RE: Apostate
I don't get it?

Is apostate something like an insult or whatever? Why should I even care? I know if I have a apostate cancer later in life that is suppose to be bad. Evil_monster

The big question for me is why I should even give a damn? Drinking Beverage


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

Why do we care about this definition? Also, Atheism does not have to be political but anything can become political. Some Christian's vote on the president based on their religious beliefs but not all. Does that matter? Political ideologies literally erupt from numerous things just putting atheism ignores views about anarchy, aristocracy, autocracy, communism, democracy, fascism, monarchy, oligarchy, plutocracy, stratocracy, theocracy, etc. There are numerous political ideas that erupt from a ton of different views. Anything can become political does not mean it will always succeed but that it can exist.

If anything though, money is one of the largest(if not the largest) influential factor within politics no matter what government it is or what people's views are.

Very few governments don't rely on money and the vast variety of them have plenty to do with it.





Either way, why does it matter about a dictionary definition? It could potentially change and if it does would that still matter? Obviously it matters if you are talking and using words but in the sense that it means anything to atheists like myself.

We pass a law that says that is an offence punishable by death to belong to any religion.

Now people have a choice.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
