(Loosely adapted from an actual conversation.)
Atheist: Just tell me this. You know that one asshole preacher? The one with the hair and the big, weird teeth?
Theist: You're going to have to narrow it down a little more.
Atheist: Got caught nailing gay prosti...
Atheist: Yeah, him.
Theist: Yep, an asshole. What about him?
Atheist: You don't really think he believes any of this shit, do you?
Theist: Hrm. I don't suspect so. Not him.
Atheist: See what I mean?
Theist: No, what?
Atheist: Religion is a tool of exploitation! It makes assholes like him rich, while he fools and fleeces his flock!
Theist: I wouldn't say 'religion' does that, but yeah, it certainly does that at times. You think this happens often?
Atheist: I'm sure it does.
Theist: Alright. So you think it gets exploited by hucksters? Guys who don't buy any of it but see the use of it to make themselves rich?
Theist: And I guess politically useful too. You know, gin people up to go to war and sacrifice their lives?
Theist: And of course you think anyone smart enough to pull that often wouldn't buy any of it themselves?
Atheist: Right! How can you not see that?
Theist: Oh, I think the villains are a bit more diverse, and your description is one-sided and unfair. Still, doesn't this bug you?
Atheist: Why would it? I don't believe any of that shit.
Theist: Sure, but you realize what you just told me, right?
Theist: The worst kinds of religious people - the assholes who use it to exploit others, enrich themselves, abuse people - are actually atheists, according to you.
Theist: It's one thing for atheists to be responsible for atheist crimes - and those are numerous - but to have them be responsible for religious crimes too? That's some dark comedy there, pal.
Atheist: Maybe I was a bit hasty in thinking Haggard really doesn't--
Theist: Ah, of course...
