"  That's speculative and not relevant to my point.  It's not just about them; it's about everyone.  It's about onlookers who don't speak up because no one else is.  It's about the victims of hate…"

"I like your input. But I sstill disagree. I think if someone is completely unwilling to listen to reason and their beliefs/actions severely offend someone, then there is nothing you can do and nothing you SHOULD do but ignore it. Hating them…"

"I don't think "label" is a metaphor; you're quite literally labeling a banana as yellow or labeling a person as Atheist.     Anyway, pigeonholing (in the social sense) conveys a different idea than a simple…"

"Stereotypes like bananas go yellow when ripe.    I think the problem you are having is people assume things which your labels do not describe (like "atheists are Satan worshipers" for example). Propagating stereotypes is a good…"

"It's a metaphor; the implication of physical space is irrelevant.  The point is these "labels" only serve to propagate stereotypes."

matt.clerke replied to Shalee Mae Coleman's discussion 'Battle Royal of Religion, Does Atheism come out on top?'
"I prefer the term "label".   Something can have multiple labels(banana's are fruits, yellow when ripe, and grow on trees) whereas pidgeonhole implies a physical space which, as we all know, something can only occupy one…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I am an Existential Atheist, who believes that this is the only life we get so we are required to make our own meaning, and the most of it. Above all I believe in compassion and love of others, and understanding and acceptance of those different from me.
Age
19-24
Why are you here?
I am here to discover my Atheist community
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I wasn't a part of organized religion growing up, but I though that I was suppose to be a Christian. When I got older, I started questioning those obligations, and discovered that I don't believe in God, or any higher power, so there was no sense in being religious.
