Atheists, is it apt to describe you as 'opportunists' insofar as you've grabbed the opportunity presented by the modern culture of ?

liberalism to release certain 'inhibitions' that previous cultures frowned upon?

    I would describe myself (not all Atheists) as one who takes responsibility for their lives and one who is quite content, even happy, in that life.

    It's an interesting question, but doesn't it presuppose that there has been no previous period in history in which believers didn't behave badly? Europe's aristocrats gave lip service to Christianity but did what they  wanted in private or in clubs. Charles II's court was very licentious, as was Louis XIV's. You might be objecting to the greater degree of freedom ordinary people have now, but that's not really fair, is it?

    If you are really asking, do we like the modern freedom from religious persecution? Yes, it is apt.

    How difficult is it to understand that all atheism is is the rejection of god claims.

    This can be for various reasons, the best of which (IMHO) being that there is no good evidence for the existence of gods.

    Was Reverend Jimmy Swaggart a liberalist when he hired a prostitute?  Are released inhibitions only from liberals?
