I wrote a letter to the President of University of Minnesota last week, before I saw this post here on the RDF site.

My letter:

------- Original Message --------
Subject: Don't give in to religious "outrage"
Date: Thu, 10 Jul 2008 15:35:53 -0500

Dear President Robert Bruininks,

I am a reader of the Pharyngula blog written by Professor PZ Myers. I have read about the Catholic League's attempts to interfere with the free speech rights of Professor Myers by inciting Catholics to write you to complain about things that Professor Myers has written in his blog. I urge you to disregard the so-called "outrage" over the blog posts on the subject of the "Eucharist" (the communion cracker deemed "holy" by Catholics). What is sacred to some is hilarious to others, and vice versa. For every Catholic who complains, there are two non-Catholics who find the entire matter to be a joke.

Please do not worry about the complaints from those who are easily offended by comments about a cracker. This whole thing is just silly.

Thank you,

... I signed with my real name.

I've been trying to read all the email and comments posted on Pharyngula but it's been tough trying to keep up!

Go to: Help Build The Reason Project Archive!

Response to gnarl, #12:

I don't see the Reason Project as any competition to the Secular Web at all. The Reason Project specifically seeks submissions of articles that are already published elsewhere. The Secular Web does have some old material archived (such as the works of Robert Ingersoll) but strives to obtain new material. It does not look like the Reason Project is interested in new unpublished material.

Go to: Does God Exist? The Nightline Face-Off

I thought that ABC's editing of the RRS debate was biased toward the Banana Twins. Sapient and Kelly did well, especially considering that this was probably the first time they appeared in public before such a large live audience.

It's interesting that this week is "Atheism Week" on ABC, but I've heard from several people that ABC's viewpoint on the various shows was somewhat biased against atheists. Still, it's good to see the media paying some attention, even if the attention isn't quite favorable. I wonder if the audience can see through the spin.

Thanks for the atheist viewpoint from Virginia Tech. Very well-said.
