11. Why are RW Xians so angry? Because you resist a centerpiece of their ideology.
You resist what they use to attempt to control everyone.

This has nothing to do with the existence or nonexistence of God or gods, or with human ability to ascertain knowledge of same. It has everything to do with domination, a wish to control.
