Christian Extremism

Christian Extremism

To be completed later.
    I would not say the follwing to an average believer, but I would say it to a Christian extremist who strives for political power in order to turn the U.S. into a theocracy. They want to do that not to arrive at truth but to enhance their own power.

   "You are wrong about gods, and you have wasted much of your life groveling before figments of your imagination. There will be no afterlife, no reuniting with loved ones, and no salvation for the "sins" you think you have committed. Every moment you have spent in prayer has been squandered, because there is nothing out there altering the universe for you. You have based much of your life on a lie, and you are a moron for doing so. I reject your values, your morality, and everything you hold dear."

    (Not quite "everything you hold dear; we and they share a few values.) I would not say it to convince them of atheism, because it would only make them angrier. I would say it to let them know that they have real enemies who openly despise them and want to remove their power. They already know that, but we atheists need to be more confrontational, because in our public statements we reinforce each other.
