I was on another forum recently and the following exchange took place:

Me: "Ok, so if a theist asks me why I am an atheist, and I respond by saying, 'I'm an atheist because I don't see any evidence for deities,' would that be ok? If I was specifically asked?"
Other person: "I don't think it's appropriate to say that, because you're suggesting their beliefs aren't valid."

[Headdesk] This has happened to me a lot, it just blows my mind.

That's fucking stupid.
That person is an idiot and needs to be shot.

Yes, that is fucking stupid. The reason it bothers me, though, is that I've heard the same sort of thing numerous times: that even saying you're an atheist is somehow offensive, and that is what turns me into an "angry atheist." I start getting pissed off when people start telling me I'm offensive just by existing, and this has happened to me.

Well, it's a shining example of religious hypocrisy: "I can insult you for being atheist all I want, and if you get offended by it, it's because you're an angry person at heart!" It's as stupid as saying that a person is "just an angry person at heart" because they got angry that somebody called them a racial slur.

I care what people believe.

People believe in stupid, dangerous bullshit.

…And that makes me angry.
