Just stop pointing it out...

Excellent critique of the attitude of a lot of religious people, from J&M as usual. I often muse about how atheists are frequently called out by religious people for being "disrespectful" or "insulting" for simply pointing out the obvious, i.e. what it actually says in the Koran or articulating the logical consequences of certain things if they were true, like the problem of evil, or perhaps even something as innocuous as pointing out some distant news story about an abuse or religiously inspired terrorist act somewhere in the world.

"Victim" is a persona that unfortunately religious people in many quarters seem to slip into very, very easily.
