To Michael, you entitled to your opinion and atheists are entitled to wear T-shirts of any freedom of expression they like. A T-shirt hardly "persecutes" people or physically hurt and destroy people.
Religion doesn't get a free pass from criticism and if we never spoke up and questioned absurdity then we'd still be in the dark ages. My thoughts and Rich was posting a link for people interested, not a command for atheists to wear t-shirts, everyone's choice, and everyone takes a different approach to being an atheist.
Again thanks for link Rich.

Hi!  Please read my comment carefully....... it was a caution!   I and we all should welcome the "Classic Liberalism" approach to free speech but we should also caution against the hate some show for those that think differently.  I did not say a t-shirt persecutes anyone............... but be aware some so called Atheist groups clam a cross does that and more to them.  It is merely a grave marker/symbol of a death to me and millions.

If tolerance doesn't go both ways there is no tolerance!  Respect for all is a lofty goal!

I do like some of the wasn't a comment on them but an effort to encourage "critical" thinking!

However some of the quotes of Christopher Hitchens (one of the shirts) do harbor tones of hate. "My own view is that this planet is used as a penal colony, lunatic asylum and dumping ground by a superior civilisation, to get rid of the undesirable and unfit."   God Is Not Great

You be the judge!
