"Why should we wish to live apart from the religious community? While I agree that the faithful can be, at times difficult to be around due to gratuitous expressions of faith, this is a rather small annoyance for myself. What you are suggesting is…"

"We can overcome the daily challenge of living apart from the "religious" people by NOT living apart.  Living apart from them is the problem.  To create an amiable atmosphere with the religious, we have to interact with them on…"

"While I agree with the majority of your reply, Jenna, I would have to say that we do have to be a bit hostile towards religion. We shouldn't stand by and be pacifists when our rights are threatened, and by not being vocal and a bit aggressive…"
