    You know, I've reread the exchange here; and I can see how my comment may have come across as offensive (although I admit my goal was really to see why kathleenm1 constantly posted comments that seemed to belittle faith). So I will concede that perhaps I typed too quickly there. And for that I legitimately apologize.

    But is my taking offense not as legitimate? You didn't respond to my comments about how I took offense to you. If I offended others, does it not matter if I also take offense? That's my point. You don't address how your 7+ comment couldn't be reasonably taken as offensive in some form.

    Do I also not deserve respect. More to the point, were you as respectful to me?

    •  No, I was not (0+ / 0-)

      I reacted emotionally, out of fatigue at the daily assaults on the character of atheists here on Daily Kos, and at the personal nature of your attacks on the character of atheists here, including me.

      I certainly did not model the behavior I'd like to see, and for that I, too, legitimately apologize.
