What is the Atheists motivation to "debunking religion and or Christianity? From my perspective I can see only 2 reasons why they should have any concern. The first one is the idea that we exclude people and make them feel left out and or divide families etc.. The second is the fact that religious beliefs shape the way we might vote politically.
To answer the first concern about "feeling left out". What should we do? Quit going to church and quit celebrating religious holidays? I don't want anyone to feel left out. But why would you even feel that way if it's something you don't even believe in? Does me reciting the "Apostle's Creed" in a private church service make you feel guilty or left out? The fact that families are divided and or split may happen but if it's done maliciously then there is a problem with the people involved, not religion. Making one choose or reject a position doesn't mean there must be animosity amongst the 2 sides.
So now politically, we all vote according to our beliefs, religion is just one part of our beliefs and how we might vote. Where do we draw the line? You can only vote if your IQ is higher than 100? Or if you were raised by hippies, or Jews or Mormons or foreigners or Christians or women or men or blacks or whites or little people or Atheists or anyone who thinks different than we do? I mean it was illegal before 9-eleven to fly a plane into a building you know.
I think it's admirable that people try to make a change for the better. Even if it's an Atheist trying to do what they feel is right. But "if I were an atheist" I would care less about all these things. I'd say whatever man, more power to 'em.
Is there something I'm missing?
