This is a very important message, which I've transcribed for your convenience below (followed by the text from Psalm 14:1-3 that was referenced, which is a passage that vilifies, in particular, anti-theists and miso-theists)...

The reason this message is important is that it highlights the discriminatory nature of the Christian religion (and in fact it applies to most other religions as well, including Vedic, Islamic, Mormon, etc.).  I don't accept the authority that many people have chosen to bestow on the ancient texts that arbitrarily discriminate, use scare tactics to impose their corrupt moral viewsets, and ultimately have a dividing effect on a populace by separating its members into groups of those who believe and those who don't.

Societies really don't need to be divided in this manner, and the key is in not imposing our views on others, but accepting that each person has free will and respecting their right to hold their own opinions.

To be clear, this doesn't mean respecting opinions, but respecting another's right to hold any opinions they so choose, for it is the imposition of opinions upon others that manifest as problematic.

How do you respect someone who says that you will burn in torment for all eternity if you do not agree with them?

Respect is impossible at that point.  You are threatening me with violence that exceeds the limitations of any suffering here on earth for the crime of not agreeing with your religion.

Your holy book calls me a fool (Psalm 14:1-3) and say that I can do no good.  Your beliefs and your religious texts discriminate against me.  They portray me as evil and corrupt.  Yet, you want me to show you respect?!

When you come to me pleading with me that I show your beliefs respect they do not deserve and which you and your religion fail to show me, the only response that comes to mind is a hearty and sincere "fuck you."

-- Tim H., The Atheist's Bible Commentary

[Psalm 14:1-3 (MSG translation of The Holy Bible)]

1. Bilious and bloated, they gas,
“God is gone.”
Their words are poison gas,
fouling the air; they poison
Rivers and skies;
thistles are their cash crop.

2. God sticks his head out of heaven.
He looks around.
He’s looking for someone not stupid—
one man, even, God-expectant,
just one God-ready woman.

3. He comes up empty. A string
of zeros. Useless, unshepherded
Sheep, taking turns pretending
to be Shepherd.
The ninety and nine
