be honored if you could help out this idea

LG~

WOW, 130 + comments on the combined sites and counting! My 'physics lesson' seems so last week. Who knew? So many secular humanists flying underneath the radar....except for that of those astute attendees at the D.C meeting.

Dav--Done, Conservative Amnesty is now on my blogroll. Happy to help, it's a great idea, extending the olive branch and all that.

Dale--If the numbers are as low as suggested by polls, between comments and emails, I may hear from every single one!

I'm not sure why this person bothers to call himself your father. It seems that the fact of this historic association simply aggravates him. Besides which, if I were in your shoes, I wouldn't miss him terribly if he were to disassociate completely. Best of luck in avoiding this genetic anomaly.
And was he really only 12 when you were born? Whoa! that's really sick.

Yellow Dog--Maybe we're the same person, after all, we've never been seen in the same place at the same time.

Rory--Thanks

Anonymous--Yes there are.

Anonymous 2--I'm hoping you're kidding, and I hope I'm being overly cautious by pointing out that my dad's piece was satire (you know, making fun of the religious extremism out there).

Wow, I step away from Blogsville for a couple of days and WHAM! Great read LGN, and you've provided hours of comment reading at the Smirking Chimp. Knock 'em dead girl.

Local Crank--A good motto for fine living.

BigNewsDay--Thanks, there are a lot of great comments there. It seems many of us are tired of being looked down on and marginalized.

Yes, I agree. I live my life much better than most these so called Christians. I get quite offended at being labeled amoral. I heard a coworker refer to Europe as being amoral just this afternoon because of th lower percentage of Christians over there, and I wanted to smack the crap out of him. Isn't it against one of their Commandments to pass judgement on others?
