I have dozens of theist friends. Our discussions are generally polite and lean toward the relative merits of atheist and theist beliefs, not mundane secular topics like religious tax breaks. But with the hew and cry over…

I just want to say, throughout this, I talk about mostly about the Christian religion since that is the one I researched the most.
