Well Mrrzy, Old Bob here was practically forced into atheism by the circumstance of being raised in the Dutch Reformed Triangle. Hellfire and Damnation would have been a welcome alternative to the cold, mean-spirited, atmosphere created by "The Faithful". Anyway, as a sympathetic fellow traveller, let me tell you that you and yours(such as Riginslinger, who ought to change his name to Zingerslinger) have given better than you got.
When you tell "The Faithful" that they are irrational, they are insulted. Now don't get me wrong, a lot of them need to be insulted, but they don't thank you for it.
I had a rather aunt who used to say things like, "You keep a clean house and set a nice table. I can't imagine why your husband left you" , and "A lot of women look dumpy when they move into the plus sizes, but you pull it off." She was always surprised at the way that people reacted to her honesty.
