Speaking as an atheist, I couldn’t care less whether Oprah apologizes or not...she’s simply showing her ignorance on yet another subject.
But, really. At this point “what difference does it make?”
“shes simply showing her ignorance on yet another subject.”
She got it right. Atheists are narcissists.
In the early days of their movement, the homosexuals generally denied there was any universal effort or intention to convince society to embrace homosexuality as normal and acceptable. The argued that they simply wanted to be able to be left alone to practice a lifestyle that they wished to follow without interference by the heterosexual community. That, of course, turned out to be untrue, as we now see that the ultimate goal was to re-order societal thinking into believing that homosexuality is normal and good.
Now I realize that the atheistic community is no more homogeneous than the homosexual community, but do you believe that, generally speaking, atheists simply want to left alone to believe (or not believe) what they wish without societal interference? Or do you believe that, like the homosexuals, the atheists have a larger agenda and actually want society to do what it must to convince God-fearing members of our community to embrace atheism in the same manner that they embrace theism?
I think many outspoken atheists are leery of the fact that the only true atheism is nihilism. After all, they think that we accidental confluences of chemical actually have some worth, that a person exists.
