Dealing with religious backlash to criticism.

There is someone on my tumblr who is an atheist scientist student.  She posted something along the lines of "religion is not the problem, people are" and went on and on, in what looked like a defense of religion.

I thought this needed to be sorted out.  I don't want criticism of religion to be so easily dismissed.  So I decided that people who criticise religion need to learn how to do it right.  This includes knowing the limits of their criticism.

And then it is also important to know how to criticise almost every single religion at the same time (“unlimited” criticism).

The person on tumblr that I was conversing with found these posts to be agreeable and helpful.  I thought I would share with more people who may want to deal with this kind of situation.

1. I think she is the problem, not people generally. I'm an Atheist because the supernatural does not exist.

2. This boy understands geometry and has found a profound new way of thinking and expressing himself.

3. As per 1 & 2 above.
