From Rationalwikiwki

Religion is the one subject which is guaranteed to push psychological buttons on RationalWiki.

Politically all active members are left of center in some way. They all espouse liberal values. Not one of then would dream of criticizing somebody because of their color or sexuality, but when it comes to religion all bets are off.

Of course color and sexuality are not really choices in the way religion is, so maybe the comparison is unfair. But anyway it's religion that gets people going.

And the strange thing is that everybody feels that they are getting a raw deal. Seriously. You can see it by the way they write. Both sides feel that the other is taking some sort of unfair advantage.

There are, of course, two ways to view this.

  • 1. If nobody is happy then the site may have found some sort of "balance of irritation".


  • 2. One view really is "right" and the others should get off the Wiki.

But it's not for rationalwikiwiki to come down on one possibility or the other.
