My take is that he's like that bratty little kid on the grade school playground who is lonely and the only way he knows to get attention is to pester the big kids. Tongue out, neener neener, the whole works.

I didn't expect respect that.

Nobody expects The Spanish Inquisition...

(I admit, I just wanted to do the Spanish Inquisition line since you set it up. Thanks!)

Need to think of a witty signature.

When you're lonely, all attention is good attention.

Forgive my snickering at you comparing yourself to Christopher Hitchens ... that shit's just funny. A lot funnier than the slams you were trying out on Anj.

I'm not claiming I am as successful as Hitchens was at getting people to think about things....I'm just saying being an asshole doesn't mean it can't be done as Aliza errantly suggested.

There was no errancy about it. I clearly agreed with you that people can be assholes while also being successful at communicating a message. This method seems especially effective when the intended audience has as much pent-up anger as the atheists do toward the oppressive nature of Christianity.

I'm making the distinction that you're not successful at employing this tactic. You apparently have no success at all at appealing to the members of this forum. Shit, you can't even make allies of the theists here. So if you're unsuccessful at communicating your message and you're unwilling to change your tactics to become more successful, then why do you come here? The only reason I can think of is that you're here to troll.

I'm not attributing that claim to you.

But what Aliza suggested is at least partly true. Something about flies, honey, and vinegar comes to mind. Hitchens got away with being a jerk sometimes because his ideas were strong enough to command respect anyway.

Yours, not so much.
