Spittle spills over HA / Which Christian is right ?
Am I intolerent ? Yes, yes I am. I am intolerent against all belief systems that undermine the importance of life and independent, critical thought. I am intolerent of Christianity, as well as most religions, intolerent of most political positions, intolerent of cults and other organizations that try to subvert the individual. Unfortunately for some of our fans at the Hellbound Alleee Show, that also includes liberalism. We've had a "Why Liberals are Wrong" show recently which made some people uncomfortable.
Mark Spittle, of the blog Spittle and Ink, has retracted his considerable and much appreciated support because of that show. He's intolerent. I don't begrudge him that. However, the question arises : who's right ? I think our show speaks for itself.
I don't want to point fingers as much as I'd like to point out that, if we keep dividing ourselves instead of trying to promote atheism, nothing new we do is going to take off. Competition is vital, but competition cannot exist without cooperation. I do tit-for-tat - you help us, I help you, you hurt us, I tell you to go to hell. I think that's fair.

Which one of these is right ? Any given Christian probably thinks a lot of these sects are wrong. Everyone thinks a different sect is wrong. Of course, every single one of them has theologians taking verses from the Bible that prove their sect is the only right one.
