I wish more famous people would come out of the atheist closet. Maybe even at the very least spread the word of social tolerance. There are plenty of scientist, authors, and various scholars that are known atheist, but they aren’t relatable to most people. Once popular culture deems something socially acceptable it generally becomes accepted. Just think of how it once was not an issue to publicly bash gay people or use gay slurs. Where the hell is our no hate campaign? I wish someone with a large enough following would take the initiative. I know Dawkins urged people to “come out”, but not all atheist follow Dawkins or even know who he is. There are plenty of people that don’t believe in god, just because it all sounds like made up magic. They aren’t like most of us on TA that actively seek out knowledge and stay current on religious issues. As usual I’m disappointed in our species. I recently read a lot of wonderful comments about how we all should be “shot in the face” and kind words from good christian people in regards to the 911 museum cross thing. I’m just frustrated.
