Your point makes sense. There may be ways to better get the point across, but what they are doing is still worthwhile. I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you, but we, as people who believe in freedom of speech, religion, etc,. should still support what they are doing.

As much as hate the fedora atheist people...... It let slip at work that I was an atheist (someone knew I was, pointed out how I jolly the fuck up around the holidays because I love christmas, yet one little fucker from the warehouse won't stop ranting and raving about paganism and blah blah blah dumb shit)
I actually felt like an outcast that. I got berated like hell, never questioned anyone before that day. And I was made to feel like shit, like a goddamned awful human being because of it. Any time I tried to state something logically (Me: "Well that doesn't make sense to me." Them: "So you just don't understand it, being stupid isn't the same as an atheist") like wtf. And then finally when I broke and said it was just a silly thing to believe, I got shit like OH now you're questioning my religion why is it silly blah blah. Like chill.

Then I go to my family's for the holiday's, and it's constant provoking (I will not speak in those conversations, because last time my mom berated me for an hour, and when I answered one question, she screamed and accused me of trying to oppress her faith or whatever) trying to pressure me into looking like an asshole, crying from all sorts of family members thinking I'm going to hell, constantly telling me how disappointing I am and will have no morals and should not have children because they'll be monsters.


Then again, I got regularly beaten if I questioned anything in church, had my first Harry Potter book ripped to shreds for reading it "on the Lord's day". I actually have a really strong connection to Harry Potter because it's helped me escape shit mentally since I was 7. Any time I had a legit question to understand the religion, I was made to feel retarded. I felt stupid, I felt weak, and I was suicidal and depressed and anxious thinking about hell and how god must hate me.

And then I hear at work how oppressing I am to Christians for minding my own business. Fuck that shit.

Sorry to hear about your situation. Although being ostracized as an atheist by Christians doesn't usually pose the same danger as apostates of Islam, it is important for people to remember that atheists are still persecuted in many parts of the U.S. This isn't a problem in more liberal states, but in many parts of the Bible Belt, communities are still very religious and intolerant of those who are not.

Ok, but if in response to a growing amount of Christian terrorism and violence against those who aren't Christian there was a twitter campaign of people speaking out against horrible things done to them or done by Christians, and you post "I'm #exchristianbecause I don't believe in God," it'd be significantly less impactful than explaining your whole story like you did here, dood. That's all I'm trying to say, just claiming you're not religious is fine, and powerful enough when you're standing up against people who will react with extreme violence against people who stand up against them, but it's not as powerful as going in to detail about what will/could/has happened to you as a result of claiming you're not religious.

Coming out as an Atheist as a former Christian or whatever is a lot different to leaving a religion where a significant portion of Muslims believe you should be killed for leaving Islam.

For some people, and in some cultures, it's honestly a huge deal. Canada, for one example, has taken religious refugees in the past in the form of people who wanted to freely practice Atheism; I don't know the statistical information, but I know a family and I doubt they're the only ones.

That being said, I somewhat agree. You could just say #ExReligiousBecause, but on the other hand, part of the power is speaking up to religious authorities that wish to punish dissenters, whatever the reason. Imagine the power that a group of Atheists would have had under the Holy Roman Empire that wasn't Holy, Roman, or an Empire if they banded together like this hint, they would have died . Most Islamic Nations have a lot of cultural progress to make in order to catch up, and honestly part of that will come from the disbandment of their theocracy.

I'm new to the whole being a Christian thing, but I know sure as hell that Church and State should not be mixed. I think it's abhorrent that there are people who don't others to be able to freely practice separate Faiths. If you don't believe that free-thinking and rational people will choose your God through their own personal journey of honest reflection and self-improvement, you do not have enough Faith in your God or the Truth you believe in.

"cultural progress", like every 2nd marriage that goes to shit? or spoiled little 8 year old fucks with iphones, or the best kind: autistic fedora twats with their waifus and ponies and fat disgusting feminists. To be fair the next generation is fucked and thus is my pension

Are you claiming that our society is not more culturally progressed than countries that sentence women to death for being the victims of sexual assault because some kids play with expensive technology?

if you're looking for cultural progress, you won't find it there, why don't you emulate everything apart from that shite?

Please stop quoting voltaire, he wasn't the sole objective truth to the holyness, romanness or empireness of the Holy Roman Empire

The HRE from Voltaire's life was less significant as a state than it had been through it's time, and using the Voltaire quote as a general descriptor for the HRE is quite misleading

The problem is, 'Coming out' as an athiest may not present any problem to you, but in other parts of the world, and even (especially) in the states, that's simply not the case.

So when people make stark contrasting statement's like '#ExMuslimsBecause God's not real', they probably do so with no concept of the fedora/athiest meme for a start, but moreso, to spit in the face of a religion that is abusive and restricting.
A lot of people are bullied into their religions. In the case of Islam, that concept doesn't even need defending, considering this post, but the same is true in christianity. Sure, the majority of christians are level headed people who don't force their opinions on others, but there are plenty of them who would disown them (particularly in the south) for even considering becoming an athiest.

TL;DR it's hardly a big deal to say 'Gods not real kek' in the face of people saying 'if you say god's not real I'll fucking execute you'.

Yes, exactly, people are willing to murder you for leaving the religion, so I think it'd be better if they talked about the consequences they'd face or the attitudes they'd face from other muslims rather than just declaring they're not religious, dood. I know it takes a lot of courage to speak out against Islam in any way, but it just feels to me like it misses the point of the hashtag when people basically write in "I'm ex muslim because I'm ex muslim" rather than something like "I'm ex muslim because people are willing to murder me for claiming to be ex muslim." I'm not saying their reason isn't valid, or the struggles they've faced or will face in the future because of what they say aren't real, but the hashtag is better (to me, at least) when people point out specific reasons that caused them to abandon their faith, or aspects of the religion that flew in the face of their own moral compass, or at least talking about how others would react to their dissent.

Keep in mind that the euphoric fedora wearer stereotype and prejudice about it isn't as common among people who aren't seasoned masters of memes such as ourselves.
