Apparently atheists are crotchety old goats in bathrobes, holding cups of (oh no!) coffee. As the (please say you're fucking kidding me) Spiritual Safety Tip poster says, you should avoid talking to these "poor lost souls." Hey, i have a better idea! LET'S BURN THEM AT THE STAKE!
Nah, religion's not dangerous. It doesn't promote hatred or fear. There are no hypocrisies involved in practicing religion. Religious folk are tolerant of both other religions AND those who choose NOT to subscribe, right? All the time and money spent on making stupid shit like the poster below is perfectly justified, right? It's for the protection of our children, should those goat-like old atheists lash out at them!
Last time i checked, "freedom of religion" also meant freedom FROM religion if one so chooses. Freedom from a god of any sort, as a matter of fact. But fear is a powerful weapon and as long as religious leaders are serving up heaps of it to the masses, we will continue to see idiocies like this poster and millions of dollars will be spent by various religious organizations to ensure people remain fearful of those who are "different."
Sounds very loving and kind, doesn't it? (Yes, i'm dripping with sarcasm; it's part of the healing process. Someday i may repost this, but say it nicely and more straight-forward. Until then, sarcasm is what's for dinner!)
