Have you ever pondered just how delicate modern day atheists are? They are so fragile that they depend on organizations to police communities to ensure atheist safe spaces are created. One champion of Atheist Safe Spaces is the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Apparently, atheists are so easily traumatized by public displays of religiosity that the FFRF has found its niche as defenders of the little flowers. Here’s one recent example:
The University of Florida has been hit with a cease and desist letter from the pro-atheism Freedom From Religion Foundation legal activist organization, which is demanding that a Bible verse etched in its new Heavener Hall be removed.
The complaint letter, addressed to President Dr. Kent Fuchs, protests a short verse inscribed along an arch in the 1-year-old “Collegiate Gothic”-style business school at the Gainesville-based public university.
Adds Seidel: “This inscription demonstrates a school preference for religion over non-religion and for Christianity over all faiths. When a school chooses to display an excerpt from a religious text, it signals to students who hold differing beliefs that they are outsiders, that they are excluded from the campus community.
Are you serious? I went to college as an atheist. And I recall one building which had Bible verses inscribed on it. Did it make me feel like an outsider? Excluded from the campus community? Of course not. How silly is that? My undeveloped critical thinking skills were enough to tell me that inscriptions on a building had little to do with a community of students.
But apparently, today’s young atheists are different. The narrative tells us that atheists are bold, outspoken defenders of science and reason. Yet the evidence indicates they are special snowflakes in need of Safe Spaces.
