The problem with cherry-picking

I recently watched a youtube post from Hemant Mehta, who I absolutely love by the way, where he spoke about "9 things Atheists should stop saying".  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2L9nuGVKdg0It's a brilliant video and filled with lots of great tips.

"No. You haven't failed. But there are a few things to consider. 1. Is the company in any way affiliated with any sort of religious organization? If yes, there's not much you can do except look for another job. I don't have a lot of…"

Ray K replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Brag about yourself!'
