In all fairness, Patricia, this is the first time I've seen a person of Charles's nature here on A/N. He is not indicative of the quality people I've found here.

My princilples are the armor that protect me from falling prey to the hate you espose.

To answer your question: Education.

Education is the best weapon against ignorance. Our reason and believe in science and what we can prove is what brought us here. To give that up due to monsters of this planet only allow them victory.

there are lots of good discussions listed above, but it seems the comment wall has been hijacked from an escapee from a mental ward.  if there is a moderator for this group it may be time to take action.

I am perfectly cognizant of the world I live in, painfully so. But stooping to the mentality and tactics of those mired in religious thought is abhorrent to me. I hold myself to a higher standard. Violence brings violence, never peace or understanding.

We all lost loved ones on 9/11.

That comment is out of line.

And still no excuse to give into the hate that allowed such attacks-the same hate, mind you, religion employs.

Who is "they" anyway.

Like it or not, "we" (athiests) who live in America are also in the wars directly - hence the post from the military family.

Thank you for the service and sacrifices, Justalysn. You are truly a credit to your country.

Please also be aware that by thinking and posting "us" vs. "them" mentalities are the exact mentalities of the extreme religious you are so venemous about.

all will be well once Charles wins the Pulitzer (assuming they don't care about spelling), runs for President, then blows up the whole damn world in the name of religious intolerance.

Your arguments fail to find traction in your chosen audience, so you resort to name calling like a frustrated child? Tsk, tsk.
Comment by Troy Gorsline on January 6, 2012 at 12:48pm

Yet something else I take exeption to and disagree with. It isn't cowardice to be tolerant. It is courageous actually. Cowardice is giving in to ignorance and hate-to allow oneself to degrade to the lowest emotions in our nature.

I have been nice to this point - I am tolerant. But the last comment left me confounded. To give into hate is militant at its lowest point.

I would check your own courage levels, Charles, before calling into question the courage of others.

The only thing I despise more than intolerant religious people is intolerant non-religious people, usually because they feel more entitled to themselves.
