I just read a funny article “How Moderate Should Atheists Be? How Should Atheists Be Less Extreme?”
Many religious theists would like atheists to be more “moderate” in their criticisms of religion, religious beliefs, and theism. They contend that atheists are too intolerant of religion and should show more respect to religious beliefs.
And, I have been told quite often — answer with the very first thing which came to mind, because it is normally the correct answer. So here goes my first thoughts to the answer of this question….
“How Moderate Should Atheists Be….lol” How about as moderate as your everyday normal religious crackpot person. You know the ones that knock and bang loudly on the door each Saturday morning with their Watch Tower in hand and big black Bible in the other.
Or maybe they should be as moderate as the normal everyday person standing on the corner screaming and yelling scriptures and condemning you and everyone else within their earshot to a everlasting eternal fiery Hell.
How about this though, Atheists getting a satellite and cable network station – instead of TBN it would be named ABN ‘Atheist Broadcast Network’.
And, they could have two week long marathons preaching No God and collecting No Money for your entry into Heaven.
(keep reading this wonderful article at How Moderate and Tolerate should an Atheist be?) I really enjoyed the comment from Austine Cline —
It seems to me that demands for atheists to be more “moderate” are ultimately demands for atheists to self-censor and not bring up uncomfortable arguments, facts, and ideas which conflict with religion’s long hold on people’s minds.
