Re: [bostonatheists] Your irreligious daily devotional

Alright, religion-bashing has been cute the first three dozen times, but it really needs to stop. It helps no one, especially atheists.

I would like to be part of a community like the one I saw yesterday, lots of people gathering for food and friendliness. But if the undercurrent of resentment and hate is a permanent feature of organized atheism, I'll try my luck with the Boston Rock Climbers instead.

 Epicurus scoffed at Christianity because it was his target of opportunity. The same sentiment, it seems to me, applies to any theistic religion.
