Just Say No

As an atheist I am still accosted by those, even people I know who are aware I am an atheist, with religious claptrap, meaning, they’re attempting to convert me. Or maybe deconvert me. I remember several years ago a few friends trying to have an “intervention” for me as though atheism was some sort of cult. I laughed about that for a while. I always tell them that religion is their drug of choice because it makes them feel better about their miserable lives. And just like a drug addict, their addiction may cause real harm to others, which they won’t care about as long as they receive their fix. So, I tell atheists, when approached by these people to do what Nancy Reagan told young people to do about taking drugs.
