Atheist Mockery of Religion

Atheist Mockery of Religion

Any theist who engages with the wider population of atheists on the Internet and especially on social media sites will soon be struck by the amount of mockery leveled against religion and specifically Christianity. In Western democracies with freedom of speech that is, of course, their prerogative and fundamental right but that doesn’t mean that it should not be exposed for all to see and especially when that mockery is a replacement or a mask for a lack of ability to rationally engage in ongoing debate on theism vs atheism.

The temptation is of course to respond with just as much mockery as is given out but that would be a mistake, lowering the standard of rational debate to the level of those unable to engage in it. The appropriate response is therefore to just let people see the complete, total, disrespect those atheists who frequently engage in this mockery have for other peoples beliefs and worldviews. So that is what we will do here, to let as many people as visit this page see atheists without the mask of niceness they pretend to have over theists. If the posting of this mockery serves no other purpose than to strengthen the resolves of theists to oppose the false worldview of atheism at every turn then it has indeed, served a useful one.

Regardless of the truth or falsity of Christianity to mock the crucifixion – a most horrible manner of death – of another human being in a point in history hardly represents anything admirable in the mocker and one would but hope that all atheists who also subscribe to secular humanism would be just as appalled at this as those to whom that crucifixion has life-changing meaning.

Bible Reading for Children to Age of Eighteen is Child Abuse

“If you let your children read the bible before they are 18, you should be arrested for child”.

I think this comment speaks for itself and doubt that many atheists would support it. It’s simply a ridiculous statement intended to cause maximum offence .  The Bible like any work that records ancient history does contain sometimes shocking details but we ought to no more protect young adults from this than any other retelling of history. Added to that is the fact that unlike some of that other ancient history the Bible is widely recognised for it’s admirable, moral and beautiful poetic accounts.

What can one say about this cheap wordplay with no substance behind it and involving the many people suffering and dying from AIDS to the cause of mocking religion. It pretty much speaks for itself that any rational, freethinking, tolerant and informed individual would find some satisfaction or pleasure from posting such a photo on a public forum.
