Obfuskation commented on Dan's blog post 'Family sues N.J. district over 'under God' in pledge'
"As a first line of attack I would be questioning why the state is requiring children to recite a loyalty oath in the first place, and asking what are the types of governments that do such a thing."

"I like Boghossian's focus on initially attacking the value of Faith.  He pushes on making the definition clear that faith is belief that something is true despite lack of evidence, and sometimes despite evidence against it.  From…"

"I think Nerdy Keith covered it nicely.  She is an evil and selfish person.  She is willing to suspend her views regarding the right to life of a fetus, because of her caustic attitude regarding a group of people who she see's as…"

"After slicing down a bit, we get this... So yes, this is just a variation of intelligent design.  You just have to cut away a great deal of admitted verbosity that was used to disguise it."

Obfuskation replied to Unseen's discussion 'Are homophobes really phobic?'
"I don't see anywhere that I've asserted that.  I stated as an aside that "homophobia" and "misogyny" are thrown out in a similar manner.  They are used to poison the well against people making political…"

Obfuskation replied to Unseen's discussion 'Are homophobes really phobic?'
"I’ve never heard of anybody being professionally diagnosed with homophobia.  I look at it more as a colloquialism to explain the irrational and hostile behaviors towards LGBT members of the community. The term is also used to poison the…"

"Congrats on the job Kairan. A lot of people fail to understand that a job is a job.  It is not a playground or social club, and there are usually rules regarding what is appropriate for the work place. I tend towards blunt-hammer diplomacy, and…"

Obfuskation replied to Bernardo's discussion 'Why we overdo death?'
"I don't celebrate a death.  I like wakes, because friends and family can get a cathartic effect by both missing the deceased and celebrating their life.  It's a form of closure.  We are social animals, and it is a social…"

Obfuskation replied to Unseen's discussion 'Torture Works'
"Its all in fun.  The admitted bait and switch from title to topic should show that this thread was a bit of a rigged parlay to begin with. I like Unseen's energy.  He keeps topics flowing."

A recent discussion has gotten me thinking more about a certain mindset that seems common in the online atheist community.  The discussion had a lot of bleed-over from a previous discussion, then I was offline for a few days and the conversation dissipated, so I'm throwing this out here.  The mindset that it is justified to ridicule those who have irrational beliefs.…
