Wow, this is a great post by Greta Christina! It’s not new, but definitely worth reading.
One of the most common criticisms lobbed at the newly-vocal atheist community is, “Why do you have to be so angry?” So I want to talk about:
1. Why atheists are angry;
2. Why our anger is valid, valuable, and necessary;
And 3. Why it’s completely fucked-up to try to take our anger away from us.
Oy, I accidentally published this earlier today and then deleted it because I wanted to save it for adding a personal commentary later. But now I found out that someone has already linked to it — on a knitting website no less — so I’m putting it back up and will add my personal commentary when I have time.
Happy New Year!
