    ...like me.

    Discrimination against whites by non-whites doesn't have much history in the US, compared to the reverse, so that explains a bit of the double standard.

    Anyone can talk crap about rednecks.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Like its possible to even be a sexual dissident any longer, there arent any sexual taboos left in the west that dont involve harmfulness as opposed to wrongfulness, you might aswell consider Ed Gein a dissident.

    Celibacy and self-discipline are probably the only legitimate dissenting position any longer, which is a big stroke of irony.

    This is the atheist getting publicity, and this is why people hate them.

    Speaking from and about the UK I'd say that people hate pushy people, its why they had the energy to hate Christianity for a while and maybe why they'll have the energy to hate atheism but by and large apathy reigns here, particularly in relation to matters such as religion.

    Well, that's apart from all the political islamists which the government took in.

    That was slightly too strong, perhaps. I do think though, that many people are genuinely irritated by religion and it seemed like he did make a few valid points even if they were laced with spite brought out by irritation.

    This is really why Atheists are hated -- I don't think many people can just bend over and take this sort of a beating without fighting back, not only because it's annoying but also because it's opposed to what they believe is true and what seems logical.

    Also, isn't that writer an 'antitheist'?

    personally, i think there's a big difference between an atheist who wants everyone else to be atheists too, and an atheist who's okay with people having beliefs. i'm down with atheists who are live-and-let-live, but the ones who are preachy are nearly as annoying as their religious counterparts - though much less dangerous to social freedoms in general - as far as i see it. i suspect they are very much a minority though - even if a vocal one.

    though i'd rather not see the states pull a france, and forbid religious expression via clothes and jewelry.

    regardless... i'm part of that 13.5%
    Yes, I see moderate religion as fine, albeit a little goofy. The fundies are the only guys I really have it in for, as I see those as a dangerous influence in society.
