I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

My Take On Hostility
The thread has wandered a bit, but I will give my opinion on the original topic.

Hostility has its place in the argument for me, especially regarding religious bullying and intimidation. When the religious insist on violating my rights as a secular citizen, which they often try to do, I am resolved to resist with absolute intolerance of their behavior.

Religious people love to use anger and hostility against us as a means of wholesale dismissal of our arguments. "I won't talk to you about this. You're just an angry atheist who wants to take away my freedom. I have rights!" Given our familiarity with this stigma I think it is actually a mistake to accept it. It might be tempting to try and control your anger like a Buddhist monk to avoid arousing the stigma, but it isn't fair or realistically possible. There are plenty of appropriate and important reasons to use anger in an argument. Who can argue with expressing hostility towards the systematic institutionalization and mass covering up of child rape? Given that the religious sometimes do argue against it, I do not think they are honestly considering when anger is appropriate or not. It is a well designed technique meant to silence their opposition from speaking out against them. When we do, we fear the label they made up for us to begin with. This cannot deter us or we are surrendering our right to speak freely and, some would say even more importantly, the freedom of other people to hear our arguments.

If I were to draw the line of what I see acceptable hostility as, I would say that I don't much care for any hostility without actual argument mixed in. By all means be angry and insulting, just have an argument too. Empty sailor mouthed histrionics convince no one.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

-Karl Marx

That's not strawmanning in the least, asshole. Pretty fucking stupid to cry about language in a forum that explicitly allows adult language. Grow the fuck up or find a forum for kiddies.
