Re: [humanism-174] Uncle Tom Atheists

Some very good points are raised. I keep noticing how many folks, including some freethinkers claim that Dawkins and other outspoken atheists are arrogant. I think theists who insist that they are certain some sort of supreme being exist, but that they know how this "god" thinks, how "he" wants his will to be manisfested on earth, and most of them believe that "god's word" is not only a basis for legislating morality here on earth, but that nonbelievers and sinners will suffer an eternal torment in hell. THAT is arrogance personified. I noticed this a few days ago when i was reading that story that Ginger posted about that boardgame that lampoons various deities. The man who created the game claimed that atheists "are fanatics, just as much as fanatical as religous fundamentalists". What utter nonsense!

Uncle Tom Atheists Exchange Liberty for Crumbs of Privilege
Are you truly committed to equality, liberty, and liberation for all atheists or are you more of an "Uncle Tom" atheist? Would you turn your back on working for real equality in exchange for a few scraps from the tables of religious theists so you can pretend you're being treated as an equal? Would you support increased privileges for Christians in the hope that a few of those privileges might drip down to benefit you personally? You might, and without even realizing it.
So, You Might be an Uncle Tom Atheist if...
