Why Do Atheists Bother You So Much?

I was on TweetDeck one day just looking at my friend/family stream and a friend retweeted something that @GodlessAtheist tweeted. It was something that he retweeted that someone else had said. So I checked out a few of his tweets to see what he tweets and he’s mostly retweeting nasty things that other people say about atheists along with a response.

Like right now I’m looking and I see this:

RT @aleepolat: Dear God, Well, this is awkward. Sincerely, dead atheist.http://lil.as/3VC <–at that point neither exist anymore #atheism

Update: The user aleepolat must have deleted his/her account because the link is no longer valid.  Hmm, I wonder why they deleted the account…

What he does is he responds at the end where it shows the arrow then he hash tags it.  And he isn’t nasty about it either.  He responds with a nice sentence like the one you see above.  People say that atheists are so evil and so mean, well this guy shows that they aren’t because his responses are nice.  He is to the point and he doesn’t lie unlike the people he retweets who lie about atheists.

Why does it make people so upset that there are people who don’t share the same exact religious views as them? I mean, there are people who don’t worship Jesus, they are called Muslims and Jews. And I know that upsets the christians to no end because I went to visit a church in San Diego a couple of years ago and they were talking about how they converted a muslim and a jew into christianity. And they were putting them and their religion down to their faces while bragging about the conversion.

Look, people are going to believe in something different, that is what makes us all unique and individual, because we don’t share the same belief system. We are all like snowflakes if you think about it. No two look alike with the exception of twins and even then they have different opinions and personalities because they are 2 different people.

I’ve only been following GodlessAtheist for a couple of weeks now and it seems that he retweets a lot of people who talk trash about atheists. I just don’t understand why atheists bothers people so much. Atheists have nothing to do with you so don’t let it interrupt your life.  Don’t give them so much thought that you have to tweet about them on twitter so much.

It’s like how people are so upset about gay people and they tweet so many negative things about being gay. Who cares! Gay people don’t have any impact in your way of life so why are you giving them so much thought?

You know, when all of these anti-gay republicans started getting caught in gay scandals, it started to make me think that anyone who is anti-gay must be gay because their whole career ends in a gay scandal. So I’m wondering if all of these anti-atheist people must really be questioning their own religious views, otherwise they wouldn’t be bothered by atheists so much.

So this is my theory, all of those anti-atheists are really in the closet atheists and they just don’t want to admit it so they are taking out their aggression on all the atheists to cover up their own atheism.  Let that one sink in and get back to me, or don’t, who cares, I don’t.

Prop-8 Decision Today

The NOH8 Campaign twittered this just a few minutes ago:

“: Chicagoans Plan Rally in Response to #PROP8 Ruling   http://tinyurl.com/32q3jrq #NOH8 #LGBT Be heard!”

So I went over to that website and read it. I think that the National Organization for [Straight] Marriage is being just a little melodramatic with this statement.

““We want supporters of marriage all across the country to have a clear understanding of the threat this federal judge poses to the very survival of marriage in America.”

Tell me one straight married couple whose marriage is going to be threatened by gays getting married. Not one! How is gays getting married going to threaten your way of life? It’s not. The whole point of gays wanting to get married is number 1 equal rights and number 2 health care benefits.

I think it sucks that straight married couples who have health care benefits through their employer can pass those benefits over to their spouse but a gay couple is out of luck in that department. Is that what is going to threaten their marriage? The fact that the gays will be able to give their dying partners a chance at life with health insurance?

There are way more benefits than I just spoke about such as being able to bury your partner, being able to make medical decisions in the hospital as well as after death when they have passed on.  Many more which I can’t think of so if you can enlighten me with a comment.

Go lay an egg.

Rick Jacobs, founder of the pro-LGBT unions Courage Campaign said in this article . “I can only say that based on the evidence in the trial, it is absolutely clear that allowing gays and lesbians to marry will strengthen families and the nation,” and “No matter how the judge rules … we’ve already won a significant victory because the other side admitted they have no argument.”

See that? No argument. They have to prove that gays getting married is going to threaten marriage and they can’t prove it because it’s not going to threaten marriage. How can it? I just don’t see the logic in their argument.

The religious people don’t want gays getting married because “the bible says it’s wrong” boo hoo. They say being gay is a sin so they shouldn’t be allowed to get married because being gay is a choice. Ok well if being gay were a choice then I can choose to be straight right? … … … yeah, not gonna happen. It’s not that easy because I have news for you, I was born this way. I didn’t have a choice in the matter, it just happened to me.

Believe me, if I had a choice I wouldn’t choose to have eggs thrown at me, punches thrown at my face by my stepdad and the other kids in school who made fun of me and called me faggot everyday. I didn’t choose that, I wouldn’t choose that. So their argument has no merit since it’s a BS argument.

The ruling will be in some time this afternoon.  This whole prop-8 BS campaign is never going to end because both sides are just going to keep appealing it.
