Earlier this year, the student newspaper at Ferris State University (in Michigan) published an opinion piece that featured this jab at atheists:
I’ve always found atheists to be a rather unfriendly lot of people, what with their unsolicited “science-based” tirades and my-way-or-the-highway attitudes towards the rest of the world.
However, when looking at the way their opposition usually behaves it’s not hard to understand the bitterness. Still, you’d think they’d want to be more welcoming considering they’re fighting a battle they can’t help but lose (and this writer hopes they do.)
It plays right into the already-nasty stereotypes about atheists and the writer never gives concrete examples of what he’s talking about. Hell, he makes it sound like religious people never think they’re right…
Anyway, what made the comments especially hurtful was that there’s a Secular Student Alliance group on campus and he never bothered to talk to them first.
