By nature many Atheists tend to be bitter people who look down on people of faith. They think that believing in a higher power is an indictment on your intelligence and evidence that you believe the Earth is flat. South Park said it best when speaking of the followers of Richard Dawkins that “you have to be a dick to everyone who doesn’t think like you.”
The idea that “radical Christianity” is some sort of major threat is preposterous. True, if you confuse reality with television’s Law & Order you probably are inclined to believe that school teachers are assassinated on a weekly basis for teaching evolution and that religious preachers hide their closet homosexuality by murdering witnesses.
A white guy did blow up a building in Oklahoma more than a decade ago, but McVeigh’s abhorring of the federal government was the reason, not Christianity. We’re still worried about the next McVeigh but the recent thwarted Muslim plot to blow up Fort Dix went largely unnoticed.
Only a handful of extremists have ever murdered an abortion provider, but the blood on their hands somehow equates to the thousands of lives that have been destroyed by Islamic terrorists all over the world.
I won’t even begin to discuss the staggering number of lives claimed by the secular governments of the last century that put all religions combined to shame.
