Would you rather be lied to by an Atheist, a Christian, a Jew, Moslim? Or do you have another preference?
Likewise, would you rather be killed by an Atheist, a Christian, Mosleim or Jew etc?
I don't know how the Irish catholics veiw protestants in Ireland but noticed that most of them don't care to be grouped together with protestants in the US as christians and would rather be called catholic. Mine would have been protestant from their but in the US I would rather be called an atheist.
