Comment 15 by plasma-engineer- "Thank g*d..."- Why not write god? If you're a theist (Jewish) then it makes sense, but if you're not a theist, doesn't it make the whole Jewish/G-d thing pointless? Writing it that way gives some type of credibility or respect to something atheists/agnostic have no belief in.

Once again, if you are a theist, you're welcome here and your spelling makes sense. But if you're not religious, could you explain why you write it that way. It's not that big a deal, but I'm interested.

Mods- sorry if that is too off topic.

RD gave a good response saying that many religious people are secularists. They understand that it's a private matter and doesn't belong in the public sphere or in government. Secularism is all too often directly linked to Atheism.That's just intellectual dishonesty.
