I have been accused of being hostile to religion, usually because I will defend atheism and challenge religion. Which I do not think is hostility; I think a free exchange of ideas is a good thing, as long the participants can be civil and act like adults. Further, my stance on religion is not to say it’s worthless. Many people have used it to make their lives better, and that’s great, especially for convicts. I might disagree with their method, but not the result. However, plenty of people also use their religion to say: “Everyone who doesn’t think like me is going to hell, especially homosexuals.” And that is NOT great. That is moral and intellectual immaturity. And since there seem to be millions of people in America who think like this, I often address my harshest arguments to them.
