Nothing. Don't hate people who are different than you. We learned that in preschool, guys.

Neither of those things equate to hate, and certainly not (necessarily) hate toward other people. A lot of fundamentalists and antitheists, however misguided they may be, are concerned for the well-being of others.

"How dare you think something different than I do? You're WRONG! I don't care what experiences you've had that are vastly different to mine, you're wrong!!!"

This universalist crap from the modern era needs to die off. We're light-years past that in postmodernity, come into the light.

Is this in response to any particular person's opinions? I don't think I've seen much hateful antitheism or fundamentalism here.

No one in particular on here, no. But both are common cultural streams, and both are reactionary self-projection.

I find anti theism often comes as a response to fundamentalism. Just an observation I make looking at some of the more anti theist atheists on r/atheism.

They also approach the Bible in the same way: Literally, to the extent that that supports their interests. Joke groups of people, honestly.

There's nothing wrong with fundamentalism, it just depends what the fundamental is. Have you ever seen an Amish terrorist?

The Amish don't go around shoving s*** into people's faces and claiming exclusive truth, though.
