If you believe in a god you're a mentally disturbed moron.
At Are All Religions Equally Crazy? a normal person (atheist) wrote "First, just to be very clear: I'm not saying all religious believers are crazy. I'm saying religious beliefs are crazy. I'm criticizing the ideas, not the people."
She was being way too nice. If people believe in a magic god fairy (all theists) or if people refuse to rule out the possibility there's a magic god fairy (all agnostics), those people are batshit crazy, no matter how moderate they think they are. There's nothing moderate about believing in magic. There's nothing moderate about saying "We can't be certain there's no magic." If you believe in magic, also known as god, or pretend magic is possible, you're an idiot, as insane as the fundamentalists (Bible thumpers and terrorists).
Since 9/11/2001 (and with today's out-of-control Christian war against science education) it has been immoral to be nice about it. If you believe in a god you are mentally ill, you are scum, and you should be ashamed of yourself. You should get psychiatric help or do something to learn how to stop being part of the problem.
