Angry column short on facts
Ryan Speaker, your article in Wednesday’s Collegian contained little fact and lots of anger, but I guess that’s why we’re on the opinion page. First, you say that Christians try to shame atheists, yet the tone of your article was shaming me as a Christian for not being an atheist.
You say that all we need is one book and a little faith, but all you need is evidence. The reason you think your evidence is correct is because you have faith that it is correct, and I have faith that God is correct. I’m not angry at you for having faith in something I don’t, so why are you angry at me for having faith in something you don’t?
“Is there ever a good time to admit being an atheist?” Not with your attitude. If you persist on labeling Christians as condescending, shaming, and dishonest because you’ve had a bad experience with a few of us, all you’re doing is inspiring negativity.
