As an atheist, I am angry that we live in a society in which the plain truth cannot be spoken without offending 90% of the population.
Good morning all I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Sam is wrong 25 % is speaking out now as we must to shame violent religionists out of faux protections. ...fundamentalists that abuse women and their own gay children KKK xian racist terrorism zionists terrorizing defenseless Palestinians people hiding behind faith to sexually mutilate baby boys and muslim girls HINDU and other religious violence must all be repudiated equal to cannibals and Nazis
I don't think it is 90% of the population. It seems like 90% because they are loud and whiny. I know the numbers of atheist/agnostic in the US is growing. Statistics tell us that AND back in the day when I was actively involved with the church one of our concerns was bringing the young people back to church.Those young people are moving away from the church in greater numbers now. Things are changing, but not fast enough for some, and too fast for others.
Perhaps the plain truth is so buried in jargon, newspeak, doublespeak etc etc etc and plain language is the enemy of the corrupt. Winston Churchill once accused someone of being guilty of a "terminological inexactitude." A long winded way of calling someone a liar.Then some might retort you should be diplomatic. Looking at the original meaning of that word it is clear that is was somebody who went abroad to "lie" in wait for his country.
