This should be posted on all courthouse lawns where monuments containing the 10 commandments have been erected.
I agree and, furthermore, I do not respect religion's attempt to shape public policies to conform to those beliefs either. Often those kinds of decisions are not based upon any sort of reasoning, logic or rationale whatsoever; just simply some part of an archaic belief that makes no sense.
It is gratifying to know that others feel this way. Out in my everyday world I do not run into these sentiments often.
I really like this and absolutely agree...with two exceptions:
The lines "I do not respect your 'right' to tell me I am an evil person" and "I do not respect your 'right' to tell me I am going to hell" seem to contradict the line "I respect your right to express them". While I certainly disagree with those messages of hate, it is their right to express such feelings. Personally, I think it is in the favor of atheists, because the more religion is associated with the hate and ignorance it propagates, the sooner it will be seen for the archaic belief system that it is.
