Read carefully. Very few what you call true "atheists", the OVERWHELMING percentage just haven't found their niche, whether they are looking for it or not.
Enculturated or not, it is a reality.
The crazies on here will feel those unaffiliated are on their side, that they are winning a war.
What war?

What makes you say that? Oh I know it’s deliberate ignorance, total misunderstanding in inbuilt hatred of whatever you don’t understand. Right?
Yes, we are the asses, who do not understand shooting a 14-year-old girl! What hatred we must have to not understand their right to shoot little girls!!

Make this sound good. Make shooting, a little girl, noble!

Your inability to understand development, biology and evolution is not an argument against evolution, biology or development.
Also, and this is an aside, humans are much, much weaker now than humans living 15000 years ago. A friend of mine dug up a woman from 26000 years ago who was strong enough to "rip apart three MMA fighters in under 6 seconds."
LMAO

How did your friend figure the strength of a supposed 26,000 year old woman?

.. in prior posts, you indicated you TOLERATE gays but do not accept them. Have you changed your mind ??..
I accept that they are gays, but not what they do, if that makes any sense.

I don't like gays. I never have & never will. If that makes me a bigot, so be it.

I was born that way.

Key word: Opportunity.
We do not want to give the baddies *opportunity*.
I don't want my girlfriend, sister or mother excercising their rights to walk around on the city streets at night. Even though they have that liberty, it gives other the incentive.
Just because we have a right to go and offend people, does not mean that we should.
We went off track with the rape and walking through a less than friendly part of town. They really have little to do with the film.

The writers for South Park, should they be arrested? They have offended everyone! If they should not be shut down and arrested; why should this filmmaker be?

The radical mussies used the film as an excuse to attack on 9/11 and that is all. If their were really upset with the filmmaker; why hasn't South Park set them off? Why hasn't Jeff Dunham {"Achmed the dead terrorist"}, set them off?

It was just an excuse.

Right so those atrocities don’t count because they were individuals or is it because you have no argument? So predictable how you want to blame groups and not individuals and how you are not willing to accept facts because you have no argument against them.
The Israeli soldier that shot that Brit in the head, was he on his own or in a group of soldiers? Consider that he was part of a patrol manning an armed checkpoint.
Did the driver of that bulldozer act on his own or was he part of a group of bulldozer drivers directed by the military? Consider that no Israeli would go into a Palestinian enclave without military backing.
Was the pilot who killed 18 civilians at a wedding an Afghanistan not part of the group known as the US air force?
Was that soldier who killed 16 women and children not part of that group known as Navy Seals?
Or is it that you don’t consider the military to be a group?
Don't be stupid. Do you know a group who wants all brits dead?

Do you know a group who wants to kill women and children? Do they have meetings and discuss who they are going to fly planes into?

Try not to make such stupid statements, please! The taliban is a group of people, who have no problem murdering innocent little girls! The taliban stood up and took credit for it! They are happy that this brother shot a little girl!

.. like homosexuality, causation of bigotry doesn't matter ..

.. your dislike is directed at a class of people, not individuals. Therefore you pigeonhole and discriminate against a group ..

.. your dislike of atheists is also directed at a group of people. You dislike atheists without knowing them ..

.. again, feel free to dislike anybody you want without knowing who the are ..
