I'm all for saying that people who hold ridiculous views/beliefs make themselves ridiculous. Indeed, ridicule is sometimes the only appropriate response. It seems a little mealy-mouthed of us to shout 'ad hominem' every single time. It seems to line up with the theist 'hate-the-sin-love-the-sinner' logic.

Having said that, appropriately targeted ridicule: yes, expletives: no, hurled bricks: definitely no.
