Let's hear it for the theists
Over the last few months I've seen a few theist posters make the claim that this forum is filled with vicious, cliquey atheists who chase them round insulting them to score points (interestingly, pretty much the same argument was made by Militant Atheists So? and Balstrome, who claimed that the forum was filled with weak, cowardly atheists who were chasing them round insulting them to score points - it seems that whichever side is throwing a sulk that day, the regular atheist posters are the poor schmucks who get it in the neck).

As an agnostic who spends most of my time somewhere in the middle, I think this is completely untrue, but in case I've missed something I wanted to show my appreciation for the theists who get involved in discussions, patiently explaining (some times VERY patiently) their ideas and listen to what other people are saying. This is a forum for the discussion of religion, and it would get extremely tiresome extremely quickly without a range of people from different directions, and I would hope that no group ever feels that this place is hostile to them because of what they believe.

Let's hear it for Alison, Yefet, clem, ain, and all the rest of the theists on these boards who are sane, reasonable, and respectful!

Huzzah! I have nothing but respect for all of you.

In other words, if you challenge atheist's illogical fundamentalism here, they won't like you.

A thread that was set up entirely to be nice about people, Bio, and within three posts you've insulted an entire group of posters and questioned their integrity. Sorry, who are the childish bullies again?

Okay Bio, show me where you've been attacked in this thread. Highlight the exact quote you needed to "defend yourself" from, I'm all ears.

RE: Let's hear it for the theists
So let's go back to being friendly and talking about how much we like each other. That is the purpose of this thread, right?

I'd like to also give a shoutout to AtheistsTheistWife -- where's she been, anyway?

RE: Let's hear it for the theists
I too would like to single out Alison and Hamza for their intelligent discussions with me in the past. Though I do not share your beliefs, I have great respect for both of you due to your willingness to engage in thoughtful discourse.
