Godless liberals

No, I'm not saying that all (or even most) liberals are atheist or agnostic. That would be untrue, and disingenuous of me to assert such. Granted, their failed policies can be argued as such, but most of us who know any liberals can probably attest that they do believe in God.

Well, I had the misfortune of being accosted by a foreigner who not only is a socialist, but also ridiculed my belief in God. I won't give this person any more notoriety, but it did bring to mind an observation on my part:

Have you ever known an atheist who loved life?

Think about it. Most times, whether you know an atheist or you see them on TV (such as an ACLU attorney or granola-eating, green-tea-sipping, burlap-wearing enviro-weenie), don't they just seem like the most miserable people in the world?

Rarely do you meet one who simply accepts that you believe in God and he/she does not. I have known but two such people. One is a dear friend of mine on the Left Coast, who is not of faith but accepts that I am and does not marginalize me for it. Another is a girl I dated when I first got to FSU, and while she is not of faith, she also never attempted to make me feel foolish for having faith in God.

Aside from those two, nearly every atheist/agnostic I've ever had the misfortune of meeting has been such a horribly unhappy wretch. Those people are the ones who are hostile to us for having the temerity to believe in God.

I wonder why.

Actually, I know why...I just felt like closing on a rhetorical note! :) Anyway, God bless everyone!!! LOL
