    Why do you feel the need to preach atheism?  I think people at DailyKos can or have made up there minds about their Gods or lack of Gods, and I doubt you'll have much influence.

        I don't like people preaching Religion or Atheism. When Religion tries to creep into public policy, I'll blast it hard.  And when atheism turns into nothing more than an anti-religion crusade, I'll be blasting it also.

        and peace to you.

        religion.

        I ask you to show me some diaries that say "Judaism is the right way to go about thing' or 'Buddhism is correct' or 'Convert to Christianity'

        The religion diaries I see don't say 'You are wrong and believing a lie', or some such.  When they DO appear (which is seldom because they know they'll be piled upon, they are usually discussions of why they feel or act a certain way--or, as I said--diaries in defense of the concept.

      But I don't think anyone would be "preaching" atheism if it wasn't for the attempts by organized religion to get their rules to affect the freedom and the lives of people who don't share their beliefs.

      People don't usually give much thought to things they don't believe in.  Seen many protests against Apollo lately trying to get him to move his sun chariot a bit further away to mitigate global warming?  No, because people don't believe in Apollo.  But if there were believers in Apollo stopping climate change legislation because they think it is Apollo's will for the planet to get warmer, then yeah I think atheists might speak up.
