Response to Fumesucker (Reply #51)

Wed Nov 5, 2014, 02:26 PM

52. When did I say that I had no dog in this hunt?

Unless that hunt is the endless, useless, self-defeating game of atheist vs. theist. But even if that is it, I would love to see it end. I think it hurts the party and the platform.

Did you see the article about how non-christian religious people are apparently fleeing the democratic party? Could it be that they feel less than welcome?

I did find your words pretty outrageous and dogmatic. I also found them unsubstantiated. I responded to that rationally at first, then with a person swipe at you. I have a grudge. I am willing to drop it.

I have, of course, been in situations where people were saying ugly things that referred to part of my identity. Sometimes I shrug and walk away and sometimes I speak up. My negative feelings are towards those individuals not towards whatever group they might belong to.

How do you think the religious people on this site feel when they experience some of the explicitly hateful posts about religion and the religious?

I am who I am. I don't live to attack religion and the religious, nor do I live to attach atheism or atheists. I do, however, have an agenda that includes challenging people who are prejudiced against either group.

I am accused of being too kum-ba-yah. I don't see the problem with that.

A truce is on the table
