Theists can just say "It's God's will" or "God will care for them/it" whenever an issue arises. People need to fight for what they believe in and theism allows people to simply let the imaginary sky daddy do the work. It's lazy. Ergo I think it's a moral duty to promote atheism - to try and convert as many theists into atheists as possible. Thoughts?

If you see atheism as a sort of saving grace, that it can save you from a life of misery, if you consider being religious akin to having cancer, etc.. than yes you have moral responsibility to promote atheism.

If you don't then I'd consider you morally apathetic.

It's usefulness is irrelevant. Utilitarianism is a slippery slope.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein It is objectively immoral to kill innocent babies. Please stick to the guilty babies.
