As an outspoken atheist and anti-theist it really bothers me that certain elements of the left will shield Islam from criticism and ally themselves with it. Please understand that this is NOT something all liberals or atheists condone.
I know. Bill Maher's been consistent on this point. Ayan Hirsi Ali, Wafa Sultan, and the late great Christopher Hitchens as well. Too many, though, fear the Christians becoming ISIS/Al Queda/Boko Haram and minimize what those Muslim groups do.
Those Muslim groups do not hold sway in America. It is not Muslim fundamentalism vying to be presidemt. It is people who say abortion is murder and gays cannot marry. Call OUR prez lawless and faithless! (Cruz) All of them using women to see who best

I appreciate you saying they are most vocal about those they have researched the most. I agree with this. I believe the research is being done on the extreme branches of Christianity and it's causing misconceptions.
Well for the most part atheists don't bother arguing against liberal Christians. Their argument is mainly with those who hold the Bible as absolute inerrant truth and who then attempt to influence politics and society.
Very nicely put. If I were an atheist I would be most concerned with the far right fundamentalist Christians and that would keep me busy. They have the influence and power to effect day to day life. Shoot they worry me and I am a Christian.
Your answer makes sense Titen-Sxull. Thanks for the clarification.

Ok, I think you should look at Jacqui's answer. What you're describing is extremists. Yes, some are Christians, but some are just wackos using a God as an excuse. Still, I see your point. Thanks for answering.
Yes, Michaela, I know paganism scares a lot of people and you take a lot of heat for it. It's a VERY misunderstood religion. Just out of curiosity, what type of witchcraft do you practice? Spells, healing, alignment, readings......?
