<quoted text>I apologize, I didn't realize you owned this forum. Have you ever visited HATE.COM ? I think you would be welcome there.
You made a point of saying we attack in packs, where else could that happen, but here in our living room(the atheism forum)?

What has hate.com got to do with you running your head in our milleau?

Just in case you haven't noticed, we have a voice now, and it's only growing stronger.

How many times can you tell us how stoopid we are for not beleiving, that the mythical god who was beaten by the iron chariot is the all powerful creator of everything, and then watch us collaspe in laughter, before you get it.

All powerful/whooped by iron chariot! LOL!
