An article up on Time's website has upset me. A judge in New Jersey denied a couple the right to adopt a child for the fact that they were atheists. She said that the couple would force their child to not believe in a supreme being, and that not giving the child religious freedom would not be an adequate way in which to raise it. I am an atheist, and I'm not shy about it. I am not one to go out looking to argue with people who have religion, although I know there are atheists like that. I've always believed in just letting others believe whatever they want. Who am I to judge?
I thought we were out of the dark ages. It's disgusting that parents can be denied the right to adopt a child due to their religious preference. If the parents were devout Christians, would they have been denied a child because they wouldn't allow it to deny the existence of a supreme being? This prejudice towards atheists needs to end. Believe in whatever you want, just don't encroach upon the rights of others because their beliefs differ. I don't want to sound cliche, but can't we all just get along?
