Religious atheist Bigots

25 September 2012, 12:50

Respect for the rights of others, we say.  We beat those drums and preach those sermons about tolerance, but where then is the acceptance of people’s religious convictions?

Are you a religious atheist bigot?  Are you quick to preach tolerance and respect for the rights of all people, but then show absolutely zero tolerance for someone who adopts a particular faith?

As fervently as the atheist fundamentalists stand up and preach about respect for other people and their choices, they seem to have no respect for people who choose to believe in God.

Their hypocritical position on religion removes any fragment of credibility they had left.

They’re the first to judge, point fingers and ridicule, but when challenged they go on the defensive and demand that others don’t judge them.

Hypocrites!

Are you a religious atheist bigot?  Are you the first to throw stones at the world’s more traditional religions, but cling fast to your chosen faith despite overwhelming evidence proving that you’re wrong?

The atheists will defend their hypocrisy, telling you that they feel called by their atheist gods to go out and preach their own understanding of theories and what they term as ‘truth’.  That somehow, they feel obliged to perform this self-appointed duty.  Pathetic!

To deluded atheists I wish to say this:  You’re not as intelligent as you like to think you are.  You’re just fallible humans, like all the rest of us.  Your pseudo-intellectite demeanour is pathetically self-conceited and reeks of over-inflated arrogance that’s really based on nothing at all.  Why are you such hypocrites where on the one hand you preach tolerance and acceptance for all when it suites you, but on the other you show no tolerance for people following traditional religions of whichever persuasion?

Hypocrites!

To believers in whichever God/gods I wish to say this:  Don’t ever ditch your faith for the atheist religion.  You already have a faith, why trade that in on another faith?  It takes mountains of misplaced faith in order to believe in atheism.  Stick with your God and your faith in Him; you don’t need another faith, especially one as useless and pointless as the religion of atheism.

So atheists, the next time you go demanding respect and tolerance, just remember that that includes accepting other people’s chosen faith. 

Quit being a bunch of hypocrites and quit being a bunch of religious atheist bigots.
