‘Buddhist’ is just a nicer way of saying ‘atheist’

My wife really dislikes Facebook; even so, she feels compelled to share at least some information about herself. Last night she was filling in a few new interests on her profile when she came to “religion.” “What should I write?” she asked. “‘I love Jesus? Liberal? Agnostic?'” “Why don’t you just tell the truth?” I said. “Write ‘atheist.'”

“That sounds too harsh,” she replied. “I’ll just put down ‘Buddhist’ instead.”
