Why one particular atheist is angry.

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

ok, let's just take the single comment that you point out there.
"I'm angry about 9/11."

We can either see it as an atheist issue, eg: "I'm angry about 9/11" because it was perpetrated by Islamist fundamentalists.

Or we can see it in the context she placed it, as a contextual-preface to the statement following it about how whatsisface believes 9/11 happened because God hates America for harboring fags, sodomites, etc.
"I hate that 9/11 happened. I also hate that this dude claims it happened for x reasons."


I think she meant the latter, but I don't see how you can get pissed at that comment either way. They were Islamists fundamentalists, and killed $X people because their religion told them it was not only ok, but that they would be 'saints' if they did. The group responsible has said as much.

But it's NOT about religion, again!

It's about EXTREMISM.

You don't SERIOUSLY think that all Muslims think 9/11 was a dandy idea?! It's the perversion and extreme stance taken on ANY idea - religious, philosophical, political, social, whatever - that is the problem. Not "religion".

Their religion does not tell them it's okay. The perverted, extremist, politicized faction of their religion tells them it's okay. It would make as much sense to blame politics as religion.
