You wrote, foolishly, "You have no reasonable right to tell anybody how to live their life. Because their life is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. What part of that do you not understand?"

Their life is my business, when it affects my life. Your right to wave your fist ends where my nose starts; your right to dance ends where my toes start.

Look at how religious creeps are constantly pushing to make their religion dominate-- literally. "Under god" in the pledge of allegiance; ten commandments (most of which are religious demands) on a statue on a court house lawn; creationism taught as though it's science like evolution; blue laws keeping businesses shut on Sundays.

We're under attack. That gives me the right to tell idiots that they're idiots, and to tell religious arseholes to back off.
Faith Is Like Lollipop Sticks
It's not being a zealot, to object to people stepping on my neck.
You're not more sane, just more dilute and passive... like a lapdog.

That's some seriously wrong thinking. Fighting back when people put you down-- that's Rosa Parks style goodness. Pointing out that someone's letting superstition and faith turn them into narrow-minded bigots: that's a public service.

 NOTHING I've done makes Atheists look like immoral people.
For real immorality, look to the people who get their "morals" from dusty old books of myths.

I'm not the one with a perspective problem. You're the one trying to make religious nonsense fit into some kinda real world view.

Remember that there are only two REALigions: Atheism and Agnosticism. The rest are myth-based superstition.

Ignore the anti-sobriety society. It's the "weebly" website that represents the saner of the two "Make a Fish Foundations".

"Make a Fish" is dedicated to convincing non-artists to try their hand at art, and also to urban renewal projects, Burning Man art projects, and so on.

It's founded & run by a guy named (yes, really, "Mr. Baity". He and I joke that we may end up like the seminal punk rock group, "The Ramones", in which all the members have had their family names legally changed to "Ramone".

Will I soon be "Seth Bass" or "Chum Baity", or something like that? Good gourd, I hope not.
