Using PZ Meyers for quotes is not a wise thing, he has, on many occasions, been shown to be nothing but a bandwagoner. He jumps onto bandwagons that offer him something to hate, and nothing more. If he was a christian he'd be on the KKK bandwagon or the anti-gay bandwagon.

Quote: A dissenting tweeter is "full of shit", while, according to one supporter, daring to disagree with Atheism+'s definition of progressive issues and not picking their side makes you an "asshole and a douchebag". Unquote.
Sounds like Topix or modern Britain in general.

I think people's bad behaviour is down to British culture and the low standards of discipline in UK schools. Apparently, many young people in the UK today honestly cannot see what is wrong with bad language. This seems especially true of them on the Internet.

Atheism+ seems to be an average chat forum and not worth commenting on.

atheists are divided into 2 groups
1. sexual deviates and perverts
2. parasites who sponge off society and get rich while espousing 'working class' values

I guess when you worship an invisible sky gremlin whom you can't prove is real, the only thing you have left is lies and anger.

1. Deviants and perverts are lodged in the Whore of Babylon...The Roman Catholic Church. Catholics are NOT true Christians. Priests claim to transform a cookie and some sour wine into the REAL body and blood of our Savior. The same hand which consecrates the Eucharist is used to masturbate little boys. Their poll numbers are falling faster than an altar boy's pants in a Catholic rectory.

2. My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was a parasite who lived with his mom until the age of 33...He was a virgin carpenter who did very little in the way of carpentry and roamed the desert with a group of genital-free men. Yeah, He lived off society while espousing "working class" values, but so what? You need to watch Mel's Gibson's B-grade slasher flick, "The Smashin' of the Christ", to understand just how much that HOMELESS BUM named JESUS the CHRIST did for you and your eternal soul. Do you think his nuts didn't itch while on the cross and in a loincloth?

Glory!
