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 shirts.....it 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!
