Bizler Türkiyeli ateistler olarak dinlerin, insanların geçmiş zamanlardaki doğayı anlama ve anlamlandırma çabası olduğunu ve herhangi bir objektif kanıta dayanmayan bu doğaüstü iddialara şartlanmışlığın aşılması gerektiğini düşünüyoruz.
Dinlere ve diğer doğaüstü kavramlara inanmasak da bizler her bireyin inanç özgürlüğüne saygı duyuyoruz. İnanç özgürlüğüne saygı duymamız onları dinlerinin/inançlarının gereklerinden alıkoyma gibi anti demokratik eylemleri kınadığımız ve bundan kaçındığımız anlamına geliyor. Ancak inanç özgürlüğüne saygı duymak, inançlara koşulsuz saygı göstermek demek değildir. Bu ikisi çoğu kez inançlı insanlar tarafından karıştırılmakta ve "herkesin dinlere saygı duyma şartı" gibi ifade özgürlüğünü engelleyici yöntemlere başvurulmasına sebep olmaktadır.
Dinler birer felsefi düşüncedir ve bizler hiçbir düşünceye koşulsuz saygının dayatılmaması gerektiğine inanıyoruz. Bir başka deyişle dinlerin de diğer düşünceler gibi normale indirgenip tartışılması, sorgulanması gerektiğini düşünüyoruz. Bizler söylemlerimizle insanları değil, düşünceleri hedef alıyoruz çünkü düşüncelerin değil, insanların haklara sahip olduğuna inanıyoruz. Dolayısıyla hiç kimsenin "dini inancıma hakaret edildi, mağdurum" deme hakkının olmadığını düşünüyoruz. Eğer inandığınız şeylerin eleştirilmesinden ve doğru kabul ettiklerinizin sarsılmasından endişe ediyorsanız, ateist içerikli yazı ve medya unsurlarını takip etmeyiniz. Buna herkesin gücü yetmektedir, kimse kimseye zorla bir şey izletmiyor.

Today, Goody’s® Powder partnered with Dale Earnhardt Jr. to surprise a local Charlotte fan with some “Fast Relief.” Kim Homme, a retired 25-year captain of the Charlotte Fire Department and longtime Dale Jr. fan, was treated to a special Goody’s® Fast pit stop experience along with a new set of Goodyear tires for her vehicle.
“Kim has done so much for her community and it’s great to return the favor by providing her with some Goody’s® Fast Relief,” said Earnhardt Jr. “This year’s Appreci88ion Tour has focused on giving back to the fans and thanks to Goody’s®, we were able to take it a step further today.”
Homme had no idea that Dale and the Goody’s® crew were stationed inside the Fire Department. Members of the Charlotte Douglas Airport Fire Station, where she currently works for the Air National Guard as an airport firefighter, were on hand to help celebrate the moment and watch the crew perform the Goody’s® Fast pit stop.
