    whine and blubber -- by loudly announcing you're not whining and blubbering. Which is exactly what I expected you to do.

    Here's a hint: We all are dicks to people sometimes. We are also all hypocritical sometimes. Get over it.

    At the core of all your bluster, however, is a fundamental fallacy: That disagreement requires disrespect, or rather, that one can hide disrespect in the cloak of disagreement. That's fundamentally false. One can say "I don't believe in religion and I don't see the value in doing so" without saying "You are religious, therefore you're deluded." The former is making a statement about your beliefs. The latter is insulting someone else for disagreeing.

    And ya know what? If you want to do either, that's your right. It's also my right to tell you that if you're doing the latter, you're being a dick.

    Don't like it? Well then, quit whining and blubbering at me for disagreeing with you.

    We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another. -- Jonathan Swift
