Tell me this doesn’t sound like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity or any other white conservative dude with a huge public platform?
These men give atheists a bad name, and they give liberalism a bad name.
While I agree that the mainstream liberal ideology is sort of useless, I think what Maher, Harris, and Dawkins say and have said about Muslims over and over again for the last decade is quite obviously racist and imperialistic.
Been a while since I posted, but this is something I think about a lot. The failure of liberals [especially white liberals] to look at the world around them and think critically. If you think a religion or all religions is the greatest threat to existence, I think you’re being a bit insane.
Religion is a tool used by humans. Some use it for antisocial purposes, and some use it for prosocial purposes.
If I murder someone with a hammer, the hammer is not to blame.
If I murder someone in the name of christianity or judaism or islam, it says more about me than it does about any of those religions.
