There’s one unstated attitude that makes all this reflexive self-righteousness, galling hypocrisy, and unblinking sense of privilege possible, and it’s “Who Cares About Atheists?”

    Notice that people hate atheits but not buddhists, despite the fact that almost all buddhists are atheists. Maybe they just hate the non-religious, even though there is no good definition of “religion.” For most people it means “something like Christianity.”

    Wouldn’t even know where to begin. When she started with, “Use one of the ten commandments to make your point?” and was 100% clueless to the sarcasm and point of hypocrisy behind the move, I think something in my brain just shut off. Then I saw Malkin and something in my pants just shut off. Thanks.

    Dan, thanks for the reply. It sounds like your main point is that atheists have to be nonreligious and be a sort of anarchist with regard to religion (irrational traditional authorities).
