If an atheist says "god does not exist" or "god is a lie" is that an attack, or expressing their opinion?
If a Christian says "there is only one god in one being, not one god in a trinity" is that an attack, or expressing an opinion?
If a Muslim says "Jesus was a prophet, not a deity" is that an attack, or expressing an opinion?
If it's an attack, is it a personal attack against you, or a generalized attack against everyone who practices the same version of your religion as you?
Should people be penalized in any way (consequences of free speech) for verbalizing their own beliefs if they contradict someone else's?

I think it depends on who you are talking to and how you state it and what is the nature of the conversation. I feel if you say I believe or I feel ......... that comes across more as an opinion. However just making some of those statements can be perceived as an attack. In all honesty I feel at first glance that the muslim comment comes across as more of an opinion than the other two.
