Some would label atheism a thought crime

I've seen a few posts on other sites, etc. giving us images, and descriptions of douchebags... But this article was written by the epitome of the word.

Why in the name of God (oops sorry, didn't mean to be so insensitive/offensive), does RTE give an entire 'Liveline' over to a tiny rump of deranged atheists to spout their puerile propaganda? Just what is their gripe?

Well it turns out they are annoyed at the prospect that proposed legislation will make it an offence to gratuitously offend religion: in reality, Catholicism (their big bogeyman). The big question is, though, what kind of ideology gets it kicks out of gratuitously offending the sincerely held views of others? It seems both immature and vulgar.

Perhaps the best critique of this ideology is provided in the recently published 'The Irrational Atheist: Dissecting the Unholy Trinity of Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens', by Vox Day.

This brilliant critique clearly demonstrates why a mere anti-blasphemy law is not sufficient. In the interests of rationality and common sense, the legislation should go further and label atheism a thought crime.

Also, why is the publicly-funded state broadcaster giving these airheads a platform for their dangerous juvenalia?
