    They bombed black churches in Birmingham in the 1960s...

    Yes, but for racist reasons, not to "stamp out religion".

    PS: Its kind of obvious that the guy is an athiest btw. I don't know of anyone of religious background that wants to get rid of all the churches in this country....
    Tell me again how rational atheists are?

    Geeze louise, you should have been ashamed to post that. "It's understandable"? S'rly?

    We had a fire in a mosque in Toledo not long ago; damned near burned the place down. They just arrested the criminal, so we'll know eventually, but I'm guessing he wasn't fueled by a hatred of all religions.

    Yes, understandable. There are always athiests that are quite willing to blame the whole of <insert religion here (or all)> for the idiotic things that fanatics do. Is it really any wonder that eventually someone would start pointing out the idiotic things that some idiotic athiest did also?

    If one side does it then you really should expect the other side to do it the moment they get a chance to do it also. Doesn't mean that either side is right in doing it of course. But it is understandable that it happens.

    This is just mealy-mouthed, weak-minded apologistic claptrap.

    Where in that post did I apologize for anything? Indeed I'm quite sure that I said that it wasn't right to do it did I not?

    If it wasn't right, which part did you understand? The killing people and destroying their houses of worship part?

    I think perhaps you should go back and re-read what I have been talking about. See, I haven't once commented on the article or the guy that is in that article. What I have been commenting on is Kandahars (his first post in this thread) comment which was in response jamesrages comment in his first line of the OP.
