Going way back to when I began discussing faith online at a forum called Bible Babble (2001 or 2002, can’t remember exactly) I have interacted persistently with anti-theist trolls who, to compensate for obscenely uninteresting lives, act out online for attention.
While it was fun while it lasted, I can no longer tolerate the antics of the willfully blind and profoundly ignorant who, it seems, have nothing better to do with their time than jerk-off online all day, every day.
Therefore, from this day forward, all anti-theists and the Christians who regularly participate in their stupid internet slap fighting are banned from commenting here.
While Christians are indeed asked to “give reason for the hope that we have” (1 Peter 3:15), we are not required to entertain fools, scoffers, and those who hate what we stand for with every fiber of their being.
All that being said, here is a post dedicated to the true, albeit often unintentional, goal of your basic internet anti-theist.
MANCHESTER, UK—A month or so ago in a moment of quiet reflection over a pint self-described New Atheist, Matthew Kenney, 52, came to the realization that he could no longer, in good conscience, behave like a rational and well-adjusted member of civil society.
“If you look at how I’ve treated internet fundies lately, it’s abundantly clear that I’ve become a bloviating puss-filled pain in the arse. I know it, my wife knows it, my readers know it…and by dog I won’t get up from my computer until every single indoctrinated Christian on the web knows it.” Kenney recently wrote in a lengthy and semi-coherent blog rant.
The devout atheist, who for more than six years has tirelessly waged an ultra-reasonable and civil online war against the “man-made myth of Christianity” has apparently reached the end of his patience in dealing with “fraking fundamentalist arsehats who don’t have the common decency to shut the frak up about the fictional Jesus of Nazareth character already.”
“I’ve tried to be nice. I’ve tried to get them to read. I’ve tried to get them to objectively examine the facts. I’ve tried to get them to see what indoctrination does to kids…. ” He wrote. “…but, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”
“Since I obviously can’t use sound reason and logic to get the nasty trough lickers to willingly reject their bronze age dogma then, bugger my giddy aunt, I won’t sleep a wink until the whole lot of ’em realize what a disgting eruption of hairy lizard droppings I am.”
