Many reasons.

I have been respectful and cordial to you, because you have returned that courtesy. Other Christians have not, have deliberately twisted what others have said, avoid arguments that they have no good answers for, and are generally dishonest. Not all posters of course, but some. These posters, through their actions, are not as deserving of respect as others.

Some Christian beliefs are simply absurd, and deserve a good teasing, which may be viewed as disrespectful or mockery.

Look at the recent attacks on abortion rights in Alabama, Ohio, Georgia and Ontario, all led by religious people. That is hostile towards women, and deserving of hostility in return.

Sometimes I just have a bad day and write testy posts. Just one of those things, and not necessaril6 directed at Christianity.

Chamberlain - lol, give me a break; the type of emotional anger/hysteria displayed in thread after thread by many does nothing to get the laws ‘off the books’ or fight Project Blitz. Fighting ‘pushy Christians/national conservatives’ is what I do - I simply choose to do it in a more effective, rational manner.

No, it is exactly what you are doing...at least here on this site. You appease them.

But the case here seems to have been rather narrow in focus, relating only to the rights (or lack thereof) for a religious, anti-abortion/anti-euthanasia doctor to provide any referrals relating to these things
