Well, neph, the difference is this:
Religious people fly planes into buildings and kill innocent people for being infidels; atheists don’t. Why the hell would any sane, intelligent person “shut up” about religion when it’s bringing so much suffering, pain, and horror upon humanity? It’s not that atheists are having a hard time swallowing their beliefs—they’re having a hard time being force-fed YOURS.
The same thing can be said about religious people trying to convert other religions. Are you having a hard time swallowing your fairy tales and just want everyone else to share yours? It’s a two way street.
I think back
to my days as a christian. god damn am i glad i realized how big a waste that shit was. Feeling inferior in this world and making me feel like shit for making mistakes that every human does. sorry im not perfect? such a bullshit way to make some one you love feel. Im so glad im not worshiping a terrorist. I live in north carolina where religion is such a big deal. And they have haunted these trails called Judgement woods, basically a trail that shows you the horrors of hell and scares you back to god. I believe that is called terrorism, using fear to accomplish your goals? yeah terrorism. I remember the days when i could not stand to be around a homosexual simply for the fact that they are gay and god told me it was wrong. being relieved of all my prejudices was one of the greatest things giving up god had taught me. When i was a christian i settled for all the answers of the world. now, im so hungry for knowledge i think about it all the time. All in all, atheism has shown me the world, and how beautiful it is. that it all happened by chance and not some design from a creator. I still believe humanity is a piece of shit though, but theres more hope for us in atheism than in the chains of religion.
