Bother Someone Else

I don’t know if I can stand reading Salon anymore. Every fucking day they feature an apologist for faith and religion. But they do it in an insidious way; what they do is write long polemics against atheists or non-believers. Why do they get to do this? Because it’s easy and you don’t get in trouble for insulting us. I’m waiting for the stories that attack believers…the stories that attack a certain race of people…or an attack from a straight person on gay people. Oh, but you can’t do that. But atheists? Sure. Kick them around because it’s socially safe, an unprotected minority. It’s OK to be a fucking fundamentalist Christian, but it isn’t OK to be out, proud, and loud about our convictions as non-believers.

If a religion can’t stand up for itself-if your faith can’t handle criticism- pound sand. The foundation you are on is rickety and crumbling. We’re just pointing it out.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
