In light of being called fanatical and full of fiery passion lately, this video makes me feel a little better. I was pretty offended at first, but it’s true. I am passionate about non-belief.
I wouldn’t stand by while a friend was abused by her boyfriend. Why would I stand by why she was mentally abused by something as unprovable and relentlessly damaging as religious teachings? I wouldn’t stand by. I would intervene.
The video is a bit verbose and long. The gist is this: “I may be labeled a militant, but there’s a big difference between militant atheism and militant religiosity.”
