Why one particular atheist is angry.

I agree with pretty much everything she had to say.
So I'll just add, "amen."

No, no, no.

Things like the Inquisition had less to do with religion than with power struggles. Religion was the window-dressing behind a particular group's grab for power. It wasn't the cause; the same sort of thing has happened in the name of Communism or exploration/navigation for example. It doesn't mean that Communism or exploring new worlds are inherently bad ideas; it means that power corrupts and people are people and there will always be social forces and ideologies that are the current sticks to beat other people up with.

But some of her statements just don't make any sense - trashing Mother Teresa for providing sub-standard healthcare? Does she realize that the alternative was not standard healthcare but no healthcare?

Anyway, sorry if I pissed off you and Ry. I'll wander off to a corner and make a "When religion is outlawed, only outlaws will have religion" icon or something.
