“We are truly lost. But I know that we can be found. I will never give up on people like you. I know you are a good person underneath it all. You were just unfortunate enough to be born into this culture of death and have been surrounded by it your entire life.”
Emphasis mine. Name another atheist who speaks this way. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like Christian language to me. My suspicions aren’t without reason.
And the demonization continues. Did you notice the word I used, a word based on theological concepts of right and wrong — demonization? Even so, it is commonly used in the English vernacular, regardless of religious faith or lack thereof. It is a word that connotes attempts to demoralize or debase a person because you don’t agree with their ideology. And it’s one of the worst ways to attack an argument because, in reality, you are attacking the person, not their ideas. This usually occurs because their ideas are sound.
PSA: You don’t have to lack compassion, empathy, and a moral compass to be free of religion. You can be an atheist and still value human life — ALL of it.
I gladly work with every person and group that works to end the human tragedy of abortion. Abortion is not a religious issue, it’s a human rights issue, so even if I were religious, my opinion is no less valuable.
There are many groups of people who know that abortion is the killing of innocent living human beings. Join us, together we can end this human atrocity.
