If you don’t like your beliefs…

Some years ago, I came up with a line that achieved some notoriety among atheists online: “People who don’t like their beliefs being laughed at shouldn’t have such funny beliefs.” It’s most often attributed to Anonymous but it’s mine.

It occurs to me that this is just as valid, if not more so: “If you don’t like your beliefs being despised, you shouldn’t have such despicable beliefs.” If you believe that your “holy book” is literally and completely true, especially if you adhere to one of the abrahamic faiths, then I’m looking at you.
