Some atheists want to mold us into a very different sort of community. They want us to share their values, agree to codes of conduct they develop, adopt their standards of behavior, and they want the power to police the atheist community for infractions. They want us all to assist them in dispensing the punishments they deem necessary for those who say things they do not like.
Here is Christian Pastor Rick Scarborough explaining that his god would be justified in nuking the United States because we have gay ambassadors.
I suppose he was fed up by a segment of the atheist blogosphere whose ideology is so rigid that not only is dissent from its views prohibited, but mere discussion of some issues, particularly around gender, is also prohibited.

I cringe every time I hear the pseudo-word “mansplain”. It’s hardcore feminist slang for when a man comments on women’s issues in some purportedly unenlightened manner, and it exemplifies the kind of black and white thinking and reactionary antagonism that characterizes a small but vocal subset of modern feminists in that the term exists to broadly undermine any sort of discourse that doesn’t kowtow to an idiosyncratic point of view. Anyone who dares disagree is immediately branded and marginalized, further reinforcing the tribal groupthink that led to the creation of such a deplorable term in the first place.
