Rate your blog
Following on from Atheist Revolution, many bloggers are keen to see how their blogs are rated in terms of their suitability for children, so I thought I’d see how A Load of Bright came out. As you can see, “some material may be inappropriate for children under 13”. Although that’s not bad, I was a little surprised because aside from allowing the odd profanity in the comments, I like to think I keep it all pretty clean here. Apparently, my
rating was determined based on the presence of the following words
What the ff, er, I mean, goodness me! I suppose context isn’t taken into account. Any parent wanting to see if their children can read my blog on their own will just have their suspicions confirmed: you see? I told you! All those damn atheists talk about is killing, danger and drugs!
Well, all I can say is that, to echo Daylight Atheism, I’d love to see how the Bible rated on these terms – I’m sure nobody would object to their children reading that on their own!
But no, we talk about how people kill in the name of religion every day, how dangerous it is to society and particularly children and how religion encroaches on the freedom of adults committing ‘victimless crimes’, and we’re the ones who shouldn’t be read without parental guidance. Oh, the irony.
