Fundamentalists are afraid to use the word Atheist

My Catholic cousin recently kept saying “Secularist scientists” instead of Atheist and I had to correct him because it sounded too weird to equivocate the terms. He had been systematically subsituting atheist with secularist and hesitated and I got the impression that in his mind Atheist is such an evil word, that secularist sounds better.

That’s the future of political correctness. Get used to your new name. All Atheists shall be referred to as secularists by religious people. Maybe when Secularist becomes too evil they will call us Deists again.

This would put him at a loss for words.
