  It seems that you have been offended.  This was not intended on my part.
  I consider the various versions of religions to be interesting fairy
  tales and consider the fact that they collectively agree on absolutely
  nothing to be evidence of their status as fairy tales created by people.
  If you feel that your religion is under threat from someone who considers
  it silly, you need to talk to someone to get over your hypersensitivity.
  There are, for any given religion, literally _billions_ of people who
  consider it not just silly, but wrong, evil, heresy, a danger to mankind,
  etc.  I think you should be more worried about your real enemies than the
  people who have fun with something that is both tragic _and_ funny in the
  development of human societies and belief systems.  If you do wish to
  discuss your religious hypersensitivity, do it somwehere appropriate.  If
  you want to get respect for your religious views, have respect for mine
  first.  So far, you appear to attack me for no reason whatsoever.  For
  that reason alone, I think your religion is bad, for your information.
  Your need to continue to talk about this is not a very good sign, either.
  There is nothing in this message that under normal circumstances should
  cause Barry Margolin to announce his moral superiority over others, but
  one never knows how he needs to behave to maintain his belief in it.
