When ignorant people with a trendy prejudice are encouraged in that prejudice by their ignorant friends.

It's no different than mocking pagans or jews or buddhists or hindus.... or any other religious denomination.
It's just as lame and ignorant and intolerant and mean.

If you really don't understand the point and purpose behind the bible... ask. Don't mock it. I'm not now nor have I ever been a christian. That doesn't preclude my capacity for calm understanding. And I don't understand why it does for *so* many people.
The idea that applying modern standards to an ancient book written by ancient men about a supernatural creature of awesome power and scope is a valid application ... heh.. that's just inane.

So why do so many modern day athiests do it?

"oh look! I'm under 40! I can be jaded and cynical too!" Bleh.

I went and saw that because that chick took me off her friends list today. I hadn't noticed that she'd put me on. And now I want to kick whoever led her to me as well for (in some really round about way) making me read that.

The hell of it is, I'm not religious. I don't have faith in a "god" of any sort. I don't pray and I don't believe and I don't think anyone else necessarily should either.
But I think faith is a beautiful thing and I envy it.

Personally, I plan on being jaded and cynical after I'm 40 too.
