Hm, I can't tell who's worse. It's either your boyfriend or your parents. Also, if your boyfriend is an atheist, good luck having Christmas with your parents and him.

I'm with 63. I'm atheist and don't associate Christmas with any of the religious stuff, but instead with family, friends, and vacation. It's by far my favorite time of year.

Dude, Christians know that there are people out there who don't believe in god. However, for someone to deliberately go out of their way to say something like the ops boyfriend did is not only rude but disrespectful of her parents and other people's beliefs. Mocking others for their beliefs isn't ok when its done by atheists but not ok by Christians.

#15, yeah those picket signs people are insane, but some famous person (I forget! Woops!) said something along the lines of "Don't argue with stupid people. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience." No use arguing with zealots.

I am an atheist, but would never question someone's views. The only time I even talk about religion with my peers or Christian family is when it was the cause of a war or we see something like a "god hates fags" sign. It's people like op's boyfriend that makes us all look bad.

I agree. Just because you don't agree with something, doesn't mean you have to be a total asshole. I don't consider myself religious at all but as long as people aren't using religion as a method of oppression, I see no problem in it.

Westboro Baptist Church is the group responsible for sentiments such as "God hates fags" and "Thank God for dead soldiers." But you're right, we shouldn't judge others on their beliefs.................

87 - Oh, please. Give the WBC some credit for being thundercunts of their own volition. They're asshats using hate tactics to bring in publicity, money, etcetera and if they didn't have their religion to justify it they'd find something else.

The thing is, there is no 'atheist handbook' that advocates the type of bigotry the WBC espouses. However, all the stuff about their sky fairy hating gays can be found in the bible, and Christians try to gloss it over. The bible is full of hateful passages, even though there are some good bits, but many Christians prefer to ignore them, or pretend they are being 'interpreted wrong'. It's a good thing it's just a bunch of made-up stories.

True Christians don't pull that crap. And I think ur being very disrespectful but calling it a fairy tale considering everything about evolution contradicts something else in science. Plus the Bible isn't a hateful book. U can hate sin, but not people, and I wouldn't call that a bad thing.

Definitely FYL. I'm not one of those people who are obsessed with religion (actually, I don't really know what I believe in), but even I think that was pretty disrespectful of him and warrants a serious talk with him.

You can't blame him for interrupting a nice, family barbecue to announce to an extremely religious family that God isn't real? I'm not religious and even I would be pissed at someone being so incredibly rude!

They reacted too harshly? Not only was it rude as the previous comments stated but, its THEIR house. The boyfriend came over to their house. When you're at someone elses house you respect their rules. That was very rude. People that start shit will eventually mess with the wrong person and get.knocked the fuck out. ;-)

Not really, I can't see any reason why the two is them can't have an interreligious relationship. Unless of course OPs boyfriend continues to be so intolerant.

By  SkyGuy32  |  26

That's a big problem. If OP's family is extremely religious and he can't accept it, then there will be a lot of major problems with OP's family in that relationship. However, if it was an isolated incident and he was 'just kidding around,' OP will probably just have a 'talk' with him.

Atheists who go around preaching that God doesn't exist are just as bad as Christians who go around shoving religion down people's throats. Please can we all just live our lives and believe what we want to believe. Your boyfriend was looking for a fight. I don't understand why he would want to upset the parents of someone he cares about.

I totally agree. Unless someone specifically asks or your in a philosophical/religious conversation, I don't think you should share. And even then, you shouldn't be as blunt and blatant as OP's boyfriend. It's just rude.
