  •  From what I've gathered (6+ / 0-)

    being around some fundamental and even not so fundamental, that if you sin you can just be - ta da - forgiven.

    Some of the most devout "religious" people I know have committed not only "sin" but crimes.  

    One lady at work announced to several of us:  She's committed adultery several times while married ( 4 marriages herself but is anti gay marriage), she stole money from her last employer - embezzlement.  She took money from her own church, but... this is the jawbreaker -

    She always talks about how she swindled an old lady during a private car sale.  

    But she's "forgiven" each fucking time.

    Her religion is a get out of jail free card to her.  

    But me - an atheist - I'm the "sinner" in her eyes.
