Norman is being amusing again

     "Here are more examples of obnoxious christians misbehaving like juvenile delinquents that are deperate for attention. When christians get called on their petty tricks, they play the victim card. Agonizing"
     Believe it or not, I have met several christians that were decent people. Norman isn't one of them. But broad-brushing like in the above quote is a bad idea.
     Norman strangely complains about bad manners. I have yet to see him exhibit anything but bad manners. It might behoove him to examine himself. But I digress.
     Religious people have had an irreational hatred and mistrust for atheists for centuries. Unfortunately far too many people think it is impossible to act in a moral fashion without imagining someone watching your every move. On the plus side, this attitude has waned somewhat. But, we still have people like Norman who cherry-pick in an effort to justify their hatred.
     Norman is also complaining about "atheists" giving christian movies "unwarranted bad reviews." I rather doubt this. Don't get me wrong. There really have been some good christian movies. But, in my experience, most movies that are set up to be specificly christian are too concerned with getting the christian message out to bother with such trivialities as telling a compelling story. What Norman is dealing with is probably that the movies in question got several good reviews from the producers and their friends (or some other die-hard christians.) But when the general public saw it and found that it wasn't very good as a movie, they rated it down.
