And not to misrepresent myself as a sort of mechanical
thiest theist: I also believe in the Bible. I’m not as literal as some (for which they look down on me) but I do believe in it (for which others look down on me). To an Athiest Atheist this distinction is pretty much meaningless, but to Christians this is important, so let me just set that straight so I can go home with a clear conscience.
More importantly, I would never impose these values on others against their will. I share them with the curious, keep them to myself with the uninterested, and in all ways strive to respect others. I see no reason why reasonable people cannot get along, even when they differ on beliefs they hold most dear.
Thanks to Dave for the temperate response.
(Thanks to everyone else also, for many kind words and yet more praise for the work I do here.)
I consider the subject resolved.
