Atheists, use your brains!

So tired of atheist critics of religion, particularly Islam, talking about it as though all its followers were an homogeneous mass. Can't they see that's no better than religious people banging on about stereotypical atheists, as though we're all the same? Happy to say we're not.

Criticise how people behave, but don't judge them by their labels.

It's hard sometimes to discuss things without generalities but you make a good point.
I catch myself lumping all Christians or all Muslims together quite often. At these times I try and remind myself that I'm starting to sound like Pat Condell and give myself an intellectual slap.

Please don't sound like Pat Condell. One's enough.
