most of the people i grew up around where religious, my ma and pops where as moderate as possible though (thank....well the universe lol). but i grew up around alot of rude and bigoted extreme type ones too. but also i"ve met alot of atheists and agnostics who happen to try to offend people of religion on purpose, now both sides have the right i mean in america anyway. but don't you think ignorant religious people and people without belief who are ignorant are both in the wrong, both can disagree but neither side has the right to take it too far? bu tas you probably know i"ve met more ignorant religious folks than non-theists and agnostics. i think respect is the best way for both sides. please share you're thoughts on this subject if you would not mind?
