Two World Voices

Mine is the one true path.
I’m a true believer, programmed by faith.
I’m committed to my Lord and my religion.
My faith promotes myth, patriarchy, terrorism, and genocide.
I can love and support those approved by my faith community.
I have no responsibility for my previous sins – they are forgiven.
Do I fear social rejection? Yes – I seek and welcome attention.
I‘ve found social acceptance and the promise of another life.
I feel free.

Mine is the one true path.
I’m a freethinker, atheist, agnostic, apatheist, apostate, or infidel.
I’m committed to evidence-based truth.
My nonfaith promotes reason, wisdom, tolerance, and understanding.
I can love and support all of humanity.
I take responsibility for my actions, and must help or heal those whom I’ve hurt.
Do I fear social rejection? No – I seek and welcome solitude.
I’ve found transcendence and fulfillment in this, my only life.
I am free.
