As it was also said in a comment, he had a gun.....but so does almost everyone there! It's beyond disgusting.

Arrest warrant - for what crime? - ok, but can't they think of a more decent way than during his father's funeral? Disgusting!

Thanks, Ian for the pic and quote. Just to let you know I've stolen it and posted it on Twitter

Ian, the Salman Rushdie quote offers sound advice. Because humans have brains capable of thinking and reasoning we have the responsibility, obligation, and opportunity to be skeptical about ideas, challenge  ones that don't stand up to evaluation and support ones that do.
For one human being to own another is simply wrong, in spite of what any holy book says. 
To own another is aberrant. 
One cannot die for another's wrongdoings. 

If there were a god these attitudes and behaviors would not be acceptable.

Loren, you did it again! You made a powerful and positive statement with pride and self-respect for a well thought out position!

Comment was by Joan Denoo on August 23, 2022 at 2:29am

Ian, I love the old man and his comment on book banning!

Exactly.

"Atheists are too pushy" is actually code for: "atheists are presenting an alternative point of view!" and possibly one which they're not prepared to counter.  Personally, I have exactly ZERO problem pushing back on nonsense, and over the years and with the help of a LOT of well-informed atheists, I have become more and better prepared to do some very serious pushing back.

It's not for everyone, but at some point or other, believers need to understand that theirs is NOT the only POV out there.
