To be disgruntled requires one to have been gruntled in the first place Tongue

Youtube.

Anti-theism, is just another outlet for white male disgruntlement, a secular man's alternative to the tea party. It just a subset of atheists, that need something to be angry about, and some group or people to take it out on. If they were white conservative christians, it would be muslims and blacks, since their bourgeois rationalist the target is exclusively the religious.

I'm not conflating this group with atheists, or suggesting that most atheists are angry, in fact anti-theists are a minority of atheists. Their just a part of a larger symptom affecting multiple groups, of folks looking for scapegoats in senseless and frustrating world, that unites the Tea Party, the Mizzou Protestors, Donald Trump Supports, and anti-theists.

Oh look, more stupid shit from the king of bullshit. Dodgy How fucking surprising.

What? Why are you saying these things?

Being an atheist is not a requirement to be an anti-theist. You can be a theist and be anti-theist. Anti-theism is better understood when read as "anti-religion". You can believe in a god, but be against organized religion.

That's nice, now you just need to realize that anti-theist and angry atheist are not synonymous. One doesn't need to be angry or atheist to be anti-theist.

You seem to want anti-theists to be a pointed nose angry group of individuals. You don't seem to care about trying to understand us, what we are about, or why. You continue to misrepresent us, and it's this type of thing that perpetuates a negative image of anti-theism even among atheists.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Tommyboy, do you ever find it odd that so many call you on your bullshit and so few (if any) agree with you on anything? A rational/logical/intelligent person might take this as a hint that they are wrong, but you just keep doubling down. Your dedication to your ignorance is almost admirable Laughat

I dunno, you've kinda got to admire the sheer reality-denying ballsiness of him saying that you, a man who's not white.

Don't you?

The perpetually correct Dr. House. Ol' tommyboy has made the truth of that quote abundantly clear time and time again.

To be fair, I've known plenty of non-religious people who couldn't be reasoned with either.
