If you believe in fairies, kiss my rosy pink arse is more like it. Now are you going to shut your gob or not?”

    George Carlin
    “Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

    But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!”
    George Carlin

    Richard Dawkins
    “A child is not a Christian child, not a Muslim child, but a child of Christian parents or a child of Muslim parents. This latter nomenclature, by the way, would be an excellent piece of consciousness-raising for the children themselves. A child who is told she is a 'child of Muslim parents' will immediately realize that religion is something for her to choose -or reject- when she becomes old enough to do so.”
    Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

    Katie Kacvinsky
    “I think everyone’s caught up in these narrow-minded worlds and they think their world exists in the center of the universe. Relationships only happen when it’s convenient. You have to walk on eggshells for people because that’s about how strong they are these days. And you can’t confront people, because if you do, that brittle shell of confidence will crack. So we all become passive cowards that carry a fake smile wherever we go because God forbid you let your guard down long enough for people to see your life isn’t perfect. That you have a few flaws. Because who wants to see that? My theory is everybody sucks. So, my conclusion is I don’t need anybody.”
    Katie Kacvinsky, First Comes Love

    Madalyn Murray O'Hair
    “An atheist believes that a hospital
    should be built instead of a church.
    An atheist believes that deed must
    be done instead of prayer said.
    An atheist strives for involvement in life
    and not escape into death.
    He wants disease conquered,
    poverty vanished, war eliminated.”
    Madalyn Murray O'Hair
