Wow. Why do the overly religious find it necessary to supply their own made up definitions and descriptions of something (atheists in this case) in order to argue for their beliefs?? Is it because they are painfully aware of the lack of logic and reason involved in their world view that they need to make everyone that doesn't agree with them seem somehow evil?? I would think that if their beliefs had any real merit, there would be no need to construct an imaginary depiction of those that don't share their beliefs in order to try and lend credibility and respect to their beliefs. That, in itself, is pretty telling

Wow is right.

What a pile of incomprehensible gibberish.

Keep trying.

Maybe someday you'll actually believe some bit of that garbage.

Oh, it's an iReport, not real CNN reporting. Anyone can play journalist for a day, even if they have nothing newsworthy or even intelligent to say. Still, it is sad to see just how little logic or reason is contained in christian apologetics, at least as practiced by the average American christian.
