Everybody sort of has to find some way of doing it; for me, for example, it's meant making it as clear as possible to
my parents that playing their inane "praise and worship" music in my presence is the fastest way to render me violently

I believe we should struggle mightily for that friendliness. And I believe it's more difficult to achieve than ever before. We all trumpet the wonderful way that the internet has connected us all – [..] all of us are now allowed to
avoid entire groups of people with whom we disagree. Atheists don't have to talk to religious people – and religious
people aren't required to talk to atheists.
People who share a common religion ...
1) share a core set of beliefs and assumptions
2) share a common set of ethical beliefs or values
3) practice or participate in a common set rituals
4) identify themselves as [whatever the religion is called]
