  1. Beautifully put. Wonderful to read a voice of reason on this topic. Why do people feel the need to post such angry comments in response to your blog? Why read a blog you disagree with so strongly? I just don’t get that. I don’t seek out the blogs of fundamentally religious conservatives just to post angry comments in response…I just don’t get that. Can’t people just live and let live?

  2. very well put! i’m so glad i found your blog. i agree with the other commenter who wonders why someone would visit a blog they very much disagree with. i have actually stopped reading blogs i otherwise enjoyed when i just couldn’t escape the religious over/undertones. sometimes it was blatant, other times just knowing what fueled them was enough to make me leave after a while. however, i NEVER felt the need to call them out or leave angry comments.

    i too am a mom raising children with no religion. it’s proving to be very difficult to leave god out of things now that my oldest is going to preschool and will start kindergarten next year. i do my best, but it’s hard to make a 5 year old understand why i think so many people are wrong about the god thing.

  3. It’s interesting that the Biblical character God – supposed source of morality in cultures influenced by the Judeo-Christian tradition – is guilty of almost all the crimes you listed. The story of the Jews leaving Egypt alone covers: Murder and infanticide, and in theory, Mary was raped, no?
