where is the outrage by the 'good' religious leaders?
You say banana, I say Atheist's Nightmare!
It all comes from mixing logic and religion, but just like my drinks, I keep on doing it without expecting a headache.

I don't have any idea of what God actually is, or isn't, and don't feel it necessary to discuss this word (it is only a word!) But I feel pretty close when I see or hear something that is exquisitely perfect.
...oh, and I'm probably saying deism precludes monotheism if you define monotheism not as a possible subset of polytheism, but as an exclusive single deity proposition.
I have the notion that they believe there is a "Something" but don't presume to know what. So to limit the options to a single Something would conflict with that. (I think they use the word God for simplicity, but are ultimately open to anything under cross-examination).
Personally I think they are just atheists who are horrified at the idea of being atheism.
