    Just because you hate religion you shouldn't impose your hatred on others who did nothing wrong to you or anyone else, and live simple lives, part don't you understand?

    Impoverishes "a few."  You clearly don't know many ministers.  Just to prove a political point, atheists decided that it was perfectly OK to cause financial hardship on folks they don't know and don't want to know who do nothing but good.  With the response when someone expresses concern about that harm not anything in mitigation (i.e. yes, I needed to prove my point, now let's see how we can nonetheless allow you to live and continue to do good works which, while I personally could care less about them, I must acknowledge most of you do) "too bad!".

    I appreciate your right to have an opinion different than mine.  Should my response to you about knee-jerk reactions to atheisms be as insensitive as yours was on this issue ("Too bad")? I personally think not.  

    But perhaps because that was because I was raised in the church, have benefitted from the role of religion in my life, and have family who preach the gospel today.  In other words, I was raised right and know how rude such a callous response is.
