He has this "martyr gene" that kicks in every so often. If he doesn't feel oppressed currently, then he goes out and stirs up trouble until he *does*.

Yeesh, probably no worse than whatever causes you to follow him around and insult him to save face.

It's enough to give someone a persecution complex.

Oh, come now. You don't need me for that, deLayman.

You create enough strawmen for others; just manufacture a few for your own use. Collect the whole set, even.

Exclamation

Ya know? I've found that life is vastly more enjoyable when
a). You come to realize - and accept - that nobody really gives a damn whether you're better than other people or not.
b). You yourself stop giving a damn about whether others rate you as "better" or "worse" than other people.

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

I am fully aware that Christians can get very harsh toward atheists sometimes, and that the following quotes are not representative of all atheists, but I thought they were just too good to give a miss. They are mainly from the Deja Discussion boards:

"God exists in the minds of the weak, the gullible, those that need a crutch and those who have a compulsive need to confess their sins so that they can go out, rip people off and generally be assholes for the rest of the week... a figment of some poor demented souls mind"

"The maggot ridden dead cadaver you christian butt fuck and then offer for sloppy seconds to non-believers is not welcome. You are certainly a classic example of a moron christian. Your belief is the most heinous disgrace the human mind could imagine. If you want to believe such primitive idiocy, go ahead. It's what makes you christian assholes."

"Theists are slime who thrive on mental slavery and get their joy from seeing the victims of their foul creed... They deserve to be dealt with in whatever fashion it takes to destroy them... Atheism is a product of reason. It simply is reality... Xians are fools who have held up the intellectual and emotional maturity and should be treated with the contempt they deserve."

and my all-time favourite:

"Every single christian is an abject liar. Not one of them has the bullocks to admit in public what they really feel. They all come in these NGs wearing the badge of christianity "loud and proud" but not one of them will ever admit that he KNOWS that his god is really just wishful thinking. Not one of them will be honest that they'll admit that the 'evidence' they have for their god is not evidence at all. I for one am sic and tired of hearing these morons spouting their empty shit at all and sundry. Insulting people's intelligence by expecting them to belie that they've "met god". This is the 21st century you fucking retards. There is no god, and it is as plain as the nose on your face. Get over it. Get a life. Grow up."

I don't see how the vilification that "perspicuity" had quoted is much worse than some of the vilification in the Bible.

Other religions are repeatedly attacked as "idolatry", and that "Prince of Peace", Jesus Christ himself, is depicted as vilifying scribes and Pharisees in extreme terms.
