This one blasts Campus for Christ for holding an election on the existence of God. Mainly I follow the line that “existence is not a popularity contest.”
I can already see the letters coming in now though:
That Ian Bushfield is one angry atheist.
He’s such a fundamentalist, with his belief that God doesn’t exist.
He’s so militant, writing words in a campus newspaper rather than taking up arms or violence.
He’s so arrogant, suggesting we should test ideas against the real world before accepting them.
He’s so intolerant, speaking out when we want him to shut up.
He’s so evangelical, wanting people to question their beliefs, regardless of what they may be.
He’s so Utopian, hoping for a better world.
He’s such a progressive liberal-leftist, even though he hasn’t written about politics or economics yet.
He’s so ignorant, for not accepting or understanding every nuance of my religion.
He’s so immature, clearly belief in God is sophisticated endeavour.
He’s so immoral, I mean, how can you really be good without someone watching over you?
He’s so self-centred, because he doesn’t think God talks to him personally.
He’s so nihilistic, for thinking that for him since life ends at death, he should value every moment he has alive.
He’s so communistic, since he clearly worships the state above his fellow human being.
He’s so angry, because he has to put up with intolerant jerks like us.
God loves you,
