    Really, I garnered not a single clue from this entire exchange that you were an atheist.

    Nonetheless, I would submit that it is possible to strive for less harmful religions while recognizing that all religion is necessarily harmful. I did not get that sense from your writing.

    Which makes me uncomfortable; it is all well and good to push your opinion, but if it's not perfectly clear where you're coming from, it seems a bit sleazy. When I concern-troll religious folks, I make sure they know I'm an atheist first.

    •  My apologies (0+ / 0-)

      I've been here for.. well, since 2004, and I've posted repeatedly about being an atheist in my diaries; I also noted in one of the very first comments in this diary that I was an atheist, right off the bat.

      That having been said, I grew up Catholic, most of my friends & family are Catholic, and I often write about the life of a lapsed Catholic, including summaries of the potential popes/etc.

      It's not so much a concern troll factor as: this is the kind of church I had as a small kid, I left for reasons of science, but the good I saw in the church as a youth is being eaten away by lunatics who are taking to the pulpits ;)
