Why I am Never Afraid of the Word - ATHEIST

‘Respect for religion’ has become a code phrase meaning ‘fear of religion’. Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, yes, our fearless disrespect... Salman Rushdie I am told that we atheists should avoid identifying ourselves in public as atheists because most Filipino believers find the word "atheist" as something dirty, vulgar, and evil. That we must only identify ourselves as Humanists or that we are Freethinkers. So as not to shake, rattle, and roll - hurting the thoughtlessness of the sick believers who invented the word "atheist" to begin with! Well, for my part, I say that I am an ATHEIST and if you do not like the word ATHEIST - then that’s you problem, not mine! We atheists are honest thinkers. We do not care to be intimidated by the frightened or be threatened by the corrupt or childish believers. We atheists have no problem enjoying the greatest and the most wonderful of freedom - the freedom of expression... The truth hurts, but lies are far more damaging and can last for a thousand years... I am happy to inform you dear believers that when we atheists never tell lies to any of you. When we openly admit to you that we are atheists - we are telling you the truth. We have no reason whatsoever to be lying to any of you... Poch Suzara Google# Facebook# Twitter# Atheists#
