Forums Are Headaches Waiting To Happen
So I’m trying to conduct some unscientific polling in a few religious forums to determine the main reasons why atheists are so disliked. I get this conclusion from this study.
So far, I’m find this effort incredibly annoying. This is what I post:
I’m conducting research on why atheists are so hated by the American populace and I’d like to hear why you think they are viewed so negatively. I understand that many of you don’t have any hard feelings against atheists, so please don’t feel the need to defend yourself, I mean no offense to anyone.
So why do you think atheists are the most hated and least trusted minority in America?
First of all, moderators on Christian forums are Nazis. Every new topic has to be given a look over by the resident fuhrer.
You are receiving this notification because your topic “Why Are Atheists So
Hated?” at “Christian Forums” was disapproved by a moderator or
The following reason was given for the disapproval:
The reported post does not fit into any other category, please use the
further information field.
Potential confrontation due to assumption of “hate”.
Oh noes, hate is too strong of a word to use, so I’ll have to reword it and wait another six hours for some moderator to deny it for some other reason.
Second of all, every Christian who doesn’t have any hard feelings against atheists wants to defend themselves when I told them I understand they exist.
Of course, every atheist that peruses these forums want give their own reasons why they think they are hated:
Atheists are disliked because they engage their critical thinking skills and refuse to be indoctrinated in a dogmatic belief system that has absolutely no archeological, historical, biographical, or scientific evidence to support it.
Which is clearly speculation and does me no good. I guess I have to figure out a better way formulate this question.
