JAKEBENSON saidComing from an ORTHODOX RABBI this is far more accepting towards homosexuality than the Muslim or Christian equivalent.
I wonder how an orthodox atheist feels about this.
Atheism is defined as having a lack of religious beliefs, therefore it is:
A. Not a religion and therefore is irrelevant to the comparison
B. Does no vary in intensity (i.e. reform, conservative, orthodox) as the definition itself is the disbelief in a god
C. An oxymoron to use the words "orthodox" and "atheist" together
D. Barbara Streisand
E. All of the above
The correct answer is E.
Here's an analogy. That's like me saying, "Well a gregarious Canadian is more entertaining than a gregarious Icelander," and then you say, "I wonder how a gregarious misanthrope feels about this?" A misanthrope by definition is a person who hates mankind, which automatically discredits the word "gregarious" since that means outgoing and fond of company. A misanthrope may be more entertaining, but it cannot compare to the Canadian or Icelander because they have been qualified by the term "gregarious" which does not exist with a misanthrope. Going back to your point, an "Orthodox atheist" does not exist beyond theory, although an atheist is likely more pro-gay than most conservative religions.
Of course you can be captious and counter-argue that a definition of orthodox means adhering to an ideology, which atheism is one of. But really? How many atheists do you know that claim to be "orthodox atheist." That's right bitch Jake Benson is right. None.
