Anger, hostility, defiance, rebellion — all can be used to describe what I see and hear from entertainment, media, some blog post commenters and writers to the editor. Atheists, would-be atheists and many intellectual ‘elites’ seem unable to just be at peace with their own beliefs, but are covered by porcupine quills which come loose when near anyone or thing that speaks of faith. The barbs are designed to inflict pain and swelling, keeping the enemy a safe distance away from them lest their life style be challenged.
To choose that life view over peace, unbroken or restored relationships, order and contentment seems to me to be the height of folly. To each his own, I guess. Personally, I prefer the latter.
