7. Insulting people's beliefs
How is pointing out the truth insulting beliefs? Why does such nonsense that virgins give birth and shepherds watch their flocks in winter at night get a free pass? If I believe a giant spaghetti monster has touched me with his noodly appendage, and I am insulted when some Christian, who doesn't even know N Korea is not our ally, tells me I WILL be tormented FOR ALL ETERNITY, is my outrage going to be made legitimate? Why is this a one way street?

Not all beliefs should be given equal gravitas. If it's a myth, it's a myth.
