"and the best part is he is atheist! omg my hero!"

well arent you precious. Tell me atheist, have you ever made any scientific discoveries in your life or did you just go through school science and come to the conclusion that god cant exist.

Because unless you yourself have proved something scientific than you have no more credibility than someone who has read the bible and made a decision based off of that.

most atheists = read science text book = THERE IS NO GOD
most religious people = read (insert important religious scripture here) = MY GOD EXISTS

just saying, half you people on here think your argument is more credible even though you have done nothing to prove your credibility.

People aren't allowed to have a ******* opinion? No idea about the origin of life is even close to being proven. It's human instinct to idolize people that share the ideas you do.

People are free to be atheist regardless of whether they have any scientific proof. Go away idiot

Albeit I'm an Atheist, i agree with this statement a hundred percent. I just choose to believe there isn't a all knowing all powerful being, call me ignorant, call me stupid. But it's just what i choose to believe. just like, implying here, if you are religious you choose to have your faith. and i respect that as well.

No one can prove there is no "god". But are you willing to say that something that was said thousands of years ago and has no solid, hard proof, and that contradicts itself all the time, is actually reasonable and worth putting your entire soul and faith into?

This is why I'm agnostic.

But, your post has nothing to do with why OP thinks him being atheist is awesome.

It's because he is atheist, and related to the most hateful, radical Christians/Baptist/Whatevers to ever exist.

By your logic. for you to be religious, you have to have helped write the bible.

Very cute, however I believe he was saying "and the best part" in relation to the family he came from. Considering the entire family was indoctrinated in the highest degree to believe in religion (and the extraordinary amount of intolerance his family attached to it) and yet he came out a skeptic and a tolerance activist.

To the rest of your comment:

"Tell me atheist, have you ever made any scientific discoveries in your life or did you just go through school science and come to the conclusion that god cant exist. "

You don't have to make a scientific discovery, and you don't need any profound understanding of science to refute the existence of god. If the side making the claim cannot produce the evidence, then we do not believe the claim. It's a very simple process humans follow for everything because we aren't omniscient.

"Because unless you yourself have proved something scientific than you have no more credibility than someone who has read the bible and made a decision based off of that.
"

He doesn't need credibility when refuting a claim, someone who reads the bible and says it proves god exists when it doesn't is wrong. You don't need a mathematician in the classroom for one 1st grader to tell another 2+2 doesn't equal 3.

"most atheists = read science text book = THERE IS NO GOD
most religious people = read (insert important religious scripture here) = MY GOD EXISTS "

No it's more like

Religious person= Read holy scripture= My god exists.
Most atheists= That's wrong.= Your claim of god is wrong.

I read the "lesbian gay bisexual and transgender activist" part without the "activist", and wondered how the hell he managed to be all of that at once. I'm an idiot

your favorite part about him is that he's atheist? Not that he's a lesbian gay bisexual and transgender activist? Well now we know OP is just as narrow-minded as WBC, since he's judging someone based on their religious beliefs.

That doesn't make him nice, **** nuts. George Washington fought for oppressed people, but he wasn't nice. He wasn't nice at all. As a matter of fact, he was a ******* dick.

What bothers me is that you say your favourite part is that he's an atheist like this makes him a good person. I, frankly, could probably not give a **** less on someone's religion as it does not change, much, who they are nor if they're a good person or not.

They are horrible, horrible people. Their religion doesn't change that, nor does it make them any better, they just are the scum of humanity in the name of God.

They're "douches", my friend because they are. They do it in the name of God but their religion is irrelevant to the fact that they are "douches". It's simply what they are.

I understand that, friend. I'm saying that whether they're religious or not what they do makes them assholes. It wouldn't matter what religion they were because they would remain assholes. I understand that they do it because they're religious but what I'm saying is that what religion someone belongs to isn't a factor in if they're a good or bad person. They are assholes because of what they do, and not because they are Christian.

They're merely following the rules of the old testament. This guy would be an asshole if he stayed in the family, in fact, he was an asshole, until he woke up and left his old beliefs behind.

edgy. I wouldn't give a **** if he was Jewish or ******* into Voodoo, he spoke out against the evils of the WBC and that makes him a pretty cool guy who doesn't afraid of anything.

Sexist is discriminating against someone because of their sex, not their sexuality.
I believe the term you're looking for is heterophobia.

I just like to nit-pick so I wanted to point out that you called him brilliant but nothing in your description was geared toward intellect. It was all about character and morality.   
A good man, seems that way. Brilliant? need more info than given.   
   
P.S. You don't have to be atheist to hate Westboro. You say it like it defines him as a good man. Seen just as many asshole atheist as I have Christians, more of them on FJ.

and if the father who beat him had been a homosexual atheist, this man would likely be a religious churchgoer. estranged children often defy their parents in this manner, what of it?

Please don't blame religion in general for the mistakes of one church, I'm not saying you are doing this, I just want to state this because of previous FJ experiences. This is not atheists vs religious people, this is against this church in particular
