The History Channel is premiering a show about the “Dark Ages”. As we all know it was a pretty bad time to be a European, but guess why the History Channel thinks that was so? Well, it was 600 hundred years of godless inhumane behaviour. (Promo here)
Never mind that the “Dark Ages” was anything but dark – why do people have to insist on connecting immoral behaviour with godlessness when it seems that the best way to ensure “inhumane” behaviour is to have a god – whatever it’s name be it Rumpelstiltskin or General Beebopbaloo.
I’ve already sent a complaint and you can do so also.
To whom it may concern:
I recently saw the promo for the Dark Ages and I find myself shocked that you would refer to the “Dark Ages” as a time of “godless inhumane” behaviour. I’m quite sure you’re aware that the Middle Ages can be called many things, but godless isn’t one of them. Thus I have to ask myself why you would choose such a term. My conclusion is that you meant to say “immoral” or even “amoral”.
Why, then, did you not use one of those words? Why not “600 years of Misbehaving Christians”? Why must I, an atheist, be slandered everytime you believers want to make a point about what is often your own violent behaviour, past – present and probably future?
Godlessness does not equate amoral behaviour and I think you need to remove that remark immediately and consider apologizing for the insult you’ve delivered against me and the millions of other godless people here in the states and around the world.
