… why the fuck do atheists have to be so fucking condescending?
I mean, I respect their right to have a lack of belief in anything they want, but somehow they manage to make even their most magnanimous attempts to “accept” religion come off patronising as fuck.
Really? Have you taken a look at the religious? There is not even an attempt at “accepting” a lack of religion at all. Not only do they not respect a lack of belief in their myths but they smugly feel justified in stating that hell is a proper reward for unbeliever. That eternal punishment and torture in hell is what atheist have coming to them.
There is no more passive-aggressive/condescending statement than to say “I’ll pray for you”. That being the case my response will always be “I’ll continue to think for the both of us”. Is that patronising? Who cares. Facts are what they are. Like it or not.
