"Pastor Niem?ller, a leading figure during the 1930s in Nazi Germany. After the war, he said:

First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I said nothing. Then they came for the Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat, so I did nothing. Then they came for the trade unionists, but I was not a trade unionist. And then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did little. Then when they came for me, there was no one left to stand up for me.

Personally, I find all this pedantic discourse pretentious.?
Atheist is something I am. Religion is something diests do. I don?t feel?
compelled to justify it, defend it, or reference philosophers, writers and?
?Nobel scientists to give it credence and validation. Nor do I feel the?
need to wave banners, march in the street, go on a hunger strike before City?
Hall or engage in any other demonstrative expression of my reality, including?
mock prayers, etc. ?-- as some religious zealots, and evangelists for any?
cause, including that of anti-theism ? feel driven to do.?

??

I?m simply an atheist. BFD. ?It would be nice to find?
others in the Atlanta area who aren?t on some kind of crusade, but apparently?
I?m dreamin
