“Some people have views of God that are so broad and flexible that it is inevitable that they will find God wherever they look for him. One hears it said that ‘God is the ultimate’ or ‘God is our better nature’ or ‘God is the universe.’ Of course, like any other word ‘God’ can be given any meaning we like. If you want to say that ‘God is energy,’ then you can find God in a lump of coal.”

Steven Weinberg, (Jewish and atheist) Nobel Prize-winning physicist.

Utah group says medical marijuana ballot violates freedom of religion:

It’s all about the LDS staying in control. If you’ve ever been a non-mormon living in Utah, you know the discrimination that is heaped on non-believers.

confrontingbabble-on:

Humanity has reasoned a moral code…and a reality based worldview…that is far superior to primitive sectarian religious nationalistic tribalism…

It is free from all conflict causing religious fantasies…and sectarian bigotries…and considers what is in the best long term interests of all of humanity…and their habitat…

Secular humanism…

My beliefs are not yours to judge.

When did religion become such a controversial topic? As each day goes by, more and more people are afraid to speak up about what they believe in… Society has made us think that by professing our love for God, we are committing a social faux pas… When did it become unacceptable for us to stand up and say that we love God? Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights even states “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change their religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest their religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.” So when were we robbed of this fundamental human right!? At the same moment when religion became something that is frowned upon… Regardless of one’s religion, we should all be able to exercise the right to freedom of religion and expression… But also to the freedom of speech! We should have the right to say what we want, when we want, where we want and to whomever we want… But society has made us afraid. Afraid to speak our minds and express ourselves… I say that enough is enough! I WILL NOT hide my religion, or choose not to speak of it, just to abide by society’s standards… Just because I am religious, does not mean that I’m not a “free thinker”… Just because I love God, it does not mean that I can not love anybody else… Just because Jesus is my Lord and Saviour, DOES NOT mean that I am fanatical or extreme in my religious views… And just because I choose to express my religion, my love for God, and extreme gratefulness for Jesus’ sacrifice for humanity, DOES NOT mean that society can judge me or my decisions, beliefs and thoughts in ANY WAY. I will express my religion however I wish, despite societal pressure towards the contrary… I am not afraid.

1. You’re absolutely right you shouldnt be attacked for your beliefs. You have every right to your beliefs, and unless we know the specific implications of your specific beliefs we cant decide to treat you differently for exercising your right.

2. Im super happy you referenced the UDHR because so many people dont know about it and im actively trying to fix that.

3. Secular individuals(and those in minority religions) have been attacked for their beliefs for basically ever. That is not a “our problem is worse than yours” thing, its more of, since you(you and whoever reads op and feels and relates) have experienced this maybe it will be easier to have compassion for those of differing beliefs. Secular individuals have been marginalized and legally persecuted for so long. Constantly fighting for their right to be. I’m hopeful(even though no one should experience it) that since you’ve experienced this, it will help develop more allies. Understanding and shared experiences can do wondrous things.
