    I think I can count on my hands the number of atheists I've ever seen do anything except bitch about the religious. Then again, bitching is the liberal pastime...so there's that.

    They're more consumed with religious doctrine than the folks in the pews.

    Of course, they're are some Christians who seem consumed with atheists for some reason. But they are a tiny few. Best to do what everyone else does: ignore them.

      We don't wear badges, or rings, or anything of that sort to tell other folks that we're atheists. And if you see someone doing charitable work, it's usually, in most circumstances, considered at least a little bit rude to ask them about their religious beliefs or lack thereof.

      So perhaps your anecdotal observations don't really tell the whole story, eh?

      Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.

    •  You have not one iota of an idea (0+ / 0-)

      of the roles that atheists play in the community, as members and as workers in charity.  Have you even bothered to look up atheist charities?  

      What am I saying. Of course you haven't, because in your book, only religious people have morals-right?

      I'll tell why many people become atheists... because they read books like the bible and realized that most people are more moral than the gods portrayed in the texts.

      Ok- you can go back to your "ignoring them" mode now. But watch out at night. There are atheists everywhere!
