atheist asshole?
After posting on another thread, I was thinking about Dr. Laura. I used to listen to her in her heyday when I was a stay at home mom and looking for support (that phase didn't last long); I didn't buy into her religious crap then but could tolerate most of it, except her stance on gays. She pushed her Jewishness and reliance on the bible/tradition to the hilt.Lecture_preist
She is described as a life long atheist who converted to Judaism (sp?) later in life when she became pregnant with her son. Fast forward to 2003, she quietly deconverted and I don't know what she believes now but I have a suspicion she might be returning to her atheist roots. Even that asshole can't live in fantasy for long, to her credit.
Here's my dilemma/questions:
how can an atheist proclaim moral superiority? (I'm assuming Dr Laura is an atheist but you can take her out of it, how would Any atheist do this?)with no bible to beat on others what is left?

How can an atheist be such a right wing asshole? Do you know any atheists like this?
Just wondering...D.

RE: atheist asshole?
Trick question.

See I'm an asshole, but I'm mostly liberal. But I have a strong left half that is more fascist by nature. They compete and the result is liberal asshole.

But yeah, I know atheists who are assholes other than me. Most of them are. Because people are jerks by nature and have to overcome that. It's the true test god gave us. Our loving god. Praise be to jebus.

I thought this thread referred to the colonoscopy I had done today.

But otherwise, I'd have to agree that Doc Laura and Lucradis are both assholes. One is just more fun to chat online with.

RE: atheist asshole?
It's not what you think that makes you morale. It's what you do to and for others, that matters. I don't think anyone has the power to proclaim themselves superior over others, unless those they claim to be of lesser stock allow them to do so. They can presume they are, but that's just arrogance and the observations of others would reveal the truth of the matter.
