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.

    That person is joking. The Norse religion isn’t exactly popular at this time.
