Viewed in this light, we can see that atheism is simply a form of racism.
This is actually not surprising. Atheists tend to be eugenicists, which is to say, they tend to be racists. Christians do not wish to “breed a race of thoroughbreds”, as Margaret Sanger urged. American Christians may have enslaved blacks, but English Christians, and subsequently American Christians, were also at the forefront of the abolition movement. Catholic Christianity invented the orphanage, the university and largely invented the hospital. Because Christians who live Christian Faith care for the well-being of every man, Christians improve every man. Contrast this to the atheists, who simply write off large segments of humanity as insufficiently well-endowed by genes or circumstance, unworthy of the social resources necessary to maintain them.
For a logically consistent atheist, altruism enables mediocrity. There are people whose best will never even approach adequacy; investing resources into these people is a dead loss from an atheistic economic perspective.

I love how you never point out this alleged racism. According to you, atheists hate all people equally.

Take me back to the Catholic Middle Ages. Those were fun times, and everybody knew his place. It's well known that there was nothing resembling orphanages and hospitals until that time. And every one of those universities established numerous scholarships for the peasants.

All religion is basically racist - in fact all humanity is to a certain extent. It is only through education that we can rid ourselves of the irrational fear of others that on a totally shallow and "skin-deep" level are different from us.
But back to my point - a question to christians: Do you have any Jewish heritage? If no then sorry, you are damned for all eternity. God gave his message of salvation to the Jews.
A question to the Muslims: Do you have arabic heritage? If no then same answer as above but replace Jew with Arab.
It works for all religions except Hinduism - though not the Hindu collective in many cases - as Hindus believe everyone has a valid view point. Even though i do not prescribe to any major world religion I still think that is a decent way to treat people. With respect, and not some of the condescension that I find posted here by anti-religious types.

And the guys who had to say that the blacks were the children of Ham to make their racism acceptable, what the hell are they doing?
