I’m an atheist, yes, but first and foremost I’m a human being that’s trying to be a good person. I know what you mean, and I’ve seen it time and time again. The atheists on tumblr, the atheists on Facebook, the atheists on Reddit, they all seem to have an intense disdain for any religious people or anyone who isn’t a militant atheist like them. It’s the elitist mentality that creates the stigmas, and it’s up to us, the decent people, to go against that stigma every chance we get.
I appreciate your words; it is messages like this and people like you that make me glad I run this blog. If I had never had any messages whatsoever before this one, this message alone and messages like it make the whole 4+ years worth it.
