If the Catholic Bishops, their Evangelical Protestant allies, and other Right-wing fundamentalists had the sole objective of decimating religious belief, they couldn’t be doing a better job of it.
I mostly agree with Tarico’s remarks, and encourage one and all to go read the piece. Guaranteed: You will encounter and recognize at least one, or all, of the bothersome evangelicals in your life.
I have just one, fairly small quibble. I strongly doubt that bad Christian behavior per se is turning people into atheists, for atheism is a conclusion reached following thought about a specific religious claim. Bad Christian behavior is definitely driving people out of church and diminishing the influence of Pastor Bubba, however, and that’s just as good.
