  • stupid ass quote. obviously some clueless atheist who has no idea what religion is about lol.

    like look at this:
    We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.
    H. L. Mencken

    i swear, he reminds me of a GaG troll lmao.

    • You seem a bit defensive about your spaghetti god in the sky lol

    • u catch on quick! :)

    • By the way can you explain what is wrong with that quote you put down? Do you mean to tell me others should respect another's religion more and then worship it?

What Guys Said 1

  • I have never heard a nonreligious basis for morality that makes sense. The quote assumes there is an objective standard of morality, which is what religions also say. I fail to see any difference in belief.

    • You can argue that most anything is subjective.

    • I'm not doing that.
