← A Bitter Rift Divides Atheists

This talk of a new atheism vs. make-nice atheism is something, i think, that needlessly diverts us from ending the bigotry we all face. When religion allied with the state was able to create laws against nonbelievers it did not matter if the particular faith tradition was conservative, moderate or liberal the infidel faced persecution all the same. We need to use all the intellectual tools available to us in combating religions relentless assault against the integrity of freethinking, rational, science supporting and ethical nonbelievers.
