Why do Atheist "ALWAYS" try to tell "US" what to believe ?
use of the word ALWAYS makes the assertion NOT CREDIBLE
use of the word "US" makes the assertion VAGUE . non specific
BELIEF is a persons CONVICTION of the TRUTH of a proposition /PROPOSAL or allegation WITHOUT direct knowledge
the catagory being R & S Presenting the best demonstration of the hypocrisy of the question
BLASPHAMY ( LAWS ) the act of "INSULTING" or showing contempt or lack of reverence to a "DEITY" or "SACRED" things or toward something considered "Sacred" or inviolate .....
. basically making it a Crime for a person NOT to accept the Declarative statements of RELIGION , additionally a crime for not BEHAVING as if they accept the declarative claims of a religion
RELIGION ( sociology & anthropology ) is the cultural SYSTEM of DIRECTED behaviors and practices ethics sacred places or things DOCTRINE (text ) and world view of SOCIETAL ORGANIZATION that promote proposition/proposals of SUPERNATURAL & TRANSCENDENTAL .
RESPONDING to the issue of a CAUSE
Quote If i did not believe in a "CAUSE" , I would not encourage people to FOLLOW IT words have multiple uses .
in this case CAUSE ( NOUN) a person or thing that gives rise to an action , phenomenon or condition ....
. Identify the person or thing ( cause ) that gives rise , and what is the ACTION . phenomenon or condition
example the CAUSE of the car accident was not clear
Use # 2 of CAUSE a principle "AIM" or movement , that , BECAUSE of a deep commitment a person is prepared to "DEFEND" or ADVOCATE " for "
an example Jane devoted her life to the CAUSE of blind people ..
... examining the Jane example what is actually being presented is a "PROBLEM" that Blind People may be discriminated against and not given EQUAL opportunity in society or that society is not set up to accommodate their NEEDS or inclusion of Blind People
, such as talking cross walk signs ...Braille on bathroom doors or access to documents in Braille audio books means of transportation . employment education facilities
...lets now apply that to ATHEIST in society atheist are confronted in many countries by BLASPHAMY LAWS ( which can result in death or imprisonment )
in the USA 7 states have LAWS that Atheist are BANNED from running for public office .. an atheist can face . discriminated in the work place , housing , ( people just present some other EXCUSE not the actual reason )
very similar to JIM CROW Laws "AGAINST" people of COLOR were local and state laws that ENFORCED SEGREGATION related to "PUBLIC" facilities ( buses trains water fountains restaurants schools bathrooms ) and were upheld by the Supreme court to be constitutional based on the claim of the phrase " SEPARATE but EQUAL "
eventual were OVER TURNED by the " CIVIL RIGHTS " act of 1964 and the Voting RIGHTS act of 1965 .... we can also apply the PROBLEM of state and local LAWS written "AGAINST" the LGBT population ...
. the" CAUSE" is infringement on peoples rights of being TREATED Equally .... what happen is laws are written with the INTENT and "AIM" "AGAINST" certain population as if their EXISTENCE is in itself a CRIME
psychologically the premise that they are "INFERIOR" ..
.. similar to POTUS " SHITHOLE" statement another example
Mr. Whitaker ( acting AG ) statement QUOTE " JUDGES SHOULD HAVE A BIBLICAL -VIEW of JUSTICE " that JUDGES SHOULD be CHRISTIANS and PROPOSED BLOCKING non RELIGIOUS people from Judicial appointments ... and questions the judgement of SECULAR Lawyers
basically a claim of SUPERIORITY ( RELIGION the proposition and proposal of the SUPERNATURAL
( aka spirits . ghost demons gods souls and after-life CONCEPTS )
and at the same time TARGETING others DEVALUING them and declaring them INFERIOR Some groups of people " FEAR CHANGE " its like the word " EVOLUTION " aka Change over time ... but it happens everyday sometimes the CHANGE is a few steps forward and sometimes a few steps backward but Change happens ..
.. HOW fast is the problem for some PEOPLE:E .. the PHONE ( TELECOMMUNICATIONS ) changed from its invention in 1876. to today 2018 ( 142 YEARS ) we could go as far back as SMOKE SIGNALS LOL or Message runner
. consider the OLD WALL PHONE with the hand Crank and a person got the operator Aunt Bee said Clara could you get me Bob the grocer .
.. today a person has a I PHONE its portable no middle person push symbol of a phone for a connection or text Walmart and you can drive there and they put the groceries in the car and a person already paid for it with a credit card
