Letter to the Editor: SANE students made condescending acronym

source link Based on four years of careful observation, I feel it’s safe to conclude there are two accepted acronyms for Northeastern University:’ NEU and NU. They’re official. In fact, the administration itself toggles between them regularly, as anyone may know who has taken a moment to ponder the discrepancy between our university apparel and the web address of our online student ‘portal.’ source site Two options. Thanks, Northeastern. Despite the occasional confusion this split identity has caused for incoming freshmen and the handful of high school teachers who expressed confidence in my bright future at Northwestern University, that was generous of you. http://woldswaylavender.co.uk/?antaliiste=%D8%A7%D9%81%D8%B6%D9%84-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D9%81%D9%8A-%D8%B3%D9%88%D9%82-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%87%D9%85&0c8=c6 Yet neither of these options sufficed for the Student Atheists of Northeastern ‘- or should I use their presumptuous, condescending acronym:’ SANE. http://asect.org.uk/?ilyminaciya=%D9%83%D9%8A%D9%81-%D8%A7%D8%A8%D9%8A%D8%B9-%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%87%D9%85-%D8%A8%D9%86%D9%83-%D9%88%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%87&7a5=78 Heads up:’ We don’t go to North Eastern, guys. Perhaps if you were members of the Facebook group ‘Stingrays are NOT evil,’ this would fly. But you aren’t. And while I would typically congratulate a clever creative liberty, you’ve stretched the rules to meet ends of intolerance and insult. By declaring yourselves SANE, the intimation is clear:’ All students and faculty who believe in God, or a handful of gods, are illogical, unreasonable and, for lack of a better term, nuts. source Don’t pull out your skeptic soapbox too quickly. You’d be preaching to the atheist choir on this one. Proudly subscribing to non-belief since, like, 1998. I’m simply not willing to pigeonhole an entire complex community of faith-having students and faculty, then belittle them, because we’re not drinking the same holy Kool-Aid. go to site I can almost prophetically guess the rebuttals here:’ Religious zealots try to impose their beliefs on innocent bystanders, depriving women the right to abortions, depriving homosexuals the right to marry and killing in the name of an abstraction. http://skylarkstudios.co.uk/?pomulyyko=%D8%B7%D8%B1%D9%8A%D9%82%D8%A9-%D8%B4%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A1-%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%87%D9%85-%D8%AF%D9%88&38d=f1 That’s insane, yes. Totally reprehensible acts of human injustice, intolerance and ignorance. الفوركس أدميرال But it’s counterintuitive and, frankly, actually insane to suggest that everyone who believes in God believes in these forms of inequality and intolerance. It’s not a two-for-one subscription, by a longshot. Nor do they all subscribe to the dogmas that propel such acts of intolerance. http://craigpauldesign.co.uk/?izi=%D8%AA%D9%88%D9%82%D8%B9%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D8%A8%D9%8A%D8%B9-%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%87%D9%85-%D9%85%D8%AC%D9%85%D9%88%D8%B9%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AD%D9%83%D9%8A%D8%B1&bcf=e2 And if your pedestal is predicated on the notion that simply believing in God is a form of insanity, it might be worth turning the mirror on yourself and asking, ‘Why do I care to disparage the beliefs of another person if I’m truly confident in my own?’ see Religious institutions have had a tough couple of years, and deservedly so. Members of the Catholic church, for instance, were culprits of perpetuating an overwhelming string of sexual abuses, and those who didn’t directly exploit the faith and vulnerability of others were guilty of absolving the priests who did, sending them off to other churches simply to keep up appearances. That will surely put them in question with the God they believe exists. And radical interpreters of Islam have constructed a horrifying network of terrorists apparently capable of any act of violence, no matter how gruesome. أكاديمية الفوركس But people of real faith might argue religion was arbitrary in both those instances. A concept grossly distorted and misrepresented by people with an agenda; people who would have used any means necessary to achieve their ends. Who knows the answers? I don’t, and I’m certainly not letting religious fanatics off the hook for the times they’ve destructively imposed their beliefs on others for the sake of depriving rights or even life. But, in your own tacky, tiny way, SANE, you’re also promoting a backward agenda as intolerant as the notion that all atheists are heathens.
Then again, I’ve never been the sort of atheist who needs to join a club to talk about something I don’t think is real.
