Anti Theists and Atheist need to have thick skin!
It has really come to my attention that to be an anti theist or even a passive atheist you need pretty thick skin because you are going to see, read & hear some horrendous stuff! The stuff we hear is not what you would like to think of yourself, you know like we are going to hell and we are baby murderers!
The thing that really gets me is that if you are ever questioning or debating a fundamentalist christian/ muslim about the things they say or about the things in their bible they get annoyed very easily and start to dodge answering questions (even though they love it whenever we heathens cannot give quick and precise answers), and if you are really lucky and have one of the truly nasty points of the bible in your arguments then the fundamentalist will start to cry foul and claim that you are a nasty atheist and that you are just picking on them! Which is very hard to do considering all the laws around to protect the religious are not really there for the atheist, hell try to run for president of the USA and see how far you get! To me there seems to be a gap where one side the religious get a free pass to say and do anything and the other is the atheist who has to make sure not too offend the precious religious believer at all costs, where agnostic people run to the aide of the religious bigot over the free thinker!
It boggles my mind to see these people who basically do not believe in fairy tales but don’t come right out and say it like an atheist or the harder anti theist does, pandering to these bigots who see them as just as big a sinner as the atheist is. Let’s get one thing clear I am talking about the religious people who oppose contraception, abortion, LBGT equality, they burn books of authors they don’t agree with and willfully teach dogma in a science class, these are the dangerous people there are good religious people out there like Howard Bess a minister from Alaska who has tried to counter Sarah Palin and her strange views, there are countless other good men and women of faith who tirelessly give their time to help others without preaching. To those people I would like to make clear I am forever hopeful that you can come to your senses and for want of a better term see the light of science and rationalism.
But for you kiddie touching, gay bashing, abortion doctor killing and women’s rights opposing religious fundamentalists be on notice you do not have a right not to be offended I get offended by signs on your churches telling of hell and damnation.
