It's good to be reminded how lucky I am to live somewhere where it really doesn't matter. Even if we do have bad weather, curvy roads and tiny cars. Smile

Hey "creationist", are you really a (gulp) "Creationist"?
You seem cool! Aren't y supposed to hate us or something! He he

I wish most of the others weren't so highly strung!

RE: Atheists are so misunderstood :(
Because American media likes to focus on the worst people to gain viewership. It's the local fluff pieces that would tend to focus on the well-behaved atheists and those segments have very little interest.

So basically, as a group, often you're perceived only as good as your worst member.

In my years in America, I never met any of those Christians who protested against gay marriage, etc. (the most intense were the ones at Obama's inauguration with the quotes from the Bible), but I would be lead to believe that American Christians are all about taking peoples' rights away by the few that I see all the time on the news. Frankly, I would never have heard about Young Earth Creationism had it not been for all the atheists who whine about it like it actually affected their lives.
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.
