Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Be Tactful When Criticizing Religion

This is more of a list of advice for any atheists or agnostics out there. I'm an atheist and I'll admit I started off pretty douchey when I first joined, so I decided to make a list of reasons why tact should be important if you're gonna criticize a religion.

I'm just saying that if you are going to point out a religion's flaws then you should use as much tact as possible. You also shouldn't come off as an elitist because that's honestly very douchey.

I also wanna state that this list is not meant to offend religious people either. But you can't deny the fact that your religions do have some flaws and we non-religious people just wanna point them out (we're only trying to help you. You're free to believe what you want but know that most of us are in no way persecuting you. We just don't approve of the fallacies that some of you often use. Not all of you, just some).

The Top Ten

1 So that you don't come off as a douchebag

Nobody likes a douchebag so why bother being one? How would you like it if someone acted all douchey around you? - DarkMatter1997

2 You might believe that you only live once so you may as well be as respectful as possible

I'm just saying, do you really wanna be remembered as the jerk nobody ever liked? Especially since you thought your current life was all you had? That's honestly very depressing if you ask me. - DarkMatter1997

3 So that you don't start any fights or arguments

We all know fighting is not the answer so why even fight in the first place? - DarkMatter1997

4 So that you don't encourage the stereotype that non-religious people are rude jerks

No one should encourage stereotypes. Atheists already have a bad stereotype so don't add to it by acting like a jerk. - DarkMatter1997

5 So that you don't come off as an elitist

Elitism is just gonna make you look even more douchey than you already are. - DarkMatter1997

6 So that you don't come off as ignorant

Nobody knows if a God or Gods exist or not. Just stick with what makes you feel comfortable the most and don't use it to justify bad behavior. - DarkMatter1997

7 So that you may be able to have people understand their religions' flaws better

Acting like an elitist jerk isn't going to get anyone to know about the flaws of their religions. If you tried to act a little more nice when pointing those flaws out then maybe they'll understand a bit better and not view you as so jerky. - DarkMatter1997

8 So that you don't force your beliefs onto others

It's not morally right so why even do it? - DarkMatter1997

9 Because you know that people have different opinions

By DNA level we're all different. Not everyone is gonna agree or disagree with you on certain things. - DarkMatter1997

10 So that people won't accuse you of being a satanist

And why would that be a problem?

Awww but I want people to think this - judo8alex

Enough said. - DarkMatter1997
