…with these anti-religious memes I find on Facebook. Here’s another one:
How in the world is this NOT bigotry?
How in the world is this NOT hate or hate speech?
How in the world is this NOT narrow-mindedness?
How in the world is this NOT fundamentalism?
And…this meme, from what I’m reading here, pretty much addresses the Judeo-Christian-Muslim traditions. Whoever came up with this silly thing equates the word “religion” with those traditions only.
He or she clearly would not include something like Wicca, or Hinduism, or Buddhism, or the Native American indigenous traditions, or Asatru, etc, among the category of “religions.” But they are “religions.”
I remember reading about an event that happened during the French Revolution. Madame Marie-Jeanne Phlippon Roland was executed by decapitation, and her last words were “O liberty, O liberty! What crimes are committed in thy name!” She could just as easily have said “O reason, O reason! What crimes are committed in thy name!”
So be careful, atheists and nonbelievers, that you don’t fall into the very trap of fundamentalism that you yourselves complain about…
