Subject: RE: BS: Militant atheism has become a religion
Yes, Greg, along with such characterisations as "bitter ex-Catholics" that we often have to endure. It's a casual and easy way of achieving instant demonisation. A good atheist putting his or her well-considered arguments has had to go against a massive tide. They have worked hard. They do not deserve to be shot down by the kind of resort to lazy thinking that is implied by the title of the thread, or by the writer of that article, or by the oft-parroted, by not just him I hasten to add, received wisdoms of Ron Davies. That's where the true noise in these conversations always comes from.
