I can back Beebub up here with my own experience.

I was denied a place in my secondary school in the eleventh hour after being on their list for years. This left my very hard working mother in an awful state. She somehow managed to talk them round to taking me and to get them to confirm my younger brother and sister too.

So my sister and I attended the school, got good grades and gave them no trouble whatsoever. The year before my brother was due to start they suddenly denied him entry too. Again my mother had to plead with them to give a place, which they eventually did.

The problem was we didn't hold the same religion as the school, which is Methodist, simple as that. They were abiding by the law despite putting us through such distress.

Although I am grateful for the education I received at the school (for the most part), I still hold a grudge towards their administrators for what they put my mother through.

Comment 6 by Scoundrel :

so Adultury is worse than murder?

Could you kindly elaborate on your question?

I'm not sure who this is aimed at, I can't see why you are asking it and I'm very interested to see how you would answer it?

Comment 3 by sbooder :

This will only provide the religious with presumed evidence that atheists are immoral and steal other people’s partners?

That was my initial thought too, based on the trailer.

I noticed they quoted page numbers a few times - it would be nice to know if they were indeed quoting the correct page numbers or if this was another of their tactics to make them sound somewhat intelligent?!

I think the 1million hits is definitely achievable. I wonder how many people are registered to this site and how many check it regularly.
