Matt Dillahunty on Christians who assume that good people _can't_ be atheists



I'm not sure why we are being afflicted with this Jordan Peterson person, but Dillahunty here does a great job of describing what Christians do who just can't accept that atheists can be moral.

2. "Christians...can't accept that atheists can be moral."

Bingo! This is what my 92yo mother thinks. And she knows I'm an atheist. She actually stated this to my brother recently who told me. (Folks lose filters as dementia progresses.)

I laughed.

Her statement didn't hurt my feelings in the least since mom and I have been estranged for decades over ever subject you can imagine and I already knew she felt this way. As is typical of all RWNJ's, her compassion extends only to those identical to her in most every way.

I'm going to hell.

3. I have always found it interesting that someone can get a doctorate studying something

that has never been proven to exist.
Or maybe Peterson has one of those internet doctorates?

Maybe it is me, but those loudly professing their religion always seemed a bit shady to me. They seemed to act as if they are trying to get away with something while their parents aren't looking, like sneaking that first beer.

Most of the non-religious I know and have known are pretty open about what they do and why they do it and have to square it with themselves.
