Public ranting against atheists from a senior Catholic educationist

In case you missed it. Here's great opinion piece from an Australian vice chancellor of a local Catholic university equating new atheists to a plague of blowflies or something from biblical Egypt. Excellent!

Here's link to the article in The Age newspaper: Age - Plague of atheists

And here's my comment: Catholics are hurting

Excellent response here: The new crybaby theists

Also blogger PZ Myers responded in his blog: I rather like frogs and blowflies, anyway

With the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention coming up in March, it is exceedingly generous for Dr Craven to give us atheists so much free publicity - and in a manner which has elicited so much sympathy for our cause.

The more he writes, the stronger we'll get.

The only thing is, I have a mental image of Dr Craven merrily typing his vitriol as God looks down and shouts, "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!"

Surely God needs better publicists.

Second, the Catholics have the undeniable advantage that they do still demonstrably believe in something. Attacking some of the more swinging Christian denominations might mean upsetting people who believe a good deal less than the average atheist.

I like how, while complaining about attacks on Catholics, he takes a demeaning potshot at other Christian denominations!
