I’m not entirely sure who is credited with this quote, but the site I found it on simply credited it to “Concerned Atheists” which I assume means Atheists in general. Anyway, here it is:
“We’ll stop caring what you believe in…just as soon as what you believe in stops influencing the decisions of those in power, thereby affecting our lives. Negatively, I might add.” – Concerned Atheists
Asking Atheists why they care about religion is a common question from Theists. The answer, as the quote states, is simple. When your religion is pushed on others and continually has a negative effect, Atheists have a problem with that. They are concerned and they won’t sit down quietly. Your make believe god doesn’t control us.
