I don't want to be rude but you most likely will think I am, what my religion is or if I even have a religion doesn't matter right now. I just wanted to ask you why you tag your posts with #religion. A lot of atheïsts blogs do that and when I subscribed to Tumblr religion was a topic you could subscribe to. Atheïsm is not a religion and it's a bit annoying to constantly get atheïst posts on my dashboard. Why exactly do you tag things with religion, atheïsm is not a religion...?
Ah ok lets break this down. First by saying that you don’t want to be rude you know you in some way are being rude. From this whole thing I just hear some whinny religious person complaining while claiming this is not supposed to be rude. The rude thing about this isn’t how it’s worded but that they think complaining will get them anywhere. I know how people work you aren’t really asking why you are just complaining and want it to stop. I can also ask why I find Christian posts in the atheist tag. It’s not like when we see one we will automatically go praying back to god to forgive our sins. If you’re so butt hurt about this get off the internet. You really want to know whats annoying, people like you. Religious people who think they are privileged. Everyday non believers encounter tons of religious people, posts and other religious things but you don’t see us complaining at everything. We learn to deal and live with it. Scroll past it and carry on with our day. But once somebody religious sees something that makes them question their beliefs or is against them they freak out. We tag atheist posts in religion because it is to make you think. To make you question what you were taught and told to believe. It’s annoying to hear I am wrong and going to hell everyday. It’s annoying to not be able to express my beliefs because of people like you. It’s annoying to see a world brainwashed by the same ideas but never even opening up to the possibility that they are wrong. Even though atheism is not a religion it is under the same topic. When you learn about religion in school you don’t learn about atheism at a different time it’s all together. It’s a general topic. Tags are there to spread the post to the largest audience available so therefore I add the tag #religion. I want people to think even if it’s for a second it still gets them to think.
