Has ‘atheist’ become a derogatory remark? I don’t know if I was the one being called an atheist today or if it was the other lady on the forum but it certainly wasn’t done in a nice way. So is ‘atheist’ the new N-word? Is it to mean someone who is stupid or uneducated about their decision to “question” the scriptures? I'm not usually a negative person but I have to say that this was uncalled for.
I'm not calling out all "Christians" in this statement but this person WAS a Christian.
And yes, I am hiding behind the anon button this morning because I am hurt and I would've mentioned this directly to the person who used this term "negatively" but this person hid behind the anon button, too - so I can't.

Atheism is one of the last accepted prejudices. Personally I don't care! I am happy with who I am and if anyone has a problem with that, then that is THEIR problem, not mine.
What was the post that upset you? Can you post the link?
