If atheism is a religion…

My friend, Vincent, left this on my facebook wall.  It’s just the type of “fuck with ‘em while smiling” activism that I love.  If I were still a college activist, I’d be printing out these petitions today.

The next time someone says “atheism is a religion”, you should ask them if they support atheist organizations being able to claim discrimination and oppression every time they’re criticized, getting tax breaks, and being able to have special laws that render them immune from normal ones.

I’m pretty sure that if you hand them a petition to sign, called “equal rights for the atheist religion”, they’ll sing a different tune.

Love it.
