Believers are not "trapped mind" to be liberated, trapped souls with no guidance, ignorant humans with no knowledge, "closed minds" sinking in the ocean of the dark ages, or simply were born believers and don't know better...
Most of the modern day believers are people who choose to believe.
Denying people this choice, is the epitome of tyranny. Ridiculing THEM because of it, is as bad as any other form of racism and the complete opposite of all modern liberties
Only person who would find denouncing God "liberating" is a person who is trying to break from the confines of morals guidelines, and ethical rules that come with religion. Don't mean to disrespect anyone. But if this is the only way an adulterous can live with himself. Or a liar can learn to tolerate himself. Then trust me. You don't know how forgiving God is.
Perhaps you're gay, and you find no place for you in any faith. Could it also be liberating for you to denounce god just to "embrace" your sexual preference/choice/whatever you wanna call it? For many it might be. But the truth is, to sin is HUMAN, and very natural. We sin ALL THE TIME. Denouncing our God doesn't make us any better. Doesn't make the sin go away either. Some people choose to continue their favorite sin. All while knowing exactly what they chose
"And why seek forgiveness, I'm free, I don't believe"... Ahhh, but we're not free. We never are. If we escape the religious rules, we have the social and ethical ones. If we escape those, there rules of nature that no one free himself from...
This universe is governed by rules, we can't exist without them. The more rules you follow, the more civilized, some would argue.
Sure etiquette is mostly optional, although it's encouraged. If you look at it, it's a set of rules on top of rules.
I don't want to start sounding like Dawkins and box every Atheist into this definition. But if you find yourself in this box, then you're departing from your inner belief, to absolutely worse position. It's like running from the police to escape a $5 fine.
Look at yourself, reflect upon it. Ask the WHY questions, instead of the HOW. Even though most of these "HOW" questions have not been explained satisfactorily yet. But I am confident that eventually they will.
WHY did the universe get created?
WHY did life spark?
To feel liberated, means that someone was burdened by the morality of their choices. Therefore, deep inside, they are still believers. Even if they think they have been liberated!
