Non-Religious Intolerance at Frihost




I totally cringe when a group of people such as atheists are ridiculed to the extent they have been in the Religious Intolerance at Frihost thread. Some of our members at Frihost are atheist, I can't understand how this is allowed, one atheist was actually called a 'poo poo head' in the discussions there, can you believe it?! Isn't that supposed to be against Frihost Forum rules as well?

With such sophisticated opponents apparently working against them, how could an atheist ever feel comfortable posting here at Frihost?

I want to enjoy this... but, I know exactly how it's going to play out already :/

I don't understand why certain things are allowed either. I stay out of the P&R forums for just that reason.

@Ankhanu, We could easily see some unreasoned rantings and ravings, depending on who replies here, but there should now be more leeway for it to go off topic (or not) as i'm the author of the blog.

It could equally just be ignored though, but I will have made my point regardless.

@standready, A desperate unsubstantiated claim of 'religious intolerance' was made about Frihost, and I felt it important to present an alternative perspective..

Don't make fun of them. It will only make it worse Sad

I LOLed.

Still not touching that other megacomplex of text with a ten thousand foot series of tubes though. ._.

I can't see anything being made worse by this alternative perspective on intolerance.
This topic may also prove more useful than others as I am prepared (as blog author) to try to answer any responses as they come in. I do have a real life outside of the digital world though so there may be a day or two delay at times - but I certainly won't be posting in, say general chat, then neglect my own blog if there are any questions here which should be addressed first.

Humour is always a nice alternative to rantings and ravings, Lol.
I know what you mean about that 'other megacomplex of text' as well, would probably have been interesting if the author had returned to support the accusations but I lose interest in blogs which appear to be neglected by their author.

Lol! Thats the spirit! We can overcome these obstacles if we campaign hard enough.
...I do hope you have some examples to quote though, it's rather lame to make accusations and then fail to support them in any way. Curse the intolerance towards lactose, lets make a stand for our rights comrade!

A majority of the worlds population is lactose intolerant so if you want to change that you have a long way to go.

It's lucky that the comments were not intended to be serious then.

(I'm mostly a soya milk guy myself, or I occasionally buy cows milk from a local farm. (as well as other dairy products, vegetables, meat and eggs)
It's not that I'm lactose intolerant, I'm just fortunate to be able to see the welfare and conditions of the cows who are forced to supply it to me.)

It seems to me that these so-called posters are in fact agents of Satan. This is troubling because, as an atheist, I don't believe in Satan.
However the logic is unassailable. Anything bad is caused by Satan. Making-up stories about a memer is bad. Ergo Satan exists. I am forced to renounce the false-doctrine of atheism and accept the new revealed truth of Frihost Satanism.
I see no good evidence, yet, for the existence of a divinity, so I must assume that Satan is, in fact, the only divinity and since I am now religious, evidence to the contrary is superfluous.

All Hail Frihost Satan...

Wow i love how you are targeting a specific frihost user and getting away with it

What arguments? This is another type of thing entirely, called humour.

Define Satan

Satan (Hebrew: הַשָׂטָן ha-Satan), "the opposer", is the title of various entities, both human and divine, who challenge the faith of humans in the Hebrew Bible

How? Or does this mean you are forced to read? ism? Is this frighthostism?

I do write about atheism because I believe atheism origins come from satan the original antichrist (that means in opposition). I believe in God, in angels and that there is an angel that is named thus. Regardless of what you believe to be true, who can say there is no bible, that there are words written in the bible, that people do talk about what is in the bible, and some even become evangelistic about it which pretty much makes them religious minded even if they call themselves atheists.

Who do you think I am targetting? I'm interested because I didn't think I was targetting any specific user.....

Funny reply with the Frihost Satan thing Bikerman, just a pity it will go way over the heads of some folk.
Personally, I've started believing in Devon Pixies as a way of escaping the clutches of the 'evangelical religion of atheism'. It's the reason for my absence over the last few days, I've been talking to the gods of the pixies in a healing tent at an ancient stone circle on Dartmoor all weekend. They didn't answer me but hey, they're no more unreliable than anyone elses god in my experience.
Although it's been about 200 hundred years since people generally believed they existed here, I've decided to revive this old faith because it even pre-dates the arrival of Christianity in Britain, and as it's been believed by so many people for so long, it must be true, right?.
Pixies are pesky but cool, it's all down to the individual pixie if he/she/it wishes to help or hinder you in life. I make sure I make a little chant before leaving the house now, in the hope that these invisible entities help me out in some way.
The really cool part about pixie belief though is that they never actually manifest themselves in any way that would convince anyone of their existence... hmm... just realised that isn't a unique feature at all, it's the same in organised religion and/or other spirituality Rolling Eyes

Yep, I agree, but threads can also be unintentionally funny at times, like the ridiculous claim of 'religious intolerance' here on Frihost.
I have enjoyed a few chuckles at the silly claims and sidetracking going on there, where the topic is no longer an attempt to prove 'intolerance', and more now a whine about moderating standards etc. Many requests have been made for some evidence/specific examples of this intolerance but the OP won't or can't provide it.
Even funnier is that we're back to the same old cries for automatic respect for a religious belief, regardless of the details of the belief, but the simple fact that it is religious faith should be enough for it to deserve 'respect'.
Absolutely ridiculous if you were to ask me, no religious belief deserves any more respect than my equally ridiculous example of Devon Pixies - yes people totally believed in them here, back in the day.

Classic example of silly and childish insults aimed at the poor victimised atheists, I'm just glad I now follow the path of the pixie these days. It seems more acceptable to some theists for an individual to have any opposing alternative blind faith than [horror!] no faith at all! Shocked
