The fact that we are atheists doesn't mean we can't defend ourselves because we've no imaginary friend to justify it!

Ever been to a meeting of atheists?  In large part they are pro Clinton, pro Obama, pro socialist anything, pro Marxist, etc.  Rather ridiculous and boring actually.

Certainly doesn't mean one is equal to the other.

You got it wrong, you didn't went to an Atheist meeting, you went to a Communist meeting, who happens to be also atheists.
You can't have atheist meetings, because there's no mass, no church, no associations, no nothing, Just plain people going around their business and not caring about worshiping any imaginary friend.

You most certainly can have an Atheist organization.

It's just Non-Prophet.

 Cheesy bad-um tsshhh!

In my experience there's no link between atheism and political ideology. I'm an atheist and verge on anarchism, I know some atheists which lean to conservative, some which have socialist views.

Guess I'll make that my sig, all the cool kids have one...

I don't know about that.  It reminds me of the Organization of Procrastinators who decided to hold a protest.

Look this is all too complicated.  It's like the guy in the bar who decides to put the make on a blind girl.  Finally he asked her if she's got a boyfriend.  She replied...

"Actually, I'm not seeing anyone."

Hmmm.....



Far-Left Atheist Group Works With IRS To Crack Down On Churches…


The Internal Revenue Service has settled a lawsuit brought by a secular activist group, reportedly agreeing to adopt standards for determining and investigating whether churches and religious organizations have violated restrictions on political activity.

The precise terms of the settlement are still unclear, as is how the IRS will amend its policies to enforce tax law on churches in a way that is palatable to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which has long decried “rogue political churches.”

The IRS and the Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a joint motion for dismissal July 17, though the court has not officially closed the case, according to Christianity Today.

That said, the atheist group has said that an unspecified settlement agreement is underway.

Freedom From Religion Foundation co-resident Annie Laurie Gaylor called the IRS’s decision to settle the case — a legal battle that began in federal court in Wisconsin back in 2012 — “a victory,” despite the moratorium currently in place on all IRS investigations of nonprofit groups.
