RE: belief?

At a funeral, you don't usually say anything disrespectful or skeptical of the deceased. You keep a reverential tone, a hushed sympathetic manner, and if anything unpleasant about the deceased is to be said, it's generally very muted and only said within earshot of select people in attendance.

This is "paying your respects" or "being respectful" at a funeral. Unfortunately, this also seems to be the same level of "being respectful" that Theists expect of their opinions in the public forum, as if the very CONCEPT of a debate on "Godly things" is treading very dangerously on "holy ground."

At least, that's how I think those people are coming across with their austere version of the "respect" that they demand.

Disclaimer: KC, I hope you know I'm not including you in all that.
I think that victims of convenient illusions should be handled with care

No. You asked if there was an idea that I considered too dangerous. I expressed ignorance of what you meant by "too" dangerous, made a guess about what you were asking, and answered as best I could in that context.

Right, in any case, I don't consider ideas to be dangerous
