Hate mail: Apparently I’m a “crazy fundie”
From the IAmAnAtheist.com comment form:
I don’t want to be a moral atheist, you are being a theist yourself by trying to condemn atheists to be moral.
Morality is a tool used by the government and religious hierarchy to control the masses;society. YOU CRAZY FUNDIE!!!
Thor looks down on such behaviour.
I agree that many religions try to co-opt morality (for example, by declaring disbelief in their religion immoral), but the fact that something can be misused is not evidence that it is bad in and of itself.
I would also like to point out that your letter implies that you have a moral system. You seem to be saying that controlling society with religion is a bad thing, but if you do not recognize morality, then you cannot judge something good or bad.
My guess is that your working definition of “morality” is flawed.
