Why Should Atheists Have to Show Respect For Religion?

'Among progressive and moderate religious believers, ecumenicalism is a big deal. For many of these believers, being respectful of religious beliefs that are different from theirs is a central guiding principle. In this view, different religions are seen as a beautifully varied tapestry of faith: each strand with its own truths, each with its own unique perspective on God and its own unique way of worshipping him.

Human Rights...

Human Rights are not 'god given', if they were, we'd have a terrible time deciding what a human is. As an Atheist it's simple for me - all homo sapiens are human beings. No religion can change this! So, if you're reading this and are indeed of the homo genus, you are human; if you're not  -…

Respect to Dead People and Life

While browsing ThinkAtheist, I encountered a blog post that called my attention; it was this one, called "Billy Mays... Dead. Four "Celebrities" in a week WTF".
