Their words bear no resemblance to the theism I interact with on a daily basis. Those ‘straw-men’ and ‘caricatures’ of theism Gnu Atheists attack? Those are real things and real stupid shit real every day theists do every day. They are not straw-men or caricatures.
Yeah, that is leik, SUPER ELAGANTS THIEZM, amaright? They dont literally believe in Satan and literally believe that Satan was planning on appearing at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City, OK, last night. They didnt literally think they were talking to Jesus, and because of their efforts, Jesus literally fought Satan and prevented said appearance?
It was all an elaborate, delicate, inspiring metaphor which teaches us valuable moral and social lessons. Why-oh-why must Gnu Atheists pretend Real Christians are really this infantile, and make fun of this behavior? Why must we challenge the intellectual veracity of theism?
Mean, nasty Gnu Atheists.
