oh the fun!

So it just goes back and forth between me and the atheist's. It seems that they like visiting my page as much as I like visiting theirs! Seriously though, I was so mad when this all started but I'm not mad anymore. I just don't understand why they can't put their point of view out there without being so insulting and condescending.

So David, you're Anonymous huh? LULZ

I stopped reading here: "If you had clicked the box that said 7*7 then you would have read that 7*7 means saying 7 prayers for your family 7 days a week. It's kind of a play off of 24/7. Not that hard to figure out."

My 7*7 comment was a play on the Biblical significance of the number 7. Not that hard to figure out... assuming you've actually read the Bible. I'm surprised I even made it that far through the blog.

Although I outed (hehe) David as Mr. Anonymous, it doesn't mean I think he is the only person who posted under anonymous. And this is actually a compliment of sorts.....I may be wrong but I believe that he is the 1st anonymous to post comments on my blog. Those 1st long rants actually had some small signs of intelligence in them and he is the only person in your group that actually comes across as being intelligent.

And the lulz come right back to you, I didn't start this drama.

I doubt it if you stopped reading at this point. I think we have already established that you have a problem recognizing the truth. Especially since once you get to that point in the post, your picture is right there. If I saw my pic, I would keep reading.

And nope that flew right over my head. I have read parts of the bible but not the entire thing and I do not and have never claimed to be an expert on the bible. I am still learning. Simple as that, so you got me there.

And honestly, I think that I might be an atheist too if the things that have happened to you had happened to me. Not trying to be mean, you know what I am talking about and I will keep that to myself. Or have you always been an atheist? I am being completely serious and honest in asking.

I will share something with you. When I was 10 my father died and I was so mad at God for it. I didn't know anything about God except that he existed. Then for the next nine years I hated God. I never prayed to him, I would say a prayer, more like talk, to my dad. So while I believed that God existed, I didn't acknowledge him for those years.

Do you even have any friends who believe in God? I'm sure everyone who knows you knows that you are an atheist. It seems you are involved in a lot of activities around it. But do you have friends who don't believe the same things as you? Do you attack them for their beliefs or let them be?

My friends and I don't all have the same common beliefs but I keep my opinions to myself. Or at least communicate in a rational manner to them. Not outright attack them for not believing in the same things.

Mrs. Bagby seems to have an awful lot of time on her hands. Someone with (was it 4?) kids to home school should be spending her time putting together lesson plans not responding to posts by strangers. If she wants to keep her kids out of school and give them the "benefit" of her greater knowledge than trained proffesionals, I say, let her have it. More of teacher's time for my kids, if I have any. Social Darwinism at its finest.

If you are gonna start with your 2 cents, at least know what is going on. I have 3 children. And my lesson plans are done in advance. It seems to me that all of these atheists have an awful lot of time on their hands to visit my blog and talk about it for days.

Looks like Ol'Bagsby thinks I am awesome too :swoon:

Yeah, that's me on the last picture, and honestly, it's one of my
better pictures. HAHA!

Oh well, if she wants to put her life out there, and doesn't expect
opinions, then she really is delusional. I hope she reads that last
part as well.

I like how she calls me, as an atheist, intolerant. I suppose, a
christian would know intolerance when they see it. They have been
well versed in that kind of behavior for the better part of 1600 years
now.

I shrug my shoulders as I type this.

How could I not resist to put that picture when I found it? It was too perfect!

It's not that I don't expect opinions about it, but there is a difference in someone expressing their opinion and someone outright attacking my family. The comment that started this all was meant to be mean and insulting. So while I do expect people to have opinions, like I said, I will not sit back and just take it when they attack my family. And you wouldn't either if someone was stooping low enough to attack children. Well, you did stoop that low actually. Children have always been off limits in my book, but some people obviously feel better when insulting them.

I am more than willing to hear another persons point of view on religion. I always have. I especially like talking with people from other cultures about their religion. I am not close-minded.....but no one came to me at a rational level to express their views. They opened up with insulting my daughters. What kind of mother would I be to not defend them? They have a right to be on this earth just as much as everyone else. Nobody is perfect, absolutely nobody.

You are grouping me with all Christians as a whole. I didn't call you intolerant as an atheist. You, as a person, insulted children. It just shows your character. The only thing I find atheist have in common is a tremendous amount of anger towards those who don't believe the same things that you do.


So I welcome any of you to stop this and have a rational conversation about your beliefs. If you want to talk about me, come do it here and not back and forth on your mailing list. Because all you do there is high five each other seeing who can be the meanest. It's up to you.

Cortni, I have been reading these updates as they have come out, even though I have not commented on all of them.

For such a young believer, I see the power of God upholding you to see you through this thing. Many people would have either cratered or blown a gasket under such blatant attack!

I believe you have been the most rational, civil person in this whole verbal crusade against Christianity and a parent's right to raise and education their own children. Bravo...Stand firm, girl!

Greetings, I accidentally stumbled upon your site. I was going to contact you privately first but I saw no contact info. I'm very confused about this Shelly you're speaking of. You had a pic which is the identical Shelly that I've run into on the blogosphere. Does she claim to have kids? The one I know is like an evangelical atheist from Richmond who claims to have miscarried triplets as a direct result of a Catholic conspiracy putting baby's life above the mother, which makes no sense since if mother is at risk, unborn kids are at risk.

I thought I'd check before I draw the connections.

Again I would have done this privately but I found no contact information.

Thank you for your time, and have an inspirational day.
