As I posted on that page:
----------

If the godbots actually believed they were right, they would welcome the display. It's their fear of being wrong that causes them to lash out with typical religious violence, the same sort that fills the history books.

The only reason the godbots in this case didn't use bombs or guns is because they know they'd be accountable and couldn't rationalize it.

They secretly are afraid that everyone who doubts their beliefs....

...are correct to doubt them.

Their faith is **so** weak, than anyone who doubts, or expresses doubts or disbelief scares the sh!t out of them.

And?

Based on their words?

That would be a whole lotta sh!t...

That would be me-- I've never vandalized xmas decorations, or any decorations for that matter.

I do not consider "youthful enthusiasm" an excuse.

Nor I. Destruction is not in my nature. I enjoy the creative efforts of others as much as I enjoy the process of creation, and I think that's part of the human condition in maturity. Destroying creative works is usually an expression of rage or adolescent tomfoolery that is not universal or even normal.

I like Christmas decorations. They're often delightfully whimsical, usually pretty, and sometimes beautiful. The only things I've ever visited with baseball bats have been speeding baseballs.

Well, I've **tried** to smack into speeding baseballs.....

....9 of 10 tries, the baseball gets off completely unscathed.

Can't say the same for my ego in those cases...

In my drinking days, I had a xmas party(1980). I lived in a rural area,half a mile from a 'kingdom hall'. In the mood for some humor, we decorated a fir tree in front of the church with bulbs and tinsle and a star on top. The next day the paper reported that the church had been vandalized.

I hate to admit this but when I was younger, and that is one hell of a long time ago, we used to move the out houses away from the hole and watch to see when someone would stagger into the hole or discover the outhouse had been moved. Winter was the best time for such little pranks as snow seemed to speed people up and keep them from noticing the joke till to late.

Nothing like that good old "love thy neighbor" bullshit, huh? The first poster is right; if these religious nuts are really secure about their beliefs, then atheists wouldn't bother them. By them reacting in such a ridiculous way towards those who challenge their beliefs or are skeptical of their beliefs, it shows they are insecure about their own beliefs. They probably deep down DON'T believe all the religious dogma bullshit they were told to believe since they were born.

I agree. People who are really secure in their faith DON'T have this stupid and childish need to wreck atheist displays. It is only those who have serious insecurities and see atheism as a threat who do.
