Go to: Dawkins Foundation: Innovating for a Secular World. A Call to Action by Sean Faircloth, Madison, WI

I like this video and here in Germany did not know of Sean Faircloth before. If this is the "slimy politician" to fear I would be absolutely happy with ;) I like the idea of becoming a "tribune of justice". This vid had put a smile on my face.

Go to: Richard Dawkins, acclaimed author and member of Royal Society, shunned by country club in Michigan town

Happy National Coming Out Day! (May it be that this club confused Coming Out with Closing Out...?)

I would also recommend to use this publicly as an assist for a next goal, e.g. by still having your speech -- but out in public in front of the entrance of this Country Club.

Comment 10 by Michael Gray :

This is great free publicity that no amount of money could buy! They simultaneously shoot themselves in their ignorant feet, and kick up a fuss that young folk cannot ignore! I believe that the yanks have a phrase to cover this contingency: "A Win/Win Situation"!

Comment 36 by jel :

Just a couple of quick points. 1/This guy is innocent. Until the case comes to court and he is proven guilty he must be treated as innocent.

I agree with you, jel. -- At least on a court here in Germany this would be the morally right way of thinking. If the plan of the person they had arrested can be prooven (i.e. that he wanted to kill other people) this is to be regarded a crime.

However, I am more wondering why in U.S. such a media hype is made with a full face picture of this person, and probably his real name, although his case did not yet come to court. Furthermore, if the FBI had everything under control, why make such an act out of it?

I'd guess there may be a bit more to the story than what's shown in the Fox news clip.

Yes: In this article is stated that the order said that when this father had been a Christian, "the parties were able to communicate relatively effectively." So the inability to accept divergent views on the world seems to be the underlying core of this parents divorce...
