People that believe in that are literally retarded. It's a scam. Apparently they keep people locked up in camps, Scientologists..
15, I agree. Retarded wasn't to best word to use. I suppose that in my haste to claim the first comment, I put out a poorly phrased comment. Just kidding. But really, I feel sorry for OP's soon-to-be mother in law. She has been brainwashed and the Scientologists will trick her and take advantage of her, and essentially rob her. She needs to get out of there. Scientology is nothing but trouble.
I thought the word "retard" was used perfectly in 1's comment. I realize other religions can seem just as bogus, but Scientology seems like something out of a science fiction book. Oh wait, it is!!! By the way, I am collecting donations for my Narnian religion where Aslon will come save us when the ice queen reappears. Sounds legit right?
Good lord. Some athiests I just can't stand, especially the ones that push their propaganda on everyone. If someone can find faith in something, then why would you want to interfere with that? It's not hurting you when someone believes in something. Let people be.
But it does hurt people when people take their religion to far and start trying to force their beliefs and try to demean people's rights in the name of their religion. So that being said everyone should just shut up and remember that people have the right to believe whatever shit they want as kind as they're not going around shoving their shit down other people's throats like its some magic chocolate dick
70- I totally agree. I'm Atheist myself, but my best friend is Christian. Sure, I don't agree with her beliefs, but I'm not about to try to push my beliefs on her. I can't stand people who do that. Everyone has the right to believe whatever they want, and no one has the right to take that from them.
I am an atheist and my girlfriend is a creationist. We have have debated over our beliefs but they were always clean and there was no name calling and after we still kiss and smile and are happy to be with each other. But to the guy hating atheists who shove things down people's throats, I agree about people not shoving beliefs down people's throats but its hypocritical to act like atheists are the only ones who do it. You only think atheists are bad because the ones who let you know are atheists out of the blue are the ones who shove it in other people's face. I do not share my being an atheist in random conversation that has no relevance to the topic. And besides, it's not like 4 wars have been fought over religion, oh wait...
-91 yeah? How many non-religious organizations raise money the poor, or run soup kitchens, or educate children in third world countries, all for nothing? A lot. But a hell of a lot more are based off religious charity (not just the christians/catholics). And dont mistake my arguments, I am completely unobjective when it comes to religion (agnosticism), I also recognize that religious people (not counting muslims or jehovah's witnesses) can push too far, but at least they promote peace of mind, and not nothingness.
136- I'm an atheist that volunteers at soup kitchens, raises money for the poor, various other community work and am heading to a third world country in the spring to help build a school and help students. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bragging because obviously that's not the point of service, but you make it seem like it's only religious people that do these things. Maybe I just misinterpreted your comment.
-161 You did misinterpret it, but that's okay, out seems quite a few did; I worded the comment poorly. I meant that a lot of non-religious organizations volunteer, but there are many, many more based on religious charity, and hey, I'm not religious either (well more agnostic, I guess) and I volunteer as well with the animal welfare league.
I don't promote nothingness, i promote science, knowledge and basing my life off of a fairy tail. get your facts straight dumbass. atheists can have plenty peace of mind, we just dont use a god as a crutch when the going gets tough, but rather on ourselves, family and friends. all are people who have done a hell of a lot more for me than any "god"
Two very important things to remember, Original Poster: 1, know that your fiance will always defend you when it comes to this topic. 2, don't let your kids be alone with your fiance's mom, until your they are old enough to stand up for themselves and won't come home screaming, "Xeno will come and fuck your guys' shit up for not believing!"
You know, at some point in time, people probably thought the same thing about people that believed in Jesus… and now it's the worlds largest religion. Just something to think about…
"You know, at some point in time, people probably thought the same thing about people that believed in Jesus… " And there are still people who do. I admit, Scientology is more a dangerous, money-stealing cult than a peaceful religion, but what's the main difference between believing that Xenu will punish the non-believers or that *insert name other god* will punish them? For a non-believer, every religion has some 'whatefuck, you really believe that shit?' parts.
So what? That just means that 2.1 billion people believe in a magic man who is also his dad who has magical powers. Longevity or expanse of readership doesn't mean much as far as validity goes; if i got 2 billion people to say 2 + 2=13 it would still make no sense
54- The bible didn't teach Westboro baptist church to be cruel. Fred Phelps did. The bible clearly states that homosexuality is an abomination, yet it never says to hate homosexuals, but rather to love and show compassion to all people. Fred Phelps taught his followers to ignore all of the context around that particular verse and pretty much any verse of the bible that says to accept everybody.
As long as she doesn't brainwash your kids, they should be fine. ;P
