Freedom to hate (2) Tue, Jan 21, 2014
One of the things I really enjoy about being a new atheist is that I finally have the freedom to hate whoever I want, for whatever reason I can fathom.  This may sound shallow and pessimistic, and maybe it is.  But as a former Christian, I was taught to love my neighbor, love my enemy, and if somebody was a jerk, to turn the other cheek.  If I even thought about hating someone, it was equivalent to murder.  So basically my feelings were suppressed and invalidated. 

Coming out of the proverbial closet has given me a freedom to feel however I want to feel, and it's surprisingly refreshing.  I don't have to pretend.  I don't have to take the high road or feel bad about committing almost-murder.  I can hate whoever I damn well please, and it's awesome. #religion

A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race appear?" The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind made." Two days later the girl asked her father the same question. The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved." The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?" The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple: I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his."
