Jamming it Down Our Throats
These days, in the struggle between theists and atheists, I keep seeing this statement: “When atheists start jamming it down our throats, they are just as bad as the religious people they oppose.”
First of all, I never feel that anybody is jamming anything down my throat. Whenever anybody posts anything, I am free to make a choice- Look, or Don’t look. Get offended, or move along. When I choose to stay and argue, I can only blame myself if I get offended.
However- I strongly disagree with the “just as bad as” comments. Look- its very simple, just like the ‘truth defense’ in defamation lawsuits. If the defamatory statement is true, then by all means: go and defame away.
I don’t hate religion because it’s always being jammed down my throat. I hate it because it is false. I hate it because it is illogical. I hate religion because it is anti-science. I hate it because it moves humanity backwards.
But sometimes I still love religion, because sometimes, it can be so god-damned hilarious.
