I do not despise faith. Neither does any atheist that I know of. I have faith in my husband, in my children and in my friends. There, that's just one example of faith that I do not despise. I have no faith in any god though, but I certainly don't despise those that do. Unless of course they do bad things in the name of their faith, then I despise them.
You must know some pretty bad drivers Ray. I don't speed up when I see a red light, I gear down instead. That way I can slow my speed under control and now have to ride my brakes. It's actually common sense. When I set off I also look and use my mirrors first- that's also common sense.
As for the Christian god being axiomatic; I'm not sure how you work that out. If that were the case then surely everyone would be a Christian.
(My sincere apologies to the fine citizens of Wisconsin and Illinois. I do not wish to inflict Ray upon you. I just used your states as examples of less expensive places to live in the USA)
I'm Jewish ethnically, by heritage down the maternal line. I've never been Jewish religiously though as I was brought up Christian and was once 'saved' -Ray would say I was a false convert of course. But basically I am a Jewish-Ex Christian-atheist. If I were able to add homosexuality to that I could probably claim Bingo in the persecution stakes.
