    Why is it always Atheists versus Christians? Why are they seldom against Muslims, or hindus or Jews?

    Muslims in particular are the most mysogenistic and homophobic of all religions. They have a doctrine of world domination and are completely intolerant of not only other religions, but of atheists as well. Their extremists murder people whereas Christian extremists seldom do.

    I think it's somehow wrapped up in some fuzzy re-writing of history that includes a weird understanding of what the crusades were, and how Christianity spread...wrapped up with the vague notion that cars are bad and everybody should just live together in concrete jungles and leave the natural world alone, while harvesting unborn babies for nutrition and skin products.

    It's called "progressivism".

    Personally, I believe that it's just typical left wing hypocrisy. I know that not all atheists are lefties but most are.

    Hypocrits like the N.O.W. who are only FOR Democrat women, or the NAACP who only promote and protect Democrats blacks, or anti-war people who only protest wars when the GOP is in power. Atheists only care about percieved threats when those threats come from Christians.

    I think we got ourselves into this mess by brushing them off as "the same but different".

    They aren't the same. Progressives are motivated by forces that seek the elmination of freedom, individual liberty, and human life itself.

    :eusa_eh: I don't discriminate. I try to ridicule belief in all of the ancient stories as a group. There's just a lot more Christians on this board than Muslims to bounce stuff off of I suppose...

    To ridicule people for their faith is narrow minded and bumpish...

    True, but I'm sociopathically average...

    Any Monkey who will tell you that Monkeys as a species don't have a narrow minded and bumpish streak, should not be trusted in negotiating contracts!

    Christians are the biggest on imposing their beliefs on others. Jews? Not so much. It's an "exclusive" club with them.

    Same basically with Muslims.

    I love someone who accepts and glorifies their shortcomings.

    Good on ya for realizing you're a narrow minded dodo and being ok with it!
