I know! I mean, those atheists burning Protestants at the stake and drowning witches... theocracies are benign and full of rainbows and butterflies.

First, using your logic, I can assume that since you are an Australian, you are a convicted felon banished to that disntant isle, right? Second, now you are comparing saying 'so help me God' to killing people. You really need help in the analogy department. Your hate of God is corrupting your ability to think clearly.

Right, banished felon I am, and so it would be wrong for me to see the slippery slope in theological matters which lead to the nadir of theocracy ... something that has never happened in history before, and why Thomas Jefferson took the extra care to avoid. Excuse me while I go back and bury my head in the sand...

As for the ability to think, has it ever occurred to you that you might be severely lacking in that faculty yourself, with all the dogma you’ve assumed without inquiry? I never said private statements of affirmation of faith in dogma are by themselves harmful, but your earlier statement about why atheists need not be bothered by something they do not believe in is just laughable. It’s not god that atheists are worried about - just what its followers do in its name.
