I found the following video a couple of weeks ago and have been meaning to put it up. It’s a ’5 minute Reader’s Digest version’ of why some of us atheists care about religion.
The fact of the matter is that ‘religion’ isn’t a private matter between the religious adherent and the object of their religion as many would have us believe. Many religions consider it a duty of it’s adherents to force their various religious rules and regulations upon every one else, members or not and have no intention of ever ceasing to do so.
Some are so bad they consider not letting them hit you up for membership in their club to be an act of persecution. They consider any law that is not in accordance with their beliefs to be abridgments of their religoius freedom rights (ie, marriage equality laws). They want to pass laws that are in accordance with their religious rights (ie, laws banning marriage equality, forbidding abortion in it’s entirity). The list just goes on and on.
Not caring about these and more is absurd for they are not content to ‘live and let live’.
