Like Pat, I have issues with the phrase "community cohesion", bandied around by politicos and pressure groups. What does it mean, how is it measured, why does it matter? Why should I accept anything being sacrificed in its name, particularly my right to free speech?

Some people think Pat is unnecessarily abrasive and arrogant, some think he tells it like it is, and some think there is room for all kinds of voices in the rambunctious atheist choir. I say this in the hope of forestalling dozens of posts arguing the toss about his style, but I doubt it will work... :)
