I handle religion more gently than any other topic, and more gently than any of you handle other topics as well.
Even if I tilt my heads enough to belive this, I'm not sure as a mod that this is the standard you want to go with.
also, I'm certain you will out vocabulary me and never be wrong.
Are you mistaking what I said about him as being about religion? All I said specifically about religion is there is no evidence for gods. There might be slightly better words than "rubbish" for describing the bible, "nonsense", and "bull$h1t" probably aren't any better. That view is pretty much synonymous with not being a Christian. So that's fairly gentle. Anything I've said at other times that is at all harsh, is also true, and at the same time, there's no real nice way to express any of those points.
If you thought I meant he was stupid and gullible because he believes in a religion, I assure you that's not what I meant. That was more to do with the creationism comment along with 100 other stupid posts, threads in which you yourself laid into him pretty good if I remember.
You were talking about people attacking religion when someone mentioned how they don't like Jerry Fallwell or creationism. That's not even attacking religion. So it seems like you are pretty sensitive to it.
If you notice, I don't say anything when people are just talking about it. It's only situations like this where I say something. Religion is a lot like a penis that way. I don't care if I see you waving it about. I only have something to say about it if you're waving it in my face.
