I have noticed some incredibly sloppy and prejudiced thought on this site lately. Being Atheist or skeptical does not give you liscense to be sloppy or prejudicial. If you are going to make public pronouncements of superiority at least put some thought into the arguments.
There is a difference between being an Atheist and a Lazy Non-believer.
Telling a child that he/she was born wrong and broken because of sin is abusive behaviour . High ranking members of lots of religions have been found guilty of sexual crimes against children and it is well documented. Pointing these things out is not sloppy as the research has allready been done and is generally accepted as fact . Saying athiest children are less likely to be affected by these things is just common sense . If you are offended that someone is calling out your religion then an agnostic/athiest site really isnt the place for you is it ?
Sadly some people are just idiots no matter what they believe (or not believe) When I made my departure from the Church it was in part because of the people I was tired of dealing with. I found most Christians to be not very Christian. Crappy attitudes and flimsy ideals. People I didn't want to be associated with. I next delved into the Wiccan/Pagan belief system and sadly those people were no better than the Christians I was tired of dealing with. People are people....
Now I consider myself a Solitary Spiritualist. I no longer call myself by and defined title. I like what Buddhism has to say.. I also like what Jesus had to say. (just not the rest of what man added to their silly book.) I also like Bill & Ted.. "Be excellent to each other."
I've been on a bit of a roll lately calling people out rather than the usual eye roll and carry on.
I think sometimes you have to acknowledge when people say ridiculous things instead of standing by watching them get virtual pats on the head without criticism.
All for the greater good of humanity of course ?
So, a message like this may be interpreted in several ways, and reminds me of the teacher who scolds the entire class for the behavior of a few. In the absence of specifics, all are inclined to dismiss the admonishment, including those to whom the reproach was made. The bottom line here is this: please endeavor to practice what you preach. Sloppy is as sloppy does.
