Response to cbayer (Reply #11)

12. Harm is the measure.

And other people's beliefs generally do not harm me, or anybody. But the extent that a person attempts to use their fervent beliefs to impose them on others (through politics or otherwise), I draw the line. There is the harm.

Generally, I prefer tolerance, but I will defend my atheistic position when it challenged. Hopefully politely.

Where I lose my patience is when people act like jerks, whether they believe or otherwise. There is no room for such a thing when rational discourse is called for. E.G., here.

My best.
