I have blogged before about my resentment of the term ‘atheist.’
Why do I need a title to denote what I do not believe in?
I do not believe in vampires; I do not believe in werewolves; I do not believe in the Easter bunny, I do not believe in Santa Clause; I do not believe in Bugs Bunny and rabbits that talk; I do not believe in fairies; I do not believe in angels; I do not believe in devils; I do not believe in demons; and I don’t believe in the Christian fairy tale. So why, from this short list of the many things I do not believe in must I carry a title to denote only one of my many disbeliefs?
I also believe that the word ‘atheist’ somehow legitimizes the Christian religion. It presupposes that there is a god and that Christ was a living breathing man who pissed and shit and woke up many days with a hard on - and was a god living on earth.
If you don’t believe in global warming and evolution you are a ‘science denier’ – you are guilty of ignorance of factual data and as such can be titled. But, the god and Christ fiction has no basis in face – it requires blind faith of its followers. You don’t need a title not to buy into to someone else’s fantasy.
Fundamentalist religions, whether they are Muslim or Christian, are dangerous precepts. They have fanatical followers that are so convinced of their own rightness and righteousness that they are able to justify any atrocity in the name of their god. Evangelicals are only one step away from the Taliban –only our laws restrict them.

The way I see it, there is only one drawback in denying religions: there is no one to call to during orgasm.
