Hey, did you know that atheism is cool? Fantastic!
An article on WorldNetDaily, which is mostly a load of bullshit, lies, and religious fear-mongering, does make a couple of inspiring points:
Somehow, atheism â€“ just like homosexuality, which used to be considered shameful and something to hide â€“ is now becoming hip, sophisticated, enlightened, even a badge of honor.
In earlier eras, atheists were on the fringes of society, mistrusted by the mainstream. Those few who dared to publicly push their beliefs on society, like Madalyn Murray O’Hair, were widely regarded as malevolent kooks. But today, Hitchens’ No. 1 New York Times bestseller, which has dominated the nonfiction charts for months, boldly condemns religion â€“ including Christianity â€“ as “violent, irrational, intolerant, allied to racism, tribalism, and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry, contemptuous of women and coercive toward children.”
Apparently, according to a new Gallup poll, almost half of all Americans would now vote for an atheist for president.
The article is actually a review of an issue of WhisleBlower that is all about The Rise Of Atheist America. It’s about time! I am going to make a poster of this cover and hang it up on my office bulletin board.
Waddya know, maybe for once in my life I’ll get to hang out with the cool kids!
