    are people who are hostile to religion. Realizing that everyone here is well aware of this fact, is there a point in this string of words pretending to be a diary?

      as America seems raddled by religion from top to bottom and it has a visible detrimental effect on your society and, by cultural association my own British society, I say YES. Thanks to US influences the Creationists and Anti-Choice lobbyists in the UK feel increasingly confident.

      In the US people of no faith like Al have to deal with being the most despised minority in society, constantly slandered and put down.

      And if the WBC get to scream abuse in the name of their bigoted brand of Abrahamism, I get to answer back.

      Sorry if my long string of words confuses you.... maybe learning higher reading and comprehension skills would help? Complex and wordy arguments and proposals in the days of 140 character Twatter and FeckBook screeds do seem to confuse and loose some eh?

      Sorry if that sounds like a snark.... it is. Y see unless you make a substantive counter argument I just dismiss you as a lazy prat. You need not agree, but you do need to make a good case.

      Still, thanks for the input.

        OK, religious people, especially American ones, really, really, really offend you two to the point of frustration. I get it. Everyone here understands, agrees, and feels the same way.

          First, you should watch what you write... it is "to" not "two". That may be my fault for ruffling your feathers.

          Second - this is a patently ridiculous statement:

          Everyone here understands, agrees, and feels the same way.
          No they do not. All KOSsacks are not of one mind. And I wrote those articles for a US facing audience.... you know... the nation whose population would rather trust and elect a convicted rapist rather than an atheist (as a recent university study has shown).

          Which still does not get us past the point you made that triggered my snark - you consider a cover diary less than 1000 words long, or a set of articles less than 2000 words each, too long....as you said a "long string of words". I therefore maintain my assertion retains validity = you are mentally lazy, or incapable of comprehending complex detailed multi-layered arguments.

          And until you adequately explain why you consider reading something that takes less than 10 minutes to read means that the piece is too long, that tar will carry on a sticking.

          Sorry if I am a little spiky ... but if you poke me with a stick you had best sharpen it beforehand.

          •  Why the hostility? I agree with you. I also don't (0+ / 0-)

            think much of religion, especially in religious countries. How can I prove that we are on the same page and there is no point to your belittling me. It hurts my feelings and accomplishes nothing. There might be people on this forum who do not understand our point of view. They are the ones you should be bullying and intimidating, not me.

            •  I apologise. (0+ / 0-)

              You are right. I forgot, and that is totally my fault, that Americans are unused to the robust form of debate we Brits call Pub Rules. Two nations divided by a common language as old Mark would say.

              You have my full apology, and you deserved better than my responses were.

              Thank you for the input.
