When should nontheists complain?

It is no secret that we nontheists are continually bombarded with religious references. Most of the time, we simply smile and ignore them, knowing that our fellow primates mean us no harm. And when we do complain, no matter how polite and courteous we may be, it is always taken the wrong way. So, when should we speak up?



My friend Margaret Downey wrote this letter to American Airlines concerning her recent trip her to Hawaii:… Continue

My Weekly Rant: Defending atheist fundamentalism?

I am sick and tired of pompous and senseless writers like Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News. He starts his recent dribble thusly:



And how did you spend your summer? Having more fun, I hope, than the English kids marched off to Camp Quest, a five-day atheist camp supported in part by Oxford scientist Richard Dawkins. The idea, Dawkins said, is “to encourage children to think for themselves.” Yes, well, as long as they don’t think well of religion, tykes are welcome to join his… Continue
