Why Are So Many People Flagging Atheist Mom's CNN iReport Article As 'Inappropriate?'

Jan 25, 2013 Full story: www.mediaite.com 8

With close to 740,000 views and 10,000 comments, a CNN iReport article titled “Why I Raise My Children Without God” (http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-910282?hpt=hp_c3) is one of the site’s most popular features. But now CNN has been forced to defend the article from users who won’t stop flagging it as “inappropriate.”

CNN hasn’t flagged this iReport as inappropriate, but some community members have. This is a divisive topic, however it does not violate our Community Guidelines, so we ask people to please stop flagging it. We will continue to review the story as often as possible.

Are the godbots having their persecution-complex attack again? They can't handle it when non-believers are successful at anything like raising children without resorting to carrot and stick mythologies.

Obviously, the godbots want to suppress any voice of dissent. Understandable, from their point of view. It only took a couple of children to observe that the emperor had no clothes to bring down the whole delusion. As long as everyone around you assures you that they believe in the Invisible Man in the Sky, you can convince yourself that your belief is reasonable. Once someone questions the belief, you have to think about it, and actually justify the belief. Since there is no real evidence to support the belief, suppressing open statements of disbelief is the easiest way to maintain the delusion.

Gotta love how they think freedom of speech is allowed as long as we don't expose their delusions for what they are.

Believers wish to silence and remove this great article. CNN is doing the right thing.

Let the Christholes pray about it :)

Which atheists keep fighting who? Its usually religion that causes trouble, not its absence.

Perhaps the poster intended his remark as an exhortation to atheists to keep up the fight against superstition and those in mental slavery to superstition.

Since the "superstitious" believe they are empowered to create a christian world, any article or discussion contrary to their mind-set is seen as an attack. These "attacks" are just enough to set them off.
