Are you intentionally being obtuse? Or you really don't understand the analogy and/or what you just posted? If the latter, then I can't help you any. Seems plain enough to me.
Did the guy not say they do what they do because they perceive Christians as doing the same thing? Another member mentioned reciprocity. It's this tit-for-tat playground bulls# I'm referring to when I use the word "childish".
What other answer to his own question did he give? "You're in my face, so I'm going to get in yours." He may as well have said as much.

It's like Santa insofar as people might eventually grow up and stop talking about it, but the strangest thing is many non-believers continue to do so, to the point where they are nearly indiscernible from the believer.
Non-Christians spending their time preaching to Christians about God and church is an irony worth noting. So much devotion to contemplating God or the bible or Christians—it almost sounds like a new sect of Christianity.
But how dare you say that Christians don't accept other people when it is you not accepting Christians? That was a stupid article. The logic was full of holes. What a load of bull. Yeah, you're being so altruistic I'm sure. Right. Then act like it. Then maybe the Christians won't mind anymore because you'll be on the same page as them. Just sayin'.
Allah is just the same...... God, Jesus, Allah ----- all the same thing as Santa.
If you think this all sounds ridiculous or farfetched, this is exactly what it’s like living in large portions of the United States for people who aren’t Christians. This is why we keep engaging in public discussions about God. It’s because this idea—which other people seem to think isn’t any of our business—is all up in our business every day of our lives. That makes it our business.
The first thing you should realize in your quest to educate the masses is that Christianity, Judaism and Islam are not the same deity.

then what you are doing, spending your time preaching to non believers about preaching to believers? the agnostic wags their finger at the atheist wagging their finger at the theist. or in other words, the irony continues.
welcome to the holey trinity.

Or put another way......they dump on Christians, then they dump on Santa.
But, odd, isn't it......they never dump on Allah.

The funny thing is that Santa exists.
You all just missed your chance to see him.
He was at a lot of shopping malls a few weeks ago.
There are photos of him too.
I'm glad to hear you were spared the hell-fire, fear, and emotional pummeling that so many parents inflict (in a misguided effort to 'teach' them?) on their own children.
