Atheist Meme of the Day: Atheists Don’t Hate God

Scarlet letter Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day, from my Facebook page. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Atheists do not hate god, and we are not angry at God. Atheists don’t believe in God. We’re not angry at God, any more than we’re angry at Zeus or leprechauns or any other supernatural entities we don’t believe exist. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Twittered by me as

    Atheists do not hate god & we are not angry at God nor at other supernatural entities that don’t exist. See http://bit.ly/5hSIYA

    *applauds*
    This one’s been annoying me a lot recently.
    “You hate god.”
    “no, I don’t hate god, how can I hate something that doesn’t exist.”
    “see, you say he doesn’t exist – your hatred blinds you to the truth”…
    and so on, round and round the circle.

    I know one atheist who hates god, but his emotions towards religion are combined with his built up anger from being a gifted kid talked down to by adults. Teachers and priests.
    That guy also has no problem pointing out people’s misconceptions about him himself, though.

    Well, isn’t it religion, and those religious people that he hates then?
    Many atheists aren’t exactly happy about organized religion and many of its practitioners – for good reasons, that is not the same thing as hating the fictional character that these people and organisations claim is real and stand behind their actions.
