Muehlenberg's Position on Name-Calling

Selected quotes by Bill Muehlenberg from Culturewatch:

Always great to see how the secular left “argues”. Not a scrap of evidence, facts, data, reason, rational discussion, or informed debate; just heaps of mud-slinging, name-calling and ugly ad hominems. But thanks again for demonstrating to the whole world how your side has no intellectual leg to stand on, relying instead simply on nasty abuse, hate and intolerance.

The last thing the other side wants is truth – so they resort to name-calling and mud-slinging instead of actually dealing with the evidence.

Yes I know that is how your side “argues”: simply resort to name-calling and mud-slinging instead of engaging in evidence and fact.
This week, Bill has written an article "On Name Calling" in which he has this to say:
If a person regularly denounces God, berates him and vents his anger about God, then it is perfectly accurate and correct to refer to such a person as a God-hater. That is exactly what they are, and Paul knew all about such folks, and consistently called them what they were.

So many believers today think we have to live in some sort of sanitised cloud, never saying anything that might even remotely be considered to be offensive or harsh. But the Bible is full of harsh and offensive language.
So apparently name-calling isn't fine if you hold a different opinion to Bill. Name-calling is entirely justified if you're an Xtian extremist who thinks it's appropriate to label atheists "god-haters".

There's a word for that.

It starts with "Hyp" and ends with "ocrisy".

Muehlenberg is full of it.
