100% Proud Atheist/Skeptic

Senior Counsel Torquil Paterson told the JSC: "I left the church for a variety of reasons, chief among them being that I realised God does not exist. I am an atheist."


Isn't this great?!

Wonderful. Just hope it doesn't in any way count against him.

What counts against him is that he is white, the (black) candidate after him also proclaimed himself an atheist. What I found fascinating is the questioning that followed: being an atheist wasnt enough, is he a Marxist, materialist what? They needed to label him and had difficulty to do so due to his atheism. Atheism is apparantly not a justifiable label in this country.  Tongue
