The Proper Thinking Christianity Deserves

Christians often get upset with me and other atheist writers when we talk about the beliefs that a large number of Christians actually believe.

Every once in a while, I have to force myself to step back from the whole religion debate and get some prospective. Religious believers ask me every day why I don’t believe in God and I can rattle off any number of debating points.

What if you are a recovering Mormon and your polling place is in a Mormon Temple; could that discourage you from voting all together?
