Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Jan 29, 2013, 08:24 PM

A 'both sides (of religion/atheism) do it' conspiracy theory. On DU.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/121866266#post59

I'm astounded. I'm used to hard-core religionists defending their own religion, or denigrating atheists. But this is just ... nuts.

1. It's hard to imagine a long lasting conspiracy behind the ancient quarrel,

but if there were one, I would suspect the people who cut wood and build scaffolds.

2. That thread went to Bizarro Hell in short order

and it's amazing how many people out there conflate self defined and proud uvvit evangelicals with rank and file Christians who go to mainstream churches.

I keep telling the mainstream guys they've dropped the ball repeatedly over the religious right ranters who have strayed so far away from what Jesus said as to make the whole thing unrecognizable out of misplaced Christian solidarity with them.

That thread would rather prove my point.

7. A bit like the anti-Vietnam protesters

We were all rent-a-mob but I could never find the guy dishing out the money. He was always around the NEXT corner.

I could have used a few bucks.

6. That one is convinced the right wing is paying an army of meth-heads...

to post atheistic things on the Internet, IIRC.

There is absolutely no point in attempting rational discussion with them.

8. I wish I could say I'm surprised

but with the atheist-bashing in GD after Pres. Obama's inauguration wherein someone seriously suggested that most of the people complaining about all the religious pandering were probably paid, right-wing trolls, I'm really, really not.

9. I doubt that any of us on A&A are trolls.

That is just a convenient way for the religious people to dismiss any discussion with atheists. And it does nothing to help with an open dialog.
