Christian Conceit

Christians often complain that atheists do not show sufficient respect for Christian beliefs. That is like a patient complaining that her psychiatrist does not take her belief that she is a werewolf sufficiently seriously. This is not a matter of respecting opinions. Christians are demanding atheists pretend to take their bizarre delusions seriously. Christians got in trouble by treating some fanciful ideas with far too much reverence. Christians refuse to acknowledge they have absolutely no evidence to back up any of their claims of fact. They are no different from people claiming to be werewolves who cannot show any evidence they are, just their heartfelt conviction and the observation that there are many other people who think the same way.
