Ah, I just love it when the Faith-heads unwittingly make our argument for us.

Quite. You beat me to it!

Go to: Quentin Letts ranks Dawkins 30th on list of 'people who have wrecked Britain'

I have posted elsewhere that I'm the "Greg, Orpington" defending RD in the comments, as I'm slightly ashamed to admit this article got to me. I was very heavily edited, as my contrary opinion was clearly not allowed embellishment and I wrote another 200 or so words.

Just how schoolboy is this ridiculous book, anyway' "I'm putting YOU on my list of enemies. Na-na-ne-na-nah!!" Staggeringly inane and pathetic.

What else can we expect from a tabloid set up by a close personal friend to Oswald Mosley and Adolf Hitler' Daily Mail baiting is one of my hobbies, since my days working in a bookshop and having to sell the rag to idiots with permanently puckered up, lemon-sucking lips. They're beyond help. Baiting them is all that's left.

Go to: Fred Phelps's son is an atheist: Running from hell

To trueblueauzzie

I see your point, certainly. In my own experience, the opposite was the case. Some of my family members were, and continue to be, deeply hurt by, and suspicious of, my atheism. Which is of course absurd, but not following the belief system one parent holds very dear can to them seem like a betrayal, even though the other choice is to betray oneself.

My friends however, didn't bat an eyelid and always assumed I was atheist anyway. Most of them are heathens though, it must be admitted...

What a horrible story. Is Fred Phelps a drugs casualty, mentally ill, very religious, a combination, or something else entirely'

I hope things work out for Nate now. If friends abandoned him because he abandoned his faith I suppose they were only ever fairweather friends then. You find out who your real friends are during crises. At least he's climbed out of the mire of hellfire and nonsense.
