51. I haven't told you how heavy your cross is..

So save your complaints about analysis.

Supposedly you have no dog in this hunt, you hold yourself on some higher plane above all this theist vs atheist bullshit. And yet you found my words sufficiently outrageous that you reacted emotionally no matter what you might wish to call that emotion.

Now imagine yourself as part of the battle, with people making nasty comments on every side without ever knowing they are talking about you while you stand there and listen to the hate pour over you like warm mud oozing down your head and over your body.

Then you shrug and walk away, feeling just slightly less charitable towards religion and the religious than you did a few moments before. But at least you're not one of those angry militant atheists who say nasty things on the internet about religion.
