How many of you get that?
My answer is quite simply this:
"I do not hate god. I hate your idea of god. I hate your jealous, homophobic, misogynistic, genocidal, pedophile persona of a 'higher power.' I hate the actions that result from a moral code put down by goat herders two thousand years before my birth. I -quite literally- hate the hatred the followers of the Abrahamic god foster upon this world."
I hate your god about as much as you hate Freddie Kruger. Even an imaginary character can be very, very scary.

Damn leprechauns.

Your reply would certainly get the point across Misty. But I tend not to be outspoken right off the bat, for fear of the 'angry Atheist' stereotype. I usually ask in return, "How can I be mad at something I don't believe exists? That would be like me being angry at the tooth fairy for only leaving 50 cents when I was little...".

Them - "You just hate god"
Me - "I just pooed"
Them - "What"
Me - "Aren't we having a ridiculous statement contest?"

I suppose it's possible. I hate Hannibal Lecter, Jason Voorhees, Freddie Kruger, the Goa'uld, the Borg, the Daleks, and those damn weeping angels aren't helping God's rep either! Hating fictional beings is totally possible, although I usually get ENJOYMENT and entertainment out of hating THOSE fictional creatures. With God, not so much...

The thing about all those villains mentioned is that they are actually fun, well developed characters. God is a flat, boring caricature that people take too seriously out of ignorance.

@Neal. The last time I spoke my mind and called God abhorrent, I got dirty looks from my family members in the car like I had just called everybody abhorrent, not some fictional character. They have a cherry-picking viewpoint of the Bible and have this blind liberal Christian viewpoint where Hell is only for bad people. They don't realize the most of the Christian world follows the standard hate-filled doctrines, and I'm basing my hatred on the idea of God off of that and that I'm basing my atheism off of the fact that there's equal proof for Zeus or Thor or the other gods as there is for THE God.

Boy howdy. I'm sorry I was ever Catholic.
