Oh yeah.  Particularly since it's mostly unflattering.  Most people believe in religion because of childhood brainwashing, reinforced by emotional insecurity.

The fact that this makes their church seem like a cult isn't something that most people are ready to deal with.  No, cults are all of those other churches that don't have Jesus's true word.  :-D

Yeah, in some ways, I love theists who tell people why atheists don't believe in their god.  It's almost funny, in a pathetic way.

The bad part is that the believers actually buy what their preachers tell them on the subject.  It's like Ray Comfort, who makes all of his arguments against hard atheism, saying that atheists are 100% sure that a god doesn't exist.  His arguments all revolve around the fact that it's impossible to prove a negative, completely ignoring the fact that any positive statement has the burden of proof.

It's frustrating as hell trying to talk to someone who accepts that sort of garbage.

Ohhhh, Italian-only magazine.  I see.  Yeah, that's a problem.  I took Latin in high school and college, but it's a bit too different for me to really read Italian and understand it.

I can understand about half of the words, but I can't put them together well enough to get any of the subtle details.

 

I don't know about your comparison between Palin and Berlusconi.  Berlusconi may do a lot of horrible things, but Sarah Palin is absolutely ignorant.  She's too ignorant of the US government for us to allow her to run the country.  It's scary how close she came to being second in line to running the country.

The woman truly terrifies me, that she can be that ignorant and think she has any business in government.

Oh, and I just saw your new headline.  Does that magazine have anything to do with the website www.catholicculture.org?  I found a few interesting headlines when I did a search for new atheism, on that site:

 

Why Are People Atheists?

devout atheists

Cardinal Levada calls for ‘new apologetics’

 

I'm about to read through them.  I'm expecting some insane stuff.

Yeah, we've got the same problem over here.  Most atheists in America support the liberal, Democrat party ... not because the Democrats support atheism in any real way, but because the conservative Republican party is owned by the fundamentalist Christians.

I was raised Catholic, myself, but I never believed any of it, from as far back as I can remember, which was 5 or 6 years old.  My father's parents were Irish and Italian (Sicilian), so obviously his whole family was quite Catholic.

I've got the Italian last name, Pellicore, but that's only 1/4th of my ancestry, so I can't really claim any sort of identity from it.  It's a shame, too.  Italian names are beautiful.  Iliara is just gorgeous.

 

We've got the same situation here in America, with Catholics being relatively liberal.  There's a small, conservative core in the church, but most Catholics don't really pay much attention to their religion.

 

And ... seriously, don't feel bad about the way you look to the international media.  Whatever your government is doing wrong with religion, America is doing far, far worse.  It's even worse, in our case, since our Constitution is supposed to prevent the sort of abuses that we have going on.

One name will make you look much better than America.  Sarah Palin.  Do you know of her, by any chance?  It's scary how close that woman came to becoming the Vice President of the US.  Our entire election system looked like a laughing-stock, to the rest of the world, in 2008.

Cool.  Glad to hear from a few sane people over there.  All we've been hearing in the news lately is the Italian government passing laws that the Pope 'suggests', since the two governments are strangely linked.
