I'm an atheist and still respect people of faith
So as the title states, I'm an Atheist.
That doesn't mean that whenever I see a religious person I feel compelled to go right up to them and tell them that GoD's NoT rEaL...
People are entitled to believe what they like, or not believe anything supernatural just like me. All I ask is that no-one forces their religion down my throat if they have one, or wishes me any harm for not being a believer.
Same with gay people. If you like to spend your time with people of the same gender as you that's your own prerogative and I won't criticise/insult/hurt you for doing so, just don't try it on with me personally if you're a gay guy.
