Comment 8 by Jos Gibbons :

AtheistEgbert, why do you consider Gutting's latest piece the least bit thoughtful? Further, why do you imagine any genuinely thoughtful critique of the new atheists wouldn't be properly embraced by us?

Because I don't think new atheists are as rational as they think they are, nor do I think they are more ethical than the average Christian, nor any less politically naive. While I applaud their promotion of science and reason, they have not worked out any rational ethics or politics, and that makes up the vast majority of their opinions.
