Thread Name: BS: 'Militant Atheism' is a propaganda term
Subject: RE: BS: Strident atheism not a religion
Olddude, you don't seem to understand that attitudes like yours are why some atheists get sore. Apparently we do need more atheist threads, and more, and more, until you and your ilk figure out that atheism isn't a religion, isn't a belief system, isn't being forced on anyone, isn't even usually talked about until someone launches a religious attack on us or advocates making laws that don't line up with the First Amendment.

keep your Gospel private as I do mine.

Bullshit asshole speech. Saying this, after everything that's been said on the subject, is an attack. Get a clue.

The the rest of us don't have to wade through your preaching

More bullshit asshole speech, and, as Steve has noted, no one is forcing you to read.

and I won't talk about my religious beliefs if you don't talk about yours

More bullshit asshole speech, and you DO talk about your religion a lot, usually in a way that is a put-down of anyone who doesn't share it.

I would say the same thing if one of the other believers in God did what you keep doing ... IE preaching about their beliefs.

But you don't. In fact, you started one of the threads and have been one of the biggest puerile jerks toward atheists in all of them. Here's the deal: you don't get to go around being an asshole toward people and then expect them to be polite to you. You don't get to tell them to shut up and go away while you are saying rude things. Until you learn to speak politely to people who don't share your beliefs, you can expect to called on it. And, after a certain point that you reached some time back, you can expect them to stop being polite themselves.
