I’m curious about how pervasive Christian language is in the atheist community, as well as attitudes towards religious language. Do you use “God” in your everyday speech? “God bless you?” “God damn it?” “Lord knows?” “Heaven help us?” Anything like that?
If you do use it, are you doing it on purpose to take the power of those words away from Christians, or is it a habit from your theism days? Or is it for some other reason? This little poll is totally unscientific, but I think it might give me some idea of what’s going on in the minds of other non-believers. If you don’t like any of my choices, feel free to leave a comment with your reasoning.
