Thread Name: BS: 'Militant Atheism' is a propaganda term
Subject: RE: BS: Strident atheism not a religion
Olddude, the answer is really, really simple. Don't open the bloody thread. Hope this helps.

Joe, no-one is asking you to defend your individual actions. In your earlier post you wished that you didn't have to defend your religion. Well, I might go to bed thinking about Marilyn Monroe every night. How would you know? But you'd be bloody annoyed if I stuck Marilyn Monroe posters and statues up all over your town and tried to force the schoolkids to learn her life story. Your religion gets everywhere, whether you like it or not, so I'm saying it had better be good. That's what I mean by saying you don't necessarily get to be left alone. That's what religion has demanded for itself (sometimes under pain of death) for millennia. It's now time for religion's adherents to do some staunch defending. When you think about it, it would be one good way of making religion a lot better.
