As anyone who has read my writing knows, I'm not a fan of religion. I'm also not a fan of wannabe trolls, masquerading as atheists, preaching their nonsense louder than most Christians.

You think that religion is a dangerous, and potentially destructive institution? Hey, I'm right there with you.
But knock it off with the b.s. attacks on religion simply for the sake of attacking religion. I'm not a Christian, but I still say "Merry Christmas" to people. I'm not Jewish, but I won't serve Shrimp Cocktail when my Jewish friends are over for dinner.

Here endeth the first lesson...

This topic is old, I know, but I'd like to ask it anyway. Many Christians will ask an atheist, "Why are you here if you don't believe God (should it be a Christian thread)?" Some will answer,...
