I've been told by friends that I'm the most militant atheist they know. All the while I'm thinking, "I'm not shit, you should see some of the people on Agnostic.com!"

I think we all have our moments. Some carry that badge of honor and some are more laid back about it. Main stream society loves to label us as one extreme or the other.

I don't preach atheism at random strangers. However, once the outwardly religious start preaching at me they're fair game .

Yup, I like taking the bus but occasionally you get the nut job trying to convert you during the ride. So rude, no manners!

@JazznBlues When I preach back at them, the typical reaction is for them to hang their head in shame. Three minutes later, they're doing it to another guy.

I think I'm the most pacifist atheist, agnostic really. I got a lot from religion and I appreciate what religion was trying to achieve. So I've moved on without the bitterness a lot of people (justifiably) feel.

I think the self-righteous type still get on my nerves but that's not entirely limited to the religious. Especially nowadays with the attitude of extreme lefties dictating what's true like old-time Puritans.

Brilliant.

Yeah - me too: but the problem with the word militant is it’s the same word as that rightly used to describe those who push their beliefs with violence and weaponry.

My tolerance for religious dumbshit beliefs is dying a not so slow death. My version of militant though is more of a deadpan confident truth or possibly mockery with a shit eating grin. No actual violence at all...

@JazznBlues yeah - likewise

That's no shite!

I resemble that remark!

LOL

Love your meme! Totally stealing it!

Adding it to my collection as well!

I tend to mock the overly religious. Car not working? You tried praying right? You tithe right? Gee I don't know, I'm stumped.

I don't claim "militancy", tho I am inherently direct & can be confrontational, I strive for a more "Street Epistemology" approach...it's a work in progress. I am a "Firebrand Atheist" & I am not at all ashamed of my stance or outlook. I wear atheist/science t-shirts often, hoping to spark discussion. I have an "Atheist Atom" tat on my right forearm. I speak with the JW's or Mormons that come to my door. I'm proud & can be loud when needed. I'm "out", as far as my atheism goes, & I can support the many reasons why I am!

One more...

Member of American Atheists & FFRF, also subscribe to "Free Inquiry".

I adore the atheist atom. I used to have a sticker in my car

It's a compliment. Kudos to you!

Just so long as you're not recruiting for church bombings we're cool.

Silverman said we should come out as an Atheist, not as anon, or non-theist, or agnostic. If people liked us before they'll like us after we come out. I've found that to be mostly true. Those that didn't I probably didn't want as friends anyway.

We do have a range of advocates here.

Bet that shocked him.

Had the opportunity to meet David Silverman, the ex-president of American Atheists before he was kicked out. He was proud of his militancy and referred to himself as a "dick". I liked him.

Having once been called a "Nimrod" by my brother's pastor, I took it as the ultimate compliment.

THHA Level 7 Feb 9, 2019

"Nimrod" is a biblical term meaning "mighty hunter."

You should have shot him so he could be right.

It no longer amuses me how little Christians know what's in the bible.

I don't see being a "militant atheist" as a bad thing.
The older I get, the more I see it as being completely necessary.
