I’ll tell you what you did with atheists for about 1500 years. You outlawed them from universities, or any teaching careers, besmirched their reputations, banned or burned their books or their writings of any kind, drove them into exile, humiliated them, seized their properties, arrested them for blasphemy. You dehumanized them with beatings and exquisite torture, gougd out their eyes, slit their tongues, stretched, crushed or broke their limbs, tore of their breasts if they were women, crushed their scrotums if they were men, imprisoned them, stabbed them, disembowled them, hung them, burnt them alive. And you have nerve enough to complain to me that I laugh at you.
