Subject: RE: BS: Fred Phelps & 'God hates fags' organisation
How can I hate something that doesn't exist? It's like saying that someone hates the Tooth Fairy, Father Christmas or the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I would say that any Mudcatter who did profess to hate god (or any other abstract man-made construct) would be in need of psychiatric help.
Atheism has nothing to do with hating god. In its more intolerant forms it has much to do with exasperation at those humans who invoke god to justify their own prejudices and predilections; an exasperation that at times can spill over into dislike or contempt.
But, to err is human, as they say...
