The Atheist Teacher
A young woman teacher explains to her class of children that she
is an atheist. She asks her class if they are atheists too. Not really
knowing what atheism is but wanting to be like their teacher, their
hands explode into the air like fleshy fireworks.
There is, however, one exception. A beautiful girl named Lucy has
not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has
decided to be different.
“Because I’m not an atheist.”
Then, asks the teacher, what are you?
“I’m a Christian.”
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She
asks Lucy why she is a Christian.
“Well, my mom is a Christian, and my dad is a Christian, so
they helped me become a Christian.”
The teacher is now angry. “That’s no reason,” she says loudly.
“What about if your mom was a moron, and your dad was a
moron. What would you be then?”
A pause, and a smile. “Then,” says Lucy, “I’d be an atheist.”
