Do Atheist, Agnostics Hate Religion?

Updated on February 19, 2015

The Church

I was born and raised a Catholic. I can see why some people get turned off to churches. First of all I think we go to church to please and worship God, and for no other reason. I personally believe in the bible and John chapter 6.The part about the Body and Blood of Christ. Jesus told us we have no life without him. According to Jesus this is not symbolic, but is to be taken literally. In all 4 of the Last Supper accounts Jesus tells us "this is my body" and "this is my blood".That being said,then Atheist, and Agnostics, do not believe in the bible. I don't think they hate religion just the people that have no respect for them.

If you don't believe in the Bible than you will not understand John chapter 6.That's one reason why I think Atheist and Agnostics do like religion.

Agnostic is a person who I believe are people who have no knowledge of anything metaphysical. like angels, spirits, or that God exist. We must remember that all agnostic people are not atheist. According to the Catholic Church theistic agnostic fidest believe in God, but do not believe their understanding of God is knowable by natural means.

Atheist I think they have a belief system that there is no God.

I think the greatest thing I can do as a Christian is try to respect the Atheist and the Agnostic and hope they can do the same for me. There is a difference between the atheist and the new atheist, From what I have read the New Atheist consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. This I do not agree with at all.

The main thing we need to remember is God made all humans. If you are a Christian you must respect everyone and that includes the Atheist and the Agnostic.

I could have been an Atheist or a Christian. My mother was a Catholic and my father told me there is no God and when you die, you are dead that is it period.

Christians Believe

I can't really tell you why Atheist hate religion. I can only tell you why I am a Christian, and hope this will make some sense to you. My life works with Christ, its very simple. It does not work any other way. I tried other things they don't work and I was never happy. I get a lot of," if it works for you that's FINE". I do not want it to be fine, I want you to be happy, less stressed, kinder, and at peace and fine. If your life does not work try something different. You are responsible for your life and your happiness. I know 2 people right now that are miserable but will not accept God or church. They both claim to hate religion. Its not that they hate me its just that they dislike that I have a religion. I think If I were them I would try something different and see if anything changed.

No person can answer the question why Atheist and Agnostics hate religion.I would have to be an Atheist to answer that question, That's like asking me a short person how it feels to be short, It feels great I don't know anything else. I think these people were raised Agnostic or Atheist and it just continued on. This maybe why some don't like religion, you only know what you come from and were taught by your parents. Unless you alone decide to change the tradition.

What The Church Teaches

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, promulgated by Pope John Paul II, states that Atheism: The denial in theory and/ or practice that God exists. Atheism is a sin against the virtue of religion required by the first commandment of the law (2124-2125).

Atheism covers many different phenomena. One of the forms is practical materialism, another is Atheistic humanism falsely considers man to be an end to himself with supreme control, of his own history. Another form of atheism looks for liberation of man though economic and social liberation. This is another reason why they can't believe in religion. It would discourage them from working for a better form of life on earth. To the Atheist religion deceives him by hope in a future life. As for me I love the belief of an afterlife. I have a great nearness to God that can only be experienced, not explained in any words. I personally knew that Jesus existed when I was 11 years old. I believe that our life is a struggle that is constantly a choice between good or evil, and right and wrong. We decide and in today's world this is very hard. I need my faith to constantly remind me to make the right decisions and choices in my life. I like keeping my eyes focused on Jesus I make a lot less mistakes. In order to have a conscience I think we all need to believe in a greater power and religion. We are capable of great missions or great wickedness. We all have our own human weakness, and I need Jesus to stay on the right place I am supposed to be at. What does an Atheist do if one of their children had a life threatening illness? I always have my hope.

    This was interesting to read, thank you for writing on such an intriguing subject. I feel that religion aside, we must respect each other for who we really are inside. I have known some very nice atheists and some very abhorrent religious people and the opposite as well. As with everything, there are no rules set in stone. I guess my takehome message is that I believe it's good practice to avoid trying to judge people based on religion alone.

    In response to Justin Erick you are so right about how people use religion, just like a a person would a tool say a drill to put a needed hole in wood. There may be nothing wrong with the tool it itself, they may be nothing wrong with the idea of what you need to do , but what might be wrong is the subject or object you are drilling may not be appropriate for the tool , and the outcome is not guaranteed success.

    The point is true many know we are not here on earth hap Hazzard, do as you please, even if you want to go to the extreme, even the law of Government pre vents this kind of thinking with judicial consequences.

    But there is a higher Judicial court that people do not want to acknowledge , the original laws here on earth is made off of these laws,

    As examples, to kill, to steal, to lie, or purger, most of these laws protect other humans from those that would violate these important laws.

    We benefit from law and order , now

    when it comes to religion many have tainted the purity of the subject and purpose. Like gold ,but is it the same when mixed with another metal like silver, the value changes, and so do the truth of the matter with being the true followers of Jesus.

    A true Christian would not be so quickly to condemn another about his choices because the bible law was created by the heavenly Father. Which simply means we all in some area fall short of carrying out his law in a perfect since.

    we are to examine ourselves , use the scriptures to improve our relationship with the heavenly Father.

    Because no one can return your life force back to you , to keep you living , but the one who gave it to you from the beginning of your birth.

    Silence on his part has allowed people to live and make the choices with out his interference for many generations, but it does not mean that is the last result of any actions made by us , Jesus now station in the heavens are taking note of those that respect moral laws, because these will be new citizens of a new earth.

    you can always make your choice to live and do as you , but how we use our gift of life is being noted.

    pstraubie48, I agree with you that we can each have our own opinion and still respect each other. There are people that just plain can set a bad example. They can call themselves Christians and make others wonder. I once found a lot of food missing each day when I came home from work. At first I didn't think too much because I knew the boys loved eating after school before supper. One day I followed in the barn and found this 18 year old boy that my son had been feeding for a week. He was given a release paper from the boys school and had nowhere to go. He had no family no nothing. I had a young daughter at home at the time. My daughter was 16 and very pretty and I was not blind to see how he would look at her. I asked the surrounding churches if they could help him they all said No. I asked the school he came from if they could take him back, and was told they could not because of his age. I kept him for a while and told him to consider the Army. He turned out fine, but no thanks to the church.

    I believe in Jesus and that he died for my sins. I believe God made us all Atheist, Agnostic,gays, and all colors to be respected and have their own opinion. Thanks for the comment and stopping by. God Bless, Stella

    Interesting thoughts, Stella. It is important to assess our beliefs even those of someone who does not share our own.

    I have some friends who are agnostic and some who are atheists. I have never gotten the sense that they 'hate' Christians. We have deep philosophical discussions and agree to disagree.

    God is the way the truth and the Light...that is my belief as a Christian. That makes me blessed but ....I believe too that God gives us free will...and sometimes individuals must travel many roads to God. Some it takes longer than others. Does that make sense?

    To me those who do not embrace Christianity because they see those who carry the mantle of God and live a life that is contrary to what anyone would want. For example...I worked with a young man who was extremely active in his church and professed to be a Christian. But he was so filled with anger....he would explode if things did not go his way almost at the drop of a hat and in the next sentence be talking about God.

    For those who dido not know God the feeling would be: "If that is what being about God and Christianity, I want none of that."

    And if those who are agnostic and atheist watch some of the shows on TV of those who are leaders of churches and see how they live it too probably brings into question whether this is something they wish to embrace.

    All I can add is that being Christian (for me) is a personal relationship with God. How I relate to Him and feel Him in my life is not up for judgment by someone else. Judging is between individuals and God.

    Like you, Stella, I have only expressed some of my thoughts, some of my opinions. '

    I do not think either of us is 'correct' or 'incorrect'....only God knows what is in our hearts and that to me seems to be the full of measure of living as a Christian.

    The choice to be agnostic or atheist is one that I could not choose because I know of God's love. I know how it feels and that is reason enough for me..

    Sending Angels and blessings your way this morning. ps

    Hi Stella, I personally don't believe in God or Satan, so religion plays no role in my life. However, I know a lot of smart people, including my wife, who do believe and who do practice their religion seriously.

    I respect the religious beliefs and practices of others, don't mind sitting through a prayer at a public gathering, regret the controversy over manger scenes on government property, and believe they should put God back in the schools.

    Many more believe than don't, so there must be something to it, though I've never seen or felt it. I'm 68, have lived an honest life, worked hard, been helpful and generous with my time and resources, and believe that, if there is a God and a heaven, I should have no trouble getting in despite the fact that I'm not a worshiper.

    I think that, among atheists, just as in any group, there are radicals who are actively hateful, but I don't believe the majority of atheists or agnostics fall into that category. We just quietly choose to stay at a respectful distance. Interesting hub and comment stream. Voted up and interesting.

    Justin thanks for some more thoughts on how you feel. I can only tell you how religion is for me. As for being moral, the religion helps me to stay connected to God. This is my choice the same as you chose not to believe in religion. As for gays I have no problem in respecting them and their rights just as my own.

    I believe in Science and it should be taught in school. As for Mary out of the bible " Hail, Full OF Grace The Lord Is With You!" Luke 1:28 "Blessed Are you Among Women, And Blessed Is The Fruit Of Your Womb Luke 1:42 Jesus.Holy Mary, "You have found favor with God" Luke 1:30, `'MOTHER OF God Pray for Us Sinners Now and At The Hour Of Our Death. Amen No religion, person, or group are perfect. God made us all and I believe you and I both have the same rights and to pursue are own happiness. Stella

    The problem with religion is that for there to be all of the good believers who exemplify the positive aspects of religion, we are forced to deal with the fundamentalist extremists who take their books literally.

    Believers can't just pray at home (like Jesus instructed), they feel compelled to force their religion onto everyone else. From bigotry directed at gays, to oppression of women and slut-shaming, to teaching religion in science classes. Christians think that they must force their religion onto everyone, or else god will forsake our nation. Sodom, the flood, the Canaanites, Jericho - the bible says over and over that a nation (even mankind) will fall if its law aren't in line with the scriptures. Sharia.

    Unfortunately, most believers don't know what the bible says, they only hear what the preacher says on Sundays, and simply ignore the contradictions and ugliness.

    Matthew 10:34-36 Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man's foes will be those of his own household.

    Riddle me this - in Genesis 1:27 god created man and woman in his own image, yes? This was the sixth day, and it was good, yes? Rest on the seventh day. Adam names the creatures. Then he is suddenly alone so god takes his rib in Genesis 2:22? What happened? God created man and woman, and it was good. Then suddenly Adam didn't have a suitable partner? What happened to the woman created on day six?

    Why is it that only two of the gospels features a virgin birth? Wasn't this only the most important detail of all? And they just forgot (Mark, John)?

    Why do each of the gospels have differing accounts of whom discovered Jesus' empty tomb? That's not simple omission or behavioral discrepancy, that's blatant contradiction of supposed historical facts and events. How can that be divinely inspired?

    If it wasn't bad enough that followers of the Abrahamic religions all crave and yearn for the day of Armageddon...

    Perhaps the most insidious aspect is how religion tells people like slaves, prisoners, the poor, (wives,) and the down-trodden that it is holy to bow your head and be submissive. That you will be rewarded in some other lifetime. That the oppressors, slave-holders, evil-doers and tyrants will eventually be punished. Just not in this lifetime. Not when it can actually make a difference. They will be punished eventually. But for not praying to the correct sky god in the correct manner. Why would a supreme being care how mere humans pray, or what we do with our time and bodies? Why are the ten commandments largely about god being jealous (omitting things like rape and child-molestation, btw)? Why do believers infantilize their supposed creator so? Because we created god in our own jealous and flawed image. So powerful men can control other people. Religion is for people who are afraid of what happens when we die. And people who have no morals, and need a book to show them. Non-belief is a luxury. And it's sad to see people punish themselves throughout their entire lifetimes, simply in the hopes that there will be another. Another, btw, where half of your family won't be, and all you get to do is bow and worship for eternity.

    These people draw near to me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And in vain they worship me, teaching as doctrine the commandments of men. Mat 15:8

    Part of the problem is that people think they have to force their religion onto other people, or else god will forsake our entire nation. From Sodom to the Canaanites and the great flood, this is a common theme. Pushing religion, for lots of folks, means oppressing gays, oppressing women and slut-shaming, and teaching religion in science class. Unfortunately, most Christians have no idea what the bible actually says, or simply ignore contradictions and distasteful aspects.

    For instance - Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man's foes will be those of his own household. Matthew 10:34-36

    This is a small thing. But why do only two gospels bother to mention the virgin birth? Seems like a pretty important detail, did they simply forget about that part? The most important detail of all? Hmm. Why does each of the four gospels have a different account of whom discovered Jesus' empty tomb? How can it be divinely inspired if it's blatantly contradictory? Riddle me this - god created man and woman in Genesis 1:27, yes? So how is it that after Adam names all the beasts of the land, he suddenly finds without a suitable partner? God takes Adam's rib and makes Eve in Genesis 2:20-23, so what happened to the woman that god created on the 6th day? How was Adam alone when man was created at the same time as woman?

    From the very beginning, the bible makes no sense at all. And then of course, the main thrust of the creation story is that seeking knowledge is evil. Of course it is, when you want blind sheep wandering about on faith, doing whatever flawed men of the church tell them to, for their own selfish means.

    Christianity is insidious. It teaches slaves, prisoners, (wives,) anyone who is down-trodden, to simply sit back and accept it. That their rewards will be in heaven, that it is holy to embrace abuse. And the slave-holders and tyrants? Don't worry about them, never stand up to them, because god will punish them later on. Sit down, shut up, and take it - because Jesus.

    Since none of us has died before, we don't know what happens. Fear of death is what pushes people toward religion.

    Oh, and people who have no morals, and need a book to tell them what some mythical sky god thinks is moral. Funny that, since there's nothing about rape or child molestation in the ten commandments. Most of them are about god being jealous, because we created god in our own image. Why people infantilize their supreme being, and act like they would care about what mere humans do with their bodies or time, or how or if they talk to themselves (pray), is beyond me.

    These people draw near to me with their mouths, and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And in vain they worship me, teaching as doctrine the commandments of men. - Matthew 15:8,9

We have many highly educated people in the church, several who are scientist and engineers, many doctors, and lawyers. This is what make up the majority in the church. They are highly educated.

    I'm not a Catholic but I'm a Christian. I believe in the teachings of the bible. I believe that there is an Almighty God, his son which is Jesus Christ and I also believe in the Holy Spirit. I seldom encounter atheists. Most of the atheists I know came from the city. Ever since I moved in the province, I haven't encounter an atheist or non-believer. Just like you, I respect those non-believers. Maybe one day they would appreciate the teachings of the bible and the wonderful works of God.

    First of all agnosticism in the sense that you're not sure, doesn't actually exist. Agnosticism is not the lack of belief or the belief in anything, it doesn't take a side nor does it ground in belief or disbelief. You are essentially just questioning whether there is a god or not and you either believe in a god and are open to the idea there is in fact not one, or you essentially are an atheist but are still open to the idea of a god. Most Atheists are considered agnostics too, it's being skeptical and questioning the world around you, it isn't a separate thing like atheism and Christianity for example. It essentially just all lies in where you see the evidence and which direction the "evidence" or "proof" in your eyes points you.

    Next you can't group all atheist into one group just like you can't put all theists into one group and say they hate science. Everybody has their own ideas and opinions about the world and how it works. Not all atheists hate religion, many do, for example the amazing atheist of youtube, seems to very much hate religion and believes all of it should be destroyed in a sense, maybe not to that extreme, but it's fair enough to say that he believes that religion is primitive. Many other atheist agree with that line of thinking but then there are many like myself who are open to the ideas of religion, yes i believe it holds us back, but I can't be 100% certain there is no God and I am skeptical as to it's existence or lack there of.

    Now as an atheist what do I hate? Hypocrites, Christianity particularly, and any other religion that basically screams untrue and false (at least through their holy book) The bible has so many inconsistencies, contradictions, and hypocrisy, that it confuses me that people can still believe it, let alone the fact there are so many different denominations of Christianity. It creates a lack of constancy that should essentially prove it is false, or at least their holy book is false, but people still somehow believe it through thick and thin and it makes me hate Christianity, and there are people that share the same thoughts and feelings as me. It just isn't fair to straw man atheists into saying they hate religion, because we all don't, some do but then there are some that are open minded but hate specifics about religions, or a specific religion. I even hate Islam and Judaism, so the hate is shared amongst them but i do have a specific hate for Christianity.

    In general this can only be answered by each individual, because hate is a very strong word, no one should hate anyone because of their beliefs, even on HP we express our own positions of our faith, but hoping not to offend no one, we do. Christians would not be a true follower of Jesus if they practice hate of another human.

    As he makes this very clear at

    Reference Bible

    1Jo 4:20 If anyone makes the statement: “I love God,” and yet is hating his brother, he is a liar. For he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot be loving God, whom he has not seen.

    Truth is written.

    You have no idea what you are talking about. How in the world would the catholic church know anything at all about what atheists think? Completely nonsensical. New atheists? What you are describing is an antitheist. And yes, antitheists hate religion. Not because religion itself is bad, but because many religious people are the most abhorrent people in the world, and use religion for their own selfish means. People who want to suppress the rights of women and gays in the name of their imaginary sky god. Who want to teach mythical nonsense in schools rather than science, purposely churning out uneducated and ignorant society. Want to fight and kill people from other religions. And worst of all, want Jesus to come and torch entire the planet, killing all non-believers, so that Christians can have earth all to themselves and call it New Jerusalem. Revelations. Look it up.

    Want to know what happens when xtians are in charge? Look at the Dark Ages, the Crusades, the Inquisition, witch trials...
