Is your view on atheists mostly positive or mostly negative
Most of us are as regular as a person than the moderate religious person. We don't give a shit who you believe in. Just don't force it on anyone.
I don't have a problem with them as a person. But as for their beliefs, I have a negative view on them.
neutral, except for non agnostic atheists and those that make ignorant blanket statements about all religions.. And those that bother religious people just for having a religion
Even if I weren't an atheist, I doubt I'd have anything but a positive view of them. They're just people.
Bill Maher is what made me put a negative impression on Athiests.
If I let a single example of a group put me off to the whole group, I would have a negative impression of everyone.
Personally, I think Richard Dawkins is a more off-putting atheist than Bill Maher, but it's probably a pretty close thing. They both can be giant buttheads. As a scientist (and an atheist) I find Dawkins to be an embarrassment.
Alright, let me reword. I have a negative view on anyone who likes to make fun of anyone else's beliefs except for scientology and satanism.
I would agree on that. Totally.
I have a negative view of anyone who says that "the gays" are the reason a hurricane hit a particular city, too. Doesn't mean I have anything against Christians, in general.
I consider myself a Christian and I am pro lgbt. Id agree that social conservatives need to get with the times.
