I no have any problem with you speaking out against the Christian religion. I speak out against your religion claim of atheism, but I don't believe you're an atheist.<quoted text> Not to those who believe in slavery.
<quoted text> You'll likely never get the distinction in conceptualization here.
In that line of conceptual reasoning, there are those who believe slavery is acceptable, and those who don't have that belief and speak out about it it. Just like theists and atheists do concerning the deities of theists.
<quoted text> But that isn't what was pointed out in the example.
Be sure to serve that straw man some extra red herring.
I never stated that slavery didn't exist. What I did say and do, was compare your belief that I shouldn't say anything about your deity belief(which is the issue here)since I don't have your belief that deities exist, to the advocates of slavery who believed it was acceptable to enslave people, and the abolitionist who didn't have that belief.
The entire point is you believe that since I don't have your belief, I shouldn't say anything about it, and the only way I should be able to say something about it is if I believe as you do.
I should just be quiet about it, no?
You're suggesting only theists should be able to speak about deity beliefs, yes?
It's all about your belief, and that you believe your belief should be granted a special status, beyond discussion or criticism - and that if people don't have a belief in your belief, we just shouldn't comment about it at all.
Your position is ridiculous.
Show me a billboard on the internet where a bunch of atheists go speak out against Islam.
Islam reveres the Torah/Old Testament--so how come you can't find a billboard with atheists speaking out against Islam if we use your same example of slavery? I mean, many atheists are in europe where Islam is a stronghold.
So how come it so easy to find atheists on the internet everywhere talking out against Christianity, but not Islam?
If your logic applies, then it should apply to Islam as well.
But it does not. Because atheists like you swarm the Christian billboards not because you believe the Christian God is a myth, but because you think He is real. But you not think that way about the God of Islam is real, that the reason you won't find atheists arguing against Islam like they do Christianity.
You not no atheist and your position is ridiculous.
