Congratulation, you pass. You found a flaw in my wording.
"The Church" is often and commonly used to refer to the entire group.
I could have just as easily said "The christian church".

What, exactly is your argument?

If you are an atheist I'll eat my saddle.
"Hard Atheists" so often go to bat for christians. Unlikely.

Show the christians tolerance? What tolerance has the church shown? Tolerance for homosexuality, women's rights? What tolerance. The catholic church's rape of young boys (and girls), support of nazi ethnic cleansing? Condom use in Africa? What tolerance. I disagree entirely with your assumption that I should automatically show any tolerance to these bullshit organizations. In fact I think your half-hearted support of your grandfathers beliefs is a lie. Both to him and yourself. I'm glad that you have a comfy feel-good relationship with your granddad. Try this... tell him what you really think and then see what his response is. I suspect it won't be as touchy-feely afterward. This is your responsibility. Religious moderates fully support religious extremism and provide the mechanism for their continuing hypocrisy & dogma. Be it in the middle-east, here in America and every little corner of the world. Tolerance is not what religious organizations need. It's exactly the opposite.

At first reaction, I laughed quite hard. Upon further examination, the software included in the distro looks to be quite useful. I have forwarded Xiphos (a piece of bible study software included in the distro) on to my grandfather, who immerses himself in study of scripture. If that's your thing, I would check it out. Guess I learned about a new project today. Look at that, Slashdot taught me something.

If you're christian... reading should teach you something.
