Fath is not a virtue

AronRa uploaded his speech at a university on the topic of faith followed by a 30-minute Q&A session.

Watching the first half of the Q&A segment, I felt that AronRa could have said more to address the bulk of the 2 girls' comments. They repeatedly asked why was it necessary for atheists to mock Christians and their beliefs. AronRa only briefly answered that issue by only stating he was attacking the belief system and not the person who is subscribed to the system.

That's true. But to further make the point, an appropriate retort would be to ask why not? Why shouldn't ridiculous, baseless, outdated, sometimes even vile nonsensical beliefs be mocked, religious or not? Moreover, those beliefs affect the world in negative ways -- serving as yet more incentive to be disabuse people of such beliefs.

One last thing -- one of the girl said that the Bible didn't support slavery. Hi-fucking-larious. I wonder what sort of apologymnastics one must execute to get that interpretation.
