I'm not niave and, am, therefore, fully aware that one brief e-mail is unlikely to stand out among several. However, if this one does, would you please consider something?
Au contraire ... communication is more powerful with an economy of words.
Consider that regardless of the existence (or lack thereof) of the God you argue against, love is real. People who find love and comfort in believing in God have just as much right to do so as people who find comfort in things that they can see.
You can love anything you like. Some people love a mystical god with which they can never communicate but who supposedly brings only good things to a world full of bad things. Some people love shoes -- they collect them, adore them, wear them, and put them on display in their own homes. Some people love food and dedicate themselves to watching every possible food show, read every possible food blog and eat in every possible restaurant they can. Some people love their pets, some their cars, some their children, some their work, some love golf .... you can love whatever you like, whatever "love" means to you.
However, as you can tell from my recounting of examples of "love", this nebulous feeling you have is not necessarily shared across all people all the time, and people who "love" certain things have to realize that the rest of us may not give a crap about the thing that they "love". Ergo, you should keep your "love" to yourself and not assume you can spread it everywhere. Given that circumstance, as far as I am concerned, you can "love" your shoestrings if that's what makes you happy. If loving your god makes you happy, so be it! Just don't presume that I will "love" your god or whatever you think your god does for this world. I don't. I won't. I can't. I will love whatever I love. Fair enough?
I won't deny that many acclaimed God-fearing people use their beliefs in a negative way to judge and bring down people they feel are different from them. Don't let yourself fall into this trap as well.
If it weren't for Christians, primarily, though certainly not exclusively, trying to force upon the rest of us their love of the "good book", the "good news" and a bunch of other gobbledygook, I wouldn't be here recounting the idiotic ways that people are subsumed into the world of religion and follow its commonly primary requirement to proselytize others who don't share the love, and moreover, require that the rest of us follow their religious regulations as part of our legal system.
So, while you do recognize that "many acclaimed God-fearing people use their beliefs in a negative way to judge and bring down people they feel are different from them", please recognize that we didn't start this fight but we must defend ourselves. What is nice about the internet is that we didn't seek to proselytize you -- no knocks on your door, no flyers on your windshield, no mail in your box advertising our sight -- but you came to us of your own "free will".
Furthermore, I do not feel that in defense of myself and my lack of belief (or "love" of your god, if you will) that I "bring down others". I normally point out the inconsistencies of logic and the lack of inquisitive behaviors displayed by others who claim to be a disciple of their god(s). Those with belief freely, and quite often, put their shortcomings on display for the world to see and review. They often require no additional commentary by non-believers, except that those who are believers do not consider themselves of the same mental capacity (or lack thereof) as those who commit stupid acts all day long.
Sometimes pointing out these inconsistencies and incapacities is a form of "tough love".
I will leave you with the same plea that I give to Christians who seem to only know judgment:
Sure, it makes people around you happier, but you'll also ultimately benefit yourself.
I appreciate the time you took to read this e-mail.
Have a beautiful day.
Exactly how do you spread "love"? Is it a metaphor for "spreading seed"? Is it paying for another customer's coffee at Starbucks in the mornings? Is it telling somebody "I love you" during the day? Is it just being nice to others? Can educating people about the realities of the world in which they live be a form of love?
Actions speak louder than words, and "love" is just a word.
