“How do you know that is wrong?” A coworker asks. The conversation pertaining pedophilia. “Excuse me.” I retort stunned that he would assume I would not know that pedophilia is wrong since I am atheist. I am constantly defending my morals and humanity to the religious at work. This kind of blind stupidity is what I try to raise awareness about constantly. I can surely guess that I am not alone. I know that there are more godless out there experiencing this same kind of badger. I’m also sure that their patience runs thin as does mine. How many times can I politely reason with people without yelling? How many times can I be spoken down to without a short response? I always advocate logic and reason. Stay calm and use reason is my motto. Especially since being a belligerent dick won’t do anything to help my cause. One can only drink so much. Any tips or pointers from my fellow atheists would be appreciated. Christians can give advice too just don’t offer to pray for me.
