Why The New Atheists Are Mad

“I’ll tell you what you did with Atheists for about 1500 years.  You outlawed them from universities or any teaching careers, besmirched their reputations, banned or burned their books or their writings of any kind, humiliated them, seized their properties, arrested them for blasphemy.  You dehumanized them with beatings and exquisite torture, gouged out their eyes, slit their tongues, stretched, crushed or broke their limbs, tore off their breasts if they were women, crushed their scrotums if they were men, imprisoned them, stabbed them, disemboweled them, hung them, burnt them  alive.  And you have nerve enough to complain to me that I laugh at you.”  Dr. Madalyn M. O’Hair   My emphasis

In case you haven’t guessed Ms. O’Hare is talking to Christians.  People who don’t buy into the Christian mythical construct have been, and are now, treated like dirt or worse.

I think now is a good time to turn the tables on the religious folk.  They still tend to treat us badly and many many of them threaten (and sometimes follow through) violence.  Revenge would be sweet. 🙂

  1. hmmmmm…well i’m a pantheist but i guess i belong to your corner but still, i say let’s not hold any grudges. we are free thinkers. we are basically more accepting and more accommodating than close-minded religious folk so i think we should know better. let’s not sink to their level. that’s just my opinion though, all because i want peace. besides, we are the future, that’s for sure. it’s only a matter of time. thanks for posting!

    Gotta go with John, hate consumes the haters and their misery would love the company. The world is moving past that crap. Demand an end to the laws they’ve created, and represent with the joy they’ve denied themselves.

    Hello johnathanielfernando, thanks for your reply.

    A pantheist, isn’t that someone who thinks that the universe is god, and/or vice versa? In other words not a personal God who you can pray to and who looks out for you and your friends and relatives and anyone who believes in him.

    Well the bulk of Christianity believes in the personal God, and throughout the last 2000 years have used this religion and the Bible as an excuse to murder, rape, pillage, disfigure, steal, plunder and generally f*ck over the common man. The Catholic Church still does it to this day.

    So what should I do? Just turn the other cheek and let them keep it up? I, for one, am not accepting and accommodating of those trying to run over me and try to take away my rights. Are you?

    There are hundreds, if not thousands of fundamentalist Christians and groups of Christians who are now running the Republican Party and are plotting to give up our constitution to biblical law.
    I don’t think I will turn the other cheek for that…will you?

    • yes, you are correct. i my god is the universe but not exactly a personal god. i’m not saying that we let them get away with it, i’m just saying that we should figure something out, something better, something more effective yet peaceful. just look around you, we are increasing in number, and we’re not even actively trying to preach and we aren’t as structured as they are. i’m just against violence that’s all, and as a pantheist, i believe that everyone is important, even the ones on the other side.

    Hello drelectro, thanks for writing.

    Just look up to my answer to johnnathanielfernando above…it pretty much answers you too. I refuse to let Christians get away with the crap that they have been doing anymore.
