Response to Thats my opinion (Reply #9)

Wed May 16, 2012, 08:29 PM

14. Let me try again

1st no I didn't read the link I was responding only to your words.
2nd Why would religion determine who is a valued colleague?
3rd I am not talking about where you posted this I am talking about wanting to bring groups together and that won't happen when religion is brought into a discussion about human rights.

in my experience religious people have been notoriously judgmental and unconcerned with human rights unless it falls into their religion whereas atheists don't need to know what you believe in order to care or to help you. It has been my experience that as human beings they aren't going to try and take birth control or choice from me, they won't force me to feel guilty because I am not atheist and I have never once been told that I am a heathen or that I am going straight to hell if I didn't do what an atheist said.

For the record I am neither atheist or agnostic and I have experienced many different Christian churches including Mormon, Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran, Episcopalian, Assembly of God, Unity, Church of the Nazarene and my great grandmother was a Nazarene tent preacher. I had friends of every religion and no religion and my anecdotal experience was that when the chips were down no church friends came to help me but my atheist friend did. I realize that others mileage may vary but I take offense when religious people act morally superior to anyone else not like them.
