HAHAHAHAHAHA! Good jokes, great times.
I dunno why this bothers everyone. As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't matter. These people are fools. They will not learn, they will not yield; sh*t, they can't even learn to live with each other and be tolerant of the fractional differences in the different religious subdivisions.
Who cares? Another arrogant, ignorance, dogmatic, selfish, close-minded, insecure, bigoted, delusional f*cks. What else is new? LOL
For me it's less about the writing. I expect people of that mind to write ignorant and delusional things. I just get annoyed with those that comment on the writings.
Whereas it feels like a relative amount of civility takes place in a forum like this, the comments in favor of writings like this are filled with vitriol and hate towards "the other". That kind of internal extremism is something the world needs less of.
Granted, we have ripped the article to shreds and demonstrated our own distaste and anger towards the writing and those that would believe its words, I doubt highly that many here would express the same kind of hate as:
"Its classic Marxist dogma, you can't be free unless you denounce religion... ...Thats takes us back to Hitlers answer to Marx's jewish question..."
"Tell the next non-believing Leftists (from the Department of Redundancy and Repitition Office) that they need to spread the word,
"There is NO MOHAMMED!"
outside of their nearest mosque, too. Watch them crumble. Heh."
"Brad, if you were an enlightened Liberal this article would be titled: Yes, Virginia, There is a Government."
In retrospect, perhaps hate is not the word I am looking for. I suppose what gets to me is the way the arguments of theist seem permanently linked to politics and their place on the world stage. Also, I know there will always be a few who seek to be extreme, while others are more sane and rational. But that it feels like there are so many more extreme theist views popping up is what bothers me about it.
