Atheist Meme of the Day: Religion Has No Right to Special Respect

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

Religion has no right to special respect. It is entirely fair to criticize religion, question it, point out its flaws, ask it to support itself with evidence, and mock it when it’s being ridiculous — just like we do with political opinions, scientific positions, artistic expressions, and any other ideas being expressed in the public forum. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    If we mock religion for being ridiculous, there won’t be time to do anything else.

    This may be the most important idea to be suggested in thousands of years.
    Of course it is true that religions deserve no special respect or protection from criticism, but to the religious, there is no more dangerous notion.
