Good for you for standing up for yourself, and using some decent logic to boot. Very, very few people on this planet can be classified with the Taliban, regardless of what they believe. The insulting character of much of current atheist discourse does not help our secular cause. That said, some of the billboards and bus ads by the atheist and humanist groups are great--we need more of them.
agreed great handling of the situation Mario
I'm the atheist next door. You religionists are okay. Like your parents you're doing what you were taught and thats your right. It's also the right of atheist extremists to spout their views. Well wishes to you.
