When Atheism Turns Ugly

Posted September 21st, 2011 by DaveD

Fanatical atheism is no worse and no better than fanatical religion, though it may be more bitterly ironic. There is something pretty odd, dare I say hypocritical, about a bunch of people who call themselves “freethinkers” and “humanists” not only verbally abusing people of faith, but actually tearing up verses from the Bible as an act of protest, as they did on a pier in Huntington Beach, California Saturday morning. It doesn’t sound terribly humane to me, and I am quite sure that destroying texts, however much one may object to them, is the opposite of free thought.

I'm agnostic, thank gawd

none of the endeavor of religion/non-religion matters to me as I figure people are trying to find their own path to integrity & character. any person has the inherent right to decide existence for himself, however, he does not have the the right to decide it for others AND THEN impose it through gov't. if the religious say they're about personal freedom (which is a lie since it goes against their religious ideology by nature), then it is the freedom of another to decide existence, itself. is there any worse infringement of freedom than that of the individual conscious mind.

That's right folks, tearing up /photocopied/ pages of some of the nastier passages in the bible. Oh the humanity! Please wake me up when the story matches the headline.
