Not that this is true or untrue, but based on the Law of Attraction....and that we are all connected....
 
Anyone who wrote anything...big or small..... is getting involved.
 
Anyone who is upset at hearing others go back and forth and makes a comment about that.... is getting involved.
 
Anyone who reads or just thinks a comment about this.... is getting involved.
 
Dee:-D

BTW....
Einstein actually criticized the belief of a personal God.  So he did what you are telling is not to do:
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_views_of_Albert_Einstein
Also I am tolerant of irrational beliefs that don't harm others.  The Abraham religions don't fit into this category though.

I disagree with your opinion that we all should not criticize religious dogma.  While I would never tell you that you must never criticize me criticizing religion.  I would also criticize you stating that criticizing is persecuting.  You are not persecuting me if you criticize me.  I would hope you would know the huge difference in those two words.
To me religion does not deserve respect as it actually harms others with much more than just words.  When a doctrine, whether political or religious harms others, then it is our duty as citizens to speak up against it and not remain silent.
You seem to have fallen into the trap of believing that criticizing religion is wrong.  It is not.  There is nothing wrong with questioning and also challenging others beliefs.  If the 'believer' finds this disrespectful, that is a problem that was caused by the actually religious teachings that taught that questioning is wrong, not with the person who dares to question their beliefs.
I will not be silent to immoral acts, to hate towards groups.  Funny how militant atheists are just ones that speak up.  In religion they use force and kill people to get they faith spread.  All it takes is words to destroy religion, and that is why religious organizations make people think that it is disrespectful to criticize them. 
I hope this gives you insight to why you are so wrong to tell the rest of us to be silent.  Hope to discuss in person one day.
Mike.

I don't subscribe to the view that all opinions are equally worthy

For example, people who believe that a being, outside of the natural world, who intercedes in our affairs, do indeed deny the basis of science. I don't respect that.

These same people often voice hate towards others, be they homosexuals, or people who practice birth control.

People who base their world view on the writings of Bronx age nomadic sheep herders do not deserve my time or tolerance.

I guess I am a militant atheist - LOL

So rendering the views of billions as useless and intolerable is a wise move and the greatest minds in history from Confucius to Einstein should be ignored?

Your opinion is a teaching moment! 

I value all....even yours!
