Got It Worse,
Even, Than Atheists
I am a just man, full of kind and loving compassion. But there are some people I cannot tolerate. Some contend that one should respect God. I agree. In fact I am willing to extend my sentiments even further -- One should treat all the Gods with respect and dignity; I am affrighted to offend the least of them. So should you.
You poor bedeviled soul! You call yourself a businessman? You are not! My friend -- let us contemplate why Christians have and will always kick your butt in the battle for the minds of men. I feel you know the answer, but you need to be less blase about the whole state of affairs.
You are not stigmatized. I have more cause than you to call myself stigmatized and I do not even admit as much -- of course, I am very stigmatized. For one I am godless and irrationally atheistic. I am radically conservative -- the embodiment of every liberal's political fear, a terror that cannot be verbalized. And I am an authentic madman (spent some time in the state asylum for an imbalance if you know what I mean). So, no, quit whining about the stigma. My ancestors were chained to the wall... your ancestors were merely roasted at the stake or at worst quartered.
The lesson here -- attack. Fight fire with fire. The Xians have better Ammo, is this not wholly obvious to you? It is? What are you going to do about it?
Let us consider the Christian USP -- "You can have Eternal Death & Fiery Torture, or Say the Magic Word and Writhe in Eternal Orgasmic Bliss for Free" -- How can you lose when you're running on that one? I can hear you giving up already. You're not a real atheist. A real atheist would fight this thing -- a real atheist would stand up to this wicked deity that controls the universe. You have given up. You've sold yourself short -- atheism is for everyone too. Your message seems to dispute this.
