Please figure out the quote function.

I said the OP was being truthful as a response to your seemingly whiny remark that the "OP was disrespectful." Absolute belief in a fictional God is, by definition, delusional. That's not disrespect, that's truth.

And by and large, even those moderate religious folk who believe and perpetuate the God myth also support the legislation of that myth. I don't make a difference between the two, because to do so would be giving them too much credit. I operate in the real world. And frankly, the brainwashing of children with religious BS is abuse, and those who believe tend to abuse their children with this stuff. I would not "respect" ones right to emotionally abuse a child or brainwash a child with stories of hell, should they not believe in a magic sky fairy. I don't know why anyone does respect that belief, anymore than we would respect someone who deprives their child of medical care for religious reasons.

Atheists, again, are not interested. They are better than human. Ubermensches, if you like.



It's a very good choice. It allows for the future of mankind on this planet.
Ironic that you speak of "courtesy" while painting 15% of America as rude, without so much as meeting more than a tiny fraction of them.

This why nobody like atheists. This is why they are so disliked.

Maybe it's only the online people who go out of their way to let you know they are Atheists and not atheists.

His comments are insulting to ME because it makes me lose faith in human kind's intelligence and common sense!
The irony of the unconscious choice of words . . .

No, you can be perfectly polite when doing that. You don't have to be rude or abusive or foul-mouthed or snotty.

Who was rude, abusive, foul-mouthed or snotty?

From an objective standpoint, you're the rudest and most inappropriate person on this thread.

E.g. "Nobody likes atheists" or "this is why nobody likes atheists."

You're no better. You're worse.

The passive-aggressivism at play here is exquisite!
