Red Pill Religion, formerly known as the Escaping Atheism Project, is an anti-atheist propaganda blog which, in a manner very similar to that of MGTOW and the "mens'[, is obsessed with references to the red/blue pill from the popular film The Matrix. Also like the MRM and MGTOW, it is largely driven by fear and anger at the loss of ] rights" movementprivilege — in this case, religious privilege. Indeed, as its name implies, it also touches on the alleged "evils" of feminism, and also appears to hold the popular MRA belief about "a woman's place".
The site was founded by Dean Esmay (1966–), (also known by his pseudonym, Max Kolbe),[note 1] who was also a co-founder of the MRA podcast Honeybadger Brigade, and former editor of Paul Elam's website, A Voice For Men. Esmay also claims to have previously been an atheist. However, like most so-called "ex-atheists", his definition of "atheism" does not exactly appear to be well-grounded. Esmay also has a peculiar view of the meaning of "'Little-o' orthodox Christian":
In 2019, Dean Esmay resigned as President of Red Pill Religion.
Similarities to the Freedom From Atheism Foundation
This site is also very similar to the FFAF. In fact, one of their pages suggests that they are actually affiliated with the Facebook hate-group:
“”One of our favorite outfits on the Internet is the Freedom From Atheism Foundation. We happen to know some of the principals behind it...
|—RPR, in their typographical excellence|
Here are some of the parallels that RPR has with FFAF:
- The never-ending assertion that atheism is somehow responsible for (or at least inextricably linked with) the atrocities of communist regimes and Nazi Germany. They also believe that you either buy into the claim that Hitler was an atheist and committed every last one of his atrocities in the name of atheism, or you believe "anti-Christian hate propaganda", because of course they do.
- Like FFAF's facebook page, they also have a series of repetitive, heavily-strawmanned and hilariously unoriginal 'memes and [ ] funnies' that consist primarily of assorted bigotry directed at atheists, and clearly demonstrate a dreadful lack of understanding of what atheism even is.
- Furthermore, it is worth noting that in their actual page on the matter, RPR
falselyclaims that the folks behind the FFAF have received the likes of "death threats" and "character assassination" (citation fucking needed).
Gettin’ chummy with Conservapedia
surprisingly unsurprisingly, Red Pill Religion is a big fan of Conservapedia, especially its totally not in the least bit biased atheism-related articles. They even proclaim them as the "best source for scientific info on Atheism".
“”The Conservapedia article is like that, and otherwise amazing: if you want to debunk frequent Atheist talking points, this is one of your best go-to sources. Here you will find ideological Atheist history and science examining Atheism as a political and social force. You’ll also find some of the best debunking of Atheist lies on the internet.
