Thou Shalt Steal

I’m not sure exactly what to make of this. An athiest organization put up a sign attacking religious thought, which was then subsequently stolen, presumably by someone who disagreed with the message, and so who was almost certainly religious. Isn’t there some sort of religious rule against stealing. I mean, I know the Bible is big book, but I’m sure I saw that in there some place.

Of course, the sign itself is a little insensitive. One of the lines on there reading, “Religion is but a myth and a superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds”. I’m always trying to come up with ways to promote disbelief in god(s) while still being positive and respectful for other people’s beliefs, but it’s hard to do. Atheism is just a simple negation of single claim, nothing more. It’s hard to be encouraging when speaking against a belief that someone has made the core of their life.
