The fight for secularism
Posted 21 October 2006 - 03:55 AM
This really isn't surprising. In a way, all religious and supernatural beleifs support each other. They all share a beleif in "another realm" which follows completely different rules from our natural universe but which can in unpredictable and untestable ways interact with it - and bestow power on those who can convince the sheep that they have some kind of control over this interaction. But we, the athesist and rationalists, challenge that beleif right at its roots, and that makes us dangerous to all of them.

I seem to remember this being brought up - not sure if it was here, or "elsewhere." This article in TIME MAGAZINE EUROPE suggests that the real battle-lines being drawn up are not between religions, but beween people of religion and secularists.
I agree completely! We often see members of various Sky Daddy cults banding together to oppress the dangerous people that have adopted a reality-based LifeStyle Choice
