Here's an interesting retort for those Religious Apologists who try to silence rational and factual expression, and dismiss us by accusing us of either being evil, or of having contempt towards their beliefs; "You know how you always say you love the sinner, but hate the sin? Well, I don't hate the Religious adherent, who believes others are full of sin, I hate the belief that I am a sinner.
You bet I have contempt for thier beliefs. Why shouldn't I? They show contempt for my non believing and everyone else who believes differently than they do.
As for evil, if it can't be kept out of the church where can it be kept from? How do I know the person talking isn't evil themselves? They belong to a church, after all.
as @mischi also implied, sometimes you can only reach someone from within that person's own bubble. i have but two words for christian trumpkins: "golden calf." for generic evangelicals, i just tell them, firmly, that i am not interested. if they persist, i get firmer. i have not been converted yet, so it must be working.
Even though Jesus probably never existed as such, I use the name to silence most critics. I like to say, "I try to live every day in a Christ-like manner." (Which for the most part, I actually do.) Then I might tack on the comment, "Hardly any of the Christians I know do that."
