The Stupid! It Burns! (backstabbing edition)

Former atheist: one of the many problems with atheism is atheists
[American Atheists national legal director Edwin Kagin de-baptism ceremony with the hairdryer of “Reason and Truth”] might upset some people but all I could think of was, “Is this the best they can do?” No clear-headed thinking? No iron-clad logical arguments? No empirical evidence? No attempt at acting rationally? Whatever happened to the sceptics of yore who sincerely sought God only to genuinely feel they hadn’t found Him? ... [Sincere, genuine skeptics such as] the scheming, backstabbing and vindictive Madalyn O’Hair, who was murdered by one of her many disgruntled atheist employees. ...

Fundamentalist atheists, on the other hand, don’t believe in God because they don’t want to. But they aren’t satisfied with simply not believing; they want to make sure that no one dare disagree with them.
By unreasonably declaring our atheism publicly! (oh my!) and vindictively insisting that we (gasp!) follow the Constitution? What egregious fundamentalism!

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
