1. I understand the points being made...

...but I think a few things are being missed here.

1 - http://theoatmeal.com/ is a (hilarious!) web comic, not a scholarly journal. It's pretty obvious Inman was exagerating for humour, which is what he does, as a comic artist. Maybe Marc at Patheos doesn't need to take it so seriously? After all, some of the other content on the site includes The Motherfucking Pterodactyl Singalong Video, a visual comparison of hammer pants to hipsters, and a love letter to Sriracha hot sauce.

2 - Inman was clearly not saying that all religious people suck; that is explicit in the comic.

But yeah, the whole "I'm judging you for being judgemental!" thing is never an atheist's best argument.
