Christians do the same thing when they condemn certain sinners to hell publicly. It’s interesting that neither side really seems to get that compassion not insult and condemnation win people over.  Click the link below to read the article – I think it’s thought provoking.

  1. It’s been an interesting day with this article and the comments posted to it. I enjoy a healthy debate but I’m curious why so many atheists seem so angry all the time. Why is it that people (not just atheists) can’t seem to debate without becoming insulting?

You’d think believing there is no God would be freeing to them but I guess that isn’t the case. Too many of them feel like their an oppressed people forced to celebrate and accept things they don’t wish to. No really, atheists are the slaves and holocaust Jews of the modern world.
