Why are so many hubbers so hostile towards Christianity and religion in general?


The mysteries of life's meaning and what happens to us after we die have led people to develop supernatural belief systems since the dawn of man. Religion provides the assurance that life is not merely an abitrary accident and that our souls survive eternally. The belief in God allows for unavoidable justice that evil people who can never pay for their crimes in life will pay for in the afterlife. It is a valid position to deny the existence of any realm beyond the physical but it is also valid to contemplate what we cannot know. Attacking religion cannot bring enlightenment.

    Thanks for your take on this question. I am not religious but am concerned over the spike of intolerance from people who claim to be reasoned. It's as if anti-religious zealots are trying to one-up their dogmatic counterparts.

    Yes. Unfortunately speaking one's mind sometimes and trying to avoid being preached at means you're denying religious freedom to some of the fundies.... at least in their mind
