Black Atheists

We are a minority within a minority.

Killing unarmed black men and claiming self-defense is the perfect crime in today’s America.

How can you be so selfish? You being black and coming from a religious family how does it feel to break their hearts? How can you be so fucked up in the head? You've removed yourself from your family because they kicked you and your son out because you were an atheist. Ever wonder why? You broke their heart! You wouldn't need a fundraiser if you stayed by your family side and kept your atheism to yourself. You've failed your family, your son, and yourself. How can you live with that?

Y’know, that question kind of stung. While the sting slowly left, I started to wonder who you were and then realized it didn’t matter. You. Don’t matter. People like you have such huge balls when it comes to this anonymous feature Tumblr has. I can bet for sure if this was in my face, I wouldn’t hear from half of you anon-tumblr-courage bigots. I’m a fighter and as much as people were begging me to help me I still said no until someone started it for me. I told them to take it down - they did, but they put it back up. I don’t have to justify anything to you. 

My “family” did disown me, they threw away me and my son’s things and kept whatever else. I blamed myself for that. I let my son down. Guess what though? I don’t need you or anyone else’s approval. My son is who that matters. My unborn daughter is who that matters. My fiance is who that matters. You want to judge me behind a computer screen - anonymously because you’re pathetic. 

I will be starting school this Spring. I’m going for EMT and RN. I am in my own place. I am getting married in November on his birthday. My son is healthy and happy. Things may be really tight right now, but that doesn’t sound or look like failure to me. I did what my family; what my son’s father said I couldn’t. I made it without them. I’m not a piece of shit, I’m not a failure. I’m a fighter. 

So fuck you!

I don’t even understand this message. It’s your fault for being an Atheist? Your family treated you and your son so horribly, but it’s definitely your fault because you have different religious views? I had to read this message a few times because I felt like I must be missing the point. All I’m getting from this is that it’s okay for your family to treat you like shit because you’re an Atheist and you should just shut up because religion is the only way. Everything about this message is so pathetic and cowardly. I’m truly sorry you had to read this, but I’m also very impressed by how you handled it. 

Good luck with everything. It sounds like you have an amazing future ahead of you!

Thank you for your kind words. I’m convinced that this is person is a family member of mine because they saw my response and responded with another message. That one got too personal so I didn’t even bother reading it all let alone responding to it. I’ve given them enough of my attention for one night.

Fuck that anon. That’s complete and utter bullshit. You did nothing wrong and you know it. Best of luck to you and your son.

Thank you.

Hey. Not a question but as a white atheist I'm glad you're so open about the shit that goes on. Even inside our already small community. It's stupid that mist atheists come away from religion because of its effects and its way of dividing people and yet we as a minority divide ourselves in race and priority seeking to put more privileged white atheists in the spot light. Anyway. Im glad you're saying what needs to be said.

Thank you! 

**Finally, some positivity in my inbox.**

Deflection. Typical. Tell that other anon she/he can go kick rocks with her/his face. Think about that long. and. hard!

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

Anonymous asked:
But can anyone actually prove the first people were born Christians? That anon needs to go away and think long and hard.

Exactly. 

Anonymous asked:
So what came first, the atheist or the christian? You would say atheist, right since we were apparently "born athiest" as you athetits say. So, wouldn't that mean the burden of proof would be on you athetits since there had to be a non-believer first?

You took away from your statement with the grammatical errors and using ‘athetits’.

Anonymous asked:
why should the burden of proof be on the believer?

I’ll make this as simple as I can:

If you make a claim, you have to prove it.

Pastor Josh Feuerstein recently put up a $100,000 challenge to anyone who could prove that God doesn’t exist. Seth Andrews, host of www.thethinkingatheist.com, responds.

Must not have heard ‘the burden of proof is on the believer’.

Does "thank god annoy you? If so why? If it does doesn't that make you petty and childish? What is to you if people thank god?

I have a feeling if I answer this asinine question that I’ll just be going in circles with you, I just KNOW it!
