The decal that he had could have been perceived as a verbal attack on the vandal. As such the vandalism was a reaction to a personal attack. If the decal had been a TTA symbol or something that said "proud atheist" then the vandalism would have been a personal attack agaisnt BD. A cross is promoting one's beliefs at the expense of others. While the dinosaur is.

It is a symbol attacking religion, because I don't like religion. Meaning that it isn't simply an atheist symbol, it's an anti-theism symbol. If a person can't separate themselves from their religion, then they aren't too bright. FSM symbols also mock religion. The Evolve-fish mocks religion. Mocking religion is a right I take very seriously.


It has something to do with free speech, I think. Consider

Bucking to be the next pope?

Christians post decals of "truth" (sic) swallowing the Darwin fish icon.... that's the proper response to being offended by the Darwin fish. If you think we don't understand that whoever removed the decal was offended and considered it to be a blatant criticism of their beliefs then you are sadly mistaken. Saying that it is aggressive or militant is an over-reaction though. Punching a Christian is aggressive. Putting a decal on your car is being outspoken. The difference seems to escape many Christians.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

RE: I hate people sometimes
When someone insults my mother, I laugh. It's the mark of a juvenile mind.

Your religion is not your mother and if you don't like your claims being scrutinized, keep them to yourself.
