Ask an Atheist with Sam Mulvey

A Sad, But Unsurprising Update

Teresa MacBain has written an update about her dealings with her former church at the Richard Dawkins website.

I assume, based upon the locked doors, that they felt all atheists must be thieves. The idea that I would sneak up in the night, back up to the doors of the church and make off with all the valuables inside is absolutely reprehensible. If I wanted to ‘rob them blind,’ I had more opportunity while I served within the church as their pastor.

As much as I dislike religion and most religious people, I don’t think what the church did was unreasonable at all. I think MacBain is making this out to be a bigger deal than it is and is assuming too much. I doubt this has anything to do with “all atheists must be thieves” (this ex-pastor is coming off as a drama queen) but probably has more to do with they feel defrauded, and maybe just angry.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
