Tiger Woods and Atheist Umbrage?…I am Still Waiting
FYI: this was originally posted on March 15, 2010 AD on Atheism is Dead (one of True Freethinker’s predecessors) but did not get carried over when we did the original merge.
God forbid that a Christian or a “Christian” commits an immoral act; atheists are all over it and come down on them harder than an elephant in musth.
Set aside for a moment how they define “immoral” or that this may be fair enough.
The immorality of a Christian or a “Christian” is made to speak volumes about the utter bankruptcy of Judeo-Christian morality in general.
Enter Tiger Woods, the guy who became a gazillionaire by hitting a ball with a stick (I do not care if he is the very best in the history of the world at hitting a ball with a stick; he hits a ball with a stick).
I am still waiting for atheists internet-wide, TV-wide, radio-wide, lectern-wide, book-wide, etc.-wide using Tiger Woods and his womanizing, adulterous ways to besmirch Buddhism.
Many atheists fancy themselves equal opportunity faith-bashers but the scales are quite obviously tipped to the point of being broken on the side of besmirchments of Christianity first, Judaism second and miscellaneous a very, very, very, very distant third.
So, will any atheist play fair and besmirch Buddhism due to the doings of Tiger Woods?
Will any atheist start forum discussions on the issue, or start a blog titled “Deconstructing Buddhism” or any such thing?
