    You twisted what I said (you seem to have managed to turn me into a rabid anti-theist from what I concede is indeed a trollish sig). I never said that theists shouldn't be respected, I said religion is granted too much respect, the two statements are vastly different.

    Then you associate me with Stalin, which is a hair away from invoking Godwin's law.

    If you want to debate anything, debate the pic itself, all I see from you is a bunch of ad hominem attacks based only on qualities you attribute to me based on a sig which I think poignantly show the sillyness in Christianity.

    There's nothing wrong with pointing out sillyness in something you disagree with, and there's nothing wrong with ridiculing sillyness either. As Thomas Jefferson said:
    ""Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus."

    This quote is relevant to a lot more religious material than just the Holy Trinity.
    The sig is true enough. Atheists can at least handle jokes against them, religious people consider it a sign of major intolerance just to joke with their religion. I have nothing against religious people, but when people like you interpret it as anti-religion just to criticize religion (when all other areas of discussion like for instance politics can handle a heavy discussion without the intolerance brand being thrown around) it's an indication that religion is granted too much respect.

    If religious people demand that their religion has to be holy for everyone else, that's not a demand they can expect to be kept.
