All Believers Are Not Created Equal – A Clarification | Al Stefanelli | Modern Atheism |

I have been asked why I “paint with a broad brush” regarding those who hold beliefs in deities; why I ‘”lump together” all believers. I find this to be extremely annoying because I don’t do this on the level that I am frequently accused of. Yes, there are areas in which I do paint with such a brush, and do engage in the lumping together of all believers. These areas are relegated to my categorical rejection of the existence of all gods, that all religious belief is a form of mental illness (the clinical delusion of adults with imaginary friends) and that religion has absolutely no place in government, public schools and any spaces that have been set aside for the use of the general public.
