Love the stamp, it's amazing! You always do such nice work.
It just dawned on me that I bet some of those religious fucks will see this stamp and not even realize that the description fits them. The most self-righteous religious types think they're going "god's work", they don't think they're shoving their horseshit down people's throats or being judging, they just think they're doing what a good religious person does. Or they even hide behind the "it's not a religion, it's a relationship" bullshit, as if that excuses their throwing it in people's faces. It would be humorous if they weren't so annoying and destructive.
It wasn't the religious who pushed for students to get punished for reading Bibles in class or wearing religious clothing, or having their valedictorian speech cut off because they thank God in it, or for laws requiring them to attend public schools in spite of the wish of their religious parents to home school them.
It doesn't take religious belief to make a person holier than thou and self-righteous. All it takes is a lack of respect for the rights of others, and atheists have done that just as often as the religious.
Ok well your reply to my comment made no sense as my original comment mentioned religious people doing "god's work" and thinking they're excused by their "relationship" with god, so obviously that can't apply to me.
I don't know why you're lumping me with these accusations, atheists aren't a social club, and I certainly have had nothing to do with "punishing" students for reading the bible (I even tend to encourage reading the bible because I find its atrocities do more to discredit Christianity than I ever can). And you don't want to start comparing actions of atheists versus the religious, especially when it comes to forcing their bullshit into places it doesn't belong like schools and government.
You're right in that self righteousness is not limited to the religious, hence why those adjectives describe "religious fucks" in the stamp

Don't think of it as me lumping you in, just giving you fair warning; don't become what you claim to hate, which is what is infecting quite a few prominent atheists right now from what I see. They claim to be in favor of freedom and get up in arms when the church meddles in the state, but when the shoe is on the other foot (which is no less wrong and no less a violation of separation of church and state) they're rather silent or vocally supportive.
Also, reading the Bible in class and wearing the cross or clothing with religious quotations are not examples of the state sponsoring religion, which is what the separation of church and state is meant to do. They are examples of freedom of speech and freedom of opinion.
You have to give concrete examples with sources, because I don't see much evidence to believe that in the US there is a lot of atheists going around trampling on the rights of people. I see a lot of evidence to the contrary, of atheists in the US being a minority group against a large, wealthy, influential religious majority with a long dark history of aggressive oppression. I have not heard of anyone getting in trouble for reading the bible, perhaps teaching the bible or biblical ideas instead of science but that's a big difference. And sorry, but religion does not have the freedom to do whatever it wants, once it starts to encroach into other people's lives and once it starts fucking with government and public institutions then it needs to be put in check.

I can provide more if necessary.
"And sorry, but religion does not have the freedom to do whatever it wants, once it starts to encroach into other people's lives and once it starts fucking with government and public institutions then it needs to be put in check."
Where, pray tell, did I say it did? In case you didn't get the message, I'm defending free speech and free expression, not religion itself. Reading the bible and wearing religious quotes is not forcing religion on anyone, it's simply expressing one's views.
Thank you! I'm glad you like it I am not particularly fond of the, "It's not religion, it's a relationship," thing, either. It's like if I were to build churches dedicated to worshiping my husband, knocking door to door asking if they know my hubbs and then explaining all the reasons why I think that they should marry him, and then going online so I could comment on all the non-husband-lovers' stuff saying that MY HUSBAND is LORD and that if you don't marry my husband, you're going to burn eternally in hell.
lol, well at least people can see your husband, expecting that of a make believe imaginary husband is what I find so absurd Though I don't know if I would complain if people went around building churches to worship me
