Catherine Deveny in the SMH: Atheism is a broad church

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The word ''militant'' has become synonymous with atheist. Militant is simply a word used to describe someone showing opposition in a way the people being opposed don't like.

And yes, atheists have killed, tortured, lied and stolen - never in the name of atheism, but because they're bad.

Jews, Muslims, Christians and atheists are generally moral people. But that's not because they're Jews, Muslims, Christians or atheist. It's because they're people.

I do hate. I hate religion taking credit for most people's innate goodness.

Read it all.
