For some atheists it is upsetting that so many base their lives around
religious belief given this, and they feel obliged to tell them why they
are wrong at every opportunity; stathis
And the other way around: Yet another reason for atheists to be militant:
being lectured to, patronized by people they consider intellectual
inferiors. It doesn't have to be that way. I've been 'corrected' by
students in my 101 classes and I found it funny (though I tried to hide it).
