"I come from Australia, and in Australia we’re very laid back about religion (racial intolerance is much more our thing). Its quite unusual for religion to be brought up by our politicians, but when our previous Prime Minister announced that he was pro-gay marriage despite the fact he was himself of the Christian faith, it was depressing how much hate got thrown his way. Don’t get me wrong he was a terrible PM, but the man had the courage to temper his beliefs with social justice, and our newly elected head of state is embarrassingly conservative."

“I’d be tearing up, too, if my child tried to use ‘scripture’ as a basis for an argument in a science class but probably not for the same reason.  Contrary to what she may believe, there is nothing intelligent about her daughter’s argument.  ’A 2000+ year old story written by a bunch of bronze-age nomads says so’ does not = rigorously tested objective evidence.”

Ah, an oldie, but a goodie. And perfect for October.

Okay but if you’re an Atheist and constantly bash Christianity while giving other ‘foreign’ religions a total pass, 90% of the time it’s because you’re fetishizing those other religions for their uniqueness and ‘exoticism’ sorry to say.

I don’t want you see you bashing other…
