Rational Atheism

Sharing Reasonable Secular Ideas

620 notes

By no means is every person claiming to be Christian personally against human and civil rights. However, look at the sorted history of American civil rights violations… no group has more consistently been at the forefront than Christianity. What do these cases have in common- they are groups without the means to fight back. Once they can, Christianity recedes its fight… recall slavery, women’s rights, interracial marriage, black rights, and more. Oppressing groups that can’t fight back until the point that they can is not enforcing religious doctrine; it’s religious bullying.
