Theism is not a love object respected by all. Not even the religious. I have religion and I despise theism. I also hate spiders. But their existence is not something I have control over, or should want to have control over. You don’t have to like theism, and you don’t even have to defend it. But you don’t have to seek its destruction either. A lot of people depend on it. That’s what should be respected. Even if they don’t reciprocate.
