    Yet it is the Christians who are up in arms...
    Wouldn't you be if someone directly attacked you?

    So it's ok for Christians to attack gay's beliefs but not ok for atheists to attack Christian beliefs?

    It's not okay to attack ANYONE's beliefs. What point are you missing here?

    No, because I understand that I live in a free country, I want people to express their disagreements.

    Why isn't it? If you believe some that is wrong about history, for example Holocaust deniers, why is it wrong to criticize that belief?

    What about one's political beliefs? We do that ALL THE TIME.

    I think its more than okay, its downright necessary if you respect them and understand why it is that they are wrong.

    The part with the premises, logic and conclusions. I don't see any of it.... just a naive assertion.

    Except for the fact that they are the one's under attack, you need to have something better if you're gonna try to re-use my words.

    If a belief is the rationale behind prohibiting a kind of research that could save billions and prevent alot of suffering, and the belief is itself without any scientific validity, you had better believe it is more than moral to point out the logical fallacies of that belief.

    Right. So are their beliefs so shaky that certain atheists sharing their beliefs is enough to send them on the offensive?

    Sharing their beliefs is one thing, the sign in in the exact same area the manger was in first is an attack, completely different.

    You keep acting as if the "attack" (keep using the word, it makes the sign sound so much worse than it is) was unwarranted...
