← Atheist Richard Dawkins snubbed by Detroit area country club

It really is remarkable how all of Dawkins' credentials (evolutionary biologist, former professor at Oxford University, best-selling author, etc.) get overshadowed by the term "atheist." (Granted, he is briefly called a "scientist from England" as well, although this is a bit like calling Bill Gates "an American businessman.") Can anyone imagine a newspaper article calling Francis Collins "a noted Christian" while ignoring his contribution to the Human Genome Project and his role as director of the NIH?
