don’t get it twisted like i respect bugs for being the best they can be in spite of their specific assigned flesh prisons and their ecological significance but they need to stay the fuck away from me
“It’s not easy being an atheist in a theistic world. One time I went to an atheist meeting and there was a guy from Pakistan—big, jovial guy, might have had a Ph.D. in biochemistry—who was an atheist. And as he was talking, I asked him what is it like when he goes back to Pakistan—is he an atheist then? He said, ‘No, no! No, no! I’m a Muslim when I go back to Pakistan.’ I get it, even though I don’t think that America is particularly free. There are certain consequences for being an atheist here as well.
“I’m an African-American, and almost all African-Americans believe in some sort of God—women more so. So, trying to affiliate with an African-American woman and telling her that I’m an atheist is hard. She goes, ‘What is that?’—she doesn’t get it. It’s true even of well-educated women because they were raised in a church. These were people who were enslaved in Africa, brought to the shores of America as slaves, and indoctrinated into the church. So America is not that free, either.”
