    These people will be the modern Neros. They will set fire to the world in a nuclear holocaust and laugh as the world burns because they think they’ve brought about the Rapture.

    As freethinkers and atheists, we need to realize that your average Joe the Deist is not our enemy. These people are, and they’re our COMMON enemy. Groups like this manipulate the fundies and whip them up into a frenzy. They reach out to the more normal deists at election time to use their numbers to grow their power.

    At the end of the day, I would rather stand side-by-side with Joe the Deist in defense of this world against groups like this than watch it fall under their control. We need to stop alienating those who are willing to accept us. We don’t need to understand their belief in supernatural powers or try to “cure them of their delusions”. We need to work with them to eliminate this threat.
