Hands Off! (Redux)

Message from the IAmAnAtheist.com feedback form. I read your message threatening you with child molestation for corresponding to the teenage girl.

Post 1,000

To celebrate, I’d like to share an e-mail I received some time ago but have been saving because I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Atheists are stewpid. Here are things that atheists […]
