Accepting Atheists Is Loving God - Poem by Gregory Allen Uhan

Atheists were not
Created to be converted
Persecuted alienated or pitied

The atheist who stays true
To their own personal beliefs
And is not swayed by
The arguments of another
Is servicing God by
Staying true to oneself

There are atheists who
Love thy neighbor
Not because she/he fears
The punishment of God
But because he/she
Feels this to be just and true

And There are people of religion
Who hold judgment over others
Persecuting out of prejudice in the name of God

When we force belief upon another
We infringe upon God given freewill

    A thoughtful philosophical read, this was a beautiful analysis of the merits and important of atheism within the panoply of belief systems within the human psyche. Being agnostic I can be accused of sitting on the fence and not taken a side in the merits of theology, but this is a wonderful and considerate write for those who have no belief, but are believers in the good of humanity. Its true that an atheist can be more considerate then a person who does believe, when they are only considerate for the fear of retribution. A great message thank you for writing this (Report) Reply
