I am not offended

I can walk down the street without being forced to believe someone else's religion

I don’t have to pray in school, even though the option is there for me

I have the right to free thought and expression

I am not offended

That I can say what I choose, even though others disagree

That the country I live in is free of theocracy

That no one pledges to something they don’t believe in

I am not offended

That Atheist’s can publicly denounce another persons god

That those people can publicly attack the Atheist’s belief as well

That we’re not ALL just robots, set to the same programming

That we have the key to uniqueness

But to get to that key, we must first decode our former programming

And unlock it for our self

I am offended

When a religion calls me a walking sin

When a group publicly hates me for me

When all I’m doing is voicing a counter argument or loving another human being

And they retaliate with force, not of the pen, but of the sword

I am offended
That in 2011 they’re still people whom follow a religion, that will tell you flat out

Those who do not agree, are sinners, and they will burn

That will create bigots, racists, and so called “moralists”

I am not offended

That there Is a religion, built on love and joy

On equality, on tolerance, and humanity

I am offended

That no one has thought of what to call it yet

Not bad. I really enjoyed this. Longer than it's counterpart, but you definitely got your message across.

A comeback to "I am offended"?

Very nice way to put it all. I love this.
