I thank you for your comment, despite the fact that I strongly disagree with it.
When people are knocking on my door to ‘spread the word of Jesus’ and pushing politicians to legislate their faith… we have a right, and some might say duty, to call out these religions and demand they pony up some evidence to back up their claims before they try to ram it down anyone’s throat.The religious need to be called out because they are not calling their faith a belief, they’re trying to say it’s historical fact, which there is no evidence to support.
Just to give you a idea of how fucked up things are. The penalty for apostasy (leaving Islam) is death. There are Christians who want their kids to be exempt from the anti-bullying laws so that they can bully people who don’t agree with their faith. People in Iraq (such as Atheists and even Christians) who refuse to convert to Islam in Iraq are being shot and buried in mass graves.
What religion is doing to this world is something that should be protested. I’m not going to sit on my hands and neither should you. We should raise our voices to these injustices, which are clearly a violation of human rights. I do more than just rant online. I sign and circulate petitions, attend rallies and participate in debates to voice my opposition to the the terrible things that are caused by all religions.
One reason why I’ll never stop debating or calling out religion on their bullshit is because I made a promise to someone I greatly respect. That promise was to never let the thoughts of others shame me into backing off. Never be afraid of the anger your thoughts will produce. I was also told to seek out the fight and never be a spectator to injustice. I like to think I’ve done just that and will continue to do so until my final breath.
Thank you for your comment and for contributing to the conversation.
