Quote for the day -- too aggressive?


Blogger Shaw Kenawe said...

This is what I heard at the opening of the two-hour video "The Four Horsemen," featuring Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Daniel Dennet. Atheists are too strident, too vitriolic, or rude and aggressive in their push-back against religion.

Hahahahahaha, precisely right! Christians can dish it out, but they can't take it.

You know the religulous have an overdeveloped martyr complex and very thin skin, so....

Truth ... oddly, many xtians that I have talked to over the years, at least they claim to be xtian, even though they act otherwise ... but they seemed to lack even basic background history of christianity, didn't even read the bible, etc (I actually read the entire bible ... and I NEVER been christian). In fact, many didn't seem to care much about it, besides claiming to believe and embrace it, unless they were in a tough spot, sick, bad relationship, or some other tragedy. I'm not hard on them myself ... as long as they don't f*ck with me, and keep it out of our government, I don't care what kind of figure/ archetype one chooses to embrace. But Yes ... they have a really lousy crummy history ... and increasingly worse today in other wayz. That's why I say they shouldn't laugh at muslims and try to act as if their a breed above or smarter, their all in the same boat that evolves the same way. ... enough out of me ....

Shaw: Quite right. They'll condemn us for that no matter what we say, unless we shut up entirely. Sometimes you just need to say that bullshit is bullshit.

Debra: We're dealing with people who think they're being persecuted because they can't stop gays from getting married. No wonder they freak out at actual criticism.

Sixpence: Martyred by verbal criticism! Martyrdom just ain't what it used to be.

Martha: It is!

Ranch: There have actually been surveys that showed the average atheist knows more about Christianity than the average Christian does. That's what comes of depending on their pastors and priests to interpret the Bible for them.

Adam: Indeed.

It's impossible to have a reasoned conversation with folks who strongly believe in superstion and faith.
