Waco, I'm not an Atheist. I believe in God, talk to him quite often , as a matter of fact...I just have a problem with Organized Religion. They and God are not one and the same, in my way of thinking. In fact, most of the time they are total Strangers to one another, IMO!<quoted text> Neither do I criticize you guys who are atheists.We all walk a different road.
But, like you, I have no problem with Atheists. It's their Right and their choice to be One and it's none of my business...as long as they don't try to force it on me. I feel the same way about People who belong to an Organized Religion. It's the "forcing it on me and/or Others" that I can't tolerate.
One's Faith is a private matter, IMO, and Nobody should try to force or badger you into it, or out of it. That is totally the Individual's decision and it's Nobody else's business.
