85. Why should that be 'required?'
People of faith are under no obligation to justify their beliefs or provide proof for them. Neither are those who believe in astrology.

I'm not a person of faith myself and I don't care for astrology either, but I respect the faith of others enough to not go out of my way to shame them for their beliefs. What's so bad about live and let live? I prefer to just let them do their thing and not inject my own beliefs into their lives. I don't feel it's my place to do so. I believe I'm right about faith, but I'm happy to keep that to myself.

And phrases like 'xtians' or 'sky gods' are little more than calculated jabs intended to belittle and demean. It's like saying 'Democrat Party.' It's not the worst thing one can say, but it's hardly necessary either.
