Because you been brainwashed to think altruism is a virtue. It’s not. It’s basis is self-sacrifice for the group, the tribe, the fatherland, the common good, etc.
“It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.” – Ayn Rand

It wasn’t that long ago when fascists, commies, and socialists were the extremists.
I don’t have a problem with atheists, I am one. I admire Ayn Rand more than any one philosopher out there. That doesn’t mean I agree with everything she said. Her base of knowledge starts with the law of identity. She didn’t apply it correctly to the nature of the state, whereas Murray Rothbard did. Governmental authority isn’t legitimate as far as I’m concerned because it’s predicated on the initiation of force. FFRF atheists are all about government force. And while it’s true not every atheist is a commie. The folks at FFRF are. Although they don’t believe in a god, they do believe in the “common good” and I’m left wondering what’s the difference? FFRF typically goes after individuals for trivial BS just to be antagonistic while ignoring the government is stealing from millions to prop up Muslim theocracies, and a Jewish State. How is that not establishing a religion? They’re hacks.

I’m wouldn’t challenge them on their lack of faith, I’d challenge them on their state worship.

We knew they were dishonest thieves, murderers and kidnappers before one of them got caught going after some jailbait.
