Here's my opinion: HYPROCRACY.

Hate to be the Grammar Nazi, I really do, but it`s hypocrisy.

Well if you actually read the article, it says that the intention is that when they get handed out leaflets from the local church, they also get an atheist leaflet. I feel that there is nothing wrong with that. And that they were given to the managers of the school, who could then choose whether or not to give out the leaflets.
Completely misleading title.

Here's my opinion:


If religious information can`t be given out in schools, then information specifically pertaining to lack of religion should also be banned.

I`m not specifically referring to this case, but how society works in general.

Now I'm not fresh on my atheism, but don`t they believe in no life after death and that once you die that`s it?

Usually, but not necessarily. An areligious afterlife is possible.

[quote]If that`s the case, then why try and drag others who are completely happy with their lives into something with no benefits. This isn`t an attack on atheism, I`m just curious why do you do it?[/quote]

Things would probably be better if people cared more about the real world. If this is the only life we all have, it`s a lot more important. If it`s just a brief visit with the real life coming afterwards and dependent on how obedient to are to <insert deity here>, then this life is less important than a brief stop to pee on a long journey.

But most atheists don`t, anyway. This group was offering an alternative to the prevailing coercion, which is pretty much the opposite of what you describe.
