    It would be nice if it was indeed "for the last time", since you're just repeating your own BS now.

    Or maybe because there is exactly zero threat of laws being passed in the U.S. to make other people conform to Judaism. Or perhaps because Jews in America have (or at least use) approximately zero power to discriminate against atheists. Nothing to do with fear of being labeled at all -- just context.

    See, very few atheists even care about what anyone else believes. We'll have our opinions, of course, as does anyone else. But the vast majority of atheist activism and public discourse doesn't even have anything to do with what Christians (or anyone else) believes; it has to do with resisting, and being upset about, religion being used to coerce people, to discriminate, to govern. And in the U.S., that's almost exclusively a problem with Christians.

    If this upsets you, you can take your poor persecution complex somewhere else. No one here, or much of anywhere else, is making any attempt to make people not be Christians. We just want y'all to leave us in peace.

    If, OTOH, your main goal here doesn't really have anything to do with Christianity either, and is to try to get people to hate Muslims more, well, I don't see more hatred as being good for anything. If/when Islam becomes a significant threat to our rights and well being, then I suppose we'll defend ourselves more against that as well.

    Yes, you're wrong.

    I don't see any basis to justify your claims of fear. It seems entirely imagined.

    To be fair, you were throwing it underhanded

    There are three religious truths:
    1. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
    2. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian faith.
    3. Baptists do not recognize each other in the liquor store or at Hooters.
