Thread Name: BS: Giving up religion for Lent...
Subject: RE: BS: Giving up religion for Lent...
You know, I wouldn't even have a problem with the religionists having their threads, if they would just post something that exhibits some critical thinking about religion, instead of posting prayers and diatribes about how they don't need to think because they are believers and therefore, just need "faith".

And of course, the fact that they can't stay out of the threads that are discussing religion critically and intellectually, by non-believers. They insist upon coming into these sorts of threads and whining about how we're all so mean to the Christians.

That gets pretty damn tiresome. Like I've said many, many times before here at Mudcat--there is much less tolerance for secularists, especially secular discussions about religion and believers, than it is intolerant towards the religionists. It seems to me a day hasn't gone by since 9/11 in this place that somebody isn't trying to shove some aspect of "Christianity" down our throats in some way.

And the problem here is exclusively with Christians. There are no other members of other religions who are so vociferous in their claims to need to "defend" their faith here at Mudcat from bigots.

What a crock that is.
