The perfect response to this mindlessly regurgitated bullshit? Take the ideology of Jainism, whose central tenet is non-violence. The fundamentalist extremist Jainist wears a mask, a cloth filter covering his mouth and nostrils, so that when he breathes, he doesn't accidentally inhale and kill the world's tiniest fly.

You never know, though. Given human tendencies, atheists, too, may fall to fighting hand to hand for ideological purity, too.

Because failure to comply leads to eternal hellfire?

Mark my words. Theism isn't the only evil. Ask some people, and they'll tell you capitalism is evil. If you know enough theology, you can try to prove that capitalism is foundationally theistic.

If you know enough words, you can try to prove that all discussions are pointless sophistry.
