Is believing in God something to be proud of?
I see people all the time bragging about how they believe in God and that they are not ashamed. Everytime I just want to ask them “So what?” For me I feel like it is harder to not believe in God because people automatically think I am a bad person when they hear this. I don’t make it a well known fact that I don’t believe in God because I don’t like the reaction I get. If I were to start a facebook group saying “God does not exist and I am proud to know this.” I would probably get more hate mail than supporters.
When the rumor was going around that one of the victims from the Columbine shootings was killed because she believed in God it really got people going. She was talked about by everyone because she stood up for what she believed… What if it was the other way around though? What if she did not believe in God but the shooter did, so she was shot for not believing. Would she still be talked about for standing up for what she believed?
I just want to be clear that I am not trying to be hateful, this is just something I have been thinking about.
