So who's really intolerant, Mary?
I read with amazement the opinion piece 'Atheist bus more like a bandwagon on highway to hell'. (Irish Independent, November 24).
Mary Kenny condemns atheists for simplistic arguments which mainly rely on personal abuse against Christians. Yet in this one short article, she proceeds to describe atheists as cold, immoral, deeply unpleasant, intolerant and directly responsible for almost every calamity to have befallen this nation over the past 25 years, short of the current recession.
I myself am an atheist, having spent most of my life as an active Christian. I try to live as moral a life as I can and I do not need the promise of eternal reward or the threat of eternal damnation to do so.
