It's not like I said you need to stop or that it was inappropriate. I never said religion should get special treatment. I'm just pointing out what I perceive to be true- that atheists here are more vocal, and generally, less respectful.
I basically agree, not 100%, but no great argument from me. I do think we are cross-threaded on the matter but close enough.
I have interpreted your comments to believe you were making the argument that Atheists "were meanies" and being disrespectful to other posters simply because religion had a special place above politics or other discourse.
To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.
